the sick woman became worse The
daughter was alarmed and went to ring

girl appeared Just at that moment and
Inn terrified voice Informed her mistress
that there was a burglar In the base-

from all iarts of tboPUto. A few of them are siren below as reference.
A low remarks In regard to this dlseaso tnay
N parly all liae tho trouble ot some time In the acutcCfunn and call It ft cold. Sometime they
are aware they hardly ire t oter one cold until they haroanotber Tho cold or more properly
spoaklntr the catarrh theu become sub-acute lly neglect this runs Into chronlo form
Bomctlmos It Is located la the uoai sometime tho throat or both. Sooner or later It affect
tho Lars causlntf frequent rlnglinr or roar In- In tbo cars or other noises. Sometime violent
I n tU in alio u causta excruelatluK pain and tbo acutenoss ot hcarlnc 1 lcasened la ft
u renter or less deirf it. Very often too. It extends up through little duct from the nose to
one or tho other and ovwti botbeyes cauilna soveral different form of dUeascs of the eye.
Nearly 1 1 an. familiar with catarrh In tho form of bronchitis.
Catarrh In alllt forma and nearly all Its sUire can bo cured. Hut people ncflect It and so
do physicians. Tbey neither prepare tbemaelves with tho Instruments or knowledge sufflclont
urnecraaary to treat this trouhleeomo dlseaso as ft rule and thu people themselves do not
apprehend the damrer tbey aroln when they oouault a physician and ho tolls them "OtlU
tiothlnir but a cold" aad yet that au-called cold In ft vast number of case 1 the first start of
duafnosrbllndneaaIoasofsinell loa of voice of lArrngltls Ilronchltl and Consumption.
Any or several of thwo may follow and be caused by ft neglected cold llolow are ft few name
which I have permission to use who havo been treated by mo with benellt for Catarrh In some
of Its forms since I bavo bcou located hero i
J.F. UoblnsomCatarrb In throat San Antonio. T U. Johnson Catarrh In throat. Manager
fan Antonio Ijuiit; Kuhn Catarrh of the head Denver Colorado Miss Mary Fraser
UiUrrhot tho throat and ear Nova Scotia; Frank Newton CaUrrb of tbo throat and eyes
San Antonio t Ml l..Louudibury CaUrrb of tbo throat and bead San Antonio.
Hcores moro might be added to I Mr Hat that 1 havo cured slnoo located In this city but I will
only mention one mora as a remarkable Instance of bow much good oan bo done that etas of
Incurable so-called Consumptive. O. W. Tye of Loon Spring had Catarrh for somo year
lu tho head and turtMit finally the luog became affected and he had several beemorrhagc and
hud a cry bad cough became much emaciated and a conQrmed Invalid and was pronounced
by hla phyalclati lu the hut and Incurable stage of consumption. Ho oamo to m for treatment
last winter nearl a year ago. Itooommoncod to gain tlesh and went to work In the spring
aud I saw no moro of hi in until a few days ago when he came In bragging how well be wa
and wcUtud thirty po-iui's mora than bo over did.
A few words now In regard to tho ear may not bo uninteresting to some especially those
whoarosutTcrcrsfromvailod and numerous form of disease. Very few people neod urging
to consult an Aurlst when they havoadlschargoof matter from It espoclally If accompanied
by a foul smell yet somo will and that too strange a It may sound In this day of enltght
ment by advice of physicians but surely It I never done by one who understand disease of
It Is a lamentable fact that somo of tho older physicians (without any special knowledge cn
lb I point) havo a prejudice against the stoppage ol purulent discharge from the ear but this

John Itoosa M.DLUD. I'rurcssorot Diseases of Eye and Ear lu tbe University of New
Vork City; Surgeon of Manhattan Kyeaud lUr Hospital; Consulting Surgeon of llrookJyn Eye
and Kr Hospital etc. and who Is considered tbe very best authority on tho sbbjoct sayi In his
last work i "Tbero Is no pathological experience on record which can sustain tho assertion
that It 1 dangerous to stop a discharge from tho oar. Let anyone acquainted with anatomy
consider this fact that there la perhaps no part of tbe human body which has mora Important
anatomical relations. Tho cavity ot the tympanautn Is covered over bra thin bony plate
which Is In dlroct cutnumnhatltm with the cerebral meninges; the floor Is close to the great
Juglar Usluternal wall Is tho labyrinth wall covered only by very thin membrane and open
Ing into tho brancbciot tho aooustlo nerve while on tho outside wo bavo a thin membrane
about as thick a paper. 1 1 Is easy to soo that a continuous destruction of those parts by eup-
puratluu uuleiM cured. In tbls part would sooner or later (which it always does) lead to erlou
troubles In tho brain and sometimes In the lungs or heart. 1 And a large percentago of the
caae having a "running car" have also a cough and when tho ear 1 cured the cough 1 also
cured S)s)tuttd of being worse.
Then ncro Is another class of cases that sometime consult tho doctor they complain of
ringing or rourlugor other noise In the ear. lie tells them tbey have cold and a doso ef
quinine erliap is glv en thl may be rulioved for a time but sooner or later returns but tbe
sufferer had his tears allayed by recovering partially from the first attack and so doe not feel
auy anxiety this tlmu and tries the old remuay again It falls and no does everitblng else tbey
try uud their frlenda don't sympathise as t&ere is no extern! evidence ot the s altering caused
by thl condition but this atleat causes them to hunt fipan Aurlst who exsmines the ear
and he finds tho car perhaps so far gono that It la Impossible to restore lu full bearing powers
and ho must have great skill Indeod to stop the courae of tbo disease and keen tbe hearing
from being lost euttrvly so far do theso case run before tbe people consult competent skill.
If iwoplo would go to the Aurlst every time anything was tbe matter with their ear and
not wait to consult pbyslclaus and others they would suffer far less and preserve their bearing
much better as noary ail tho diseases of this organ are curable esp ocJally In tho first stages.

firman than the fact that be baa only sufficiently studied this complicated organ sufficiently
to xvconnizo from three to a dozen. It Is in this and the carcTul application of properly selected
roraetllea to the and the different affections of the eye that th superiority and the suoocs ot
th Oculist consist.
Nearly all the diseases of tho eye aro curable even In the severe form if clearly understood
