From the Bveninu (Daily) Record, Adrian, Mich,,

"MEDICAL COMMON SENSE.'
In a recent number of the Record we an
swered, in a sportive manner, a few of tho
questions which we found addressed to suf-.
ferers in a brief but comprehensive treatise
on catarrh, bronchitis, asthma and con
sumption, and the rational, we may say per-
naps tne only, principles upon which de
pend a cure. It was our tmrnost) to refer
at a convenient future time to tbis valuable
work, ita author, and his method of dealing
with diseases which have destroyed men's
ives, and inflicted more misery, death, and
mourning tjpon the human race than all
other diseases combined. We refer to con
sumption and its less noted, but scarcely
less deadly, ancestors, catarrh and catarrh
al bronchitis. Beginning with catarrh, we
nave a notoriously bad tenant in tho phys
ical tabernacle, a tenant who pays no rent,
and will never vacate without a vigorous
and summary process of, ejectment ; a tenant
which, if allowed to remain, leaves to lis
worse offspring, bronohitis, iu lease of the
premises, and consumption, tho final in
heritor and last of a depraved lineage,
mortgages the property of death, who be
comes the speedy and final owner.
I he admirable and strong common senBe
book we have referred to is that Dr. N. B.
Wolfe, of Cincinnati, a physician of large
learning and of twenty-five years' practice
in the treatment and cure of consumption
and ita kindred diseases. His method of
dealing with these complaints ia, to our
mind, the only rational and natural mode '
of reaching the difficulty, that ia, by in
The reasons assigned by Dr. Wolfe in sup-
port of his practice we have given our care
ful study, aiA they must commend them
selves to others as they do to us as making
a complete case in favor of bis process. In
brief, the argument is, that a remedial
agent, introduced to tho organs affected,
through the direct process of inhaling it, is
many timeB more efficacious than when sent
on a long journey around, by way of the
stomach, thence through the blood, and
losing on the road most of tho medical
properties belonging to. it. It will strike
tbe reader that ordinary human "gumption"
ought to suggest as the true one, tho most
direct route to tbe diseased organs, which
is precisely the one traversed by inhalation.
Taking .medicines into the stomach, to be
freighted into the lungs through long and
devious channels, is like taking a circuitous
route to mill with a leaky bag of grain, on
horseback ; you sow abundance of wheat
along the highway and reach tho mill with
a "mighty" small grist. '
But the world moves on, and some, at
least, of the fallacies are passing away, and
we art happy to note that not only the
road to heaven but to health has been great
ly improved. Time was when men journey
ed to paradise over a path strewn with hu
man sacrifices. That time has passed away.
Time was also, when drugs and poisons
were swallowed to cure the respiratory sys
tem of deadly ailments. Thrt period is
passing away, and tbe age of inhalation is
rapidly being enthroned.
The new doctoine perhops wo should
soy 'doctoring" already has many con
verts and its pratice is daily increasing.
This is well. At the same time it brings
into the field a class of experimenters wbo,
while readily grasping tho theory, are as
yet unable to reduce it to correct practice.
Twenty -five years of constant and success
ful practiee have taken tho eminent phys
ican, Dr. Wolfe, of the list of experimenters,
and rendered him a veteran, as it were, !n
a comparatively new field, from an ad
mirably arrangod schedule of printed ques
tions which may bo answered by mail, Dr.
Wolfe though located at Cincinaati, is en
abled to prescribe his inhaling treatment
and send it to all parts of the country by
express, at no greater cost than would be in-'
curred in the employment of a local phys
ician for the same period of time. His
book contains hundreds of testimonials to
the cures ho has affected. The address is
"Dr. N. B. Wolfe, 140 Smith Street, Cin
cinnati, Ohio." . "
A Case of Accidental Drowning.
"We never know who will go next"
It was a Sabbath-school teaehcr who
spoko. "A caso of drowning occurred
at the church last week. A sociable
was in progress, and a wash-boiler con
taining liftoon or twenty gal Ions of water
stood ou the iloor beside the stove, and
'Ono of tho little Sunday-school child
"Not at all; please don't interrupt
mo," said the teacher. "Thono cngnged
in preparing the supper observed a very
largo oyster struggling around In close "
proximity to tho boiler. Suddenly it
tumbled in nnd sank to tbn bottom.
Every effort was put forth to rescue it,
but it was not found ttutil the soup had
beeu placed on tho tables; then ono of
tho guests discovered it flouting around
on a cracker, cold In death.",
Was tho coroner summoned?"
"No. It was too clear a case of ao
cidental drowning. -Cleveland Herald.
Ono Human Life. ;
i. It is told of tho Roman Emperor Au
gustus that he was once at a banquet
given by ono of his chief nobles, when
a slavo waiting on the table dropped
and broko a costly crystal vase, Tho
uncontrollable terror of tho man, and of
his fellow-slaves as well, .seemed so
much greater than tbe occasion required,
that tho Emjwror inquired into tho
cause. And then caruo out. tho fact that
the master, a prototype of Mrs. JStowe's '
Legree, had given a standing order that
any slave who should commit this of-
.fence, even by aaldont, should bo cut
to piece and thrown to tho tithes in the
pond. Tho Emperor rose from the
Ublu, aud having shivered with a t3
