of the subject presented, in which he
advocated the usual classical treatment.

Adolph Alt, M.D., St. Louis:
* * Studies Concerning the Anatomy of
the Eyelids, Especially Their Glands"
(with lantern slides). The purpose of
the author was to report the result of
an extensive examination made of the
tissues of the eyelids, in which he had
found mucous glands located in posi-
tions where they were not usually found.
He also stated that in all his examina-
tions, with one exception, the tarsal
cartilages of the eyelids were not true
cartilaginous tissues.

H. W. Loeb, M.D., St. Louis : ** Pre-
sentation of Specimen of 107 Polypi
Removed at One Sitting." This case
was unique, not so much on account of
the great number of polypi removed
from the nose as from the fact that they
were removed at a single sitting. They
were uniformly pedunculated and varied

greatly in size. They were removed
with an electro-cautery snare devised
by the author.

J. O. Stillson, M.D., Indianapolis:
•* Removal of the Middle Turbinate for
the Cure of Some Forms of Inveterate
Eye Disease." The author read a very
interesting paper upon this subject, in
which he reported his observations as
to the relationship of nasal and eye dis-
eases and the results he had obtained in
allaying eye symptoms by the treatment
of nasal conditions, more especially the
removal of the turbinate.

Dr. Goldstein, as Chairman of the
Local Committee of Arrangements,
arranged for a museum of pathologic
and anatomic specimens, which, while
not large, was extremely interesting, and
marks a new departure in this society.

The officers elected for the ensuing
year were as follows : Dr. M. A. Gold-
stein, of St. Louis, President; Dr.
Wurdemann, of St. Paul, First Vice-
President ; Dr. C. R. Holmes, of Cin-
cinnati, Second Vice-President; Dr.
Fayette C. Ewing, of St. Louis, Third
Vice-President ; Dr. W. L. Dayton, of
Lincoln, Neb., Treasurer; Dr. Wm, L.
Ballenger, of Chicago, Secretary ; Dr.
C. R. Holmes, of Cincinnati, was made
Chairman of the Local Committee of
Arrangements for the meeting to be
held in Cincinnati next year ; Dr. Loeb,
of St. Louis, Chairman of the Member-
ship Committee.

Nature's Needs. — Symptoms may be
said to be intensified physiological functions
accentuated to.such an extent as to constitute
abnormalities. This is true of fever, pain and
the whole host of symptoms ascribable to
special organs and tissues. Emaciation and
nervous exhaustion ensue because the pro-
cesses of disease, requiring a^ they do fuel for
increased oxidation, deplete the patient of
nervous force and tissue structure. Nature's
method of repairing waste — by food — is pre-
vented, because the digestive organs share in
the general enfeeblement consequent upon
disease. The patient has neither the inclina-
tion to eat nor the physical powers necessary
to digest and assimilate food. It is in just
this class of cases that the restorative effects
of Gray's Glycerine Tonic Comp. are most

In ages that are past astrologers were
wont to cast a horoscope of the life of
an individual, foretelling future events
and influences from the zodiacal signs
present in the heavens at the hour of
birth. The period of astrological influ-
ence has given way to a modern science
in which there is evolved more things
that are new and strange than were
ever developed by ancient philosophy.
There are new concepts and percepts
which are both possible and probable,
from which views of a limitless horison
of life may be obtained, a result of
which is observed in the neighborly
contiguity of individuals and nations.
Nevertheless, the horizon of life is an
exceedingly variable term, expansible
and expanding, or narrowing and con-
tracting, according to the intelligence
and enlightenment of the peoples of
the world.

Aggressive, progressive, developing
modern science is the needle of the
compass that points to the star of indi-
vidual and national destiny. It is no

Digitized by




longer the largest battalions or greatest
number of ships that decides the fate of
monarchies and republics ; but the man,
his gun and armor plate determines not
only the future of the individual, but
of all that he stands for.

