Abstract

When one examines the pharmacologic portions of the many ponderous volumes composing the index to the Surgeon-General's library, and those of the Index Medicus, by which the former has been succeeded, remembering that a very large part of pharmaceutic literature is not here represented, the conviction is forced upon him that our knowledge of the practical utility of medicinal plants is small beyond all reasonable comparison with the amount of time that has been bestowed upon their study. This fact is not difficult to explain, at least in part. It is largely due to the method, or rather want of method which has prevailed, by which partial investigations have been made by individuals without regard to their relation to the complementary parts, these being left undone, the part performed remaining unutilized and becoming finally buried and forgotten. This neglect has been made farther operative by the habit of investigators of
