Express, The (Newspaper) - May 20, 1882, Chicago, Illinois The stub Dat May its Story Tom in an interesting Fay by one f to knows All the Early struggles of a suf Fering physician after restored How he finally found it in the life preserving principle of common Aliat it will has and can do for Safe of Ink that the past has Given us All we can Ever know in my science or is so Clear a fallacy that we Bejoc Titre half stated and yet it is remarkable How Many Able scientific and professional men Are held in bondage by old theories which have been in As it into the very texture of their but which new facts and the application of broader principles have shown to be brighter and better aspect of the subject is seen in tie fact that in All professions there Are leading and Independent like feel them selves to be Only standing on the Shore of an illimitable sea of to these the world is indebted for nearly All the Advance ment which has been like most of the worlds they have bad too of ten to do their work in the face of oppose contumely and conservatism and self interest Are Quick to array themselves against All new or new applications which discredit old Theo Ries held or bring a profitable Craft into the higher ak1 More Active forces in that All the higher and More Active forces in nature Are Subtle and is a fact More and More clearly seen every steam is More Active and powerful than and electricity than both Are in the invisible air which surrounds the Earth is not Only stored up All the principles and activities of but the vital elements from moment by we draw the living forces of our if the air we breathe becomes or if from any cause it is robbed its due measure of disease or depressed vitality will follow and if these atmospheric conditions remain unchanged for any considerable death will be the considerations like these naturally Lead to the questions of atmospheric influence upon health and and the extent to which Modem investigation has gone in this and the results which have been All Intelli gent and especially whose profession leads them to the study of but experiments did not wholly in spite of All that either of the great schools of Medicine could the death Roll under the fatal shafts of consumption showed no rather a steady the victims numbering from annual Yin the United Stales what was to bed nov so Faras the Means possessed by the medical profession was con Little or nothing could be unless answering to closer and deeper gave a new secret of the Case was that nature held this secret Many believed but in what element was it hidden How get the Clew to its Dis covery it is now Over fourteen years since that Clew was and the secret of Healing Dis and from that Day to this Itcan be said without fear of contradiction that consumption has been stricken from the list of incur Able hundreds of grateful men and women standing ready to attest the fact in their own let us give a Brief and True history of this by which a particular combination of oxygen and nitrogen was made and devel oped into a practical and Safe curative agent and this after a Long and laborious scientific the great a physician who had suffered from an attack of which came near prov ing found his convalescence so slow and imperfect As to oblige him to relinquish his general practice and seek recovery in a foreign several months diligent Pursuit of his lost health ended in disappoint ment not willing to abandon the Hope of recovering his former soundness of he thought tomake available his scientific knowl that of like hundreds before Phinij he seized upon the idea that the natural stimulus of the promised the greatest Reward for re search and unlike the Many who had failed to win the he had a deeper interest in the Success of his labors than the love of abstract How Ever pure that May having possessed himself of the English and Continental literature upon the and profiting by the failures As Well As successes of european he entered upon his the Crown of All these efforts was the discovery above referred by the use of this new substance the doctor rapidly regained his health and has fully maintained it Ever under its which became quickly apparent in an improved appetite and Power of digestion and his weight in creased fort pounds in three and from a reduced weigh 10 pounds he went on gaining until his old permanent weight of 190 pounds was these Are the simple res but ask is this new substance it is a combination of oxygen and the two elements which make up common or atmospheric in such proportion As to Ren Der it much Richer in the vital or life giving causes in connection with know that the general health of any Community is quickly affected by a change in the Quality or condition of the common while it is almost impossible to determine by known chemical with any degree of the exact of any atmospheric change Jinan it is very Wen known that Quality of the blood is and All the nervous centres depressed or rendered More Active by such conditions of the at mob in epidemic diseases which arise from some unfavourable condition of the the medical profession almost always finds itself at and treatment is More or less experimental one school of Medicine follows one line of according to its Best judg and another school of Medicine an in the but Little general Relief is found until the atmosphere is reduced to its Normal the crude and powerful drugs which