—The annual meeting of this important State organization is to commence in this city on Tuesday, May 17. It is highly important that there should be a full attendance from all parts of the State. Neither the local Committee of Arrangements nor the profession throughout the State should allow the fact that the American Medical Association is to have its annual meeting in the same city only three weeks later, to lessen their interest in, and attention to the professional organization of their own State. The legitimate basis of all efficient general organization of the profession consists of the local City, County and District Societies embracing the general practitioner and specialist alike. Representatives from these make the State Societies; and on the efficiency of the several State organizations will always depend the character, scientific value, and permanency of the National Association.
