IT'S INDIAN SUMMER IN MISSOURI
Poems the Doctor Should Know
If you and I, dear, face the world together,
Loving each other—as I'm sure we doWe have no cause to fear that stormy weather
Can wreck our lives, or make our hearts less true.
For like the strands by clever figures knotted,
Our lives when drawn upon will lighter grow, Our chart of life by love and wisdom plotted
Will warn of rocks and reefs as on we go.
When all nature spreads wide and free,
For you no angel are—and I am human,
You have your faults-and I'll admit a few,
The love by beauty held is love unstable,
The love I have for you holds Time at bay, It waxeth with the years—and is well able
To brave grey hairs and wrinkles smooth away.
But, should we find that we have been deluded,
Our ship of wedlock driven off its course, I'll buy a ticket for some place secluded, And you can get a "safe and sane" divorce.
H. E. Bates.
IN FLANDERS FIELDS
By John McCrae, M. D. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky The larks still, bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amidst the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe,
It will show how a bone that was broken,
Has healed in a beautiful line, But if the break heals like a corkscrew,
The focus is wrong every time.
Lieut.-Col. McCrae served in France with the Ca 1 nadian expeditionary forces, contracted pneumonia and died. His name is familiar to medical men as the joint author of the Adami and McCrae Pathology.

BURNHAMS SOLUBLE JODINE
Summer Skin Troubles-For relief from the attacks of sunburn which are so common during the vacation season, there is no remedy so promptly effective as Dioxogen, diluted with five to six parts of water. This may be applied by wads of cotton, gauze or old linen. The affected area should be kept thoroughly wet or soaked with this solution of Dioxogen until the burning and smarting are decidedly relieved. This is often accomplished in a surprisingly short time, with the further advantage that swelling, puffing and subsequent soreness are usually greatly lessened—and often completely avoided. Other skin afflications such as mosquito bites, bee stings, prickly heat, profuse and fetid perspiration, ivy poisoning, and so on, are quickly amenable to the action of Dioxogen. In these conditions it should be applied full strength, or diluted according to the physician's judgment. The effects are immediate, with gratifying avoidance of infection or inflammatory reaction. The efficacy of Dioxogen is so pronounced in these conditions peculiar to the summer months, and in addition it is so free from any unpleasant or objectionable action, that physicians will do well to recommend that every vacationist include it in his kit. A bottle of Dioxogen has saved many a vacation from being a dismal period of discomfort and suffering.
Of all the iodine products at their command, they have found this particular preparation not only the most dependable but the one that can be used in effective dosage and over long periods without producing gastric disturbance, or other ill effects.
Burnham's Soluble lodine is iodine in its most active and satisfactory form.

