In a case of prolapsus of the bowel, in a child two years old, I prescribed thuja and succeeded in curing the condition completely.

I was consulted by a patient who had a hydrocele, that held more than one pint of fluid. I withdrew the fluid, and injected a solution of thuja, and effected a satisfactory cure.

A patient of mine, Mrs. T., aged fifty, had been subject to attacks of uterine hemorrhage, for some time. I made an examination and found the uterus to be five and a half inches in depth. I prepared injections of thuja, according to the method advised by the late Professor A. J. Howe, and irrigated the uterus at intervals through a period of eight or ten weeks. This treatment reduced the organ to its normal condition, and the woman became quite strong and hearty, able to walk or ride, and to work about the house, in a manner that had been impossible for several years previous.
