WE WOULD RESPECTFULLY INFORM THE PROFESSION THAT WE EMPLOY THE ONLY PROCESS IN COATING WHICH COMPLETELY COVERS THE PILL WITH GELATINE.
Among the many important formulas on our list, we have selected a few which we give below whose reputation is mainly due to the care we have exercised in selection of the crude drug and skill in manufacture. Physicians prescribing these or any of our pills will not be disappointed in results, either from the poverty of the material or degeneracy of the mass after being made up into pills. In substances of this nature it is absolutely necessary that the pills be entirely covered by the coating. Pills have been shown us covered with a wash so thin as to be no protection whatever against the action of the atmosphere; every one of these pills that we examined had a hole running from the exterior of the coating to the centre.
A single dose of our cathartic pills will prove the ready solubility of the coating. ERGOTIN

IMPORTANT TO PHYSICIANS!
SPECIFY MCKESSON & ROBBINS Oval Shape. Complete Coating.
The fact that Sulphate of Quinine is only sol. uble in over 700 parts of water is not generally known, or if known is not usually considered, except in prescriptions, when this difficulty is overcome by the addition of Acid; and the further fact that Bi-Sulphate of Quinine is soluble in only 10 parts of water is as little appreciated.
McKesson & Robbins have paid much atten. tion to the subject of putting Quinine into Pills, in à conditior, approaching that of a solution, and have at last succeeded in their BI-SULPHATE OF QUININE PILLS, and offer the same to the profession, confident that they will stånd any test for solubility and prompt àćtion. Physicians will please always specify McK. & R. Bi-Sulph. Quinine Pills, and they will not be disappointed in results. The prices for our Bi-Sulphate Quinine Pills are the same as for the Sulphate.
Note.—With no reference to respectable drug. gists, we would say that cases have come to our knowledge and have been noted, where other pills have been substituted on prescriptions for ours.
