The attitude of the medical profession toward what is known as 'patent medicines," is not at all unreasonable. Thousands of these nostrums are offered to the public every year. Some of them are dangerous, and most of them are futile. Swift's Specific (S. S. S.), we are all glad to say, is not classed among these nostrums. It has overeĆ³me the wholesome prejudices of physicians in all parts of the country, and some of the strongest testimoniĆ”is in its behalf come from medical men who have used it in their practice, and who do not hesitate to endorse its wonderful results. This is extremely gratifying, but by no means astonishing, for every claim that is put forward in behalf of S. S. S. is basedon a series of actual experiments extended over a long period of time. There are two very ancient poems concerning f eminine whistlers, aud as they are diametically opposite opinions everybody can be satisfled with the one or the other. The first runs: WhistJing girls and crowing hens Are sure to come to some bad ends. The other is more charitable: Whistling girls and bleating sheep Are the best property a man can keep.
