ments. Ipecac is a drug that has long been favor-

favor ably known and highly regarded, but due to its nause. what may be said to be a renaissance in ipecac therapy has taken place. By means of these uncoated, rapidly disintegrating tablets it is possible to administer, orally, large doses of ipecac without nausea. Each tablet represents the alkaloids from ten grains of the drug and the nature of the compound with hydrated aluminum silicate is such that the alkaloids are not liberated in the acid secretions of the stomach, but are promptly released on coming in contact with the alkaline intestinal secretions. Those physicians who, on account of its nauseating properties, have not been prescribing liberal doses of ipecac in such ailments as aucte tonsilitis, acute bronchitis, bronchial asthma, intestinal stasis and other intestinal infections now find the means at hand in alcresto tablets of ipecac.

Every Doctor in the United States should be interested in encouraging American manufacture of typically American medical products.

which bids fair to revolutionize the present-day dressing methods. Careful tests in large industrial hospitals show that by using this lace-mesh 50% to 75% of the gauze, absorbent cotton, and roller bandages may be saved, as well as hours of the time of surgeons and nurses, not to mention the saving of agony to the patient experienced in the removal of the old sticking, secretion stiffened pad of dressings, for this remarkable dressing does not stick. Just by way of introduction, the Abbott Laboratories, Chicago, Ill., who make this parresined Lace-Mesh Surgical Dressing offer a spe cial outfit containing a box of six envelopes of the Lace-Mesh, an ounce of Dakin's Dichloramine-T, and four ounces of Chlorocosane-the solvent for Dichloramine-T-prepaid to any point in the United States for only $2.50. They include, without charge, in the shipment, a trial bottle of Chlorazene, Dakin's watersoluble, stable antiseptic, and one of Digipoten, a typically American digitalis preparation, which leaves no excuse for using the German. Send for this package today, doctor. It has the Abbott guarantee of purity and accuracy.

Iodine as such, of course, is out of the question, and even the popular iodide of potash oftentimes occasions such distress as to neutralize its potential value. But, in Iodia (Bat

HE WILLOWS MATERNITY SANITARIUM is a modern and up-to-date Sanitarium and
Hospital devoted to the seclusion and care of unfortunate young women. It offers to the

medical fraternity an ethical and Christian solution to one of the difficult problems of the profession. The Sanitarium extends to these young women protection and seclusion in congenial and home-like surroundings before confinement, as well as providing efficient medica and hospital care during delivery and convalescence.

The Willows has been located, planned and especially equipped for seclusion maternity work. It is strictly modern, having steam heat, electric lights, gas and baths with lot and cold water. The patients' rooms are light, airy and furnished for home-like comfort as well as hospital convenience. The dining service has been especially planned for the work and wholesome, nourishing and well cooked meals are served.

The Hospital equipment is complete and modern, having been installed for this particular work. It includes two specially fitted Confinement Chambers, sterilizing rooms, massage room, diet kitchen and necessary drug and linen rooms.

The Sanitarium is open to any reputable physician to handle his own high-grade cases in it. When the physician is not accessible to The Willows or finds it otherwise impractical to care for his case, Dr. John W. Kepner, House Obstetrician, will handle it. The mothers and babies are attended by a corps of efficient, specially trained nurses.

Entering early in gestation is important for preparing the patient for accouchement through systematic, hygienic methods and massage. Patients may enter as early as they desire. A special system of abdominal and perineal massage has been devised and has proven very successful in the prevention of Striae Gravidarum and as an aid to labor.

The care of the babies is one of the important features of The Willows' work. The Nursery is modernly equipped and no reasonable expense is spared in the babies' care. When sueh arrangements are made the institution assumes the entire responsibility of the child, keeping it until a good home can be found where the child will be legally adopted.

The Willows Maternity Sanitarium has accommodations meeting the requirements of the most fastidious as well as others for those patients whose means are limited. But, notwithtanding the many advantages of its services, the charges are reasonable.

ANEDEMIN is the active principles of APOCYNUM, STROPHANTHUS, SQUILLS, and SAMBUCUS (formula with every package) so treated as to eliminate all untoward effects and safely produce the desired results.

It acts upon the circulation, accelerates the flow into the thoracic duct, rapidly returning the serum to the blood by the lymphatic channels as well as by resorption into the blood by healthy arterial tone, from whence it is removed by diuresis and purgation.

In confidential letters physicians praise ANEDEMIN saying: “Patient tapped eight times, ANEDEMIN restored him to former health.”

“—gave ANEDEMIN as last resort to man 78 years old dying with a very weak, irregular heart, general oedema, dyspepsia, etc., and he made complete recovery."

tle) the physician has an iodine product of distinct usefulness and particularly in the later manifestations of syphilis, for not only does it provide a means of introducing iodine into the system but furthermore it is free from the irritating qualities of the plain iodide. Its therapeutic effects are further enhanced by the addition of certain of the vegetable alteratives which have been clinically shown to exert an influence on the syphilitic processes. Whenever iodine is indicated, Iodia (Battle) may be exhibited with decided benefit.

The Withdrawal of Whiskey — In withdrawing liquor from men long accustomed to its use, the need for furnishing some support to the nervous system must be taken into consideration. The extreme nervousness following the sudden withdrawal of whiskey must be taken care of until the system has adjusted itself to its loss of alcoholic stimulation, and for that purpose Pasadyne (Daniel) has proven itself of the greatest service. Its administration quiets the disturbed nervous centers, and enables the patient to secure needed sleep. An advantage posssssed by Pasadyne (Daniel) is that no habit is formed and no depression follows its use. Pasadyne (Daniel) is
