The popularity of this little work attests the fulfillment of the author's hope for its usefulness. It is written in an entertaining style, and from a practical standpoint, and the professional relation of the nurse to the physician is kept constantly in view. The present edition is brought up to date by special attention to etiology and prophylaxis, disinfection, the Brand method of bathing, serum therapy, the care of soldiers in camp and during transportation, and by a short article on the bubonic plague. This work is probably the best of the smaller textbooks on nursing.
