virulence. The latest bulletin, recently
issued, shows that this country still
makes a comparatively favorable show*

smaller than in most of the European

the past 13 years, and, unfortunately, it

ever, came over the country, when some

To-day carbolic add leads the Bulclde

The use of poison for "shuffling off

favor especially with' women, until It'
has become necessary to take some ac

this deadly aEnd painful poison.. In some
of the states the sale of carbolic acid has
been regulated and restricted in much

poisons, but it is an article in such gen?
