Maltine is far superior in nutritive and diastatic value to any Malt Extract manufactured in the World. Send for Pamphlet giving

comparative analyses by twenty of the best analytical Chemists in this country and Europe.

There is no reconstructive that excels it in Phthisis and many wasting Diseases.

The following is from an article on MALT EXTRACT, by the late Prof. L. P. Yandell :

"Maltine, in its different forms, is the only Malt Preparation we now employ, being so palatable, digestible, and easily assimilated. Of its efficiency in appropriate cases there is no more doubt in our mind than there is of the curative power of Quinine, Cod Liver Oil, the Bromides and the Iodides.

Malţine deserves to stand in the front rank of constructives; and the constructives, by their preventive, corrective and curative power, are probably the most widely useful therapeutical agents that we possess.'

Extracts from recent article on MALT EXTRACTS as food, by J. Milner Fothergill:

"A good Malt Extract is a valuable food, a food of priceless value at times of emergency. In fact, in very grave gastric cases, Malt Extract is a food which may often be resorted to when at one's wits end what to do.'

When a physician prescribes an officinal preparation, he invariably expects such article to be of exact pharmacopeia strength. The success of the art of medicine depends largely upon minute and careful measurements, and the consequent observance of the finest laws of honor on the part of the manufacturing pharmaceutical chemist. Any departure from established formulæ, especially in the introduction of inferior drugs or extracts, for the sake of cheapness, is no less a wrong in morals than it is a swindle in trade.

In the manufacture of their specialties, Messrs. Seabury & Johnson have never almed to increase their sales at the expense of the quality of their goods. To make "the best," irrespective of all other considerations, has always been their aim. Hence, they call the attention of physicians and surgeons to the fact that they offer only one quality of medicinal and surgical plasters. All these goods are made in the best manner, of purified india-rubber, selected drugs, and incorporated with alcoholic medicinal extracts whose excellence is above suspicion. They are, therefore, guaranteed to give satisfaction in every respect.

Messrs. Seabury & Johnson have the honor of having first prepared a Ready Made Mustard Plaster on muslin. It is a convenient, clean, and thoroughly efficient preparation spread on strong cotton cloth, which is ready for instantaneous use by simply dipping it into water until perfectly wet. The objection to all mustard papers is obvious; for, when wet they break in pieces, they soil the skin and linen. Our plaster does not break, nor will the mustard peel off-as happens with all other makes.

We manufacture these plasters wholly of pure mustard, and warrant them entirely free from Croton Oil, or other dangerous substitutes often employed to induce intense irritation. To insure greater efficacy, and to guard against dampness, these plasters are wrapped in water-proof paper. Their con. venience as a household remedy is manifest. They are put up neatly in small water-proof packages, retailing at from fifteen to fifty cents, in yard, one-half yard, three, six, and ten pieces in tin boxes.

As to the superlative excellence of their Cantharidal, or Blister Plaster, Messrs. Seabury & Johnson are equally confident. One of the many respects in which it surpasses all others is its perfect cleanliness in use. It is prepared from carefully selected flies, which are skillfully manipulated at a low temperature, and it is not affected by climate. In the manufacture of this plaster, camphor is incorporated to prevent strangury; but the plaster can be ordered with or without camphor. Before application the surface of the plaster must be oiled-oiling eliminates the cantharidine quickly and promotes vesication. Sold in yard rolls.

Attention is called to the fact that the rubber combination in which this plaster is prepared, together with other materials used by us alone--preserves the strength of the cantharides indefinitely. The practical value of our process needs no argument with medical men and druggists.

How members of the medical profession regard our goods may be inferred from the following extracts, taken almost at random from a mass of similar evidence in our possession. Writing to Seabury & Johnson, from Tabriz, Persia, Geo. W. Holmes, M. D., says:

"I consider your plasters, for both medical and surgicai purposes, easily superior to those of all other manufactures of whom I have any knowledge. Especially am I pleased with your Mustard Plasters, so immeasurably superior to Rigollot's. I have been using your Camphorated Blister Plaster for some time with perfect satisfaction."

Dr. Robah F. Gray, of Winston, B. C., writes:

“ I can recommend the various plasters made by you as being thoroughly reliable, having used them for several years."

Willis P. King, of Sedalia, Mo., President of the Missouri State Medical Association, says:

"I take great pleasure in testifying to the merits of your line of plasters. One of the worries of a surgeon's life is to be plagued with an indifferent plaster when he needs a good one. The great variety of plasters which you make gives the surgeon everything he can possibly require in that direction."

W. Lewitt. M. D., Professor of Anatomy in the Medical Department of the University of California, writes :

“Your plasters of Belladonna, Cantharides and the Rubber Adhesive are the best ever used.”

Thousands of professional endorsements have been received by Messrs. Seabury & Johnson, in acknowledgment of the excellence and superiority of their preparations. Send for a catalogue.
