The subjects are well discussedas to etiology and pathology, and the reading of them should be easy to the student. Little is written about feeding disturbances, as the author states that they are rare in England. The formulas for feeding are higher than in America in the total quantity of milk and of carbohydrate. Most of the therapeutic principles have not been used in this country for some time. For example, the statement is made that in summer diarrhea "a preliminary purge with castor oil (in absence of vomiting), or calomel (grain 1 in divided doses) is essential." The book is well printed. There are no illustrations.
