ILLS OF THE FLESH.
NOVEL DEVICES FOR THEIR TREATMENT. Roasting and Freezing the Disease Germs—Bathing in Electric Eight—Music Cure. Like mushrooms, new contrivances and novel devices in medical treatment are springing up every day. The sick and the ailing cannot complain of a lack of fresh things in restorative pro cesses. They can bring no charge of inactivity or inattention against those who devote their time to inventing and arranging new methods of annihilating the ills of the flesh. Those who have tired of the old fashioned systems can take their choice of a dozen modem remedies which are turning up their noses and kicking dust at the ways and customs of the old schools. The con trasts furnished by the new schemes are startling, for some of them are about as far apart as the north and the south poles. The sufferer can roast his disease out or freeze it out; or can have it shaken out of him or rest till it disappears; he can electrocutg his visiting microbes or he can "think"them away; he can he cured by music or by osteopathic ma nipulation, or he may depend on elec tric light baths, nitrogen injected into the pleura, or mud baths —that is if these remedies will do all that is claim ed for them. New things are always scorned and sneered at by conservatives, but new ness alone has never permanently damned anything. From apparently good evidence it would seem that all of the cures referred to, or at least most of them, have proved more or less benefi cial in a number of instances. Some of them are yet so new that there has been no opportunity for them to demonstrate their virtues or lack of them. It is as serted that some of these operations are as old as the hills and are simply ex periencing a renaissance. In a few in stances this is undoubtedly true, but the rejuvenescence has been so long de layed that they are practically brand, splinter new. Recently the most sweeping claims have been made by the American elec trician, Tesla, and by Raoul Pictet, a French scientist, who has come to the I'nitedi States. The electrician, in brief, proposes to destroy ail microbes and bacteria by electrocution. He claims that he has invented a new way of ap plying an electric current of great power to the body in such a manner that it will kill all disease germs with out injuring the patient. It is claimed that currents* to be used will be as great in force as those which ordinarily kill people, but the method of application will be such that the subject will not be given even the least pain. The proposition of the French scient isit is almost equally as startling. He proposes to freeze until they are lifeless all disease germs and microbes. He invented a tiny well in which the pa tient ensconces himself for the freezing process. In one way the freezing cure somewhat resembles the germ electro cution cure just described. The temper ature to which the cure subjects the patient, it seems, would necessarly cause death from freezing the body, but, like the electrician, the Frenchman says he has a method which obviates all injurious effects. For producing the low temperature liquefied air is used, which, it is claimed, does not have the same effect upon the body as frigid air in its normal state. It is asserted by the inventor that his process is not in the experimental stage by any means. He maintains that many cures have al ready been effected in France, and that no evil whatever has resulted from the application of the arctic temperature. In'startling contrast to this last de vice is the hot air cure, which its spon sors claim will conquer all forms of TheumatLsms and a score of other troubles by fairly roasting them out oft the patient's system. The high tem perature is applied directly to those parts of the body which are affected. For this purpose there are machines or rather receptacles into which the parts: to be treated are inserted. These re ceptacles are veritable ovens, and are closed as nearly as possible during the operation.. There is one machine for the trunk or body, another for legs and a third for arms. Where the part pro trudes from the oven a diaphragm at tached to the oven opening is folded about it so that as little heat as pos sible may escape. A temperature of 200 or 300 degrees and sometimes even higher is applied in the treatment. Of course, such a degree is more than enough) to boil water or bake meat and wonder is expressed that patients are not roasted alive. The perspiration of the subject would be made to boil if there were not an arrangement to pre vent it. The parts in the oven are al ways swathed in cotton, which quickly absorbs all moisture of the body. Bathing in electric light is something else that is new. On the South Sid a , at a branch establishment of one of the best know sanitariums in the coun try, this odd treatment is constantly in use. The men and women patients use differently arranged baths, the one for •women being far more elaborate. Th 2 ■women's bath is in a cabinet about ten feet long, seven feet high and three feet broad. The upper part of the cabinet on the interior is arched, lined with mirrors and studded with scores of in candescent electric lights. The bath-r lies down on a strip of plate glass sup ported in a frame, and is rolled into the cabinet much as a coffin is rolled into a hearse. The head is left pro truding from the cabinet, in order that the eyes may not lie subjected to tha fierce light. Below the glass, on which the body reclines, are several dozen more incandescent blubs. These, cf The foods we eat furnish energy for the body just as burning coal makes steam for an engine. The experiments of Prof. Frankland, Ph. D., of Lon don, shows that cod-liver oil yields two and one-half times more energy than starches or sweets. Scott's Emulsion is pure cod-liver oil combined with hypophosphites of lime and soda. It forms fat, gives strength, enriches the blood, invigorates the nerves, and repairs tissues. eoc. and $1.00, all druggists. SCOTT & BOW ME.

