—The latest mode of blood-letting is given in a late number of the British Medical Journal by Dr. Charles Coppinger, who relieved a serious cerebral congestion by introducing the aspirator needle into the external jugular vein and abstracting at first four ounces of blood, and half an hour later six ounces more.
