been written of
magic mirrors iu
which the future
was revealed. If
such a thine were
possible many a bright - faced bride
would shrink from the revelation of her
self, stripped of all her loveliness. If
there is one thing which would make a
woman shrink from marriage it is to see
the rapid physical deterioration which
conies to so many wives. The cause is
generally due to womanly diseases.
