ENOS announces that he has established in a building purchased for the purpose a SANITARIUM for the  TBEATMENT OF ALL CURABLE DISEASES.  BOTH MEDICAL and SURGICAL.  His experience during many years has convinced him that all diseases can be managed more successfully in an institution of this kind, under the constant supervision of the physician, and with the aid of means not other* wise at command, than when the patients are seen by their medical advisers at intervals of several hours or days.  The position of the SANITARIUM is high, and the surrounding are free from all noxious influences. It is readily reached by the Seoond street horse cars, and is near the Union Depot.  The building is large, and arrangements are as perfect as is possible from a knowledge of sanitary science and the requirements of such an institution.  Electricity in all its forms; Oxygen and its compounds; Baths, Douches, Massage, Inhalation, Nursing, etc., are provided as may be required by patients, in addition to such other treatment as may be deemed advisable.  A LARGE SOLARIUM  For Sun Baths and exercise in cold and inclement weather, etc., is provided.  Each patient is thoroughly examined by Dr. Enon, and receives his daily personal attention.
