THE WAR IN TURKEY.
The Russians have made a third attack on
Plevna. This last attack was in great force and
was made about the 12th of September. It was a
failure. They took some redoubts, one of which,
a central and important one called Grivica or Gri-
vitza, they still hold. They took also a large dou-
ble redoubt which they were unable to hold. Sko-
beleff got into it and repulsed several efforts of the
Turks to retake it. He asked for reinforcements,
but none coming, he had to give way. The Rus-
sians with their Roumanian allies, set about be-
sieging the place they had tried so often and so
fruitlessly to take by assault. The great Russian
engineer, Todleben, came to advise them and to see
that their plans were well devised and executed.
But the besieged forces under Osman have been
largely reinforced and their position is now deemed
secure. The Russians are also receiving large ad-
ditions to their numbers, the imperial guard having
already begun to arrive. But for the present, their
attempts against Plevna have been baffled, and if
renewed at all this campaign, they must be renewed
speedily as the rainy season in Bulgaria is setting
in. The morale of the invaders has been much im-
paired by these repeated reverses. If they ever
had the superiority in numbers claimed for them,
it must have been wasted in their attempts against
Plevna. In the last battle their losses were 25,000.
They can stand more of this than the Turks as they
have larger reserves from which to recruit. But
for present work they do not seem better off than
their adversaries. When Skobeleff was refused
help, he merely said, It is the will of GOD. I have
done my best." But much discontent is felt among
the Russian troops, and Levitski, the chief of staff,
is almost openly denounced. Mr. Forbes, the war
correspondent of the Daily News," who is a strong
pro-Russian, says that the Turks fight better and
are better commanded than the Russians, and as to
the latter part of his statement most people will
agree with him. His testimony is valuable as no
one has better means for forming an opinion. He
accomplished one of the feats of the war. His re-
port of the second battle of Plevna reached London
before all others, and was better than the later and
fuller descriptions. The critics say that not one
word of the graphic narrative could be advanta-
geously changed. The writer was twenty hours
continuously in the saddle, and wrote his famous
dispatch as he went along or paused to breathe his
horse. It cost two hundred and fifty pounds to
transmit, and was worth the money.
Whilst the severest fighting has been round
Plevna, where the combatants seem to have formed


a ring to fight in, there have also been contests of
some importance at Shipka and in the neighbor-
hood of Beila. Suleiman and Mehemit Ali have
both made demonstrations which grew into real at-
tacks. Suleiman captured, and for a short time
held, Fort Saint Nicholas, a very commanding posi-
tion in Shipka Pass. The Russians took it back
from him, and in these encounters the Turks lost
Heavily and suffered most. So also in his efforts
against the Russian left, Mehemet Ali was repul-
sed. The Turks, no doubt, intended to prevent re-
inforcements for Plevna, being sent from the Rus-
sian left and centre, and in this they may have
succeeded. But their failure to attack in force the
lines which had been to some extent weakened in
making the attack on Plevna, shows that they have
no more men than they need. It is not improbable
that Osman was reinforced by both of his brother
Generals before the late battles, but the forces that
have reached him since the battles are new levies.
The latest rumors were of another unsuccessful at-
tack on Plevna, but they lacked authenticity and
confirmation, and the armies stand looking at one-
another, the Russians once more defeated in their
persistent attempts on Plevna, and defeated with
immense loss which the possession of one redoubt
scarcely compensates, and the Turks unable or in-
disposed to follow up any advantages which Osman
may have secured by his defence so fortunate for
himself so disastrous to his adversary.

