sional fast Is conducive to well be
ing. Fasting confers benefits In gen
eral and In specMc cases. When
persons are in thaf condition for
which yon have a naive word of de
scription, "logy," which means
heavy and listless, tasting serves sa
excellent purpose. Usually the
"logy" Person has bees everted.
Let hint go back to nature for
lesson on how to cure himself, of
this disorder. When an animal ass

who has overtaxed his digestion

Let them suspend work for a time,
but only for a short time. Better,
in my opinion; a forty-eight hour
fast taken four times a month than
a fast taken for eight consecntlvs
In general, the body Is better off
for ss occasional relief to the di
gestive organs. But there are spe
cific Instances of the fast being of ,
great benefit ,
For Instance, I know a woman
whose beautiful figure was other
wise marred by sa enlarged abdo
men. When she came to me for ad
vice I ssked her to stand sod to
walk. I saw that she stood and
walked well. Then. I ssked her to
sit, snd I saw that her habit of sit
ting was correct She sat with her
weight equally distributed and rest
ing evenly on the balls of her feet
She sat somewhat though not awk
wardly, forward la her chair, so
that her spine was straight In
nose of these postures was there
any cause for the thrusting forward
ot the abdomen. Her corsets were
good and new, neither too tight nor
too loose. Believing that this puffy,
vulgar appearance was due to some
form of Indigestion, I suggested a
short fast I recommended forty
eight hours without food and with
plentiful drinking of hot water. Into
each glassful ot which was squeezed
the Juice of a lemon.
She repeated this every week for
five weeks, with no unpleasant re
sults and with the flattening of the
abdomen which she desired snd
which has greatly added to the love
liness ot her figure.
There Is much in favor of the
semi-fast, which Is not so great a

shock to the system. Better be ss
considerate ot our own bodies as
we are ot the feelings of our be

to begin fasting by seml-fastlng, or
by gradually diminishing the

A plan that seems to 'me worthy

first day subsist on milks, gruel or

the natural food, every one can train
himself to like, or, at least to swal

makes the water mora palatable,
but it stimulates the liver, so clear

When ready to break the fast I
have found it well to accustom the
stomach to the change back to food
by sipping orange juice that hss
been pressed into a cup or glass,
then to begin eating again by con

Then sterilize s pair of tweezers by

the skin from which they have been
removed with peroxide or some heal
