MAKES BURNS PAINLESS.
Picric Acid Solution Will Kose n Fresh !
Wound and Ural It.
The suffering onusotl by tv burn upon tho
skin, whether small or great, is intense,
as every one know?, and medical science
has only been able thus far to palliate but
not to remove the pain entirely. Chance
led to the discovery in the Paris Charity
hospital of 11 remedy which, it, is claimed,
will cause burns to coaeo from being pain?
ful as soon as it is applied, and which will
Cause tho injured flush to heal with mar?
One of tho surgeons was in the habit of
using picric acid as an antiseptic, and his
hands woro therefore Impregnated with
the solution. One day in lightlug nciga?
rette n portion of tho hurtling match fell
upon his hand, but instead of feeling it
iui noticed not tho slightest pain. A short
time afterward, while scaling ri letter,
some burning wax stuck to his finger, and
though it cauterized tho skin ho felt no
sensation. This set him to thinking, anil
ho arrived at tho conclusion that the ae.iti
bad, to use his own words, "acted upon
tho tissues and tightoncd them."
llo began it series of experiments in
treating hums with a saturated solution
of picric acid. "Ail pain was Instantly
suppressed," ho says in his report, "after
having bathed the wound in a solution of
this acid. Blisters did not. form, and n
euro was offooled after four or five days.
Tho only inconvenience was that (he acid,
which is commercially used in tho manu?
facture of dyes, colored the skin yellow,
but these stains rapidly disappeared,when
washed with boric acid. Picric acid, more?
over, Ik odorless and is neither caustic, Ir?
ritating nor toxic in its effects."
Tho cheapness of picric acid and tho
ease With which a proper solution of it
may bo prepared anil Kept ready have in?
duced many of tho largo manufactories
about Paris, whoso workmen arc frequent?
ly burned at. their labors, to place jars
about within easy roach, so that those in?
jured maybe treated with as little delay
as possible. ? New York World.
