In all cases of Catarrh and other diseases of the Respiratory Organs, where the system suf fers from the deleterious effects of scrofula or other vitiated condition of the blood local treatment is invariably conjoined with consti tutional remedies. Persons desiring treatment by this system of practice can use the remedies at home as well as at onr office, and which will cause no incon venience or hindrance to business whatever. I have seen so msny of these cases cured that I do not consider any case hopeless, un less the disease has advanced o the chest and both lungs are seriously involved.
