Research Facts
A cheap French microscope for classroom use manufactured in thousands between 1870 and 1900. This artefact is part of a set of surgical instruments belonging to Dr. Weston L. Herriman, who was one of the first nine students who graduated in 1855 from the newly formed School of Medicine at the Church of Scotland-affiliated University of Queen's College (1854, Kingston, Ont.). The nine senior students had transferred from the Anglican Upper Canada School of Medicine (Toronto) to the new school at Queen's.

Research Facts
Active principle of Cod Liver Oil is extracted and it can act by inducing Hyperalimentation; Clinical experiments in the Paris Hospitals show that Creosote combined with Morrhuol gives the happiest results where there is tuberculosis with corresponding defective nutrition; Pure Creosote with Morrhuol will considerably assist assimilation of the Creosote.
