Two little children were sitting by the fire one cold winter's night. All at once they heard a timid knock at the door and one ran to open it.

instances, however, especially in older patients who are accustomed

a large dose will be followed by more cardiac depression.
Nitroglycerin may act as well as whisky in the kind of cases
mentioned. Caffein stimulation in any form is generally inadvisable
during inflammation of the heart.
