As a

Successful.-I will unhesitatingly say that I consider Peacock's Bromides much superior to the ordinary bromides, and the Chionia I believe to be an extremley successful preparation or a very valuable therapeutic agent. I have used both with excellent success.

John J. Shaw, M. D.,

Plymouth, Mass. Dr. I, B. Gilbert, of Philadelphia, writing for Medical Summary for June says: “I consider Sanmetto as a remedy for prostate derangements eminently useful. After two years use of it in my practice I have become very favorably impressed as to its merits. Its action upon the prostate gland comes nearer a specific than any other remedy with which I am familiar; it relieves cases of irritable bladder and difficult micturition in old men so as to make life much more comfortable. I am now using it in gonorrhea after the inflamatory stage has passed, with good results."

Rubber-Tissue Gloves for Protecting the Hands During Operations, etc.-Dr. T. S. K. Morton called the attention of the surgicial section of the College of Physicians to thin rubber gloves, which have been in the market for some time and are coming into use for general surgical purposes and for handling strong solutions. "I have found these rubber-tissue gloves extremely useful in handling offensive cases. With them it becomes a pleasure to make rectal examinations, because the skin of the hands does not become saturated with fetor, and it is wonderful how many more examinations one makes. Also in handling strong solutions, or even in operating upon septic cases they have an excellent field. The rubber is so very thin that it interferes very little with the tactile sense. rule, they go on with greater ease and come off readily. The dealer said he was not sure that they would last very long in handling instruments, but thus far I have used them considerably, and they are still practically in perfect order. But if they could be used only a few times, the price, $2.50, with 40 per cent discount to hospitals, is not excessive. I think them of great value when handling morbid growths or making post-mortems, where it is possible to be inoculated. They bear steam sterilization and soaking in strong solution of carbolic acid or bichloride."Times and Register.

Aristol in Operations for Appendicitis. There has been a tendency of late to avoid the use of chemical antisepties in the peritoneal cavity in laparotomy

Some operators discountenance even irrigation with sterilized water and confine themselves to dry sponging. In cases where extensive adhesions are, however, present, there is great danger that the separated peritoneal surfaces may reunite and secondary adhesions again be formed, necessitatins a subsequent operation. It is therefore highly desirable to interpose between the separated peritoneal surfaces an adhesive and innocuous antiseptic which will form a film with exudates and act as an obstacle to adhesions until the danger of their formation is past. In operations for appendicitis it is quite common to encounter numerous adhesions which after separation are apt to reunite unless proper preventive measures are adopted. Dr. Robert T. Morris, Medical News, April 7, 1894, in an interesting clinical lecture at the New York Post Graduate School on "The-Inch-and-a-HalfIncision in Appendicitis," highly extols Aristol for that purpose after an experience of three years with that substance. His remarks on this are as follows: “The large ragged portion of cecum that was involved in adhesions in this case to-day is covered thickly with Aristol, and after waiting a full minute to allow a lymphcoagulum to form with part of the Aristol, the surplus powder is blown away. Aristol used in this way prevents re-union of adhesions. It is one of the most practical of resources. I have separated oid adhesions a great many times in former patients whose peritoneal surfaces had been injured by the routine technique of the day, and have relieved them completely with the aristol film." The simplicity and safety of Dr. Morris' method and the success attending its employment in his practice warrant its general adoption in abdominal surgery.

Owing to the great diastasic strength of Maltine, there will be found in a dose of “Maltine with Coca Wine" (notwithstanding that it contains only 40"6 of Maltine), diastase enough to convert' more starch than can be converted by a dose of any unattenuated extract of malt now made, whether dry or semi-liquid. It should be borne in mind that the employment of wheat and oats, in addition to malted barley in its preparation, has raised Maltine far above the level of a mere extract of malt, and has placed it, in the almost unanimous estimation of the medical profession, in the front rank of food products as well as digestive agents.

We will send to any physician, who will pay expressage, an eight-ounce bottle of Maltine with Coca Wine" and an eight-ounce bottle of any other preparation selected from our list.
