PRIME MINISTER'S OFFICE, WELLINGTON, N. Z. Prof. Frank PARSONS : Dear Sir :-) thank you on the part of the Colony for the ability and enthusiasm you have shown in writing (and Dr. Taylor in publishing) such a splendid book on New Zealand. * * The work you have so gallantly undertaken and so successfully finisht, will be not only of great advantage in making the real condition of New Zealand known to the world, but within the Colony itself will be valued and found to be of use as a work of reference. * * * In concluding my letter, I beg again to congratulate you on the production of such a satisfactory and vitallized literary work. I hope you may be spared to do much more pen work of the same high standard.


We learn from the Lancet that the Russian Medical Congress, held in St. Petersburg at the end of January, was dissolved by the police. The offense committed by the congress was the passage of resolutions declaring that ignorance of the elementary laws of hygiene and the excessiv drinking of alcohol predisposed to the spread of tuberculosis and recommending a systematic educational campaign against these evils. Moreover, the congress declared, no effectiv campaign was possible until “ personal freedom and the freedom of speech, of the press, and of meeting were granted.” To add to the enormity of its offense, the congress pointed out the danger of propagating tuberculosis thru the overcrowding in the Jewish quarters of the cities of southern and western Russia, and recommending that sick Jews " be permitted to inhabit the country or to follow a cure at a sanatorium or watering place."

This was pronounced seditious! And yet the Russian govern. ment wonders at the waning affection of America.-Med. Standard.

THE MEDICAL World has no proprietaries to boost. It works for the interests of the profession. Therefore its support must come from the profession. We are sending out some bills for overdue subscriptions with this issue. Let it be understood distinctly that those who want THE MEDICAL WORLD must pay for it. We expect remittance promptly the first of each year. We do not unceremoniously cut subscribers off if they neglect to so remit, but don't you who are behind, and who are now receiving bills, think we have waited patiently enuf? and that now we ought to be paid ? Remember we have no proprietaries to make a profit on, and our support must come directly from the profession, and not thru profit on proprietaries; and we don't use our reading columns to boost proprietaries ; like an almanac. Our reading pages belong to, and are conducted in the interest of, our subscribers, who pay for them; but they must pay for them.

I wish you success. for your success means a higher standard for the profession.-C. E. HOLTON, M.D., Bernardston, Mass.

"The Story of New Zealand” is unquestionably one of the most important studies now before the American people. The thanks of the public are due to the public spirited editor and publisher who gave the order for the work, made many valuable suggestions during its progress, and put it on the market

at a very moderate price, and to the author whose able and impartial research, keen analysis and luminous English have made the work a remarkable success. The Commoner.

“The Story of New Zealand," by Professor Frank Par. sons. Cloth bound, with over 170 illustrations, many 860 pages. $3, net. Edited and publisht by Charles F. Taylor, M.D. Equity Series. Philadelphia, 1904.

This book, the latest production of its author, a man distinguisht in law, economics and sociology, for years lecturer in the law department of Boston University, now just issued thru the remarkable public spirit of the editor of THE MEDICAL WORLD, of this city, is a book of rare beauty and worth. What most peculiarly distinguishes it, however, is its significance. It has a story to tell and a lesson to teach, and nowhere should that story be heard and that lesson so thoroly pondered as in our own land. This magnificent volume ought to be read everywhere. Fuller of attractions than any ordinary romance, along with these, in a quickening suggestivness, it shows how the problems governmental, industrial, social, and other, which now everywhere so disturb communities and commonwealths, can be manfully faced and masterfully solved. New Zealand at this hour is an example to the world of the care her people take of the interests of themselves and their fellows, shielding them from the rapacity of the cunning, the privileged, and powerful in other ways, doing this in such forms as these : In the nationalization of the country's credit and of its soil; of railway, express, telegraph and telephone service, and of insurance of all kinds ; in establishing old-age pensions, progressiv taxation of land and incomes, with exemption of small holders and of all improvements; in the resumption and division of large estates, limit of holdings, and preference for the landless in land distribution; in abolishing strikes and lockouts and insuring industrial peace; in providing state employment bureaus, store and factory acts, an eight-hour day, co-operativ employment on public works, and much else besides of similar character. It is doubtful whether at this moment one can render a better service to one's self and fellows than in spreading abroad as widely as possible, as can be done by means of this magnificent volume, a knowledge of what is being patiently and successfully wrought out in the antipodes for the redemption of society from those who prey upon it.-Reformed Church Messenger.

I want to add my mite of commendation for the way in which you are keeping up the standard of The WORLD. Its helpfulness to physicians along lines other than therapeutics is worth more each year than it costs.

JULIA H. Bass. Austin, Texas. Sec. Texas Homeopathic Med. Ass'n.

C. F. Taylor, M.D. Dear Doctor :-Having been a reader of The Medical World for many years, and always finding something of value in every issue, I wish to express to you my appreciation of your untiring efforts to make THE WORLD the best medical journal in existence for the general practician.

Your determined efforts to educate the physician in his business relations to public and private enterprises is certainly most commendable, and clearly shows you to be public spirited both in private and in public life; and altho some of us inay not agree with you in minor details, yet I believe that you have ibe backing of the best and most progressiv physicians in the country.

Were the physician in his early training to receive proper instruction as to his relation to the public and the way in which to make a social and financial success in life, there would probably be fewer physicians struggling along with the bare necessaries of life during their advancing years.

As a further appreciation, and a more substantial one, you will find inclosed a N. y. draft for $ for another four years' subscription to The World, together with my best wishes for its future welfare.

Yours fraternally, D. C. L. MEASE. Freeport, III.
