From time to time we have noted in certain issues of the JOURNAL the progress in the establishment of the Pathological Institute of New York City, in connection with the New York State Hospitals for the Insane. The founding of this excellent institution has been an object of great interest, both to the practicing physician and to those more especially interested in laboratory research studies.

We note that the former State Hospitals Bulletin, edited in greater part by the Institute, has been changed to the Archives of Neurology and Psychopathology. The change of name has many practical reasons for commendation, and we extend the right hand of fellowship to this new scientific publication. In Volume I, just issued, we find that the subject of "Correlation of Sciences" is treated at monographic length by Dr. Ira Van Gieson, director of the Institute, and in an unusually clear and thorough manner. It may be that the subject is not treated as concisely as some would perhaps desire, and that there is nothing especially new in the presentation, but we feel the glow of enthusiasm of the writer calling us anew to the ever-broadening field of psychiatry. We grasp the writer's central idea in saying that knowledge in all allied sciences should be placed under contribution to help us in solving the mystery of mind in health and disease.
