Cotton vs. Lint.

Some discussion has been indulged in by the newspapers as to the relative virtues of cotton and lint for dressing wounds. Dr. P. J. R. Edwards, of Cleveland, Tenn., writes that his experience is in favor of cotton. He commenced the use of it more than twenty-five years ago, in the dressing of wounds of every description, and since that time has had no occasion to prepare lint in the old way. The cotton is prepared by carding it into bats of the desired thickness is a pair of hand Guards.
