HE student cannot begin too early in his course a habit of reading

current medical literature. In this way he will best acquire au intelligent interest in the vital questions of his profession, secure a vast fund of information which will constantly supplement the

knowledge gained from text-books, and become familiar with the approved methods of calling public attention such additions as he may make to medical science during his professional life. For these purposes the following periodicals are most admirably adapted:

THE MEDICAL NEWS (Weekly, $4.00 per Annum). THE NEWS contains each week twenty-eight quarto pages, comprising original articles, clinical lectures and notes on practical advances, latest hospital methods, summaries of progress condensed from the best medical journals of the world, full abstracts of important articles, able editorials on current topics, book reviews, medical correspondence from important centres, and news items of interest. Published for fifty years, The News is familiar with the needs of medical men and the best methods of meeting them.


(Monthly, $4.00 per Annum). THE AMERICAN JOURNAL is a medical magazine affording, in the 112 pages of each issue, ample space for elaborate original articles on important medical discoveries, discriminating reviews on valuable medical literature, and classified summaries of progress. According to the highest literary authority of the profession, from this file alone, were all other publications of the press for the last fifty years destroyed, it would be possible to reproduce the great majority of the real contributions of the world to medical science during that period.”

COMMUTATION RATE. Taken together, THE JOURNAL and News form a peculiarly useful combination, and afford their readers the assurance that nothing of value in the progress of medical matters shall escape attention. To lead every reader to prove this personally the commutation rate has been placed at the exceedingly low figure of $7.50.

SPECIAL COMBINATION OFFERS. The MEDICAL NEWS VISITING LIST (regular price, $1.25), or The Year-Book of Treatment (regular price, $1.50), will be furnished to advance-paying subscribers to either or both of these periodicals for 75 cents apiece; or Journal, News, Visiting List and Year-Book, $8.50. Circulars free on application.
