To the Editor:
—At a meeting of the Nebraska State Medical Society, held May 9, I called attention to a new method of handling fluid vaccin virus. The method is simple, quick and efficacious, and will at once appeal to readers of the Journal: Break off both ends of the capillary tube of virus and blow the contents into a sterilizedspoon or other small receptacle. The one or two drops which go to make up the contents of the tube are then drawn into a sterile hypodermic needle, and the needle pushed just under the outer skin, where pressure on the piston of the hypodermic deposits the drop of serum.No dressing is necessary, for the skin furnishes a protection for the virus, and you will find that nearly all, if not all, of your cases thus inoculated will "take." The method takes less time
