In ENTERO-COLITIS, and other Inflammations of the abdominal and pelvic viscera, Antiphlogistine proves a satisfactory adjuvant to treatment, as it produces a depletion of the enteric and peritoneal vessels, stimulates the reflexes and muscular rigidity.
In SPRAINS and WRENCHES, the stretching or tearing of the ligaments, contusion of the synovial membrane and damage to vessels and nerves are best controlled by Antiphlogistine, which distinctly aids in the reconstruction of the part. The absorption of the liquid exudate from the swollen tissues and the free circulation of blood in the seat of the injury greatly hastens the process of repair.

THE COMMONER SYMPTOMS OF EYE
BY JOHN R. NEWCOMB, M. D., INDIANAPOLIS.
The subject of eye strain has, in the past decade, received a very considerable amount of attention from ophthalmologists and general practitioners have, in varying degree, learned the significance of the widely distributed cycles of symptoms produced by it. The importance of this subject cannot be overestimated and a frequent repetition of the diagnostic points seems warrantable. Among Dr. Gould's excellent writings on the subject of Asthenopia, or eye strain, he says: "The eye, as in no other sense organ, is the conditio sine qua non of motility and development of all the higher organs, the retina being essentially brain substance, and every activity of the body depends upon precedent and governing vision. Intellect itself is fundamentally and initially visual: the brain comes out to see." The raison d'etre of this article is but to bring out again the commoner symptoms, so often unrecognized until through their continuance severe pathologic changes have been wrought in the eye.
Asthenopia or eye strain, as it is commonly known, is universal. It is a product of civilization, often beginning in our kindergartens, assiduously following throughout school life and serving as a handicap in business and professional activities. The American people have become a bespectacled race due to the fact that the early
been disregarded as a result of which there have occurred actual alterations in the mechanical details of the visual apparatus, and the patients have been forced to don spectacles, which at best. are but ocular crutches. The effects of abnormal visual activity or of extraocular muscle imbalance on both physical and intellectual development present in themselves a pitiable plea for the early recognition and proper treatment of the ocular deficiency.
The symptom groupings of Asthenopia are wide spread, the causes are many and without entering into detailed classification, let us consider only the more important local and general subjective and objective symptoms. It will serve the purposes of this article to consider asthenopia under two general heads. That form of eye strain dependent upon Ametropia, or abnormal refractive power of the eye. which includes Hypermetropia, or far sight, Myopia, near sight, and Astigmatism; under the second head we will consider that form of eye strain brought about by a condition of Heterophoria, or abnormalities, functional or idiopathic of ocular muscle balance.
Those symptoms not affecting the eye structures proper are readily accounted for by the anatomy of the eye and its correlative structures. For example-in the cerebral sight center in the occipital cortex we find the embryonal and anatomical counterparts of the retinal fields and with the intimate, intricate vascularization and innervation it is obvious that any faulty sensory acts of the eyes continued over a period of time will result in functional and organic disorder. The connection of the motor and sensory portions of the eyes with the several intracranial
