The object of this article is not tola down directions for the treatment of the different stages of scroAili but to give instructions for the management of the boWels, Am of scrofulous subjects, so as to secure the lungs, joints, glandi &c* against mischief, or, in other words, to keep the lymphati system in a quiet state, and to strengthen it, so as to subdo morbid excitement, or the predisposition in it to inflammator action. Costiveness is a complaint to which scrofulous subjects are var liable^ and being a general precursor of disorder of the lymphati system, or of structural mischief in the lungs, mesenteric giaadi joints, and the glands of the neck, it may be considered so far a exciting cause of the .disease, that, had it been obviated, it weal not have come into action.

Iodine has, within the last two years, been much recommended by seyeral respectable surgeons of France, I Germany, and England, and from the numerous cases of scrofula which have been published in this and other journals, there can be no doubt of its possessing an antiscrofulous property; but it has : 'been observed, that if the bowels he not kept in a proper state, the ' article is very apt to disorder tlie stomach and head, and even to excite slight fever, and considerable irritation in the salivary glands, ; and these effects have induced some physicians, from ignorance of the cause, to abandon its use.* I The best aperient medicine for obviating costiyeness in scrofulous subjects is jalap, because it does not disturb either the process of \ ehymification in the stomach, or of chyliflcation in the duodenum, or I prevent absorption'of the chyle for the due nourishment of the body^ I DY harrying it through the small intestines, its peculiar aperient I effects arising from its action on the internal membrane of the colon, bj increasing its fecal secretion.

The diet should be adapted to the state of the general health, and particularly to that of tne sanguiferous system. We shall conclude this article with an extract from Mr. Abemethy's work on the constitutional treatment of local diseases : *^ I have remarked in many instances that diseases of tlie absorbent glands, such as are usually denominated scrofulous^ occurring in adults, have apparently originated from the disorder of the digestive organs. In several cases the local disease was of long duration, and had become worse rather than better under various plans of medical treatment; yet it amended regularly, and sometimes even quickly, in proportion as the state of the digestive organs was corrected. I need not detail «ny cases on this occa* «ion, since every surgeon must know them familiarly. The patients are commonly sent ^to the sea side, or into the country, where enlarged glands subside, and those which have suppurated and ulcerated heal ; and the local disease recovers in proportion as the health in general is amended. ^^ There are cases of scrofulous diseases occurring suddenly, and in various parts of the body at the same time, which seem to originate in that state of the constitution which is occasioned by disorder of the digestive organs. I have chiefly observed these eases in children, and they have followed some violent febrile afiection. In two cases, which I shall particularly mention, the small-pox was the antecedent disease. ' I have already stated, that ivhen the health has been considerably disordered by some violent disease, the digestive organs may become subseauently aflTected, and that this disorder proves a cause of many secondary diseases.'* The two cases to which Mr. Abernethy alludes are so very similar, that it is only necessary to give one to illustrate the great advantages of bis simple mode of treatment. *< A child of two years old had the small-pox, from which he did not seem to recover, but oo the contrary fell into a very bad state of health..
