Page 163 - It exerts the full therapeutic influence of sulphate of quinine, in the same doses, without oppressing the stomach or creating nausea.

Page 161 - The chemical manipulation of the Cinchona or Peruvian barks reveals the presence in them of quite a number of most remarkable, complex bodies. No vegetable production, except the poppy, affords such a marvellous combination of valuable medicinal principles as the loxa and calisaya barks, and no substances have been studied with greater care or more intense interest by chemists.
