A Brief Description of the Diseases of the Eye. Ear and Throat, With
a jciv References of Remarkable Cures, By Dr.
N. S, Butnham.
Ban Antonlolong felt tho need ot a skillful specialist In treating dlscascof thel Eye, Ear and
Throat. Tho Inhabltantsof all this Iramcnso BUtc, whon requiring tho services of suoh skill
wero compelled to make long Journeys to distant cltlca at great expense, such as Kansas City,
Bt. Louis and Chicago, and still further East, In order to obtain relief for diseases atBloUng
theso organs and parts,
Many of tbo cltlxens ot this Statu who went to Kansas City (for tho benont of an oculists
skill, mado the acquaintance of the Oculist, Aurlst and Larynglst.
TDr. 3ST. S. B-u.rntLO.ixi,
who had chargo nt tho Kansas Clty.'.Mo., Eye, Ear and Throat llndrmsry. They, one and all
united In urging him to como to this point In Toxas. finally falling health, caused by th.
cold climate, compelled a change and so San Antonlogalned a specialist who was known by
somo of her own citizens, and many In tho Blato, to possess tho requisite skill In all of It
dellcatcnd varied operations and treatment, and since locating here tho greatest success has
crowned his efforts snd ho has won tho enduring gratitude of hundreds whom he has treated
from all parts of Iho State. A few of them aro given below as reference.
A lew remarks In regard to thlsdlseasomay not booutof place here, as It Is so common
Nearly all havo tho trouble, at some time In the acuteCform and call It a cold. Bometlmss they
are awaro they hanlly get over ono cold until they havcanother. Tbe cold, or more properly
speaking, tho catarrh, then becomo sub-acute, lly neglect ibis runs Into a chronlo form.
Bomctlmnsltlslocntellnthonoso;somcttmestholhront,orboth, Sooner or later, It affects
tho tars, causing frequent ringing or roaring In Iho ear, or other noises. Sometimes violent
Inllitmatlon, causing oxcruclatlng p.iln, and tho acutcness ot hearing Is lessened In a
greater or less drgrtc Very often, too. It extends up through a little duct from lbs nose to
onaortho other and oven both eyes, causing soveml different form of diseases of the eye.
Nearly all aro familiar with entarrh In tho form of bronchitis.
Catarrh In all Its forms and noarly all Its stacs can be ourod. Hut peoplo neglect It, and so
do I'hjslclans. They neither prepare themselves with tho Instruments or knowledge sufficient
or necessary to treat this trnublesomo disease, as a rule, and thus people themselves do not
apprehend tho danger they aro In when they consult a phislclan and be tell Ibom, "01 Its
nothing but a cold," and yet that so-called cold In a vast number of coses Is the first start ot
deafness, blindness, loss of smell loss of voloi, of laryngitis, llronchltls aod Consumption,
Any or several of theso may follow and be causod by a neglected cold. Below area few names
which I havo pormlsslonHo use, who havo bocn treated by mo with benefit for Catarrh In some
of Its forms since 1 bnvtbcen loentcd hero 1
J. K. ltoblnson, Catarrh in throat, Ban Antonio; T. II. Johnson, Catarrh In throat. Manager

Catarrh of tho throat and cars. Nova Scotia; Frank Newton, Catarrh ot tho throat and eyes,

