-0:- A HINT TO BARBERS. 1 find the most efficacious plan is to apply a hot fomentation consisting of a large piece of boracic lint wrung out of very hot water. This should be done frequently. At night the best application is an ointment of ammoniated mercury. The body should be watched for the appearance of any spots, and the moment one appears it should be attacked with the ointment. Take great care that the rash does not get into the scalp it is very difficult to get nd of with- out cutting the hair short. The possibility of catching this disease at a barber s shop forms one of the most important reasons whv a barber should be particularly careful to 'disinfect all his mugs, razors, sponges, etc I never like to see sponges used at a barber's shop; the best things to use are small squares of towelling, a fresh one bein" used for each customer these squares can be boiled before being used again. The damage done to a barber s credit by the oc- currence of even one case of this distressing malady is so great that all barbers would be well advised to dispense with sponges and exercise the greatest precautions in steri- lising their brushes
