INDICATIONS.- Acute and Chronic Catarrh of the Bladder. Brick Dust and Chalky Do

posits in the Urine, Gravel, etc. Acute and Chronic Bright's Disease, Lumbago, and in Acute and Chronic Rheumatism. PRESCRIBED and Endorsed by the Leading Physicians of the U.S. It is giving universalsatisfaction to the profession. It seems to be ALMOST A SPECIFIC for Diseases of the GenitoUrinary Organs.


Professor of Genito-Urinary Diseases in the Medical Department of the University of Tenn.,


No practitioner passes many days, or seldom many hours, without being called upon to prescribe for some real or imaginary disease of the kidneys. While such serious disorders as diabetes and Bright's disease, in which these organs are fatally involved, are occassionally met with, they are few as compared with the many minor affections, not only in the kidneys themselves, but on all parts of the genito-urinary tract. Catarrh of the kidneys, ureter, bladder or urethra, irritations and congestions of the various parts of the urinary apparatus, are as common as bad colds. What is more frequent than patients complaining of pain in the back, in the rigion of the kidneys, with or without a scant flow of urine, or a burning sensation in the neck of the bladder or urethra on avoiding urine, and numbers of other similar ailments. In all forms of functional derangements of these important excretory organs the administration of a gentle but effective djuretic generally affords relief. Where an analysis of

urine proves the absence of elements that would indicate serious organic lesions it is a safe and in fact a proper course, to use a remedy that will stimulate to gentle action the cells of the kidneys, thereby increasing tbe watery portions of the urine. Such a course will rarely fail to affect a

For this purpose there is nothing superior to buchu, juniper, acetate of potash, corn silk and digitalis. The action of many of this class of remedies, such as corn silk, juniper, eucalyptus, etc., have a more or less specific influence on bladder and urethral irritations and inflammations.

Some years since my attention was attracted to a remedy styled Wayne's Diuretic Elixir, which, upon examination, I found to be a combination of acetate of potash, juniper and buchu, prepared in such a manner as not to be unpleasant, but rather agreeable to the taste and accurate in its proportions. Being easier to prescribe and by far more pleasant to the patient than the same remedies freshly mixed in the drug store, I began to use it in all irritations of the kidneys, bladder, urethra and prostrate gland, and have found it to meet every indication. Now, when I desire a mild diuretic effect continued for some time, I rarely depart from this mixture. Prof. Deering J. Roberts, Surgeon to the State Prisop, has been nsing it largely of late at the hospital of that institution, and reports it periectly satisfactory. Numbers of others of my medical brethren, to whom I have suggested its use, have reported it, thoroughly satisfactory. Case after case taken from my own and from other record books, could be cited to show its satisfactory effects, but that is hardly necessary. And while I am not an advocate of the wholesale use of all the various preparations that are now crowded upon us, at the same time, after thoroughly testing this one for some years, I feel that it will not be amiss to present its virtues to the profession, Not for any new virtues that its ingredients may possess, for they have been understood for many years, but because of its careful preparation and pleasant taste, and thereby ready utility. From the very highly satisfactory results obtained by me for the past five years, I am quite sure its use will be attended with no disappointment or regret. EXTRACT FROM LETTER, DR. THEO. JASPER, 322 SOUTH SIXTH ST., COLUMBUS,

OHIO: COLUMBUS, O., January 21, 1886.-Wayne Elixir Company-Gentlemen: Regarding your most excellent preparation, “The Wayne's Diuretic and Alterative Elixir" I am happy to say that I have used it in my practice for over two years in hundreds of cases, and in every case I ased it it gave perfect satisfaction. The effect of its action can be perceived immediately, and in most cases only a small quantity, five or six ounces, was needed to effect a complete cure; it is, besides, not unpleasant to the taste, and is borne by the most delicate stomach. Truly and most respectfully yours,

S. S. WHARTON'S Emulsion of Pure Cod Liver Oil

With Hypophosphites of Lime and Soda.

This excellent preparation is now being prescribed and highly recommended by physicians in all parts of the country where it has been tried, and is ominently preferred to all other preparations or the plain Oil. The steadily growing demand is conclusive prcof of its therapeutic value and the high favor it is held by physicians generally. Its union is perfeet and compatible; so much so, the most delicate stomach can retain and digest it. It is a perfect nutritive chemical food and reconstructive. It is made with a view to being not only uniform in strength, but pure in quality, and unexcelled in its clinical value. Its curative properties are largely attributable to its stimulant, tonic, and nutritive qualities, whereby the various organic functions are recruited. The desirable results obtained in Pulmonary Troubles, Anæmia, General Debility, Scrofulous Habit, and Throat Affections, are remarkable. We also put up the plain Oil. Physicians preferring that will find ours perfectly reliable.


