In the October issue of the Journal there is described "A Scientific Ozone Inhaler," by Dr. Cyrus Edson of New York City. Ozone is a useful remedial agent, which has been used to advantage in many pathologic conditions, but the apparatus described is not a conservative method of generating this gas, as but a small portion of electric energy is utilized for this purpose. It compares with the scientific method of generating ozone very much as the heating capacity of a single steam-pipe does with that of a modern steam radiator.

The most economical and practical method of generating ozone is by means of the ozonizer first described by Siemens, and which I have used in the treatment of diseases of the nose, throat and ear for some years, and described in the Journal of Laryngology, London, July, 1987.
