The mission of this journal is the education of the individual physician, in the exact, consistent, and rational action of single drugs, as applicable to exact conditions of disease.

Our motto has been, and is today, to determine the exact truth in drug action, in the most rational manner; to prove the truth; to apply the truth; and above all to spread the truth, from all to all, without regard to the creed of the individual.

Because of attention to the other branches in the past few years, the knowledge the mass of the profession has acquired in Therapeutics has been incidental, desultory, nearly always empirical, often erratic and impracticable.


Come with us, doctor, for the coming year, send us your dollar and your fact; get into the therapeutic swim; get all you can, but give all you get; help us bury therapeutic nihilism so deep that it will never be resurrected.

Sign your name to the insert in this number and send it back to us as herein instructed. Today; don't delay.
