Let the Patient snuff a little of this up into the Nostril that is opposite to the Pain, and presently throw himself upon a Bed, for 'twill immediately give him a Twinge, as though he were shot through the Head, yet it scarce provokes Sneezing, though it draw out a great deal of Water, anon it brings a little Doziness as 'twere; and seldom fails of driving the Toothach for that time.
