This is a monograph of about thirty pages on the use of a mask, the object of which is to produce a hyperemia of the lungs. The author believes that the hyperemia thus produced acts favorably on a variety of conditions, from tuberculosis to whooping-cough and from auto-intoxication to heart disease. Directions for using the mask are not given, but the author says that such directions will be found accompanying each mask, which reminds one somewhat of the directions found around a bottle of patent medicine. A little more evidence than that presented will be necessary to establish for the mask a prominent place as a therapeutic agent.
