Analeptic and astringents are of this class which I have taken notice of already; add to these bal-samics and stomachies, of which something remains to be said. Balsamics are hotter and more acrid than analeptics, and they comprehend cephalics as well as antiparalytics. Of this kind are wood of aloes, yellow sanders, and its tincture evaporated to a balsam, ambergrease, amber, benjamin, cane storax, balsam of Tolu, Peru and Capivi, Peruvian bark, cinnamon, cloves, and all spices in general, lavender) rosemary, marjoram, thyme, bawm, volatile spirits, with the essential oil of lavender, rosemary, and spirits and oil of ambar; these are good in diseases of the head, nerves, spinal marrow, stomach and heart: as also, in those diseases wherein the humours are thick, and the tone of the nerves are weakened; as in the apoplexy, palsy, loss of memory, hardness of hearing, and the like. They are likewise good when the stomach abounds with acid crudities; in a bad digestion, a looseness, vomiting, coughs, and in low phlegmatic constitutions. Stomachics are such things as strengthen the tone of the stomach, and comprehend carminatives. These are gentian, galangals, zedoary, wormwood, camomile flowers, calamus aromaticus, orange peel, the Peruvian bark, cinnamon, pepper, ginger, mace, cloves, mint, pepper-mint, myrrh, anniseeds, cummin-feeds, caraway-seeds, fennel-seeds; all bitters and preparations of aloes: Add to these the Spaw and Pyrmont waters. When there is a load of acid undigested crudities in the stomach, use gentian, wormwood, spices; in a loathing, nausea and vomiting, mint or peppermint; for a pain in the stomach, colic, or gripes, fresh orange peel, or dulcified spirit of nitre; when a looseness proceeds from a slipperiness of the intestines, cortex cleutheria. When the stomach and intestines are puffed up with wind, nothing is better than the distiiled oils of caraways and cummin; a few drops may be taken on a lump of sugar.

Sudorifics are such medicines as cause sweating, such as arum or cuckow-pint, a decoction of the woods, extract of guaiac, volatile salts and spirits, Mindererus's spirit, the tincture of snake root, decoction of snake-root, camphire julep, all diaphoretic draughts and bolus's, and the golden sulphur of antimony. Sweating is useful in catarrhs, colds, coughs, rheu-matisms, and tumours of the glands. In diseases of the skin, such as the itch, leprosy, venereal scabs and ulcers, as well as in the flying gout, rheumatism, and in all cold diseases; sweats succeed belt with a sufficient quantity of hot liquor.

In this cafe, the nurse should be very regular in her diet, and the child's body must be kept open with emollient oily clysters, and the gums likewise be anointed with cream or unsalted butter, either alone or mixt with honey; of cut a fig in two and apply to he gums, or calves marrow, or mucilage of quince feeds with a little of the yolk of an egg; but if the teeth cannot break through the skin, the best way will be to cut the membrane with a lancet, which lies on the ends of the teeth. This seldom or never fails of success.
