pints of soft water. When they begin to boil, add one tablespoonful of 

wheat flour, two tablespoonfuls of pure starch, and two teaspoonfuls 

of carbonate of magnesia, rubbed, together with a little milk into a 

soft batter, free from lumps. Boil gently for five minutes, stirring 

constantly. Pour into an earthen vessel to cool, and add one 

teaspoonful of the best gum arabic dissolved in a little warm water, 

one teaspoonful each of saleratus and table salt, and one 

tablespoonful of pure strained honey. Stir until cold. The same 

precaution must be observed as in preparing No. 1. 

 

 

DIRECTIONS. 

 

One half pint or less of these fluids may be taken at a dose, and at 

least three pints should be taken during the day and the amount 

gradually increased to two or three quarts. Commence with No. 1 and 

use two weeks, then use No. 2 for the same length of time, after which 

No. 3 is to be used for two weeks. Continue their use as long as 

necessary, taking each for two weeks before changing. In all the 

diseases mentioned above, the use of these fluids, in connection with 

proper remedies, will insure a speedy restoration to health. 

 

 

GUM ACACIA RESTORATIVE. 

 

Take two ounces of pure white gum arabic (procure the lump, the 

powdered is very apt to be adulterated), pulverize it well, and 

dissolve by the aid of a gentle heat in a gill of water, stirring 

constantly. When it is entirely dissolved, add three tablespoonfuls of 

pure strained honey. Let it remain over the fire until it becomes of 

the consistency of a jelly. The heat must be very gentle, it must not 

boil. If desirable, flavor with lemon or vanilla. This will be found a 

very pleasant article of diet for a weak stomach. When the articles 

used are pure it will be transparent and of a light golden color. This 

will be borne by the weakest stomach when everything else is rejected. 

_It is highly nutritious._ 

 

 

MALT INFUSION. 

 

Infuse one pint of ground malt for two hours in three pints of 

scalding water. The water should not be brought quite to the boiling 

point. Strain; add sugar, if desired; flavor with lemon juice. This is 

an excellent drink in inflammatory fevers, acute rheumatism, etc. 

 

 

PEAS. 

 

Take young and fresh shelled green peas, wash them clean, put them 

into fresh water, just enough to cover them, and boil them till they 

take up nearly all the water. This dish, if prepared according to 

directions, and eaten warm, will not harm any invalid, not even one 

suffering from diarrhoea. 

 

 

MILK. 

 

In some cases where a milk diet is advisable, owing to the peculiar 

condition of the patient's stomach it will cause distress. This is 

frequently the case where there is undue acidity. In such cases, let
