tissues less susceptible to painful stimuli. CELERINA, as a consequence, not infrequently affords a pronounced and permanent surcease from neuralgic pain when other measures fail completely.

CELERINA is not a narcotic and its benefits are the result of its action as a reconstructive, not as an analgesic per se.

is thus fortified against the physical strain which is almost inseparable from the close air and confinement of the class-room and the lack of exercise, due to such confinement. The frail, delicate boy, who seems to wilt and fade soon after his school duties are resumed, will also “stand up” better under the strain, if Pepto-Mangan is administered regularly for a couple of weeks in anticipation of the school days to come.

"PEPTO-FER,” first prepared by Dr. Jaillet, has for basis an organic compound of iron; Chloropeptonate of Iron, a combination of peptone and perchloride of iron, a neutral salt, entirely dializable.

It increases the respiratory capacity of the blood; it should be prescribed whenever it is desired to stimulate organic combustion either in the blood vessels themselves, (diabetes-glycosuria) or in the tissues (fatty degeneration) etc. Dr. Dujardin Beaumetz in one of his lessons in therapeutics expressed himself in the following terms: "If the best iron preparation is the one which is the most easily digested, I have no hesitation in stating that the protochlorides, the albuminates, and especially the Chloropeptonate of Iron are the most effective and beneficial.”

THE PASTOMETER, which is an instrument for the home pasteurization of milk, is about to be introduced to the American medical profession.

This device comes from Denmark and is being successfully used by medical men in several continental countries.

The necessity of pasteurization is very readily seen in the infant death rate in New York City. In the year 1907, 17,438 babies under one year of age died, as the Journal of the American Medical Association says, "from causes which were largely preventable." After the introduction of pasteurized milk through the efforts of Nathan Straus and the Health Department of the City of New York, the death rate

dropped, and in 1909 there were 1,461 less deaths among infants than in 1907. Had these two excellent agencies been able to cover every section of the city as thoroughly as they had a comparatively small part, the number of deaths would have been decidedly less.

For Thirty Years esolene Vaporized Cresolene



has held its position as a valuable remedy

for the bronchial diseases of childhood. It is particularly useful in the treatment of the very young.

Cresolene is indicated in Whooping Cough, Croup, Bronchitis, Asthma, Coughs and the bronchial complications incident to Scarlet Fever and Measles.

Vaporized Cresolene is destructive to Diphtheria bacilli and may be advantageously used in connection with the treatment of this disease. Let us send you our descriptive and test booklet which
