SIR W. MACCORMAC AT SEDAN. In an'article entitled The Surgeon on the Battle- field," a writer in the Church Family Newspaper recalls a conversation he had with Sir William Mac- Cormac in regard to his experiences in the Franco- German War. At Sedan Sir William served on the Anglo-American Ambulance. Telling of the battle of Sedan and of the shells flying about the hospital,, where lie was engaged, he said: We were a little disquieted at first, but one soon gets used to that sort of thing. Again, I had a number of amputations to perforin of legs, and thighs, and arms, and excisions of shoulder and elbow-joints. Tha removal of bullets and pieces of shell from different parts of the body was quite an ordinary occurrence. It was a case of repairs neatly and expeditiously executed* from morning till night, and sometimes all night. We must. have attended to over 500 cases in one day, and ever so many were turned away. Lots of men sought refuge in the hospital simply for food and rest. Our great difficulty was to find time to examine the gunshots at the very earliest possible moment, before inflammation had set in. What are known as primary amputations are far less dangerous than ordinary cases."
