CAUTION. “In making the Fluid Extracts there is a great risk of getting a remedy less efficient than the original Indian decoction, because the manufacturer may use roots that have been kept too long, and lost some of their active principles; while the decoction used on the plantation was always made of fresh roots just gathered from the woods. In making the Fluid Extracts, we should, therefore, be careful to have them made from the roots recently gathered.”—[Extract from British Medical Journal.]

REMARKS The Wm. S. Merrell Chemical Co., of Cincinnati, offer the formula of Dr. McDade, prepared in accordance with the principles so strenuously held by them for more than thirty years, viz: that the volatile elements of many plants are dissipated by the drying process, thereby injuring, if not wholly destroying, their medicinal properties. The use of fresh drugs in all cases is therefore a necessity, in order to secure reliable preparations. Please specify “Dr. McDade's Prescription" (Merrell) in pint bottles.


The Perfection of Pharmaceutical skill. The Fluid Extracts of The Wm. S. Merrell Chemical Co. may be properly termed positive Medicinal Agents. Positive, not because they will invariably cure disease, but because their action is uniform and certain.

The Ovoid Sugar Coated Pills of The Wm. S. Merrell Chemical Co. challenge comparison as to solubility, purity of ingredients and coating, and beauty of finish.

Root, upon which depend the medicinal value of the drug, viz: BERBERINA-Of a bright yellow color, the salts of which are known in com

The most important remedial agent ever presented to the Profession for Dyspepsia, Vomiting in Pregnancy, Cholera Infantum, Constipation, and all Diseases arising from imperfect


LACTOPEPTINprecisely represents in composition the natural digestive juices of the Stomach, Pancreas and Salivary Qlands, and will, therefore, readily dissolve all foods necessary to tho recuperation of the human organism.


We regret that we are compelled to caution the profession in prescribing Lactopeptine, but very careful investigation has proven to us clearly the necessity of it.

Substitution of cheap and worthless compounds are being made in many cases where Lactopeptine is prescribed.

Lactopeptine is always UNIFORM, and its effects are SPECIFIC, and no one has ever been able to imitate its digestive value. If you do not obtain positive results when you prescribe Lactopeptine, you can be sure that some substitution has been made, and in such cases it may be necessary for the physician to prescribe Lactopeptine in the original ounce package to insure certainty of obtaining the genuine article. We can confidently make this assertion knowing the scrupulous uniformity in digestive value of every ounce of Lactopeptine.

Lactopeptine has always been kept strictly in the hands of the Medical Profession, never having been admitted in any publications but Medical Journals. It is prescribed by the most intelligent and educated physicians in all parts of the world, and there are but few physicians who have ever used Lactopeptine that will not agree with the late Prof. L. P. Yandell, when he says : Lactopeptine is one of the certainties in medicine, and in this respect ranks with Quinine."

In the various forms of Dyspepsia, in Vomiting in Pregnancy, and in Mal-nutrition of children, there is no known remedy so positive in results.

It produces refresbing sleep, and is excee tingly valuable in slooplessness, nerv usness, neuralgia, headache, conyulsions, colics, etu, and will relievo when opiates fail. Unlike preparations of opium, it does not lock up the secretions. In the restlessness and delirium of Fevers it is absolutely invaluable.

Justice to the profession and the claims of truth necessitate the avowal on my part that Battle & Co.'s "BROMIDIA," composed of the best German chloral, bromide of potassium and the parest article of Hyoscyamus and Cannabis Indica, is par excellence, I am constrained to say, THE BEST HYPNOTIC I HAVE EVER USED. The small bulk of the dose, its concentration, purity and general efficacy and convenience, will win over any practicioner wbo impartially gives it a trial. EVER DAY OF MY LIFE I Use it largely, and have recommonded it to hundreds of my brother physicians. At St. Viocent's Asylum I made a tost of it by giving EACH sister in charge of a ward iwo bottles, one containing "Bromidia," the other an ordina y 'house chloral mixture. After an impartial trial upon their

part, without any previous knowledge of the contents of the bottles, a uni. versal verdict was giyon in favor of “Bromidia."

Dishonest druggists sometimes SUBSTITUTE a cheap preparation (made by themselves from ordinary commercial drugs), when “BROMIDIA" is prescribed, and the physician is disappointed, AND THE LIFE OF THE PATIENT ENDANGERED. Physicians finding any SUBSTITUTION will please notify us, as we desire to MAINTAIN OUR REPUTATION. and PROTECT THE PROFESSION against DISHONORABLE and DANGEROUS substitution.

ADS"BROYIDA" is put up in 4, 8 and 16 ounce bottles, and is sold at $8.00, $16.00 and $27,00 per dozen.

Cod Liver Oil and Milk.

[ocr errors]


Physicians who use Cod Liver Oil, or who have discontinued its use in cansequence of its offensiveness or its injury to disgestion, should not fail to give this preparation consideration. It is so farin adı ance of the Emulsions and all former preparations of the Oil that they bear no comparison with it.

It contains 52 per cent. of pure Cod Liver Oil combined with Condensed Milk.

2nd. Both the Oil and Milk are perfectly digested and wholly assimilible and consequently will agree with the most delicate stomach, while the use of the plain Oil or the Emulsions soon injures digestion to such an extent that but a small portion is assimilated.

3d. It is so palatable that many Physicians administer it to delicate patients as a preparation of cream. ·

4th. The administration of plaii Cod Liver Oil, or the Emulsions now in use, will almost invariably exhaust the peptic secretions of the stomach in its effort to peptonize a substance only digested in the luodenum and also cause unpleasant eructations and


5th. A trial of PePTONIZED Cod Liver OIL AND MILK will convince any Physician :hat its reconstructive properties will prove five times greater than Plain Oil or the Emul. sions now in use.

6th. The keeping qualities of Peptonized Cod Liver Oil and Milk have been thoroughly tested at all decomposable temperatures.

7th. The complete masking of the Oil in Peptonized Cod Liver Oil and Milk is almost wholly due to the digested Milk.

8th. Peptonized Cod Liver Oil and Milk is furnished at the same price as plain Oil or the Emulsions although it costs one-third more to produce.

9th. Physicians or Druggists need not hesitate to order Peptonized Cod Liver Oil and Milk, for if it does not prove satisfactory in every respect, we will immediately refund its cost.

We also manufacture the above preparation combined with HYPOPHOSPHITES OF LIME AND SODA.

We will furnish gratuitously to any Physician who will pay carriage a pint bottle of the above preparation.
