CANCER, to cure (2)

Externally apply the following; simmer cicuta leaves till they are soft, then mix them with slippery elm bark, to form a poultice; apply morn and night. It is valuable.-Or apply the irritating plaster, for a continual discharge must be kept up, as long as the patient is able to bear it. The douch bath has been recommended, and doubtless it has had a good effect in many cases. The following applications are useful;-
Cayenne and Lobelia Seed, equal quantities, powdered; Meadowfern and Balm of Gilead buds, of each 3oz. (these two steeped in spirits for five or six days, and made into ointment, with lard sufficient.) Unite the whole as a paste, and apply to the cancer, covering with a cloth. When the plaster is taken off wash with soapsuds.-Or burn a quantity of red oak bark to ashes, and make into lye. Boil the lye till it becomes as thick as honey. Such preparations, by their stimulating and relaxing properties, excite a preternatural discharge, or cause a sloughing of the ulcer, and thus remove or lessen it. Use one of these ointments principally, the Black Salve occasionally, and after much discharge, dress with an emollient ointment. This treatment has effect numerous cures. (See Black Salve.)

CANCER, to cure (1)

To CURE, remove debility, and improve the general health. Regulate the bowels, and give an emetic. Give a vapour bath made of bitter herbs, as camomile, hops, catnep, tansy, &c. and boiling water and vinegar. Occasionally rub the whole surface of the body with the following liniment; -- Cayenne, a tea-spoonful; salt, two tablespoonfuls; pour upon them half a pint of boiling water; infuse an hour longer, stirring occasionally. Steaming with the bitter herbs, combined as above, allays the pain, swelling and inflammation. The following pills will be of much use; Bloodroot, 1½ drachm; extract of dandelion, 3 drachms; lobelia seed, 1 drachm; cayenne, 1 drachm; senna, in powder, 1 drachm; add 3 drops of oil of mint and form into pills.

A cancer is a hard indolent tumour, usually seated in some of the glands, as the armpits, eye, nose, lips, tongue, womb, and the female breast; the two last are most subject to it. It affects the aged more than the young, and may exist for years. It commences with a small hard tumour, increasing slowly, and attended with acute shooting pains; sooner or later ulceration sets in. The discharge is so acrid as to inflame the part with which it comes in contact. The place where cancer occurs assumes a purplish appearance previous to its ulceration. Ulceration gives ease for a time, but the cancer spreads deeper and spread wider, corrupting the stream of life, and reducing to the greatest debility, and often terminating in death.

Nine parts of well-dried and finely powdered chlorate of potash, mixed with three parts of finely powdered galls, will make a highly explosive compound. Do not mix it in a mortar, as it would explode, but by means of passing through a brass sieve. The strength of common gunpowder may be increased by working up with the powdered meal about 12 per cent. of powdered galls, and regranulating it.

SUCKING PIG, to roast

Get it when just killed; this is of great advantage. Let it be scalded. Put some sage, crumbs of bread, salt and pepper, into the belly, and sew it up. Observe to skewer the legs back or the under part will not crisp. Lay it to a brisk fire till dry; then rub the pig with butter in every part. Dredge flour over it; scrape off the flour with a blunt knife, rub it well with a buttered cloth, and take off the head while at the fire. Then take it up, cut it down the back and belly, lay it into the dish, and chop quickly the sage and bread very fine, and mix plenty of melted butter and a little flour. Put the sauce into the dish after the pig has been split down the back, and garnished with the ears and two jaws. Many now serve a sucking pig whole. Put the gravy into the sauce; and garnish with lemon or bread sauce and currants.
