but when this is the case under the best possible conditions, what can one expect from the use of imitations that are known and prescribed as such ?

Apart from therapeutic views, it is unfair, venal, dishonest. Persons who further their own interests by appropriating the discoveries of others and who confiscate the products of the brains of their superiors, are conducting their business along lines which the self-respecting and "conscientious physician cannot follow with profit to himself, nor advantage to his patient.

Anything done that will make substitution easy, or which will enable the skilled but dishonest pharmacist to become a party to the deception of physicians, cannot but be looked upon as a step decidedly unwise, and in direct opposition to true progress and meritorious advancement.

The outcome of the plans proposed by the A. of S. M. J. will be watched with interest.

NASO-PHARYNGEAL CATARRH.

By Edmond John Melville, M. D., C. M., Bakersville, Vt. In the treatment of this disease I usually follow these lines: Have your patient take a hot mustard foot bath, followed by a hot pack, where practicable, administer a saline laxative and a Dover's powder and put the patient to bed between warm sheets and keep him there for at least twelve hours. In conjunction with the above I have made it a routine practice to prescribe Glyco-Thymoline, used in the K. & O. Nasal Douche every two hours, diluted one to four in warm water. This bland solution remains in contact with the mucous membrane for a considerable period of time on account of its oily consistency and relieves inflammation by exosmosis, depleting engorgements rapidly. The above treatment followed out faithfully and well by physician and patient will cure the severest case of acute nasopharyngeal catarrh in twenty-four hours. This means in a great many cases the breaking up of an incipient case of la grippe, bronchitis, or even pneumonia, as we all know the tendency of acute inflammation of the mucous membranes to extend to adjacent structures by contiguity of tissue. All of my patients who are at all susceptible to colds are now equipped with a supply of Glyco-Thymoline and a K. & O. Nasal Douche, with instructions to begin its use upon the first symptom of a naso-pharyngitis coming on.
