Excerpt from The Secret of Success in Life, or Common Sense in Business and the Home: A Compendium of Practical Information
In the preparation of Part II. The author does not claim originality, for originality would be a fault; but he does claim to have expended time, pains a... nd money to obtain for his readers the most valuable secrets in domestic economy, and how well he has succeeded, they are referred to the chapters on the Art of Marketing; of Planning and Furnishing Houses; Practical Suggestions on Clothing; the Secrets of the Toilet, and the Best Methods of Prolonging Life. The chapter on preparing Dainty Dishes contains original contri butions from professional cooks who receive larger salaries than the Secretary of State; and those on preventing and curing diseases were read in proof and indorsed by some of the most eminent physicians in the country. Every chapter, in fact, contains advice for every-day use, based on scientific and practical experiments, that is worth more to any man of family or thrifty housekeeper than the cost of the entire work.
With this explanation the Publishers commend this volume to the patronage of all who aspire to that true wisdom, which consists in knowing what is best worth knowing.
