The first number (August) of a new medical magazine, the Journal of the Association of Military Surgeons, has just come to hand. It forms a volume of 224 pages, much of which in this issue is taken up with the proceedings of the association, lists of members, etc., though there are also several original articles. During the present association year it will be issued quarterly, but it is the intention to ultimately adopt the monthly form, and to devote the space in future issues more fully to original contributed matter. The Journal occupies a hitherto unfilled niche in American medical journalism and it has our cordial wishes for its success. The list of the membership of the association it represents shows that it starts with what ought to be a very respectable assured patronage. It is under the able editorial management of Dr. James Evelyn Pilcher, Captain (retired), U. S. A.
