(Absolutely Freo from Any Preservativo) an acceptable and soothing nutrient. It gives the greatest amount of food energy with the least labor for the digestive organs. It is sootbing 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 CĻAM 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 Ceptury Dictionary (following
the letter 2) 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 úgh 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 thousand teachers, recommends the following: "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: tho (though);
program (programme); altho (although);
catalog (catalogue); thoro (thorough):
prolog (prologue); thorofare (thoroughfare); decalog (decalogue); thru (tbrough);
demagog (demagogue); thruout (throughout);

Treatment of Dysmenorrhea. The time is now past when the well informed practician deems every case of dysmenorrhea an indication for dilation and cureting. In 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
