The present volume seems to possess the extremely good qualification of not being as large as some of its predecessors, consisting of a single volume and yet made up of 1245 large octavo pages, so that the work is complete. The first edition was supposed to be fully up-to-date, yet the author and his compilators have found it necessary, in the short time intervening since the first edition was issued, to materiany change important features in nearly every division of the work. Among the list of collaborators are: Doctors John Ashhurst, A. D. Blackader, Dillon Brown, C. W. Burr, W. E. Casselbery, H. Dwight, W. S. Christopher, Archibald Church, J. M. DaCosta, I. N. Danforth, E. P. Davis, G. E. de Schweinitz, W. A. Edwards, J. P. Crozier Griffiths, W. M. Hardaway, Marcus P. Hatfield. Martin Hearst, C. G. Jennings, J. Hendee Lloyd, H. M. Lyman, C. K. Mills, W. Osler, W. Pepper, F. Peterson, E. O. Shakespeare, M. A. Starr, V. C. Vaughan, J. M. White and J. C. Wilson. The chapters in the book are covered in such a complete manner that to mention any one of them would almost do an injustice to the others, yet we cannot help but mention as those deserving special reference, the section edited by Doctors C. K. Mills, Frederick Peterson and Archibald Church. Diseases of the nervous system make up a large portion of the diseases of childhood, and the selection of these writers as well as the others having to do with nervous diseases described in the book, has been specally fortunate.

SCIATICA AND LUMBAGO.
These diseases, although different in origin and nature, the one a neuralgic and the other a rheumatic affection, are generally associated. Hence in the older ordinary treatment of sciatica and lumbago, the element of pain was combated with regard to constitutional medication. Tongaline, either alone or in its tablet combinations, besides being anti-neuralgic and anti-rheumatic, exerts a specine action on the excretory system, thus not only palliating the pain but thorougly eliminating from the body the direct cause of the disease. It may also be administered internally and externally.
Tongaline liquid or a Tongaline and Lithia tablet should be taken at frequent intervals, with copious draughts of hot water. The painful parts should also be sponged, first with alcohol, then with Tongaline liquid, and hot cloths saturated with the remedy held in apposition by oiled silk bandages, heat being applied by hot water bag or other convenient method to facilitate absorption. In like manner Tongaline liquid may be given externally by the aid of electricity. Samples sent on application. Mellier Drug Company, St. Louis, Mo.
UNITE THE FORCES.
By Geo. H. Chance, D. D. S., M. D., Portland, Oregon.
[Read before the Pacific Coast Dental Congress August 24, 1898.]
When President McKinley issued his proclamation calling for volunteers to drive the Spaniards from Cuba, the latent fighting forces, which were scattered far and wide, had to be brought together, organized and properly drilled and equipped before they could become effective and utilized. Not only so, there had to be a union of sentiment in the purpose for which the fighting bodies were organized to bring about the splendid achievements of our army and navy which have resulted in such glorious victories to our arms, making a proud epoch in the onward march of our nation, and in the emancipation of millions of human beings from the tyranny of a groveling superstition united to a despotic power.
It is sometimes said by the unthinking that there is no sentiment in business, which is certainly a mistake. Had there been no national sentiment aroused at the blowing up of the Maine, this country would not have voted the men and money it has done to prosecute the war against Spain, and which in the short period of less than five months has terminated so successfully in behalf of suffering humanity, and of placing this nation in a position to command the respect, if
