Cures of Early Days.
S Some Idea of the state of the medl
cal profession ln he early colonial pe
in riod of America can be gained by read
, tlag a prescription recommended by
Sir Keaelm Digby, an eminent Eng
lish writer, to John Winthrop, Jr., in
- 1656. The medicine was for "miracu
w lous cures In all sorts of vicers, and
7 by knitting soddainly broken bones."
Here is the prescription:
"Beate to subtle pouder one ounce
of crabbes eyes, then putt upon it
in a high glass (because of the Ebulll
tion) four ounces of strong vinegar.
k- It will instantly boyle up extremely;
let it stand till all be qulett; then
n strain it through a fine linon; and of
this liquor (which will then taste like
dead beere without any sharpness)
give two spoonfuls art a time to
drink three times; and you shall see 4
a strange efect in a weeke or two."
Meaning of Word "Already."
ad The word "already" means "by this
Do or that time; previously to," or "at I
some specified time," or "the time pres
ent, thus early ; even then," or "even I
now"; as, "He has already perforimed
the task."-The Correct Word by Jo
sephine Turh Baker.
Chinese Have Leaning Buddha.
- The Leaning Buddha is a Chinese
rival of the tower of Pian. This
Twelfth century pagoda, near Nan
s, king, is 100 feet high. of thirteen
0; stories, and Inclines twelve feet from
S. the perpeandicular.
