1871. Excerpt: ... evidence before I admit that such a disorder is
not amenable to the curative irritation of some drug, even if it is
caused by a spirit, and purely mechanical. Admit that it is the tap
of a spirit, what matters? It is claimed by spiritualists that the
organism must be in a peculiar and specific condition to be
appreciably affected by such spiritual influences; if so, why
should not drug disorder or irritation change such favorable
psychological condition to one unfavorable If spirits are at the
trouble of tapping on this woman, and drugs will place her in such
a psychological or pathological condition that she cannot perceive,
why give her the drug and let them tap. It can't hurt her, if she
don't perceive it. So, if we admit all that the spiritualist
claims, medication is eminently called for. Ars. is now given
alone, but Puis. should bo continued with it. Ignat. and Puis.30 or
Nux and Ars. are good prescriptions. The next day she wants to get
well, and is more anxious to live for the benefit of the living
than die for the benefit of the dead. There were no more chills.
CASE 209.--June 26, 8 A.m. Harvey S., 61. (1557.) Every other day,
just before noon, has paiu in the bones and a sick, deathlike
feeling all over; pain in the back and hips; appetite good; bowels
regular. Ars. 6 every six hours. Here the malaria is acting on the
posterior spinal column, but not so aa to cause a chill. The
deathlike feeling may be a sympathetic symptom, from disorder of
the solar plexus, in place of heat. Ars. cured it, though
ordinarily the good appetite would contraindicate it. CASE

several days; dull and stupid; no appetite; nausea; ate no
breakfast this morning; sticky sweat, with musty, herby smell; no
