This body, which occurs in acicular, colorless, and

by the formula C6H.C3H,(OCH3)CO,C,H,.
Solubility.-This drug is soluble in alcohol, ether,
chloroform, and acetone; it is insoluble in water.

appears then as a crystalline body having a marked ethereal odor and a
melting-point of I580 to I59 F. (700 to 71 C.). The drug is readily
soluble in ether, but is insoluble in water and chloroform; it is soluble in
