Denver, Colo., May 17, 1897.

To the Editor:  —I am pleased to waive any claim of priority for developing or presenting the principle of the "Compact Portable Sterilizer" illustrated in your issue of May 1, and regret that unfamiliarity with the publications of Dr. Carl Beck in regard to his sterilizer made it necessary for me to work this instrument out for myself, and that I should appear to claim that to which I am not entitled.I shall feel that my labor has not been wasted, however, for it has resulted in giving me a most satisfactory instrument, one I believe to be in a number of essential details a great improvement upon that described by Dr. Beck; the lamp, stand and absence of wire screens and baskets being among them. Its extreme simplicity is one of its best features.
