Burns are cured by the agency of plantago,1 or of arction,2 so effectually indeed as to leave no scar. The leaves of this last plant are boiled in water, beaten up, and applied to the sore. Roots of cyclaminos3 are used, in combination with aizoüm;4 the kind of hypericon also, which we have mentioned as being called "corissum."5
