fluids, which are of great value in all diseases, either acute or 

chronic, that are attended or followed by prostration; debility, 

whether general or of certain organs only; derangement of the 

digestive organs, weak stomach, indigestion, heartburn or sour 

stomach, constipated bowels, torpidity or want of activity of the 

liver, thin or poor blood. These fluids are highly nutritious, 

supplying to the blood, in such a form that they are most easily 

assimilated, the various elements which are needed to enrich it and 

thus enable it to reproduce the various tissues of the body that have 

been wasted by disease. In cases where the stomach has become so 

weakened and sensitive that the lightest food or drinks cannot be 

taken without causing much uneasiness and distress these fluids are 

invaluable. They strengthen the stomach and neutralize all undue 

acidity, while at the same time they soothe the irritation by their 

bland and demulcent qualities. When carefully and properly prepared, 

according to the directions following, they very nearly resemble rich 

new milk in color and consistency, while their taste is remarkably 

pleasant. Care should be taken that all the ingredients are of the 

best quality. Soft water must be used in all cases. Fresh rain water 

is to be preferred, but spring water may be used if perfectly soft. 

Hard water will cause the fluids to be of a yellow color, and if the 

milk is old they are apt to separate: 

 

 

FLUID NO. 1. 

 

Put a pint of new milk (the fresher the better) and two pints of soft 

water, in a vessel perfectly free from all greasy matter, over a slow 

fire. Rub two even teaspoonfuls of superfine wheat flour and two 

teaspoonfuls of carbonate of magnesia, together with a little milk, 

into a soft batter, free from lumps; add this to the milk and water as 

soon as they begin to boil. Boil gently for five minutes--_no 

longer_--stirring constantly. Pour into an earthen or glass dish to 

cool, adding at the same time two teaspoonfuls of loaf sugar and one 

teaspoonful each of saleratus and table salt, rubbed fine. Stir until 

cold. The fluid must not be allowed to remain in a metallic vessel of 

any kind, and it must be kept in a cool place. 

 

 

FLUID NO. 2. 

 

Put one pint of fresh milk and two pints of soft water in a vessel 

over a slow fire. Rub together with a little fresh cream into a soft 

batter, free from lumps, one tablespoonful each of good sweet rye 

flour, ground rice, and pure starch; which add to the milk and water 

as soon as they begin to boil. Boil for five minutes, stirring 

constantly. Remove from the fire and add three teaspoonfuls of loaf 

sugar and one teaspoonful each of saleratus and table salt. Observe 

the same precautions as in No. 1. 

 

 

FLUID NO. 3. 

 

Put in a vessel, over a slow fire, one pint of fresh milk and two
