i Nothing seem eWorthin to put an
advertist-mcnt in tho paper, but noth
ing Is more difficult than to put the
thing adverted into tho public mind.
There ar advertisements and adver
tlscmcnis those which are read by the
er ad forgotten, and those which aro
whod hold of by the mind. The pa;cs
of certain journals are looked upon by
certain claws of advertisers as a deep
pool is contempliitod by a crafty lishor
man as a place to display bis cunning
fly or bait, peculiarly adapted to the
prey he seeks, lucre are scores oi
anglers who drop their lines in the
form of an advertisement and sit uuet
Ij by until a bite comes, and they have
not to wait long, for nothing is too
trong for tho credulity of mank nd.
Some little time ago there appeared an
advertisement in a weekly journal iu
which tbo writer affected to make an
' oflcr to tho reader, which ho assumed
no one would answer, simply on ac
count of Incredulity. His proposition
was mado as a test to show if there
u any faith left in mankind. Ho
'didn't expect any reply, but he simply
made tho experiment Tho offer was
to tho effect that if any of tho reader
would send him livo threo-cont stamp
the would return thora a present su. ti
tle to their wishes. Nino people out
f ten would have said that no man or
woman would bo gull enough to be
iakon In by such a bait as this; never
theless, several parties sent the stamps,
entered into particulars of tho station of
life in which they moved, and Indicated
the knd of presents that would bo ac
ceptable. O110 young lady stated that
ahe was about to' go to a ball and
no doubt believed that she would
cither get a silk dress or a pair of
diamond bracelets by return po t.

well worth twenty cents. In return
for his twenty cents he duly received
the promised tuunphlot, entitled, "A

was a very small pamphlet, for it con
tained only live sentences, and they
did not iiito till three page. It ran
thus: -Of all the ills that affect hu

a well-known fact that anv person,

the other cover was another little ad
vertisement to her male clients, wh ch
began thus: "Do you want beautiful

state that "there Is no actual necessity
for her clients to have a personal inter

for as it has been ascertained beyond

WOUNDS IN ANIMALS.
flow They May Ba Ilepaired The Two
Methods In I'ae.
There are two principal methods by
nhcli wounds are repaired. The tint
of these, and the more favorable of the
two, is tjie method termed by surgeons
hoaling by-the fir.-t intontion. Undor
favorable circumstances this takes place
in an incised wound when the. cut sur
faces are brought carefully together and
maintained in close contact after bleed
ing ha coased. The two surfaces then
become cemented together by the form
ation of a thin intermediate layer of new
tissue. The other principal mode of
repair is healing by tne second inten
tion. That is what takes place in large
incised wound when the cut surfaces
can not be brought and maintained in
-apposition, and it is the invariable
method of repair in punctured and lac
erated wound. Here the gap in tho
texture becomes filled up by the growth
of new material taking place, from tho
bottom of the wound, while a new skin
grows inwards from the edge of tho
wound. This skin, however, is not ex
actly similar to tho natural healthy skin
lrom which it extends, being thinner,
more delicate, and without any hair.
A third and much rarer process
of healing in wounds is what is
termed immediate union. In this,
it is said, the divided surfaces being
brought into accurate contact unite
without the intermediate growth of any
new texture. It is questionable if such
is really the case, but it is certain that
sometimes in. small wountfa the cut
surfaces when planed tnjetlor unite ao
speedily and exactly that m soar Is left.
In an incised wound treatment in the
first instance should be directed toward
favoring union by the first intention.
The essentials for this are a sound
constitution on the part of the animal,
accurate and close contact with the
divided surface, and the absence of in
flammation in the wound. Without
man's interference this process would
seldom or never ensue in the lower ani
mals, for in all wounds except the
smallest the cut surfaces gape apart
unless some means be adopted to keep
them together. The means commonly
adopted by surgeons for this purpose
are the application of strips of plaster
across the surface of the wound, or the
passing of sutures through its edgo. In
adopting the former plan, a few strips,
according to tho length of tho wound,
should be applied at intervals: but tho
entire surface should never be entirely
covered by the plaster. Tho surfaces,
moreover, should not bo brought to
gether until bleeding has been arrested,
for should a clot of blood be effused into
the wound it would prevent healing
by this method. Sutures are simply
stitches used to tie or sew tho edges or
surface of a wound together. They are
used of various materials, such as thread,
horse-hair, cat-gut and wire. Nothing
further need bo said about the applica
tion of these, sinco their Insertion into
a wound should always be left to a
veterinary surgeon. In a punctured or
a contused or lacerated wound, whero
the surface can not be maintained to
gether, or where inllammation ensues
in such a wound, then the treatment
must be that favorable to healing by
tho second intention. Inllammation.
shown by redness, swelling aud great
tenderness ot tho edges of the wound,
should be combattcd by assiduous bath
ing with hot water. . In a contused and
lacerated wound, such as." "broken
knees.1' particles 'of sand and other
foreign aiatier must bo carefully and
lightly sponged from the surface; in
punctured wounds, or stabs, it must bo
mado certain that nothing remains in
tho bottom of the wound; and in all
classes of wounds healing in this way
provision must be made to allow the
discharge from the wound a ready es
cape. With the last object it is often neces
sary, in a punctured' wound, to enlargo
tho opening, or to make what is called
a "counter-opening" that is, one run
ning from the surface upward to the
deepest part of the wound. The neces
sity for a free escape from a punctured
wound is seen in the case of "wricks"
of tho feet. These are generally simple
in their effects if the track of the nail
bo carefully followed and enlarged; but
if not, tho nail hole is apt to become
obstructed, and prove insufficient for
tho escape of the discharge from tho
wound. In that case the discharge ao
cumulates within the hoof, and grad-alh-
forces its way toward the surface,
in the direction of least resistance, and
hence ceases to burst out at the top of
tho hoof. In all wounds union is pro

Healthy wounds are seldom much
benefited by the application of lotions
or ointments. When the wound is of
small size it is best to leave it uncovered;
and if it be m summer it may be smeared
with zinc ointment, or with forty parts
of olive oil to one of carbolio acid. In
largo wounds tho surface should bo
lightly covered with a cloth kept wet
viiiu a soiuuon ot carooiio acid in forty
parts of water. When a wound show's
what is called "proud flesh" it should
be rubbed over at its most prominent
part with sulphate of copper (blues tone),
or washed with a solution containing
two ounces of jsugar to a pint-bottle of
water. English I eterinary Surgeon, in
