The Recent Epidemics of Small-pox and Diphtheria Would certainly not have attained such proportions if. the hygienic fact were more generally known that the disinfection of the mouth by a reliable and harmless antiseptio is a great protecting factor against all aiU menta where the infection is through the hroat or respiratory traot. By putting threeS drops of SANDER'S EUCALYPTI EXTACT, on apiece of loaf-sugar, and allowing it to dissolve in the mouth, that cavity ie thoroughly disinfected.. The volatile nature of SANDER'S EXTRACT makes it penetrate i crevice, SANDER'S EXTRACT ie npt nauseous nor depressing like the oommpn eucalyptus, and possesses great antigeptio power, • By using SANDER'S EATRAQT you avoid the uncertain composition of the ogenge; you have the benefit of the trongeet antiseptic that oan be used with afety, and the result la protection from all nfeotion,,