In ordinary every-day existence the
comprehensive life lines are measured
by immediate environments of the indi-
vidual, and extend from the uttermost
parts of the heavens to earth. No two
persons grasp an equal expanse; one
sees pennies and nickels, another dollars
and eagles; one views acres, another
leagues; one observes villages and
towns, another cities, states and nations.
Waves of wind are veered by barriers
of wood and stone. Electricity illu-
mines, heats and pierces metals.

The inscrutable scintillations of man's
intellect sparkle and expand in propor-
tion to his culture, training and educa-
tion. There is no such thing as a stand-
still. The world and all of its forces
are both changing and moving. There is
a constant regeneration and degenera-
tion, a building up and tearing down.
The very atmosphere may be liquefied,
solidified and inhaled ; while thought is
expressed through a wireless media and
distance annihilated. Impulses of im-
agination develop a reality in poetic
vision, and in fiction writers that
broadens the horizon of life and en-
ables the peoples of the earth to see
things that were invisible. There are
lights, shadows and darkness, but the
horizon of life is not limited by dis-
tance, time or space.

The intuitions and speculations of
the human mind are unfathomable, and
cannot be measured by latitude or longi-
tude, the depths of the sea or height
of the stars. Nothing just happens by
chance, but everything takes place and
occurs according to immutable law. As
man was in body and spirit created in

the image of God, so he walks. with
Him and in everything is supported by
the hand of an omnipotent, infinite and
eternal Fatherhood.


It is a sincere pleasure to note the
recent appointment of Drs. C. R.
Holmes and A^ B. Isham as members
of the Board of Trustees. Both are
eminently well qualified to administer
the affairs of the Hospital. This insti-
tution has grown with the necessities
of the city, and is now a chief charity
of the municipality.

Both Drs. Holmes and Isham are
thoroughly identified with the local
medical profession. They understand
the wants and requirements of the in-
stitution, and as broad - minded men
will meet emergencies and occasions as
they arise.

It may be taken for granted that
some new rules will be adopted. Life
positions on the staff should become
measures of the past. Without criti-
cising the ability of any one, it is quite
well known that there are others who
are just as capable, and who have equal
rights to a chance to display their skill
to the invalid and injured paupers of
the city.

More than ever it should be under-
stood that the Cincinnati Hospital is
supported solely for the benefit of the
poor of the city, and in it there should
be no pay patients. Poor people have
a right to all the benefits of the hos-
pital, and lose none of their self-respect
in going there ; but the man or woman
that is able to pay for hospital attention
has no business there and loses what-
ever personal self-respect he or she may
have when seeking registration as pa-

fyingly lessened by the recent adminis-
tration, but there is a good deal of
room for improvement in this direction
in the future.

The establishment of a branch out in
the country for tuberculosis cases has
been a great success. The Legislature,
at its recent session, has abundantly
supplied the means for its continu-
ance, further enlargement and improve-

It is always a pleasure to note recog-
nitions given to active practitioners
who have made some indelible marks
in the way of professional work, and
an equally sincere regret at seeing
medical official honors bestowed where
the recipient has sown and harvested
nothing but professional leaves. There
is nothing more important, or that con-
duces in an equal degree to the pros-
perity of a city, state and nation, than
the physical health of the people. This
is paramount to all other considerations,
and should be so recognized by authori-
ties in power. Large contributions to
campaign funds should have no weight
whatever in making such appoint-
ments. Merit and merit alone, as ac-
knowledged in working professional
circles, should have a recognition. Drs.
Holmes and Isham have honorably won
the honors recently bestowed upon
them, and are subjects for congratu-


This august body seemingly left little
or nothing more to be desired upon the
part of the medical profession. The
amendments made and shaped up by
the State Board of Registration were
welt sustained by committees from the
various societies. The bill as finally
passed has all the strength of the New
York law. It provides for similar ex-

amination of students in Cincinnati,
Columbus, Cleveland and Toledo. The
bill in special interest of the Osteopaths
was defeated, and in order to obtain a
right to practice they arc obliged to
pass the same sort of an examination
that is exacted from others.

