DENVER, Aug. 4, 1904.

To the Editor:—The note-book in the hands of the student comes down to us from the days when medical books were few and costly. In the Alumni Register of the University of Pennsylvania for June is the account of the expenses of a medical student of one hundred years ago. Among the items in this account we find: "Bell's Anatomy, $22," "Chaptal's Chemistry, neatly bound, $5.75," and "Barton's Elements of Botany, $6.00."
