In looking over the officers and appointments A. I. H, the absence of any Denver names heretofore prominent is conspicuous beyond comprehension. Oh, well!
The Chironian says that Governor-Elect Hughes favors homeopathy very much. Another reason why the good people of the Empire state should feel extremely happy.

After Operations.-After an operation, be it simple or severe, it is always good practice to reinforce a patient's vitality. Gray's Glycerine Tonic Compound is eminently useful for this purpose.
Malarial Cachexia.—The cachexia resulting from malaria is often persistent, even after the active cause has been controlled. In such cases, Gray's Glycerine Tonic Compound proves of great service in stimulating the reconstructive powers of the blood. The toxins resulting from the malarial hemolysis are rapidly eliminated, and increased impetus is given to the restoration of normal red blood cells.
Going to Sea by Rail.-One of the most interesting of the many interesting publications issued during the past year is the little booklet entitled “Going to Sea by Rail,” which is one of the Union PacificSouthern Pacific series of short and snappy stories. The one we most refer to is the Lucin Cut-off Primer, and it is worth your while to write the general office of the Union Pacific in this city in order to get a copy. Mr. J. C. Ferguson, the general agent of this line, will be only too glad to grant your request for a copy or give you any other information likely to lighte your burdens in case you desire reliable data concerning travel in any part of the world.
ECTHOL.–Dr. W. H. Barnett of Huffins, Texas, in the Alkaloidal Clinic for November, 1904, says: I am satisfied that ecthol, a combination of echinacea and thuja, will prevent the sting of the bees from hurting him. Let him take dram doses every hour for three hours before he commences to work with them. The reason for the faith that is in me is this: They used to hurt me. Last summer I was taking it for skin disease, and while under its influence I was stung by a wasp on the face and neck. When stung I started to the house to get something to stop the pain and swelling that I expected to suffer with, but instead of pain and swelling, as heretofore when stung, there was no more of either than a mosquito or gnat would hauve caused.
MEATOX-POWDERED DRY BEEF.-Meatox is absolutely free from preservatives and it keeps for any length of time in unsealed containers.
The essential difference between Meatox and meat juice or meat extracts is that Meatox contains all the nutritive elements of beef, while liquid extracts of meat are merely stimulants,
Meatox contains from 65 to 70 per cent. of proteines and albumoses, and about 2 to 3 per cent. of common salt, 2 to 3 per cent. gelatine, 2 to 3 per cent. of fat, 7 to 9 per cent. water and inert substances.
One pound of Meatox contains the nutritive substances of five to five and one-half pounds of fresh beef.
Meatox can be given to dyspeptic patients in its original powdered condition, one-half ounce morning, noon, 6 p. m. and 10 p. m.
It can also be administered with milk, cream, fresh butter on toast, filtered water either cold or warm, beef tea or bouillon, honey, pure malt, soft boiled eggs or soft omelet, cereals, barley, wheat, rice, etc., cooked green vegetables.
Two ounces of Meatox being administered to a dyspeptic patient every day, in connection with the little amount of other foods which he can partake, will supply him with all the proteides contained in eleven ounces of fresh beef. This is a little more than anyone needs to eat every twenty-four hours to keep up his strength.
In diabetic cases, two or three ounces of Meatox per twenty-four hours will supply the patient with the necessary amount of proteides without overtaxing his stomach.
Soldiers in the field can be fed with two or three ounces per day of Meatox in connection with cereals, rice, cooked green vegetables, etc.
Sailors can be fed with two or three ounces per day of Meatox, either plain or mixed with cereals, etc., so that it would not be necessary to give them salt meat more than once or twice a week, in connection with cereals, thus preventing scurvy, which causes so many victims in the navy.
One ton of Meatox contains as much proteides and albumoses as six to seven tons of beef, while it does not require any ice to preserve it, either in transit or in stock, and it does not deteriorate with age.
As I am certain you will be interested in this new food, it will afford me great pleasure to send you a liberal supply for experimenting purposes as soon as I am ready to put it on the market,
Meatox is a Marchaund preparation, which insures its reliability.
Meatox is flavored with 1 per cent, of celery extract so as to make it palatable.

DR. GIVINS' SANITARIUM, STAMFORD, CONN.-Is a Homeopathis sanitarium arranged on the cottage plan for the care and treatment of mental and nervous diseases, and for alcoholic and narcotic habibtues.
Stamford is a city of 19,000 inhabitants, located on Long Island sound, only fifty minutes from New York, on the main line of the N. Y., N. H. & H. R. R. R., with forty-two trains each way daily.
The location near the sea shore makes it an attractive, beautiful and pleasant place of residence.
The climate is free from extreme heat in summer, and exceptionally mild in winter. The snowfall is much less than at many points further south. The invigorating and beneficial properties of the sea air are generally recognized for nervous invalids.
The entire Homeopathic profession of the city of Stamford endorse and recommend this institution, and the Middletown (N. Y.) Conglomerate has the following to say:
"Stamford Hall, at Stamford, Connecticut, is well and widely known among physicians. The location is an excellent one; Stamford is only fifty minutes from New York, and the first stopping place for express trains, with forty-four trains each way daily. The cottages are all new and well furnished. Steam heat and electric lights, baths, and all modern conveniences are provided. The rooms are large and pleasant.
"Dr. Givins was formerly interne at the Middletown, New York, State Homeopathic hospital, and later assistant physician at Westboro, Insane hospital in Massachusetts. He is a member of the New York and Connecticut state societies, of the American Institute of Homeopathy, and of the American Psychological Association, and has had fourteen years' experience.
"Stamford Hall is not under the management of a stock company or corporation, but has been constructed and arranged by Dr. Givens so that each patient could have the privacy and special care desired, combined with the comforts of a pleasant home.
"As the demand for additional cottages manifests itself, other cottages were built, and at the present time ample accommodations are afforded for all demands.
“The rest treatment is utilized with cases of nervous prostration, hysteria and allied nervous disorders, as well as with certain acute mental diseases. In the treatment of other patients, diversion, recreation, baths, electricity and massage are used.
“Opium and alcoholic patients are admitted, occupy a separate department, and receive the most courteous attention.
"Experience has demonstrated that patients requiring special care cannot be more successfully treated than where their daily life can be regulated, where the physician is ever present and watchful of the diet, hygienic and general direction of the patient's welfare."
THE NECESSITY OF IRON TO THE PREGNANT WOMAN-It is universally conceded that the administration of iron in pregnancy is now made expedient by the development of an anemia which is usually foreign to non-pregnant subjects, and which, at one time, was an uncommon occurrence even in the case of child-bearing.
During pregnancy the appetite is invariably immoderately capri. cious and there is a disposition to gratify the palate by partaking of those food stuffs which have been rendered fictitiously attractive to the partial, or by the complete exclusion of the more simple and nutritious viands. While such indulgencies must inevitably contribute to the development of anemia, it was not until the modern table supply, consisting almost wholly of such victuals as hot breads, highly
