Our Advertisers.

If it were not for the advertising in this journal it could not possibly be published and furnished to subscribers for less than two dollars a copy without loss. And that would not pay the editor for his services. The advertising therefore is necessary. I select my advertisers with great care, and I refuse many that are accepted by other journals. While I do not usually approve of compounds, those recommended here are of the very best, and are manufactured from our own medicines. If you desire to help the publishers, and the editor, to keep up a good journal at a very nominal expense to you, drop a postal card to these advertisers, and ask them about their goods, and tell them about this journal, what you know about it. This is legitimate. It helps me and helps you.

No man more perfectly than a physician can appreciate a cozy carriage in stormy weather. Many a robust man, devoted to his profession, has lost his health, and in many cases, his life, by not being able to secure a light, warm carriage in which to visit his country patients. The Fouts and Hunter Co., of Terre Haute, Indiana, have succeeded in combining all the desirable qualities of such a carriage and offer it to the medical profession at a reasonable price. Write them directly and mention this journal.

I have frequently called the attention of our readers to the advantages offered by Mr. Maccoy in his American Training School for Nurses, to the physician to secure for his nurses, the training he especially desires. In large cities good nurses are easy to secure, but physicians in small townsisolated physicians, physicians remote from medical centers-are often obliged to send a hundred miles or more, for a good nurse, when they could by complying with Mr. Maccoy's request, have their nurses trained at home under their own observation and instruction. Write Mr. Maccoy, 1030 Crilly Bldg., Chicago.

It is routine treatment with me to supply my typhoid fever patients with peroxide of hydrogen, to drink freely during the entire course of the disease. In any condition where gastric, or intestinal asepsis is needed, I find this excellent. In the summer complaints of infants, frequent bowel flushings of this remedy are valuable, in fact, important. I have used glycozone in chronic catarrh of the stomach, with excellent results. This is solution of peroxide of hydrogen in glycerine.

A scientifically prepared tonic upon which the physician can depend after typhoid pneumonia, diphtheria, and prostrating fevers of any kind, is a most desirable accession to his resources. Gray's glycerine tonic Compound is such a tonic. It aids digestion, promotes assimilation, gives a satisfactory stimulus to the nervous system, and promotes a rapid recovery. This preparation has been before the profession long enough to thoroughly establish its merit. It has won wide approval, as it justly deserves.

No manufacturing house in our country has taken more pains to establish a reputation, by the actual quality of their goods, than has Parke, Davis & Co., of Detroit. They have always made it a point to meet the very latest demands. A change of sentiment is just now taking place in the use of milk as a food, and butter milk is becoming very popular. This firm prepares a lactic-acid ferment, which manufactures a most superior butter milk, in that it retains all the butter fat in the milk. It is a most desirable beverage and is excellent for infants, invalids, and convalescents. Write the company.

Those of our readers who desire a most delightfully cool, pleasant and quiet resort for their patients during the summer months, should correspond with Dr. Hirschfeld of Winnetka, Ill. His sanitarium is the place where I send my patients. There is not an undesirable feature in the establishment. The doctor is a perfect gentleman, and his corps of assistants are refined and accommodating. This is certainly an ideal place for invalids and convalescents.

I have received a great many letters lately from doctors who want to know where they can get the tissue remedies of Schussler. I have made arrangement with Halsey Bros. of Chicago, to supply these remedies directly to all who may write them. I have known this house for a good many years and I take pleasure in recommending them. Mention this journal when you write, if you want special favors. It is a good plan to try these remedies at least, as they certainly have excellent properties when correctly indicated, and well understood.

Chionanthus is well known to our readers as an efficient liver stimulant. The Peacock Chemical Company prepare this with special view to the necessity of the busy doctor. Their bromides are of excellent pharmaceutical properties and will combine the sedative effects of the best of these compounds. We have had some trouble to establish the value of cactus. The Sultan drug company get results, they claim, from their cactina pilletts in the treatment of heart disease, as a safe, and reliable cardiac tonic in the treatment of functional disorders especially in rapid heart, slow heart, and sub-normal temperature.

Dr. Becker's compound digest is an old and familiar preparation. I would like to have our doctors use it and report on results. It is prepared from the enzymes which are obtained from the stomachs of domestic fowls and domestic animals.

Notwithstanding the fact that echinacea is rejected by The Journal of the American Medical Association, it is without doubt the most popular remedy we have today. Combined with thuja it constitutes a very important treatment for cancer. I am using it to prevent the return of an exceedingly severe cancer of the breast, with fine results. This combination has a very wide range of uses, both externally and internally. These ingredients are scientifically combined in Eusoma manufactured by the Eusoma Pharmical Company, of Cincinnati. I know of no finer combination.

For many years our physicians have used phytolacca, cimicifuga and stillingia with superb results in the treatment of rheumatism, and in any condition where there was uric acid poisoning. The Anti Uric Company, of Peoria, manufacture Uric-Antigon, from these ingredients, and they find that it possesses remarkable efficacy. It embodies the active properties of those agents which we depend upon to overcome lithemia. This preparation (Uric-Antigon) must be used to be fully appreciated.

Every physician has trouble with his dropsical patients. Notwithstanding the fact that we have specific medicines for dropsy we have many cases that do not present the specific indications for these remedies. The Anasarcin Chemical Co. prepare from sambucus, oxydendron, and squills a preparation which they claim is giving fine results. Those, who have tried it should report on its efficacy as it is important that all should know of the best dropsy cures.

I have never seen any reason why physicians should hesitate in sending their old "alcoholics" which they cannot otherwise cure to the Keely Institute at Dwight, Ill. On the contrary I have seen many reasons why they should. As near as I have been able to determine after watching, that institution for nearly 25 years, I have never been able to see anything but good results. They have removed the appetite for drink, in more than ninety per cent of the cases treated, and no other treatment has done as well.
