DU. WOLFE'S COMMON SENSE.
lETTEIi NO. XIV.
AWTMA now IT COMBS ON STMPTOMS VAR
It Is a popular error to regard every dia
caao attended with difficult breathing as
Asthma. Consumptive patients, and those
Buffering faora disease of the heart, also
complain of short breath. Now, although
we novcr havo asthma without short breath,
it is very common to havo short breath
where the disease ia essentially different
from asthma; I wish I could add, less fatal.
By asthma I mean tliai disoase of the
Jungs which manifests itself in spells or
paroxysms of short or difficult breathing,
which mny last a few hours, a few days, or
a month, passing off with frco expectoration,
leaving the lungs as comfortable ns before
the attack. Although this is the usual
course of asthma, it ia not uuiformly so.
The approach of asthma is known by a
feeling of languor, yawning, and oppression
About the stomach, with a senso of tight
ness around the lower part of the chest.
There is headache and dryness of the nos
trils, and violent sneezing, with a senso of
chilliness and weeping eyes.
The attack may conic at any time, but it
usually manifests itself toward evening.
Borne Buffer as soon as they lio down, but
many are wakened out of sleep iu the mid
dle of the night, or toward morning, by
gasping for breath. The chest feels ns
though it were bound with a cord. The
patient springs up in Iwd, and orders the
windowB to be raised, and the doors to be
thrown open. The houso seems "too small
to breathe in .' If the paroxysm is severe,
perspiration tstartg on the forehead ; the ftice
lj haggard, the lips pnlc, the extremities
cold, the heart palpitates violently. It is
no unusual thing for tho asthmatic to rush
to an open wiudow and lean out for hours
in tho coldest weather, insensible to every
influenco and every feeling, except the de
sire for air The distress experienced dur
ing a fit of BHthma can only bo likened to
strangulation protracted through hours,
days, weeks, and sometimes even months,
. Happily for the victims of this disease,
hope and confidence never flag, that nature

wia soon como 10 nieir renor. Alter a
while the tight feeling of the chest relaxes,
the breathing becomes more easy, the pa
tient speaks, coughs and expectorates free
ly. The anxiety of the lace disappears, the
Hps lose their lividity, and, exhausted by
violent efforts to get breath, the poor suffer
er falls asleep.
The cause of all this distress, and the
reason why asthma comes on so suddenly
and passes off so mysteriously, are very
simple. The air-cells unconciou6ly con
tract and expand. Any thing which irri
tates the nerves that act upon these air-cells
may cause a spasmodic contraction to take
place on the instant, and when it does the
cells close and shut out air from tho blood,
The distress is caused not by the spasm but
for the want of air which it occasions. Any
obstruction in tho windpipo sufficiently
great to limit in the saino degree the quan
tity of air drawn into the lungs, would pro
duce the same distrcs. Tho spasmodic con
traction occurs, like cramp, instantaneous
ly, and, like cramp, may continuo far sov
eral hours, and then pass off in an instant.
From this you will understand that what
ever irritates the nerves of tho lungs may
cause asthma, and whatever soothes that
irritation relaxes the spusm, and relieves
the patient. However theorists may con
tend for the hereditary character of con-
lumptiou, all must admit tho purely local
character of asthma.
As my object is chiefly to illustrate the
, euccesslul treatment of asthma, I shall giv
A brief notice of tho various forms of this
disease, reserving for a futuro timo a more
Ample history of its physiological phenom
Nervious Asthma comes on suddenly,
and passes off with very slight and often no
expectoration. It occurs in persons, who.
ere said to be nervious most common with
females and at all ages. I 'may be pro
duced by anything whinj, quickens the cir
culation, as the recent of good or bad news,
fear, etc. Inlijrjg ipecacuanha powder
will excite ity' Many persons will begin to
wuecze ttift moment a jar of this medicine
is opene(j in of prcsonce. I know two
mo$ical mon who are wholly unable to
.&ndlo this drug. It is sometimes produc
ed by tho odor of strong cheese; and hus
even been known to arise from so ridiculous
A cause as the prescuco of a cat in tho room
Laesnec notices two singular examples
which occurred under his own observation
One was invariably soized with asthma on
attempting to travel in a certain direction,
And immediately relieved on turning back
Tho other was sure to bo seized with asth
ma if Lis lamp went out during the night
; Although ho was asleep at the time.
i Hay Asthma Hay Fever Rose Cold.
Those different names are applied to a kin
of Asthma very common during tho Sura
mor months. It occurs as a common cold
. or catarrh in the bead, and rapidly develops
into Asthma. First, we have irriution of
tho nose, eyes, and the whole of tho air
; passages, Attcndod by itching or burning in
the parts. An Acrid wator runs from tho
aoso, attendod by much snoozing. These
' symptoms Are followed by a prickly seusa
Hon la the throat, more or less cough, short
breath, And wheezing in the chest. The
' disesM begun as catarrh in tho nose, reach
' ' . " .' :"'
es tho lungs and tho oppression And want
of broath which it occasions Are so great as
to deservo tho name of Asthma. Hay Asth
ma is most common during the months of
June and July, and is caused by inhaling
the pollen of some kinds of flowers or grass
which Bre in maturity at this season of tho
year. It is often producod long after the
hay season is over, by simply going into a
barn where hay is stored, or by having buy
brought to r stable near tho house. The
odor acts as an irritant to tho olfactory
Hay Astuma is caused by any irritation
of the pucuino-nasal nerves, which havo
their origin in the sub-mucous mcmbrune
lining tho interior of tho nose, and their
distributing .termini in tho tissues of the
air-cells forming tho upper lobes of the
lungs. I havo never seen a case of hay
asthma unaccompanied by nasal catarrh.
Catarrh without asthma is common, but
hay asthma, rose cold or hay fever without
catarrh has no existence in my olwcrvation;
and I make this statement after having
made the subject of asthma a study for
thirty years, and after having examined
and treated not less than tlvo thousand
Dry Asthma is the most common form
of this disooso, tho most serious in its in
roads on the health, and tho most difficult
to euro. It begins as follows: A person,
to all appoaranco in porloct Health, per
ceives thal'his breath grows short on exer
tion, and that alter meals ho raises, with a
good deal of "rasping" a small quantity of
pearl-gray or blush-colored mucus. This
continues for a while, when the quantity
expectorated gradually becomes increased
and attended by more frequent efforts to
"clear the throat," and by a greater senso of
oppression in the chest. In some the ex
pectoration is very slight, but still rasping
and clearing the throat are always present
in some degree. This condition of things
may go on for years, but generally from
taking fresh colds spasmodic contraction of
th,u cells takes place, and asthma becomes
habitual. There is no greater mistake
than to supposo asthma a simple disease.
If it be not arrested by treatment, it will
soon disorganize tho lungs and render lifo

