Bible Hygiene; or, Health Hints. By a Physician. (Hodder and

Stoughton.)—The objects proposed by the writer are, flrst, to present

in a condensed and popular form the elements of this study ; secondly, to point out the number, variety, and significance of the health hints in the Bible ; and thirdly, to show that the tendencies of modern philosophy run in parallel lines with the teachings of the Scriptures. The author wields an argument of no little force for inspiration, in the consideration of the originality of the Mosaic system of hygiene. Egypt, as we know, had an elaborate system of medicine, but no regular hygiene. The hook will be found useful in more ways than one.
