They Say Ten Por Cent, of tho Pooplo Aro Down "Wlth It. The sick" list grows longor with each day nd hundreds of our town peopl arc sulToring moro or loss from that dreaded disoaso known as tho grip. A Herald reporter visited sovoral of tho physicians ol town yostorday with a viow to ascertaining to what extent tho disoaso has Bpread. Most of tho physicians visitod wero found to havo quito a list of casos and nn cstimato that ton por cont. of tho people are victims was considered by them as fair. Two of tho physicians thought tho estimato would go a little hlghor, but all agreed that tho disoaso is not as bad and tho numbor of pooplo afllicted aro not as numerous as thrco years ago. Ono physician visitod thirty-throo patients yesterday. Uo said that in somo of tho casos tho grip Boomed to bo developing into pneumonia. Anothor physician said that tho recklessness oi somo peoplo was aggravating thoir com plaints. Ho condomnod taking swoats bo- cuuso people aro too liable to go out into tho cold Immediately a ft or and oxposo themsolvos to pneumonia. Tho samo physician condemned tho uso of qulnino, whilo another rocomnionded quinine and whiskey In tho strongest terms. In this connection a recent intorvlow with an ominont I'tmadolpma specialist may make interesting roading. Dr. Carl Seller said : "I have found that specifics for its euro aro ten grains of benzoato of soda every hour in acuto casos, a tablespoonful of some heart tonic and absolute rest, Neither of tho two will act, all must bo used togothor. "It may closely resomblo typhoid fever, pneumonia, diphtheria, dyspopsU, spinal monlngltis, Inflammation of tho brain, measles and various skin diseases. None of tbo symptoms yield to the ordinary treat ment for tho afflictions named, but disap pear with tho ueo of my specific. Tho memory is affected. The slightest effort, mental or physical, produces prosplratlon Tho mucous mombrano throughout tho body is relaxed. In many cases there is inflammation of tho optic norvo, causing particularly a narrowness in tho fiold of vision. Dr. T. II. Fenton, who has made a study of that fcaturo, says it is duo to im perfect circulation at the baso of tho brain. Ho has found small doses of hyoscyamine, say ono two-hundredth ot a grain, a remedy. "There is a peculiar inertia, and sul- ferors coraplainihat they do not fool awako until nearly timo to go to retire Pneu monia, so frequently said to bo the cause of do&th, Is not roal inflammation oi tho lungs, but a choking of tho air tubes, duo to tho swolling of tho mucous membrane, Tho diseaso Is not self-limited that is, doos not get well if let alono or erroneously treatod. It closely rosemblos what is com monly called malaria. In its chronic form havo known It to produco Insanity, par alysls and dealh from heart failuro. Such drugs as antlpyrino, antifobrino, phonaco tlno and othor derivatives of coal tar, and particularly quinino, should bo avoided, as they effect tho heart, decrease tho comfort of tho sufferor and prolong tho duration ol tho attack. It Should bo in Every House. J. II. Wilson, 371 Clay St., Sharpsburg, Fa., says bo will not bo without Dr. King's Now Discoyory for Consumption, Cough3 and Colds, that it cured his wife who was threatened with Pneumonia after an at tack of "La Grippe," when various other romedies und Bovoral physicians had dono hor no good, llobert Barber, of Cooks port, Pa., claims Dr. King's New DiS' covery has dono him more good than any thing ho over used for Lung Trouble.
