In presenting this paper, I do not claim to offer anything strikingly
new, but it is my purpose to direct anew your attention for thoughtful consideration
to one of the most valuable drugs of our newer materia medica. This drug has
been known to the profession of this country now for nearly twenty years,
but notwithstanding this fact, its medicinal virtues are not generally known
among general practitioners, and few of those who use it fully appreciate
its capabilities. The drug to which I refer is kola—the seed, or nut,
of Sterculia acuminata.
