Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ...a wide sale, but the new interest awakened in this class of literature by this magazine and the publications and doings of the Pennsylvania-German Society will give books like this a new demand. Small quarto, pp. 143, 50 cents. History of Lehigh County. Gemaelde aus dem Pennsylvanischen Volksleben. This is the title of a handy medical guide, written and placed in our hand by an oldtime family physician, Dr. W. P. Kister. He was then (twenty-five years ago), a country practitioner residing at Schnecksville, Pa. His practice was the ordinary rural kind in bulk and success. He has since found his way to Allentown, and attuned himself to the boom of that remarkably growing city. His practice is immense, requiring nine horses and footing up a total earning of $25,000 annually for self and son, Eugene, an eye, ear, nose and throat specialist, and a graduate of one of the best medical schools of the land. The book will doubtless do much good and by those who use it intelligently, will soon pay its cost in saving more expensive forms of medical advice and help. We congratulate our old friend upon the achievement of such signal success. By Mrs. Emma F. A. Drake, M.D., cloth, 50 cents net. Vir Publishing Co., Philadelphia, Pa. The author, herself a wife and mother and practicing physician of large experience, has furnished in this little volume a most valuable guide and handbook-to the large class of women who need that varied and helpful information which allays anxiety when approaching maternity and which delivers from peril in that critical period. This book, in plainness and purity of diction is properly associated with the now famous Purity Books in the Self and Sex Series, written by Sylvanus Stall, D.D., and published by the same company....
