of clothing where it is least needed, thus generating unnatural local 

heat. 3. The custom of clothing the feet and limbs so thinly that they 

are exposed to constant chilling, by still further unbalancing the 

circulation, adds another element to increase the local mischief. 

 

All of these causes combined, operating almost constantly,--with 

others that might be mentioned,--produce permanent local congestions, 

with ovarian and uterine derangements. The latter affections have long 

been recognized as the chief pathological condition in hysteria, and 

especially in that peculiar form of disease known as _nymphomania_, 

under the excitement of which a young woman, naturally chaste and modest, 

may be impelled to the commission of the most wanton acts. The 

pernicious influence of fashionable dress in occasioning this disorder 

cannot be doubted. 

 

 

Reform in Dress Needed.--The remedy for these evils, the only way to 

escape them, is reformation. The dress must be so adjusted to the body 

that every organ will be allowed free movement. No corset, band, belt, 

or other means of constriction, should impede the circulation. Garments 

should be suspended from the shoulders by means of a waist, or proper 

suspenders. The limbs should be as warmly clad as any other portion 

of the body. How best to secure these requirements of health may be 

learned from several excellent works on dress reform, any of which can 

be readily obtained of the publishers of this work or their agents.
