it is suitable in old prolonged cases of inflammation of the kneejoint, of rheumatic knee-joint. You will find such patients sitting with the joint exposed to the cold, fanning the joint, or putting evaporating lotions upon the joint, such as chloroform, or ether, which give relief to the joints while evaporating to dryness.
Benz > relationships
Compare: Benzin. - Petroleum Ether - not as pure a compound as Benzene (Benzinum). It is the same, but with a mixture of hydrocarbons. It seems to exercise a special influence on the nervous system and on the blood. Oxyhaemoglobinaemia. Physical weakness, cramps, exaggeration of knee jerks, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, Heaviness and coldness of limbs. Tremor of eyelids and tongue. Benzin. dinitricum - D.n.b. - (The most obvious results of poisoning by skin absorption are changes in the red blood corpuscles and liver degeneration in amblyopia, color-blindness, retinitis.

Chlf > general
Chloroform is the well-known anesthetic, the general effects of which in arresting sensation need no description. Unlike Ether and Nitrous oxide, which require to be administered without air, chloroform vapour must have abundance of air inhaled with it, or asphyxia results. Its most noteworthy effect is complete relaxation of all the voluntary muscles of the body. It may cause death by paralysing the respiration or the heart. Its use is contraindicated where there is brain softening.
Chol > general
Cholesterine is a substance crystallising in leaflets with a mother-of-pearl lustre and a fatty feel. It is soluble in alcohol and ether. It occurs in the blood and brain, yolk of eggs, seeds and buds of plants, but most abundantly in the bile and biliary calculi. Ameke, who did much to introduce the proximate principles of the tissues as remedies, anticipating the practice now so much in vogue in the old school, recommended Cholesterine as a remedy in cancer of the liver. Burnett has recently adduced conclusive evidence in support of the correctness of this assertion.
Kali-cy > general
but it has also been proved by Lembke and others. The apoplectic and epileptic symptoms of Hydrocy. ac. were reproduced in the salt, and one very pronounced symptom was slow breathing. Loss of consciousness and vision occurred, and as consciousness and vision returned, vision was double. Strong tetanic convulsions. In one poisoning case the fingers were stretched out and spasmodically contracted. In another case, after the failure of all efforts to restore the patient (a photographer) with ether injections and repeated washings out of the stomach, he was placed in a hot bath and ice-cold water was poured over head and nape. Each time water was poured on his head, the patient drew deep inspirations, which gradually grew deeper and more regular till consciousness was restored. He complained of sharp occipital and gastric pains. Convalescence was rapid, but a general muscular weakness and impairment of speech lasted a long time (C. D. P.). The chief clinical uses recorded of K. cy. have been in epithelioma of the tongue, apoplectic and epileptic conditions, respiratory disorders, rheumatism of the joints, and neuralgias. Cattell recorded in the early volumes of the Brit. Jour. of Homoeopathy (xi. 348) several remarkable cases of neuralgia cured by K. cy. I quote them from Hering's Guiding Symptoms "Agonising attacks of neuralgic pains between temporal regions and ciliary arch and maxilla, with screaming and apparent loss of sensibility, as if struck with apoplexy.
Ter > general
causes lumbar pain, burning in urethra, painful micturition, haematuria. Among the uses of Ter., Brunton mentions the treatment of biliary colic. For this it is given in ether in the proportion of one part of the Oil of Turpentine to three of Ether. Homoeopaths have confirmed the value of this. Throughout this list of effects burning is a constant note, and gives the key to many cases calling for Ter.
Curc-p-s > general
An excellent remedy for tapeworm which may be given with safety to children. The seeds are scalded. The outer skins being softened are peeled off, the green inner pulp being the part used. Two ounces of the seeds, yielding an ounce of the pulp, should be used for each patient. The pulp should be rubbed in a mortar or some other vessel to make a smooth mass. It may be mixed with milk or cream, and sweetened and taken like porridge. It should be taken in the morning after a twelve to sixteen hours' fast, and be followed in two hours by a castor-oil purge. Hale's method is as follows The patient to eat but little of the lightest food all day, take no supper, and on going to bed eat one ounce of the peeled seeds, bruised with milk or cream. In the morning on waking, to take a tablespoonful of castor oil, mixed with half a teaspoonful of pure Sulphuric ether. No breakfast to be taken
Queb > general
Quebracho is a Brazilian fever remedy from which the alkaloid Astidospermine has been isolated. This is in small, very brilliant, white crystals, sparingly soluble in water, readily soluble in alcohol and ether. Hale says Queb. produces in animals respiratory paralysis, slowed heart, and paralysis of extremities. It relieves dyspnoea in phthisis and pleurisy, but without influencing the fever. The 1x relieved asthma with livid face.
Thio > general
Thios. belongs to the same chemical group as Urea. The colourless bitter crystals are soluble in water, alcohol, and ether. Thios. has been used externally and internally in cases of lupus, chronic glandular tumours, and for dissolving scar tissue.
Salo > general
Salol was primarily used as an anti-rheumatic, especially in the treatment of acute cases. It was given as an antipyretic, in 30 to 45 grain doses, in powders or tablets. It is soluble in ether and petroleum spirit.

But, as I am melting through the purification of that sublime ecstasy into oneness with the Deity himself, one by one those pealing lyres faint away, and as the last throb dies down along the measureless ether, visionless arms swiftly as lightning carry me far into the profound, and set me down before another portal.

I touched my tongue with the cork moistened with the 1st cent. dil., but experiencing no effects beyond that which usually follows the application of Alcohol or Ether to the tongue, I put 2 drops into my mouth At first I felt a kind of sweet and burning sensation, and soon afterwards a sense of fulness in head and slight tightness about throat, but without nausea or faintness. In a minute or two these effects went off, and could not help thinking that they were partially due to imagination. I now took 5 drops more, and as these did not cause any increased uneasiness, I took in the course of a few minutes 10 more drops. Being at the time quite alone, I became somewhat alarmed lest I should have taken an overdose, and very soon my pulse rose to above 100. The fulness in head and constriction in throat I thought were more marked than before. In a minute or two my courage returned, and the pulse soon fell to 90. The fulness in head lasted some time, and was followed by a slight headache. I took a drop of pure Glonoin by degrees, and found that on bringing it in contact with the tongue it at first gave rise to a sweet flavor, which was rapidly followed by a most disagreeable acrid burning sensation, lasting several minutes. Immediately after taking the drop the pulse was 105. I imagined, too, that I felt fulness in head and some tightness about, throat; but as the effects gradually passed off in the course of a few minutes, I thought they were most probably due to fear and imagination. March 29th, at 12.45 P.M.; my pulse being 80 and my breathing 22, I took a solution containing 1 part of Glonoin to 6 3/4 of spirit, a quantity equal to 1/6 drop of pure Glonoin. At 1 P.M. pulse was 90. I felt some fulness in head and slight tightness about throat. At 1.5 P.M. I took 1/3 drop of pure Glonoin. In three minutes more pulse was 98. At 1.16 P.M. I took 1/2 drop, and in four minutes afterwards, my attention having been directed to another subject, the pulse was 94. At 1.30 P.M. I took a drop of pure Glonoin, and in six minutes the pulse was 106. In ten minutes more, when I had become convinced that I ran no risk, the pulse fell to 78, the breathing being 18. The effect on the heart's action I consider to be entirely due to fear. The head and neck symptoms are too constant to be attributed to the same cause, though I have no doubt the imagination exaggerates them,
