Excerpt from Things Worth Knowing: A Treasury of Useful Information Answering Thousands of Questions, and Adapting Itself to the Needs of Men and Women in Every Walk of Life

To Stop Bleeding. - If the blood issues in spurts from the cut or wound, it is an evidence that an artery has been sev ered. Bind the limbtightly just above the wound with a strap, towel, scarf or handkerchief. If greater pressure is needed to stop the flow, place a knotted handkerchief or a closely folded newspaper directly over the artery, under the strap Or bandage, and with a cane or ruler slipped under the strap, twist the bandage until the flow ceases. Send for a physi eian. If the blood issues in a steady flow, but not in spurts, a vein has been divided, and the danger is not so great. Apply the bandage below the wound. If a scalp wound make a pad of linen or waste and bandage tightly with a folded handkerchief or towel. If the bleeding appears to be from a large wound, wash with cold water, and keep in an elevated position, Join the edges with sticking-plaster, apply a pad of lint, and bandage. If the gums bleed excessively when a tooth is drawn, fill the cavity with lint above the edge of the gum, so that the closed month will press upon the packing. Use only cold food.
