To the Editor:  —From the standpoint of the general practitioner, it is regrettable that there are physicians in practice who do not regularly receive and read The Journal. It is the one periodical publication which seems absolutely indispensable, the one which keeps a man abreast of the times.It is still more regrettable that there are so many of those publications which some practitioners call "practical," and which no one of reasonable understanding can read without disgust. For instance, let me quote one or two items from the December, 1915, number of a medical publication which purports to cost one dollar a year, but somehow comes indefinitely once the publisher obtains your address, and never appears to require a payment on subscription. These quotations are from the bona fide reading matter, if we may so call it, and not from the advertising or fake reading notice pages.On the cover
