What are thcy? As a general thlng they are prescriptions having been used wítii prwHt uooeaa by oUl and well-read pliysiclans. Tliousands of invalkls llave been micxpcctedly cured by their use, and they are the wonder and dread of pliysicians and medical colleges in the U. 8., so niuch so, that pliysicians graduating at medical colleges are required to disi-niítitenance proprietary medicines, as through them the country doctor loses his most prolitable practlce. As a manufactnrtr of jiiopi iftary medicine?, Dr. G. G. Oteen of Woodbury, N. J., advocates most cordially - in order to prevent the risk tliat the siok and afflicted are liable to, almost daily by the use of patent medicines put out by inexperienced persons for Rjfgrandizement only, and the employing of inexperienced and inconapctfiit doctors by which almost every village and town is cnrsed; and men clalmbij; to be doctors who liad better be undertakers, experiiuenting witli patients and robbing them of tbeir money and health - for the good of the nfflicted that our Government protect ita people by makiiij; laws to recúlate the practice of medicine by better experlenced and more thoroughly educated physlcians, and thereby keep up the honor and credit of the profeesion, also form laws tor the recording of recipes of proprietary medicines, under exumination and decisión of experienced chemists and physicians appointad for that purpose by the governinent, before they are licensed for general use. He would most freely piare the recipe of Boschee's Germán Syrup and Green's August Flower under siich laws, had lio Uk; proper protection, and theroby save tlie prejudice of the people, mul avoid the competitiou and imitatioti of worthless medicines. - Copiet) from the Chicuco Mail, Aug. 3, '87.