THE FAMINE IN INDIA.
Among the difficulties which those who are char.
ged with the administration of the affairs of our
Indian Empire are called upon to cope with, there
would appear to be few of greater or more pressing
concern, than the lamentable fact that, from causes
which scarce admit of human control, very large
numbers of persons in that densely peopled country
are from time to time subject to the danger of death
by hunger.
The recollection of the famine in Bengal is still
fresh in our minds, and now we have the sad duty
of recording, that at the present moment in another
Presidency, that of Madras, there exists a state of
destitution of the most awful and appalling nature.
The population in the famine district numbers,
we believe, some 18,000,000. With regard to the
condition of that district, letters from India speak
of whole villages as utterly depopulated, and in
some once prosperous places nothing is to be seen
but whitened human skeletons which the jackals
and vultures have picked clean; the known deaths
reach half a million, and the real number is proba-
bly far greater. Many persons have gone to the
jungle to appease their hunger by berries and roots
and have never returned.
According to the latest advices, the future pros-
pects in consequence of a fall of rain are somewhat
improved ; but in spite of this all available resour-
ces will be taxed to the utmost to afford relief until
the ingathering of the next crop.
The Government of India is doing all that lies in
its power to feed the starving population, but it is
generally admitted that in addition to public aid,
there is ample need for the exercise of private be-
nevolence; nor is there any danger lest the one
should clash or interfere with the other, as ar-
rangements have been made by which private sub-
scriptions will be dispensed by Committees apart
from Government, though in connection with the
authorities.
The mother country has not been backward in
recognizing the claim which these starving mil-
lions have upon her, an Indian Famine Relief Fund
has been started in London, and liberal subscrip-
tions have been made to it, from all parts of the
United Kingdom, and at our latest dates a sum
little short of 200,000 had been already paid to the
Fund.
We are informed that collections will be made
in various Churches throughout the Islands on
Sunday next in aid of this Fund, and we beg to be
allowed to express a hope that those who have the
means and opportunity will not be backward in
contributing to a Fund, the direct object of which
is to alleviate human suffering, and to preserve hu-
man life.

THE HURRICANE WHICH DID NOT VISIT BERMUDA.
-We find by our American files that a Northeas-
tern cyclone was reported at Barbados and St.
Vincent on the 21st ultimo. At midnight it passed
over Porto Rico where the vortex was 250 miles
south, direction W.N.W., velocity 10 or 12 miles
per hour.
A hurricane did considerable damage in the
Gulf States generally, on the 20th, not only along
the coast, but for a considerable distance inland.
The New Orleans Picayune says that the cane in
several districts has been laid low, that the worms
and the storm have so damaged the cotton that not
more than one third of a crop is expected, the failure
will it is said amount to 30,000 bales. The
gale passed the Carolinas without being much felt.
At Halifax and neighborhood and in the St. Law-
rence on the 21st, there was a severe gale, and exten-
sive damage was done to the shipping, not only by
the force of the wind but by the unusually high
tides which prevailed.
Captain Shaw of the Beta, when on passage
hence to Halifax, reports that on Thursday 20th, at
midnight, encountered a severe gale varying from
S E to E, with rain squalls, which on Friday veer-
ed to E in the afternoon to N E and on Saturday
morning to N, lasting 30 hours, with a tremendous
sea. Barometer fell to 29"42.


A severe storm occurred at St. Johns, N.F., on
the 22nd but no damage was done.

ATHLETIC SPORTS, "D" CO., 46TH S. D.
REGIMENT.
The above Company, under command of Lieut.
Dumaresq, and under the patronage of Lieut.-Col.
R. Bennett and Officers of the Regiment, held their
Athletic Sports on Saturday last, the 6th instant, on
the Garrison Cricket Ground, Prospect. The wea-
ther wa. very propitious, though inclined to be
showery on several occasions. The sports were
attended by a goodly sprinkling of visitors, who
(we should say, from the interest they evinced) tho-
roughly enjoyed themselves. The course was very
prettily marked out with different coloured flags,
forming two concentric parallelograms with the
corners rounded 'off, and looked very picturesque.
The greasy pole, encircled with similar flags, was
at the North side of the Ground, and just in rear of
it a large marquee which sheltered some of the vis-
itors during the short showers. At the S. E. cor-
ner was a tent at which refreshments could be
obtained; at the S. W. corner, the dressing tent;
and, between the two, .an admirable representation
of Old Aunt Sally, under the proprietorship of
Messrs. Hutchins and Thompson. The Sports
commenced at 1"30 p.m. with a race of 150 yards
for young soldiers under six years' service. With-
out much delay the men were got into their places
by Sergt, Brookfield and started by Lieut. Perkins.
A sharp run brought them to the winning post,
when Lieut. Dumaresq (acting as Judge) declared
Pvt. Gregory entitled to 1st prize and Pvt. Tootill
the 2nd. The bell was immediately rung for the
next race, the same distance, for men over six
years' service--Pvt. Mortal, an old soldier of 20
years' service, carrying off 1st prize, and Pvt. Hut-
chins 2nd. Next on the programme was the three
standing jumps-Pvt. Mortal again victorious and
Tootil 2nd. Throwing the cricket ball was next in
order, Dmr. Kirby took 1st prize; the 2nd prize
was stoutly contested by Pvts. Coles and Killin, the
former being eventually the winner. The hurdle
race was very decidedly won by Pvt. South, Pvt.


