"DAILY HEBALD. THAT GOLD BRICK. I. 8. Iksrmen Telle How »c Lost llWli The examination of G. B. Simp«on on a, ehuge of obtaining money under false pretenses came up before Justice Anstiu yesterday afternoon. Tbe lirst witness was I. 3. Sherman, who testified that he "put 91700 in a gold brick and he pat in some and we lost it." Simpson had told ehermau that a man nameil ••Monte Pete" had a rold brick worth fl6 000, which they could buy for a small amonut apiece. He proposed tbat they should go in, and they did, and lest This happened in last September, ia Simpson's grocery store, on the corner of Fourth a»d Fort streets, over which Sherman lived. Simpson did not say be had seen the brick, but he knew of "Monte Pete." He said "Monte" was from Mexico, and Sherman objected to swing imo the tcheme at first, because Se uidn't like the idea. It looked strange to him that a man should have such an amount in gold, but Simpson said tbe man was "broke" and did not like lo "show up" in town. They drove down to this end of th* Aliso-street bridge in Simpeon'a delivery wagon, snd arrived there about 8 o'clock ia the eveuing. When they reached ■hero •■ Aioute Pete" was siuiug at the loot of the electric light tower. "Monte Pate" stated that he bad the brick aud had brought it from Mexico. He want ad to get away from this city and didn't like to show himself, so he would sell it for 94000. "Monte Pete" had his coat buttoned up over his neck and a hand kerchief about his neck so that Sherman could not tell what he looked like, but he talked like a Mexican. Tbey talked together for ten minutes, when it was agreed that they should meet again the next night and make a test of tbe brick. Simpson and Sherman then drove back to tbe store and arranged to bore the brick. The witness stated that he could aot tell moro particulaily aoout it, be cause it happened six months ago and it was a parr of his life he didn't take par ticular pains to remember. The next night they met at the store aad drove to tbe bridge as before. "Monte Pete" sat in the same place as before, but stid he had the brick on the other side of the river, so they drove into the bed and across where "Monte" had tbe brick lying wrapped up in the bashes. Sherman put the brick on a newspaper and took a bit and brace which Simpson had brought abd drilled ia three or four places. "Monte" kept watch or guard with a gun in his hand while the boring was done. Just ss Sherman finished thought he beard some one coming, snd told bim to throw tbe brick in Ibe brushes, which he did after pot ting it in a sack. While he was putting it in tbe Dnsbes Simpson gathered tbe drillings, aud wrapping the in in a small piece of paper, gave them to Sherman. They drove back to town, and the next day they went to a jewelery store and had tbe shavings tested. They were re perled to be eighteen or twenty karat told. Sherman, the next day, drew 1700 oat uf the bank and gave it to Simpson, who was to put in $500, and his partner, Mr. Zeigler, $500. The money was iv greenbacks. At night tbey went to the bridge but "Pett" was not there. Simp-on found him on the other side of the bridge, and brought him lo the wagon and paid him the money, and after Sherman bad unwrap ped the brick it was placed in tbe bed of the wagon in a sack. The money was in two packages, aud Sherman saw Simpson give "Pete" both, but "Mon:e" did not count it. They drove back to tbe grocery, where Sherman tapped tbe brick with a hatchet aud it sounded very brassy. He then took it out and cut off a comer, which they tested with scid, and found it nothing but an alloy. It was different from tbe brick he bad examined at first, although! it weighed about tbe same. The top surface was rougher than tbe brick he bored. He was sure there was no gold in it, and they sgreed that Zsigler should tbrowethc brick iv tbe river or bury it. lie went to bed $1700 poorer than he was tbe d»y be fore, aud would sooner lost another like amount than testify in the court. He never saw tbe brick again, nor did he sleep that night. He was shown tbe brick which was used in the Huyett ease, but said it was not tbe same shape. He bad been friendly with Simpson ever since, for he considered tbat Simpson had lost by the transaction. Simpson had failed shottly after, and She. man thought it was due to tbe lots of tbe $1000 There had been a debt of $400 which could not be paid, and had to be taken out in the goods ot the store. This had caused the failure, in Sherman's opinion. J. W. Francis, the next witness, commenced to tell about an offer made by Simpson last Januiry to buy a brick, but objections being made as to the ad missibility of the testimony, argument ooutinned until 5 o'clock, when tbe Court adjourned until this morning.

