Bolling Water Uied In
New York, Dec. 6.—After tests cov
ering two years, a physician of this
city has announced a new method for
treating tumors. It is by the use of
boiling water. He uses a syringe
with a metal cylinder and adjustable
piston, with needles of varying size.
Using the ordinary asceptic precau
tions, water Is taken directly from a
cauldron and injected into the sub
stance of the tumor. Tho water must
be at a temperature of from 190 to
212 degrees Fahrenheit, or even high
The water, he says, should be hot
.enough to coagulate the blood and tho
albuminoids of the tissues Immediate
ly. but it should not be forced In
so extremely hot, and under such
pressure as to scald and produce a ne.
crosis of the skin. During the treat
ment the patient is put under the In
fluence of narcotics.

m fine particles, _
especially painful and severe when con
fined to the hands, which often become so
badly affected that the sufferer is unable
to perform the lightest work. This, like
aU other types of Eczema, is due to add
poisons in the blood and not to local
causes. The trouble is more than skin
deep, and washes, soaps, powders and
salves nor anything else applied to the
surface can possibly do more than soothe
the burning and itching or relieve tempo
rarily the inflammation and pain.
It is the acids thrown off by the blood
and which are forcing their way through
the pores that cause the skin to harden,

tion and soreness.

heal, the akin becomes smooth and soft,
and all signs of the Eczema disappear.
