CHUOSIC LAUYN0ITI3. CI.EUOVMAN 8 SORE
THIloAT. TREATMr.NT, ETC."
Chronic Luyng'tis, tho most common
form of laryngeal diseisj, is a distress
ing malady. It injuries tho voice, and
frequently ends in consumption. The
symptoms are mild in tho beginning and
liable to mislead the patient into tho idea
that there is no danger. Sometimes a little
pain is felt in the Urynx, but more com
monly only a tickling sensation in tho
throat, which excites light coughing, Uu
ally tho breathing is loud and stridulus,
and the voice hoarse, but aUhe disease ad
vances it grows feeble, until scarcely audi
ble. If ulceration of the vocal curds takes
place, the voice is ruined.
These symptoms are only present in tho
severer forms of Chronic Iiryngitin; in the
mHjority of cases only a feeling of obstruc
tion in tho throat is felt, and llio effort to
clear this something away occupies consid
erable time in every convjrsition. Tha ef
fect of Chronic Laryngitis nu the membrano
is to thicken it. Its surfco becomes' hard,
and rough, interfering with tho free action
of tho vocal cords.
Chronic Laryngitis mostly arises from
excessive uso of tho voice. It is common
with clergymen, lawyers and public speak
ers. The vocal cords, by straining and over
use, lose their flexibilityp Thero aremanjr
phases of this disease, from tho Blight hunk
iness with which clergymen Buffer, to the
total loss of voice, accompanied wilh cough,
and expectorations of frothy mucus.
. Tho most intimato connection exists be
tween affections of tho throat and larynx.
Tho reason is easily understood. Every
breath inhaled pnsses over tho intltmed
throat into tho larynx.
Chronic Laryngitis occurs in advanced
stagci of consumption, when pus Is dis
charged from tho lungs, It is a distress
ing complication w'uli consumption, nnd
adds much to the patient's suffering. It
torminiitrs in destruction of tho vocal cords
by ulceration of cartilage. Chronic Liry
lugitis should bo treated as early as possi
ble but tho remedies must not bo 'poured
iuto tliu stomach,
Tha treatment consisti in tho uso of in
lialntioni southing, antrinp;ent, or' altera
tire, as tho enso mny requireand, in tlio
proper employment ot medicated washca.
I now como to speak of Catarrh in the
trachea and bronchial tubes. .

him in person, should first write for his cir
cular of printed questions. By writing
answers to these, any one can send ns true a
statement of his condition as if ho made
his report to the doctor in person. From
this circular statement tbo doctor can ac
