CATARRH TN MB LARYNX SYMPTOM! OF
LARYNGITIS WAHntNOTON DTKD OF TUB
DI8KASB TIIE ACUTE TYPE RARELY CUR
ED CLERGYMEN sORE THROAT.
Aa tho nsBul pasasgei open directly into
the throat, the membrane which linos it
soon becomes inflamed. A sensation of
heat and fullness la usually experienced in
that part adjoining the nasal outlets, from
which an annoying and offonaire discharge
of matter drops into the fauces, requiring
frequent hawking efforts to remove.
Tho membrane lining the fauces in health
is of a rmle roHo color, and is moistened
with a bland transparent secretion which
oozes from the tiny mouths of thu follicles'
cropped over its surface. When catarrhal
secretions drip from the back chambera of
the none into tho throat, tho membrane be
comes irritated, and erelong the whole f au
cnl atructuro becomes inflamed and catarrh
formidably seated in a new throne of power,
from which it hurls, its force upon the cita
del of life. ThinffittaAlon does not con
flue itself to the upper part of the throat;
but invades the deep fnucal cavity, seen
when tho moutb is open, and the tongue dO'
presped. Hero It gives riso to a feeling of
soreness, heat and a constant desire to
swallow, with moreor.less liability to cough
especially when visiting assemblies wbere
tho air is impure. The membrane is now
of a dark-red color, somewhat swollen, and
granulations are diatributed over the aott
palate and pharynx in clustera, giving
it a atreaked appearance. The voice losea
its musical quality and power. In this
condition of tho throat there is a tendency
to take cold from tho most trivial cause.
Catarrh is now advancing upon tU8"Larynx,"
to which point we must follow it and faith
fully record its action upon that organ.
The Larynx is the head of the windpipe,
and the last fortress which Catarrh has to
storm and carry before it enters the trachea
and bronchial tubes. It has now become a
formidable disease, and no time must be
lost in divesting it of tho power it has ac
quired. The larynx is situated behind and
at the base of the tongue. Io shape it la
like tn inverted cone, and is composed of
four cartilagee. held firmly together by lig
aments and muscles. It varies in length
from one to two inches, beginning at the
base of the tongue and. extending to the
neck (Puraum Adami), known as - Adam's
apple.'and has two openings; tho upper
one is called the Glottis. This aperture is
covered by a valvo callod the ."Epiglottis,"
which serves to guard the entrance to the
lungB, and on the aporoach of food or drink
to guide them into theetomach. It is a
wise arrangement, for if the least particle of
food or drink gets into the windpipe, com
monly called "the wrong throat," there is
great distress and continuous coughing until
offending matter is expelled.
About halt-way down tho larynx is the
aooond opening or slit, in which vocal cords
are located. This arrangement is to produce
and vary sound, through which the in
dwelling Bpirit makes known its varied
When Catarrh suddenly assails the larynx
tho struggle is short, frequently terminating
fatally in a few hours. Washington sur
rendered his life to an attack of acute
laryngitist. The symptoms of this form
of disease aro easily distinguished; the
victim complains of sore throat, preceded
by a well-defined chill, accompanied with
Aa indescribable restlessness atd anxiety
of countenance. Breathing becomes labor
ed, and stertorous, and swallowing almost
impossible. The voice at first is husky,
growing gradually more indistinct, till it
settles into an inarticulate whimper. Tho
horrors of strangula'Jon thon begin ; breath
ing becomes more difficult , tho face assumes
a livid hue; the eyes wildly stare; a terri
ble sense of suffocation comes on; the
throat is grasped convulsively, as if to tear
the obstruction from it; motion is made for
air fresh air but, alas I alas! death damps
bead the brow, tho eyes, close, and the
struggle for life is over.
Disease like this makes us deplore the
impotenco of onr art, for rarely, indeed,
can any treatment be employed before tho
A mildor form of Laryngitis, however, is
known as Clergyman's Sore Throat. This
is quite amenable to successful treatment,
and will be the tubject of my next letter.

In referring to Dr. Wolfe, and his mode
of treatment, the Evening Ilucord, of
Adrian, Mich., says: lie is a physician of
large learning and twenty-live years of suc
cessful practice in Cincinnati, in the treat
ment of consumption, asthma, Bronchitis,
loss of voice, bleeding from the lungs, and
kindred diseases of the respiratory organs.
Though he has been continuously located in
Cincinnati, O:, etwee 18&7, be bee (rtvjverilwei
for, and cured thousands of sick people
living in all parts of tho United States and
Canada, many of whom had previously
been given up by friends and physicians as
incurable. Those who live at a distance
and wish to consult him, but can not visit
him in person, should first write for his cir
cular of printod questions. By writing
answers to these, any one can send aa true a
statement of his condition aa if he made
his report to the doctor in person. From
this circular statcmont the doctor can ac
curately diagnose the disease end prepare
inhaling remedies for ita removal. This
with the inhaler ho tends quickly by ex
press, with instructions for uaing them, to all
parts of the United States and Canada. His

The Second Girl's Terma.

In mnny places in England a bell is
rung after dark. The origin in usually
curious inoiign generally nna wrongly
.put down to the curfew. At Storrinir-
ton, a village in Sussex, the bell ring? at
eight in the evening. This is in virtue
of an ifiidowuicnt; a man lost his way
on the Downs in a sea fog, and only
found his home by houring tho boll of
Storrington church. In gratitude, he
endowed tho church with a sum of mon
ey, on condition that tho bell should bo
rung at eight o'clock every night. A
similar account is givon of tho bell of
Great St. Mary's, Cambridge, which
rings at nine in tho evening, having
been endowed, by a Saxon princess, who
was saved from perishing in the fens
by hearing a Cambride boll. "Great
Tom," of Christ Church, Oxford, is toll
ed one hundred and three times every
night; the origin is probably tho same
as that of the others, but . tho "scout"
only knows that the "buttery" is then
opened. At Homo a boll rings at "one
hour of the night" for tho Da Profundi,
and at "two hours" the evening before
a fast. This "one hour of night'1 means
oue hour after the Avo or Angelus; and
not, as a clever tourist once described in
hie diary, one o'clock in tho morning.
