One should never bathe within
two hours after eating a hearty meal,
or just before going out into the open
air. I have known persons to take
deep cold from standing in a draft
immediately after having taken a
warm bath, when the whole system
was relaxed and particularly sensi
tive. Hot baths are debilitating,
and should not be indulged in unless
prescribed by a physician or admin
istered by a professional. ' By indi
vidual experiment, each should find
out for himself the temperature
which best suits his system, a cold
bath being usually most invigorating
to the warm-blooded person, while to

be taken to rub the body for several

not had a good night's sleep for twenty years
on account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic indigestion and dys

condition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie down and sleep all night as sweetly as a baby,
and I feel like a sound man. I do not think
there has ever been a medicine Introduced into
