It is our great pleasure to first offer an invaluable and entirely original device for the rapid and economical production of Formaldehyde directly from wood alcohol.
Several "Formaldehyde Lamps" have appeared both in this country and abroad, but have attained a limited use owing to their complicated construction, the necessity of expert attention and above all the small percentage of Formaldehyde produced from the wood alcohol consumed.
Our Moffatt Formaldehyde Generator
Is simplicity itself in its operation, producing above 83 per cent. of the theoretical quantity of Formaldehyde, thus solving a problem so earnestly studied and opening a grand field of use lne for what may be justly termed the greatest disinfecting agent ever discovered.
Send to us for a new pamphlet containing a history of Formaldehyde, an account of its chemical properties and its use as a disinfectant.
Formaldehyde destroys absolutely all pathogenic bacteria in whatever condition. With the Moffatt Generator rooms may be easily disinfected without injuring their contents. Sutures, bandages and dressings of all kinds may be readily sterilized.
Made of Solid Brass, nickel plated, has great capacity and is intended for disinfecting the ordinary sized room quickly; this being valuable where a large number of rooms are to be sterilized. Proper size for hospital wards, public halls, sleeping cars, etc. Full information may be secured from

For amputation above the knee for a nine inch stump.
The Inner Socket, seen outside the limb in cut, is made over a plaster cast of the stump, giving an extra fit, being held permanently upon the stump by elastic fastened to lacer above, and in act of walking moves up and down in the Outer Socket, bringing all the friction between the two sockets instead of between the stump and the socket as in the case of all singlesocket limbs. With our Double Slip Socket the most tender and sensitive stump can be fitted and limb worn with perfect ease and comfort.

Before and after surgical work this food makes an ideal diet. It
It is the most easily and completely assimilable food offered the physician, there being little or no waste matter, no tax upon or irritation to the digestive tract.
In preparing for and immediately after laparotomies, it is especially valuable, and in cases of nausea resulting from shock or any other cause, it will bring prompt relief and often prove the only nourishment that can be taken.
In addition to the powdered form for general use, we also supply a tablet form for cases in which tablets are more convenient or suitable.
Please send for samples of each, or if you attend the Railway Surgeon Meeting in Chicago May 4-7, we cordially invite you to apply for same at our stand.
