Dr. Mosher has issued, through a university press, a revision of her excellent volume on hygiene for women. Her experience in the care of college women is reflected in this book, which is not only a guide to a proper personal hygiene but also an inspiration to the woman who wants to live a useful life. Perhaps the text of her volume is in the sentence "Under normal conditions, there should be no more women suffering with disorders of the generative organs than with disturbances of the digestion, respiration or the heart." The volume concerns not only the hygiene of sex but also the dietary and mental hygiene, the questions associated with healthful beauty, and similar subjects. The book is brief, its contents are easy to assimilate and, in general, it is a safe volume to place in the hands of any woman or growing girl.
