This pocket-sized volume is intended to be used as a syllabus for the laboratory, and contains blank pages for calculations, etc. The general heads of the "Table of Contents" will give an idea of the matter considered: "Composition of Healthy Urine;" "Reagents and Apparatus;" "Examination of Morbid Urine;" "Examination of Gastric Contents;" "Examination for Common Poisons;" "Study of Normal Milk." Each of these subjects is then subdivided and the different steps taken up under various subheads, the most important data being given in large type, the much less essential matters being less prominent from their smaller type presentation, but at the same time enabling the investigator to go more into detail in his examinations if he so desires. We commend the manual, for its handy form and excellent arrangements.
