THERAPEUTIC NOTES ON SULPHUR CREAM, GOOSE GREASE, AND CRUDE PETROLEUM.
BY GEORGE THOMAS JACKSON, M.D.,

Each one of us has some pet formula that he uses habitually in certain cases, but about which he says or writes little if anything, not because he desires to keep it secret, but that he does not think it worth while to bring it to the attention of his fellow workers. This seems to me to be a mistake. Surely we all wish to know of anything that will help us cure our patients, and anything that any member of this Association has found useful can not fail of being of great interest to all of us. For a long time I have thought that it would be extremely profitable to us if we devoted a portion of our time at these meetings to an informal interchange of personal experiences in matters of treatment. It seems to me that it would be time better spent than in listening to the reading of valuable papers that require quiet study to digest and assimilate. Acting on this belief I now venture to say a few words to you about sulphur cream, goose grease, and crude petroleum.
