The Hospital-Ship Queen Victoria—Lady Students of the St. John's Ambulance Association— Sulfonal—Home for Trained Nurses in Egypt— Iodoform and Tar—Administration of Nitrous Oxide and Ether—Tying the Lingual Artery in Excision of the Tongue.

The hospital-ship Queen Victoria which has been built at Great Yarmouth as a memorial of the Jubilee, is to cruise in the North Sea, for the purpose of rendering medical and surgical assistance to the fishermen who are engaged in those waters. The vessel was taken into Osborne Bay, where the Queen and the Empress Frederick drove down through the grounds to the beach and viewed the vessel, after which they witnessed a number of experiments with a new ambulance stretcher. The Empress Frederick and her daughters afterwards went on board the ship and were shown all over her, and the Empress kindly promised to send a number of books for the library.
