Goldberg shows irrigation to be positively curative within one or two weeks in 90% of all cases presented. Complicated, unclean, and expensive appliances have heretofore prevented the adoption of this treatment by the profession. We now offer an Intravesical Irrigator manufactured and perfected by us after the ideas of Dr. Ferdinand C. Valentine, which so greatly simplifies this method as to render it at once most practical and desirable. It is a simple, cleanly, and highly effective apparatus. The irrigation treatment does away with all nauseous doses. It has the unqualified endorsement of the most eminent specialists in genito-urinary diseases. Price of stationary apparatus, $5.00; with adjustable percolator slide, $6.50. Descriptive circular, with reprint of Dr. Valentine's original article in New York "Medical Record," June 5th, 1897, on this subject, mailed free on application. For the same reason that you allow no substitution in your prescriptions, accept none but our original perfected irrigator.



Heredity and Degeneration. Dr. Crandall, in Arch. of Pediatrics, says: Heredity and degeneration are two totally different phenomena. One is an inheritance of tendencies or qualities possessed by the ancestor; the other is a loss of those qualities. The one produced a condition similar to that of the progenitor; the other, a condition dissimilar. The one is always transmitted; the other may be transmitted or acquired.

There is a condition of gradual, pro gressive degeneration requiring several generations for its complete course, which is entirely different from heredity.

There are elements of good heredity which are as potent as those of bad heredity. Health, vigor, and a sound constitution, are transmitted with as much certainty as are rheumatism, gout, and tuberculosis.

A tendency to certain diseases shown by one parent may be partially, or wholly, neutralized by a sound constitution in the other parent.

A tendency to a given disease possessed by both parents may sometimes

PATERSON, N. J., March 9, 1897. I frequently prescribe it, and am satisfied with its action.


ATTICA, IND., July, 1881. Please send me your pamphlet. I have been using your preparation with very great satisfaction for a number of years. W. C. COLE, M. D.

BENTON HARBOR, MICH., Oct. 8, 1880. Within the last six months I have been using your Syr. Comp. Hypophos. of Lime and Soda with very satisfactory results. I will use more, as just now I have a number of cases of tuberculosis in the incipient stage.

E. A. CLARK, M. D.

PENSACOLA, FLA., Jan. 25, 1887. I received your little pamphlet on the "Curability and Treatment of Phthisis," etc., in November last. It was very interesting, but I had anticipated you in having prescribed, long before, your beautiful syrup in many cases with effect. It is not only beautiful to the eye, but pleasant to the palate. It is certainly the best preparation of the Hypophosphites I have used, and undoubtedly a remedy of great value. Yours respectfully,

R. B. S. HARGIS, M. D.

BRIDGEPORT, CONN., Dec. 9, 1893. During the past year I have frequently prescribed McArthur's preparation, and so far am entirely satisfied with the results attained. The giving of a compound which contains a half dozen or more constituents, while producing, perhaps, at times, happy results, is not as satisfactory to me as a similar mixture which can be added to, if necessary, but which contains in itself the building-up qualities, indicated in certain conditions, calling for lime or soda salts. I shall continue to use it.


GREENSBOROUGH, GA., Aug. 27, 1881. I have been using your Syrup Hypophos. Comp. (Lime and Soda) for some time. Find it pleasant and very efficacious. W. B. ARRINGTON, M. D.

ORANGE, N. J., Dec. 9, 1887.

It gives me great pleasure to say that I have prescribed your syrup very often since my attention was called to it about a year and a half ago. I have never realized any cause for disappointment when using it. GEORGE BAYLES.

BUFFALO, N. Y., April 18, 1895. You have my permission to publish my testimonial, although I am very particular about lending my name; still, when I find anything that I know will aid poor sufferers, am always willing and anxious to make it known. Very truly yours,


PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 11, 1889. For some time past I have been prescribing exclusively your Syr. Hypophos. Comp., and with increasing satisfaction, as it is well borne by the stomach, and controls the cough, and to some extent the night sweats and wasting. Please send me your pamphlet on the treatment and curability of phthisis, as I have lent or given mine away.

Very truly yours,


Dr. McArthur's Syrup Hypophosphites, Chem. Pure, is rapidly gaining popularity among physicians everywhere, is now being thoroughly recognized as an effective remedy in the treatment of consumption, diseases of the chest, and wasting diseases of children. We do not hesitate in stating as our opinion that it is a chemically pure preparation, and that it contains great therapeutic efficacy.

Editor Medical Summary.




Acute Mania.

July 27th, 1897, I was called hurriedly to see Mrs. M. Married some ten months, aged twenty-three years, native of North Carolina, resident of State of Arkansas two years, very nervous and excitable temperament; health good until puberty, since which time patient has been more or less delicate. Suffered considerably from dysmenorrhea, and at times missed the catamenia. Had been complaining some since last period, which was suppressed. The day previous, July 26th, there had been some family disturbance which greatly excited patient.

I noticed on morning of above date, July 27th, a little strange action on part of patient, and in absence of husband and relatives, she left home, tearing clothes from her as she went. She was pursued by relatives and found after some two or three hours, almost entirely naked, scratched and torn by briars, barefooted, and feet bleeding. She did not know her friends, not even her father. She insisted continually that some one was trying to kill her.

