Immune from pulmonary tuberculosis.
With another cerebral stimulant the
case is slightly different.
Baldness is certainly promoted by
mental application. As a general thlnj
bald persons are intellectual, or, at
least, persons whose minds are over
taxed either by study or by worry, and
It Is a well known fact that Intellectu
al activity is promotive of health i:i
general. It often happens that a pa
tient who had been bedridden or an in
valid for years is cured by becoming
mentally excited over something, some
times in a moment of time. As the
brain and the lungs have largo arte
rial and nervous connections, it mr.y
be true that mental activity such as
produces baldness might also vitalize
and energize the lungs and heart.
We do not pretend that this is a whol
