Anthelminthic Powder.

Take Coralline prepared 1 dram; Mineral Ethiops (made without Fire) half a dram; Oil of Wormwood 1 drop, make it into Powder.

I thought the Preparation of Ethiops Mineralis without Fire, had been an Invention of this Age, but I find it in Rondeletius (de Unguentis 1037.) where he faith, Argentum vivum extingui potest, vel Sulphure, vel Aceto, vel Calcinatione.

Let 15 grains be given to an Infant Morn and Even, for 3 Days before new and full Moon to disturb the Worms, and drive them out of their Nests and kill them. And then after it, the next following to cast both them and their Seed quite out of the Body.