An Exceptional Local Anesthetic-When, a little more than a year ago, announcement was made that the scientific staff of Parke, Davis & Co. had achieved the distinction of producing a local anesthetic possessing all of the advantages of similar products then in use, minus the disadvantages peculiar to many of them, the intelligence was received by thousands of American surgeons and physicians with manifest satisfaction. The advent of the new product was propitious. The time was ripe for a truly efficient American-made local anesthetic. And Apothesine appears to justify every promise that preceded it. There is abundant evidence that the product can be advantageously used in any case in which a local anesthetic is indicated. Proof of the efficacy of Apothesine comes from all over the United States. Two examples may be cited: A Minnesota surgeon says that he has used Apothesine at least eight hundred times and has yet to find a case that shows any toxic symptoms or incomplete anesthesia; he reports seven thyroidectomies, ex cision of elbow, amputation of arms, legs, fingers, carcinomas, sarcomas, cysts, and all manner of minor work. A New Orleans surgeon reports 250 operations of various kinds, ranging all the way from amputation of the finger to amputation of the breast, without a single failure and with no untoward result. Comparative tests prove that Aposthesine is as efficient as any synthetic local anesthetic and more potent than most of them. Its toxicity is low, being far less than that of cocaine and no greater than that of the least toxic of other syntheic anesthetics. Apothesine is supplied in hypodermic-tablet form, as follows: H. T. No. 216, each tablet containing 144 grains of Apothesie; H. T. No. 217, each tablet containing 3-5 grain of Apothesine and 1-1600 grain of Adrenalin; H. T. No. 218 (dental), each
A Timely and Important Declaration to the Medical Profession-Founded in New York City in 1867, the House of Schering & Glatz has been from its very inception, and throughout its existence, an American concern, entirely free and independent of foreign control, financial or otherwise. The relation of Schering & Glatz to the German-owned Chemische Fabrik auf Actien (vorm E. Schering) has always been that of an outright buyer of that Company's products with the sole privilege of marketing them in the United States. The German concern has never had a dollar's worth of investment in Schering & Glatz, nor have Schering & Glatz ever owned stock in the German concern, either as a firm, or as individuals. The "Schering" in Schering & Glatz stands for the name of one of the founders, Mr. Hugo Schering, a distant relative of the Berlin family. He and the original partner, Mr. Glatz, both American citizens, have been dead for many years. Schering & Glatz leading chemical and pharmaceutical products, so long identified by the brand name of “S. & G." are now manufactured in the U. S. A., either by ourselves, or under our direct supervision and control. Others, as yet unavailable, will be added as fast as prevailing conditions permit. We guarantee for all of these products a standard of quality fully the equal of the formerly imported. In prescribing "S. & G.” products, the physician will henceforth have the double satisfaction of applying therapeutic agents which he has known and relied upon for many years, while feeling assured that he is using the Americanmade products of a wholly American concern.

CAUTION! Whenever the true merit of a preparation is authoritatively established, imitation is sure to make its pernicious appearancr. To counteract the injurious results of another of these fraudulent pro ceedings in this instance affecting firm name and reputation-Sander & Sons have been compelled to appeal to law, and in the action tried before the Supreme Court of Victoria, the testimony of a sworn witness revealed the fact that this witness suffered intense irritation from the application to an ulcer of the defendant's product, which was palmed off as “just as good as Sander's Eucalyptol." Sander & Sons had the satisfaction to obtain a verdict with costs against this imitator, who is perpetually restrained from continuing his malpractice. Dr. Owen, in a report to the Medical Society of Victoria, and Dr. J. Benjamin, in the Lancet, London, both denounced, as others did before, on the strength of negative results, the application of unspecified eucalyptus products.
This forms convincing proof that only an authoritatively sanctioned article can be relied on. SANDER & SONS EUCALYPTOL
(Ecalypti Extract) 1. Has stood the test of Government investigation.
2. It was proved at the Supreme Court of Victoria by experts to be an absolutely pure and scientifically standardized preparation.
3. It is honored by royal patronage.
4. It always produces definite therapeutic results,
Therefore, to safegaurd the physicians' interest and to protect their patients, we carnestly request you to specify “Sander's Edcalyptol” when prescribing eucalyptus.

Where Edema is Attendant and where the heart, liver and kidneys are involved, Anedemin tablets may be prescribed with absolute fredom and safety and satisfactory results anticipated. These tablets are a combination of the active principles of Apocynum, Strophanthus and Squill with Sambucus as adjuvant and their action immediately eliminates effusion, controlls and increases the power of the heart, liver and kidneys to perform their function and affords the patient prompt relief and comfort. With continued use Anedemin strikes at the root of the trouble removing the cause. Being non-toxic, not cumulative and not a gastro-intestinal or renal irritant, Anedemin may be administered at frequent intervals in large doses and continued an indefinite time in small doses if necessary. The patient does not have to be watched or kept recumbent as in the administration of many drugs of this class. Physicians may obtain samples of Anedemin and literature containing exact formula by writing the Anedemin Chemical Company, Chattanooga, Tenn.
