Alazanna’s Notebook p8

St. Marks School Silent Influence [title] We do not fully realize the extent of our influence over those of whom we are associated. At all times example is better than precept. How many of us would feel like copying after a person who was continually telling their own good qualities but whose actions were far from being a desirable copy. On the contrary, we would seek to avoid such persons, but one who is gentle, firm and decided and who does not try to make their scenes noticed would be our choice. The influence which they would have with their associates would be lasting. For we could tell that in their hearts dwelt the seeds of charity meekness and loving kindness. As white paper is blotted so are our minds and hearts contaminated by constant intercourse with those whose habits are not refined. It is not always those who have educational advantages, who yield the most influence over us. Oftentimes we see examples of piety, parental love, sacrifice and sit(?) from those in humbler stations of life that influence us more than to see the same from those occupying higher positions. Alla Cable.

      • Hoy’s Lard is a white, inodorous, soft fat, which, when long exposed to the air grows yellow, rancid, and sour. It yields 38 per cent of stearine, which has been used for the manufacture of candles, and 62 per cent of oleine, which is considerably used for burning in lamps.–A Class Book of Chemistry by Edward Livingston Youmans p. 218 #431

Cure for Spanish Influenza* Immediately administer sufficient salts or castor oil** to flush the bowels. If the fever is well developed give an injection of luke warm water in which is added half table salt and half teaspoonful of common soda to and quart of water. Plaster: take two pieces of warm sheeting large enough to cover the chest, spread over surface of each cold lard or crisco as thickly as spreading butter on bread. Put 220-230(?) drafs(?) of turpentine*** on the lard of each and also sprinkle sufficient Scotek? snuff (Not the black snuff) to make the flesh dark brown. After hoorking(?) Snuff and turpentine into the lard with case knife your plaster is ready to be used (???) then give a 10 dr(?) minute sweat bath with two thirds full of water, hot as can stand, adding to the water one cup of salt and two tablespoons of mustard, constantly adding more hot water as it cools awhile in the sweat spread blanket or quilt over the tub and around the hot

  • The 1918 flu pandemic, commonly referred to as the Spanish flu, was a category 5 influenza pandemic caused by an unusually severe and deadly Influenza A virus strain of subtype H1N1. Many of its victims were healthy young adults, in contrast to most influenza outbreaks which predominantly affect juvenile, elderly, or otherwise weakened patients...The Spanish flu pandemic lasted from 1918 to 1919...The unusually severe disease killed between 2 and 20% of those infected, as opposed to the more usual flu epidemic mortality rate of 0.1%.[4][2] Another unusual feature of this pandemic was that it mostly killed young adults, with 99% of pandemic influenza deaths occurring in people under 65, and more than half in young adults 20 to 40 years old.[5] This is unusual since influenza is normally most deadly to the very young (under age 2) and the very old (over age 70)...The Allies of World War I came to call it the Spanish Flu, primarily because the pandemic received greater press attention in Spain than in the rest of the world, as Spain was not involved in the war and had not imposed wartime censorship.--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_flu 9/10/07
    • The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has categorized castor oil as "generally recognized as safe and effective" (GRASE) for over-the-counter use as a laxative. However, it is not a preferred treatment for constipation...Undecylenic acid, a castor oil derivative, is also FDA-approved for over-the-counter use on skin disorders or skin problems. Ricinoleic acid is the main component of castor oil and it exerts anti-inflammatory effects.--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castor_oil 9/10/07
      • Turpentine can be mixed with animal fat as a primitive chest rub for nasal and throat ailments. Many modern chest rubs still contain some turpentine (e.g., Vicks)--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turpentine 9/10/07

Alazanna’s Notebook p13

Leone*, My dear departed one. If you could only know How hard it was to give you up. How sad to let you go. But if God willed it should be so I know we should not mourn, But when I looked in those kind eyes And knew that we must part I thought it would take my very life And break your papa’s heart.

But still we live, the world moves on the Same as all can see. Yet I know our lives are better Because of knowing thee. But oh how hard to give you up To know that we must part. I thought it would take my very life And break your father’s heart

He never can forget you For when he came home at noon He could always see you crawling To meet him through the room.

He sang to you so gently 

As your plump arms clasped his neck. In memory we recall that scene We never can forget.


Alazanna’s Notebook p14

Your stay was short in this cold world Of sorrow and of strife. But yet your influence still remains To guide us through our lives. But oh how hard to give you up How sad [for] you to part. Although it has not killed us It has almost broke our hearts.

Your little spirit has sowered(?) away To regions far on high. But those soft brown eyes and that sweet smile to me can never die. I see them just as gentle as soft and fully bloom I see them in every corner I see them in every room. And when I sat and saw you die You could not help but know How hard it was to give you up How sad to see you go.

