—The brief comments we made on this subject in connection with a resolution recently adopted by the Illinois State Board of Health, have brought to our table a shower of questions. Some of them are accompanied by names of members of the profession worthy of full attention, while others are anonymous and worthy of little notice. Two of the more important of these questions, viz.: "Is the regulatiion of the practice of medicine by law desirable, and if so, who shall decide upon the qualifications and conditions required?" were answered directly and clearly in the editorial columns of The Journal for March 12, 1887, p. 295-6, and for March 19, p. 322-3. But for a more full consideration of the whole important subject our readers must wait until the more pressing work of the next thirty days has been accomplished. Until then we will keep their questions on file.
