THE CLEARING-HOUSE. How It will Benefit the Various Banks. BALANCES AND EXCHANGES. Possibility of tbe Establishment of Such an Institution in Los Angeles. There is an axiom, "never put off until to morrow what can be done to day," whioh applies to the moneyed institutions ol Los Angeles. There is a need ior the establishment of a clearing house in Ibis city, and according to the above role tbe matter should not be delayed any longer than can be helped. ' Some inquiry has already been made , by the Board of Trade relative to this , matter and it is only necessary to look i into the history of similar institutions ia other cities and to consider the benefits derived therefrom to convince i all interested that a clearing-house it a necessity. Almost every city of any aise and of any pretensions to commer cial activity, aud all cities which are railroad and shipping centers, have long been possessed of like institutions, and i at the present day it is considered an indispensable part of tbe banking busi ness. Los Angeles lias some eight or nine commercial and mercantile banks, end while tbey do not have such a volume of business as similar institu tions in older oitie.-, they certainly have enough to warrant them in supporting a charing house, and the time is com ing when the settlement of their daily balances will be a much more arduous task than it is at present it this system of clearings is not adopted. A HKCKSSITY FOX HANKS. <. Beei.les the necessity to banks of tuch aa ioslitution the record of exchanges aad balances is a sure index of the busi ness situation at dirT<.reut times. At it >( present 09 cne can correctly tell any pariit nl »r l'«j"' or month has been active in commercial matters or the reverse; and if they could get »n idea of the situation there can be found no data from which the particular erase of activity or. inactivity can be baaed. Thu-, when tbe figur sof the Saa Fraucisco ciearing-ioii'4 are it is observed that iv 1886 "there was an increaee i» the clearings in those of the third quarter, which, by re ferring to reports of commercial institu tious, *, found to have been caused by "*3:tiv« grain operations, and in the fourth quarter tha great increase was due to two causes—the grain transactions aud the increased business in stocks. While i: might have been surmised that th .re was an increased business in tbe banks from the causes above-mentioned, such foot could not have been definitely ascer tained without the clearing-house fig ures. The history of the clearing-house in San Fraucisco is one that cau be taken as an example. BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS. The record of business transec'ions between banks is much smaller in San Francisco, wben compared with New- York or Chicago, tban will be those of Los Angeles when compared with Sau Francisco, and with the activity of the real estate market here there will cer tainly be as large a record as there was in San Francisco when the clearing house first started. Previous to 1876 balances between banks were arranged to the inconveni ence of clerks and bankers iv San Fran citco, much as is the case here to-day, bat following the example set by older cities east of Ihe Rockies, a clearing house was established and the record at the close of the year showed thatbil anoes aggregating $104,804,707 74 ha 1 been paid over the couuters to aad that tbe clearings amounted to $478,123,237.97. By following the record down year by year it was dimoa atrated that there was increasing activity in business during 1877 and 1878. Then in 1879 there came a dull year, and 18s0 waa still worse; but in 1881 ad 1882 business picked up, only to fall off again in 1883 and 1884. A slight waa noted in ISS.) and 1886—was some thing over the average. The fact that the increase was uot larger in the last few years was because there was a de crease in the value cf commodities, and therefore tbe clearings were not propor tionate to the increase of the popula tion. The object of a clearing-house, in definite terms, is to effect at oue place the daily exchanges between the several hanks, and lo receive and pay at tbe same place the balauccs resulting from snob exchanges. BULKS ELSKVVHERF. At the clearing-bouse in San Francisco the hours for making snch exchanges are 10 o'clock a. M, and 2 v. M., and at 2:30 the debtor banks pay to man. ager of the clearing-house, in gold coin or clearing-house certificates, the bal and doe from them respectively, result ing from the day's exchanges. At 3 o'clock the creditor banks receive from the manager at the same place tbe bal ance due to them respectively. The clearing-bouse receives gold coin iv sealed sacks containg $5000, $10,000 and $20,000, each bag being tagged aud dated by tbe bank delivering it. Upon its receipt it is weighed by tbe manager end rejected if light, and if reclamation as male it *mn«t be demanded of the bank whose tag has been plaoed on the defective sack. At the present time there are only sixteen banks coimtcted with the clearing-house in San Fran cisco and as there are nearly as many bonks in this city, it seems clear that there is enough business b-tween them te warraat the fbrmation of a clearing house. As has been stated, inquiries relative to clearii-g-hou9es are being made and it is within the pos-ibiltlies that one may be established here in the near future. An Editor in Luck. J. VV. Ferguson, of the Fresno Expoti tor, bas sold bis residence property in that oity for $30,000. When he bought tho property, years ago, it was not worth much, nor was any other property in Fresno. It is through the unceasiDg, persistent and judicious work of suchi newspapers as the Expositor that a oity increases in population aud ber property enhances in value. It is grat fying to know tbat one editor, while striving to snake other people rich, and push a town ahead, has fallen into a small share of Ihe loaves and fishes. Everybody who knows true-hearted and whole-souled Ferguson wishes he bad received a mil lion dollars for his property. Rouster Baisin Vineyard.

