The Cbleaco I'nlTerslly Property-
Cbicaoo, February 6. A lengthy
answer was filtd yesterday by the
University of Chicagi in the suit of
Mrs. Adele Doaplas Viiliams apaintt
the nniversity to gtt popsession of the
property on tbe ground tba', it had
reverted to the Douglai heirs. In
the answer the university denies tbtt
it has alienated the proaerty or broken
tbe contract on which Douslas gave it,
and a'eo makes the new point that the
insurance company can never acquire
a title which will ecable it to use the
property for aught else than the pur
pose for which it was dedira'ed as a
nniversity. It is fuither claimed that
when the property wai p'a'.ted and
sold the abutting property owners
bought on the condition tbat the
nniversity would always be there, and
with the advantages of the University
park, and that any purchaser of mort
gaged property mutt take it with
notice of the rights of such abutting;
property owners.

CURED OF CATARRH
BY DR. J. A. HUNTER'S TREATMENT.'
Letter from Mr. Hargrcaves, of the firm of Morgan & Har
greaves. Dry Goods Merchants, Washington, Fa.
Washington:, Ta., July 14th, 1877.
Dr. J. A. IIunikr, San Francisco Dkar Sir:
I wiU have to introduce myself before going any further. I ,was under
your care in trie fall of 1875 and early part of 1876 for Catarrh, "Fharyn
gitis," you told me, atid catarrh in the car, one of my ears the left one
being very badly affected. Now, it is about aural trouble I wish to ask
you. The ear whirh you doctored has ceased to troulile tne, but the
other the right one though it does not seem to be diseased, collects wax;
which gets hard, or caked, int rusted on the tube leading to the ear. A1
drop of olive oil relieves it for the time, until it appears to dry up, and
then not really pains but annoys me.
The sensation 1 now feel is not so much in the car, but at the end of the
Eustachian tube, just where it enters the throat : for when I sing it cause
a sensation a kind of harshness in the throat merely at that point where
the tube enters the throat, as I understand from the cuts in the papers you
gave me.
J'hi rtauvt Iwrott to you. in f reference to consulting home physicians, h
that you cured mi cf Catarrh when ethers did me no good, and transformed,
me from an invalid to a man of not merely good but Rottusr health. If youj
will write and tell nc what to do, I will send whatever charges you sea
proper to make.
When I was under your care before, you prescribed for my ears, Inha
LATIon, Hoping to hear from you soon, I remain, yours sincerely,
A. V. IIarcreaves.
REPORT AFTER NINE YEARS,
Abilene, Kansas, January 21, 18S6.
Dr. James A. IIunikr, 80 Court St., Memphis, Tenn.:
Dear Sir I am in receipt of your letter of enquiry, (forwarded to me
from Washington, Pa.,) about my condition of health. I left Washington
and quit former business (dry goods), more than two years since. The
close confinement had worn me out. I now have perfect health. The
treatment you gave me for chronic catarrh was effective, and the results
permanent. When you treated we in '77 I considered that you saved my
life, and now, at this time, I am still of the same opinion. I am glad to
hear of your return to America, for if I ever have a return of catarrh V
shall want your skill, as I know of no other physician so able to cope with,
this horrible disease.
If you wish to use nie as a reference do so at any time. I feel so grate
ful to you for what you have done for me that 1 will gladly serve you.
Wk&ing you health and success, 1 am your former patient and hearty
wesVwlshd. y Very truly,
A. W. IIarcreaves.
