According to Jenner, the origin of cow-pox is infection of the udders of cows by contact with grass on which a horse infected with “Grease” has trodden. This assertion is to some extent confirmed by the experience of homoeopaths, who have found in *Maland. a very effectual protection against infection with small-pox and against vaccination. Straube made provings of the 30th potency (H. R., xv. 145, H. W., xxxv. 504). It has been used on inferential grounds with great success in ill effects of vaccination (l have cured with it cases of unhealthy, dry, rough skin remaining for years after vaccination), in small-pox, measles, and impetigo. Burnett has cured with it a case of knock- knee in a child who was constantly handling his penis. Burnett’s indications are: “Lower half of body, greasy skin and greasy eruption. Slow pustulation, never ending, as one heals another appears.” Impetigo, ecthyma, fat, greasy-looking pustular eruptions are particularly acted on by this remedy. Heath (Amer. Hom., xxiv. 141) has cured with *Maland. 30 fistula in a pony’s neck, following strangles. A. L. Marcey (H. R., xiv. 530) relates a striking experience with *Maland. 30. In the presence of a small-pox epidemic he vaccinated himself, taking at the same time *Maland. 30 night and morning. The vaccination did not take. It was twice repeated and still did not take, nor was small-pox contracted. Called to vaccinate four children in a family whose parents were recovering from small-pox, he vaccinated all and gave *Maland. 30 to *three of them at the same time, the remaining child was the only one whose vaccination “took.” This was so severe that *Maland. had to be given to modify its intensity, which it did effectually. The other three were re- vaccinated but none “took.” Of five children, from six to seventeen years of age, only the eldest had been vaccinated, and he had a good scar. All except the eldest were given *Maland. and were vaccinated, and none of the four “took.” The eldest took small-pox. *Maland. was then given, and in a few days he was convalescent. In another case of small-pox *Maland. was given, and the disease only lasted a few days, the eruption drying up. In Straube’s proving the symptoms were worse in evening. The Schema is made up of Straube’s symptoms. Burnett considers Maland. a very deeply acting remedy, and one not to be repeated oftener than once a fortnight.
