indeed is this remedy that I do not hesitate to claim that the agent is a most valuable addition to our armamentarium.
Micajah's Wafers are used extensively in vaginitis, urethritis, prolapsus and other female diseases, but not until within the last year have they been known to possess the valuable property of deodorizing that scourge of mankind-cancer.

Expert Physical Training
IT IS A TRUISM that a healthy mind needs a healthy body. In this stronuous age when nervous affections are so prevalent, particularly the great American disease neurasthenia, this truism cannot be ignored. Most of such patients are materially benefited by physical exercises judiciously selected by one possessing the necessary qualifications, namely: extensive experience and a thorough knowledge of physiology and anatomy as applied to physical training.
A GREAT MANY PHYSICIANS APPROVE OF MY WORK for women and I wish that every physician knew what my personal work for women really is, and does, because physicians who fully understand it frankly welcome my help—they send me hundreds of patients.
EVERY PHYSICIAN HAS CASES in which an individual, scientific, personally directed course in proper exercise, breathing, bathing and diet would greatly assist to build up.
MY EXERCISES WILL MATERIALLY HELP YOUR CASES of chronic constipation, torpid liver, indigestion, anemia, neurasthenia, weakened heart muscles, undeveloped lungs, poor circulation, uterine displacement, increase the oxygen carrying power of the blood, by building up and strengthening the physical and nervous system.
I STUDY EACH PUPIL'S SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS, and prescribe for her individually, just as you prescribe for your patients. I give no promiscuous exercise, but direct each woman according to her needs and her strength. I have spent years in the study of anatomy and physiology, and accept no cases where pronounced pathologica, conditions are present, as I know the possibilities of my work and I know its limitations.
FOR 12 YEARS I GAVE PERSONAL INSTRUCTIONS TO WOMEN before attempting instructions by mail. Upon request, I will send you full information concerning my work. I have written the following books: A Good Figure; Circulation; Body Manikin and Position of Vital Organs; Ideals and Privileges of Woman; Character as Expressed in the Body; Mind Over Matter-The Nervous System; Effect of Habit Upon Life Foods; Self-Sufficiency-Mental Poise ; Motherhood; The Vital Organs—Their Uses and Abuse.
