Science finally has found a way to
free the mothers of the world from
pain at their hour of greatest trial
By means of "Sunrise Slumber,'' a
method only perfected since "Twi
light Sleep" failed and. faded, child
birth has been rendered "perfectly
painless, without endangering either
the life of the mother or child.
"N20 and 0" is the cabaalistic sign
of this, the greatest boon of all to
woman. It stands for nitrous ovicT
.and oxygen, by means of which "pink
babies," healthy, and normal, are born
instead of the dreaded near asphyx
iated "blue babies" so often, the re
, suit of "Twilight Sleep."
The "gas method" as it is called by
physicians has been known, to the
medical TKprM-f orva dozen yearsas.
