A'ith his new system of medicated inhalations
combined with proper constitutional remedies
or the liver, stomach, blood, etc.
Probably no system of practice ever employed
las been so universally successful as that m
roduced by Dr. Williams for the cure of Catarrh
throat Diseases, Bronchitis, Asthma and Con
CON SUM PTION,
r rom consumers, "to waste away," usually
ipplied to the advanced state of lung disease.
The following are prominent symptoms in
he first stage, and whenever any of them
,'xist a thorough examination should always
jc made, with a view to arrest tlie disease if
shown to exist: There Is usually a sense of
weariness upon a little exercise, a disposition
to remain passive and idle, despondency,
_ften from no apparent cause, a peculiar
sensitiveness to the effect of cold, and a
breathlessnesi upon moving quietly, or de
scending a hill or stairs, a slight' hacking
cough, with or without expectoration, ex
citability upon slight occasions, Hying pains
through the chest or back, or under the
shoulder blades. The symptoms are more
noticeable toward or during the night; slight
fever in the afternoon; cold feet and hands, or
in many cases, blue lividity of the lips and
roots of the finger nails.
Constitutional or tubercular consumption is
a common form of lung disease. The progress
is slow, but if left to itself no less sure. It
usually begins with a dry cough. At first
these tubercules are exceedingly minute, the
patient not at all suspecting their presence.
Gradually they develop into more active
disease, and then follows the train of symptoms
which leave no doubt as to its true character.
Sometimes spitting of blood or slight streaks in
the mucus is the first indication of tubercular
deposit, or it may be a chilly sensation in the
back, followed by more or less heat in the
palms of the hands, or an afternoon flush on
the cheeks. The slow and gradual iuroads of
this form of consumption leave the stomach
and appetite undisturbed for a considerable
time. Finally, however, hectic fever and
night sweats supervene, preceded by a diar
rhoea. Then the loss of flesh and strength
becomes rapid, the chest contracts, the features
sharpen, the eye attains an unusual brilliancy,
and the patient begins to realize that he is in
the last stage of confirmed constitutional con
By the employment of proper inhalations in
the form of medicated vapor (not steam or
spray) we'are able to produce immediate and
direct action upon the diseased surface in the
pharynx and the nasal passages, for air will
rind "its way into the remotest and intricate
cavities, where it is utterly impossible to make
fluid applications. By these means every case
can be cured
Persons desiring treatment by this system of
practice can use the remedies at home as well
as at our office, and which will cause no incon
venience or hindrance from business whatever.
1 have seen bo many of these cases cured that
I do not consider any case hopeless unless both
lungs are seriously involved. Even then the
Compound Oxygen aud other inhalations aid
us in dissolving the mucus and iv contracting
and healing the cavities, which nothing else
can do with the same success.
The very best references from those already
Those who desire to consult with me iv regard
to their cases had better call at the offlce for an

personally can write for a copy of my medical
