THE TOWNS HOSPITAL needs no introduction. For 14 years

the treatment has been administered successfully. It is a strictly

ethical work, under the supervision of physicians in a real Hos-
pital devoid of sanitarium features.
The Towns treatment is administered only in the Towns Hospital in
New York; it has no connection with any other institution. The course
is brief-so brief that it is of distinct advantage to out-of-town physicians
who wish to come to New York with their patients and follow the
treatment, no part of which is secret.
PRIVACY is a feature of this hospital; we are not interested

in the social position of a patient; we do not group
or mass our patients together; each is treated individually. Patients are
separated and not permitted to invade the privacy of each other.
THE TOWNS METHOD has been fully explained

in articles appearing in
the Journal of the American Medical Association, and reprints of these and
articles from other publications, together with a booklet containing full
information as to the treatment, duration, terms, etc., will be mailed on

M. W. application.

As all practitioners know who have ever treated uterine cancer, the odor which it emits is most overpowering. In fact its sickening nature and its persistence have to be known to be fully understood.

I ingly had them tried in the city hospital, and they have proved a most efficient agent for this purpose. So valuable

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.
