This little book contains the substance of the lectures given by General Woodhull at Princeton University, and presents the important points on personal hygiene in plain and simple language. The first half of the book is devoted to a description of the body and its functions; the latter contains chapters on the development and care of the body, physical culture exercises, fatigue, elimination of waste, "catching cold," swimming, bathing and clothing, and the last three chapters are devoted to the questions of food, tobacco and alcohol.
