Authority. Dr. M. E. Lazarus, N. Am. J. of Hom., 4, 352, provings in a married woman aged nineteen, with the 1st and 3d dils.

Depression of spirits, not deep, but quite remarkable during both provings, in the evening.

giving place to a prompt decided reaction into increased cheerfulness and buoyancy during the interval between the two provings.

not so as yet after the second proving, with the first dilution, when melancholy has continued for a fortnight after discontinuing the drug.

Pricking sensation over the body, especially over the loins and lower limbs, as from suppressed perspiration.

on the fourth of the first proving and the eleventh of the second these itchings are most troublesome.

but they last throughout both provings, and continue to develop themselves after discontinuing the drug.

this whole series has been thoroughly marked.

The throat is sore, without catarrhal angina.

swallowing is not difficult, but troublesome.

much tickling and scraping is felt, only on the left side, worse when she lies down and swallows the saliva, then both eyes, especially the left, tingle painfully and fill with tears (probably from irritation of the submucous glands), (eleventh day).

Calorific functions depressed, chilliness, which the heat of the fire did not remove, not intense.

observed during the third and fourth days of first proving, and several times during the second, not followed by any febrile reaction, unless we may so consider hot flushes over the head and face, after going to bed on the third night, and a few times since.
