Treatment of Tin ma.
The Therapeutic Gazette describes the
following met liod of treatment of burns.
employed by Dr. Bardeleben in a Berlin
hospital: 1 he burned surface is first care
fully washed with a 2 or 3 per cent, solu
tion of carbolic acid or a 8 per mille
solution of salicylic acid. The blisters
are then opened and the entire surface
covered with Mibnitrate of bismuth finely
nowuerea, an i over this a layer of cotton
wooL This dressing is to be renewed as
soon as it beet nies at all moistened by dis
charges from the wound. If the burn is
very extenvp, an ointment of bismuth is
substituted for the dry powder.
Dr. lianleleoen asserts that with this
dressing cicatrization is much more rapid
and suffering much more quickly relieved
than is the case with any other form of
treatment. He states that, in spite Of the
large quae tity of bismuth which he has
employed, he has never seen any symptoms
of poisonii g follow its use.
Citing the Xails.
Biting the nails is not only a most dis
agreeable practice, but an exchange affirms
that it is also exceedingly dangerous, as
the biter never knows when to stop and at
any momtnt is liable to bite into "the
quick" and cause blood poisoning. Even
when the utmost care is taken of the teeth.
a poisonous secretion is apt to collect on
them, and the entrance of a minute por
tion of this into the circulation may prove
as certainly f..tal as the pus on a surgeon's
Electric Light on m Painful Surface.
The sncse-ssful treatment of hysterical,

journal, bv Dr. Von Stein. His apparatus

AT HOME DAYS.
The Advantages Which Tbey Offer Over
Afternoon "At Home."
At home days offer m.-itiy advantages
over afternoon at homes; for one thing
they are much less trouble, and, compara
tively speaking, entail but a minimum of
expense. In the one case little or no prep
aration is required: in the other much
preparation is necessary, while, as to the
expense, a good deal may be incurred if
any special amusement of a superior char
acter is 1 3 be provided. An at home is
limited to one afternoon and acceptances
and refusals are expected, but an at home
day of weekly occurrence gives an oppor
tunity of calling when most convenient
without l.eing pledged to one day only.
On an at 1 otne day the hostess is accessible
to all her visitors, and most of tbem may
hope to en joy a little chat with her. At an
at home si 8 is either receiving or saying
iroodby during the whole two or three
hours that, the at home lasts, and more
than a wo-d or two is not to be expected
from her. Indeed, among the visitors
themselves the chances of a little conversa
tion are far greater on an at borne day
than at an at home, and it is difficult for
friends to find an opportunity of talking
to each other; interruptions are so fre
ouent. every one's attention is claimed on
all sides, and if it is not the survival of the
fittest, yet it is the fittest to the Iront, and
the meek ones of the eartn ges pernaps
never a word with their most valued friends,
and leave it ta others whose self assurance
to control the situation t more prominent
than their own.
Those who have at home days should.
however, lie quite sure that they have a
clear run for a month or two months as re
gards enjragemeuts on those particular
days, and also as regards engagements out
of town noing away, for instance, on a
week's vis t. The awkwardness and trouble

day when something unexpected has turned
