This simple pamphlet can be purchased for a nominal sum from the Superintendent of Documents in Washington, D. C. It represents a straightforward, brief statement on first aid suitable for every home. It makes no attempt at involved medical treatment but mentions merely the simple measures that have had the test of time. Although surgeons are inclined to discount the use of tincture of iodine on wounds, this type of treatment is still supported by this book on first aid. Especially important is the simple advice regarding burns: 1. Do not apply ointments, grease or oils of any kind. 2. Never apply iodine to a burn.
