Since this manual has reached its third edition, it has evidently given good service to those who need an elementary guide in urinalysis and blood examinations. The ordinary processes of urinary examination are well described. Gastric analysis, on the other hand, appears to have been regarded as a sort of rare exercise which the doctor might try if the patient should happen to vomit. Incidentally the composition of test-meals is given and the use of the stomach tube recommended in cases requiring particular investigation. A similar limited view of examination of the feces appears to prevail in the author's neighborhood. Nevertheless the book is a handy volume which may supply the need of some diagnosticians.