Berry, Demoville & Co., Wholesale Druggists,

NASHVILLE, TENN, We also manufacture a complete line of Medicated Syrups, Winos, and Elixirs, all guaranteed full strength.




Each teaspoonful is equal to two grains of Sulphate of Quinine. Children take it and never know it is medicine. Never produces sick stomach, and always produces the same result as the bitter quinine. In the manufacture of quinine there is left, after crystalizing the quinine, a dark colored substance known as Amorphous Quinine. We have by purifying the Amorphous Quinine obtained a pure alkaloid, the active principle of the Amorphous Quinine, which we have rendered tasteless, and which is equal to Sulphate of Quinine in every respect. It is tasteless, because it is insoluble in the mouth, but dissolves readily in the acids of the stomach We use no Tannin; no Yuba Santa, which contains a large per cent. of Tannin,


(LYON'S.) FOR ADULTS, WHO DISLIKE TO TAKE CAPSULES, Each teaspoonful is equal to four grains of quinine. All capsules and coated pills are more or less insoluble, producing an unpleasant feeling in the stomach The purified Amorphous Quinine is insoluble in the mouth, but dissolves readily in the acids of the stomach.

It never produces sick stomach. Physicians can make tasteless tonics for children and ladies by combining with the Febriline, Iron by Hydrogen, Carbonate of Iron or Iodide of Potash. It would be folly in us to spend money in advertising a preparation of this kind that would prove a failure in the hands of the medical profession. We have thoroughly tested it, and know you will find it reliable in every respect. It is put up in one ounce, eight ounce, and sixteen ounce bottles, and we hope you will have your druggist to order with his drugs from any wholesale druggist a small quantity, and test it in your practice. For several years we have been putting up goods for the wholesale drug trade under the name of “ Lyon & Co., Boston,', but as the Southern people are realizing the fact that valuable discoveries can be made and reliable goods manufactured outside of Detroit, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, we will in the future put them up under our own name.

No instrument has ever been placed before the Medical Profession which has given such uniVersal satisfaction.

Every indication of uterine displacements is met by this combination; Prolapsus, Anteversion, Retroversion, and Flexions, are overcome by this instrument, when others fail. This is proven by the fact that since its introduction to the profession it has come into more general use than all other instruments combined.

UNION OF EXTERNAL AND INTERNAL SUPPORT –The abdomen is held up by the broad morocco leather belt with concave front and elastic straps to buckle around the hips. The Uterine Support is a cup and stem made of bighly polished hard rubber, very light and durable, shaped to fit the neck of the womb, with openings for the secretions to pass out, as shown by the cuts. Cups are made with extended lips to correct flexions and versions of the womb.

ADAPTABILITY TO VARYING POSITIONS OF THE BODY.-The cup and stem are suspended from the belt by two soft elastic Rubber Tubes, which are fastened to the front of the belt by simple loops, pass down and through the stem of the cup to the back of the belt. Those soft rubber tubes being elastic, adapt themselves to all the varying positions of the body and perform the service of the ligaments of the womb.

SELF-ADJUSTING - One of the many reasons which recommend this Supporter to the physician is that it is self-adjusting The physician, after applying it, need bave no fear that he will be called in haste to remove or readjust it (as is often the case with rings and variout pessaries held in position by pressure against the vaginal wall), as the patient can remove it as will, then replace it without assistance

It can be worn at all times, will not interfere with nature's necessities, will not corrode, and is lighter than metal. It will answer for all cases of Anteversion, Retroversion, or any Flexion of the Womb, and is used by the leading physicians with unfailing success even in the most difficult cases,

Our Reduced Price to Physicians is $5 Each. Instruments sent by mail at our risk on receipt of price, or we can send by express, C. 0. D. and collect return express on the money:.

CAUTION. - We call particular attention of physicians to the fact that unscrupulous parties are manufacturlng a worthless imitation of this Supporter, and some dishonest dealers, for the sake of gain, are trying to sell them, khowing they are deceiving both physician and patient.

Persons receiving a supporter will find, if it is genuine, the directions pasted in the cover of the box, with the head-line" DR, L. D. MCINTOSH'S NATURAL UTERINE SUPPORTER”; a cut on the right showing the Supporter, on the left its application, also the fac simile signature of Dr. L. D. McIntosh. Each pad of the abdominal belt is stamped in gilt letters, " Dr. McIntosh's Natural Uterine Supporter Co, Chicago, Ill Each box also contains our pamphlet on “Misplacements of the Womb,” and an extra pair of rubber tubes.
