The mustard water is not for drinking. You put your feet in i l l and leisurely consume half the rye whisky, mixed with the juice of a f lemon and a half. " \ According to Dr. Almour, this p a r t ; of the treatment should take 15 min- j uLes*, which may seem long for two ; jiggers of rye, but that's the doctor's | prescription. . j Then you pull your fcot out of I the water, take five grains of Dover's j powder and go to bed but just be- j fore you go to bed you knock of! the rest of the rye. ; In case you don't like Dover's . powders, you can omit that, and j'f it turns out you don't like mustard ' Accepts Pastorate.
