ECHINACEA

      Here we have, no doubt, one of the greatest remedies known to Materia Medica, but I wish to impress upon the mind of the pharmacist, as well as the practitioner, that much carelessness is manifest in the gathering and preparation of the drug; insist and know that it is made from the green root, that it is an alcoholic tincture, and that it is Echinacea angustifolia (DeCandolle)     ...