Coles taking 2nd place. Throwing the 561b. weight
was very spiritedly contested, each thrower (with
few exceptions) beating his predecessor until it was
finally left between Pvts. Killin and. Fry; the for-
mer by a masterly throw shewed his superiority,
the latter taking 2nd prize. The sack race, owing
to an insufficient number of sacks, had to be run in
two heats, the winner in each running a final heat
for 1st prize-Pvt. South 1st, Matley 2nd. For the
half-mile race 5 started! 2 fell out before the com-
pletion, the others took prizes as follows : Pvt. Gre-
gory 1st, Pvt. Hutchin3 2nd, and Pvt. Matley 3rd.
150 yards (cans of water).-This race was more
pleasant for the lookers-on than for the competitors,
who were all wet through before the race was com-
pleted. Pvt. White took 1st prize, Pvt. Jury 2nd.
100 yards wheelbarrow race (blindfolded).-This
caused great amusement; one man and barrow, di-
verging to the right, just escaped the greasy pole
and nearly upset the Officers and Ladies who were
sitting outside the marquee. The race was won by
Pvt. Fry, Pvt. Jury 2nd. Wrestling match.-At
this there was but one competition, Pvts. Williams
and Blamey. Williams was much the stronger of
the two, and after several ineffectual attempts con-
trived to throw his opponent and won the prize,
Next on the programme was climbing the greasy
pole; 6 men entered and drew for precedence.
During the competition the Band arrived and com-
menced playing. Each man had a try and went
various lengths, but none above the centre. It was
feared no one would be able to accomplish the feat.
Pvt. Blarney, however, had his second try, and with
the assistance of some ropes which he prepared
for the occasion, contrived after much exertion to
reach the top and gain the prize. He was greatly
cheered by all present. Ducking for coins was an
amusing sport; 5 tubs were arranged and filled
with water, coins were dropped in and the compe-
titors ducked their heads in and brought the money
out in their mouths, keeping what they got. The
tug of war.-The Right and Left half Company
strove hard for this; the line wavered to and fro,
and at length the Left half were pulled completely
over the mark, giving the victory to the Right half.
The 'Married Women's race.-In this there were
but two competitors, Mrs. Fry and Mrs.
Brookfield. The race was very close; Mrs Fry
came in first, closely followed by her friend Mrs. B.
The rules, however, awarded the prize to Mrs.
Brookfield. The boys of the Company then had a
race, with the following result: Hanaphy 1 st, Mor-
tal 2nd. Lastly, the consolation race for non-win-
ners of prizes-Pvt Cushan took 1st and McKenna
2nd prize.
The Band during the latter part of the proceed-
ings played some very nice selections. The Com-
pany adjourned to the Barrack room for supper.
Three cheers were proposed for Mr. Dumaresq and
lustily executed standing. After supper three
cheers were proposed for the Pay-Sergeant, Color-
Sergt. Divine, and responded to by lusty and pro-
longed cheering. The evening passed off very
pleasantly, and at the usual hour the men retired.
To the credit of the Company be it added, there
were no prisoners on the occasion.

THE INTERNATIONAL RIFLE MATCH.
BRITISH vs. AMERICAN.
Very full particulars of this highly interesting
match which took place at Creedmoor on the 13th
and 14th ult., is given in the Forest and Stream of the
20th ultimo. The greatest blunder of the day was
that of Sir Henry Halford forgetting to put a bullet
into his rifle, and the next, Millner, planting a
plump bull, but in the wrong target. These two ac-
cidents doubtlessly put the British team back at least
ten points.
The combined scores of the team men for the two
days at the several ranges runs as follows:-

