Women Are Martyrs
to Dame Fashion.
They Wreck Health and Race Because
By Dr. ADELAIDE MILLS of New York.
.! x is not only sad, but outrageous and almost uncivilized,
the way iu which women of. today take their lives
in their hands by dressing as they do. They seem
to have NO REGARD FOR THE LAWS OF
HEALTH, if they know anything about them, and
every day the victims offered to tho Goddess of
Fashion are increasing.
BY THEIR PRESENT STYLE OF DRESSING THEY ARE NOT
ONLY ENDANGERING THEIR OWN HEALTH AND LIVES, BUT THEY
ARE MENACING THE COMING GENERATION, AND IF SUCH FASH
IONS AND MODES CONTINUE WE CAN EXPECT NOTHING MORE
NOR LESS THAN A RACE OF WEAKLlKiGS.
"What are the points in present dress that ore so dangerous?
They RUN FROM THE CROWN OF HER HEAD TO THE
TIP OF HER TOE and arc throe in number hats, corsets and
shoes. In the misuse of these three articles you quickly bring about
tho deterioration of a race.
There are MORE WOMEN SUFFERING FROM NERVOUS
DISORDERS AND HEADACHES TODAY than ever before, and
if you will ask any physician I am certain he will agree with rac that
it is due to this exaggerated and unhealthy mode of dressing from
head to foot, both in under and outer garment.

It's a splendid thing, this giving every man a chance. I have
heard so ninny stories of your young men who were poor and worked

Our manifest inability to deal promptly and ef
fectively with corporate abuses from which we are suffering seems to
have destroyed their confidence in us. As a result, they are afraid pf
our securities as permanent investments. They are the speculative
football of every stock exchange in Europe, duo to our IGNO
RANCE OF THE SCIENCE OF GOVERNMENT AS APPLIED
TO THE CONTROL OF CORPORATIONS.
THEIR GREATEST DANGER LIES IN THEIR POWER, FIRST, TO
ENHANCE PRICES AND THUS REAP ABNORMAL PROFITS; SEC

the story of the shooting, asserts
Ketchel made Insulting remarks to

Ketchel and himself and he then com
