Homeopathy at Sea



News-Commentary, Drollery


Homeopathy, Medical Treatment

    Discusses a report of a Japanese ambassador's cure for sea-sickness, which consists of an exotic soup and some champagne. Thinks this mixture would have the same effect as 'antinomial wine', and should work because 'like cures like'. Adds that the ambassador must have taken more than the infinitesimal dosage needed for such a cure.
