—In a considerable number of the best colleges and universities in our country, some attention is given to instruction in physiology and hygiene; but in none of them do these important branches of science occupy the prominent position in the curriculum of studies that they merit. We notice, with pleasure, that Center College, at Danville, Kentucky, has recently created a lectureship on Physiology and Hygiene, and filled the place by appointing Dr. Louis S. McMurtry, of that city. This is certainly an educational step in the right direction, and the selection of the right man for an important position; one preeminently fitted for the work assigned him.
