time de BUREAU OF INFORMATION L
The Medical HERALD has instituted this department for the purpose of supplying unbiased and reliable information to its readers concerning the numerous resorts of America. It is conceded that the American waters are equal, if not superior, to any found in the Old World, and our wealth and ingenuity are fast developing the resources of our springs. We have, in America, all the climatic advantages and mineral springs necessary for the treatment of all the ailments to which mankind is subject, but we have, as well, many which are practically worthless and positively injurious, and against these it is our purpose to protect our readers. It is to aid them in the discrimination between the meritorious and the undeserving that this bureau has been established. We believe the therapeutic value of mineral waters has been long recognized, even since the days of Hippocrates, and oftentimes they are indicated as adjuvant and auxiliary treatment.
The information offered by this bureau includes every detail which the physician and his patient may wish to know. The location, railway facilities, elevation, climate, hotels, mineral springs, and sanitaria will be included in our lists of resorts. We also furnish upon request announcements, rates, and booklets from any institution in the country. The information from this bureau is furnished absolutely free to medical men and their patients, upon request from the docto:
The information is obtained largely by trips of inspection and prrsonal visits. Where this is not possible, the data is obtained from medical men residing in the vicinity of such resorts.
This bureau will also obtain sleeping-car accommodation, procure railroad tickets, and make reservation in hotels or sanitariums in advance for our patrons, if requested.

LOUISIANA. New Orleans. Although New Orleans is not usually classed as a health resort, yet no
one who contemplates a trip to the Southland should miss spending a few days in this quaint old city, if able to do so. New Orleans has been called the “Nice of America," the soft climate ranging from 30 to 60 degrees F. throughout the winter, and rarely exceeding 90 in the summer. As a winter resort it combines all of the happy characteristics of Florida, Mexico and California. A trip to New Orleans would be incomplete without making reservation of rooms at the elegant hostelry, the New St. Charles, which is one of America's finest hotels. This house is the pride of the Crescent City, and a new twelve-story Annex has just been completed, giving it over 500 rooms and accommodation for 1000 patrons The manager, Mr. Andrew R. Blakely, and his son, Mr. Russell Blakely, the assistant manager, are among the bestknown hotel men in America. The "Mardi Gras” festivities in the early springtime attract thousands of visitors from every state.

hilarating. The pine forest which covers the larger part of its surface furnishes that restorative element peculiar to certain favored localities rich in pine forest. The absorbent quality of the light : nd sandy soil prevents dampness, and makes malaria unknown. The elevation-over 2,000 feet-guarantees purity of atmosphere, most potent in its influences upon sufferers from disease, and especially lung, throat and nervous affections. It is a paradise to chil. dren and invalids, and there is no spot in the world where the business and literary man will so rapidly recuperate as upon Lookout Mountain. .

DR. O. B. CAMPBELL, St. Joseph
Medical Society of the Missouri Valley Meets
in St. Joseph, March 22, 23, 1906.
The following is an extract from "The Essentials of Materia
"Scott's Emulsion is indicated in all cases where cod liver oil or the hypophosphites are commonly used. In all instances where we have emaciation the action of Scott's Emulsion is most marked and rapid. In rickets and scrofula its action is more prompt than any remedy known to the profession, and it is relied on with the utmost confidence by the medical profession. Scott's Emulsion is a perfect emulsification of the oil globules, rendered so diminutive as to be quickly taken up by the lacteals. The emulsions made by druggists with mucilage are simply mixtures, and separate on standing. They rarely fail to produce disagreeable eructations or cause vomiting or a persistent dyspepsia that eventually renders it impossible to continue their use. Scott's Emulsion never is followed by results of this character, and is easily digested and pleasant to the palate. It contains no sugar as is the case with some emulsions."
Scott's Emulsion is recognized by authorities the world over as the standard cod liver oil preparation.

pathologio processes may become too greatly advanced and too thoroughly established to permit of successful treatment.
Aoute surgical conditions require prompt surgical intervention, if the best success is attained. At times, disaster may only be averted by timely action.
