Tbo National Publishing Company ol
St. Louis, havo Just issued a vory import
ant and valuable work, by Prof. 0. S.
Fowler, on Manhood, Womanhood, and
tbolr Mutual Interrelations ; Love, its
laws, power, etc. It is a mastorly ox
position of tho laws which control tbo re
lations of tho sexes., and their duties to
wards eaoh other, and it is not asserting
too much to pronounco it tho most valua
ble audtimoly publications of the age.
"Know thyself I" was tho profound In
junction of the ancient sago, and it Is tho
neglect to comply with this prcopt which
cnueos nearly all tho misery and sickness
of tho world. It Is astonishing to find
how utterly ignorant mon and womon,
otherwise accomplished and intelligent,
nro concerning thornsolvcs, Husbands
and wives constantly feel tho ncod of
moro light on thu subject of their relations
to each other, especially concerning tho
great duty for which marriage was insti
tuted tho begetting and rearing of a
It is for the purposo of (Utilising this
knowledge that Prof. Fowler hat glvon
to tho world this work on "Sexual bci
once," which is simply an explanation of
tho laws which govern tho soxos in rela
tion to each other. Ho points out tbo
duties of husbands and wives and dis
closes facts of which no true man or
woman ought to be Ignorant, Ho lots us
into tbo secret of female health and beauty
far Into old ago, and shows how mothers
can avoid much of the sufferrlng of bring
ing children into tho world a subject In
which ovory woman is intorosted, and
how "female complaints" may bo ayoided
with caso and certainty.
His book is puro and elevated in its
style and Ideas, and furnishes practical
solution of many of tho most porplexlng
questions ol llfo. It should be road by
the young and old, by tho married and sin
gle, and especially by those contemplat
ing marriago. It touchos upon quostions
and discusses them thoroughly, in which
very person is interested. Tub advl:
which it glvti to unhappy or Indifferent
husbands and wive is sound and practical,
and Its wsrnlmji to those who 100k to pro
mote ploaiuro at tho oxpenso of health
ought to bo read by ovoryone. Tho tcr-
Iblo practice of "regulating tho slzo of
families." wh'.cb prevails In many parts
of our country, is shown in lU truo light,
and wo commend the chapters concerning
it to every husband and wife.
All frionds of morality and purity in
social llfo will hail the advent of Prof.
Fowlor's book ulth dollcht. and thoso
who seek information upon thu curious
and tragic foaturos of domestic life, thoso
who would study human naturo stripped
of its marks and dl'gulfcs, will Ilnd this
volume tho best hand-book In oxistenco.
Young mon who value their domostic hap
piness, should not fall to read his remarks
on the subject of soloctlng a wife, as tho
information It contains is beyond value.
Tho book is a roal blessing t tho pub
lic, and will bo regardod as such by all
who read it. The low price at which it Is
Issued brings It within the reach vl atli
and every prsn who wants to arrivo at
a proper understanding of the true rela
tion of the sexes, should proenro a copy.
It is sold by subscription onlv, and Mr.
G. W. Tompkins, who is tho autborizad
agent for thH section, is now canvassing
for it.