Though the British were beaten by 92 points,
they still surpassed the highest score ever recorded
at Wimbledon or Creedmoor.
At theconclusion of the Match and when all were as-
sembled in the President's tent Judge Stanton mount-
ed on a chair,-and after formally announcing the
victory of the Americans, proposed three cheers
for the British team, these were given aud repeated.
Judge Stanton said :-Sir Henry Halford and Gen.
Dakin, captains of the respective teams who have
been engaged during the past two days in the great
international contest, I congratulate you both on
its successful termination. We of the Rifle Asso-
ciation have endeavoured from the first to conduct
it so that at its conclusion each party would feel
as though they had had fair play. I have been as-
sured on behalf of the separate teams by their Cap-
tains, and especially by the British team, that they
feel that such has been given them. Now, as we
have but a very few moments to remain, I will be
brief, and simply thank you for meeting here to take
a social farewell and a glass of wine with us. [Ap-
plause.]
Sir Henry -Halford here stepped forward and
said :-I can thoroughly indorse every word that
has been said about the treatment of the teams and
the conditions of the match. We, at any rate, must
acknowledge that we have been beaten honestly and
thoroughly. [Applause]. It is not singular tha
such should be the case, however, under the cir.
cumstances. We have been treated throughout
with the greatest kindness, and every facility has
been extended to us that lay in the power of the
National Association to grant. [Applause.] I can
only say that although we were beaten and we re-
gret it, we will return home with feeling of enjoy-
ment of our trip and our treatment. I, for one,
will be happy to come back again to this country,
and will ever be pleased to call those whom I have
met here my friends. [Great applause.]
As a proof however that the English team was
composed of first rate shots, in a private, match
which followed and in which the team men of the
British and Americans took part, the former beat
the latter, the scores standing:-

LONDON, Oct. 1.-The Times' Bucharest despatch
dated Sunday, says:-The report current in Bu-.
charest yesterday that the allied armies had again
been repulsed in an assault upon Plevna is con.
founded."
The Reprovisioning of Plevna.-A correspondent
with Kreloff, who commands the force which is en-
dervourine to prevent the revictualment of Plevna,
F;--"T'be first Turkish convoy which entered
(vnaconsisted of 2,000 wagons. General Kreloff
; Ifempted to hold the road at a point so near Plev-
na that Osman Pasha was able to send a force
which attacked him in the rear and obliged him to
withdraw and leave the road open."
The Turks elude them.-Upon retiring, General-
Kreloff left two regiments of Cossacks at Etropol to
watch the Sofia road. Another convoy coming from
i road, unknown to the Russians, running along
She Sofia road, slipped through the fingers of this
detachment on Monday, and was under the guns of
Plevna before the Russians could attack it,"
Another attempt defeated.- A second Turkish con.
voy for Plevna has returned.to Orkani, the Rouma-
nian cavalry having captured 8 wagons of grain.
Must be taken by Siege.-A Bucharest special says,
General Toddleben's opinion of the situation at
Plevna has been laid before the Grand Duke Ni-
cholas. It is understood to declarethat siege oper-
( nations on a most extended scale are requisite for
the capture of the place."
Roumanians better than Russians.-A. despatch
dated Verbica, Wednesday, says that the Rouma-
nians mean to push their trenches to within thirty,
yards of the second Grivica redoubt before begin-
ning an assault. They are just commencing their
fourth and final parallel. The rain is continuous
and the mud in the trenches fearful. The weather
is also very cold, but officers and men stick to their
posts with pluck and resolution,.
No plan, no head.--The correspondent thinks the
Roumanians are sure to carry the redoubt, and
says were the Russians advancing as rapidly on their
Side Plevna would fall before a fortnight; but the
Russians seem completely at sea. They have no
plan, no idea, no head. They are waiting for rein-
forcements, which are arriving slowly, and which
when all here will hardly more than cover their
losses by battle and sickness during the last two
months. "I think history offers no such example
of a splendid army in such an utterly helpless con-
dition."
Osman's Recent Losses.-A correspondent with
the Turkish army telegraphs from Plevna that Os-
man Pacha's losses from the Russian cannonade
were exceedingly light; that on the day when he
retook the redoubts on the Softcha road he lost
3,000 men. There are now (Sept. 23) only 1,900
wounded at Plevna.
The Geneva Compact defied.-The Porte has re-
fused to permit the transit of timber across the
Danube for housing the Russian wounded.
The Grand Duke ill.--The Grand Duke Nicholas


is suffering from liver complaint.
The Geshoffs safe.-A special despatch from Con.
stantinople by way of Syra, says:-" The Porte has
at last succeeded in overcoming the opposition of
the military authorities and the Geshoffs are to be
, brought to Constantinople. It is hoped their lives
are now safe."

