She was a young, unmarried lady. She had been somewhat of an invalid all her life, and came to me for treatment in an almost hopeless frame of mind. She had a small, thready puise, could not sit up in bed for any length of time, and vomited whatever was put into her stomach.. Kumyss, which is fermented milk, forms an excellent food for such patients, and when they become accustomed to its use they will be able to take it in large quantities. It will do more to restore the strength of this class of patients than any other preparation that I know of, and is the kind of food that I generally employ in such cases. After the patient had been placed on this preparation the vomiting immediately ceased.-From a Clinical Lecture by W. Gill Wylie, M.D., Professor Gynæcology at the New York Polyclinic.

THE AMERICAN MEDICAL DICTIONARY. Third edition, thoroughly revised. For Practitioners and Students. A complete Dictionary of the terms used in Medicine, Surgery, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Chemistry and the kindred branches, including much collateral information of an encyclopedic character, together with new and elaborate tables of Arteries, Muscles, Nerves, Veins, etc.; of Bacili, Bacteria, Micrococci; Eponymic Tables of Diseases, Operations, Signs and Symptoms, Stains, Tests, Methods of treatment, etc., etc. By W. A. Newman Dorland, A.M., M.D., editor of the “American Pocket Medical Dictionary.” Handsome large octavo, nearly 800 pages, bound in full flexible leather. Philadelphia, New York, London: W. B. Saunders & Companw, 1903. Price, $4.50 net; with thumb index, $5.00 net. Illustrated.

The rapid exhaustion of two large editions cannot but be a gratifying proof to the editor and publishers that this excellent work meets the varied needs of physicians and students better than any other dictionary on the market. In this third edition several hundred new terms that have been added to the vocabulary of medical sciences have been incorporated and clearly defined. The entire work, moreover, has evidently been subjected to a careful revision, and many of the tables, notably those of Acids, Bacteria, Stains, Tests, Methods of Treatment, etc., have been amplified, and their practical value largely increased. It is only ty such constant and careful revision that a medical dictionary can hope to reflect the progress of medical science, and the usefulness of this work by this present revision has been very largely extended. In make-up it continues the well-earned reputation of the publishers.






OVININE overcomes Anæmia logically, rationally and radically, for several substantial reasons:

Because it supplies the starving organism with the requisites for immediate reparation.

Because it reeds no preparation or transformation at the hands of the vital machinery before it can be assimilated and converted into living force. Scores of theoretically excellent foods lack this vital condition, and are therefore appealed to in vain. 3.

Because the condition called Anæmia results from a form of malnutrition which is not caused by lack of any nutritive element, but by the absolute inertia of the digestive


BOVININE comes to the rescue by supplying a vitalized and perfectly compounded pabulum that calls for no chemico-vital effort or expenditure whatever.

Have we made the contrast between BOVININE and all the rest of the prepared foods distinct enough?

If not, please apply the crucial test-clinical use-at our expense, and convince yourself that our claims are neither extravagant nor exaggerated, but are strictly based on science
