YOUNG AMERICA AND FAITH DOCTOR.A Scranton mother whose son had toothache, took him to a faith healer. “Look me in the eyes," said the doctor, fixing a fascinating gaze on the weeping youth. “ Now your toothache has entirely disappeared. You haven't a bit of tooth-ache about you.” _“You lie! I have,” yelled the boy, with a fresh howl! The mother then took him to a dentist,

Durable Batteries. The editor of the Massachusetts Medical Journal writes to the Jerome Kidder Manufacturing Company, of 820 Broadway, New York, thus :

GENTLEMEN :- I have one of your tip batteries, which I have used for upwards of five years, and for the first time I find a repair needed. The platinum plate has given out. I believe that for range, regularity and smoothness of current, and therapeutic scope, your battery is unsurpassed, while for convenience it certainly has no equal. If I can insert the platinum plate myself please send it and I will remit promptly. Yours very truly,

THE NEW YORK PHARMACAL ASSOCIATION fond addrew to New York Pharmacal Associt on for copy of Medical Almanac containing valuable information

EXCERPTS.=

PHENACETINE:-Dr. DUJARDIN-BEAUMETZ, Paris.-" It is above all as an analgesic that Phenacetine outrivals its predecessors. While it is quite as powerful as antipyrin and acetanilid, it does not cause the pain in the stomach, or the scarlatinaform rash of the former; nor does it give rise to the cyanosis of the latter. However prolonged may be its administration —and we have given it for months in doses of 1.0 to 2.0 Gm. (15 to 30 grains) per day we have never observed any bad effect. We have used it for the relief of every form of pain (neuralgias, migraine, rheumatic pains, muscular rheumatism, acute articular rheumatism, the lightning pains of tabes, etc.) and always with the best results."

M. F. PRICE, M.D., President Southern California Medical Society.—"A patient says, “I have headache,' and I order Phenacetine with confidence, and always with a report of relief.”

Thos. W. AYERS, M.D., Jacksonville, Ala.—“As an antipyretic I have had nothing but the very best results from its use. As an antineuralgic there is no question, but it is superior to antipyrin. It is much more energetic in its action than either antipyrin or antifebrin.”

SULFONAL.-HUNTER MCGUIRE, M.D., Richmond, Va.—“ Has found it particularly valuable in insomnia following the use of alcohol.”

HENRY M. WETHERILL, JR., M.D., Ph.G., Philadelphia.—“The almost universal report of Sulfonal is that it has little or no effect upon the vast majority of insomnious subjects save the important one of increasing, prolonging the natural tendency to sleep; that its action is not narcotic but purely hypnotic.”

W.H. FLINT, M.D., New York. (Discussion before N. Y. State Medical Association.)—“He had used Sulfonal as being the most efficient or desirable of the new hypnotics. He had not yet seen a Sulfonal habit. There had been about eighty per cent. of successes in his cases."

JAMES STEWART, M.D., Montreal.—“Sulfonal produces no disagreeable secondary symptoms nor any unfavorable effects on the heart or circulation. Its action was by giving rest to the cells of the cerebral cortex and thereby causing sleep.”

Sulfonal-Bayer has been before the Medical Profession for some time, receiving its unqualified endorsement, but the use has been limited in many cases, owing to the hesitation of the practitioner in recommending so costly a remedy.

A substantial reduction in price having been made, it enables physicians to freely prescribe it whenever indicated, and brings it within the reach of all classes of patients.

SUCCUS ALTERANS

(MODADE.) SUCCUS ALTERANS is a purely vegetable compound of the preserved juices of

Stillingia Sylvatica, Lappa Minor, Phytolacca Decandra, Smilax Sarsaparilla and Xanthoxylum Carolinianum, as collected by Dr. Geo. W. McDade exclusively for

Eli Lilly & Co., and endorsed by Dr. J. MARION SIMs. SUCCUS ALTERANS continues to gain favor from its remarkable Alterative and

Tonic properties, eliminating specific poison from the blood and increasing the proportion of red corpuscles in anemic patients to a wonderful degree; is endorsed by the

medical profession and in use by many hospitals of note. SUCCUS ALTERANS in venereal

and cutaneous diseases is fast supplanting Mercury, the Iodides and Arsenic; and is a certain remedy for Mercurialization, Iodism and

the dreaded effects often following the use of Arsenic in skin diseases. SUCCUS ALTERANS is also strongly recommended for its Tonic and Alterative

effects in the many forms of scrofulous disease and in all cases where anemia is a factor. Such patients rapidly develop a good appetite, sleep soundly and gain flesh rapidly. Many cases are on record where patients increased ten to twenty

five pounds in weight in a few weeks. SUCCUS ALTERANS is giving satisfactory results in treatment of Chronic Rheu

matism, and can be used with confidence. SUCCUS ALTERANS may be given for any length of time, without injury to the

patient. SUCCUS ALTERANS is put up in pint round amber bottles and never in bulk.

Price, $2.00 per bottle. Send for copy of our Hand-Book of Pharmacy and Therapeutics. Useful

for reference and contains much valuable information.

PIL, APHRODISIACA

(LILLY.) Phosphorus and Nux Vomica, as is well known to the profession, act as powerful tonics to the nervous system, especially the spinal cord, and can be relied upon as possessing real aphrodisiac power. The Damiana used, is the genuine Turnera Aphrodisiaca. By our process for the manufacture of Phosphorus Pills, a thorough subdivision of phosphorus in the mass is obtained, and, with a coating perfectly protecting it from oxidation, there is nothing to be desired. It is necessary that the administration of this pill be continued from three to four weeks, or until the system is thoroughly under the influence of the remedy. It is indicated in mental overwork, sexual debility, impotency. It is decidedly beneficial in cases of nocturnal emissions, the result of excesses, mental apathy, or indifference, and in an enfeebled condition of the general system, with weakness or dull pain in the lumbo-sacral region. In diseases of the reproductive organs of the female, and especially of the uterus, it is one of our most valuable agents, acting as a uterine tonic, and gradually removing abnormal conditions, while at the same time, it imparts tone and vigor; hence, it is of value in Leucorrhea, Amenorrhea, Dysmenorrhea, and to remove the tendency to repeated miscarriages.
