Cure for Arch.

--That almost intolerable complaint, the camp itch, may be speedily and effectually relieved by the acetate of copper. This can be prepared by placing a copper cent or any other piece of copper in a small quantity (say two table spoonsful) of strong vinegar for some twenty-four hours. Then apply to the parts affected three or four times a day, each morning washing them with fine soap and water.
