MESSRS. B. KEITH & CO.,
Gentlemen:-The con. tinc. avena sativa has been more successful in the treatment of the opium habit than anything I have ever tried, and I have tried various other remedies, among them the advertised nostrums. J. C. HALLOWAY, M. D.
MESSRS. B. KEITH & CO.,
Gentlemen:-G. M., aged 33 years, Merchant, had circumscribed peritonitis and thickening for some time. On account of pain and tenderness, his physician prescribed morphine in small doses, but he used it afterwards, of his own accord, until the habit was established. He tried hard to break off, but he would always be taken with great prostration and irritation of the stomach. vomit everything he took and would get down, and finally in about thirty-six hours would take morphine again, and in a short time feel all right. While under its influence he commenced to take whisky and beer to keep from the morphine. He also tried different doctors, but all the same. When I was consulted he would take stimulants and then increase the morphine to keep off big head (as he called it), taking one drachm of morphine every two days. He was miserable, and when trying to quit it said if the suffering and agony of hell was as bad he wanted to steer clear of the place. I tried valerian, and nearly all nerve tonics and nerve stimulants, and to diminish the dose of morphine, but all did no good. I then told him of the avena sativa about which I had read, and he said if he could quit without so much suffering he would, if not, he could not bear the agony, and would take it and die as soon as possible. I obtained the avena and prescribed it in fifteen drop doses whenever he felt the need of morphine which was four times a day; and or two nights I gave him about a one-fourth grain of morphia, when he said he could do without it he did not suffer any more. Thus he left off taking morphine, and has never taken another dose of it. The first night without morphine he slept reasonably well, and each succeeding night better, until five nights, when he slept well; then I gave him only three doses of the avena for three days, then two doses for three days, then only one dose in the evening for one week. All this time he rested very well, said his suffering was nothing to what he had expected, and that any one could go through it with half grit. [His own language.] Since then he has taken neither avena nor morphine, and is now well and has no desire for any stimulant, and says that "he would not have the habit for the world." He has gained thirty pounds, namely, he has now his original weight. He never was an intemperate man until the morphine was prescribed for him by a physician, through which he was ruined, losing nearly all his property and a great deal of self-respect. He had never been without morphine for more than thirtysix to forty hours since he had contracted the habit, namely, during three years.

SYR. HYPOPHOS. CO., FELLOWS
Contains the Essential Elements of the Animal Organization-Potash and Lime;
and the Vitalizing Constituent-Phosphorus; the whole combined in the form of Syrup with a Slightly Alkaline Reaction.
£t Differs in its Effects from all Analogous Preparations; and it possesses the in portant properties of being pleasant to the taste, easily borne by the stomach, and harmless under prolonged use.
It has Gained a Wide Reputation, particularly in the treatment of Pulmonary Tuber culosis, Chronic Bronchitis, and other affections of the respiratory organs. It has also been employed with much success in various nervous and debilitating diseases. Ets Curative Power is largely attributable to its stimulant, tonic, and nutritive prop
erties, by means of which the energy of the system is recruited.
Ets Action is Prompt; it stimulates the appetite and the digestion, it promotes assimilation, and it enters directly into the circulation with the food products.
The prescribed dose produces a feeling of buoyancy, and removes depression and melan
choly; hence the preparation is of great value in the treatment of mental and nervous affections. From the fact, also, that it exerts a double tonic influence, and induces a healthy flow of the secretions, its use is indicated in a wide range of diseases.
The success of Fellows' Syrup of Hypophosphites has tempted certain persons to offer imitations of it for sale. Mr. Fellows, who has examined samples of sevaral of these, finds that no two of them are identical, and that all of them differ from the original in composition, in freedom from acid reaodion, in susceptibility to the effects of oxygen when exposed to light or heat, in the property of retaining the strychnine in solution, and in the medicinal effects.
As these cheap and inefficient substitutes are frequently dispensed instead of the renuine preparation, physicians are earnestly requested, when prescribing the Syrup, so write "Syr. Hypophos. Fellows."
As a further precaution, it is advisable that the Syrup should be ordered in the riginal bottles; the distinguishing marks which the bottles (and the wrappers sur Founding them) bear, can then be examined, and the genuineness or otherwise-of
contents thereby proved.
