CAUTIONS-Whenever the true merit of a preparation is authoritatively established, imitation is sure to make its pernicious appearance. To counteract the injurious results of another of these fraudulent pro ceedings—in this instance affecting firm name and reputation-Sander & Sons have been compelled to appeal to law, and in the action tried before the Supreme Court of Victoria, the testimony of a sworn witness revealed the fact that this witness suffered intense irritation from the application to an ulcer of the defendant's product, which was palmed off as "just as good as Sander's Eucalyptol.” Sander & Sons had the satisfaction to obtain a verdict with costs against this imitator, who is perpetually restrained from continuing his malpractice. Dr. Owen, in a report to the Medical Society of Victoria, and Dr. J. Benjamin, in the Lancet, London, both denounced, as others did before, on the strength of negative results, the application of unspecified eucalyptus products.
This forms convincing proof that only an authoritatively sanctioned article can be relied on. SANDER & SONS'EUCALYPTOL
(Ecalypti Extract) 1. Has stood the test of Government investigation.
2. It was proved at the Supreme Court of Victoria by experts to be an absolutely pure and scientifically standardized preparation.
3. It is honored by royal patronage.
4. It always produces definite therapeutic results.
Therefore, to safegaurd the physicians' interest and to protect their patients, we carnestly request you to specify “Sander's Eucalyptol" when prescribing eucalyptus.

A Real Tonic-According to recognized authority a tonic is “a remedy which restores enfeebled function and promotes vigor and a sense of well being." A stimulant, on the other hand, is "a remedy which produces temporary exhilaration and excitement of bodily forces, which is soon followed by a reactionary depression." In the conditions of debility or malnutrition which accompany nervous diseases, wasting disorders and convalescence, the body always requires more than "temporary exhilaration.” It needs support, a reenforcement of function, and a general restoration of tone to assure a return to normal conditions. In such cases medical men have found Gray's Glycerine Tonic Comp. a real tonic which can be depended upon to restore the strength
The liberal application of Pond's Extract full strength, with vigorous rubbing to the back muscles often gives marked relief from pain and lameness. A flannel compress saturated with Pond's Extract, placed over the lumbar muscles and a hot flat-iron passed over it until dry constitutes a remarkably effective treatment for lumbago.

DEFINING THE UNDEFINABLE-WOMAN
You are everything that we want, all that we t to avoid.
You are an economic necessity, an expensive lu ury.
You are as fickle as April, as constant as time.
You are as wrathful as Thor, as peaceful as Kan wang.
You desire protection, but scorn the protector.
You are the annoyance of manhood, the sola of age.
You despise cowardice, but shudder at valor.
You are modest at home, but, on the beach-a men.
You are devotedly religious, impatient of socia restraint.
You dearly love freedom, but, adhere to com ventionalities.
You are the embodiment of love, the incarnatic of jealousy.
You sympathize with our pain, but, inflict us wil heartache.
You are infinitely self-sacrificing, intensely s fish.
You are the goddess, we worship; the demo we damn.
Your love is like cheese, mellowed and strengt ened by age; but, age breeds mold.
You are alpha and omega, the start and the finis of argument.
You are the bane of our existence, the joy of or life.
You are, inexplainable, indefinable, understan able.
You are the best thing on earth.

THE MEDICAL HERALD
is positively and unqualifiedly Independent and fearless in its editorials; its only aim is to serve its readers honestly, keeping them abreast of the times in all things pertaining to the progress of medicine in all its branches.
THE MEDICAL HERALD
through its Original Department, reflects the sterling ability and progressiveness of our western writers, while quite frequently publishing some helpful paper from a member of its eastern staff of contributors.
THE MEDICAL HERALD
while striving to be conservatively scientific and safely fortified in its utterances, does not believe in taking life too seriously-nor at all for that matter-even in the practice of medicine; hence our readers will find in each issue a choice selection of refined sentimental morsels -as a diversion-'a sedative for the weary mind at eventide.”
A Smile Somewhere Never a day that is empty of all
That makes the heart wholesome and sweet With purpose and effort-respond to the call,
And laugh at the thought of defeat! Never a day that is not full to the brim
Of the goldenest chances that rise To leap into action, to toil with a vim,
And to smile and be glad of the skies;
With faith in it all to the end,
Nor how rugged the road we must wend.
THE MEDICAL HERALD
welcomes contributions either of a scientific, jovial or novel character. Perhaps you have an unusual case to report; or a question to ask regarding diagnosis or treatment; or maybe you have written a verse or two which you do not consider "good enough to print;" or may have a "favorite prescription" which has been especially useful in certain conditions.
