" Part II,, which occupies the main part of the work, is simply headed
' Drugs,' and contains a full description of the various mechanical agents included

WORTHY OF THE HIGHEST PRAISE. After a technical description of the drug, its
source anil preparation, follows its physiological action on the various systems of
the body ; then the modes of its elimination; next any peculiar properties, such
as an antiseptic action or toxic changes from prolonged use, etc. Then we find
the symptoms of poisoning, and the measures to be adopted should such an occur-
rence present itself. The therapeutics are very plainly and fully considered, and
conclude with ' untoward effects5 (if any). Then follow the methods of adminis-
tration, the doses being given according to the two systems in vogue (apothecaries
and metric), and finally are the * contraindications' for the use of each drug.
"In Part III. are described remedial measures other than drugs, and a descrip-
tion of the methods employed in preparing foods for the sick.
u Part IV. commences with a consideration of the various diseases, purely
from a therapeutic point of view. Here also will be found a large amount of use-

medicines,' 'tables of relative weights and measures in the metric and apothe-
caries' systems'; index of drugs and remedial measures, and index of diseases and
