The Commotion Caused by the
Statement of a Physician.
An unusual article from the Rochester,
N. Y., Denwerat ami Chionicte, was published
in this paper recently, and has been the
subject of much conversation, both in professional
circles and on the street. Apparently
itcitised more commotion in Rochester,
as the following from the same paper shows:
Dr. J. B. Henion, who is well known not
only in Rochester, lmt in nearly even part
of America sent an extended article to ihi
paper a i'.'v days since, which was' duly
pulilished, detailing his remarkable experience
and rescue from what seemed to be
certain death It would be impossible to
enumerate the personal inquiries which
have been tnndent our office as to the validity
of the article, but tney have been so numerous
that further investigation ol the subject
was deemed an editorial necessity.
Willi this end in view a representative of
this paper called 01 Dr. Henion. nt his residence
on St. Paul street, when the following
"That article of yours, Doctor, has
created quite a whirlwind. Are the statements
about the terrible condition you weie
in, and the way you were rescued euch as
you can stWnin?'
"Every one of them, nnd many additional
ones. Tew people ever get so near the
grave as I did and then return, and I am
not surprised thnt the public think it marvelous
It was marvelous."
"How in the world did you, a physician,
come to be brought so low?'1
" By neglecting the first and mot simple
symptoms. I did not think 1 wn sick. It
is true I had frequent headaches; lelt tiled
most ot the time: could eat nothing one
day and was ravenous the next ; felt dull
indeflni'.e pains, and my stouinch was out
of order, but I did not think it meant ninth
in : serious."
"But have these common ailments any
thing to do with the fearful Bright' di-ease.
which took so firm a hold on you?''
"Anything? Why, they are the sure
indication? of the first stages of that dreadful
malady. The fact is, few people know or
realize what ails ihem, nnd I am sorry to
say that too lew physicians do either."
"That is a strange statement, Doctor."
"But it is a true one. The medical profession
have been treating symptoms instead
of diseases for years, and it is high time it
ceased. We doctors have been clipping oil'
the twigs when we should strike at the root.
The symptom I have just mentioned, or
any unusual action or irritation of the water
channels indicate the approach of Blight's
disease even more than a cough announces
the coming of consumption We do not
treat the cough, but try to help the lungs.
We should not waste our time trying to
relieve the headache, stomach, pains 11 bout
the body or other symptoms, but go directly
to the kidneys, the source of most of these
"This, then, is what you meant when you
said that more than one-halt the dentlis
which occur ni'ue from Bright's disease, is it
"Precisely. Thousands of so-called diseases
are torturing people to-day, when in
reality it is Bright's disease in some of its
many forms. It is a Hydra-headed monster,
and the slightest symptom should strike
terror to every one who hns them. I can
look back and recall hundreds of deaths
which physicians declared nt the time were
by" paralysis, apoplexy, heart disease,
pneumonia, malarial fever, and other common
complaints, which I see now were
caused by Bright's disease."
"Ami did all these cases have simple
symptoms at first ?"
"Every one of them, and might have
been cured as T was by the timely use of the
same reined Warner's Safe Kidney and
Liver Cure. I am getting my eyes thoroughly
opened in this matter, and think I
am helping others to see the facts and their
possible danger also. Why, there are no
end of truths bearing on this subject, it
you want to know more about it go and see
Mr. Warner himself. He was sick the same
as I, and ib the healthiest man in Rochester
today. Hn has made a study of this subject,
and can give you more facts than I can.
Go, too, and see Dr. Lattimore, the chemist,
at the University. If you want facts there
are any quantity of them showing the
alarming increase of Bright's disease, its
simple and deceptive symptoms, and thai
there is but one way by which it can be
Fully satisfied of the truth and foice of
the Doctor's words, the reporter bade him
good day, and called on Mr. Warner at his
establishment,on Exchange street. At first
Mr. Warner was inclined to be reticent, but
learning that the information desired was
about the alarming increase of Bright's
disease, his manner changed instantly, and
he spoke very earnestly:
"It is true that Bright s disease linH increased
wonderfully, and we find, by reliable
hiutibtieq, that in the past ten years its
growth has keen 250 per cent. Look at the
prominent men it hns carried off: Everett,
sunnier, Chase, Wilson, Carpenter. Bishop
Haven and others. This is terrible, and
shows a greater growth tlutn that of any
other known complaint. It should be plain
to every one that something must be done
to check this increase or there is no knowing
where it may end."
