It may be considered unusual for a journal to refer editorially to its index, because an index is an ordinary affair and is supposed to accompany the last number of the volume of all periodicals. But for several years we have been issuing with each volume an index to current literature, aside from the ordinary index, and as many of our readers, even those who have been reading The Journal for years, do not know what we are doing in this regard, we make it a point to call attention to it in this manner. The index that accompanies this number is something more than an index to the matter that has appeared in The Journal—it is a guide to the current medical literature for the six months covered.
Included in the pages from 2039 to 2058 is the ordinary index, but commencing on page 2059 is the Index
