First-aid and life-saving institutions and societies scarcely have an independent existence in the United States; the combination of such societies into a national association originated in Germany. The present volume is the seventh report of the German Association, which is now in the fifteenth year of its active existence. It was formerly known as the Deutscher Samariter-Bund, but with the natural development and expansion of its work, two years ago took the present title. The report includes, in addition to the ordinary proceedings of the society, reports on the progress of life-saving work in various occupations and localities. The articles are illustrated and afford useful hints to those interested in such work. An extension of such associations is indicated as affording a preparation for emergencies in which life is liable to be sacrificed because the necessary men and materials for first aid are not at hand.
