This is a small volume on private hygiene, the hygiene of the family, and is addressed more particularly to the non-professional reader. Avoiding scientific terms and tedious details, and dealing with his subject in an easy, pleasant style, the author has certainly presented his readers with a highly entertaining as well as instructive book, filled with valuable hints regarding the attainment and preservation of health, good morals, and happiness. Its pages are enlivened with witty remarks, pleasant anecdotes, and a kind of insinuating good humor calculated to improve the assimilating capacities of a confirmed dyspeptic, or even make an hypochondriac feel on better terms with himself. Altogether, it is one of the best books of the kind with which we are familiar.
