                                to stream out by filtration through the tissue of the 
lungs leaving the solid parts of the injection in the 
blood-vessels, and the perfection of the preparation 
will afterwards be in proportion as the solid part 
of the injection is made to occupy the interior of the 
blood-vessels to the exclusion of the size - 
Having completed the injection the whole should be 
suspended for at least a week before it is cut into, 
in order to allow the size which continues to exude 
from it to drain away as much as possible. 
It should then be thoroughly washed, and afterwards 
allowed to soak in a weak spirit and water to which 
some pure naphtha <s>has been<\s> should be added. 
To inject the 
Bronchial system 
Having thus injected one pair of lungs 
in which the course and distribution of the 
Pulmonary vessels can afterwards be studied, and 
from which preparations for the microscope, illustra=
=tive of of every part, can be constructed, another 
pair of lungs should be injected, specially to de=
=monstrate the course and distribution of the 
Bronchial vessels, and in order to carry out this 
result the following steps should be taken - 
The whole of the contents of the chest including the aorta should be removed
