with Europe, take the other continents
and the countries that belong to them.
And then one might come nearer home.
It would be really sad to observe the

Many physicians have a habit of
writing prescriptions without calcu
lating the quantity of medicine their
patients are to take. This leads to a
great waste of drugs and much un
necessary expense. Which leads the
New York Medicrtt Journal to urge
physicians to be more careful.
Another evil result of this far too
common practice, is that partly used
prescriptions are stored away In the
medicine chest, and next time the pa
tient has, or thinks he has, the same
symptoms, he takes what he supposes
to be the same medicine.
But the chief reason why physi
cians should not prescribe four or six
ounces when they know only one or
two will be used, is that It is wasting
the drugs and making the patient pay
