NEW EFFECTIVE HAY FEVK»>
Hay fever, which annually
causes more sneezes, more in
flamed noses and more red,
streaming eyes than any other
scourge, may have its final big
fling this September, all because
a Pennsylvania electricalengineer
was served a dish of com meal
mush which was entirely too salty.
The engineer, sneezing, and
with all other hay fever mani
festations, stopped at a hetel
where he was served a dish «f
mush which he considered seed
ing back as it was much too salty.
Finally he ate it, however; the
hay fever attack lessened, ul
timately ceased. Next day he had
three meals, all oversalted, and
experienced his most comfortable
time in years in the “hay fever
His analytical mind quickly
grasped the possibility that the
saline substance in his food was
responsible for his relief.
About this time. Dr. E. E. Sel
leck, a graduate of Columbia Ubh
versity, met the engineer, made
notes, and when he returned te
his home, began experiments. To
day Dr. Selleck declares he has
found a certain means of relief
for hay fever and is supported is
his contention by other medical
experts, and a nationally known
chemical manufacturing eenceia,
the Hollings-Smith Company, at
Orangeburg, New York, has tak
en over making the remedy, which
is called Nakamo Bell.
Describing the experiments.
Dr. Selleck said, “After I was
sure I had found a means ad
auickly relieving hay fever
through the chloride group, K
tested it in the most practical
way I knew. I held a three day
clinic, to which many hay fever
sufferers responded, from ages
ranging from 10 to 60 years. Each
person was given two tabletswifc
a little water. Some relief icsae
to all within ten minutes. Reports
on these cases during the ensu
ing weeks showed practically »
complete cessation oi symptoms.**

One of the commonest coomb
