was taking an ounce a week. I come menced with 15 drop doses of the con, tinc. avena sativa.) every four hours, gradually increasing to 85 drops every two hour I gave her opium once in twenty-four hours for six days, diminishing each dose, the last dose being one grain. 1 saw her on the eighth day, she was feeling quite well and declared she had'nt the slightest desire for opium. I count this case cured. In pow treating one of over ten years with the habit, but have to use a much larger dose (of the avena). The case is now on the fourth day of treatment, and taking at present 70 drops (of avena) every two hours, and is doing splendidly. Will report result in the future.

Gentlemen :-Six years ago I wrote you in reference to the success I had met with in the use of yonr“CON, TINC. AVENA SATIVA." Now, after six years more experience with this remedy. I am prepared to say that in the treatment of Nervous Prostration (from whatever cause), in Sleeplessness, Chronic and Acute Alcobolism, and last (but far from least) in the treatment of those formerly addicted to the use of Morphia, I consider it a Nerve Tonic par excellence. I have used this in my practice for ten or twelve years, and, until I find something better, shall continue to do so. One thing I think the Profession sbould be cautioned in reference to, viz: the substitution of other preparations of Avena in place of yours. I always specify "Kei'h's," and have yet to be disappointed in the result. Wishing you continued success, I am, gentlemen,

Very truly yours,

-ANDThe only Cart made that is suitable for Physicians' use. TO PHYSICIANS: We desire to call your attention to the cut of popular vehicle for Physicians that has ever been made. Without much effort it has third and would not ride in anything else. It has the loose endshaft, which is Perry's Patent, and the only device ever discovered that positively counteracts all motion of the horse. It draws from the axle by long leaf springs that connect with the shafts in front where the shafts are attached to the steel frame that supports the body. The springs being very elastic,

relleve entirely all jolts and Jar over rough roads, make it comfortable and not tiresome to ride in all day long. This fact, the Physician has not been slow to discover.

Please send for descriptive circular, containing hundreds of testimonials, and learn nearest agent, or have your local dealer send for same. We prefer to sell through dealers who will guarantee to purcha-ers all representations we make or no sale.

The ordinary cheap carts on the market may be good for jogging purposes, or for breaking colts, but for business they are no good at all.

You have often noticed that many patients, after a course of typhoid fever, erysipelas, diphtheria and kindred diseases, undergo a long, tedious convalescence. For many weary weeks they sit around the house or drag their emaciated bodies feebly along. Their flame of life is so dim that it is easily puffed out by any slight indisposition or intercurrent malady that may chance to attack them, and hence we see so many cured cases become easy victims by the predisposition which their debility constitutes.

Now, what is the true condition in such a case as this?

Why, simply that in the febrile process immense hosts of the tissue cells have been consumed or carried away, and most of those remaining are worn out and only await a vigorous circulation to remove them and deposit healthy cells in their places.

In addition to the emaciation you notice that the tissues still left are flabby and apparently lifeless. The nutritive organs are so weakened that they are barely sufficient to maintain life without furnishing the required new material to carry on the process of repair. Thus the individual remains an easy prey to pathogenic influences which one in robust healih can successfully resist.

Can anything be done for such cases ?

But you would better leave them to the unassisted reparative powers of nature than to dose them with the irritant alleged "tonics” now so much in vogue. The organs of nutrition only want to be supplied with true cell and tissue food in an assimilable form.

This you will find in McArthur's Compound Syrup of the Hypophosphites of Lime and Soda. This is a CHEMICALLY Pure preparation, a quality so rare in Hypophosphite preparations. It is prepared in such a manner that the important ingredients go entirely to the rapid rebuilding of the tissues.

Give this to your convalescent patient and you will see a remarkable increase in flesh, strength and buoyancy of spirits. The convalescence will be greatly shortened, and in every way the Hypophosphites will prove to them to be a true Elixir of Life.

You can also make an enviable reputation for yourself by prescribing it in Phthisis and all Tubercular affections, Scrosula, Throat and Bronchial diseases, Nervous disorders and degenerations, and Fibroid Tumors.

Send for our pamphlet on “ The Curability and Treatment of Consumption " (free), and a full size bottle of McArthur's Syrup, free, if you will agree to pay express charges.

goes out of date.

1 RE you tired of carrying a bulky, heavy visiting list in your pocket constantly? RE you tired transterring your originai entries into secondary books? RE you tired of running the risk of losing what you have earned by keeping your accounts in signs?

THE MEDICAL WORLD VISITING LIST relieves you from all this. It consists of an elegant leather case and twelve removable sections (one for each month of the year). This case has a pocket for prescription blanks, an erasible tablet for pencil memoranda, and a place for tastening the visiting list section. Each section has forty-six pages ruled for monthly accounts, each date being printed, and space for name and address of patient, services for each separate day of the month and amount 'charged for cach day, monthly, total, credits and balance. Any section can be used for any month, or part of any month.

When a section is full it can be removed and a new one inserted; thus the list is never large nor heavy, yet its capacity is unlimited, as it can constantly be renewed.

Sufficient space is given to write each entry in words, thus avoiding the use of signs, which are not recognized by courts of law. To be legal, an account must be originally entered in words.

The monthly arrangements of accounts is a great convenience.

This list, together with its companion, "Ledger of Monthly Balances," (price 50 cents), makes a complete set of account books for a physician, and are the most convenient ever produced. PRICE OF LIST (Case and Twelve Removable Sections),