"Do you think many people are afllicted
with it to-day who do not reulize it, Mr.
" II undreds of thousands. I have a striking
example ol this truth which has just
come to my notice. A prominent professor
in a New Orleans medical college
before his class on the subject of
Bright's disease. He had various fluids
under miscrobcouic analysis, and was allow
wtmt i ib niwiwi'iW
ing the students what the indications of this
terrible malady weie. In order to show the
contrast between healthy and unhealthy
lluids, he had provided a vial, the contents
of which were drawn Iroin his own person.
'And now gentlemen,' he said, 'ns we have
seen the unhealthy indications, I will
show voit how it appears in a state of perfect
health,' and he submitted his own fluid
to the Usual test. A's he watched the results
his countenance suddenly changed
his color and command both left him. and
in a trembling voice said: 'Gentlemen, I
have made a pain till discovery; 1 have
Bright's disease ol the kidneys,' nnd in less
than a year he was dead."
"You believe then that it baa no
ynitoms ol its own and is frequently unknown
even by the person who is atllicled
"It bus no symptoms of its own and very
often none at all. Usually no two people
have the same symptoms, and liequeutly
death is the first symptom. The slightest
indications ol any kidney difficulty should
be enough to strike terror to an one. I
know what I am talking about, tor I have
been through all the stages ol kidney
"You know of Dr. Uenion's case?''
"Ye, I have both read and heaid of it."
"It is very wonderful, in it ni?''
"A very pioniineut ease but no more so
than a great many others that have come
to my notice as having bten cured by the
"You believe then thnt Bright's disease
can be cured?"
"i know it can. I know it fiom the
expedience of hundreds ol pioiiiinenl peisons
who were given up to die by both their physicians
"You speak of your own experience, what
"A feaiful one. I hail felt languid and
unfitted lor business for years Bui I did
not know what uiled me. When, however,
1 found it was kidney dilliculty I
thought then was little hope and so did the
doctors I have since learned that one ot
the physicinne ol this city pointed me out
toa geiitlemttn on the stieet one day saying:
'there roes a man who will be dead wiihin
a year.' I hcliev.s his words would have
pioven true if I hud not fortunately secund
and used the lemedy now known
Snl'e Kidney and Livir Cure."
"And this caused you to niauulactuic il?'
"No it caused me to investigate I went
to the principal cities, saw physicians prescribing
and using it ami I then-lore determined,
as a duly 1 owed humanity nnd the
suffering, to bring it within their reach mid
now it is known in every part of America,
is sold in every ding stoic, and has become
a household necessity."
The reporter left Mr. Warner, much impressed
with the earnestness and sincerity
of his statements and next payj a visit to
Dr S. A. Lattimore nt his residence 011
Prince street. Dr. Lnttiniare. althoitirh
busily engaged upon some matters connected
with the Slate Hoard of Health, of which
he is one of the anahsts, courteously
answered the questions that were propounded
"Did you make a chemical analysis of
the cae of Mr. II. II. Warner some three
" vears ago, Doctor?"
"What did this analysis show you?"
"The presence of albumen ami tube casts
in great abundance."
"And what did the symptoms, indicate?''
"A seiirtus disease ot the kidneys."
"Did on think Mr. Warnercould recover?"
"No, sir. I did not think it Il
was seldom, indeed, that so pronounced a
case had, up to that time, evei been cured"
"Do yon know any thing about the remedy
which curtd him?''
"Yet, I chemically nnaly.ed it, and,
upon critical examination, find it entirely
fiee from any or deleterious sub
We publish the foregoing Mntements in
view ot the commotion which the publicity
ol Dr. Heiiion's article hn and to
meet the protestations which have been
made. The standing of Dr. Henion, Mr.
Warner, and Dr. Lnttimor? in the community
is beyond question, and the statements
they make cannot for a moment be doubled
They conclusively show thai Bright's disease
of the kidneys, is one ot the most deceptive
and dangerous of all diseases, thai
it is exceedingly common, alarmingly increasing,
and that it can be cuied.
