Contractions. - Sulph. Sul.

Common Brimstone. S. For. names: German, Schwe-fel; French, Soufre.

The well-known Flowers of Sulphur carefully washed with distilled water and dried in the air.

Preparations. - Trituration. Solution in absolute alcohol, which must be labelled Tinctura Sulphuris For-tissima.

N.B. - Since a permanent solution of 1 grain of Sulphur cannot be effected at a temperature of 60° F. in less than 2,720 grain measures of absolute alcohol, sp. gr. 0.7979, and precipitation takes place on the least fall of temperature, thereby rendering the solution extremely weak and indefinite in strength, it will be seen that no satisfactory attenuations are obtainable from the above solution. This is the more to be regretted as it is frequently ordered by medical men and found to be useful. In future it will be recognized by the name above given.

Reference to Horn. Proving. - Chr. Kr., v.

Proper forms for dispensing. - 1x to 3, Trituration only. i, dilute Tincture only. 5 and upwards, Tincture, Pilules, or Globules.
