BOLERA MORBUS, CHOLERA

A cleanlinett at preventative of these

gravated, and cramps tot in and tbo votn

and tbe prostrations and coldiicsi doepen
into collapse, which may bo fatal. Whore
In does cholera differ? Sameanswor. In
tbo rico wator discharges or evacuations,
tbo greater tendency to collapio with
Murnost, dyspnea, suppressions of urine
in cholera. Kitontially, tborcfore, only
in rapidity and tovorlty. Tblt It tho
opinion of tbo physlclant of the Dutch
East India Company in 1G29, niid tho same
physicians dcclaro cholera to bo epidemic,
Cbolcm morbus and tho past summer has
convinced many of our ftblost physicians
of the truthfiilnost of this position. En
edomic cholera morbus would bo an ap
propriate namo for tho past tummor chol
era. Amoni; tho nrcdlsnosini; causes of
this cholera Is warm wenthor, damp, low,
lll-vontllated resldoncet, and among tbe
direct causes It Indigestible food, such as
unripo fruit or food In excess of the do
mandi of tho pbytlca! body for a healthy
tupply In warm weather; sudden changos
of tempernturo checking prctp'.rations,
These causes operato by relaxlnc tho
mucous mcmbrano, and exciting tho
llvor, thus loading tbo Intestinal canal
with gastric and Intestinal julcot and bile,
which neodt only unripo fruit or excess
or food to preclpltato peristaltic actions
therefore, vomiting and purging result.
Now tho ejoctn, if carofully examined,
will in most cases bo found to be tour,
thowing undoubtedly that carbonic acid
gat is present. Tho insonsiblo vapor that
is continually passing oir from our bodies
Is loaded with carbonic acid: therefore.
it it probable that cholera, cholora morbut,
otc,, aro but poisoning, moro or le.-j gen
erally, by carbonic acid.
This bilo when excessivo is feobly alka
line, and carbonic acid noutrahzot tblt al
kalinity, and thus liberates tho biliary
acids, and thut aro produced many of tho
And when those conditions aro exces
sivo produco rlco wator discharges of sutll
clently porslstent and tovoro, Thut wo
have diarrhoo, cholora morbus or cholora,
according to tho extent of tho carbonic acid
poisoning. Thoro aro certain localities
and yean whero and when tbo tendency to
this form of disease It very mnrkod. Tbcso
yean aro whon wo have much spring rain,
and tho tummor sotting in warm. This
produces much carbonic acid gas in tho at
motphcro, aud this tends to dobiliiato tbo
pnysieal body, and to only a littlo Irregu
larity in eating and drinking, or sudden
change of temperaturo, Is necessary to
bring on an attack of cholora morbus.
Thlf local condition mav becomo general,
and then wo havo epidemic cholora mot-
bus, (c f. cholera or carbonic acid poison-
"When tbo atmosphere is loaded with
carbonic acid, and taturatod with hot vapor
inanegatlvo oicctric condition, as it tho
case in cholora yean and cholora.locallties,
tho tlightost violation of the laws of health
preclpltato an attack of tbo prevailing dl
tense, Thoso persons whoso habits bavo
already deprived them of vigorous health
will bo among tho first victims of any opl
demic, honco tho great mortality among
tbo intempcrato in all cholera
diseases. The chance which pur
ify tho air, aro defective
whon tho cholora provails. The at-
mosphoric impuritios (in tupcrabundanco
of carbonic acid) act as a ferment upon
organic impurities. Thon organic Impu
ritios aro tho nr.atcriuls out of which chol
ora poison is generated. Honco, tho sus
ceptibility of certain localitiot and tbe
oxomption of othort, according to tho toil
relations, atmospheric conditions, and
habits and cleanliness of the people.
if cholorino cholora morbus, tporadic
opidemic American, African or Asiatic
cholera aro but various doirroea of car
bonic acid poisoning which rosults trom
provontable causos, we can and should
becomo acquainted with thoso causes and
moant of prevention.
The cholera of 1873 Is explainable upon
tbit tuppositlon. Tbe late tprinc rains
increased tho amount of heatery vapor,
me not tumraer bursting suddenly upon
us brought forward rapidly vecotation
and premature fruits and vegetables. In
tbe South tbeto conditions culminatod
about tbe time of tho summer freshets,
and so, altogether, being a favorable time
for cholera morbus to assume a fatal type
anu Dccamo epidemic. The directions of
the prevailing winds and storms bore east
ward, to the east along tbe lines of travel
went this disease and raged in thote town
and cities where Its main element was
most abundant, as in tbe carboniferous
oil of NahhvIUc, Mount Vernon,
etc., but took no foothold in tho
sandy soil of Louisvillo or Cairo, and this
should teach us citizens ol Cairo that un
less by filth wo especially Invito the chol-
era, wo shall never bo troubled with an
epidemic of this disease. About tho tlmo
tho cholora tcaro had subsided, along
comes another tcourgo that it tho thadow
ot ono in Cairo, but a torribloono In tomo
of our southern cities. Yollow fever fre
quently follows cholera, but thoy novcr
prevail together, and therefore cannot bo
dependent upon tho same cuurio. Never