OUK TREATMENT OF THE DISEASES ol the iespiramry passtKes consists lv i he employment of Medical Inhalation for its diiect effects on Ihe diseased i rgsnsi aud, at the same time, adopiiug inch hy gienic measures and administering such medicines by the stomach as will most ef fectually tmrlfy the blood, give toue la the nsrvous system, nud bHild up and strengthen Hid general constitution lv other wcrds, we employ yoaipiued loci! and general treatment. What Is Medicaal Inhibition? Betu'.e stating briefly what Medical inhalation* is, we propose, in os lew woids as possible, to state clearly wh?t it Is not. Medical LnhsJatlon Is not a cure-all. s nostrum, or a panacea. It is not a specific remedy for any disease. It is not a quack medic ne, or advertised to cure tiny orjil) the ills tun Ue>ii!s in^;* u to nil the poctets of its proprietors. It is not a talisman, wliose possession insures health to Its possessor without tbe Intervention ol sense or judgmeut. Uedleil Inhalation is none of these things. Medical Inhalation is simply aad solely a method of taking medicines by Inhaling or brea'htiig ilniia Uity ttc luuss instead. Ol swallowing them Into tbe slolrUch. By In halation, the proper medicines are applied I directly to the seat ol tbe disease, lv the nose, throat or lungs: and it is clear to every reasoning person how peculiarly ap plicable Inhaiatiou is la the disorders of the organs named. If you hive scalded or burned the surface of the body,or wounded auy limb or member, you do not swallow the reinedv intended to heal the disor ganized tissue. Ou the contrary, you apply it directly to the seat of the wound Or in jury, wny, theu. when suffering from ca tanhof the nasal paisaecs or throat, or af llicted wiib ulceratlo" of the luugs, should . you rely cv medicines taken Into the stomach. Medical Inhalation not ouly applies tho proper heallug remedies to the seat of ihe r disease, but It applies the remedy lv the gaseous or vaporoussforni, iv which form, as Is well known, medicines act most power fully. How much greater, for example. Is the effect of a drachm of chloroform, when . iuhaled or breathed, thau many times the quantity when swallowed iuto the stomach. , iho same Is true of chlcrlae, ol iodine, aud of many other substances By inhalation the medicine is uot poured into the stomach o and thence scut wandering through the system in search of a malady which may be a mainly or entirely a local oue; but Ly this method the proper remedy is applied di rectly to the diseased orgau. Who, alter studyit g the anot.umy of the luugs. cau doubt that lullsmniation and ulceration of the air-tubes tnid e.ir-cells, the direct appii -0 cation of the healing medicine by inhala tion to the diseased pirts, is the correct aud „ rational method ol treaimeut f Who, on r the other hand, cau be so irratioual as to believe that the proper and direct way to reach the diseased surfaces of Ihe > ir , passages in this Case, is by the way of the stomach? Physiology teaches us that ihe membrane, or skin, lining the nir passages of the nose, throat aud luugs, Is ouly a slightly modified form of the samo structure ' as that, which covers the external surface of the body. Why, theu, should local treat , ment te proper and necessary foriullam- Rations, congestions and ulcerations ol the one and not be equally so In the case of tne • other.' _ , Our experience and success iv treating diseases of the un-e, throat and lungs, de monstrates, beyond all question, that the 1 true scientific treatment of these diseases is that treatment which combines the local effects of medical in halation with thecou stttutlousl effects of systematic remedies, given In the usual way by the stomach. One or both methods must ho adopted as the circumstances demand, aud sucu rerne , dies must be employed as the experience and judgment of the physician have proved » to be proper in each particular case. meaicul Advocates ot lultnlatloii. ' Physicians who were educated twenty i years ago or mere, and who h tvu uot kept up with tbe times in the advaLce In modl . cal science, have very ltttloldeu of the great " import.noe all leading writers now give to Medical Inhalation lv the treatment of pul monary diseases. To such an extent is this " true that no patient should intrust his case to auy physician who is not weil prepared . and thoroughly equipped with everything necessary for the bdmluistering of the proper remedies by tho method of luhala- Tbe numerous cures effected by inhala . latlon in cases seemingly past all help, and the uniform success attending its use iv diseases of the respiratory organs, rciide-s it obligatory on every honest physician tn 1 at once apply himself to gain a prnotlc v knowledge of the Inhalation, or, if Hint is not possible, he is at least bound to decline to treat snch cases. ... Among the most eminent physicians of the age wbi an. fully awakeued to the value of Mcdisal Inhalation in these diseases are the following: The celahrsted Dr. Burton faiunJerson, Dr. La Koehe. of the Paris Academy of Medicine: Dr. Frederick Lsofhsus, of Ber lin; Drs. K'.ebt and Tommnsl-Cru'lcli; Sir Archibald Dickson,of Edinburgh, Scotland ; 1 Dr. Klchlsr, Dr. Cameron. Dr. Gurdou Buck, Prol.

With scarcely a single exception every medical authority of eminence recognizes . the wonderful potency of this uew method, and the coming generation of physicians . are certaiu to be tboreiiglilr educated therein. At pretsat it Is only a few physi L clans hers and there who hare made "Dis eases ef Respiration" a life study arc • fitted In any way to employ the wonderlul resources sf Medical inhalation in the cure - of these diseas.es- Tbe Curability or Consumption. 1 For five years the celebrated Dr. I. 11. Rennet wna pathologist to the X yal Iv ; firmsry oi Edinburgh, and in his great work on "Consumption" he makes the fol lowing statement: "During this period I made upwards of , 2000 post-mortem examinations of persons • dying from various diseases, anil I was constantly meeting with cases lv which I found cavities In the lungs from consump tlon, which had evidently healed up or cicatrised years before the death of tbo subject. Natuie did not seem to bave been , successful ln restoring the wasted lung . substance, but the cavities were dried up, the progress of the disease arrested, and the subject lived for years, with diminished lung power It it true, but otheiwlse in good hoalth." fMT* CONSULTATION HH I (I.e. for only a few minutes.)
