Common "rime Prejudice.
By K. V. Pierce, M. D.. of the World's
Dispensary. Buffalo, X. Y., Author ot
" I'he People's Common Sense Medical
Adviser," etc., etc.
1 am aware that there Is a popular, and
not altogether unfounded, prejudice
against "patent medicines.'' owlns: to the
small amount ol merit which many of
them poes. The appellation "Patent
Medicine'' does not apply to my remedies'.
as no patent has ever been asked tor or
obtained upon them, nor have they been
urged upon thu public its "cure-alls."
They are simply some favorite prescrip
tions, which, in a very extensive practice,
have proved their superior remedial tir
tncs In the curu of the dl-cascs tor which
they aru recommended. Every practicing
Physician has Ids avorlto remedies which
hu oltencst recommends or uses', becatiso
he has the irrcatest confidence in their
virtue?. The patient does not
know their composition. Kveii
prescriptions are usually written lu a lan
guage unintelligible to any but the drug
gist. As much secrecy Is employed as
lu the preparation ol proprietary medl
clues. Does the fact that an article Is
prepared by a process known only to thu
mautitacturer render that article less valu
able? How many physicians know thu
elementary composition of the remedies
which they employ, some of which have
never been analyzed f l ew practitioners
know how Morphine, (Quinine, Podophyl
lin, I.eptandrin, Pepsin, or Chloroform,
are made, or how nau-ootis drugs are
tratislorined Into palatable elixirs ; yet
they do not hesitate to employ them. Is
it not inconsistent to use u prescription,
the compo-ition ot which Is unknown to
us. and discard another preparation
sit"ply because It Is accompanied by a
,. tinted statement of its properties with
.ireciioiii, tor its UM
Some titi-ious, while ai'.aiiltliig that
inv mi dU-lne.- are 'uoil nh .rin iiviitlciil
eonio,uid, object to them on the ground
that they are too often ued with insutll
clent Judgment. I propoe to obviate
this iiiuicuiiy ny cuiientenlnir the neon u
us to the structure and functions ot their
bodies, tho causes, character, and symp
toms oi uiseat.es, aim oy indicating me
proper and Judicious employment of my
medicines, together with such auxiliary
treatment as may bo necessary. Such Is
one of Ihe designs of the People's Medical
Adviser, forty thousand copies of which
have already been published, and are sold
at the exceedingly low price of Sl.60,
and sent ( post-paid ) to anv address with
