Groves-certainly one of the greatest minds that ever adorced the medical profession-gives in his lectures on the mortality which La Grippe produced in its visitation to Dublin in his life time, by giving the number of burial permits which were obtained in two winters. We hear much of the mortality of that affection now, but if we will take the pains to examine statistics like the above from Groves, we shall find that epidemics in the last few years have been attended with no such mortality as it was in Groves' time. In several of iis visitations to London the mortality has been very large indeed; and we attribute the change in favor of the present greater amount of recoveries to the improvement in the treatment of this time and the one generally employed then. Blood-letting and severe purgation was then frequently, in fact, constantly resorted to, and this caused many deaths. In the treatment of La Grippe it is now commonly thought to be the best course only to employ those remedies which tranquilize the system. By giving the patient an agent which will at once overcome the headache and the pains which generally are very severe in all parts of the body, we find that Salfene is now quite popular. This remedy is a general anti-neuralgic and anodyne, and it does not produce cardiac disturbance or depression, and at the same time it leaves no unpleasant aftereffects, as is the case with many drugs of an anodyne character. Salfene is best given in tablet form. The tablets are put in 5 grs. weigbt. At the incipiency of an attack of La Grippe, the patient should be given a 5-grain tablet, and one every two or three hours thereafter, until the patient bas ceased to bave pains and headaches and goes to sleep. There exists no indication for other drugs beyond Salfene in uncomplicated cases of La Grippe, and this course persisted for sixteen to twentyfour hours rarely fails to bring about a cessation of the attack.

products. It has been used in the relief of rheumatism and neuralgic pains, and in the treatment of the sequelæ
of alcoholic excess. AMMONOL is also prepared in the form of salicylate, bromide, and lithiate. The pres.
ence of Ammonia, in a more or less free state, gives it additional properties as an expectorant, diuretic, and
corrective of hyperacidity.-London Lancet.

The Stimulant

is one of the derivatives of Coal-tar, and differs from the numerous similar products in that it contains Ammonia in active
form

as a result of this, AMMONOL possesses marked stimulating and expectorant properties. The well-known
cardiac depression induced by other Antipyretics has frequently prohibited their use in otherwise suitable cases. The
introduction of a similar drug, possessed of stimulating properties, is an event of much importance. AMMONOL
possesses marked anti-neuralgic properties, and it is claimed to be especially useful in cases of dysmenorrhoea. --The.
