Not illustrated. 1879 edition. Excerpt: ...and where the hair comes out freely on brush ing or combing, I would offer the following as a proper line of treatment: If you are an accountant, take fewer hours at your desk, more in the open air; the hair makes a good barometer (in truth, aneroid barometers are made from hair) for the stateof health, as well as of the atmosphere, and when you thus find it being progressively shed, look carefully to your occupation, to see if that is not the cause. If you are indoors a great deal, get in warmer friendship with your gun, rod and line, and horse, or even take a relaxation trip. Don't wear your hat inthe counting-room, or store; go bare-headed as much as you can, and have your hat a ventilated one. If you are usingtobacco excessively, put the breaks on there; be temperate in. all things, and above all secure a good night's rest; court sleep, . "Tired nature's sweet restorer That knits up the unraveled sleeve of care." There is nothing like good, sound sleep to recuperate the nervous system, for this is the system that is first out of order when the hair begins to fall. Leave your figures in your ofiice; dou't take them to bed with you to dream over; or if you are an inventor, or writer, don't make your bed-room your studyroom, or your meal-time a convenient time for straightening out that kink, plot, or ledger discrepancy. Take three full hours every day to eat your breakfast, dinner and supper in, and a mile walk after each, if possible. All this done, and if yet you feel tired and exhausted, go to some physician who will look your case over for you, and see what organs are still at fault. The bowels should be kept regular, and for this purpose there is no remedy less harmless, or more to be depended on, more
