HEALTH AND EDUCATION.
An Interesting Interview With Dr.
Lucy M. Hall.
New York, Dec. 31.—0f all the ghosts
which, like Banquo’s, refuse to down, there
is none which bobs up more serenely persis
tent than the s](eetre of the idea that the
health of the future mothers of the country
is being ruined by the modern demands of
education. Volleys of statistics have 110
appreciable effect upon the wraith, ghosts
being, as is well-known, invulnerable to
bullets and indifferent to figures.
If the danger in this direction were any
thing more than an imaginary one, the
women physicians, whose practice lies
almost entirely among women and among
growing girls, would be the first to notice it
and to cry out against it, ami it was with
the view of getting a trustworthy medical
opinion on the subject that I asked for a
little information from Dr. Lucy M. Hall a
few days ago.
There is no trained observer in the country
who has given more attention to the health
conditions of women than Dr. Hull, who, as
resident physician and Assistant Professor of
Physiology at Vassal- College, was in a
position to follow from day to day and from
year to year the effects of continued mental
effort on girl st udents, and whose experience,
based on a comparison of private practice
with college practice, is therefore, of
especial value. Dr. Hall, whose home is in
Brooklyn, is one of the best known and most
successful women physicians of that city or
of New York. She is not given to talking
for publication, but feel - an especial interest
in the topics on which I questioned her. The
first query which I put was:
"Have you found that the girl who
wishes to study is, as a rule, physically
injured by the*strain of the so-called higher
Rules are hard to formulate, liecause every
thing depends on the individual; but in
general it is safe to say that the health of
college girls averages better than that of
girls out of school and without occupation.
College woik is often a good physical tonic.”
“How do you account for benefit to health
from increased mental effort?”
“On elementary principles. If one could
give the same definite direction to the lives
of young women witji which young men
grow up, invalidism would be diminished
among them one-half. Aimlessness and
idleness—stagnation—result in physical as
well as mental dege teration. Given a
worthy aim, something to work for and to
live for, and the strength to pursue it will
often come of its own accord. The President
of a college for women once told me that
many girls were admitted to its classes in
poor health, sometimes also mentally de
pressed. Fairly started in their college life
they improved rapidly in health and spirits.
I have seen the same thing so often myself
that it has come to seem a matter of
course. A young girl is sent from home
reluctantly, with many cautions to teachers
and physician to regard her delicate
physique. She gains in weight, she gains in
strength, she is rosier as a sophomore than
she was as a freshman,and she excites general
attention as a fine healtliy-looking young
woman by the time she arrives at the
dignity of a senior. She has profited in
mind and body by the blessed gospel of
“Do you mean that study is per se bee
“I mean that a definite interest in life of
any worthy kind is beneficial. Here is a
good illustration: The head of a large dry
goods house gave me, at my request, com
parative health statistics of the men and
women in his employ. In a year’s time the
number of excuses for absence on account
of sickness offered by the women was nine
times relatively the number given by the
men. Many of the women lived at home
and had not quite the sense of responsibility
felt by a man with a family to support, so
that the figures do not mean that the health
of the women was one-ninth as good as that
of the men. The proportion of absences
among the women occasioned by illness
sufficiently serious to have kept a man at
home was as two to one. But here is the
significant part of his statement; where the
average woman lost two days to the male
clerk's one, the exceptionally intelligent
women who held responsible positions,
were heads of departments and earned la ge
salaries, enjoyed unsually good health, and
lost less time by reason of illness than any
man in his employ. Those were women
with an object in life, living for something
definite, ambitious women, if you ehoo.se to
call them such, and, partly for that reason,
well women. The head of the training
school for nurses at Bellevue Hospital says
that it is a general experience for the young
women entering there to gain steadily in
health. The work is hard, the nervous
strain sometimes severe, and there is much
study required; but the girls go there
because they want a worthy occupation,
and finding something which satisfies them
in that respect, they are helped in other re
spects, too. It is the same with college girls.
Their course of study, their associations and
surroundings change the whole current ot
their lives, and for the better, not for the
worse. The higher the grade of work done
by women the fewer interruptions to health
are likely to be found in consequence.”
