Every Physician Knows.

In the North American Practitioner, under the head of "Intestinal Antisepsis," reported by Dr. Pettingill, of New York City, we find some excellent experiences and from which the following is selected:

Every physician knows full well the advantages to be derived from the use of antikamnia in very many diseases, but a number of them are still lacking a knowledge of the fact that antikamnia in combination with various remedies, has a peculiarly happy effect; particularly is this the case when combined with salol. Salol is a most valuable remedy in many affections, and its usefulness seems to be enhanced by combining it with antikamnia. The rheumatoid conditions so often seen in various manifestations are wonderfully relieved by the use of this combination. After fevers, inflammations, etc., there frequently remain various painful and annoying conditions which may contiuue, viz.: the severe headaches which occur after meningitis, a stitch in the side following pleurisy, the precordial pain of pericarditis and the painful stiffness of the joints which remains after a rheumatic attack-all these conditions are relieved by this combination called Antikamnia & Salol Tablets' containing 2 grs. each of antikamnia and of salol and the dose of which is one or two every two or three hours. They are also recommended highly in the treatment of cases of both acute and chronic cystitis. The pain and burning is relieved to a marked degree. Salol makes the uric acid and clears it up. This remedy is a reliable one in the treatment of diarrhea, entero-colitis, dysentery, etc. In dysentery, where there are bloody, slimy discharges, with tormina and tenesmus, a good dose of sulphate of magnesia, followed by two antikamnia and salol tablets every three hours, will give results that are gratifying."

Tyree's Antiseptic Powder

Contains sod. bor., alumen, ac. carbol., glycerin, the cryst. principles of thyme, eucalyptus, gaultheria and mentha.

For leucorrhea, gonorrhea, vaginitis, pruritus and ulcerated conditions of the mucous membrane, one to two teaspoonfuls to a pint of water three or four times a day. For scrofulous, syphilitic and varicose ulcers, apply the powder full strength or dilute with boracic acid. As an ointment, use from one to three drachms to one ounce of petroleum. For spraying the nose and throat, from twenty-five to one hundred grains to one pint of water (dissolves immediately). For immediate deodorizing and disinfecting, sprinkle the powder direct upon the object affected; the results will be instantaneous. For prickly heat, poison oak, squamous eczema and other conditions of a similar nature, use from one to eight teaspoonfuls to a pint of water (has proven very serviceable for these conditions). As a deodorant and prophylactic in dental work, use one or two teaspoonfuls to a pint of water. For disinfecting offensive cavities, fill them with the powder. For profuse and offensive perspiration, swelling, soreness and burning of the body and feet, use full strength or dilute with water. As a delightful toilet preparation after the bath and shaving, from one to two teaspoonfuls to a pint of water. The price is practically nothing. Ten cents worth will make one gallon of standard solution.

The Local Treatment of
Erysipelas with Acetozone.

Dear Sir-I had an ugly case of
facial erysipelas in a woman of about
thirty-eight years. I used as a local
application, to begin with, a satu-
rated solution of boric acid, and de-
pended largely upon tincture ferric
chloride as an internal remedy. I
got the attack under control, and
supposed I would have no further
trouble, but all at once the disease
began to spread over the scalp. The
usual remedies did no good, and I
thought that if Acetozone was the
germ destroyer it was represented
to be, it should be of use to me; so
I made a solution of fifteen grains
to two pints of water, and used it
freely on the scalp. I obtained re-
sults at once, and in twenty-four
hours the disease had abated. J.
Knowles, M.D., Logan, Iowa.