Iv other wotda, we employ vombiued loc.u and general treatment. what is Medlcaal Inhalation. Before stating briefly what Medici inhalation is, we proposed in as few words as possiole, to state clearly w h it it is uot. Medical inlmlaiion is not a cure-all, a nostrum, or a panacea. It is uot a specific remedy for any disease. It is not a quack medicine, or advertised to cure any or all the ills that flesh i 6 heir to, au l iutended to fill tbe pockets of its proprietors It is no; a talisman, whose possession insures health to its possessor without the intervention of sense or jidgmeu!. Medical Inhalation is none of these things. Medical Inhalation is simply and solely a method of taking medicines by inhaling or breathiDg them into the lungs instenn of swallowing them into the stomach. By In halation, the proper medicines are applied directly to the seat of the disease, lv the nose, throat or lungs: aud it is clear to every reasoning person how peculiarly ap plicable Inhalation is iv the disorders oi the organs named, if you li ive scalded or burned the surface of the body,or wounded auy limb or member, you do not swallow the remedy intended to heal the disor ganized tissue On the contrary, you apply il directly to tbe seat of Ihe wound or in- Jury Why, then, wheu suffering from ca tarib of the uassl paisaces or throat, or af flicted wi h ulceratio of the lungs, should you rely ou medicines taken Into the stomach? Medical Inhalation not only applies the proper healing remedies to the seat of the disease, but it applies the remedy in the gaseous or vaporous farm, in which form, as is well knowu, medicines set most power fully. How much greater, for example. Is the effect of a drachm of chloroform, when inhaled or breathed, than many times the quality when swallowed into the stomach, 'i he same is true of chlorine, of lodine, and of many otber substances. By inhalation the medicine is not poured Into the stomach and thence sent wandering through the system in search of a malady which may be mainly or entirely a local one; but bj this method the proper remedy is applied di rectly to the diseased organ. Who, after studyii g the anotomy of the lungs, can doubt that inflammation and ulceration of the air-tubes and sir-cells, tbe direct appli cation of Ihe healing medicine by inhala tlon to the dlse> sed p-irts, Is the correct aud rational method of treatment? Who, on the other hand, can be so irrational as to believe that the proper and direct way to reach the diseased surfaces of the .-ir passsges in this case, is by the way of the stomach? I'hvsiology teaches us that the membrane, or skin, lining the air-passages of the nose, throat and lungs, Is only a slightly modified form of the same structure as lha- which covers the external surface of tbe body. Why, then, should local treat ment te proper and necessary for inflam mations, congestions and ulcerations of the one and not be equally so in the case of tne other.' Our experience and success in treating diseases of tbe nose, throat and lungs, de : monstrates, beyond all question, that the true scientific treatment of these diseases is tbat treatment which combines the local effects of medical Inhalation with tbecon ' stitutional effects of systematic remedies, given in the usual way by the stomach. One or both methods must be adopted as i the circumstances demand, and such reme • dies must be employed as tho experience and judgmeut of the physician have proved to be proper in each particular case, medical Advocates of Inhalation. Physicians who were educated twenty years ago or more, and who have not kept up with tbe times in the advauce iv medi cal science, have very little idea of the great importance all leading writers now give to Medical Inhalation in tbe treatment of pul monary diseases, lo such au exteut in this true that no patient should intrust his case to auy physician who Is uot well prepared and thoroughly equipped with everything . necessary for tbe siiminlstering of the ; proper remedies by the method of inhala ' lion. 1 The numerous cures effected by Inhala latiou in cases seemingly past all help, and the uniform success attending its use in diseases of the respiratory organs, rendc* It obligatory on every honest physician to at once apply himself to gain a practical knowledge oi the Inhalation, or, ff that is uot possible, be is at least bound to decline to treat such cases. Among the most eminent physicians of the age who are fully awakened to tbe value of Medical Inhalation iv these diseases aro tbe following: The celebrated Dr. Burdon SaunJerson; Dr. La Roche, of Ihe Paris Academy of Medicine: Dr. Frederick Langbaus, of Ber , lin; Drs. Klebs aud Tommasl-Cru'leli; Sir . Archibald Dlcksou.of Edinburgh, Scotland ; . Dr. Eicbler, Dr. Cameron. Dr. liurdon Buck, . Proi. Albert Lehert, the celebrated Dr. Hnghlings Jackson, tbe venerable Dr. Rob i crt Dickinson. Prof. Thlerfelder. Spencer Wells. Dr. Hilton Flsggo, Dr. (i. P. Wood, Drs. Fritsch and Hlttlg. Dr Fotbergill, Dr. Richard Thompson, Dr. R. S Carpenter, Drs. Anstle, Ball, Fuller, Laucereaux, Krauss. Huguenie, Heller, Orth, Corrigan, Fenwick, sud many others. , With scarcely a single exception every medical authority of eminence recognizes the wonderful potency of this new method, and the coming generation of physicians are certain to be thoroughly educated , therein. At present it is only a few physi cians here and there who have made "Dls ' eases of Respiration." a life study th t are j fitted in any way to employ the wonderful ; resources of Medical Inhalation lv the cure j of these diseases. . Tne Curability ol Consumption. 1 For five years the celebrated Dr. I H Rennet waa pathologist to tbe R yal Iv- I firmary of Edinburgh, aud in his great : work on "Consumption" he makes the fol i lowing st lenient "During this period I made upwards of 2000 post-mortem examinations of persons dying from various diseases, and I wss constantly meeting with cases in which I. found cavities in the lungs from cousuuip tlon, which had evidently healed up or cicatrized years before tho death of the subject Nature did not seem to bave been successful in restoring the wasted lung substance, but tbe cavities were dried up. the progress of tbe disease arrested, aud the subject lived for years, with diminished lung power It is true, but otherwise in good health." «5uT"" CONSULTATION t Itl I (I. c. for ouly a few minutes.)
