In another column will be found details concerning a quack “institute” which has been excluded from mail privileges as a fraudulent concern. This makes the third article of the kind published in THE JOURNAL, the preceding ones being the Reinhardt case1 and the Hibbard case.2 These matters, of course, have little of scientific interest, and there are some, doubtless, who wonder why so much space is devoted to subjects that are really more fit for the general newspaper than for a medical journal. The answer is simple: The newspapers, as a rule, are so closely in bondage through their advertising columns to these concerns that, even if the matter were offered them, they would not publish it.