......, at Holy Trinity Church, Hamilton Pa-
rish, on Thursday the 4th instant, by the Rev.
George Tucker, B.A., Rector JABEZ OUTERBRIDGE, to
CHARLOTTE ISABEL, youngest daughter of James L.

DIED, at Radnor House," Hamilton Parish, on the
6th inst., MRS. A. G. HILL, relict of John Hill, in the
81 year of her age.
.......... at Caledonia Park, St. George, on the 3rd
instant, of congestion of the lungs, caused by Typhoid
Fever, MR. WILLIAM TEEVAN HYLAND, eldest son of
W. C. J. Hyland, Esqr., aged 30 years and 9 months.
It is indeed with deep regret that we record the death
of one, who in the exuberance of health and strength has
been suddenly cut down, and whose kind, generous,
honourable and genial disposition, had won the love and
esteem of all who knew him throughout the Islands.
In the town of St. George his death has cast a gloom
and the heartfelt sympathy of the inhabitants of all
classes was fully indicated by the large concourse which
followed his remains to their last testing place.
That." divine truism, "In the midst of life we are in
death" was never more fully illustrated than in the
death of the above named Gentleman.
Only four and a half months have elapsed since Mr.
H.lost his wife, to whom he was much devoted, and her
death had a marked influence on his happiness.
...... .., in Warwick Parish, on 19th Septr., after a
painful illness, Mrs. WILLIAM T. NUSUM, aged 38
years, leaving a husband, six children and numerous
relatives and friends to mourn their loss.

ments, and it was adopted and ordered to be en-

THE LATEST FEAT OF AFRICAN EXPLORA-
TION-IDENTIFICATION OF TIlE CONGO
AND LUALABA RIVERS.
The Herald's special account of Henry M. Stanley's
expedition across the African continent, from Zanzi-
bar, striking the Lualaba River and following it
down to the west coast, it is a narrative of profound
interest. We append a few extracts:
Stanley's dispatch is dated from Emboma, Congo
River, west coast of Africa, August 10, and informs
us that he arrived at that'point on August 8 from
Zanzibar with only 115 souls, the entire party in an
awful condition alter their long and terrible journey
through the heart of the African continent.
After completing the exploration of Lake Tangan-
yika and settling definitely by actual survey the
question of the outflow of the lake by what was be-
lieved to be the River Lakuga, but which he has
proved to be only a creek draining into the lake, ex-
cept when the waters of the great inland sea attain an
extraordinary level, Stanley and his followers pushed
across the country to Nyangwe, on the Lualaba.
This was the most northerly point reached by Came-
ron when he attempted to solve the mystery of the
Congo and its identity with the main drainage line
of the Lualaba basin.
Stanley left Nyangwe on the 15th November, 1876,
and travelled overland through Uregge, with his
party.
After an arduous march of many days through a
country filled with difficulties, and being compelled
to transport on the shoulders of his men every pound
of provisions and other stores necessary for the trans-
continental journey, and besides carrying in a simi-
lar manner the selections of the Lady Allice explor-
ing boat and the arms and ammunition of his party,
Stanly found himself brought to a stand by immense-
tracts of dense forests, through which all attempts at
progress were futile. Finding that he could not ad-
vance along the line he had first intended to follow,
Stanley crossed the Lualaba and continued his jour-
ney along the left bank of the river, passing through
the district known as northeast Ukusu. On this route
he endeavoured to find an outlet westward, but the
jungle was so dense, and the fatigues of the march
so harassing, that it seemed impossible for him to
succeed in passing the tremendous barrier of the
forest.
Too add to the horrors of his position in these Cen-
tral African winds Stanley found himself opposed at
every step by the hostile cannibal natives, The
savages filled the woods and day and night poured
flights of poisoned arrows on his party, which killed
and fatally wounded many of his men.
There was only one way to escape from the hapless
position in which Stanley now found himself, unless
he accepted the alternative of returning to Nyangwe
and abandoning the grand work which he had under-
taken. This was to make use of canoes. When the
Lady Alice as a last reliance, and good canoes for
the party, Stanley concluded that he could advance
with a better prospect of success than in any other
way.
Although he had a decided advantage over the sav-
ages on the water Stanley still found that each day's
advance was but a repetition of the struggle of the
day previous. It was desperate fighting all the time
i while pushing down the river with might and main.
Fortunately it was still the rifle against the bow,
but when the bow was covered by the dense woods
and the rifle was exposed in the open canoe.
In the midst of these successive struggles Stanley's
journey on the river was interrupted by a series of
great cataracts, not far apart from each other and
just north and south of the equator. To pass these
obstacles he had to cut his way through over thirteen
miles of dense forest and drag his eighteen canoes
and the exploring boat Lady Alice overland.
Thirty-two battles were fought with the natives,
the last one with a powerful tribe, armed with mus-
kets. The account proceeds.
The Lualaba, which river changes its name scores
of times as it approaches the Atlantic Ocean, now
becomes known as the Kwango and Zoure. As the
river runs through the great basin which lies between
twenty-six degrees and seventeen degrees east longi-
tude, it has an uninterrupted course of over seven
hundred miles, with magnificent affuents, especially
on the southern side. Thence cleaving the broad
belt of mountains between the great basin of the
Atlantic Ocean the river descends by about thirty
falls and furious rapids to the great river between the
falls of Yellala and the Atlantic.

