FAGOPYRUM AESCULENTUM. Fagopyrum, the common buckwheat, is a neglected remedy, despite the fact that it has been rather extensively proven. Its pathogenesis occupies twenty-four pages in Allen’s Encyclopedia of Pure Materia Medica. An instructive paper on Fagopyrum was read before the American Institute in 1873, by D.C. Perkins of Rockland, Maine, and reprinted in Anshutz’s New, Old and Forgotten Remedies.
HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES INDICATED IN EXOPHTHALMIC GOITRE. The exophthalmos when present for some months may never completely disappear and is more long-lasting in cases where the gland is much enlarged and pressure has taken place. This is true for cases treated by surgery or by medication.

LOST VISION RESTORED. The child then developed pneumonia and had allopathic treatment. His symptoms subsided but, when he got well, it was observed that the child had weak vision and convergent squint. In his 7th year, when the boy was sent to school, it was further observed that he had practically no vision in the left eye, although the eye ball and its appendages were examined and determined to be healthier than the right eye.
