The former learned gentlemani entirely condemned the injection of ammonia cure,: and as serted that his own treatment, that of artificial respiration, ;was the great ctnrall- for. snake-bite.

The Commission was composed of gentlemen of the high cot position in the scientific world, and who had made the ophidian their parti cular study, Professor Halford himself was .applied. to for Australian snakes, and he acobrdingly sent to India a num ber of black and tiger snakes. :.
