CENTRAL UNION OF THE HOMOEOPATHIC PHYSICIANS OF GERMANY.
This society held its thirty-second annual meeting on the 9th and 10th of August, 1862, in Nurnberg under the presidency of Dr. von Grauvogl.
The evening of the 9th was devoted to the transaction of business, the inauguration of new members, auditing of accounts, reports of committees appointed to receive competing essays and award prizes for the same, if deserving, and the selection of subjects for general discussion on the session of the ensuing day which was to be devoted exclusively to subjects of scientific interest. The following subjects were selected: “Tussis convulsiva, Asthma thyroicum and Epilepsy.”
On the 10th of August a report was presented of the transactions of the Homoeopathic Polyclinic of Leipzig.
Dr. von Grauvogl presented an essay on the arithmetical and physical relations of the dilutions. Dr. Schneider followed in a discussion of the Physiology of disease and of cure.
The general debate on the subjects selected the evening before, was opened and maintained with warmth and great interest.
At the close of the discussion, Apothecary Markgraf distributed among the members the following drugs received by Dr. Meyer, from Brazil: Trigonocephalus jararaca, Paullinia pinnata and Dracontium polyphyllum.
This induced Dr. Kirsch to recommend experiments with Linaria leontodon (Antirrhi num luiaria?) which had in one case proved itself a remedy for Bright's disease of the kidney.
In conclusion Dr. Bohler exhibited a very good microscopic preparation of the Trichina spinalis.
The next meeting is to be held August 9th and 10th, 1863, at Mainz, under the presidency of Dr. Veisch. [Allg. Hom. Zeit., 65, 86.]
