given with this instrument. When it is properly adjusted and put in operation, and a button given several blows with the finger, much in the same manner as in striking the keys of a piano, a series of rapid inflations of the tympanic cavities, vibratory in character, are produced which practically acts as a medicated massage, not only to the middle ear, but also to the nasal cavities and connecting sinuses. By this means a new field is opened in the treatment of numerous cases in which there are adhesions, contractions and ankyloses within the tympanic cavities. Vibration is produced from within instead of from without, and tends to the expansive rather than to the compression of the ear drums. The general offices of the company are at Battle Creek, Mich., as is above stated, but they have branch offices at Philadelphia, Fresno, Cal., Toronto and London, England.

The products of this house are well known, as they have been extensively advertised, and their merits. carry with them wide popularity. The company conforms strictly to the principles of the profession and their products are what they are represented to be. The exhibit at this convention, which is in charge of Dr. F. C. Walsh and Dr. A. W. Latimer, contains samples of "Dioviburnia," which is a pleasant palatable uterine tonic and sedative; "Sennine," an antiseptic powder of phenol and C. P. boracic acid, non-irritant, odorless and a powerful germicide; "Neurosine," a safe, prompt and certain hynotic, without chloral, and "Palpebrine," which, as indicated by the name,

Among the exhibits of artificial limbs, that of J. F. Rowley of Chicago was prominent. Mr. Rowley is the inventor of the celebrated wax socket artificial leg with sponge rubber feet. With these two devices he has made

Frank & Kratz Mueller of Chicago occupy a large space with their stock of surgical instruments. The enterprising young firm is represented by Mr. Frank, Mr. Kersten and Mr. Anderson, and their stock is most complete. They are all practical workmen, having worked in all departments of the business, and when establishing themselves here got the agency for the goods of H. Windley of Berlin and Luër Wülfing of Paris. They are showing many novelties, such as all metal and all glass syringes-instruments which are easily sterilized; the new intubation set of French make; new bone and trephining sets,

A decidedly bookish display is that of the W. T. Keener Company of Chicago. Many physicians do not know that this concern has
at any age. In this foot the sole is made of sponge rubber and the top of aluminum, a combination which gives both elacticity and lightness. Much has been said of ball bearings since the advantage of that kind of joint has become known. Mr. Lyons has made a ball-bearing knee-joint that is absolutely noiseless. The pneumatic cushion gives the wearer of an aluminum pneumatic foot a springy, elastic step, thus enabling him to walk longer and with greater comfort. There are two young men at this exhibit wearing the Lyons legs. One shows a single and the other a double amputation.
EXHIBIT OF THE PHENIQUE CHEMICAL CO. exhibit consists of the various and well-known antiseptics of their manufacture: Camphophenique (signed), a non-irritating antiseptic of high germicidal power; campho-phenique powder, a standard dry antiseptic dressing and most efficient substitute for iodoform; chloro-phenique, an antiseptic, antizymotic, non-toxic solution devoid of all irritating qualities; campho-phenique soap, a preparation containing 20 per cent of campho-phenique. They are also placing before the profession campho-phenique gauze. This is said to be invaluable in packing all suppurating cavities and also for arresting hemorrhage from wounds of important organs, like the liver and kidney. The gauze is packed in seal glass jars and each jar contains five yards. The Phenique Chemical Company are makers of a large line of medical supplies, but are making a specialty of antiseptics.
The Betz arm and leg hot air bath is another interesting thing which is to be seen in the exhibit hall. The exhibit leaves nothing to be desired but the leg or arm to make the show complete. Mr. I.
