Expense of material is frequently an important factor in providing generously for use in a clinic. Conditions requiring the application of a firm even bandage, for which the usual cotton roller is not best suited and for which the flannel bandage (strictly speaking) is too heavy, warm and expensive for constant use, can be provided for by bandages prepared from medium-weight shaker flannel. A bolt is usually 50 to 56 yards in length and 24 to 26 inches in width. My custom has been to buy a "Berlin domet" shaker flannel, which is 26 inches wide and costs 4% cents a yard. The bolt of goods is cut into seven strips, each eight yards long, which are then rolled compactly. The length of each roll, 26 inches, is equal to the width of the goods, which will allow the selvedges to be trimmed off and leave sufficient to cut into
