For the treatment of tympanites, I have depended upon the following formula for nearly thirty years. The results of its action have been highly satisfactory. Several old school physicians to whom I have given the formula have been enthusiastic in praising its effects: Beat together, thoroughly, the yolk of one egg, a pint of milk warm, and half of a dram of the oil of erigeron. This is to be used as an enema in any case of tympanites. I obtained this prescription from the materia medica of the late I. J. M. Goss, M. D., of Atlanta, Ga. He gave credit for the formula to the late E. M. Hale, M. D., of Chicago, a very prominent and successful homeopathist.