Altogether there are over 100 lights in the bath, and when all are turned on the body of the- bather every section, excepting the head, is subjected to a tremendous flood of electee light. It is held that when this powerful light is thrown on the surface of the naked body it -has an enervating influ ence on the el'astieity of the capillaries. So the light is used for the treatment of people with poor circulation and weak hearts. The weakening of the resistance in the walls of the capillaries of course enables the blood to flow more freely and the heart also forces the brood with less difficulty. It is also claimed that the light has a general in vigorating and tonic effect on the sys tem, and further, that it is an excellent substitute for the Turkish bath. Mechanical massage has of late years secured many recruits among prominent business men of sedentary habits. In one of the largest and best known downtown office buildings a well-known physician has an institution most elab orately fitted with all kinds of machin ery necessary for applying massage to all parts of the body. Steam furnishes the power instead of muscle as in hand massage. Rods, or arms, fitted at the end with rubber lined "V" shaped ap pliances are the mediums by which much of the rubbiny is done. When f. h f, power is tu rned on the rubber "Vs" move up and down with any de gree of rapidity desired, the movement being under control of a governor. The patient places his arm. leg or back, or whatever part of his body he wishes massaged, against the flying "V" and he can secure anything he wants, ac cording to the speed of the "V," from a mild rub to almost an electric shock. The foot machine will cure cold feet in thirty seconds. The foot is placed in a vibrating frame that moves with suffi cient speed to start the blood flying through the arteries and capillaries in less time than it takes to tell it. Slow ly revolving balls operated within a de pressed circle give massage to the stomach and lower parts of the body. The mechanical massage, with many of its users, is simply adopted in place of physical exercise. It is claimed the muscles are benefited just as much as by voluntary activity and that the cir culation is equally invigorated as in outdoor exercise. The mechanical massage, it is unnecessary to say, is much used in the treatment of rheumat ic troubles. Quite the opposite of the movement cures is the rest cure, which has at tained more or less popularity with women afflicted with nervous troubles. Frequently society women, worn out with a season of social dissipation, quietly seek a rest cure home in Chi cago and have it announced in the so ciety columns that they have gone foi a trip to New York, Europe or some resort. At the rest cure the patient is allowed no mental or physical txer cisc whatever. She is placed in bed handled as if she were a baby and fee on the simplest diet. As a rule it re quires from two to six weeks to restore the patient to her normal condition. The music cure is one of the newest and strangest remedies. A music cure sanitarium is in full blast in one of the suburbs of Chicago. Every humar body, it is claimed in the music cure has a keynote. This note varies in dif ferent persons, and the note of a pa tient varies from day to day. It is taker for granted that a patient vibrates in harmoniously, otherwise he would no! present himself for treatment at the sanitarium. His note is found in several different ways. One is by having the patienl close his ears and hum his scale. Wher he strikes the note that causes all hi? air cavities, chest, throat and head, tc vibrate and thrill he has found his key, and it is noted on the piano. Anotliei method is to have the patient speak 01 hum into an instrument called the phonautograph, which is almost the re verse of a phonograph. After the note has been found a series of experiments are begun on the patient. He is made: to practice all kinds of exercises to the accompaniment of music in anothei key, and is required to sound other notes with his voice as he breathes Different tones are experimented with until one is found, the use of which appears to benefit the patient. Thence forth all exercises of the patient are conducted in the pitch which has pro*. e<3 beneficial. In addition to music, elec tricity and various colored lights are used in the treatments at this sani tarium. Recently osteopathy has attracted con siderable attention in medical affairs It is asserted by osteopathists thai most disorders are caused by the dis placement of bones, nerves and mus cles. In all ailments brought about by such causes the osteopathic system ol cure is to replace the bone, nerve 01 muscle in its normal position by ma nipulation. The layman might apply f*he term massage to manipulation which would be entirely incorrect. Ir manipulation the individual nerve, bone or muscle is continuously pressed, pushed and rubbefl toward the spot which it should properly occupy by the hand of the operator. The nitrogen cure for consumption has heen so fully exploited within the last few months that it needs no ex planation. The air from the cavity surrounding the diseased lung is ex tracted through a hypodermic needle and nitrogen injected in its place. Thfi experiments now being conducted at a county institution to test the efficacy of the cure are being watched with the greatest interest not only by the medi cal profession but the entire public. For some years mud baths and me dicinal waters have been widely used in treating rheumatism, diseases of the blood, etc. Scarcely a section of the country can now be found In which there is not a spring or a mud bath with a good flock of followers.
