UPJOHN'S IDEAL-COATED PILLS.

A RATIONAL IDEA. We are exclusive manufacturers of a line of Pills and Granules, most of which are practically encapsuled powders. The more popular formulæ usually prescribed in pill form, by the physician, being made into an elegant pill without excipient, and with only coating sufficient to cover the taste. QUININE PILLS A SPECIALTY. PRICES LOW.

OF INTEREST TO PHYSICIANS.-We furnish an elegant pocket-case containing twelve (12) bottles filled with granules (150 in each) for $2.25, but little more than the cost of the case and less than the value of the granules. The physicians name will be printed on the case, in gold. This offer is to induce physicians to try our goods, knowing when once started they will continue their use.

"Crystal Pepsin

Philadelphia

Special Notice to Physicians

Physicians desirous of obtaining the genuine article, when prescribing Scale Pepsin or "Cryst." Pepsin, will not alone lend their aid and encouragement to the inventor, but will benefit themselves and patients as well by simply prescribing this Pepsin thus: "Jensen's Pepsin," drawing a heavy line under the name "Jensen."

The profession generally takes it for granted that druggists are well aware that the physicians never intended to prescribe the imitations of preparations of established merits, which are brought to light solely through the knowledge and technicalities of the inventor or originator, acquired by Imitations protracted study and experiments. have never yet been known to supersede the article imitated, but furnish most convincing testimony to the worth of the article counterfeited. I am continually improving this valuable preparation. Be

sides its enormous digestive strength, it possesses a keeping quality not before found in any Pepsin preparation, owing to its being of a brittle, scaly texture, reduced to the shape of small granular fragments, it is perfectly soluble and pulverizes easily. It contains no foreign matter like preparations of other make, as Pepsin Manufacturers, heretofore, could not accomplish this without adding large quantities of either starch or sugar of milk.

Physicians who have not yet tried this preparation, or who have been imposed upon, will meet with gratifying results by simply prescribing this Pepsin, thus: "Jensen's Pepsin," as it will prevent substitutions.

Samples promptly forwarded, post paid.

Faithfully,

HYDRONAPHTHOL!

Antiseptic, Disinfectant, Germicide and Preservative.

This valuable derivative of Coal Tar is no longer an experiment but has fairly won a permanent place high up in the list of modern Antiseptics. After severest tests and experiments in both Hospital and Private Practice it has been accorded a place second only to Mercuric Bichloride in point of Germicidal power, and being non-poifonous and non-corrosive it is preferable to that well known agent for all the purposes or which it is recommended. HYDRONAPHTHOL is free from the odor and escharotic properties of Carbolic Acid and other phenols, hence it is a pleasant and valuable Internal Antiseptic. Therefore, aside from its value as a general Antiseptic, Disinfectant, Germicide and Preservative it is being used with great satisfaction as an internal remedy in Cancer of the Stomach, Chronic Dyspepsia, Gastritis, Typhoid Fever and other diseases of the Alimentary Canal. Also in Eneuresis, Cystitis, Rheumatism and Gout. As a local application Dr. C. W. Allen of N. Y., and other Dermatologists of note have found HYDRONAPHTHOL superior to all other remedies in the treatment of Ulcers, Eczema, Scabies, Impetigo, Pruritus, Pityriasis Capitis, Alopecia, Favus and other skin diseases. It also preserves Anatomical and Pathological specimens in their natural condition, preventing shrinkage or decay. HYDRONAPHTHOL is freely soluble in hot water, Alcohol, Benzine and the fixed

oils.

We supply it in crude form or incorporated in our Absorbent Cotton, gauze, jute, lint or any dressing that can be rendered absorbent. We also prepare a rubber dermatological plaster containing 20 per cent HYDRONAPHTHOL, as well as a toilet and a medicinal soap containing one per cent and five per cent respectively of the drug. A book fully descriptive of HYDRONAPHTHOL mailed free to physicians.

Artificial Legs Arms

WITH RUBBER FEET AND HANDS.

[graphic]

MARKS' PATENTS.

[graphic]

The engraving is from an instantaneous photograph of a man ascending a ladder. He has two artificial legs substituting his natural ones, which were crushed by a railroad accident and subsequently amputated. With his rubber feet he is able to ascend or descend a ladder, balance himself on the rungs, and have his hands at liberty. He can earn a good day's wages at the bench. He can walk and mingle with persons without betraying his loss; in fact, he is restored to his former self for all practical purposes.

With the old methods of complicated ankle-joints an undertaking of this kind would be at the peril of the wearer, but with the rubber feet he can venture into all sorts of operations with safety.

Over eight thousand in practical use, scattered in all parts of the world. Many of these have been made from measurements without the presence of the wearer.
