Enos' Sanitarium,  ALTON, ILL.  DR. EN06 announces that he has established in a building purchased for th* purpose a SANITARIUM for the  TREATMENT 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 th* constant supervision of the physician and with the aid of means not otherwise at command, than when the patients are seen by their medical advisers at intervals of several hours or davs.  The position of the SANITARIUM is high, and the surrounding are free from all noxious influences. It is readily reached by the Second street horse can, and is near the Union Depot.  The building is large, and arrangements are as perfoct as is possible from a knowledge of sanitary science and the requirements of such an inst itut ion.  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. Enos, and rec jives hit-daily personal attention.  Now Onon  FOR THE RECEPTION OF PATIENTS.  For further information addrcn Dr. ENOS at the SANITARIUM, comer of George and Third att., Alton, III.
