SUGGESTIONS ON LAGRIPPE.
A Ken 1 linety Hints rriim the Medical
Ono of tho leading physicians of the city
who has treated an immense number of
cases of "the popular malady" said yester
day to a reporter: "The present epidemic
of grip has assumed extenslvo proportions
uot only In this vicinity but also In the
south and east. It Is noticeable that most
persons who bad It ono or two years ago are
exempt from attacks this year, although
there are a few execeptions to this rule. In
somo respects the disease is unlike tha pre
vious epidemics, more particularly in tho
fact that they do not stem disposed to de
velopo pneumonia; but the organs of diges
tion suiter most, with accompanying bron
chial coughs which are quite disttesidug but
not dangerous. Most of those attacked are
lake suddenly with Intense headache and
pains radiating to different parts of tho
body. The temperature rises very rapidly
and there is a feellug ot great prostration.
The acute distressing symptoms subside
within 48 hours, leaving the patient very
much exhausted with loss of appetite and
general derangement of digestion. A no
ticoablo feature of the present epidemic, un
like the provlous ones, Is the inability of
most of thu persons attaokod to take quinine
or very much of alcoholic timulunt. Two
years ngo tho profession accepted the treat
ment of quinine nnd stimulant, and felt
that they hud adopted the proper course,
but now it seems that this line of treatment
is not to be borne by tha patient, but that
rollet follows confinement to the bed, a
liquid nnd nutritious diet with small doses
of phennctino or acotaullida. The influence
ot tho disease upon the aotion ot tho heurt
is much if not moro noticeable than in the
previous epidemic, aud everyone should be
cautioned, however light tho attack may
be, from doing physical labor. The mor
tality in the present epidemic seems to be
very much less than heretofore, and from
present indications wo nru not to have no
widespreatl on invasion of it. As the dis
ease, no doubt, depends upon atmospheric
causes, it is dltllcut of course for anyouo to
guard agaiust attack, but personal atten
Hon to hygeine and avoidance of excessive
physical labor and irregular eating will
affect much in wnrding ol? the disease.
It Is wise for anyone showing symptoms
of cold in tha lungs or bead to consider it
of enough importance to give up attention
to busiuess aud consult somo medical au

Interview With (Inn. T. . reels About Its

A FrtKK PltR&u reporter culled upon Gen.

uian-Americau company in Burlington for
many years and In whoso olllco tho com
pany has mudo a most excellent showing,
in fact, by for tho best snowing ot any oi
its ageucios iu the State, to lind out too ex
act situation in regard to Its withdrawal
from the State, of which mention wus mudo
in this paper on r.aturdnv las. It 6eems
that the urticlo in quostion has boon misun
del-stood by somo ot the policy holders m
this city, who thought thoy wero to bo left
without insurance. This is not so, for al
though tho company will withdraw from
the State on account of tho savero losses
sustaiued, the policies will lu perfectly safe
In case of los. as thev will be carried in
Gen. Peck states that there aro many
other companies doing businoss iu Vermont

the country, thero is enough perfectly ro-1
liable tiro insurance capital remaining to do J
all tuo UUsineso mat is required iu mis
State, and thero Is no usj In trying to

The policy-holders of tho Gorman-American
need give themselves no uuoa-iness
whatever iu regard to the withdrawal of
this company, for their interests iu the
future as in the past will be thoroughly pro
tected nt Gen. Peck's ugeucy.