  • [All I could find on that was in a book called Traditional Veterinary Practice in Africa by Nsekuye Bisimana, “Nomads in East Africa sprinkle burnt leather into wounds.”]
    • Paregoric, or camphorated tincture of opium, is a medication known for its antidiarrheal, antitussive, and analgesic properties. It was a household remedy in the 18th and 19th centuries, when it was widely used to calm fretful children. But in the 20th century its use declined as governments regulated it. (In the United States, paregoric can still be found in the pharmacopeia, but it is a Schedule III drug under the Controlled Substances Act.) The principal active ingredient is morphine (0.4 mg/mL). Other ingredients are benzoic acid, camphor and anise oil. The main effect of this preparation is to increase the muscular tone of the intestine, and also to inhibit normal peristalsis. Its main medicinal use is to control fulminant diarrhea. It is also an antitussive (cough suppressant). Problems with its use include opiate dependency and analgesia which can mask symptoms of diseases that need treatment.---http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paregoric 9/10/07
      • Peppermint is generally regarded as 'the world's oldest medicine', with archeological evidence placing its use at least as far back as ten thousand years ago. –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peppermint 9/10/07
        • Camphor is a waxy, white or transparent solid with a strong, aromatic odor. It is a terpenoid with the chemical formula C10H16O. It is found in wood of the Camphor laurel (Cinnamomum camphora), a large evergreen tree found in Asia (particularly in Borneo and Formosa, hence its alternate name). It also occurs in some other related trees in the laurel family, notably Ocotea usambarensis. It can also be synthetically produced from oil of turpentine. It is used for its scent, as an ingredient in cooking (mainly in India), as an embalming fluid, in religious ceremonies and for medicinal purposes. A major source of camphor in Asia is Camphor basil.--http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camphor 9/10/07

  • Liniment, from the Latin linere, to anoint, is a medicated topical preparation for application to the skin. Preparations of this type are also called balm. Liniments are of a similar viscosity to lotions (being significantly less viscous than an ointment or cream) but unlike a lotion a liniment is applied with friction, that is a liniment is always rubbed in.

Liniments are typically sold to relieve pain and stiffness, such as from sore muscles or from arthritis. These liniments typically are formulated from alcohol, acetone, or similar quickly evaporating solvents, and contain counterirritant aromatic chemical compounds such as benzoin resin or capsaicin.– http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liniment 9/16/07

      • The chemical compound potassium nitrate KNO3 is a naturally occurring mineral source of nitrogen...Its common names include saltpetre (from Medieval Latin sal petrae: "stone salt" or possibly "Salt of Petra"), American English saltpeter, Nitrate of potash and nitre.

In the process of food preservation, potassium nitrate has been a common ingredient of salted meat, but its use has been deprecated. In the European Union, it is referred to as E252.

It is commonly used in pre-rolled cigarettes to maintain an even burn of the tobacco.

It has also been used in the manufacture of ice cream and can be found in some toothpastes for sensitive teeth. Recently, the use of potassium nitrate in toothpastes for sensitive teeth has increased dramatically, despite the fact that it has not been conclusively shown to help dental hypersensitivity.[4].– http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_nitrate 9/19/07

  • Jesuit's Bark, also called Peruvian Bark, is the historical name of the most celebrated specific remedy for all forms of malaria. It is so named because it was obtained from the bark of several species of the genus Cinchona, of the order Rubiaceae, that have been discovered at different times and are indigenous in the Western Andes of South America and were first described and introduced by Jesuit priests who did missionary work in Peru. Other terms referring to this preparation and its source were "Jesuit's Tree", "Jesuit's Powder" and "Pulvis Patrum".

Formerly, the bark itself, prepared in different forms, was used as a drug, but later in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, natural harvesting of immense quantities formed the base of the production of cinchona alkaloids. This industry was carried on principally in Germany, and the Dutch and English cinchona plantations in Java, Ceylon and India were the chief sources whence the raw material was supplied. Its main active principle, quinine, is now chemically synthesized. The term quinine comes from ghina, or quina-quina, the name given by Peruvian Indians to the bark, meaning medicine of medicines or bark of barks.– http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesuit's_bark 10/01/07

  • A fruit better known to most consumers in its preserved rather than in its natural form, the citron, Citrus medica Linn., is called in French, cedrat, cidratier, citronnier des Juifs; in Spanish, cidra, poncil, poncidre, cedro limón, limón cidra, limón Francés, though in Central America it is often referred to as toronja, the popular Spanish name for grapefruit.–
