In your journal for June Dr. F. M. Kirk asks for a specific for pin worms. The following has been for me a never failing remedy. Make a strong infusion of spearmint and use this once in a day or two as an injection into the rectum. For internal treatment I take of pink root, senna, chenopodium and manna of each one-half an ounce of the herb, and steep these for one hour in one and one-half pints of water. During the course of twenty-four hours I give about four ounces of this infusion in one-half as much new milk sweetened.
