A news item from abroad Informs ns
that the American method of producing a
slim trim figure is meeting witn aston
ishirie success. This system, which has
made such a wonderful impression over j

that will reduce the excess flesh steadily I
and easily without injury to uie stomacn,
the causing of wrinkles, the help of exer

useful addition to civilization's necessi
