BIGGER AND BIGGER DOSES.—There is now daily medical paper published and from one of its editorials we clip the following:
“The cacodylates, hypodermically employed, enable us to push the arsenical medication to an extent that was formerly impossible.”
But why push arsenical medication? What good is it to the patient to fill him with Arsenic even if it doesn't kill him? What do you accomplish by it? Isn't it possible that “pushing" drugs to the liinit of human endurance is far more harmful than the disease you are supposedly combating ?
Notice.-Friends of Homeopathy, in various parts of the country, frequently subscribe for the HOMEOPATHIC ENVOY, to be sent to individuals, or entire communities. If any one, therefore, receives the paper without having subscribed for it he or she may know that the subscription has been paid by some friend.
Subscribers can always ascertain the date to which their subscriptions are paid by referring to the date on the mailing tag.
The receipt of the renewal of a subscription is acknowledged by changing the date on mailing tag.
