Mr. Worth's daughter, aged six, was thrown down by a dog and bitten

severely on the face and forehead in three places; one of the wounds

in the cheek was deep from the penetration of the dog's front teeth,

and the parts were much bruised. The lunar caustic was well applied in

half an hour after the accident to each of the wounds, and the eschar

was covered with gold-beater's skin.



On the next day the eschars were adherent. There was some swelling

from the severity of the bruise; but the child made little complaint.



On the third day, the swelling remained as before and the eschar

adherent. On the fourth, the swelling had nearly disappeared.--The

eschar separated in nine days from the infliction of the wound,

leaving the parts healed and free from scar.
