I only add my testimony to a fact that was published in an eclectic medical journal more than a year ago, from Dr. Daniel of Kansas, regarding the use of quinin in rhus poisoning.
During the past eighteen years, I have used a number of remedies with varying success. Since reading Dr. Daniel's article I have used a solution of quinin sulphate exclusively in the treatment of all of my cases, and I have quite a number of these every year.
Some have been really severe and the result in every case has been' all that could be desired. I do not pay much attention to the strength of the solution. It must be strong enough, that's all. I apply it freely. Improvement generally begins after the first few hours.

I have had considerable experience in the use of quinin in rhus poisoning. I use it in the proportion of one ounce of salt to six ounces of water. I have obtained the most beautiful results.
I apply it freely and persistently until beneficial results are obtained.
