CARRIWITCHETS

Punctured wounds in farmhands that have been contaminated from manure should be cleansed thoroughly with sterile water and calendula or ledum tincture in solution. The dressing should be applied with a drain in the wound. Internal remedies may be given, selection made according to the indications. If there is much burning, stinging pain, Apis may be indicated.

CONSTANTINE HERING

From Dresden he was sent upon an expedition to Surinam, a Dutch colony in the north of South America, its purpose being the examination of the interesting flora and fauna there, a commission to which young Hering devoted himself with great enthusiasm. He there made the acquaintance of German missionaries, Moravians, to whom he soon became a friend and medical adviser.

HOMOEOPATHY, THE MEDICAL COURT OF LAST RESORT

Thinking that Homoeopathy, the Medical Court of Last Resort would be a happier title than the announced one of Miracles with Homoeopathic Medicines, I have made the change. I have, however, made no change in contents of the paper, so I need make no apology for repeating a second paper with the latter title.

THE VALUE AND RELATION OF DIET TO OUR HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES

In connection with being made ill by specific articles of food several interesting points arise : Try at first to see whether it is a combination of foods which disagree, or the one given element of diet. A wise professor once told me that almost anyone could eat almost anything if they ate it by itself. Next in the case of certain acids, try giving cream cheese or cottage cheese with them.

WHAT IS SIMILAR

In conclusion I must make mention of the controversy between philosophers in reference to analogy and deductions by analogy. Reasoning by analogy I have always claimed to be the only correct method. It is the golden theory of Pythagoras, by which heaven and earth are unlocked. Nevertheless, like the law of quadrature of triangles, it has been dubbed Pons asinorum by dunces.

EDITORIAL
