Why Isone woman attractive and another
not? The most admirable and attractive
thing about an attractive woman is her
womanliness. Everybody admires a wo
manly woman. She must have health, of
course, because without it she would lose
the brightness or her eyes, tlie rullness ol
her cheeks and her vivacity. Ileal health
must mean that a woman is really a woman.
1 hat she is strong ami perfect in a sexual
way, as well as in every other. Hint she is
capable of performing perfectly th duties
of maternity. Home are born with what is
called "constitutional weakness." Those
who do not enjoy perfect health, need only
tnke the proper precautions and proper
remedy to become perfectly well and strong.

we hear this expression. What does it
mean? It means that people are losing
Ilesh, growing thin, wasting. The way to
correct this condition is to improve the
digestion. The condition arises from
inability to eat and digest food. In fact
food does more harm than good because
it ferments and putrefies in the stomach,
developing Poisonous substances which
when absorbed cause various disorders.
What is required is that the stomach be
made to perform its duties. The Sha
