HORRORS.* When you put a poultice 011 a child's chest to relieve the pain and distress of an attack of bronchitis, be sure you make it light. I have seen heavy poultices weighing on a child's chest like a ton of lead, and every time the poor little thing's chest heaved in breathing it had to lift the extra weight of the poultice. Poultices must be light, and never placed so as to impede the breathing. I am not a great believer in those linseed horrors; they soon get cold and clammy. I know that my old friend Aunt Maria is a strong advocate of them because she saved her husband's life with a poultice, whereas the poor old fellow just scraped through in spite of the discomfort the poultice gave him. Try it for yourself; lie on your back in bed and put a heavy cushion with a book on top of it on your chest; you will soon appreciate my objection to a poultice. -0:
