This is a book about the same size as the text-book on surgery, and the others of the American text-book series.

We note with pleasure that the metric system of dosage has been applied throughout, in addition to the old apothecary doses for those who do not care to employ the modern form. We regret to see that in the article on actinomycosis, the author has failed to notice the work of the Agricultural Department of our Government in this matter, and we believe that the use of potassium iodid was first promulgated by this bureau, and that the foreign authors are not entitled to priority in the matter. We trust that Dr. Salmon will be a little more liberal in the distribution of the valuable documents of the Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Animal Industry; they may in time reach the book-writers.
