Journées Médicales at Brussels  As always, the journées médicales were a great success; the queen of the Belgians and a number of ambassadors were present at the opening meeting, which was presided over by the minister of the interior. There were meetings of a general nature, addresses and surgical clinics. The festivities included a gala performance at the Monnaie, a reception at the Hôtel de Ville, and excursions to Tournai and Beloeil. Mauriac of Bordeaux, speaking on "The Confines of Medicine," said that a conflict between philosophy and science had long existed. There is a zone which biology should not abdicate; but medicine should not turn away in scorn from philosophy. Literature also affords a frontier in which exchanges have always been made with medicine. Certain physicians have broken bounds and, while continuing the practice of medicine, have enriched literature by works of value.
