Not only has (he Soul hern Cotton

agricultural conditions of that

thousands of bales of cotton, ami

IMPORTANCE 01- THE NOSE-
Part Tkia Feature Mas Played in
In the history of medicine, which
goes hack nearly three thousand
years, there is very little in the
early writings of diseases of the
nose and throat
tialeu wrote a little on the sub
ject, and later Act i its, who was an
oflieer of the Court of Constant!
nople, wrote some and copied front
Oalen, aud still later Paulus issaid
to have removed a polypus from
the nose by a knotted string.
It was not until VU6 that a pub

The Arabians shrank in horror
from the ooutamiuatiou of a dead
human body, ronaeiiuently the sin
dents studied the anatomy of the
pig. r rederick 1 1 cotuuiaudcd that
a human body be dissected at one
of the schools at least once in live
years. For uearly two hundred
years apparently little advance was
made, lu spite of the greater prev
alence of the practice of dissection.
We should uot be surprised at this,
but relied on the few men of today
who see at the autopsy table or un
der the microscope anything uot
set down iu books.
Later conies the tolmcco therapy,
which was introduced by Sir Wal
ter Italeigh. Gregory Horst wrote
at this tune, and was quite enthu
siastic as to the medicinal procr
ties of tobacou in the treatment ot
catarrh and coryr.a.
In 1750 Ouelniaiz wrote a treat
ise ou deviation of the septum of
the nose, the first as far as has been
discovered. Horace Green in In ill
published his treatise on diseases
of the air passages, iu which he
claimed he could enter a prolie in
the luryux, his first successful op
eration being iu IN: Hi. M. Garcia

means of light rctlectcd from the

Vicuna, crfccted this method aud
used a concave mirror similar to
the one used today.
But not until lMil was this new
art of laruygoscopy reported iu
America by Harace Green and oth
ers; and not until l was laryn
gology included in the curriculum
of the Harvard Medical School.
Willielm Moyer reiRirted his obser
vations ou adenoid vegetation in
Ixtmloii soon after isiiH.
No other eveut since the discov
ery of the larnyxgoHcoiie has con
tributed at once to the glory nmi
the profit of the specialty of latyn-
igology. The rouioval of adenoma,
or the third tonsil, as tliej arc
sometimes called, has alleviated
more suffering aud prevented more
disablements thau any surgical
procedure which waa ever devised
by the wit of man. Carl Koller,
l$U, discovered the surgical
possibilities of cocaine.
The three greatest eventa in the
history of modern larynogology
and rhiuology are the deiuonstra
tiun of utility of the luryugoscoiic
by ('.ermak, the olmcrvatiou of
adenoids by William Meyer, and
the advent of cocaine, aud one more
receut discovery may be added, t lie
alkaloid of the siiprureutal gland
taken from the sheep, by which
operations ou the nose ami mucous
memlirautw have been practically
bloodless. Adenoids are a is-culiar
gland structure, aud are particular
ly susceptible to inllammatory ac
tions, and the slightest inllaniiua
tory change in this structure will
produce in children, and adults
even, a marked rise in tempera
lure, seemingly entirely out of pro
portion to the amount of trouble.
Childreu with this adenoid struct
tire are more susceptible to colds
and diseases of childhood than those
who tlo not have it.
Children so afflicted with this
gland fare far worse when taken
with diptberia aud scarlet fever
than those that are free from It.
When the gland is large it prevents
breathing through the nose, and
the child is seen habitually with its
mouth open, and the stupid, long
drawn out expitwsiou so often sccu
