Children Cryfor Pitcher's Castoria. TlGHT LACING. I Wlien Man Ceases to Insist, Then Woinas WW Kelinquish the Practice. The hand of science falls with a dull, oncarnal thud upon the constrioted waist of woman. It tells why she constricts, and that the purpose iïm the beginning was an unholy one. "he women of decadent Greece first began it in order to emphasize the proportions of their hips and exaggerate the delusive proininetice of the bosom. In fine, squeezing the waist bronght into lostful prominence the capacity ol women for easy reproduction and subsequent plentiful lactation. Hippocrates denounced it in the wornen of Cos, Galen reproved the practice, Martial jeered at it, but still the waist was tightened, and the doublé ovoid continued to glide before the ardent gaze of man. The faet is, then, that women have tightene.l their girdles not because they wanred to do it, but because men 1 preved of them and desired tliem the ' more for it. Why should womeu, tu.en, ' be blamed? The practice is admitted unsound by all authorities, from j rate.s to Dio Lewis, but men havo ! sisted on it. Let sanitarian and artist direct their attention, then, to man, the brute, not to woman, his victim. When this carnal but necessary factor in society ! and dress reform is cured of his evil ways, women will dress as they ought, but not before. - Medical Record.
