This is certainly the age of progress, and the cry is continually for something new. The wonderful advances which have been made in medicine and surgery during the past fifty years would seem to warrant us in looking for newer remedies and measures in all departments of medicine; and indeed, the number of these which have of late years been pressed upon us by writers in medical journals and manufacturers, is so great that much confusion of thought and purpose is often induced thereby.
It is well, therefore, now and again, to stop and weigh and try to estimate the value or worthlessness of the new, and to see what of it should be added to our stock of old, and thus to recognize where true advance has been made.
