This is an excellent treatise by some of the more noted clinicians of Germany and promises to be of unusual worth from its thoroughness and practical character. Evidence of the first quality is furnished by the passage which gives the application to the administration of remedies of the more recent facts regarding the absorbability of different substances from the stomach—the first attempt we have seen to make this application. Professor Magnus remarks in this connection that on account of the difficult absorbability of most medicines from the stomach, we are to consider the time which they stay in that organ as lost time and that their action begins only at the time when they are expelled from the stomach into the intestine.
