" This work will prove a very useful addition to the library of every medical
man who has much to do with the treatment of the diseases peculiar to women.
It is evidently the outcome of the author's personal experience in dealing with
this class of disease, and therefore possesses the advantage of being thoroughly
practical. Another point in its favour is that it deals with its siibject from the
general practitioner's point of view rather than that of the specialist. The
symptoms of each disease are clearly stated, and the methods of treatment are
those which have been well tried and approved by experience. In inflammatory
affections of the generative organs, Dr. Bushong is a thorough believer in the
benefits of complete rest, copious hot water injections, and of plugs of cotton wool
well soaked in glycerine. To the use of the bromides and ergot, he adds that of
hydrastus canadensus and salix nigra. He also speaks highly of hamamelis. We
have read the book with pleasure, and feel justified in recommending it to our
readers."—Quarterly Medical Journal.
