This report, which is handsomely illustrated, details the operations of the Service for the year ended June, 1894, and conveys the usual professional information contained in the necropsy reports, and the carefully compiled statistical tables which have constituted a valuable feature of these reports for many years. The operations of the quarantine service for the period mentioned are fully set forth, and the continued evolution of that branch of the Service is manifested in the voluminous reports and regulations reprinted in this volume.
As these operations passed into history nearly two years ago, it is not practicable here to discuss situations which no longer exist, or which may long ago have been modified by changes in regulations. As a contribution to the governmental history of the year 1894, the report is an extremely interesting one.
