This book is one of the most attractive volumes published by the Society. Beside the papers and proceedings, it contains several excellent Roentgen ray plates exhibited by Dr. De Forest Willard. An interesting paper by Dr. Harry Sherman of San Francisco, on iodoformization of bones and joints in tuberculosis, led to an interesting discussion, the burden of which was to the effect that iodoform emulsion was negative in its results in these cases. One of the speakers with charming naïveté asserted that the standards of general surgeons were different from those of the orthopedic surgeons!
