The writer informs us at the outset that "this work originated in a desire to answer a few of the many inquiries made by those who seek medical counsel regarding the care and education of the young." Dealing as it does with a medico-society subject and giving the author's reply to the oft repeated questions of his patients it will naturally find many if not most of its readers outside the medical profession. But to all readers, whether of the medical profession or not, we can warmly recommend this thoughtful and interesting book. We quite agree with Dr. Skene that such teachings as he inculcates cannot be expected and do not come with full force from other than medical men and women and, we may add, they are only useful when emanating from those who have grown wise from much observation and experience.
