The first was a young man who had cut off the ends of first and second phalanges of his left little finger, and amputating the joint, but a large part of the muscular tissues and skin had remained intact. Dr. Tilley removed a sufficient part of the bones injured, but did not amputate the finger. The result was very satisfactory. The finger is shortened onehalf inch, and a false joint formed at the point of union, but so near the natural joint as to escape observation; all the motions are preserved, and the usefulness of that finger does not seem to have been in the least diminished. The other case was a man over fifty years old, who has a perforation of the septum nasi three-eighths of an inch in diameter ; supposed to be congenital. The same person has a detachment of the retina, for which there was found no cure, but Dr. Tilley having read of some cures lately accomplished by hypodermic injections of pilocarpine, has resolved to give that remedy a trial. The present difficulty has existed for a year, and the sight of the patient is very much impaired as to the left eye, which is the one affected.
