One of the earliest provings was that by A. Noack, in 1839, Journal für Arzneimittellehre, vol. ii, p. 379, who also proved Cinchoninum sulfuricum, in 1842, Hygea, vol. xvi. For other provings see Encyclopedia, vol. iii.
The pernicious and dangerous effects of crude doses of this drug, given in excess, are too well known to need mention. When indicated, as this remedy often is, in the worst forms of intermittent, there is more safety and reliability to be found in the use of the potencies, even the higher, which act promptly and well, than in the use of massive doses. In the words of Dr. H. C. Allen, the author of Therapeutics of Intermittent Fever, which should be in the hands of every homoeopathic practitioner : “There is a wide difference between suppressing and curing a fever paroxysm, or any other disease ; the homoeopath can and ought to cure, not ‘break up’ the chill, ‘suppress,’ or ‘cover up’ the disease.”

Dr. agidi, an old German practitionner, says : “For the precursory stage of cholera, I gave China sulph., 0.01 to 0.06, one dose every evening for eight days. None of the persons thus treated were attacked by cholera. If I ever should live to see another cholera epidemic, I would give China sulph. and ozonized water.”] Enlargement of spleen, 3 cases, Frank, vol. 4 ; Intermittent colic, Elb, Rückert’s Klinische Erfahrungen, vol. 5, p. 364 ; Intermittent diarrhoea, Rückert, K.
