Bronchial Coughs.

I have used with much confidence, in bronchitis and in bronchial coughs, the result of colds, which were accompanied with a slight rise in temperature, a combination of specific asclepias and the sweet spirits of niter.

I combine the two remedies in the proportion of one part of asclepias and two parts of the spirits of niter, and give a half teaspoonful every hour or two as seems to be needed, adding it, at the moment of giving it, to a reasonable quantity of water.