in the Hist and too often in the were and Are administered so helped the epidemic to instead of saving the successful treatment of the its in these epidemic which gave a death rate considerably lower than the crude compelled the latter to abandon to a very Largo extent their heroic treatment As they boldly the gave How came it that their patients recovered in a larger percentage than those treated by allow atheists it was nature that they not the homoeopathic then Why not let nature alone Why hinder her de press her and clog her vital machinery with crude and poisonous which if taken by a Well Man would make him sick there was no resisting these con and the consequence has been a less and a less Reliance by the old school of medi Cine on and More on nature assisted by hygienic but As there were a Large portion of them which no treatment known to the most enlightened and skillful was Able to cure diseases which were on the and one of gave a death rate annually of nearly on fifth of the whole number reported in the Bills of advanced and progressive Mem Bers of the profession lost Faith in Pill and and turned investigation and Experiment into Tho Region where reside the More Subtle and powerful forces of the discovery by priestly of oxygen As a Dis Tinct that element in the atmosphere which enables All air breathing to naturally enough led to the among intelligent physicians and that oxygen ought to restore men to full vitality in cases where vitality had bean partially lost by for Many this conviction has been so Strong that experiments by the hundreds have been made to use oxygen As a curative agent but the result proved so unsuccessful Tii atthe Best men in the profession yielded to disappoint ment and became sceptical As to its having any curative virtue and if you ask almost any intelligent physician his opinion As to the Power of oxygen to cure he will tall that i4has been tried faithfully Over and Over again mid found at and Here let it be said that the use of oxygen in an uncombined state has disappointed and probably always will disappoint what would seem to be a reasonable expect turn of its has a mixture of oxygen with common air in various proper Irons to produce the Healing effects which bean looked for with to much element it is a preparation of which chemists know and differs essentially from All subjects used in medical it contains no unless the elements of pure air Are medicines and Ita administration introduces into the body nothing which the system does not Welcome As a accept Wiki appropriate As entirely homogeneous to and claim As its own Birthright but it is More than simply a com Pound of oxygen and in the Atmos phere these elements exist in the proportion of one of oxygen to five of nitrogen and the combination of them is that known As mechanical mixture and so neither ele ment is changed by being mixed with the in this combination the proportion of the elements is so altered that the oxygen is greatly in and in the manufacture of it the oxygen is which gives to it the Quality known by scientists As naturally the question comes How does Thih new combination or compound of oxygen and nitrogen cure disease we will try to make the answer the use of oxygen is to purify the blood which comes Back through the veins from All parts of the body loaded with this impure blood is sent by the heart into the where it comes so near to the air inhaled that nothing lies Between them but a Flimsy Mem so attenuated that the oxygen of the air is instantly absorbed through it into the Here it immediately forms a chemical Union with the Carbon which it finds in the thus generating carbonic acid Gas and this Gas passes As rapidly through the same to be exhaled with the As Tho oxygen did in Tho opposite thus the blood is relieved of its and left of a Crimson color and in this state is returned to the heart to be again sent on its life and health dispensing we can now see How a Bountiful Supply of oxygen May act to restore a diseased through purification of the to a state of healthy owing to Many customs and habits incident to our civilized modes of few of us get As much oxygen As Tho Best welfare of our bodies this continued deficiency of vital air is enough of itself to work indefinite the blood never gets properly purified in the simply because not enough oxygen is admitted to the blood to dissolve out the car the blood being thus sent Back into the system Only partially relieved of its in these not Only clog its channels of and cause obstruction to All the vital actions of the worse be come poisonous in their if Thev accumulate beyond a certain cause blood poisoned such As jail and putrid a plats and commonsense is it not Plain to be seen that if the which Are doing the Best they under these to get sufficient oxygen from the air to dissolve out and remove the carbonaceous could receive now and then a Supply of air More richly furnished with a More prompt and thorough purification of the blood would take and every Organ in the body receive new instalment of Igor and life All this would come from breathing the atmosphere simply Richer in crude but How much must this chemical action be enhanced As in the Case of the new compound now under consideration the air inhaled were not Only made Richer in but rendered More highly Active through its magnetic by virtue of this magnetic property All the great nervous