Just a few lines to inform you of the excellent results I had with resinol in a most stubborn case of frost bite this winter. It would positively not yield to any other treatment, and by faithful use of this preparation, the patient is now completely relieved.—Jos. Lebenstein, M. D., 670 Lexington Ave., New York City.

"Our Observation of the medical literature indicates that echinacea is being used far more than formerly.”—J. A. M A., April 8th, 1905. Ecthol contains in each fluid drachm twenty-eight grains echinacea and three grains thuja. It is put up in bottles holding twelve ounces and any physician who has not used ecthol, can get a 12-ounce bottle for experimental purposes by sending 25 cents to Battle & Co, to prepay express charges.

Quarantine Sketches is the title of an interesting booklet issued by the Maltine Co., Brooklyn N. Y., in which are portrayed the precautions taken by our government to prevent disease from being carried into this country by the thousands of emigrants that are landed every day. The pamphlet is beautifully gotten up, and the illustrations are from photographs. The company will take pleasure in sen ling a copy to any physician who makes request.

Eusoma in Infection.-Under date of January 20, 1906, Dr. J. R. Phelan, editor Oklahoma Medical News-Journal, Oklahoma City, Okla., writes: Last week I treated a case of infection following vaccination, in which the arm was much swollen, discolored, and so painful as to render sleep impossible. I put him on teaspoonful doses of eusoma, every two hours, and kept gauze, saturated with eusoma, around the arm; relief from the pain was almost instantaneous with the first application, and in twenty-four hours the swelling was reduced by one-half, while at the end of forty-eight hours the swelling and other evidences of inflammation had entirely subsided, leaving a perfectly healthy vaccination sore. The rapid improvement of such cases is very gratifying to both physician and patient.

Spraying for Diseases of the Respiratory Passages.-Dr. David Walsh, senior physician to the Western Skin Hospital, London, writes: Glyco-Thymoline was brought to my notice as an excellent lotion for nasal and oral sprays and washes. On due inquiry it was found to fulfil the two conditions usually recognized by medical men in the United Kingdom as vouching for the character, so to speak, of such a preparation. First. its advertisements are accepted by our three leading journals, the Lancet, British Medical Journal and the Medical Press and Circular. Secondly, its composition is not a secret, its formula being freely published. Under these circumstances, I determined to try the effect of this preparation in a few simple cases. As a general antiseptic fluid that does not coagulate albumen, and is non-irritant, deodorant and praetically non-poisonous, glyco.thymoline has clearly a wide range of usefulness. My own observations, however, have been practically confined to its use in the nose and mouth, with results that have proved satisfactory in every instance, especially in acute coryza, pharyngitis, influenza and septic conditions of the mouth.

THERE will be a sketch of that friend of all young hearts, Robert Louis Stevenson, in the April St. Nicholas, by Ariadne Gilbert, under title of “The Lighthouse-Builder's Son." While the boyhood of Robert Louis will be dwelt upon with much interesting detail, the story of his later life and his work will also be covered; and there will be extracts from Steven. son's letters and a number of interesting illustrations, one a reproduction of the bronze memorial of Stevenson by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, now in St. Giles's Cathedral, Edinburgh.
