Why is molasses suggested for these" small eaernas instead of glycerin, plain- water, and water, and salt and water? Dr. Hicks states that molasses was chosen because U) it proved to be relatively non-irritant; (2) it easily available: it is cheaper than glvcerin; (4) it mixes weli in varying" strengths; (5) it can be used with other remedies such as turpentine: it is effective. Observations on 15.000 covering 25 years, with 5.000 of these patients followed up and records, fcept, has shown that only six per cent of the patients (one in 17) on the small enema give a history of any irritation of the rectum (lowest part of Jarge or of faint- instead of the 33 per cent (one in every three) who used the soapsuds enemas from time to time.