centres Are first to feel its this proves an increase of vital which the nerves transmit to every part of the or Guiam with the blood purified and All the nervous forces normally Active disease is re moved and health nor is this All theuer Vous centres appropriate this compound As and there by becoming larger and More intense and and thus capable of continually generating a greater amount of vital which is this is the Plain and commonsense theory of the new which has already restored to partial or Complete health thousands of in Many of whom had been Given up by their physicians As the of test application of thib beat Dis and after this digression touching the nature and action of Thia which the air we breathe can be made Richer in its life giving we proceed with the Story of its develop ment and application to the cure of immediately on his restoration to health the discoverer of this new combination of oxygen and nitrogen began the work of extending its benefits to and opened office for Ite by Means of for the cure of to give it a name had now become a after due the one by which it i Jiow so widely compound was selected As the most As we have in the first administration of compound the discoverer did not propose to treat any beside pulmonary Dis but it soon became apparent that the new agent or cure had no limited or partial that it was not specific to any oho but acted As a Vitalizer of the whole Newe healthy action of All the life forces determined to that part an improvement in the general health of his patient at once and the diseases for which they had not sought the Aid of thin Subtle this was opening a wide sphere of and com Pound oxygen proved itself As efficacious in the whole Range of and what were called incurable As in med As the first administration of compound oxygen was by office Only a comparatively could Avail them selves of its How was it to be made available to millions All Over the land we shall about the year 1809 Starkey for some years professor of surgery in the Phila Delphia homoeopathic and a Phy Simian of High Chirac Erand personal integrity was forced to abandon a Large practice in consequence of failing circumstances brought to his knowledge the new and to was led to a thorough investigation of its chums and the results which came under his observation filled him astonishment cases As a he had come to regard As beyond the reach of All known were speedily cured and Relief from pain Given to patients who had been hopeless sufferers for he Well understood that if he espoused the cause of the now and identified himself with its he would come under the ban of his professional Breth and be classed by them with quacks and nostrum but he was grave and a thoroughly educated Phy and a practitioner of wide experience and he was Able to distinguish Between real and imaginary and be tween the True and apparent facts which Are constantly presented by physicians in their observation of clearly satisfied that a new agent of cure had been and that in its administration the physician could successfully treat a Large Range of chronic diseases for which the highest medical skin had been Able hitherto to do Little or he acted with the courage of his convictions in face of the condemnation and Ostra cism of his professional indent Ned himself with the new treatment a wide Field of it soon became apparent to Starkey that unless the now compound of oxygen could be made available beyond Mere office its administration would be limited to the denizens of and that the great body of the people could not share in its except at considerable Cost and much to fix this new com Pound in a vehicle by which it could be read ily transmitted to All parts a the and mencing year today treatment com it is a my Bitt nerve seemed ice arid Bot til out Thein

professional skill with trained business habits has borne ample fruit there Baa not Only been a steady improvement in the Quality of the and a rapid growth of its but a series of most remarkable cures so remarkable that it can be said without fear of contradiction that there cannot be found in medical history a record of such Brilliant results in and of ten abandoned cases As Are Given in a single number of Starkey Valensi health and quarterly record of cures and cases under the compound oxygen treat at Philadelphia Lor free Cir in this which has been issued every three months for two will be found in the language the patients stories of suffering that seem beyond human often run Ning through Long and weary and baffling the highest medical skill but reached at last by the almost miraculous effects of this new revitalizing and subtly powerful agent let us give the Reader a few of and in doing so it is Only fair to the Public and to the honorable and conscientious physicians who dispense this now to say that each report of a Case is verbatim in the words of the and that every Opportunity for the verification of reports is afforded to those who will Call upon Starkey it Palen at their office in Philadel or communicate with them by a Bema Kable the first extract presented is from the number of health and life issued we condense the remarkable report of a Case headed belief from almost incredible suf one of the natural inferences which every one must draw from a Case like this that if compound oxygen can act so subtly and powerfully in a system As fearfully Dis eased As was
