The Family Laxative

The ideal safe family laxative, known as "SYRUP OF
FIGS," is a product of the California Fig Syrup Co.,
and derives its laxative principles from senna, made
pleasant to the taste, and more acceptable to the
stomach, by being combined with pleasant aromatic
syrups and the juice of figs. It is recommended by
many of the most eminent physicians, and used by
millions of families with entire satisfaction. It has
gained its great reputation with the medical profes-
sion by reason of the acknowledged skill and care
exercised by the California Fig Syrup Co. in secur-
ing the laxative principles of the senna by methods
of its own, and presenting them in the best and most
convenient form The California Fig Syrup Co. has
special facilities for commanding the choicest qual-
ities of Alexandria senna, and its chemists devote
their entire attention to the manufacture of the one
product. The name "SYRUP OF FIGS" means to the
medical profession the "family laxative, manufac-
tured by the California Fig Syrup Co.," and the
name of the Company is a guarantee of the excel-
lence of its product. Informed of the above facts,
the careful physician will know how to prevent the
dispensing of worthless imitations when he recom-
mends or prescribes the original and genuine
"SYRUP OF FIGS." It is well known to physicians
that "SYRUP OF FIGS" is a simple, safe and reliable
laxative, which does not irritate or debilitate the
organs on which it acts, and, being pleasant to the
taste, it is specially adapted to ladies and children,
although generally applicable in all cases. Special
investigation of the profession invited. ::::::

puscles in the blood. These seem to indicate that the hemorrhagic process depends on an alteration in the blood. The results of treatment directed to improving its quality have been found by Abadie to be most satisfactory. He strongly recommends a glass of sulphuric lemonade; extract of cinchona, one gramme; and perchloride of iron, ten to twenty drops; to be taken daily. To favor absorption of the effusion he applies the artificial leech to the temple. Hemorrhages associated with choroidoretinitis are not to be confused with the above, and require a mercurial treatment.-British Med. Jour.

Pharyngeal Adenoids.

Dr. Eustace Smith (Lancet) says that naso-pharyngeal adenoid growths are common in infancy as well as in childhood, and may even be present at birth. At this early age it is uncommon for them to give rise to the ordinary symptoms of nasal obstructions. Such growths should always be suspected if the infant's nose be broad at the bridge and faintly dimpled on each side at the upper border of the inferior lateral cartilage, and especially if there be noticed any retraction in the inferior region of the thorax. Persistent snuffing in infants is no sign of syphilis in the absence of other symptoms, but rather of adenoids.-Buffalo Med. Jour.


Patients who are compelled to practice self-catheterism should be furnished with soft-rubber catheters of a size and shape of tip which would permit the easiest and least painful entrance into the bladder. It would usually be found that the soft-rubber coudée catheters

fulfilled these requirements. Even the most supple woven catheter would be found rigid for half an inch of its length, when compared with the soft-rubber instrument. The rubber coudée catheters had proved far more satisfactory than any others that were used in practice. These catheters were not only easy to pass, but were cheap, and were readily made sterile. The patient should provide twice as many catheters as were needed for use in the twentyfour hours. After boiling the number required for one day, they should be wrapped up in a sterile fabric. The writer had constructed a bamboo cane, in one end of which was a small cylindrical paraform box containing four catheters, and in the other end another case for the soiled catheters, and for the lubricant.-Med. Record.

Tobacco Heart.

Dr. Ed. H. Fravel, Poca, W. Va., tried Cactina Pillets in several cases of cardiac pain in tobacco heart, and relief was prompt and permanent.



Proto-carb. Iron (Blaud's Mass), 2 1-2 grs.
Ext. Cascara Sag., 1-2 gr.

Sulph. Strychnia, 1-120 gr.
Bichlor. Hydrarg., 1-160 gr.

These tablets will not constipate.

Physicians will recognize the value of the Ext. Cascara
in the above formula. The chief objection to all preparations
of Iron has been that they constipate; this is obviated by the
Ext. Cascara.

These tablets are so prepared that the Proto-carb. Iron
(which is the most readily taken up by the blood of any of
the Iron preparations) is freshly formed in the juices of the
stomach; in this way the danger of the Iron becoming
oxidized and inert by exposure to the air is avoided.
