Page 14 - The common practice in making poultices of mixing the linseed meal with hot water, and applying them directly to the skin, is quite wrong, because, if we do not wish to burn the patient, we must wait until a great portion of the heat has been lost. The proper method is to take a flannel bag (the size of the poultice required), to fill this with the linseed poultice as hot as it can possibly be made, and to put between this and the skin a second piece of flannel, so that there shall be at least two...

Page 156 - The price-list is an excellent check list, containing the names of all the species, and the more common varieties, arranged alphabetically and preceded by the species number.

In its superiority to the Extract of Malt prepared from Barley alone, I consider Maltine to be all that is claimed for it, and prize it as a very valuable addition to the list of tonic and nutritive agents. CH LEWIS, MD ST. CHARLES, MINN., March 23d, 1879. In conditions of anaemia, in convalescence from severe and protracted disease, especially in chronic cases where there is great general debility, and in the enfeebled conditions of aged persons, I have learned to rely on Maltine,...
Page 16 - XV.— 10 . . .:..: doses of the drugs combined. For several years I have been in the habit of giving in these cases sixty grains of the bromide of potassium and ten drops of the tincture of aconite root, in a wineglassful of water ; the same to be repeated in an hour or two, if the head be not relieved ; but a repetition of the dose is very seldom required. In the case of ladies and others who wish to have the remedy always at hand, or who are about to start on a journey, I supply them with the...

Page 105 - The tongue is redder than usual, often of a bright, florid color, or even rawlooking. It is often pointed at the tip, which, together with the sides, presents an extreme degree of injection, the papillae standing out as vivid red points. This form is often associated...
