THE ORIGIN AND DANGER -O F- CATARRH -IF YOU SUFFER FROM- Catarrh, Catarrhal Deafness, Head Noises, Catarrh of the Stomach (which is often mistaken ' for Indigestion), Catarrh of the Bowels, A sthma, Bronchitis, Loss of Smell, Phlegm dropping in the back part of the Throat, or if you have & Cough. -YOU SHOULD NOT FAIL TO READ EVERY WORD OF THIS ARTICLE. What Parmint, the Wonderful English Formula, Has Done for Others, It Should Do For You. CATARRH, A LOATHSOME AND INSIDIOUS DISEASE Catarrh is a very common name for a very common disease, so common that most people do not realize how fearful, dangerous and disgusting it is. A cold in the head, hawking, spitting, blowing of the nose, phlegm dropping in the throat, bad breath, dullness of mind, bad humour-this is the way it starts. And where does it end? Frequently In Catarrh of the Stomach, Cartarrh of the Bowels. Bronchitis, and often light or total deafness results. That nasal catarrh is a nauseating disease any one knows who has had to sit close to, or talk face to face with a person reeking with purulent catarrh. Have you ever had to endure in sickening silence the hawking and gagging of a catarrh victim, or had to sit close to such a person and experience a disgusting, appetite-losing, foul odor, which ypu could not explain, and did not know* what it was? That is catarrh and there are many people who have it and don't know it. HOW CATARRH STARTS Catarrh usually begins with a cold In the head. The Catarrh germs breathed in through the mouth or nostrils have settled upon the inflamed and delicate mucous membrane that lines the nose and throat. These germs are harmless to healthy tissues; when they lodge upon an irritated, surface it means a more and more diseased condition of the membranes. They thus produce further inflammatory irritation and in time even ulceration. The sufferer from catarrh often finds his sight and hearing failing. He suffers from an almost constant dull ache over the eyes and across the forehead. The mind becomes dull when the membranes of the nasal cavities are in a discharging ] condition. It is the pus and decaying matter oozing from these sores that causes the offensive breath so common to victims of catarrh. You may not notice it yourself. You probably do not. But your friends do, though they are too careful of your feelings to tell you bo. NASAL CATARRH ThlB form of Catarrh is, to say the toast, sickening and disgusting, besides being most common and highly dangerous. The changes - of weather render the delicate mucous membranes in the nose and throat very susceptible to Inflammation, and thus encourage the birth and growth of catarrhl germs. The nose and throat are what might be called the highway of life. The throat itself is divided into two main pasages; one the Oesophagus, or gullet, going to the stomach, the other the respiratory tract or Trachea, going to the bronchial tubes and luugs. Through the lungs the blood passes with every heart beat and there comes in contact with the air. If the air breathed in is pure, and if nose, throat and lungs are sound, the dark blood is at once purified and passes out of the lungs in a bright red stream, carrying life and strength to all the body. If, however, the air breathed in is bad, or if the nose, throat or lungs are diseased in any way, then the blood, (instead of being Jmrified by its passage through the ungs) is, on the contrary, still further poisoned and goes on its way carrying lb* disease to all parts of the system. CATARRH OF THE STOMACH (Often mistaken for Dyspepsia or Indigestion) Many cases of indigestion and dyspepsia are simply the result of catarrh of the throat and stomach. At night as you lie asleep, the mucus drops down from the throat and head and is swallowed into the stomach. In the morning you awake feeling heavy and tired; there/is a bad taste in your mouth, you are in a bad humor; you wonder what ails you. You have catarrh, catarrh of the stomach and your whole system is poisoned and reeking with the disease. Your stomach has become clogged and the delicate membrane is coated with a vile sticky substance. Thei catarrh mucus refuses to be digested and only passes out of the stomach with great difficulty. Little by little, the mucus with the catarrh germs which it has carried settles permanently on the mucous membranes which lines the stomach. Real dyspepsia and indigestion are caused by lack of digestive juices. But here we have a condition where the membrane is able and ready to do its work, but it is prevented by foreign matter which has dropped down from the head and coated it. How then, can the usual treatment for indigestion be of use? Since catarrh is the cause of the trouble, it is the catarrh that must be treated. If you have catarrh of the stomach we believe that if taken faithfully for a reasonable length spf time Parmint will bring you an amount of relief that will fully compensate you for the cost and time expended. CAUSE OF DEAFNESS A cause which Is responsible for a great many cases of deafness is catarrh. The whole trouble generally begins in a simple cold in the head. During Huch a cold almost every person experiences that feeling of (,-tuffiness which tells of inflammation extending into the post-nasal space v/here the openings of the Eustachian Tubes are located, and which is accompanied by catarrhl secretions, collected in the post-nasal space, whore it h difficult to blow it out of the nose or hawk it up. When such conditions have become chronic, as in catarrh, the danger is grave. The mucus, carrying the g".rms. drops into the throat. The glue-like nauseating mass sticks for a lime to the sides of the turoat. The germs are quick to take advantage of the opportunity. They invade the Eustachian Tubes. Their presence and irritation it causes produce more and more mucus. Gradually this fills up the ear tube so that sounds can only pass through with difficulty. The patient! finds his hearing slowly going. When the tubes are completely filled total deafness may result. In deafness from nasal catarrh, which affects the middle ear, it often happens that crackling sounds are present which distress and confuse the patient. These are due to the fact that the mucu* which fills the upper part and back of the throat I3 covering the opening of the Eustachian Tubes and the bursting of bubbles or the movement of mucus causes the sounds, which come from the altered resonance of the ear. After a crackling report the head may seem clearer and the hearing better for a time. Later on in the case there may be crackling sounds when swallowing, which come from the efforts of a stiffened muscle to open the tubes-'which yield with a jerk. The above explanation of a most common cause of deafness should make it clear how absurd and useless it is to attempt to overcome such deafness by ear drums or devices of a similar sort. Let it be understood, however, that Parmint is not for ear troubles other than those caused by catarrh. If your trouble is caused by scarlet fever or any disease apart from catarrh, or if caused by an injury, Parmint is not for you, and you should consult your own family physician regarding your case. t- DON'T NEGLECT A COUGH If jcu have a cold and it has left you with a, cough, no matter how slight-you ought not to neglect it. j A cough is generally an indication : that there is inflammation in a dangerous place, and proper treatment should be secured at once. Delaying treatment may mean that the cough may settle, develop and stay. Even the slightest cough indicates a danger and should^ receive prompt attention. Unless your cough has become extremely deep seated or has hung onto you for a long time, we believe that you will find a quick relief from your trouble by the use of Parmint. WHAT PARMINT IS? Parmint is an English formula put on the market in England about 10 years ago. It. is a combination of ingredients having values in the treatment of catarrhl conditions, bronchial affections, etc.,' compounded from /the best grade oi> material it is pos/lble to obtain. Parmint is put up in'one-ounce bottles in concentrated form which are labelled "Parmint-Double Strength." These one-ounce bottles ym-mo. Black Spanish Hen, 1, C. W. TInirst, Calgary. R.C.
