EXCITEMENT IN ROCHESTER.
Widespread Commetion Caused by
that Remarkable Statement of a

Democrat, created a deal of comment
here as it has elsewhere. Apparently
it caused even more commotion in
Rochester, as the following from the
same naner shows:
Dr. J. B. Ilenion, who is well known
not only in Rochester, but in nearly

remarkable experience and rescue from
what seemed to be certain death. It

personal enauiries which have been
' . nt ,.iMi
tlie article, but they nave been so nu-
merous that further investigation of the
subject was deemed an editorial neces
sity. :V. :-. V .;. :i
With this end in view a representa
tive of this paper called on Dr. Ilenion
at his residence on Andrews street,
when the following interview occurred ;
" That article of yours, Doctor, has cre
ated quite a whirlwind. Are the state
ments about the terrible condition you
were in, and the way you were rescued
such as you can sustain?"
" Everv one of them and many addi-
neglecting the first and most simple
svmntoms. I did not think I was sick.
It is true I had frequent headaches;
felt tired most of the time ; could eat
nothing one day and was ravenous the
next ; felt dull pains and my stomach
was out of order, but I did not think it
meant anything serious. The medical
profession have been treating symptoms

instead of diseases for years, and it is
high time it ceased. The symptoms I
have just mentioned or any unusual
action or irritation of the water
channels indicate the approach of
kidney disease more than a cough
announces the coming of consump
tion. We do not treat the cough,
but try to help the lungs. We should
not waste our time trying to relieve the
headache, pains about the body or other
symptoms, but go directly to the kid
neys, the source of most of theso ail
, " This, then, is what you meant when
you said that more than one-half the
deaths which occur arise from Bright's
disease, is it Doctor?"
" Precisely. Thousands of diseases are
torturing people to-day, which in real
ity are Bright's disease in some of its
many forms. It is a hydra-headed mon
ster, "and the slightest symptoms should
strike terror to every on who has them.
I can look back and recall hundreds of
deaths which physicians declared at the
time were caused by paralysis, apo
plexy, heart disease, pneumonia, mala
rial fever and other common complaints
which I see now were caused by Bright's
"And did all these cases have simple
symptoms at first?"
" Every one of them, and might have
been cured as I was by the timely use
of the same remedy. I am getting my
eyes thoroughly opened in this matter
and think I am helping others to see
the facts and their possible danger
Mr. Warner was visited at his estab
lishment on North St. Paul street. At
first he was inclined to be reticent, but
learning that the information desired
was about Bright's disease, his manner
changed instantly and he spoke very
earnestly : ,
" It is true that Bright's disease had
increased wonderfully, and we find, by
reliable statistics, that from '70 to '80,
its growth was over 250 per cent. Look
at the prominent men it has carried off :
Everett, Sumner, Chase, Wilson, Car
penter, Bishop Haven, Folger, Colfax
and others. Nearly every week the pa
pers record the death tf some promi
nent man from this scourge. Recently,
however, the increase has been checked,
and I attribute this to the general use
of my remedy."
( - " Do you think many people are af
flicted -with it to-day who do not real
ize it, Mr. Warner?"
"A prominent professor in a New Or
leans medical college was lecturing be
fore his class on the subject of Bright's
disease. He had various fluids under
the microscopical analysis and was
showing the students what the indica-
tion of this terrible malady were. And
now, gentlemen,' he said, ' as we have
seen the unhealthy indications I will
show you huw it appears in a state of
perfect health,' and he submitted his
rn nuia to uie usual test. As lie
watched the results his countenance
sudenly changedhis color and com
mand both left him and in a trembling
voice he said: 'Gentlemen, I have
made a painful discovery; I have
Bright's disease of the kidneys.' And
in less than a year he was dead. The
slightest indications of any kidney dif
ficulty should bo enough to strike ter
ror to any one."
" lou know of Dr. Henion's case?"
" Yes, I have both read and heard of
" It is very wonderful is it not?"
" not more so man a great many
others that have come to my notice as
having been cured by the same means
" You believe then that Bright's dish
ease can be cured."
" I know it can. 1 know it from my
own and the experience of thousands
of prominent persons who were given;
up to die by both their physicians and
" You speak of your own experience ;
what was it?"
"A fearful one. I had felt languid and
unfitted for bifsincss for years. But I
did not know what ailed me. When,
however, I found it was kidney difficul
ty I thought that there was little hope
and so did the doctors. 1 have since
learned that one of the physicians
of this city pointed me out to a gentle
man on the street one day, saying :
. There goes a man who will be dead
within a year.' I believe his words
would have proved true if I had not
providentially used the remedy now
known as Warner's Safe Cure."
Dr. S. A. Lattimore, although busily
engaged upon sotaie matters connected
with the State Board of Health, of
which he is one of the analysts, cour
teously answered the questions that
were propounded him :
"Did you make a chemical analysis j
of the case of Mr. H. II. Warner some
three years ago, Doctor?"
"What did this analysis show you?'.

