Oil llATiu.-It ia worth knowing that there
there are occasions which a bath of oil may
Ite of value; tor it is the best ot all remedies
(or serious bums. A German ballet girl,
w hose dress had canght fire, and who had
been horribly bunted in cotwequencc, was
put into a bsth full of oil by tho chief phy
sician of tho lijtsic Hospital. She was
suffering atrocious agonies, nut the oil caus
ed her pain to cease almost Immediately.
She remained in tbu bath nino days and
nights, the oil being renewed five tiinos du
ring tliut period ; and her burns were so far
healed that she could be taken out without
I in in or danger. Three weeks after, she
isd completely recovered. This is an ad
mi rnhle form of cure, bucause U suppresses
the intolerable tortures which do more to
kill ihe vktima by fire than the actual gi lev
ity of the wounds. Unfortunately, like
m'nst good things in life, it is a remedy Iw
yond the reach of stnsll purses.
