Allen, of Amboy, gave a dose to a child six years old, and it brought away eightythree worms. He soon after gave another dose to the same child, which brought away fifty more, making one hundred and thirty-three worms in about twelve hours. , Andrew Downing, of Cranbury Township, Venango County, gave his child one tea-spoonful, and she passed one hundred arid seventy^seven worms.
