HIS is a perfectly pure and extremely agreeable prepara-
and digestive properties of Malt with the well-known bitter tonic qualities of Hops. The very low percentage of alcohol contained in it and the large amount of nutritious extractive matter render it the most desirable preparation for administration to nursing women, invalids, children, etc. In the usual dose of a wineglassful three or four times daily, it excites a copious flow of milk, and supplies strength to meet the great drain upon the system experienced during lactation. The diastasic principles of the Malt render this preparation of great service in cases of malnutrition, dyspepsia, etc., causing the assimilation of starchy foods, increasing the appetite, storing up fat, etc.

WE BEG TO ANNOUNCE OUR REMOVAL to No.
to No. 132 VICTORIA St., where we shall be pleased to meet our old customers and friends,
and to greet any others interested in our line of business, When we moved to our late place of business, 128 Wellington St., we be-lieved that we had room and facilities sufficient to accommodate us for many years to come, but we are pleased to announce that our business has increased to such an extent during the past two years that we are compelled to seek larger and more commodious quarters. Hence our removal to our present location, where we have four times as much room as before, and where we believe we shall be able to give our customers even better service than formerly.
It is, perhaps, with pardonable pride that we make the above announce.ment, as we can only attribute our growing success to the superior merit of our goods and our constant aim to please those with whom we have business relations.
We are yours very truly,

The last issue of the Western Druggist contains an editorial article on the misuse of the word base for vehicle in connection with ointments, the writer taking the correct ground that lard, or petrolatum. etc., is a vehicle, not a base as so many writers claim. American writers of eminence as a rule adhere to the use of the word vehicle, but we note that Proctor in his “ Lectures on Practical Pharmacy' and Cripps in “Galenic Pharmacy” both use the term “ointment base"; the B. P. also in the monograph on paraffin ointment uses the word “basis." We think it would be just as correct to say that 60 per cent alcohol is the basis of tincture of calumba, as to say that benzoated lard is the basis of cantharides ointment. The cases are exactly similar, but we do not think that any would ve the hardihood to say that the first is correct, and if not, why not apply the same rule to ointments?

AN APPROACHING CHANGE.
This issue of the Journal contains a number of letters from several of our readers,
interesting and profitable reading. That of Mr. Mackenzie is especially worth perusing. If every druggist in Ontario will read it, we will have no cause to regret having drawn attention to the subject dealt with.
In explanation we wish to say that we do not hold the present council entirely responsible for existing conditions nor the state of our pharmacy act.
Such, as Mr. Mackenzie says, would be most unjust. We use the expression “The work
for some years past” to prevent just such a misconception. The subject of bettering the condition of pharmacy in Canada is a live one, and one that will justify considerable thought being given to it by every member of the craft. Our intention in writing last month was not so much to secure a change of men as a
There is now under discussion a plan by which McGill University will absorb the Montreal College of Pharmacy and open a department of pharmacy, such as is carried on by all the great American and European universities. The plan of course will meet with opposition, as all plans for improvement do, but the change is inevitable. Almost all the colleges of pharmacy in the U. S. are now branches of universities, the only prominent exceptions being those of Philadelphia, New York and Boston, which are old and wealthy institutions. Pharmacists in the American cities have found that the trouble and expense of carrying on successfully a school of pharmacy are more than they could stand, and have been only too glad when they have been able to unload their burden onto an institution able to carry on the work. The same thing will occur in Montreal, if not now, at a later period.
The Montreal College of Pharmacy has been in existence for thirty years, carried on by a few mien who devoted their time and, in many cases, money
