THE EMPIRE ELASTIC BANDAGE
SPECIALLY ADAPTED FOR VARICOSE VEINS
We invite the attention of the Medical and Surgical Pro-
fession to the various merits combined in our Bandages:

1st. ITS POROSITY-the greatest in the "Empire." It never causes itching, rash, or ulceration under the bandage. 2d. ITS ELASTICITY, which will enable the surgeon or nurse to put it on at any required tension, and which will follow a swelling up and down, as the case may be, a feature unknown to any other bandage.

3d. ITS ABSORBENT PROPERTIES-greatest in the "Empire."

4th. ITS EASY APPLICATION to any part of the body, not being necessary to fold over, as with other bandages, as it follows itself with equal uniformity around any part of the abdomen.

5th. ITS SELF-HOLDING QUALITIES. No bother with pins, needles and thread, or string, so tiresome to surgeons, as simply tucking the end under the last fold insures

The Empire Abdominal Supporter

its permanent stay until its removal for purposes of cleanli- Abdominal

ness.

6th. The only Bandage that is SUPERIOR TO THE ELASTIC STOCKING for varicose veins.

Send $1 for 3 in. by 5 yards. Bandage on approval

Is Superior to all Others for the following reasons:

1st. It adopts itself to every movement of the body, giving strong and even support.

2d. It produces warmth without irritation or sweating, as it is perfectly ventilated. 3d. In pregnancy, corpulency, tumors, or other cases of abdomen, it supports weight of body from the backbone, relieving the sinews of their overwork.

4th. Its easy appliance (lace and drawn on over head or feet)

5th. It is cheap; durable. It can be washed when soiled, proper care being taken to cleanse it in lukewarm water and dry in the shade.

In ordering, give the measure of the abdomen.

New Organization.-Delinquents who owe doctors' bills must have a care or the next time they fall ill they must prescribe for themselves. The Physicians' Business Bureau "for social purposes and protection has been incorporated in Springfield with Drs. Henry F. Lewis, I. N. Danforth, N. S. Davis, and Christian Fenger as incorporators. The object of the bureau is to protect its members against people who don't pay up after treatment. At the end of a certain time, yet to be agreed upon, the delinquent's name is put on a list by the attending physician. This list will be passed around among the members, who will know what men are not to be trusted.--Railway Surgeon.

S. K. HOOPER, General Passenger and Ticket Agent.

To the Members of the American Pharmaceutical Association.

We have succeeded in arranging with the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad for this most desirable of Rocky Mountain tours at the extremely low rate named herein. In no other way can so much be seen or learned of this scenic State. The party must number not less than one hundred in order to secure the advantages of a special train.-otherwise, the trip must be made more inconveniently by regular trains. The Committee sincerely hope that enough of the members will signify their intention to go, so that the special train may be secured. We should be glad to hear from you at once of your intention to be one of the party. CHAS, M. FORD, Chairman of Committee on Transportation.
