*** Dr. William A. Seibert, of Easton, Pa., emphasizes his assumption of the presidency of the Homeopathic Medical Society of the State of Pennsylvania in a little letter, in which he asks the members for their enthusiastic and strong support for the ensuing year.

*** The name of the Dr. O. A. Palmer Sanitarium of this city has been changed to the University Sanitarium, with Dr. Palmer as Superintendent. The Sanitarium his recently been enlarged by the addition of a new fire-proof building and now comprises fifty rooms.

*** The Reading (Pa.) Homeopathic Hospital is to be enlarged and a nurses' home erected. A pathological department has been recently opened, and an X-ray machine will be installed. The Reading people are determined to keep the reputation of being strictly up-todate.

*** The physicians of Chicago have begun a movement towards the organization of a State Association, whose object will be to employ all means to eradicate tuberculosis. This is to be accomplished by the securing of legislation, in addition to a systematic effort to educate the people.

*** Dr. William Davis Foster, of Kansas City, Mo., is heading an agitation for the proper recognition of the homeopathic school of medicine among the medical employed by the city. He claims that as one-fourth of the people in that city and in the State of Missouri employ homeopaths, therefore, one-fourth of the number of medical men employed by the city should be homeopaths. This seems logical.
