wards still-born by the natural pains alone.

 My principal aim in this work is to add my efforts to those of Dr. Osborn, to put a stop to the secret use ot this convenient instrument; and since Dr. Osborn's address to male operators alone has no effect for that purpose, I shall pursue a different plan. Dr. Smellie blames his predecessors for suppressing their unsuccessful cases, and professedly published his two volumes of cases, as beacons to warn other practitioners against the same dangers. I also shall hold up various cases as beacons, not to warn those who have shunned Dr. Smellie's and Dr. Osborn's beacons, but to warn married couples and single adults, how to avoid the same dangerous and fatal treatment; I shall shew how husbands may INFALLIBLY prevent the tearing of their wives, and the cutting of their chilren, by this instrument
