—This Society held its thirty-fourth annual meeting in this city, commencing on Tuesday, May 20, 1884, and continuing until Thursday evening following. The attendance was large and the meeting a profitable one. The full report of the proceedings, which had been prepared for this number, must be deferred until the next, on account of the unusual space occupied by the address of the Chairman of the Section on Surgery and Anatomy in the American Medical Association. The reports and papers read were, in most cases, well prepared and appropriate. As everywhere else, the idea of germs as efficient causes of disease, and germicide remedies, pervaded a large part of the papers and discussions; and it was noticeable that some members economized their materials and labors by favoring the State Society with the same matter that had previously been brought fully before the profession through local societies and medical journals.