On arrival found patient delirious, picking at bed clothes, suffering from violent headache, eyes staring, respiration a little hurried, pulse ninety, temperature 99.2° F. She had urinated freely, and recognized no one. Diagnosis, acute delirious mania.

Administered acetanilide three grains, caffeine citrate one grain, and repeated in half hour to relieve headache. Also, tincture belladonna and deodorized tincture of opium to quiet patient (this for want of something better), applied cold water to head, darkened room, and kept every thing quiet as possible. At evening visit found patient in same condition as at previous visit, but she was not quite so violent. Placed her on teaspoonful doses of Bromidia every two, four, or six hours, as needed, to allay restlessness, and produce sleep. Also gave:

R Hydrarg. Chlorid. Mit..

Pulv. Ext. Colocyn. Comp.
Pulv. Ipecac et Opii

10 grains. 10 grains.

5 grains.

M. ft. capsule No. 5. Sig. One capsule every hour until three are taken.

Favorable results followed, which greatly relieved relatives and friends, who thought her hopelessly insane.

July 28th, morning, found patient had rested well, and, in fact, had a good

night's sleep; recognized me for first time, although I had met her but once previously. Bowels had moved freely, and headache had almost left her. Called hurriedly in afternoon to again find her delirious. Respiration, twenty-eight; pulse, ninety-two; temperature, 99.5° F. House full of relatives and friends. I ordered out every one of them, except nurses, and administered Bromidia, which, in excitement, had been neglected. Patient began during the day to complain of soreness throughout entire body, which was attributed to violent exertion on previous day.

July 29th; continued improvement and clearing up of mind. Patient became satisfied that she was at home (she had previously thought herself to be away off somewhere). Towards nightfall she became delirious, when I again found her surrounded by a host of friends and relatives, and at this stage demanded that my instructions be implicitly followed, refusing to treat case further until house was cleared, and this I did by simply telling every one to leave. Again quieting patient as before, and relieving intense soreness and pain in lower part of bowels by turpentine stupes, prescribed a utero-ovarian sedative and anodyne three or four times daily, to be continued for eight days; discontinued a week, and begun as before..

Patient was not delirious after evening of July 29th, and appetite was poor for some days, though food and stimulants were taken in sufficient quantities when offered. Gradual improvement and regaining of strength, with perfect clearness of mind, continued until August 7th, when there was noticed some suffering from slight headache and vertigo, which was promptly relieved by a purgative. Then the patient was discharged as well.-DR. J. O. RUSH, in Medical Progress.

A Reliable Combination.

Dr. A. M. Selee, Melrose, Mass., says: I have found a pleasant, quiet result from Bromidia, given in smallest dose, and repeated as required. I feel that the preparation is one that may be depended upon where indicated.


A. A. MARKS, 701 Broadway, NY.
DEAR SIR-I received the pair of
artificial legs you made for me in due
time. They fitted perfectly, and I
have worn them constantly from the
start. I work in the store from six
o'clock in the morning until ten at
night. The limbs are lighter than I
expected, and appear to be very


A. A. MARKS, 701 Broad way, New York.

DEAR SIR:-My right leg was amputated four
inches above the knee. In 1886 1 purchased an
artificial leg of you. I am compelled to say after
ten years of constant use I am convinced that I
made no mistake in taking your patent. My occu-
pation is farming: I often saw wood all day; I
have picked one hundred pounds of cotton in a
day, and that was about as much as I was able to
pick before I lost my leg.


A. A. MARKS, 701 Broadway, N. Y.
DEAR SIR:-I have worn one of
your rubber feet for over fifteen
years with entire satisfaction. I am
a truckman and have to lift several
hundredweight at a time.


A. A. MARKS, 701 Broadway, New York.
DEAR SIR: I sell morning papers on the railroad
trains, frequently get on and off a train when in
motion. Very few of my friends know that I lost
one of my feet.

MR. ELEY, of Windham County, Conn., testifies
that he has no difficulty in working with other
laborers and earning laborer's wages, although he
wears an artificial arm; he uses the pickaxe the
same as others do with their natural arms.

Send for Mark's Treatise on Artificial Limbs, 544 pages and 800 illustrations. A complete work on the restoration of the maimed and crippled.



IF your dyspeptic patient is "out of sorts" with loss of appetite, give him two or more teaspoonfuls of SENG before each meal-an appetite will soon succeed his heretofore indifference to food.




An Invaluable Discovery in the Preparation of Opium.

It contains all the valuable medicinal properties of Opium in natural combination, to the exclusion of all its noxious, deleterious, useless principles upon which its bad effects depend. It possesses all the sedative, anodyne and antispasmodic powers of Opium: To produce sleep and composure; to relieve pain and irritation, nervous excitement and morbid irritability of body and mind; to allay convulsive and spasmodic actions, etc.; and being purified from all the noxious and deleterious elements, its operation is attended by no sickness of the stomach, no vomiting, no costiveness, no headache, nor any derangement of the constitution or general health. Hence its high superiority over Laudanum, Paregorio Black Drop, Denarcotized Laudanum, and every other Opiate preparation.


On account of its large sale, spurious articles are offered in bulk. The genuine is sold only in vials of about seven drachms, with yellow wrappers and signature of Jno. B. McMunn.
