It i-5 well known that tuberculo.-H
now cla-.-cl among tlie di-oasos vJiich
are Loth contMgiou.s and infections. We
also know that this di-ease is to he
dreaded even more than smallpox,
diphtheria and s.cariet fever. It kills
every .-event u person, and it has heen
considered hitherto almost incurahio.
Numerous studies have heen made in
order to find a remedy, but all have
heen in vain.
The infectiousness of tuberculous
was proyed when Kobert Koch discoy
erel the specific bacillus and proved
his discovery by inoculations from pure
Although numerous attempts have
heen made to discover a means; of pro
tection against this disease, and al
though a great many scientists have
studied the disca-c, hotJi bacteriologi
cally and pathologically, there have
been found no such means.
About three weeks ago Dr. (J. M. Ca
ruso, director of the Military hospital
at Genoa, published a paper on a new
treatment of tuherculosis which was
begun bv him in J8S8, and which has
been adopted by many of the leading
E 1 1 n , i tea n physicians.
From Dr. Carasso's paper is taken
the following :
"In bSSS I started my first experi
ments, submitting the sick t continu
ous inhalations of ethereal o of pep
permint, at the same time adm.'iister
ing a solution of creosote and advising
hyperalimentation. As a result of this
treatment I noticed considerable im
provement in the general health of the
patient and became convinced that
this method by far excelled all other
methods hitherto known. I advised
long inhalations of the vapor from oil
of peppermint and took care that the
patients kept their breath so long that
the mixture of the atmosphere air and
the peppermint vapor could exert its
iniluence upon the walls of the respira
tory canal and upon the ti?sues of the
lungs as long as possible. The solution
of creosote, as administered through the
mouth, was mixed with a small amount
of the peppermint essence m order to
prohibit secondary inlection through
the alimentary tract.
"I found that by such treatment the
bacillus tuberculosis disappeared from
the sputum much more rapidly than
by any other method. They disap
peared in the cases treated by me con
stantly during r minimrm of ten and
a maximum of oO days. At the same
time the couuhing became less intense
and the membrane and sputum lost its
puslike and bloody serous character.
Perspiration did not take place to such
an extent as before ; the alimentation
became much more effective, and the
normal perspiration returned. The
physiological sound accompanying res
piration cntiiely disappeared.
"If there were any fever, It disap
peared in the course of a few days ; if
fever prevailed, I was dealing with a
"Out of 4: cases of pulmonary tuber
losis I had .'57 cases of recovery when
I first published my method. I con
cluded as to healing from the follow
ing facts :
"First. That bacillus tuberculosis
constantly disappeared from the spu
tum. "Second. All patients suffering
from pulmonary tuberculosis reached
perfect recovery, and many ot the heal
ings are at present from five to six
j ears old.
'Third. This simple and effective
method is perfectly harmless. f-qnee
that time new treatments have result
ed in additional cases ot recovery."
Dr. Carasso's communication is so
extraordinarily interesting that it
ought to he known, onlj- to physicians,
but also to the puhlic in general. In
view of the many sorts of bogus medi
cines in the market, which are claim
ed to he able to effect a cure of tuber
culosis, the sound mode of treatment
as advised by a celebrated and illustri
ous scientist and physician should be
noted. Tins treatment can be used by
anybody, and when the question as to
life and death arises, who will not be
glad to follow it, even its beginning
shouid be a little difficult?
This is no official document, but
merely a private attempt to demon
strate that even advanced methods of
medical treatment may be intelligently
understood if not intelligently carried
out by the public, and by men and
women not skilled in the practice of
medicine. J. Christian Bay,

Shall I Stop At?
Ry all means stop at the Mountain View Inn, conducted by Mil. Gkokoe
P. Horn-ox and his estimable wife. The hotel is new, the furniture and fittings
of the best, and the surroundings well kept. From the hotel is a grand view
of the must wonderful water frd'.s in the United States, the famous Chimney

BUT IS NOT THE PRICE TOO HKUL'
Xo ! It is really a puzzle to the visitors liow Mr. llorton furnishes the
excellent fare and the amusements to visitors that he does for the small charges.
Some of his visitors have insisted on paying him more, and this is the reverse
of most cases, for it is usual to have visitors growl at high rates. He r is
charges seven dollars per week, or twenty-four dollars for a full calendar month.

By-the-way, a party of prominent editors visited the place- and selected (he
location as the best place to build an Editorial Club House, ana they wrote
many -words of praise concerning the place and section. I will quote from the
Raleigh News and Observer.
"Here with loftv mountains on each side the most picturesque scenery e t of
the Rockies, we, a party ol editors, have met to see for ourselves and te!I the
world something of the real grandeur and sublimity. It is ;i revolution,
and yet how many are willing to live and die wil bout putting forth one effort
to view this wondrous ?cenery. The view from the (tome of Chimney
Rock is-superb. It must be seen to be thoroughly understood."
