Fresh
Kola Nuts

WE HAVE been contending and claiming for some time that the

fresh (undried) Kola nut possesses marked advantages over the commercial dried drug. Certain competitors, who probably never saw a fresh Kola nut, have attempted to ridicule our claims. Actual clinical work, however, has proven that we are right, and that all that has been claimed for Kola as a valuable cerebro-spinal stimulant

has been sustained in cases where the fresh Kola nut, or our preparation of it (Kolavin), has been used. The "sour grape” argument used by competitors, who through lack of enterprise or ability have not been able to secure the fresh Kola, cannot count against it. The statements that Kola cannot be imported direct from Africa in its fresh condition is most absurd, considering the fact that we have been sampling the medical profession with the fresh nuts for over a year. We still offer to send to all physicians who are willing to assume the express charges, not only samples of the fresh (undried) nuts themselves, but a sufficient quantity of Kolavin (Stearns' Wine of Kola) the preparation made from them, for a clinical test. We are headquarters for Kola and its preparations, having introduced it commercially into America in 1881, and we are to-day the only direct importers from Africa of Kola nuts in their fresh (undried) condition. Our literature on the subject is free to all physicians who may write for it.

under prolonged use. It has Gained a Wide Reputation, particularly in the treatment of Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Chronic Bronchitis, and other affections of the respiratory organs.

It has also been employed with much success in various nervous and debilitating diseases. Its Curative Power is largely attributable to its stimulant, tonic and nutritive properties, by

means of which the energy of the system is recruited. Its Action is Prompt; it stimulates the appetite and the digestion, it promotes assimilation and

it enters directly into circulation with the food products. The prescribed dose produces a feeling of bouyancy and removes depression and melancholy; HENCI THE PREPARATION IS OF GREAT VALUE IN THE TREATMENT OF MENTAL AND NERVOUS AFFRO

From the fact, also, that it exerts a double tonic influence, and induces & healthy flow of the secretions, its use is indicated in a wide range of diseases.

TIONS.

NOTICE-CAUTION.

The success of Fellows' Syrup of Hypophosphites has tempted certain persons to offer imitations for sale. Mr. Fellows, who has examined samples of several of these, finds that no two of them are identical, and that all of them differ from the original in composition, in freedom from acid reaction, in susceptibility to effects of oxygen when exposed to light or heat, in the property of retaining the strychnine in solution, and in the medicinal effects.

As these cheap and inefficient substitutes are frequently dispensed instead of the genuine preparation, physicians are earnestly requested, when prescribing the Syrup, to write "Syr. Hypophos. Fellows."

As a further precaution, it is advisable that the syrup should be ordered in the original bottles; the distinguishing marks which the bottles (and the wrappers surrounding them) bear, can then be examined, and the genuineness-or otherwise-of the contents thereby proved.
