Page 267 - ... stomach. It is best to begin with grains, and rise gradually to drachms, or even several ounces daily. Dr. Roth gives the preference to the form of electuary, with proportional additions of the aromatic powder, or Dover's powder, as correctives. In the formula employed in the Hospital of the Charite at Berlin, half an ounce of powdered indigo, rubbed up with a few drops of water, is mixed with half a drachm of aromatic powder, and one ounce of simple syrup, and to be taken in divided doses in...
Page 64 - Provided that no person shall be admitted to any such examination for a certificate to practise, unless he shall have served an apprenticeship, of not less than five years, to an apothecary...
Page 166 - That, from and after the first day of August, 1815, it shall not be lawful for any person or persons (except persons already in practice as such), to practice as an Apothecary in any part of England or Wales, unless he or they shall have been examined by the Court of Examiners, or the major part of them, and have received a Certificate of his or their being duly qualified to practise as such, from the said Court of Examiners...
Page 87 - The barren pine is not less extraordinary. It also grows on sapless trees, and never on the ground. Its seeds are furnished, on the crown, with a long filmy fibre, like the thread of gossamer. As they ripen, they are detached, and driven with the wind, having the long thread streaming behind them. When they meet with the obstruction of a withered branch, the thread is caught, and revolving round, the seed at length comes into fixed contact with the surface, where it soon vegetates, and supplies the...
Page 8 - Should then the chloride of magnesium, or that of manganese, be a stronger acid than the chloride of sulphur, or chloride of phosphorus? How is it consistent with these ideas that we can obtain crystallized salts as well with, as without water, of combination, composed of chloride of calcium and of oxalate, or of acetate of lime? Should the oxysalt be here the acid, or the base ? I have now displayed to you, the considerations which have guided me, and which I think are not destitute of foundation....
Page 162 - And whereas much mischief and inconvenience has arisen, from great numbers of persons in many parts of England and Wales exercising the functions of an Apothecary, who are wholly ignorant, and utterly incompetent to the exercise of such functions, whereby the Health and Lives of the Community are greatly endangered ; and it is become necessary that provision should be made for remedying such evils...

Page 7 - The difference between the oxisalts, and the halosalts is very easily illustrated by formulae. In K|FF — fluoride of potassium, there is but one single line of substitution, that is to say, that of K]FF, whilst in KOOOOS (sulphate of potash) there are two, K|OOOOS and KO|OOOS of which we use the first in replacing one metal by another, for instance, copper by iron ; and the second in replacing one oxide by another. I do not know what value you may attach to this deve* In the Berzelian symbols,...
Page 7 - N,t imitates simple halogen bodies, and gives a salt with potassium and other metals. The hydrated oxacids, agreeably to this view, would be then hydracids of a compound halogen body, from which metals may displace hydrogen, as in the hydracids of simple halogen bodies. Thus we know that SO3...
