SULPHUR. Sometimes Sulphur will rehabilitate bleary-eyed, dirty old drunkards, who have no, or hardly any, appetite; whose livers are going into cirrhosis; who have all good intentions to reform, but who do not seem to be able to resist the awful, gnawing, hollow, burning feeling inside and which is speedily relieved by a strong drink for a time.
EDITORIAL. Many are satisfied and successful using only the crude drug, the 3X, 6X and 12X. The Koch treatment with its occasional brilliant result in cancer uses only the 6X and 12X.
