UNNA DERMATOLOGICAL PRIZE—This prize was not awarded in the years 1897 and 1898, no essay of sufficient merit having been submitted. Dr Unna has, therefore, most generously offered the accumulations of these years, with an additional 300 marks, making 900 in all ($225.00), as a stimulus for research in the line he has chosen. The subject he has selected is: "Whether, and to What Extent, the Specific Stains for Elastin Are Applicable in the Case of Elacin." Competition is open to the world, and we see no reason why the distinction should not come to this country. Essays should be sent before December 1, 1899, anonymously to Leopold Voss (Hohe Bleichen 34, Hamburg).
