This little book of one hundred and sixteen pages is well written and gives most excellent advice on the subjects treated. That a second edition has been demanded is good evidence that the work has proved useful. In its present form there are several new illustrations and much new matter.

The subject is treated of under the following main headings: Obstruction to Respiration; Foreign Bodies in the Eye, Nose and Ear; Fits or Seizures; Injuries to the Brain; Effects of Heat; Effects of Cold; Sprains; Dislocations; Fractures; Wounds; Railroad and Machinery Accidents; Hæmorrhage; Special Hæmorrhages; Transportation of Injured Persons; Poisons; Domestic Emergencies: Signs of Death; Supplies for Emergencies.
