Where there is a great deal of standing to be done by
any one, the feet sometimes yield more or less at the arch of the

sometimes follows. Young girls who have to stand much are especially
liable to suffer in this way. In the first place rest must be had.
Wise masters will provide due rest for their employees, foolish ones

be well done without due rest. The proper rest for feet such as we
speak of will be the most easy and comfortable position. Comfort is
the test of the right treatment. Bathe the feet in hot water for a good
while, using plenty of soap. Rub gently with hot olive oil, pressing
any displaced bones into, or near, their place. Carefully avoid giving
pain. Massage similarly with oil the whole limb, and also the back
(see Massage). Do this every day at least once. You may have months
to wait, but a sound limb is worth a good deal of patience. When
