Drops Of Life

One oz. Gum Opium, one drm. Gum Kino, forty grs. Gum

Camphor, one-half ounce Nutmeg powdered, one pint French Brandy. Let

stand from one to ten days. Dose, from 30 to 40 drops for an adult;

children, half doses. This is one of the most valuable preparations in

the Materia Medica, and will in some dangerous hours, when all hope is

fled, and the system is racked with pain, be the soothing balm which

cures the most dangerous disease to which the human body is

liable--flux, dysentery and all summer complaints.
