long experience. We have met cases in which young ladies were supposed 

to be in the last stages of pulmonary disease, were apparently gasping 

almost their last breath, panting, coughing, and experiencing the usual 

symptoms which accompany tuberculous disease of the lungs, when, upon 

making a thorough physical examination of the chest, we could find no 

evidence of pulmonary disease. In one case we incurred the everlasting 

displeasure of a young lady by disclosing the real state of affairs; 

but we were repaid in seeing an immediate disappearance of the symptoms, 

and complete recovery within six weeks, although the young woman had 

been considered hopelessly ill by her friends and physicians for six 

months, and was tenderly watched over, petted, and mourned by friends 

as one who must soon fall a victim to fell disease. 

 

The foundation of this disease is almost always laid in some 

indiscretion by means of which disease of the uterus is induced, and 

the most careful attention to this part of the organism is required. 

It should not be treated as a trivial matter which is wholly the result 

of a diseased imagination, and requires only mental treatment, since 

it is a real malady, dependent upon morbid states of the system. It 

requires substantial and thorough treatment as much as rheumatism, 

dyspepsia, or any other of the numerous diseases to which humanity is 

subject. 

 

Prevention Better than Cure.--We might mention numerous other diseased 

conditions which grow out of inattention to the laws of health relating 

to the sexual organism; but to dwell longer upon this part of the subject 

would be to depart from the plan of this work, and we must forbear. 

This whole class of maladies is noted for obstinacy in great numbers 

of cases when the morbid conditions have existed for a long time. In 

addition it should be remarked that some of the most inveterate 

disorders of the nervous system originate in this same manner. The 

thousands of ladies who are suffering with spinal irritation, organic 

disease of the spine and other nervous disorders, are witnesses to this 

fact. It is apparent, then, that prevention of these serious maladies 

by attention to sexual hygiene, especially to the hygiene of 

menstruation at the first establishment of that function, is a matter 

of gravest importance. In fact, attention to hygiene is about all that 

is required. With this, drugs will be rarely required; without, they 

will be utterly useless. 

 

Extra-Uterine Pregnancy.--Sometimes the ovum becomes fecundated 

before reaching the uterus, and, instead of passing onward into that 

organ as usual, remains in its position in the Fallopian tube or even 

on the surface of the ovary. Occasionally an ovum falls into the cavity 

of the abdomen instead of passing into the tube. Even in this situation 

it may be fecundated. Impregnated ova thus left in abnormal positions, 

undergo a greater or lesser degree of development. They commonly result 

in the death of the mother. 

 

Twins.--The human female usually matures but one ovum at each menstrual
