MORRIS FISH HE IN Editor, Journal ,of th* American Medical Association, and of Hy«th. Hie Health Chronic Inflammation of the olnts has been found In the skele- ons of reptiles that lived long bc- ore the days of man. The tissue of the cave bear and aoer-toothed tiger show the marks this infection. It was as prcva- ent in the prehistoric dwellers of upper Egypt as among the first inhabitants of Oreat Britain. It . represents toaay 'one of the most serious of the complaints that attack human beings and which science is as yet resisting' with but ndifferent success. Tile number of deaths attributed to rheumatic diseases and their complications rises steadily. Clout, for a while an apparently declining disease, begins to 'show an increased rate In recent years. In a review of the subject for the ministry ot health In Great Britain, Dr. J. Allison Glover emphasizes .hc'importance of the condition in London hospital?,' pointing out that at -many as 40 per cent ot patients seen in watering resorts -are sufferers from this chronic form ot disorder. In a great American clinic seven per- cent ol the patients treated are sufferers from chronic arthritis, as were also seven per cent of the patients in a municipal hospital In Berlin. Eleven per cent of the patients .reported by Boston hospitals ns suffering from chronic and Incurable diseases were the victims of chronic arthritis, whereas 19 per cent had heart disease, which is not Infrequently a related condition. " In the attempt to reach the cause of the chronic rheumatic complaints, It has been found that they . teiid to attack families and there seems to be some evidence that the constitution of the human being is related to his susceptibility to this disorder. Several investigators have found that 58 per cent of the patients are members of rheumatic families. Women seem to be much more susceptible to the disease than do men. the various authorities find- ing IhcT incidence In women some three to six times that In men. In addition to the family Influence there is the associated etfect on occupation. Thus one Investigator has pointed out that the occupation Indicates the Joints that will be Involved, Women doing sewing and knitting are effected .In (lie finger's.' Painters and workers with lead seem to be particularly susceptible to the disease, nnd chill and Exposure are associated with the frequency' of its occurrence among painters, metal workers, and the personnel of railway locomotives, i Dr. Glover -Is inclined to emphasize particularly the importance of prevention of dampness In dwellings and the Importance of free circulation of alf and of sunlight In the prevention;.of arthritis. Much has been said .of the importance of removing foci of Infection, in the teeth and tonsils, as well as elsewhere about the body in the attack on arthritis. Treatment without such removal does not In any way control the condition or the simple reason that the fotu» continues to feed the infectious material to the blood and by the blood to the Joints, so that new Infections are set up. * FOR OVIR Itii thin ol fcljfc priced brthrft, BEWARE THE COUGH FROM COLDS THAT HANG ON Cough) from colji nuy. lead to' to- rious irouMr. You cm >top then now wilh Crromuliion, tn enuIiiSed crwvile ih»t i> pleutnt. to take, CrtomuUion U a medictl dijcoierf wilh l»o-fold jclion; It toothei and heili the Inflamed membraac* and ia- hlbltt gtrra growth. .
