TI HE SEQUEL OF LA (GRIPPE.
Admiitting the importance that climate possesses in the treatment of the regulation dis-
eases of the respiratory tract, how much greater must be its necessity and value in combating
the evil effects of the dread disease known as La Grippe.
Since the invasion of the United States and Canada by the Russian monster, but three
years since, thousands upon thousands of the sons and daughters of America have been hurled
1 by it into early graves, and throughout almost the entire North and East there is left
a multitude of people who bear its impress, and before whom the grim monster stands
... in threatening attitude, awaiting only its own sweet will for dissolution. And the
a . number fallen is as nothing compared with the host for whom but a short lease
upon life remains, unless refuge is sought in hygienic alimentation, skillful
medical treatment and, above and beyond all, favorable climatic
. The slight cough, the capricious appetite, the gradual failing of
s, , strength, the elevation in temperature and increase inl pulse, the
Commencing shortness of breath upon extra exertion, the flitting
Sillst pains, the little hectic flush, are but the forerunners of
imipeinding disaster. A severe cold, a slight pleurisy or a
passive pneumonia is all that is necessary to light upl the
smoulderiing embers left fromii the influenza's visit, and the
Stale is told.
