SYRUPUS ROBORANS.—This preparation of syrup of hypophosphites is manufactured by Arthur Peter & Co., of Louisville, who claim its flavor and perfection as a pharmaceutical compound; that it is an open and fair formula ; that it is made accurately by that formula; that it is the cheapest to the trade, the physician, and the consumer of any syrup hypophosphites compound now on the market; that it is a perfectly stable syrup. This stability makes it readily miscible with liquid pepsin, U. S. P. in from 13 to equal quantities, Fowler solution in from three to five drops to the drachm, and with syrup iodide iron, thus enabling you to unite the hypophosphites as a basis with these important agents to suit special cases.

BUFFALO, N. Y., Sept. 27, 1886. Provident Chemical Works, St. Louis, Mo..-GENTLEMEN : Some time ago you very kindly sent me a box of your Crystaline Phosphate.

Very truly yours,

Scott & BowNE, manufacturing chemists of New York, make a specialty of producing an emulsion of cod liver oil with hypophosphites. Their great care in selecting the oil and in making the combination is amply proven by the high therapeutical value set upon the emulsion by the profession. It is no new remedy, but has been steadily growing in demand for a number of years. It is certainly very useful in restoring wasting tissue, and in cases of scrofulous children it acts almost as a specific. They also offer a Buckthorn Cordial, which is highly useful in the treatment of constipation.

The Committee of Arrangements of the Ninth International Medical Congress, at Washington, D.C., which will meet in that city in 1887, is divided, for active work, into the following sub-committees : Congressional Legislation, Finance, Printing, Reception, Entertainment, Transportation, and Place of Meeting for the Congress and its Sections. While this committee is composed of some of the ablest and most influential physicians of the District, a citizens' auxiliary committee has also been formed, to assist, on behalf of the “laity," in welcoming and entertaining the distinguished guests.

“What is mind ?

6. What is matter ?”
"Never mind.”

THE DOCTOR" is the title of a new bi-weekly journal, published and edited by Charles Welles, New York, as "a popular paper for physicians and their friends.” Another new journal is the Dental Review, published by W. T. Keener, of Chicago, Ill.; another, the Pittsburgh Medical Review.

THE AMPHITHEATRE is a monthly medical journal published in New York City. The medical students and the medical colleges of America are to be its particular source of solicitude.

THE “Antiseptic Shake" has become a well-recognized convention in the clinics of the city. The surgeon about to operate extends to his invited guest, not his hand, but his elbow, which is gently seized by the latter, a slight pendulum motion is made, the courtesies of the day exchanged, and then the quasi-anatomical relations cease. Thus it is shown that true courtesy is not inconsistent with micro-parasitical innocuousness.-N. Y. Med. Record.

The superiority of Lactopeptine over pepsine as a digestive agent is everywhere acknowledged, and is rapidiy succeeding it. From extended experience in the use of Lactopeptine, we unhesitatingly recommend it as a most valuable remedial agent in certain forms of dyspepsia, vomiting in pregnancy, and especially in cholera infantum.
