generally. As a purgative the dose is from two to four pills for a 

grown person, and as an alterative and substitute for blue mass and to 

act on the liver, one pill once a day or every other day. 

 

 

ANTI-DYSPEPTIC PILLS. 

 

Take Socotrine aloes, two drams; colocynth, gamboge, rhubarb, and 

castile soap, each one dram; cayenne, thirty grains; oil cloves, 

thirty drops. Make into one hundred and twenty pills with extract of 

gentian or dandelion. Dose: For dyspepsia, inactive liver or 

costiveness, one or two pills once a day; as a cathartic, three to 

five pills at a dose. This is a splendid pill. It cleanses the 

stomach, gives tone and energy to the digestive organs, restores the 

appetite, excites the liver and other secretory organs, without 

causing any debility. 

 

 

ANOTHER ANTI-DYSPEPTIC PILL. 

 

Take Quevenne's powdered metallic iron, forty grains; rhubarb, twenty 

grains; extract of nux vomica, one grain. Triturate well in a small 

mortar, so as to mix them perfectly, and make into twenty pills with 

extract of boneset or gentian. Take one pill before each meal. This is 

one of the best anti-dyspeptic pills known. 

 

 

DYSPEPTIC LEY. 

 

Take hickory ashes, one pint; soot, three or four ounces; boiling 

water, two quarts. Pour on in a suitable vessel or crock, stir, and 

let stand, over night, then pour off clear and bottle. Dose: Half a 

teacupful three times a day, and if too strong weaken with water until 

palatable. A sure remedy for dyspepsia. 

 

 

AGUE PILLS. 

 

Take quinine, twenty grains; piperine, ten grains; Dover's Powder, ten 

grains; cayenne, ten grains. Mix, pulverize, and make into twenty 

pills with a little gum arabic or extract of gentian or boneset. To be 

taken at the rate of one pill an hour when there is no fever, or 

during intermission, until twelve pills are taken, the balance to be 

taken on the third day or next well day. Good as a remedy for the 

chills or fever and ague. 

 

 

CERTAIN REMEDY FOR THE AGUE OR INTERMITTENT FEVER. 

 

Take quinine, twelve grains; ipecac and cayenne, of each six grains; 

pulverized opium, three grains. Make into twelve pills with 

precipitated extract of Peruvian bark, or if you cannot get this, use 

either extract of dogwood or boneset, sufficient to form into pill 

mass. Two or three pills to be taken every two or three hours, during 

the well day or intermission, till all are taken. A very certain and 

effectual remedy for the ague or intermittent fever. 

 

 

FEVER POWDER. 

 

Take finely pulverized gum myrrh, bloodroot, and lobelia seed, or 

ipecac, of each half an ounce; gum camphor and nitre, of each two 

drams. Pulverize, mix, and rub well together in a mortar, and bottle 

for use. Dose: Three to five grains every hour of two during fever.
