January 8th, 2008

This is a spasm of the diaphragm caused by flatulency, indigestion or acidity. It may be relieved by the sudden application of cold, also by two or three mouthfuls of cold water, by eating a small piece of ice, taking a pinch of snuff, burning of brown paper, or anything that excites counteraction.
