meet the growing demands of the impregnated ovum. The vital processes of both nutrition and elimination are more heavily taxed, and this, of course, means greater activity on the part of the nervous and circulatory systems. Under normal conditions, however, since the female organism is especially designed for the one great purpose, maternity, there is only a modification or increase of function throughout the body. Thus in every sense, in spite of its many complex details, normal pregnancy is purely physiological.

But if for any reason pregnancy is abruptly terminated before the time at which it would normally end, the condition becomes distinctly pathological. Delicate structures, especially those of the generative organs, are suddenly arrested while in a stage of active development, and a retrograde process has to be prematurely established. There naturally follows a marked depression of the whole nervous system, because of its unprepared state for meeting an event unexpected and unnatural. More important than all, however, is the fact that certain growing tissues that would separate normally at the end of pregnancy, in early stages are so closely attached to the uterine wall, that premature delivery always means tearing them away, leaving ragged, lacerated surfaces and an inevitable retention of tissue that because it has no further purpose must be either thrown off or absorbed by the organism. The extreme liability to infection at this time is well-known, and is directly due to the predisposition which attends this invariable presence of dead or dying tissues. From the foregoing, it must be apparent, that the effect of every miscarriage is depressing in character. Every organ cannot fail to feel the pernicious imprint, and there is a logical falling off of every vital process. Because of the formation and absorption of ptomaines and toxins of varying degrees of virulence, there is always more or less vitiation of the blood and disintegration of its corpuscular elements. While the hemolysis may not be extreme, it is generally sufficiently marked to leave no doubt that it is a prominent factor in determining the duration of convalescence and the completeness of recovery. In regard to treatment it seems hardly necessary to speak of the importance of thorough antisepsis nor of the frequent necessity of removing decaying material. These things are well appreciated by physicians generally. But what should be emphasized is the great importance of vigorous reconstructive treatment after miscarriages, in order to hasten the restoration of normal conditions, with all that this may mean on a woman's whole future health. Clinical experience has shown that Pepto-Mangan (Gude) has an especial value in these cases, for it not only supplies the urgent needs of the blood,

but directly promotes the elimination of ptomaines through the natural channels. The phagocytic process is stimulated, and as a supply of good active blood is produced, the uterus and related organs are vastly helped in their effort to return to normal conditions. Digestion and assimilation are aided and the general vitality reinforced to a marked degree. In a word, Pepto-Mangan (Gude) is an unsurpassed tonic wherever there is a lowering of blood quality, from no matter what cause, and the definite positive benefits which follow its administration leave no further recommendation necessary.

AN ACTIVE DEPLETANT FOR PELVIC CONGESTIONS.—The presence of congestion or inflammation, whether acute or chronic, involving the female pelvic cavity, forms grounds for anxiety. Fortunately, we have passed the age where operative conclusions are hastily made. A superficial study of the vascular supply of the female pelvic organs, with its vesico-vaginal and vesico-uterine plexus forming a complete network of anastomosis, is sufficient to show that local applications of depleting agents to the vaginal and rectal canals form both practical and theoretical ideals in treatment, which by purgative action reduces the stasis of engorged cellular tissue and lowers vascular tension, thus aiding nature in restoring normal glandular action. Glyco-Thymoline, in contact with mucous membrane everywhere, produces the following physiological activities in direct proportion to the vascularity of the structure. It stimulates the secreting cavity of glandular structure of all mucous surfaces, so that larger quantities of watery fluids are exuded. On the law of exosmosis, which determines the passage of fluids through animal membranes from a rare to a more dense saline medium, this solution through its stimulating and hygroscopic property brings about a rapid depletion, drawing outwardly through the tissues the products of inflammation and materially reducing the danger of septic infection. The following clinical case bears with interest on the subject: Chas. Le Cates, M.D., Philadelphia, Pa., reports:-Mrs. A. consulted me in reference to her condition. Made a thorough examination and found uterus much enlarged, very turgid, degeneration of the endometrium, discharge rather profuse. Treatment—Hot vaginal douche, 10 per cent. Glyco-Thymoline. I then irrigated the uterus with pure Glyco-Thymoline and tamponed the vagina with lamb's wool saturated with Glyco-Thymoline. This treatment was given twice and three times a week. Improvement was rapid, congestion was reduced and patient discharged in six weeks. I see the patient frequently and there has been no recurrence of former trouble.
