The above is discussed in a chaste, simple, manner, and should be read 

by every lady. There is nothing impure in this book from beginning to 

end, but subjects in which women are woefully ignorant are discussed 

in a plain, moral manner to which no objection can be raised. 

 

Chapter seven: Marriage. 

 

What marriage is; how far back the marriage tie has existed; polygamy, 

what it is; monogamy, what it is; polyandry, and what it is; marriage 

customs; the basis of a happy marriage, etc. 

 

Chapter eight: Pregnancy--Labor--Parturition. 

 

Perhaps there is no more eventful period in the history of woman than 

that in which she first becomes conscious that the existence of 

another being is dependent upon her own, and that she carries about 

with her the first tiny rudiments of an immortal soul. 

 

This chapter explains all the signs of pregnancy; the changes that 

take place in the face and neck; the suppression of the monthly flow; 

changes in the breast, etc. 

 

Then it gives a sure test for the detection of pregnancy. It tells how 

a pregnant woman should live during the period of gestation. 

 

Childbirth is not necessarily either painful or dangerous. It can be 

accomplished easily and safely and with comparatively no pain by 

following the directions given in "THE LADIES' BOOK OF USEFUL 

INFORMATION." 

 

Numerous instances are known where ladies who had previously suffered 

with severe labor in childbirth have, by attending to the directions 

here given, been delivered of fine, healthy children with comparative 

ease. 

 

No mother who has attended to the teaching here given but has blessed 

the knowledge of it, and it has saved many a young mother much 

needless terror. 

 

It tells all about the ailments that almost always torment women 

during the trying time of pregnancy, making life itself seem a burden. 

 

These troubles are: Morning Sickness, Toothache, Palpitation of the 

Heart, etc. It shows that there is no necessity for women suffering as 

they almost invariably do during this time; but that these troubles 

may be overcome by simple, safe remedies which are described in this 

book, and which may be safely taken by the patient. 

 

It tells all about the medicine which is taken by the Indian women of 

North America during the period of gestation. It is well known that 

the women of these tribes suffer very little during childbirth, and it 

is almost all due to the effects of this wonderful medicine. 

 

The recipe for this medicine, "Parturient Balm," was obtained from an 

Indian doctor, and is given in this book, together with instructions 

as to how it is to be taken. 

 

This chapter alone is worth the price of the book to any lady. Every 

mother, and everyone who ever expects to become a mother, should 

carefully study the above chapter, as it may be the means of saving 

her much pain and suffering. 

 

The same chapter explains all about a case of labor; the signs that
