A correspondent recotn'nends the following mode of curing burns—namely, IlThe application ofa fourfold layer of soft old !rish linen (not cotton) "veil steeped and Mtorated with cold milk over the injured part, and, as the linen gets warm from the intensity of the intlamation, the applica- tion of more cold milk. squeezed through a sponge, upon the four-fold layer. This .'pphcatton should be very frequentiyrepeated, and the linen should not be removed, un'fss it shou'd become sour from the frequent application of the milk." %Ve cannot be expected to give an opinion on the value ot this suggestion, but we publish it for the consideration of medical men, amongst whom, we behave, the treatment of burns has long been a subject of con- troversy.
