FROST BITES.
What is termed "frostbite" or "chil
blains" by medical men is really a form
of inflammation of the skin and deeper
parts, produced by long exposure to cold
and having a tendency to terminate in
gangrene. The toes and neighboring
parts of the lower extremities, the fin
gers, ears and nose are most frequently
affected. Anaemic or thin-blooded per
sons and those debilitated'from insuffi
cient nourishment or fatigue are more
liable to suffer than are strong, healthy,
well-nourished people. The first state
or process of frost bite is a transient
redness, accompanied by hyperesthesia
and tingling. A sort of purple lividity
quickly follows and the sensibility or
knowledge of pain diminishes. Follow
ing this rapidly is the blanching or whit
ening without feeling or absolute in
sensibility of the parts. Coagulation
has then taken place, and the whitened
surface is frozen hard. If the process
is very severe, dry gangrene is soon es
tablished and the parts shrink up and
blacken. An inflammatory line of de
markation shows itself later. Several
excellent remedies for the successful
home treatment and cure of chilblains
have been given in club notes of this
department, but as there are many suf
ferers who have not had access to them I
will cheerfully describe the best method
that have been used by Home Health
club people.
One letter came in this morning,
which reads as follows: "I send you a
recipe that I have never known to fail
to cure chilblains. I was a sufferer of
chilblains myself so I thought I would
send it, hoping it may do some good.
One ounce of laudanum, one.ounce sal
ammonia, one and a half onuces distilled
or soft water. Rub this solution on parts
affected."
Another from Memphis says: "I no
tice a request for a remedy for chil
blains, and I know this is a sure cure,
as I have seen it cure where there were
festered sores: Take a lump of alum
about the size of the fist, dissolve in a
vessel to keep until the case is cured.
Every night and morning heat and hold
the feet in it 15 minutes, with water
enough to come to the ankles. It is
surprising how it will cure the worst
cases."
While a third, from a good old doctor,
tells of a simple and inexpensive method
which is easily applied. It is as follows:
"Wait until the frost has killed the
leaves on the little scrub oak and the
leaves are dry then gather three gal
lons of these leaves, taking those that
are hanging on the bushes, put them in
three gallons of water, and boil half an
hour or more. Strain off the water, and
as soon as it is cool enough not to scald
the feet put in the tea and let them re
main until the tea is nearly cold then
wipe the feet dry and retire. Repeat this
same treatment the next evening, and
the frost bites will not again trouble
you."
CLUB NOTES.
If A. L. S., Wisconsin, and O. C,
Durand, 111., will write again, giving
full name and address, I will be glad to
answer their letter to the best of my
ability.
Cincinnati.—Dr. D. H. Reeder, La
porte, Ind.—Dear Doctor: I am one of
the many lucky subscribers of this pa
per—a most true and honest family pa
per for the good and wholesome read
ing and information which it contains.
Among the many valuable items I take
a great interest in the Home Health club,
through which many of my worthy
brothers and sisters receive valuable ad
vice, with good results therefore, as I
am in poor health, I take the liberty of
improving the opportunity by asking
you for your kind advice. I am 56, but
look and feel worse than some men do at
80 or more. Doctors recommended med
icines which never did me any good. My
trouble is catarrh in head and stomach,
and doctors claim my liver and kidneys
are also affected. This trouble has such
a tight hold on my system that so far 1
have found no remedy to help or cure
me. I have the most annoying noises
in my head and ears often have head
ache no matter how careful I am I will
get colds often, and suddenly have pains
in right side and between shoulder.
Hearing and eyesight are badly affect
ed, which is worse in cloudy, damp
weather. I can eat good, hearty meals,
but do not get the strength I should have
from it. I am five feet six inches tall,
weigh only 109 pounds. There are specs
like a swarm of flies floating before
by eyes, I have bad breath and feel
drowsy and more tired in the morning
than at night. Now, dear sir, could you
advise me of some good remedy, if so I
would be very thankful to you.—Yours
very truly, R. A.
I would suggest that you procure
of your local druggist what is called
a colon tube, made of soft rubber,
about 15 inches long, and also a foun
tain syringe, holding about three
quarts of water using plenty of vase
line, insert the colon syringe to the ex
tent of about 12 inches, up into the
colon, and thoroughly flush it, using
this method about two or three times
per week for several months. Com
pound gentian sirup in the tablet form
is to be used regularly, and a char
coal (prepared) tablet after each meal
to prevent fermentation of food. While
you may not be suffering with gas, at
the same time there is a certain ca
tarrhal condition in your system which
these charcoal tablets will overcome.
The cause of the noises in your head
and ears is also evidently catarrh,
which has affected the Eustachian
tubes. In addition, the tissue ele
ments for catarrhal deafness, which is
the best thing for the conditions such
as you have described I have ever
known, and I believe that if you use
it, you will be benefited. I think per
haps I have suggested enough for the
present, and if you will adopt my sug
gestions, also practicing the exercises
for catarrh as given in book of Home
Health Club lectures, I do not believe
there will be any need of further
treatment.
Minnesota.—Dr. David H. Reeder, La
porte, Ind.—Dear Sir: I read your lec
tures and value them very hlghl
wish^you would therefore!
(subject of erysipelas in your articles.
