Early in the past year Dr. Farquhar of Newark, Ohio, asked the readers of this journal for their experiences in the use of rubus odoratus, the rose flowering raspberry. He had seen two cases of albuminuria treated with it, successfully. One of these was a case anasarca, and the other was a case where the urine was loaded with albumin. He was anxious to know more of the remedy especially if there were cases of albuminuria which it would cure.

We certainly need no single remedy more than this. If this influence is exercised by it I have not been able to obtain many facts concerning it, but it is possible that others have used it with good results. I sincerely hope that some one who has used this remedy will reply to this request. The remedy is not mentioned in the U. S. P. I find no reference made to it in Foster's Encyclopedic dictionary.
