]New Cure for ISTeiuralgia. Dr George Leslie, of Falkirk, in an article in the "Edinburgh Medical Journal," gives the result of some experiments he made into the cure of neuralgia, headache, faceache, earache, and toothache. His treatment, which has been uniformly successful, is to administer to the patient powdered chloride of sodium— common table salt—to be taken as a pinch of snuff into the nostril on the side of the face affected. The application produces little pain or discomfort and the cure is effected in the short period required for nerve transmission, or so quickly that in many cases the patient does not realise that the agony is away until after a space for introspection. Although a single application usually suffices for the extinction of pain, especially when it is recent and localised, yet in cases of longstanding or distribution Dr Leslie has found that' the .pinches require to be repeated every ; half minute for about five minutes, or ten successive doses. Not only has this cure banished pain at the time, but in almost every case the affection has not returned for many months. In only two cases has it failed, one of toothache in which the nerve had been cut, and one in which the subject had been in the habit of taking morphia. Cases in which neuralgia had been persistent for years and in which the face o was so. tender that it could not be touched with a sponge yielded in less than five minutes.'
