GENTLEMEN:-For a long time I have lookt for a syringe which would thoroly distend the vaginal folds in order to cleanse each one from any deposit or formation of deleterious matter existing therein. I have given your Marvel Whirling Spray a severe test, and I am glad to say that it is exactly what I require in every case of vaginal irrigation, for I am now convinced that the Marvel Syringe will thru its action, permit no secretion to remain after following the directions as given. I always recommend the Marvel Syringe and the Marvel Antiseptic Tablets to my patients. Very truly yours, JOHN J. MCMAHON, M.D.

Have you any troublesome cases of rheumatism, gout, lumbago, or neuralgia, on hand? If so you will be interested in the advertisement of Salmacrin, which appears on another page of this issue. Its makers ascribe its success to the purity of its component parts and the nicety of its preparation. It is not advertised to the laity, but is intended for physicians' use. See adv. on page 17.

"In presenting this pamphlet to the Medical Profession, we will state briefly that in our experience of twenty years in pharmaceutical work we have not at any time overlookt the importance of the quality of the ingredients entering into our products." Quoted from the introduction to a pamphlet sent us by R. & F. Schweickhardt. See their adv. on Mackenzol, on page 9.

GASTRIC IRRITABILITY

BURNHAM'S
CLAM

In inflammatory, ulcerated and disturbed con

ditions in general of the gastric membrane, BOUILLON.

Physicians will find

BURNHAM'S CLAM BOUILLON

(Absolutely Free from Any Preservative)

an acceptable and soothing nutrient. It gives the greatest amount of food energy with the least labor for the digestive organs. It is soothing to an irritated stomach when other foods cannot be tolerated. Owing to the process of manufacture the product is partially predigested and thoroughly sterilized. The rapidity with which it is absorbed gives the stomach walls a longer period of rest than can be secured through the use of ordinary nutrient agents.

It has been known and prescribed for years by many prominent Physicians. It presents an appetizing appearance and a tempting odor. It is a decided change from the ordinary delicacies for the sick room.

It is enthusiastically welcomed, as the average layman knows the value of the juice of the clam as a beverage, as strengthening and tonic in its effect, both to the stomach and the nervous system. An especially attractive feature about BURNHAM'S CLAM BOUILLON consists in the fact that it is bottled in glass, without any preservative whatever, being sold in pints and half pints. This assures not only cleanliness and convenience in the serving, but perfect purity and freshness while using in the sick room. All the leading apothecaries and grocers sell it.

Language is a growth rather than a creation. The growth of our vocabulary is seen in the vast increase in the size of our dictionaries during the past century. This growth is not only in amount, but among other elements of growth the written forms of words are becoming simpler and more uniform. For example, compare Eng. lish spelling of a centnry or two centuries ago with that of to-day! It is our duty to encourage and advance the movement toward simple, uniform and rational spelling. See the recommendations of the Philological Society of London, and of the American Philo. logical Association, and list of amended spellings, publisht in the Century Dictionary (following the letter z) and also in the Standard Dictionary, Webster's Dictionary, and other authoritativ works on language. The tendency is to drop silent letters in some of the most flagrant instances, as ugh from though, etc., change ed tot in most places where so pronounced (where it does not affect the preceding sound), etc.

The National Educational Association, consisting of ten thous and teachers, recommends the following:

tho (though);
altho (although);
thoro (thorough):
thorofare (thoroughfare);
thru (through);

thruout (throughout);

"At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the National Educational Association held in Washington, D. C., July 7, 1898, the action of the Department of Superintendence was approved, and the list of words with simplified spelling adopted for use in all pub lications of the National Educational Association as follows:

program (programme);
catalog (catalogue);
prolog (prologue);
decalog (decalogue);
demagog (demagogue);
pedagog (pedagogue).

"You are invited to extend notice of this action and to join in

[ocr errors]

securing the general adoption of the suggested amendments ➡ IRVING SHEPARD, Secretary."

We feel it a duty to recognize the above tendency, and to adopt it in a reasonable degree. We are also disposed to add enuf (enough) to the above list, and to conservativly adopt the following rule recommended by the American Philological Association: Drop final "e" in such words as "definite," "infinite," "favorite," etc., when the preceding vowel is short. Thus, spell" opposit," "preterit," "hypocrit," "requisit," etc. When the preceding vowel is long, as in "polite," finite,' "unite," etc., retain present forms unchanged. We simply wish to do our duty in aiding to simplify and rationalize our universal instrument-language.

Treatment of Dysmenorrhea.

The time is now past when the well informed practician deems every case of dysmenorrhea In an indication for dilation and cureting. such cases as really need it, it is a valuable feature of the treatment, but the procedure is by no means the whole of treatment even when indicated. The neurasthenic frequently forgets her dysmenorrhea under appropriate treatment for her disordered and distorted nervous system and its vagaries. Endometritis due to a sedentary life, aggravated by vicious habits of the bowels and indiscretions in diet, yields more happily to other measures than the curet. The pallid and anemic woman would better be toned up, fed, and given plenty of exercise in the open air, rather than be further reduced by the scraping process. In married women, intra-uterin treatment by the negativ pole of the galvanic current or by faradism, is of pronounced benefit. Cases of malposition should be dilated and cureted, and then the uterus should be replaced and kept in proper position.

Every case of dysmenorrhea should be given an aperient just before the date of the expected appearance of the molimen, and should be kept in bed for the first twenty-four hours of the flow. Morphin gives the quickest and most certain relief, but there is great danger of the habit being contracted if it is given continuously for many months. Two grains of acetanilid and three grains of carbonate of ammonia given every hour for three doses is said by Professor Hirst to be the next best thing to morphin. Apiol is but seldom of any use. The bromids and valerianate of ammonia may be combined with other measures, and are of undoubted utility in such combinations, but they are only effectual alone in the milder