“How will the health of young women in
school compare with t hat of young men j”
“The records are very favorable to the
girls. The tables of excuses for absence on
account of illness for throe consecutive days
and upwards which I kept at Vassal- for a
year gave an average to each student of
1.70 davs. The corresponding tables at
Amherst gave 2.65 days to each of the young
men there. The Vassal- tables for the last
school year are not yet complete, hilt they
show results equally good. Smith College
claims ft lower percentage of illness than
Amhei-st, and Wellesley's figures, allowing
for all days of illness, gave an average of
two days only to each student. The Principal
of 8 worth more College, a coeducational
school, told me that much more anxiety was
there felt for the health of the young men
than of the young women. There are no
figures for Michigan University, but the
health of girl students certainly does not
fall below that of the men. When President
Bascom, of the University of Wisconsin,
kept the health records of that school for
1877,without the* knowledge of the students,
the ratio of excuses was one woman to three
men. President Bascom has written more
recently that, other things being equal, the
young women bear the mental strain and
sedentary life involved in a college course,•
as well, if not better than the young men.
It is an easy matter by injudicious eating
aud dressing to injure one’s health and call
it over-study, but with good habits in those
respects, with regular exercise, out of doors
and in the gymnasium, a mental stimulus
will contribute to a physical stimulus. A
woman runs fewer dangers in college than a
man, because she is less liable to lie led into
dissipation. Her health will bear comparison
with her brother’s, if they entered college
on anything like equal terms, and she stands
in nil probability a better chance for a
healthful womanhood than the sister who
stays at home, especially if the sister does
not find herself anything in particular to
“If it is the well directed effort that im
proves the health what becomes of the
graduate who has nothing to do when she
lea ves school ?”
“I can answer by an illustration. A lady
came to me in some anxiety about her
daughter. The girl had been vigorous
during her school aud college life, but had
lost her color ami grown languid since.
Nothing seemed to ail her, but she was not
well. I put a number of questions and
finally asked what she was doing. Nothing
in particular, ber-mother said. 1 inquired if
a key to the enigma did not suggest itself,
and the lady at once remembered that she
haii herself almost gone into a decline on
leaving school, when she was a girl, Iss-ause
she fretted herself ill from sheer idleness.
Hhe had taken a school and won back her
health by hard work teaching; but,
curiously enough the probable difficulty
and the obvious remedy had not occurred to
lier in the case of her daughter. Many girls
are out of sorts on leaving school whose par
ents think it the natural reaction from men
tal strain and prescribe a long rest, during
which the trouble only increases, whereupon
education for girls is discredited in that
household. In good truth it is not work,
but stoppage of work, that hurts. The
girls, after an active mental life at school,
are stranded suddenly with nothing to
think of aud grow ill In mind and body both.
The better the education the more likely
this is to happen, however. The brain that
has had thorough discipline will not let itself
rustout. It has learned the blessing of effort
and will make graduation a starting not a
“It is safe then to teach a woman to
“The woman who is mentally well
balanced, is the woman who is most apt to
be physically strong.”

A Reflection After Christmas.
Calmly reviewing the scenes of our ante-
Christmas triumphs, reflections of various
kinds and degrees of interest stand up in our
miud in serried phalanx, and will not down
at a mere bidding. Some of them take this
shape. Numbers of people havo not yet
made their purchases. Some hadn’t time
during the hurry and flurry of Christmas
week, aud others, whose wisdom must not
go for naught, thought that perhaps after
Christmas prices might shrink a little.
Well, they have, we admit, weakened a lit
tle ut del - stress of tradt* that is t he least hit
quiet, and some very sober reflections urge
us to Sell, Hell, SIvLL, and not have any
thing of a “winter” nature to lay in the
“lapof spring” —wisdom, ehildof nature we
obey—in goes the blade a little deeper,
profits whittled some tbinuer, hut we con
sole ourselves with thoughts of the “Shorn
lamb,” and disappearing stock. Again you
are still in season for Christmas motives, a
present now, or any other day, will lie just
as welcome as on the 25t h or 31st of Decem
ber for that matter. Lot* of nice Dress and
Business Suits on hand, charming Overcoats,
tasty Smoking Jackets, and the bargains in
Broken Suits, Odd Coats, Vests or Panta
loons, are startling. Furnishings, Faney