THE BRAVO POISONING CASE.
PFrom the London Morning Post.
The recollections of the Bravo case have this week
been revived in connection with the sale by auction
of the furniture, plate, pictures, wines and other
effects, together with the library, which commenced
yesterday and will extend over to-day and to-mor-
row. The announcement of the sale has been the
means of causing a very large number of persons to
visit the Priory during the last three days. The
particulars stated that the contents of the mansion
would be on view on Monday and Tuesday, upon
production of a catalogue, the charge for which was
one shilling, and that each catalogue would only
admit one person. On Monday the number of per-
sons who went over the several apartments in the
mansion was upward of seven hundred, notwith-
standing that the weather was very unfavorable,
while on Tuesday nearly 1,300 visited the place
great numbers of whom came in vehicles which
lined the road almost the whole of the day, between
the Bedford Hotel, Balham and Tooting-common,
which the Priory immediately overlooks. Some
idea of the interest and curiosity manifested in the
sale may be inferred from the fact that the sum of


17 was taken on Tuesday for catalogues at the en-
trance alone, independently of those who arrived
with it in their possession. The catalogue, which
contains 733 lots as those to be sold, has a photo-
graph of the Priory on the cover. There was a very
numerous attendance some time before the hour an-
nounced for the commencement of the sale yester-
day. The portion of the property disposed of con-
tained 208 lots, including the contents of all the
bedrooms and the table and bed linen. The sale
took place on the first floor landing, immediately
adjoining the room in which the unfortunate Mr.
Bravo died. Most of the articles realized prices far
beyond their value, and it was manifest that a de-
sire to possess something belonging to the place
prompted the biddings.,

THE EDDYSTONE LIGHTHOUSE.-The Eddystone
Lighthouse so long regarded as one of the grandest
triumphs of engineering, must come down. At the
recent meeting of the British Association for the
Advancement of Science, Mr. J. N. Douglass, En-
gineer to Trinity House read a paper explaining the
necessity for the demolition of this extraordinary
work. The waves have beaten in vain against
Smeaton's masonry, but they have actually under-
mined the rock upon which it stands. Based on
the solid rock" is no longer an expression of stability.
The Eddystone Rocks, lying in one of the most fre-
quented parts of the Channel, and entirely covered
at high water, were long ago regarded among the
principal dangers of the English coast. The difficul-
ty of erecting a light upon them was only overcome
after various trials and disasters. It is impossible to
approach the spot except in the most favorable
weather, and at certain times of the tide, and owing
to the exposed situation, near the entrance of the
Channel, in the full sweep of the Atlantic gales, the
sea often rises here to extreme fury, and the waves
dash over the lantern at the height of eighty-five
feet. On several occasions they have broken the
glass.

To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few

IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot's Paper in cases
of great gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It is
in!impora"nt Healing Agent. To children, weak
and nervous persons, I strongly recommend the fol.
)wing method of graduating the action of the plas-
ter according to the will or condition of the patients
viz., to put one, two, or three leaves of wet blot.
ing paper between the Sinapism and the skin.
An old piece of fine linen m;ay also be employed
instead of blotting paper.
