In some cases (spoken of in the Organon, ? 169 & 170) where two medicines appear to correspond to a ease one of them to one group, the other to another group, we may suggest that after the one has been given and overcame one part of the complex of symptoms, the other might be given next to overcome the
others.

such an indicated succession, the first medicine of the two appears to be indicated again, the symptoms having so changed, or the former group of symptoms indicating it being returned, and after it the second asain, for the same reason, neither of the two being fully indicated, only both seem to cover
the case. Such cases have been the offspring of the doctrine of alternate medicines. Both together being out of question as, then, they ought to have been proved together. After a certain succession has been of a good etfect more than once, it may be considered excusable of a similar good result, but never have we the slightest excuse to to suppose a repetition might be

suppose such a thing a priori. As an example of the worst kind we may mention the alternation of Aconit. and Belladonna in scarlet fever, which has proved to be the most absurd and most injurious in innumerable cases, because Aconit. rarely, if ever, is indicated in scarlet fever, even not in the beginuin"', when it may lessen the fever, and the fever being of course beneficial, spoil the case. Belladonna and Rhus have been really indicated in scarlet fever and have been given one after the other, and in

many cases with benefit alternately but since we know when to give Calcarea or when Ammonium, we do not depend any more on such miserable makeshifts. Alternation is thus among true Homoeopathicians to be understood as Hahnemann understood it, and never to be decided on a priori. C.Hg.

Still a beginning had to be made in order to find out which are useful and which not, and to know which comparisons we had to make only in our own mind (as we do in other natural sciences.) This is our great aim, and to come nearer to it the work of Gross is a stepping-stone, a transition. As a selection had to be made, it seems that Dr. Gross took Aconitum and Pulsatilla on the one hand, and Sulphur and Arsenicum on the other, and added gradually what he considered next to most important. Here are about five hundred comparisons of one hundred of our most generally used drugs.

REMARKS BY THE EDITOR.

Abridgments had to be resorted to so as to make the work less extensive and They will not puzzle the reader if he consults the opposite line or other places where there was space to spell the word out in its full length. "Pred., Predom., Predonoinantly," is explained bj the author in his introduction; it always means that the respe-ctive medicine has the respective symptom or modality far more than its opposite and is therefore to be preferred if the same is the case with the patient; but it is not to be used e.xclusively, i. e. the opposite may also come in use, being not a contra-indication, provided there are enough of other characteristics besides to confirm the choice.

The burning pain which both remedies have, and both more in the nisrht, predom. in Arsenic in the stomach and abdomen and in Carb. veg. in the chest, while coughing; we find it in Arsenic predom. in external parts and the skin in Carb. veg. internally however, Arsen. has a burning sensation in all the veins, and Carb. veg. sometimes externally, as for instance on the umbilicus. Arsen. has burnins pain in the eyes, on the external ear, on the tongue, in the mouth, throat, pit of the stomach, the loins, bladder, urethra, breast-bone, the third finger; Carb. veg. has it in the head, on the ear-lap, cheeks, roof of mouth, fauces, in the neck, on the back, shoulders, upper C.Hg. arm, elbow, fore-arm, thigh, knee, and soles of the feet.

* Both rempdies cured the bad effects from drinking >ce-water because these are .similar to those of putrid matter. C.Hg. This remark is applicable also to Cau-^licnm, Phosphor, t Probably only because coffee is generally dr;ink icunn Sepia; le-s to Be'lladoDDa, Pulsatilla, and Mercury because narcotics, in general, are a simile to coffee, and Mercary symptoms are quite as often aggrav. by cold as by warm diet.

Platina, on the connose, only in the morning trary, has decidedly more headache in the evening, from afternoon 4 until evening 10 o'clock; burning heat of the face and redness, with quivering before the eyes, from 5 till 9 o'clock; particularly also increase of mental symptoms in the evening, before going to bed.

N.B. In accordance with the character of increased susceptibility, which is peculiar to Cantharides, this remedj- lacks the sensation of numbness in sutfering parts peculiar to Lycop. N.B. Dr. LuDLAM, on diphtheria, calls our attention to Cantharides in cases where the patient has urinary difficulties, too copious or difficult micturition, the urine containing shreds or casts of the
uriniferous tubuli, shows extreme prostration, sinkins, death-like turns, particularly if there appears a rash upon the skin or under (shining through) the epidermis. As Lycop. also has the urinary difficulty and according to Dr. Raue (Lecture on Diphtheria), the latter is indicated when the fauces have a darkish hue, worse on the right side, which is not unsimilar to Cantharides, we may be able to decide by Ludlam's other characteristics, or by the following of Dr. Raue, f jf Lycop. (worse from swallowing warm drinks, has to breathe through the mouth, or dilates the nostrils with every inspiration, the child is naughty, cross, kicks, awaking from a nap) ; but in cases where such symptoms are not given, we may use the difl'erential comparison with advantage.

all our medicines Carbo vegetabilis is, according to its symptoms, the most similar to the characteristic symptoms of yellow fever, as much so as Sulphur corresponds to the characteristics of Asiatic cholera. Hence each remedy respectively, when it can be given in time, is t)est <riven in the first symptoms of tliese epidemics, in order to reduce each case at least to a milder form an immense advantage. It is worthy of note that charcoal would put an end to the spreading of yellow fever, if tlie excrements of each patient, and every corpse, were covered by coarse charcoal powder ; but whether the internal use of it will prevent the disease with individuals has not yet been ascertained. Sulphur prevents Choi, asiat, with individuals, if the finest powder, called milk of Sulphur, is put into the stockings, so as to come in contact Avith the soles of the f"eet a pinch a day is sufficient to cause a gentle pouring out of sulphurated hydrogen through the pores of the ekin, all over the body, blackenin<r bright silver. But whether the substance which carries the disease is destroyed by it, has not been ascertained yet. C.Hg.

N.B. The aggravation of Cinchona-complaints, when lying on back, is apparently contradicted by two recenf cures (one of prolaps. uteri, and the other of Empyema). However, we cannot attach great importance to these cases, as lying on belly became unbearable on account of mechanical conditions. Neither can we attach importance to another cure with Cmchona, where bending the head back (when lying on belly) relieved relatively, because only in this way the patient could avoid lying on back, aud also avoid the aggrav. caused by enveloj^ iug the head (with the bedding).
