unmanageableand to be met only with palliatives for transient relief. But in due time it soon transpired that Electrobole was a final cure I that in most cases the malady never returns. When this fact was stated in his presence: ** What!" said Dr. King, "no relapse f" Then, slowly, he added: "Here is something, and let's make a note of it." From this moment it seems that Dr. King freely accepted the accomplished discovery, and directly began his researches to trace the hidden link between the Cause and the Cure. All medical practice must depend on this adaptation, and generally the Cause is presumed to be known before the Cure can be indicated. Such argument is a priori from Cause to Effect. But in this instance our doctor was compelled to proceed from the Cure so lately discovered to the unknownthe mysterious Cause, which had never yet been fully demonstrated. This argument is a posteriori, logically as well as practically conclusiveand No Relapse, Hence, a New Theory is derivednecessarily involved in the discovered antidote; and we here briefly annex the following from Dr. King's notes on the subject; THESIS OF HEMORRHOIDS. 1.That Piles or Hemorrhoids, of whatever kind or degree, differ in one respect only, and may be divided generically into two classesSimple or Primary, and Symptomatic or Secondary. 2.That Primary Piles are strictly local, and a transient disorder brought on by constipation or overstrain and intensified more or less by a septic humor from the faeces being too long retained. 3.That Secondary Hemorrhoids are always Symptomatic evidence of some general or constitutional detriment in the Blood, caused by functional defect, as stated elsewhere. Or perhaps, being a scrofulous embolism, suppurating at the natural ventsuch a conveniencebut, above all, what a safeguard for the patient sufferer! 4.That all external applications, such as ointments, astringents, suppositories, caustics, ligatures, and even the knife, are not only uncertain and temporary, but they seriously jeopardize the patient's life, because the impurities of the blood, being no longer voided, are thrown back to the lungs; thence to be expectorated until the hour of death. 5.That, from the foregoing, plainly there must be a diverse prognosis, since, with proper treatment, Primary Piles ought to have instant relief or final cure, in very limited time. While "Secondary Hemorrhoids," with the same treatment, though always relieved, will yet require from three to six months; if, indeed, there be vital force still sufficient to answer the antidote in restoring the "functional equilibrium," without which final cure is impossible. 6.That "Electrobole " is this precise antidote, indicated by science; and directed to the smaller intestinesa thoroughfare against malarial poison; but having been discovered a true specific also for Hemorrhoids, or Pilesthis, surely, is most natural and a consummate proof of its wondrous efficacy in its full effect, as the Great Alvine.