Gen. Butler's Vow.
Gen. Benjamin V. Butler has declined
to act for tiuitciiu, notwithstanding the
urgent nptienl of his lvlntives. It is not
generally known that (ion. Hutlcr sorto
years ugo made a vow never to enter a
criminal court again as counsel for a
prisoner under criminal indictment.
The reason he assigns for such action
carries with it quite a -history.
It Appears that during his second term
in congress one of his henchmen and
A faithful friend who was sheriff tf one
of the counties in his congressional dis
trict, received a telegraphic dispatch
from tho sheriff of an adjoining county,
asking him to arrest a prisoner who had
escaped from his custody and was on
nonnl an incoming train. Un tho arri
val of tho train in question tho culprit
was arrested, and the. sheriff locked aim
up protein, in the railroad depot, from
which lie subsequently" escaped. Pur
sued by the sheriff, tho prisoner halted
at the bank of a creek, produced a pis
tol, and threatened his pursuer with
death should ho advance ono step fur
ther. The courageous sheriff, though
unarmed, did not hesitate in tho dis
charge of his duty, and mot his death
in consequence. Tho man was hunted
down, and in a short timo safely lodged
in jail. Then eanio tho funeral of bis
victim, at which (Sen. Butler, next to
the widow and fatherless, acted aa chief
mourner. ".Soinit six months after
this," says (Jon. Butler, "I was in the
criminal court, when tho prisoner be
foro mentioned was arraigned for trial.
In answer to the presiding judge, he
represented himself as being without
counsel, and requested that 1 should bo
assigned to defend him, which request,
was granted. " I pleaded &Yi WVrts of ox
cses .Jhirf. ivi Vile State of Massachusetts
a similar request from a prisoner on trial
for his life never passes unheeded, and I
was compelled to act as defender of this
very man who had so cruelly deprived
one of my best friends of his life. Once
assigned," said he, "I forgot everything
but my official oath as an attorney, and
succeeded so well for my client that in
tho end he was convicted of a minor de
gree of manslaughter, entailing only a
few years' incarceration in jail. Then
came tho hue and cry of my political
enemies. 'This is tho man,' they said,
'who escorts the widow to tho gravo nt
the funeral of his faithful henchman,
weeps crocodile tears, and then defends
tho assassin and assists him in defeating
tho ends of justice.'
"At the next election," said (Jon.
Butler, "I did not even get one vote iu
that district, though heretofore they had
been unanimously cast iu my interest.
Can you then wonder at my registering
a vow never to enter a criminal court
Eowaro of Ilouust Gabmou.
A gentleman had a short drive in tho

cubby a shilling. Tho cabby thanked
him, and prepared to drive oif, but after
lotting tho gentleman go about ten yards
ho suddenly lmilod him with "Hi, sir,
you havo given me a Avereign by mis

back, and was so pleased with tho cab
man's honesty that lie gave him two half
crowns; tho cabby accepted thuru thank
fully and drove off quickly. Our friend

that tho honest cabman had tricked him
