I want to add here that should you run out of sterilized gauze at any time you can make it from any soft cloth by boiling it for ten minutes in the bi-chloride solution and hanging in the air to dry.
The pain attendant upon any surgical manipulation can be prevented by the hypodermic injection of a solution of cocaine. When you get your hypodermic have the instrument men show you how it works. He can show, you much better than I can tell it. Insert the needle half an inch from the wound and inject a few drops of the solution into the skin. Proceed thus entirely around the wound and by the time you are through the wound will be perfectly painless. Before replacing the instrument in its case always dry it out and replace the small brass wire that you will find in the needle.
