Palliative Treatment of Carcinoma of the Uterus with Sodium Chlorate.-In the treatment of malignant disease of the uterus, the employment of sodium chlorate is recommended both by internal administration and applied topically. For internal use the following formula may be employed : B. Sodium chlorate

4 fluid drams. Syrup of orange-flower.. 6 fluid drams. Distilled water

5 fluid ounces. Mix.

Dose: A tablespoonsul or two, from two to four times a day.

As a local application a small amount of the following powder may be dusted upon the diseased surface: R. Sodium chlorate

ãã Bismuth subnitrate.

4 drams. Iodoform

2 drams. Mix.

One may also employ tampons of sterilized gauze saturated with a mixture of:

R. Iodoform

I part.
Sodium chlorate


20 parts. If iodoform be badly borne and give rise to toxic symptoms, cotton impregnated with salol may be used, being first immersed in a twenty-per-cent. aqueous solution of sodium chlorate.

Under the influence of the foregoing treatment metrorrhagia and fetid discharge diminish, the pain lessens, the turgescence of the cervix subsides, ulceration disappears, appetite and digestion are restored, and the general state is improved. Semaine Médicale, 1896, No. 35, p. 278. The Treatment of Neuralgia : R. Menthol.

} of each: 15 grains. Guaiacol

Absolute alcohol........ 5 drams. A small quantity of this mixture is gently rubbed over the painful spot, which is then covered with a piece of cotton. This can be repeated two or three times in the twenty-four hours.—Journal de Médecine de Paris, Juue 14, 1896.

The Comparative Safety of Trional as a Hypnotic.–Beyer (Deutsche medicinische Wochenschrift, 1896, No. 1; Fortschritte der Medecin, October 15, 1896) remarks that, in spite of the widespread employment of trional, only six cases of poisoning with that drug are known. One was an instance of acute poisoning; more than one hundred and five grains were taken at a single dose, with suicidal intent, but the person survived. Of the cases of chronic trional poisoning, only one, Hecker's, can be accepted as purely the result of taking the medicine. The patient recovered after discontinuing the use of the trional, which he had taken in daily amounts of twenty-two grains for thirty-six consecutive days. It may therefore be said that trional is one of the best hypnotics, if not quite the best, for unpleasant effects are readily avoided if it is used properly.

A Cool Bed :

Those who sigh for cool resting places in warm weather, and yet cannot give up their soft beds, can gain what they want by laying heavy white awning canvas under the sheets. So cooling is the effect that those who try it will be obliged to remove it on a cool night.-New Albany Med. Herald.

For Sweating Feet:

Nodern Medicine says that a French authority recommends the following: R. Argent, nit....

gr. 96. Alcohol....


Heart-strain :

Pawinski regards caffeine as of special use in functional and degenerative disease of the heartmuscle, and especially in the early stages. Sudden heart-strain from emotion or during fevers is particularly benefited by caffeine.- Medical Times and Hospital Gazette.

M. Sig. : Bathe soles and between toes every morning until the horny bed found upon these parts falls off,

The Sweating of Phthisis :

In the Presse médicale we find the following formula for the sweating of phthisical patients :

Sodium tellurate.... from 1.5 to 3 grains.



The dose is a teaspoonful every night and morning, in a little sweetened water.

The most frequent forms of diseases of the eye are those located in the mucous membrane of the eyelids (conjunctiva). When left alone they are not only a fruitful source of annoyance and suffering. but they often endanger the existence and usefulness of the eye as an organ of sight. The frequency of these external affections of the eye has made their treatment one of the richest mines for quacks from the oldest times. All practitioners of medicine being called upon to treat these diseases, especially those in the country, recognize from the formula of Palpebrine a product of no untried remedies, but entirely reliable in the treatment of external eye diseases.
