BY W. HARPUR SLOAN, M. D., Chief Ear Department, Medico-chirurgical

College, Philadelphia, Pa. There are many alkaline preparations on the market that are used daily with varied results in conditions where such a preparation is indicated. I have tried most of them in all conditions and after an impartial trial I am compelled to say that the preparation known as Glyco Thymoline, made by Kress & Owen Co., stands at the head of the list; its formula is one that would commend its use, the ingredients being of an antiseptic and non-irritating nature.

Having formed this opinion of Glyco Thymoline, I have concluded to report a few clinical cases where it has given me good results,

Case 1. M. L., age 23 years, came under my care suffering with a distressing case of Ozena. The turbinated bones on both sides of her nose presented a condition of marked atrophy; there was a complete loss of smell and taste and a formation of crusts in the nasal chamber; stench of same was foul. She complained of continual headache, and other symptoms of a depleted and run down system. I placed her on a tonic of Iron, Arsenic and Strychnia internally; locally I ordered the use of Glyco Thymoline in a Bermingham Douche three times a day, diluted. After a month's treatment the crusts had ceased to form, there was a complete restoration of taste and a slight return of smell; the general health was improved and the patient herself well satisfied with results.

Case 2. C. A., age eight years, came to me suffering from a severe Otorrhoea following Scarlet Fever. There was a muco-purulent discharge from both ears that rendered the child completely deaf; the auditory canal was excoriated and sore and the general health below par. I used Cod Liver Oil internally and syringed the ears three times a day with Glyco Thymoline. At the end of one month the discharge of pus had stopped; the hearing much improved and the child's general health very much improved.

Case 3. J. W., age 25 years, came under my care suffering with an aggravated case of Cystitis, which had been treated by several of our best physicians without much improvement. He had great pain in the

region of the bladder and the loins, which became worse on urination; a heavy deposit of mucus and some blood in the urine made his condition still more distressing. His temperature was 100, which would rise a degree during the periods of pain. I used the usual treatment for such cases, without positive results, when I thought of irrigating the bladder with Glyco Thymoline (diluted). This I did once in twenty-four hours, at the same time giving him Glyco Thymoline internally in teaspoonful doses every three hours. For the first two days I did not see much improvement, on the third day there was no blood and less mucus in the urine. I continued this treatment for two weeks, when I discharged him cured.

Case 4. · J. H., age 35 years, consulted me or Pruritus Ani which had troubled him for several years; his business compelled him to sit the best part of the day. He had used various ointments, prescriptions, etc., for this troublesome affection, with only temporary relief. At his first visit I ordered him to bathe the rectum twice daily with castile soap and warm water, then to apply Glyco Thymoline, half strength to the parts. After persisting for a time, the swelling and severe itching were lessened, and then left him altogether.

A SEEMING PARADOX.-Many physicians in widely separated parts of the country have reported an experience with the use of Gray's Tonic which is well worth the serious consideration of every physician. The experience is briefly this: the peculiar hyper-sensitive condition of the nervous system, commonly designated "nervous ness" or "nervous irritability," is almost immediately relieved by the regular dosage of Gray's Tonic.

This condition is but a manifestation of exhaustion of the nervous system, which can be permanently overcome only by the persistent judicious application of therapeutic measures, which have for their object the restoration of tone to the nervous system and to the processes of cellular nutrition. But while these measures are being applied the symptoms continue, i. e., the patient is nervous, irritable, mentally disquieted and sleepless, and it is upon these symptoms that Gray's Tonic exercises a peculiar calming and soothing effect.

Indeed, it is asserted that this sedative effect is in many cases more prompt than
