What will appear very interesting to many people here is the article ta ken from a New York daily paper, giving a simple prescription which is said to be a positive remedy for backache or kidney or blndder de rangement, if taken before the stage of Bright’s disens*: Fluid Extract, Dandelion, one-half ounce; Compound. Kargon, one ounce; Compund Syrup Sarsapa rilla, three ounces. Shake well in a bottle and take in teaspoonful doses ( after eaoh mdbl and again at bed time. A well-known druggist here at home, when asked regarding this prescription, stated that the ingredi ents are all harmless, and can be ob tained at a small cost from any good prescription pharmacy, or tiie mix ture would be put up if asked to do so. He further stated that while this prescription is often prescribed in rheumatic afflictions with splendid results, lie could see no reason why it would not he a splendid remedy for kidney and urinary troubles mid backache, as it lias a peculiar action upon the kidney structure, cleansing these most important organs and helping them to sift and filter from the blood the foul acids and waste matter which cause sickness and suf fering.
