This begins with shivering and shaking, which is succeeded with heat, griping of the guts, slimy stools, and violent pain. There is a pressing down, or seeming de-scent of all the bowels at every stool. In process of time, the stools are mixt with blood, and afterwards pure blood only comes away, which is followed by an incurable gangrene. When this is taken in time, the patient must first be blooded, and afterward take a vomit with twenty grains of ipecacuanha, drinking a large quantity of warm water after it. This mull be sometimes repeated : but some think it better to give only five grains at a time, and to repeat it twice or thrice the same day, till a vomiting or purging comes on, or the ipecacuanha will be rendered more purgative, with a grain or two of emetic tartar. The next day give two scruples or a dram of good rhubarb: this purge must be repeated the next day or the following. No opiates must be given till after the patient has been vomited and purged; then "Take seven ounces of small cinnamon water, "one ounce of strorng cinnamon water, two drams of the com-"pound powder of bole with opium; mix them." Give a spoonful or two of this on the days rhubarb is omitted; and the same night at bed-time. But if the cafe is very bad, omiting all other medicines, give seven grains of the cerated glass of antimony every other day, but let the patient drink nothing after it, unless he his sick and disposed to vomit, and then allow him warm water, as in other vomits. Sometimes one dose will cure, and at other times, several are required. The patient may take water gruel, chicken broth, and a little harts-horn jelly now and then. Bloody Urine, is commonly called pissing of blood, which comes away either with or without urine, when the vessels of the kidneys or bladder are enlarged or broken. When pure blood comes away suddenly without pain, it proceeds from the kidneys, or when it is coffee coloured, for then it precedes a fit of the gravel. When there is a heat and pain in the pubes, at the same time that the blood is of a dark colour, it comes from the bladder. Bloody urine may be caused by a stoppage of the bleeding piles by violent "motions of the body, especially riding; by stones wounding the kidneys, ureters or bladder, from erosions and ulcers of the bladder, from sharp diuretics, especially can-tharides.

When the patient is full of blood, or any usual evacuation of blood has been suppressed, it will be necessary to bleed in the arm, and to take nitre, as directed in the bleeding of the nose. The body must be kept open with rhubarb and cream of tartar If the disorder does not cease, let the patient drink three half pints of lime water in a day. If the bleeding is excessive, take the powder mentioned in the bleeding of the nose. Otherwise, astringents, that lock the blood up in the vessels, should be forborne. When there is purulent matter mixt with the blood, there is an ulcer in the kidneys or bladder, and then the best remedy is tar water.

Boils; these are so well known, they need no description. Some, when they begin to appear, use applications to drive them back, which is a very dangerous practice. The best way is to draw them to a head, and then open them. This may be done with diacyhlon with the gums, or the following poultice: "Take "four ounces of figs, two ounces of yellow basilicon, and half "an ounce of strained galbanum; beat the figs to a pulp "with a little wine or strong beer; then add the basilicon and "galbanum melted together, and mix them well." When the boil is quite ripe, which may be known by its yellow head, it may be opened with a lancet or a pair of scissars, and when all the matter is discharged, then it may be cover'd with dry lint, and a plaster over that to keep it on; by which means it will soon heal. When infants are troubled with boils, the nurse should be purged, and the infant take a few grains of the compound powder of crab's claws, three times a day.
