Fellows' Hypo-phos-phites


Contains The Essential Elements to the Animal Organization---Potash and


The Oxydizing Agents---Iron and Manganese;

The Tonics---Quinine and Strychnine;

And the Vitalizing Constituent---Phosphorus,

Combined in the form of a Syrup, with SLIGHt alkaline reACTION.

It Differs in Effect from all Others, being pleasant to taste, acceptable to the stomach, and harmless under prolonged use.

It has Sustained a High Reputation in America and England for efficiency in the 'treatment of Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Chronic Bronchitis, and other affections of the respiratory organs, and is employed also in various nervous and debilitating diseases with success.

Its Curative Properties are largely attributable to Stimulant, Tonic, and Nutritive qualities, whereby the various organic functions are recruited.

In Cases where innervating constitutional treatment is applied, and tonic treatment is desirable, this preparation will be found to act with safety and satisfaction.

Its Action is Prompt; stimulating the appetite, and the digestion, it promotes assimilation, and enters directly into the circulation with the food products.

The Prescribed Dose produces a feeling of buoyancy, removing depression or melancholy, and hence is of great value in the treatment of MENTAL AND NERVOUS AFFECTIONS.

From its exerting a double tonic effect and influencing a healthy flow of the secretions, its use is indicated in a wide range of diseases.

Where mother's milk is insufficient,


This food is especially commendable because the physiological relations of the infantile digestive organs, particularly the lack of notable salivary and pancreatic secretions, are taken into account in its fabrication. The starch contained in it having been transformed into dextrin.-Prof. Wm. O. Leube, Ziemmsen's Cyclopædia, Vol. VII.

We also refer the profession to other eminent writers in the same medical work, viz: Prof. Juergensen on Catarrhal Pneumonia, Vol. V. Prof. Senator on the Treatment of Rachitis, Vol. XVI. Prof. BirchHirschfeld on Scrofulosis and Affections of the Lymphatic Glands in General, Vol. XVI.

In addition to the above mentioned special features of Nestle's Milk Food, it has a world wide reputation as a food for infants, producing pure blood, firm flesh, hard muscle and tough bone. It will agree with a larger number of children regardless of age, than any other substitute for the mother's milk, and we believe that the general use of this food during the past summer has accomplished more for the diminution of the infant mortality from Cholera Infantum than any other means known.

Restrictions deemed advisable during its experimental period are no longer necessary. It has been before the medical profession for three years. It has received their severe scrutiny. It has earned their full endorsement.

The urgent requests of numerous practitioners and of the medical press, and the advice of representative physicians, have led this Company to abandon precautions which have survived their purpose and to sell the Pneumatic Cabinet outright, upon terms which place the Instrument within the reach of the profession generally.

Important Publications on the Pneumatic Cabinet are as follows:

The value of Murdock's Liquid Food is recognized in all Countries, and is endorsed by all National Medical Societies that have investigated its value.

There never was an essay read before any Medical Society on Raw Food Extracts, except on Murdock's Liquid Food, and counterfeit manufacturers of Extracts have published many of our' essays to show the value of their counterfeits.

Send for Essay and DISCUSSION before the British Medical Association at Brighton, England, 1886, (Essay) by the Vice-President of the American Medical Association and others on the value of Murdock's Liquid Food over all Foods and Extracts known, it being the ONLY Raw Condensed Food, free from insoluble matter.

The returns show that it is the Standard

Food and Extract, as the percentage of lives restored was the largest when used.

We extract from the report. After calling attention to the fact that one-quarter of the homoeopathic profession are accustomed frequently to prescribe this food for children less than a year old, as well as over, he remarks:

Accordingly it is chiefly employed for marasmus and anæmic

Our Liquid Food can be retained by the weakest stomach. tablespoonfuls daily will make eight per cent. new blood weekly. When used for infants never change their food, but add five or more drops of Liquid Food at each teeding, and their lost or needed vitality will be restored in less than thirty days.

Should any indication of cerebral hyperemia appear,
the quantity of food must be diminished; so, too, if after its protracted
use vomiting and diarrhoea ensue; the child has been overfed. Should
the taste or odor of any given bottle chance to be disagreeable, add
water until they disappear, and let the purchaser congratulate
himself upon getting more nutriment than he paid for. When given in

be diminished until all curds disappear from the stool, the quantity of

Circulars were sent by him to all the Physicians in the United States, asking what their experience was with Murdock's Liquid Food in its use for infants under, as well as over, one year old.

Then what results, with all the different Milk preparations, Grain Foods, Peptonoid Foods and Beef Extracts, compared with Murdock's Liquid Food.

Liquid Food.

From the fact that no two beeves or sheep are alike is the reason of our different brands being different in flavor.

All brands are made by the same formula. The letter represents the day of make, and the figure the tank.

If richer, it is stronger in smell and flavor, and will bear a greater reduction. It cannot be reduced so low but it will be superior to all other preparations in treating chronic cases.

If you cannot obtain Murdock's Liquid Food from your druggist, we deliver, free of express, 12 oz. for $1. Any physician that has not used our Liquid Food, we will deliver free to the Boston express 12 oz.
