The fever epidemic in Jacksonville continues. The whole number of cases reported to date, September 25, is 1991, and 217 deaths. A few new cases are reported at McClenny and some other towns in Florida. Seventeen cases and 4 deaths have been reported in Decatur, Alabama; and 14 cases and 5 deaths in Jackson, Mississippi. These indications of the spread of the disease westward in the direction of the Mississippi, has greatly increased the excitement among the people of the South and Southwest, and added much to the efforts at maintaining rigid inland quarantines, some of which appear to be judicious and well directed by the Health Boards and the Superintendent of the Marine Hospital Service, while others are injudicious and wholly unnecessary.

Dr. F. Siebenmann has qualified as Privat-Docent of Otiatry in Basle, and Dr. Aaron as Privat-Docent in Laryngology.
