two weeks, and give to children a teaspoonful once a week to once a 

month as a preventive. They will never be troubled with worms as long 

as you do this. 

 

 

DR. JORDAN'S CHOLERA REMEDY. 

 

Take gum guaiac, prickly ash berries (or double as much bark of the 

root), cloves, and cinnamon bark, of each two ounces; gum camphor and 

gum myrrh, of each one ounce; gum kino, half an ounce. Reduce all to a 

coarse powder and add to one quart of best French brandy. Let it stand 

ten days or two weeks to digest, shaking the bottle two or three times 

a day to keep the ingredients from becoming impacted at the bottom; 

then strain and press out, and then take oil anise and oil peppermint, 

of each two drams; alcohol, four ounces. Mix the oils and alcohol 

together in a bottle and shake well till they are cut, then add to the 

former, and it is ready for use. Dose: From one to two teaspoonfuls 

every five, ten, fifteen or thirty minutes, according to the urgency 

of the symptoms. In cholera it should be given frequently, and if 

there are nausea and vomiting small doses are preferable; a single 

teaspoonful every five minutes till urgent symptoms are checked, then 

give it less frequently. It should always be given alone, unmixed with 

anything else. In ordinary diarrhoea, one or two teaspoonfuls taken 

once an hour will be sufficient. It is also an excellent remedy for 

colic and pains in the stomach and bowels, and will generally settle 

the stomach very soon in case of vomiting or nausea. It should always 

be kept in the house. Where it is needed for immediate use, it may be 

made in an hour or less by using alcohol instead of brandy and by 

boiling all in a stone jug, uncorked, by placing the jug in a vessel 

of boiling water, shaking or stirring frequently. 

 

 

PILE OINTMENT. 

 

Take say a teacupful of hog's lard, put in a flat or pewter dish, and 

take two bars of lead, flattened a little, and rub the lard with the 

flat ends and between them till it becomes black or of a dark lead 

color. Then burn equal parts of cavendish tobacco and old shoeleather 

in an iron vessel till charred. Powder these and mix into the lard 

till it becomes a thick ointment. Use once or twice a day as an 

ointment for the piles. An infallible cure. 

 

 

WARTS AND CORNS. 

 

The bark of the common willow burnt to ashes, mixed with strong 

vinegar and applied to the parts, will remove all warts, corns, and 

other excrescences. 

 

 

DEAFNESS. 

 

It is seldom that the power of hearing once entirely lost can ever be 

restored, and not always that even partial deafness can be cured, 

though it may often be relieved. Partial deafness is frequently owing 

to the accumulation and hardening in the ear of the ear wax, which may 

generally be remedied by dropping into the ear such articles as are
