According to the author, this book was written primarily for the use of nurses, but its scope has been enlarged so that it serves admirably for the use of such persons as are interested in bacteriology, but lack training in this subject. The text is simple and clear, and the author has avoided the use of terms and the discussion of questions which would be unintelligible to beginners. It is doubtful whether the book can be used as a text-book for the medical student, although the chapter on the collection and examination of secretions and excretions is very explicit, and can not fail to be of service.
