Cholera Morbus.

In the treatment of cholera morbus, during an experience of fifteen years, I have found the following prescription very reliable: Specific rhus. tox. 15 drops, specific aconite 10 drops, water sufficient to make four ounces. Mix and give a teaspoonful every half hour or hour, as seems to be required. When indicated I alternate dioscorea with the above.

If not contra-indicated, I usually give a hypodermic injection of morphine the first thing. It is seldom I have to make a second call.
