The accompanying illustration shows one of the latest improvements in the hypodermic syringe. The case is of aluminum and is curved to fit the body when carried in the vest pocket. It may be sterilized by boiling. The piston packing is of rubber and is greatly superior to asbestos which shreds, and to leather which has a tendency to harden. The packing may be speedily renewed by any one. This case was designed by the Mulford Company and is supplied with two reinforced needles and eight tubes of selected hypodermic tablets.