Scores moro might bo added to this list that I bavo cured slnco locates! In this city, but I will
only mention ono more as a remarkable Instance ot how much good can be done that class of
Incurable, so-oallod, Consumptives. O, W. Tyc, of I,eon Springs, had Catarrh for some years
In tho head and throat, finally tbo lungs became affected and bo had soveral haemorrhages and
had a very bad cough, bcciirno much emaciated and a conllrmcd Invalid, and was pronounced
by his physician In tho last and Ineurablo stago ot consumption. Ho camo to mo for treatment
lost wlntor, nearly a year ago. Hooommoncod to gain tlesh and went to work In tho spring,
and I saw no moro of blm until a few days ago, when ho camo In bragging how well ho wa
and weighed thirty pounds moro than ho over did.
Til
A few words now In regard to the ear may
who aro sufferers from varied and numerous forms of dlsoaso. Very few people need urging
to consult an Aurlst when they havo a dlschargo of matter from It, especially If accompanied
by a foul smell, yet somo will, and that too, strango as It may sound In this dsy of onllght
ment, by advlco of physicians, but surely It Is novcr dono by one who understands diseases of
this organ.
It Is a lamontablo tact that somo ot tho older
this point) havo a prcjudlco against tho stoppago ol purulent discharges from the ear, but thl
Is based upon tho erroneous teachings of old French writers, Du Vorney and Hard. D. B. fit-
John lloosa, M. I)., LL. I)., Professor of Diseases
York City; Surgeon of Manhattan Eyo and Ear Hospital; Consulting Surgeon of Brooklyn Eye
and Ear Hospital, etc., and who Is considered tho very best authority on tbe subject, says In his
last work: "Thero Is no pathological experience on record which can sustain tho assertion
that It is dangorous to stop a dlschargo from the oar." Let anyono acquainted with anatomy,
consider this fact that thero Is, perhaps, nopart of tha human body which has more Important
anatomical relations. Tho cavity ot tho tympanaum Is covered over by a thin bony plate.
which Is in direct communication with tho cerebral meninges; tho iloor Is closo to tho great
Juglar, Its Internal wall Is tho labyrinth wall, covered only by very thin membrane, and open
ing Into tho branches of tho acoustic norvo, whllo on tho outside wo havo a thin membrane
about as thick as paper. It Is easy to sea that a continuous destruction ot those 'parts by sup
puration, unless cured. In this part would soonoror later, (which it always docs), lead to serious
troubles In tho brain, and semetlmes In tho lungs or heart. I And a large percentage of the
cases having a "running car" have also a cough,
cured, lastcad ot being worse.
Then Aero is anothor cla ss of cases that
rloglng or roaring or other noises in tho car.
quinine perhaps is given, this may be rolleved for a tlmo, but sooner or later returns, but the
sufferer had his f curs allay ol by recovering partially from tho first attack, and so does not feel
any anxiety this tlmo and tries the old romody again, It falls and so does everything else tbey
try, and their friends don't sympathlzo as there Is no external ovldcnco ot the suffering caused
by this condition, but this, at least, causes them to hunt up an Aurlst, who examines the ear
and bo finds tho car, perhaps, so far gono that It Is lmposslbl, to restore Its full hearing powers
and ho must bavo great skill Indeed to stop tha course of the disease and koeo tho hearing
from being lost entirely, so far do these cases run beforo tho po oplo consult competent skill.
If peoplo would go to tho Aurlst ovory tlmo
not wait to consult physicians and others, thoy would suffer far less and preserve their hearing;
much better, as neary all tho dlaoasos of this organ aro curablo, esp eclally In the first stages.
Space will only allow a few names for reference who bavo boon cured or ear diseases here by
me. Scores moro might bo addod t

Tho diseases ol the cyu are very numerous
nlzod by tho ooullst, nil requiring different
vision. Yet nothing shows tbo folly of going
organ, than tbo fact that bo has only sufficiently studied this complicated organ sufficiently
to recognize from three to a dozen. 1 1 is In this, and tho carorul application or properly selected
remedies to tho and tho dlff orent affoctlons of tho eye, that the superiority and tho success of

and properly treated and attended to In tno earlier stages beforo It bas bad time to destroy or
Injuro permanently tho vision. Hut those cases that show blemishes and defects of vision' and
blindness so frequently, aro cases In which there has bocn delav In seeking an Oculist, and
valuablo tlmo was wasted by trying some domostlo remedies, or what Is noarly as bad, trylag
tbe ordinary physician.
1 do not mean by my remarks abovo to condemn or crltlclso the general practitioner for
treating Catarrh or dlacaaca of tho Eva or Ear that occur In his practlco. It Is hl duty to give
relief to all who are suffering lnanvandeverv way possible, and no doubt all do the best they
can. Hut tticy will all honestly confer that tuov have not tho means. In tho shspoof selected
remedies, Instruments, nor tha tlmo to acquire tbe skill and practice to do Justice to these
cases.
What I do want everybody to understand is that there aro a class of specially Instructed and
experienced doctors, men who have devoted money, time and study to those particular part
of tho human body, in order to acquire tho greatest amount of skill In treating tta affections
and diseases; and peoplo who aro suffering with any disease In theeo organs will, as far as
possible, iccovcr thn best and f ulloat use of these organs, who seek tho specialist tho- earliest:
and tho physician will deal honeatly with bis patrons who gives them such advice.
I sco In this country many cases of Strabismus, ("crooked eyes" thoy are generally termed),
which Is a defect In appearance, uncertain vision and weakens It. Nearly evorr one ot these
cases can bo completely cured, and some of them without any operation. Children should
nover start to school without having this remedied.
Eyelids that turn out showing tbo inside, or those that turn In and Irritate the eyo-balL can
all be perfectly cured. Artificial eyes can bo fitted and worn without any pain and to look
perfectly natural. I have a largo stock of thorn always on hand.
Did granulated lids cured surely.
