iimple Chronic Rhinitis
Children and young adults are so
jeneraHy subject to more or less
narked chronic inflammation of the
ining of the nose that this very fact
iccounts for the great delusion that
!xposure to cold, drafts, dampness,
vet feet and so forth causes "colds."
I an individual has a- chronic low
jrade inflammation in the lining of
he nose (vulgarly known as nasal
;atarrh, though the word is meaning
ess), any temporary disturbance of
toe circulation is likely to increase
:he discomfort in the nose temporar
ily, and the thoughtless victim jumps
o the conclusion that he has "taken
2ld." Unfortunately this notion is
jvholly imaginary, for a normal indi
vidual suffers no illness from such
:emporary.eircu5atory disturbances as
ire produced by drafts, change of
(veather, dampness, wet feet or chill
ing of the body. Indeed, one of the
familiar symptoms of chronic rhinitis
is just this sensitiveness of the patl
3nt to slight aiterattonsk of environ
ment. And as we""have already
stated, chronic rhinitis is so very
prevalent (at least one-third of all
roung people Irving sedentary indoor
life have it), that the catching cold
phobia prevails in direct ratio with
the popular catarrh cure.
Chief among the causes of chronic
rhinitis is the low cost of fuel. It is
an ii wind that blows no good. The
war has brought certain, blessings to
the people, such as the final proof
that severe exposure in the trenches
does not, after all, cause pneumonia
or rheumatism. If every well-to-do
family in America and that includes
the intelligent working people. were
compelled to get along this winter on
one-third less (fuel .than last winter, it
