A writer in the Medical Report citos a number of cases in which bórax has proved a most effective remedy in certain forms of colds. He states that in sudden hoarseness or loss of voice in public speakers or singers, froin colds, relief for an hour or so, as by magie, may be often obtained by slowly disolving, and partially swallowing, a lump of borax the size of a garden pea, or about three or four grains, held in the inouth for ten minutes before speaking or singiug. This produces a profuse secretion of saliva, or " watering" of the mouth and throat - probably restoring the voice or tone to the dried vocal cords, just as " wetting" brings back the missing notes to a ilute, when it is too dry.
