The sections of medicine, surgery, etc., contains forty-nine papers. H. C. Tweedy, M.D., F.R.C.P., reported a case of argyria on account of its comparative rarity, the prolonged use of nitrate of silver in locomotor ataxy having declined. The patient first came under his observation in 1871, suffering with well marked ataxic symptoms. He was ordered ⅓ grain nitrate of silver three times daily. This treatment was continued at intervals till 1876. In 1882 he again appeared at Steevens Hospital, when the change in his complexion to a dull slaty blue was noticed for the first time. The ataxic symptoms had, however, disappeared.
