The Allg. Med. Ct.-Ztg. of Berlin is now in its seventy-first year, and has been published heretofore two or three times a week. It now announces that a single weekly edition will be issued henceforth. The Archives Gén. de Médecine has changed from a monthly to a weekly with the new year, the eightieth of its existence. The Italian Riforma Medica has long proudly boasted that it was the only medical daily published in the world. It, too, has fallen into line with the weeklies, and the nineteenth volume, commencing with the current year, brings it as an enlarged weekly journal. The Bulletin Médical of Paris is about the only one of our exchanges that still clings to two editions a week. The Gazette Hebdomadaire, which belied its title by publishing two numbers a week, ceased publication with the close of 1902, its forty-ninth year. One of its features will be much missed unless inaugurated in some other journal. We refer to the lists with abstracts which it published of the medical theses presented at the French universities. The Paris Gazette des Hopitaux has three editions a week, and also the Italian Gazzetta degli Ospedali, but in the latter the original communications are restricted to the Sunday issue, which appears with a colored cover. The journal is thus practically a weekly with two supplements for abstracts.
