worth having or retaining. But what do these wise ones know! What do 

they know of the numerous subtle influences which gradually either 

strengthen or undermine our affections? Follow this advice and you 

will be grateful. 

 

=Do Not Offend Against Esthetics.= Some women think that because they 

are married to their husbands they owe the latter no esthetic 

consideration. Things that they would be horrified to let a stranger 

see they do before their husband's eyes without hesitation. For 

instance, not to beat about the bush, though the subject is not a 

pleasant one, they will urinate in their husbands' presence, or they 

will let him see their soiled menstrual napkins, etc. Some husbands 

may not mind it; but some men are very sensitive--men on the whole are 

more esthetic than women--and an indifference towards the wife may 

have its origin in some vulgar or unesthetic procedure on the wife's 

part. The sexual act, as mentioned before, is a very delicate 

mechanism, and it is very easy to disarrange it. The act of 

micturition before the man is known in many instances to have 

instantly abolished the man's sexual desire which was present before. 

And a man told me that because he noticed in a closet a lot of rags 

soiled with menstrual blood he was unable to enjoy relations with his 

wife for several months. You may think that these are all small 

things, but life is made up of little things, and many a married life 

went smash on account of disregarding the little things. 

 

=A High Stomach.= Avoid if you possibly can a high stomach, or a big 

stomach, or what we call in technical language a pendulous abdomen. 

Nothing is more fatal to woman's beauty--and to man's love--than a big 

stomach, and particularly a hang-down stomach. It at once takes away 

her youthfulness and makes her matronly--and matronliness is fatal to 

romance. It is not so much general stoutness that is objected to--some 

men, as is well known, prefer plump, stout women. And there are some 

savage tribes in which the preference is given to obese women with 

enormous abdomens, but this is not the case with the Caucasian 

race--not in civilized countries, at any rate, and surely not in the 

United States. First, reduce your carbohydrates, use massage and 

hydrotherapy, walk for hours at a time, but reduce your big 

abdomen--or, still better, don't let it get big. Prevention here, as 

elsewhere, is much better than cure. 

 

=Bad Odor from the Mouth.= I know of no other physical ailment which 

is so dangerous, so fatal to the permanency of the love relation as is 

a strong, offensive odor from the mouth. As a noxious gas blights a 

delicate plant, so will a strong bad odor blight the delicate plant of 

love. Yes, a strong malodorous whiff will cool the most ardent
