PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION.

The demand for a third edition of this work, after so brief an interval, would seem to imply that the object of the author in endeavoring to supply a volume of almost hourly reference for the practitioner has been fully appreciated. In the preparation of this new edition he has made numerous additions and alterations which he believes will materially increase its value.

Among the subjects now introduced for the first time, or so thoroughly revised as to possess the freshness of novelty, the following may be particularly mentioned :

:

Tables of Doses of Remedies (enlarged and adapted to the Pharmacopoeia of 1880).

Pharmacopoeial Groups from the Pharmacopoeia of 1880, Simplified for Ready Reference.

Nutritive Enemata (New Formulæ).

New and Carefully Selected Prescriptions.

How to Prevent the Spread of Smallpox.

Tables of Differential Diagnosis.

How to Apply Bandages.

How to Apply Immediate Relief in Recent Accidents or Sudden
Illness.

Arrest of Hemorrhage; Treatment of Wounds; Immediate
Treatment of Fractures.

Treatment of Foreign Bodies in the Eye and Ear.

Treatment of Burns and Scalds, and Bites of Rabid and other
Animals.

Treatment of Frostbite, Sprains, Spitting of Blood, Insensi-
bility, Suffocation, and Sunstroke.

Suggestions for the Nursing of the Sick.

How to Make Poultices; How to Apply Blisters, Fomentations, and Leeches.