"And what did the symptoms indi

publicity 0f pr. Henion's article has
cauged and to meet the protestations
which have been made. The doctor
was cured four years ago and is well and
attending to his professional duties to-
day. The standing ot ur. nenion, xur,
WaniM nlHr. Tnttimore in the com

statements they make cannot for a

it is exceedinclv common and that it

Their Origin, Growth, and Cnth lit crilx-tl

rs of mature growth;
others, again, old, and others still,
withered and dead. These thing's fol
lowed just as in any other evolution.
This earth is in its middle life, doing
what she was intended to do. The
stages oi a planet s, lue were given
from the time when it was formed
by the gathering together of the frag
ments until its death. The first stage
is that of intense heat, and the greater
part of the time the planet would be a
mass of vapor, the orb being lustrous
and glowing, gSvluc: out intense heat.
Later it would lose heat, and the great
er part of it would become liquid, af
terward becoming solid. The earth,
while in its first stage, had probably a
diameter ot 1U,UU0 or 12,000 miles, in
stead of 8.000 as at present In the
earlier stages the volcanic and other
disturbances were much greater than
now. The globe gradually became
cool enough for life, and life would be
gin. There is evidence that the earth
is ten minions oi years old, but it is
difficult to say what is the are
of j a planet- when life on it begins
Sir Isaac Newton believed that the
waters of the ocean were being grad
ually absorbed by the earth. The
waters of the sea were beingtliminished
in this way, but in what degree can not
be said. They are absorbed to the
thickness of a .sheet of paper in one
year, to the thickness of an inch in one
hundred years, in ten millions of years
(a mere second in .lime) ten thousand
feet, In time all the waters would be
gone, and m a long period the air itself
would become so thin that it would
not support life. Planets, like Other
bodies," cool slower as they are" of
greater duik. ii tno earth cooled in
ten million years, then it would take
Jupiter seventy million years to cool.
Thus, the. large planets are yet in their
youth r first stage, while the small
planets are in their advanced age.
Thus the moon shows old age, while
Jupiter is yet a baby. The larger ones
have the characteristics of youth and
the small ones old age.
Illustrations of those things were
thrown on the screen. The sun shows
better than any of the others the
vaporous firsts stage, and no one be
lieves it to be the abode of life. Being
the largest, the sun is the youngest of
all the solar system as regards advance
ment in life. The tornadoes of the sun
move at the rato of one hundred miles
per second. All tho tumults of earth
combined would not equal the noises on
iiflLSnuare mile of the- sun s surface.
The great disturbances of Jupiter were
compared with those of the sun. Jupi
ter j is still glowing, and too . hot for
life. Saturn was also said not to be
the abode of life.
The condition of planets less than the
earth was cons'dered. Mars shows
division of surface into land and water.
iu asses oi snow are seen, wnien grow
larger in winter ana smaller in sum
mer. This has been the case every sea
son for two hundred years the time
which has elapsed slnoc their discovery
Oceanic and air currents are also ob

The moon is so old as to be in plan
etary death, though evidences of her
fiery youth are yet to be seen in the
mouths of her extinct craters. She is
not too cold or too hot to support life,
but the seas are all absorbed, and there
is no air, or it is so thin that no crea

iure Known in mis worm could live m
in it. There is no water, and the moon
is ueau. i'lccures oi. tne moon were

Calculation Which Exhibits
icw people ever stop to count the
cost of luxuries If they should they
might sometime j hesitate in their ex
penditures. A wealth v octogenarian of
flarlford, who has indulged in smokino-
during all his life, or at least during all
his manhood years, has made an esti
mate, based upon data kept, as to the
cost ot his cigars for sixty-seven years.
He knows the amount he has expended,
and calculating the sum invested in
cigars every six months, aud placing it
at compound interest at eight per cent,
on the basis of tho saving bank calcu
lations, he finds that the total sum now
amounts to $200,000.
If all smokers of the woel would
keep an account of .the cost of this lux
ury, and calculate their investments in
cigars and tobacco, with compound in
terest added, they would be astonished
at the sums wasted by them in smoke.
The large sum found by the gentleman
who had smoked for sixty-seven years
was of course greatly increased in the
last twenty, and especially in the last
ten years, as money compounded every
six months at the rate of six per cent,
doubles in a little over ten years.
We frequently hear of intemperate
persons drinking up the value of a farm
or other property. But it is not often
that such a fortune as 8200.000 is con
sumed in smoke by one person. Ii this
Hartford gentleman is not an exception
al smoker, then the aggregate cost of
smoking ia simolv enormous.-
