ARISTOL, a combination of iodine and thymol. manufactured by the Farbenfabriken, formerly Friedr. Bayer & Co ́, Elberfeld, Germany, is a valuable, inodorous and non-toxic antiseptic remedy said to be superior to Iodoform, Iodole and SozoIodole.
ARISTOL is insoluble in water and glycerine, and very sparingly in alcohol, but is very easily soluble in ether and chloroform. The ether solution is precipitated by the addition of alcohol. ARISTOL is very freely soluble in fatty oils solution must be made in the cold, by stirring, as the use of heat causes a decomposition. For the same reason it is necessary to protect the body from light and keep it in opaque bottles. It very readily adheres to the skin, and can thus be used as à powder strewn over wounds and burns.
In cases of mycosis it also acts well, and more quickly than any other known remedy, and does not cause irritation, like so many drugs.
The effective use of ARISTOL in psoriasis is of great interest, as our Materia Medica has hitherto supplied us with no non-poisonous drug, save only chrysarobin, the use of which is associated with a deep skin coloration and conjunctivitis-drawbacks from which ARISTOL is absolutely free.
In case of lupus it is said to surpass even the best known remedies.
The value of ARISTOL can scarcely be over-estimated, as we have in it a drug possessing the good properties of Iodoform, but free from its toxic qualities. Its freedom, too, from any suspicious odor will be at once appreciated, both by the physician and his patient.
ARISTOL, prepared by the Farbenfabriken, formerly Friedr. Bayer & Co., Elberfeld, is supplied by us in ounces..
The value of Sulfonal in children's diseases.-DR. WILLIAM C. WILE sent a paper with this title to the American Medical Association, in which he stated that Sulfonal was the ideal hypnotic. It was without the bad effects of opium and the uncertainty of the bromides. It could be given in ten grain doses. It quieted reflex irritability. It did not constipate nor disturb the stomach. In one case in which a drachm was taken accidentally in ten-grain doses, there was a deep slumber lasting twenty four hours, slight fever, but a normal pulse and respiration.-Medical Record, New York.
DR. HENRY M. FIELD, in a paper presented to the American Medical Association, says: "Clinically observed, we recognize in Sulfonal a mild calmative, a slowly, but progressively acting hypnotic; it has no other action, and its operation is attended by no complications, near or remote. It is therefore a pure hypnotic, and, we submit, it is the only pure hypnotic we possess, up to date. -New England Medical Monthly.
Sulfonal-Bayer, prepared by the Farbenfabriken, formerly Friedr. Bayer & Co., Elberfeld, is supplied by us in ounces and in the form of Tablets of 5, 10 and 15 grains, put up in bottles of 10 and 100 tablets each.
We also offer Sulfonal-Bayer in the form of our soluble pills containing 5 grains each.
Phenacetine in Insomnia,—DR. F. PEYRE PORCHER, of Charleston, S. C., writes: "I desire to call special attention to the extreme value of Phenacetine as a remedy for insomnia. Given at night in a little water it is tasteless, innocuous, and induces sleep. I am confident. also, after repeated trials, that it is the best and most unobjectionable substitute for morphia. It causes sleep when, of course, pain is in abeyance, unless the pain be more than ordinary, and morphia hypodermically may then be required. The remedy may be repeated and the dose increased to seven or ten grains
'Suffering from chronic rheumatism of the forearm, I have tested it repeatedly in my own person, and have given it to many who have suffered from insomnia, or inability to sleep from any transient cause, fatigue, nervousness, excitement, etc., in either sex.” *** *—Medical Record, New York.
Phenacetine-Bayer, prepared by the Farbenfabriken, formerly Friedr. Bayer & Co., Elberfeld, is also in the form of our soluble pills and compressed tablets, containing two, four and five grains each. of any respectable apothecary.

It gratifies us to be able to announce that PHENACETINE, SULFONAL and SALOL have been incorporated into the new German Pharmacopoeia just issued, and have been proposed by the General Medical Council of Great Britain for introduction into the forthcoming Addendum to the British Pharmacopoeia. This action confirms and endorses our judgment in introducing these valuable remedies to the medical profession of the United States, and is a natural sequence of the favorable results experienced in their employment, and of the brilliant and conclusive testimony thereof, which had been so freely furnished by the most talented of the profession both in Europe and in the United States.

THE IMPORT OF DIFFERENCES IN THE PULSES. A difference in the radial pulses in a patient was long thought to be indicative of the existence of an aneurism of the aorta, or of one of the great vessels coming from it, but recent observations have shown that although the characters of the pulse, which have been regarded as pathognomonic of aneurisms, are not due to aneurisms, per se, in that they may not only be present without a concomitant aneurism, but may be absent when that condition exists. According to Ziemssen, the phenomena are due to a narrowing of the artery-innominate or sub

clavian, as the case may be--and while it may occur in aneurism, as the result of pressure, for example, it is most frequently the result of arteritis deformans, an atheromatous condition of arteries which often causes narrowing of the vessel. Ziemssen mentions 8 cases in which the pulse tracing had given rise to the suspicion of aneurism, but in which post-mortem examination revealed exclusively arterial lesions of this nature. Inasmuch as arterio-sclerosis of the aorta is much more common than aneurism, the subject is of importance in prognosis as well as in diagnosis, and should receive special attention.-Hospital Gazette.

of Amorphous Quinine.
FOR INFANTS AND CHILDREN.
Each Teaspoonful is equal to 2 Grains of Sulphate of Quinine.
CHILDREN TAKE IT AND NEVER KNOW IT IS MEDICINE.
Aledo, Parker County, Tex., Jan. 25, '88. DEAR SIRS:-I have used the Tasteless Syrup of Quinine sent me, and am highly pleased with it. Children and infants take it without any trouble, and it is as effective as the Sulphate of Quinine in controlling malaria. O. MORSE, M. D. Jeffersontown, Ky., Jan. 25, '88. SIRS: I used your Tasteless Quinine and find it all that is claimed for it. Children take it as readily as if it was simple syrup, and its effect is just as satisfactory as the quinine itself. I will use it always for children and sensitive stomachs of adults. S. Ñ. MARSHALL, M. D.
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 this Amorphous Quinine, which we have rendered tasteless, and which is equal to the Sulphate 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, and no Yerba Santa, which contains a large per cent. of Tannin. Potash.
Physicians can make Tasteless Tonics for Children and Ladies by combining with the Febriline, Iron By Hydrogen, Carbonate of Iron, or Iodide of A tasteless tonic can be made by adding Iron By Hydrogen, Carbonate of Iron or Iodide of Potash.

One Ounce Cinchonidia in.
