I think of the apparently hopeless case of mania in the practice of the late Dr. J. P. Van Evera. The patient was in constant motion and lamentation. If near a window she wanted to throw herself from it. When near the water she wanted to drown. On entering the kitchen she endeavoured to get into the stove and burn to death. The case was referred to the late Professor Selden H. Talcott, who gave a Rhus remedy and cured the case promptly. Nothing in my medical experience has given me more insight and confidence in homeopathy than that cure. It served me well in the case which is about to be related.
