JDNE 17. 1939. NOTES AND QUERIES. (2) two attempts by Mortimer Collins; (3) A. G. Hilton's admirable ' Octopus ' from the immortal Light Green; (4) Andrew Lang's ' Ballade of Cricket)' and ' The Palace of Bric-a-brac ' ; (5) best of all, Swinburne's own from ' Nephelidia,' of which one line must be quoted: " Made much of as a mother whose bosom-beats bound with the bliss-bringing bulk of a balm-breathing baby." RICHARD HTJSSET. Downloaded from https://academic.oup.com/nq/article-abstract/176/24/429/4182473 by University of Glasgow user on 30 November 2019 A book on the medical side of this subject is the ' History of Cold-Bathing, both Ancient and Modern,' in two parts, which had reached a sixth edition in 1732. The first part is by ' Sir John Floyer, of Lichfield, Kt.,' the doctor whose book on asthma Johnson read. The second is by Dr. Edward Baynard, who insists that " the best cures done by the Cold Baths are lately observed to arise from the Temperate Use of the Hot Baths first." Dr. Barnard collected a number of letters from correspondents who indulge in some vigorous writing. Pleasant verses appear here and there. A doctor in missing a cure is never to blame: So unknown is the Cause of every Disease, Lockt up in Daine Nature, who alone keeps the Keys. Tho' we write in the Light, yet prescribe in the Dark,. And, is-'t not a chance then if we e'er hit the mark? Antonius Musa applied the cold water cure successfully to the Emperor Augustus, but Horace does not seem very grateful to him, to judge from the reference in the Epistles. 429 The " R. L. Binyon, Trinity College," who appears in ' Echoes from the Oxford Magazine,' 1890, is now better known for his serious verse. But he won a place as a star in .he Oxford galaxy with his parody ' The Garden of Criticism,' with humble apologies to ' The Garden' of Proserpine.' It begins : Blunt beyond brute or Briton, Crowned with calm quills she stands, Who gathers all things written With cold unwriting hands.
