"'The True Science of Living,' in its adaptation to the needs of humanity, ranks, in my estimation, with the writing of the Egyptian prince, the Jewish law giver, the inspired Moses." Amos R. Collins, M.D. , Westerly, R. I.

"To live according to the teaching of either of these books would soon make a new race." J. W. Dill, M.D., D.D.

"A book written by a man with a burning conviction, and bearing an introduction by an eminent preacher who has tested the treatment recommended in it and found therein a great reinforcement of intellectual and spiritual power, which he attributes directly to having followed its teachings, is sure to have more than a kernel of truth in it, and, written in a lively, conversational style, will not be 'heavy' or a bore to those who read it." The Independent, New York.

"The book is given in the form of plain lectures; it holds the interest from the first chapter, and its logical reasoning cannot be gainsaid." Chautauquan.

"Taken altogether, 'The New Era for Women' will be found worthy of a place in every household, and should be read by every woman in the world." Chester County Times.

"Plain, common sense, devoid of puzzling, technical terms. Every woman who cares for ideal health should purchase this book, and help to inaugurate the 'new era' for her sex." The Search Light.

THIS BOOK IS

GRATEFULLY DEDICATED.

PREFACE.

This volume is a history, or a story, of an evolution in the professional care of the sick. It begins in inexperience and in a haze of medical superstition, and ends with a faith that Nature is the all in all in the cure of disease. The hygiene unfolded is both original and revolutionary: its practicality is of the largest, and its physiology beyond any possible question. The reader is assured in advance that every line of this volume has been written with conviction at white heat, that enforced food in sickness and the drug that corrodes are professional barbarisms unworthy of the times in which we live.

E. H. DEWEY.
