—From 1882— 83 to 1886-87, inclusive, the six diploma-granting faculties of France graduated 3057 students. Bordeaux graduated 378, Lille 76, Lyon 242, Montpellier 338, Nancy 104, and Paris 1919. From 1882 -83 the number of graduates steadily diminished from 662 to 546; in 1886-87 the number rose to 624, but in this year 99 diplomas were granted, under the new organization of the service de santé, to members of the corps de santé of the marine, leaving 525 diplomas granted to actual students of medicine, which is proportional to the diminishing ratio of the preceding sessions.
