The indefatigable Dr. Andress offers here another textbook for students of hygiene. The present book is for seventh and eighth grade students and for junior high schools. It is a sort of vade mecum since it covers history, statistics, physiology, anatomy, personal and public hygiene, morals and what not. On the whole, the advice is sound and the book is interesting. One may well question the information offered on endocrine glands and on eitquette as parts of such a work, but after all the whole field is experimental and it is perhaps better to say too much than not enough, leaving the future to decide. The book is, like most textbooks of physiology for young people, off the whole truth on such subjects as tobacco and alcohol.
