Checked perspiration is the fruitful
iauso of sickness,; disease and death
to multitudes every year. Heat -is
constantly generated within the human'
body 'by. the chemical disorganization
tHe combustion of the food wo - cat.
There aro seven millions ' of tubes or
pores' on Jtho surface; of tho'- bply,
which in health aro constantly' open,
conveying from the system, by what
1$' called ! insensible perspiration,- this
Internal heat, "which, having answered
its purpose, passes cfF like tho jets of
steam which ere thrown from tho es
cape, pipes; iri puffs, of any ordinary
steam engine but this insensible,
perspiration' carries with it, -in a dis
solved form1, very much of the" waste
matter of the system to the extent of
a .pound or two, or more, every twenty
four hours. If, then, the pores of the
skin are :clpsed--if the' multitude ' of
valves which are placed over the whole
surface of the human body are shut
down, two things take place. First,
the internal 'neat is prevented rfrom
passing off,' it accumulates every mo
ra e n't, the person expresses himself as
burning up, and then large draughts of
waier arc swanowea uucu tue

the warm8team"is constantly escaping
from the'body'in health, it keeps the
skin moist, and there is a soft, . pleas
feeling and warmth about it, but when
the pores are closed, the skin, feels
