This is a practical work which embodies the essentials contained in a series of lectures given by the author at the Boston Lying-in Hospital. It treats of the qualifications of nurses, care of patients, preliminary to confinement, and the arrangement of the lying-in chamber. The stages of labor are described and the care needed in normal cases of confinement. The diseases of children are next considered. The chapter entitled "The Baby" is a valuable one—as is also the one upon "Emergencies." The subjects of Pregnancy, Abortion, Miscarriage and Premature Births are well considered, and an appendix containing many valuable recipes for the preparations of foods and drinks suitable for the sick room add to its value. It has reached its second edition and is for sale generally. It comes to us from A. C. M'Clurg & Co., 117-121 Wabash Av., Chicago. Price, $1.25.
