The Science of Health and Home-making


ON the whole, this book is a satisfactory introduction to the science of health and home-making, though there are some loose statements which need revision in a future edition. After a brief introduction on the importance of health, succeeding sections deal with the structure of the body and the functions of the various organs, food and digestion, the nervous system, germs and disease, the home, clothing, cookery and housekeeping, the care of babies, and school hygiene.
