"And where would we go, conductor, if
the brake would not work?" asked the
stout lady in vile Italian. The ronluc

circumstances then was a second

might be relied on in such au unlikely

Mr. Bert M. Moses, the adver
tisement and business writer of o02
Third street, linx.klyn, relates that
he recently had occasion to consult
Dr. J. S. Carreau, a well-known
physician of IS West Twenty-first
street. New York city, for a stomach
trouble which was pronounced a
type of dyspepia. "A f tr consulta
tion," writ.-s Mr. Moses, "the doctor
gave me a prescription, and I was
somewhat surprised to note that
the formula was nearly identical
with that of IMpans Tabule., for
which I bad, on more than one
occasion, prepared advertising
matter. I had Dr. 'arreau's pre
scription tilled, and it proved
satisfactory, giving quick relief. A
week later, when I had taken all
the medicine. I again called on the
doctor and mentioned the simi
larity of his prescription and the
proprietary remedy spoken of,
showing him both the remedy itself
and the formula. The doctor was
at first somewhat inclined to crit
icise what he called patent
medicines, but appeared to be
surprised when he noted to what
extent his own prescription
conformed to tlfe formula I showed
him. It was practically the same.
After a short time devoted to noting
the careful manner in which the
proprietary medicine was prepared,
he wound up by prescribing it for
my case. Of course I h.;d to pay
him for telling me to do this, but
it was worth the cost to have such
high professional assurance that
the advertised article was, in fact,
the scientific formula that it
purported to be. I might have taken
the proprietary medicine In the
beginning and saved the doctor's
fee, but I think the confidence I
have acquired in the ellicaey of the.
remedy, through the doctor's
indorsement of it, is well worth the