It is a very great pleasure to report
that Lieut.-Govemor Caldwell, pre-
siding officer in the Senate, did good
and efficient service in the cause of
legitimate and reputable medicine. In
fact, his services were so valuable that
he earned the appreciative thanks of
the medical profession of Ohio. Dr.
Dandridge, of this city, was untiring
in his labors for the passage of the
medical bill. Drs. Love, Coleman and
Hendley deserve marked credit for effi-
cient aid rendered. The best of diplo-
macy was all of the time necessary to
success, and all of the time it was pres-
ent and ready to be accounted for. The
opposition and antagonism of the osteo-
pathic element was continuously at the
front, and they had able counsel, able
workers, and apparently located in a
permanent court.

In a legal way the medical profession
of Ohio are at this writing in better
form than ever before in the history of

the State.

In mentioning others it should have
been stated that Dr. Frank Winders,
Secretary of the State Board of Regis-
tration, rendered valuable service.


Civilization is said to be indicated by
the character of the roads of any coun-
try. With this idea in mind it is a
pleasure to note the great improve-
ments made in the Central States dur-
ing recent years, and the good work
continues. In this respect cities have
kept abreast of the country districts.

and now the agitation is for clean roads
and clean streets.

The people are learning laws of
health, and that dirt and Rlth are
synonymous with disease, while purity
and cleanliness are equally indicative
of health and physical prowess.

Health means joy and happiness in
living, good roads and good streets are
conducive to a felicitous life. Having
good ro'ads and streets, there is created
at once a natural desire to keep them
clean. In the streets in cities old slush-
ing methods must be abandoned and
new, improved, individual hand-work
adopted. This may cost a little more
in one way, but it would be more than
compensated in others. Good health,
less sickness and fewer deaths. Funerals
are always expensive, and nobody cares
to cultivate them as a specialty. So
while the new city broom is sweeping
clean, give aid and encouragement to a
gift of continuance.

Antiphlogistine's greatest mission is accomplished through its hygroscopic power,
its ability to favorably aflfect the circulation wherever it is abnormal.

In pneumonia, pleurisy, peritonitis and mflammation of other internal organs,
Antiphlogistine, applied liberally and hot, hugs the skin closely and the desired
heat is uniformly maintained for from 24 to 36 hours, while at the same "time
the watery part of the blood is being brought to the surface, thus relieving the
deep-seated congestio n, consequently the pressure and pain .

Antiphlogistine rapidly draws out or absorbs the liquid exudate from boils,
felons, erysipelas, inflamed glands, leg ulcers, and other localized inflammations,
relieves the pain and permits the restoration of the circulation.

THESE celebrated Sprfngs are delightfuUjr located in the Hot Springs Vallbt
OF Virginia, on the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway, at an elevation of 2,500
feet. They are environed by mountains rising 4,000 feet above the sea, and offer a
charming retreat for pleasure seekers and afford the natural conditions so necessary
for the comfort of invalids.

An exceptional and ftriking feature of the climate is its exemption from moisture.
The uniformity of temperature and the dry, invigorating, bracing air are splendid
adjuncts to the health-giving waters, and form one of the most important of the
natural conditions that unite to aid in the remarkable curative results that have been
experienced for generations, and that have lately become so widely known. The
surrounding mountains afford protection from violent changes and insure a delight-
ful temperature, free from extremes in summer and safe In the most severe winters.
The climate of Virginia is admittedly one of the most uniform, mild and pleasant in
the world, and official records show that the Hot Springs Valley, in this respect, b
a favored spot in this fortunate State.

DESPERATE CASES are not the only ones in
which Armour's Extract of Red Bone Marrow is indi-
cated. In a multitude of minor ailments that drag
under ordinary medication, it is the remedy, because
it makes hemoglobin, stimulates cell life, augments
the oxygen carrying power of the blood, increases the
appetite and gives tone generally to the system.

The nutritive and stimulative constituents of
Extract of Red Bone Marrow render it of especial
service in Anemia, Chlorosis, after hemorrhage and
