To Be Placed on Irritable Wounds

BEEF AND HOG BLADDERS FOR THE HOSPITALS. – Those of our citizens who may have in their possession beef or hog bladder, are requested to send them to the various hospitals in the city.  They are used to contain ice to be placed upon irritable wounds.  The attention of the butchers is especially directed to this suggestion.
