The abstract of the U. S. P. and N. F. recently issued by Squibb is, we understand, only one of a number of similar lists to be distributed in the near future by manufacturers.

We publish in the Public Opinion Department of the MEYER BROTHERS DRUGGIST for November a letter from a local physician who is familiar with pharmaceutical as well as medical conditions. His suggestion to keep constantly before the medical fraternity in the medical auditorium samples of N. F.and U.S. P. preparations is backed up by arguments which will appeal to the pharmacists of other cities as well as St. Louis. If the pharmacists are to educate the physicians along these lines they must go about it in an effective but not offensive manner.

We feel justified in strongly urging the pharmacists to, first of all, become thoroughly familiar themselves with the preparations of the N. F. III. which has only recently been placed upon the market. The druggist to-day who is without a copy of this volume is decidedly behind the times. The Jubilee of the coal tar industry, and by this
