ise held out at first." The newly introduced drug, euchinin, a derivative of quinine, is mentioned as worthy of trial.

The subject of pleurisy with effusion is treated in a very interesting and instructive manner. The after-treatment, or the treatment following aspiration, where the dullness does not clear up, modified voice sounds remaining, and with diminished movement and breathing, seems commendable. One case is reported where this condition readily cleared up under

the following method : "Simply to make the patient lie on his sound side and breathe deeply, and to assist his expirations by well-timed comprerions of the base affected."

A very plausible theory is set forth explaining the fact that pleural effections are slow in reabsorbing, while pericardial fluid reabsorbs rapidly and readily. “In the pericardium the fluid

is never at rest, the membrane is constantly washed by it, and the stomata kept clear. In the pleura almost absolute rest prevails, and the stomata and lymph capillaries are likely to become clogged by sedimentary fibrin."

Beginning on page 79, the "surgical treatment of pericarditis" especially purulent pericarditis, reminds us that surgery is still progressing.

Beginning with page 129, "Some special therapeutic agents" forms an interesting chapter.

“Diseases of the Skin" are treated by Henry W. Stelwagon, M. D.

“Diseases of the Nervous System." by William G. Spiller, M. D., is an excellent article.

The last section is devoted to “Obstetrics,” and is commendably treated by Richard C. Norris, M. D.

A good index adds to the usefulness of the volume.

OPPORTUNITY.

Master of human destinies am I:

Fame, love and fortune on my footsteps wait, Cities and fields I walk; I penetrate Deserts and seas remote, and passing by

Hovel and mart and palace, soon or late I knock unbidden once at every gate. If sleeping, wake; if feasting, rise before I turn away.

It is the hour of fate,
And they who follow me reach every state
Mortals desire, and conquer every foe
Save death, but those who doubt or nesitate,

Condemned to failure, penury an' woe,
Seek me in vain and uselessly implore,
I answer not and I return no more.

-John James Ingalls,
