There arc probably several reasons for
this. One is , that they lived more in the
open air , and another , and probably the
most influential of all , is that they were
less prudish than the women of to-day.
They were not ashamed to know something-
ofthelrown physical make-up. They were
not too nice to take care of their health in
a womanly way. Women now-n-days suf
fer uutolu tortures in silence , because of
weakness and disease of the distinctly
feminine organism , rather than consult a
physician , or even talk utxjn thu subject to
their own husbands. They imagine that
trouble ; * of thh description can only be
cured by undergoing the disgusting exam
inations and local treatment insisted upon
by the average modern physician. Doctor
