FROM FRESH COCA LEAVES.

METCALF'S

COCA WINE

A PLEASANT TONIC AND INVIGORATOR.

[graphic]

COCA LEAVES have been in

use by the native Indians in South America from the earliest times as a remedy for every malady, from a simple

cut to neuralgia and headache; and while chewing it, they pass whole days in traveling or working without food, eating heartily in the evening without inconvenience, and passing the night in refreshing sleep.

Coca Leaves have been recommended by Ringer as valuable in Febrile Disorders, by restraining tissue metamorphosis, and for the same reason in Phthisis.

With decided anodyne and antispasmodic qualities, they have been employed in Typhus, Scorbutus, Gastralgia, Anæmia, Enteralgia, and to assist digestion.

Public Speakers, Singers and Actors have found Wine of Coca (METCALF's) to be a valuable tonic to the vocal cords, and also a sedative, allaying nervous fright without perceptible after effect.

It is agreeable to the taste, and can be prescribed for children or convalescents. Athletes, Pedestrians and Base Ball Players have found by practical experience that Sample sent to any physician

a steady course of Coca taken both before and after any trial of strength or endurance will impart energy to every movement, and prevent fatigue and waste from the system. Elderly people have found it a reliable aphrodisiac, superior to any other drug.

Dr. Willard H. Morse says of Coca, "Its greatest worth is as an antidote for alcoholismus and the opium habit," and for this treatment he recommends Fluid Extract of Coca in tablespoonful doses.

Dr. W. S. Searle, A. M., M. D., says of Coca, "In relation to a New Form of Nervous Disease: " "It certainly is not homœopathic, but it is still, however it may act, one of the most reliable remedies for the palliation and, perhaps, cure of this malady."

Wine of Coca is probably the most valuable Tonic in the Materia Medica. With stimulating and anodyne properties combined, it acts without debilitating.

Metcalf's Fluid Extract of Coca should be prescribed for alcoholismus or the cure of the opium habit, in tablespoonful doses.

Dose of Wine of Coca.-% to 1 wineglassful three times daily.

upon receipt of One Dollar.

RINGER'S RECENT VERDICT.

At the present moment there is more money being spent in advertising new Infant Foods into notice than ever before. A prominent Doctor who read PROF. RINGER'S RECENT TRIBUTE TO THE VALUE OF NESTLE'S FOOD, said:-"That's where Nestlé's Food has the pull. It possesses so much real merit."

For the benefit of the readers of this journal we reproduce verbatim Prof. Sydney Ringer's 83d article in his Hand Book of Therapeutics 11th Edition.

"I generally find it useful in all forms of Children's Diarrhoea to abstain from milk, and to give instead, barley water and veal broth, or chicken broth, or BEST OF ALL, NESTLE'S FOOD, WHICH I FIND THE BEST OF ALL FOOD, FOR CHILDREN WITH GREAT DELICACY OF STOMACH AND INTESTINES."

CLOSED-CELL FARADIC BATTERY.

This is a very convenient form of battery for a physician or family use. It gives three variations of the faradic current and is sufficiently strong for ordinary treatment.

The cell contains a solution of sal-ammoniac and water and is sealed so that the battery can be carried about or even turned bottom side up without danger of leakage.

To start the battery into action, it is only necessary to change the switch from one button to another.

The renewal of the solution and zinc, which is only required about once a year, is inexpensive.

Furnished in a polished mahogany case, with handles, cords and sponge-covered metallic discs.

This Battery, with a copy of "Electricity as a Medicine," by John Ives, M. D., will be sent to any address upon receipt of $10.00.

Remittances can be made by Post Office or Express Money Order.

OPINIONS OF THE AUTHORITIES

ON THE APPLICATION OF

PAPOID

(CARICA PAPAIA.)

IN DIPHTHERIA.

".

Dr. A. JACOBI, New York, before the Medical Society of New York, February 2d, 1886: Diphtheritic membranes are dissolved in a few hours-in a few cases after a day only. Temperatures of 104 and 105 degrees would sink to the normal standard after the removal of the membranes."

Prof. CRONER, (im Vereine für innere Medicin in Berlin) reports successful treatment of a boy eight years old with Papoid. A five per cent solution brushed upon the parts every hour caused the entire disappearance of the membranes in about seven hours and the reduction of the temperature to normal. Recovery was rapid.

FLATOW, at the same meeting, mentioned a similar case treated with equal results, using a five per cent solution.

Drs. FRAENTZEL and LEYDEN, at the same meeting, related similar successful cases.

Prof. OERTEL, in Respiratory Therapeutics (Ziemssen Handbuch der Allgemeinen Therapie, p. 1751)-"A large piece of diphtheritic membrane expectorated by a child suffering from diphtheria of the trachea was dissolved in a five per cent solution of Papoid in one hour's time."

KOHTS and ASCHE (Zeitschrift für Klinische Medicin, Vp. 558) "Diphtheritic membrane in the throat and nose as far as they can be reached are completely dissolved by a five per cent solution."

Dr. A. F. GREEN, Cleveland, Ohio: On the morning of Aug. 16th, I was called to treat Willie Taylor, son of W. D. Taylor, of the firm of Geo. Worthington & Co., who was suffering with malignant diphtheria. A large surface on the right side of his throat was covered with diphtheritic fungus. I applied Papoid to the child's throat about every 40 minutes for 18 hours, when the membrane was entirely removed. Thinking then, from the favorable symptoms, that the disease was abating, I applied the remedy at intervals of about three hours. About 36 hours after the fungus on the tight side had been dissolved, it appeared in large patches on the left. I again treate 1 the throat at short intervals, and met with the same success as before mentioned. After the sixth day the child made rapid and unimpeded progress to recovery. Yours, A. F. GREEN, M. D.

August 24th, 1887.-Pepsin was used with patient's brother, and child was lost. Dr. WILLARD H. MORSE, Westfield, N. J., has made an exhaustive study of Papoid, after carefully testing the article, reports:" Papoid is made from the melon tree fruit Carica Papaia. In my experience I have found that its ability for the conversion of Albumen into Pepton is nearly five times greater than the best pepsin.

It is antiseptic and hypnotic and acts in the presence of an alkali or an acid. It is more than a substitute for pepsin."
