Dr. Griffis, in this little manual, has given us in condensed form and yet in sufficient detail, and outline of what is required of a soldier in the Hosipital Corps of the Army when he is called on for active service. The book will be of value to the Hosipital Corps of the National Guard and the Red Cross organizations. A section is alloted to each of the following subjects: the hospital corps in the post and field. elementary anatomy and physiology; first aie; nursing; mess management and cooking; material medica, thereapeutics and pharamacy; hygience of the post and camp, and minor surgery. A full and complete index add greatly to the value of the book.