My mother is troubled with it in one
leg. I would be very thankful for
your good advice. Respectfully,—*
E. J. L.
I will be very glad to discuss the sub
ject of erysipelas in the near future.
A lecture was given on the'subject a
year or so ago, but many new sub
scribers will appreciate another.
Oklahoma.—Dr. David H. "Reeder,
Laporte, Ind.—Dear Doctor: I am an
interested and enthusiastic reader of
the Home Health club, and as I want
others to receive the benefit, I am send
ing you a large list of names of those
who are in need of your good instruc
tions, and I hope all of them may join
the club.
In the hope that some poor sufferer
maye be benefited, I gladly send the
following formulas for the cure of can
cer of the nose and the other was on
the forehead: Take fresh hog's lard,
and put in skillet to melt. Add to this
the clean bark from the roots of com
mon sumak, as much as the lard will
take up. Bring slowly to a boil, and
keep boiling until your judgment tells
you the juice is extracted. Strain out
the liquid while hot, and when cool
it is ready for use. Apply on a cloth,
three or four times daily. Before ap
plying always wash the sore with
soapy water and dry well. For eczema:
Rub finger on white Russian soap and,
apply to the spots affected. This treat
ment has proven very effective for me.
Use once or twice daily. Wishing yon
success, I am, yours truly, S. C. W.
I am always glad to see people suffi
ciently interested as to want to help oth
ers. It shows they have caught tha
true spirit of the Home Health club, and
I trust many others will follow the ex
ample of S. C. W. As to the virtue of tho
cancer cure I cannot say, but it is a safo
home remedy, costs but little and is
worth trying.
Oregon.—Dr. D. H. Reeder, Laporte,
Indiana.
Dear Sir: We have long been subscrib
ers to this paper, and I have been
much interested in the Home Health
club, and also much benefited by fol
lowing your advice. I am now writ
ing you at the request of one of my
neighbors who wishes to know the
cause of a cold spot across the small
of the back. It is of long standing
and causes great discomfort. The party
wears a heavy pad across the back all
the time. His age is 60. If you can
give cause and suggest remedy, it will
be thankfully received.
I would also like to ask if the tissue
remedies you advise would be good for
a case of catarrh of 30 or 40 years'
standing. Also if they can be pro
cured from our home drug stores.
Thanking you in advance, I remain.
Yours sincerely, A. D.
In regard to your neighbor, the dif
ficulty in all probability comes from
defective circulation, although it may
be due to an injury to the spine. It
would be wise for him to have a
thorough and careful examination
make by a skillful osteopath. An ex
cellent treatment for Mm would be
to sponge the entire back with warm
vinegar, and then apply a thorough
hot fomentation, allowing it to re
main for three-quarters of an hour,
and after removing, rub the entire
back thoroughly with warm olive oil.
The use of the tissue remedies re
ferred to when combined with the
Home Health club methods of home
treatment for the cure of catarrh, will
nearly always effect a cure, in any
case, no matter of how long standing.
I regret to state, however, that few
druggists keep these tissue remedies
in tablet form.
Readers of this publication are nt
liberty to inquire for any information,
pertaining to the subject of health. Ad
dress all communications to the Home
Health Club, or Dr. David H. Reeder,
Laporte, Ind., and give name and ad
dress in full, with at least four cent3
in postage.
Demoralized.
A southern congressman, at Atlantic
City, told one of his friends that he was
going home somewhat demoralized.
"Yes, sirs," said the lawmaker, "I am
demoralized, and this reminds me of a
story I picked up from Brother Swan
son, who has been having a tough cam
paign in Virginia for governor. Swan
son says that at the battle of Malvern
Hill Gen. Lee met a loose-jointed, an
gular soldier—one of those fellows who
looked like his limbs were made of
long saplings, with an extra supply
of knee and hip joints, like the fifth
wheel of an artillery wagon in case of
accident.
'Where are you going, sir?' asked
the general.
'I'm gwine back to the wagons, gen
eral,' answered the long-legs.
'Are you wounded?' asked the com
mander.
'No, sir I hain't wounded.'
'Are you sick?'
'No. I hain't sick nor wounded,
nuther, but I'm terribly demoralized an'
I don't think it is any fitten place for
anybody.'"—Philadelphia Public Led
gei*.
An Awful Slam.
"Don't take it so hard, Mr. Playnman,"
said the young woman, mockingly,
"There are other girls, you know.
There's Lil Gumplins, Sallie Plimborn,
Kate Isnoggles, and Fan Billiwink.
Any one of them would make a better
wife for you than I would." "I know
it," he said, swallowing a lump in his
throat, and turning to go. "If any ono
of those four girls had said yes, do you
suppose I would ever have thought of
coming here for a Wife?"—Chicago
Tribune.
Nocturnal Farming.
An interesting trial made in England
on a farm near Biggleswade shows
that fields can be so illuminated by
acetylene gas that harvesting may be
easily carried on at night. In this
test two mowers, each cutting a six
foot swath, were employed and a field
of 15 acres was mowed in three hours
and 35 minutes. A gasoline traction
engine furnished the power.
He Wanted to Know.
"Yes," said Mabel, proudly, "when a
young man kisses me I scream."
"Mabel," said Reginald, with sudden
coldness, "why is it you are so often
