CONCERNING TIIK EARS.
COMMON PRACTICES WHICH ARE
SURE TO INJURE THEM.
A Partial Description of tlm Organ Ian
Cera from Picking the Kan Frorite
Rciiuttdira Forblddt-n Those Wlio Umlr
stanrt Should He CniiHiiltfil.
Tlie ears are ofum tuihjoct to disease, es
pe;ially in esrly life, that people should
know more of 'hem than they now generally
do. A little", but not much, can lie said about
the care tliey need. Tlie real apparatus of
hearing Is fortunately so well const rue ted
and so well protected in its situation, it doe
very well, an a rule, under the "let alone
treatment." 1 here is much, however, to lie
said about what ought not to e done to the
ears, for habit which tend to injure t demure
eiceedingly common. Again, people should
be better informed about the diseases of these
Important org ins, not only for the reason
that many of them may be preventd, but
because, as a general thing, they are improp
erly treated. Considering these facta, it is
assumed that a discussion of Hie subject will
be of interest.
Anatomists bave divided the oar Into three
parts. A descr: ption of two is comparatively
easy, but of th other la too dittlcult to under
take. The dn m of the ear is the dividing
lino between the external and the so called
middle ear. The drum lira alwut an inch and
a quarter within the jiassap. Beyond the
drum is the actual hearing apparatus. The
outermost part of the external ear is, asevory
one of course knows, trumpet shaped, so as
to receive and i olloct sounds from all quar
ters. The middle ear, lying tmck of the drum,
Ls a small cavity, which communicates with
deep caverns, which are ulso a u-t of the
THE EUSTACHIAN TITDK.
The middle et r also communicates with the
upper jwirt of the throat properly the pluv
rynx by a narrow passage called the Eusta
chian tule. Hence it will be seen that but
for the drum ot the ear there would be one
continuous passage from the outer oar to the
throat. Patien ra who bave siilTured perfora
tum of tbe drum will very readily appreciate
this fact, for in blowing the nose the air
escapes through the ear with a whistling
sound. The Eustachian tube plays several
important parts. Were it not for that the
drum, owing to tho absence of air on one side,
would not vibrato, and the hearing power,
whilo not necearily wholly destroyed, would
bo very much impaired. This general idea
of tbe ear is ahcut the best one can acquire
without considerable study and the aid of
charts. At any rate it is quite sufflciont for
the purpose of tuis discussion.
Although tlie drum of the ear lies on inch
and a quarter w ithin the passage, it is very
often injured, aid, iu fact, destroyed by the
wautou careless ujss in picking the ears. An
instrument quit s often used for that purpose
is the hairpin. Never put anything into
your ears but your elbow, is sound advice,
and if universt Uy followed there would be
decidedly fewer cases of deafness. In picking
the ears, possibl injury to the drum is by no
means the only danger to be apprehended.
The lining of tl e ear passage is quite sensi
tive to irritatior . It requires but very little
rubbing or scratching to inflame it, and even
If that irritatior be limited to the outermost
part of the pas age, as it is where only the
finger is used, tb ere is a decided tendency for
the trouble caused to extend up to and in
volve the drum. Many people must have
noticed that af r even gently picking the
ear there soon was felt an uncomfortable
sense of fullness deep within, giving evidence
of an extension of the irritation. Picking
the ear, even if limited to tbe outer part of
it, also gives ri to small aWesses, which
many can testify are exceedingly painful
and slow to disappear.
There is uatundly always a small amount
of wax in the enrs. People generally think
that they should remove that from time to
time, and for tht' purpose a variety of ear
spoons have beer constructed. It is true that
there are occasional cases where tbe wax ac
cumulates to sued an extent it threatens to
fill up the passage. But that condition of
things is scar eel ever noted iu a healthy ear.
Nature has made such provisions that the
wax is properly disposed of if it is not med
dled with. The glands which secrete it are
on the upper wall of the passage, which has
just sufficient "p tch" to lot it roll out. If
one knows this ft ct he need not try to aid
nature in removing the wax, for in doing so
he will most probably defeat her plans by
pushing it far within, where the floor of the
canal slopes in the opposite direction. That
done, the wax Is liable to remain there until
picked out or in tome other way removed. It
is generally the t ule that where one is care
ful to keep the ear free of wax, its secretion
is very greatly it creased iu consequence of
tbe irritation set up.
After what hat been said it will be seen
that all interfere ice with tho outer passage
of the ear is fraught with clanger, and even
in using the towel after bathing the face, the
parte about the ear should be touched with
great gentleness. And hero it is well to say
tbat many peopli incautiously make them
selves deaf by using a towel or handkerchief,
rolled in tbe shapi of a wedge, to wipe out tbe
ear. An occasional itching of the ear is al
most always overcome by rubbing near the
passage Just in frmt of the ear. Where the
itching is quite ct instant, a diseased condition
of the lining of i be passage will be found,
and to effect a cn-e the services of a physician
will be needed. The itching may be tempo
rarily relieved trith warm, weak saleratus
water, dropped h to tbe passage.
It is a common practice in such cases and
many others to d -op into the ear sweet oil or
glycerine. Their use can scarcely ever be
justified, and cer alnly in some conditions of
the ear it is absolutely forbidden as harmful.
Not only is itching when severe an evidence
of trouble within the ear, but all such sensa
tions, as of f ulluets, of burning or of pain, also
indicate tbat there is some disease goiag on
therein, and, of ciurae, a physician should be
consulted. For t iewe symptoms and for some
others the tyringo is frequently brought into
service. Very generally that instrument is a
small glass affair which is well nigh valueless
for the purpose to which it is put To syringe
out the ears is a very nice operation, and one
can scarcely do i". properly without being in
structed by a phj sician.
Where there is any deposit iu tlie ear, as of
hardened wax, et:., a considerable quantity
of water must be throwu into it in order to
do any good. Again, the stream must be
properly directed or more harm than good
will result; instetd of being dislodged and
washed out, tbe c (Tending substance to be re
moved will be dr.ven farther in and become
packed against tbe drum. Then there are
other things to be considered iu this connec
tion. In using a isy ringe, if a stream of water
is thrown against the drum with too great
force, injury is f ure to result. In that way
it is possible to rt pture the drum, but if that
is not done in fiat imation will very likely be
tbe consequence. Again, water too hot or
too cold may set t p an inflammation. There
fore, all things coasidered, the rule is fixed
that syringing the ear should never be done
unless a physician has advised it and given
ample instructions as to all its details. Bos

IT REMOVED THE PIMPLES.
Round Mountain, Tex., March 29,
1887. A lady friend of mine has for
several years been troubled with bumps
and pimples on ber face and neck, for
which she used various cosmetics in or

prove her complexion; but those local
applications were only temporary and
left ber skin in a worse condition. "
I recommended an internal prepara

which I have been using and selling
about two years; she used three bottles
and nearly all pimples have disappeared,
her skin is soft and smooth, and her gen
eral health much improved. She ex
