V bit of home surgery, stated to have been practised when a splinter has been driven into a chtld s hand particularly deep, is its extraction by steam. A bottle with a sufhcicntlv wide mouth is Idled two-thirds with very hot water, and the mouth is placed under the injured spot. The suction draws the fl.-sh downwards when a little pressure is used, andthe steam in a moment or two extracts inflammation and splinter together. This is very efficacious when the offending substance has been in for several hours, long' enough to have started some of its evil consequents.
