Dr. J. J. Kinyoun, of the Marine Hospital Service, in response to our request, sends us the following statement of the medical exhibit of the Marine Hospital Service at the World's Columbian Exposition:
The U. S. Marine Hospital Service exhibit is divided into three classes, viz.: The Marine Hospital Service proper, the Quarantine Service, and the Laboratory of Hygiene. In the hospital exhibit are displayed the statistics of the service since its reorganization in 1871, the number of patients treated annually, the statistics of the medical examinations of the Immigration Service, and of the Life Saving Service, and of applicants for pilot's license. The blanks and books, hospital furniture, surgical appliances are shown, such as are now furnished to the twenty-six Marine hospitals and nine National quarantine stations.
The workings of the National Quarantine and Public Health Service are represented by models and the various apparatus in full operation.
