By Elizabeth Stuart flotley, In Leslie's Weekly
KtatiHtfcs anl medical records show
that nine-tenths of the women of the
Unite! htates nrc nufferer from some
rt of ailment while the percentage
of sickness or infirmity amrmg men is
yry mucli lower. With this astonish
lag HiiMiunt of ill health among the
Diothrra, wive and daughters of the
eountry, the question naturally urines
jiiHt now whether or not American wo
tnen are becoming healthier or other
Wie. It has been the fashion re-
eTitly to proclaim (that the tendency
.toward outdoor life golf, horseback
riding, walking, and that aort of thing
making the woman of the Unitel
Hiatus a stronger, more vigorous, snd
hard leing than she wss'a generstion
$;. But what percentage of the
wool number of American women
fcave time or means for golf, horaebaek
riding, and long walks across country?
The number who indulge in these good
and healthful exercise is. so-small in
nmMrtaon with the millions who have
do opportunity for such thing that it
i hardly worthy of consideration in
ths diacufflion of the whole subjecf.
The doctors and the books, on hygi
ene aarribe to three - principal causes
tbe inferior hesltb of American wo
men. One of these is their lack of out
lwr eserciae, the second lit their man
of dreasiag, snd the thiol the nerv-
' "ui tctmion. un ler which all American
' women Jive, t And when we say "man

.the custom of lacing. A few months

t'lfht lacing, waa- gradually disappear

farce. . ' , . - . '
But now a new condition has arisen.
..H is apparent that it we are not care
'!, we will revert to the former un
comfortable ' and dinastrous state of
i'ght lacing, -It suddenly became ree
' agnized thst V waist are to be a little

ny have resulted from the fashion
-."t ermittNt larger waists may now
loot by the reversion to the former
custom.- , ; ;- " ';
Women, I think, liave come to accept
. a Inevitable that they must suffer
pais tkan men. Thev even feel
aort.of pride in taking th attitudej
"'y resign themselves to it and then
point out the sct that ther-are making
7 rt'fice to the rate. They uiaiutaia
a W'ti of mjntery about this suffering,
alxiut the paahat makes them pale
ani lafguid snd unhappy, Ifow ab
surd thia ia anl bow difTerent from the
attitude ' of mi vn the same subject
Vou never saw a- man, certainly not
one who approached the normal state,
who' took a prrJe in' bin afflictions.
They sre anxious enough for csre jnd
attention, I believe, during their ill
ness, bat they are eager enough to get
well when sickneaa comes and proud of
it when they "have recovered. The same
should bo true of all women.
It is sbsurd to ssu me that nature
has designed that one sex should be
leas hesltby than the other. As a mat
ter of fact, all disease is unnatural.
Pain is simply the signsl which the
boly gives to the directing intelligence
ttt the human being that it is being
abused. When these warnings are ob
served and th cause of them removed,
suffering eessesj snd the sooner these
general facta are understood and hon
ored in the observsnce by women ss
well as men, the better it will be for
the whole race, i
I do not Inten 1 to attempt a full ex
planation here of the fact that women
are so winch less Jiealtby than men f but
what I want to emphasize. is that there
is absolutely no reason why this should
be so; asd as further evidence, I am
going f describe a new and important
Movement, which, proceeding on the
logical! theory that it Is wholly unnat
aral for women to suffer more pain
than men, has made during tk last ten
rears tremendous prosrres throughout
,be Uoited Htates a 1 Karope. This
new propaganda is known as the lavi
movement, snd hsd its beginning la
San Francisco, tTslifornia." The organi
zation has representatives in every city
aud towa of importance throughout the
whole United .Htafes, and many In
KOTope and other parts of the world.
The Viavi adherents are conducting
campaign of eiucation, endeavoring
to.disnl the , false eustom that haa
countenanced and even romel!ed ig
norance among women of facts tnst are
necessary for their own happiness and
well belag. . .
- The lack -of knowledfl-e among women
of simple aygiane bss furnished an op-
portunity for an enormous amount. v
imposition, an ojorlunity of which
many have with great alaerity availed
fhorr.aelvea. The Visvi cult hold tnst
woman should know more about her
self. .They are opposing the impost.

Wm feel a rain fn the bead, for In

is then more seripus, snd cannot
be removed always ' by altering the,
condition that brought the disease
into existence. The unhealthy state is
both local and general, and in the
process of cure this fact 'should be rec

with the right food the weakened con

In advocating! this eommon-M'nsS
metho)! for the restoration of health I
am promulgating the plan which from
my own iavewtigation I have observed
has proven successful tn thousands'and
probably thousands of thousanda of
cases by the adoption ttt the Viavi sy
tem for women. I wss surjtrised at
first by the evidence of the success of
this ida, for I siw that women , who
had been afflicted for years, who had
offrel oceans of pain, who bal aid
out thousands of dollars in doctors'
bills, who hsd Isvn - oeprived of the
jo, privileges, and benefits of life-rl
saw these women I enthusiast ie memfMrs
of tbe Viavi organization; and, as wss
quite natural' under tho circumstances,
the most earnest advocate of the sys
tem. On further investigation snd
sfter attenmng-lectures at. the ? New
Vork office I began to uiflerstsnd the
system .more thoroughly, n4 iwm be
come a convert myself
Tliee lectures,:! may say, sre open
to any wotnsn, sad information can be
obtaineil atiout them by writing to the
Viavi office ia any of tho large cites.
The talks are givenof f ocrsc;by. those
mo have full anad complete koswledge
of the eabject, snl they are frank and
tremendously instructive. The- sub
stance f the lectures will b given to
yoo. no doubt, if Jim request it.
.The effects off the Viavi movement
are becoming so widespread that, I am
sure that before long American women
ss a whole wiU be largely, affected by
it, and we wilt come to be distinguish
ed a a nation of healthy women. For
te principles of, thia new organization
are not only effective ia euring disesse,
but erntairt "practical metbo la by which
health is permanently maintained-; ' and
those practical methods have much to
do with tbe every-day mode of life.
I ' am tliemwgbly enthuaiastie in
preaching the gospel of health. ' There
are many peTaen who have suffereH so
much pain thst their view of life are
warned. There is no better soil f?r the
development of evil character than the
unhealthy body. We all admire "tbe
happy hearty, healthy man, or woman.
