—The Society convened in annual session at Albany January 25. Among the papers of general interest was one by Dr. William Warren Potter of Buffalo, President of the State Medical Examining Board, entitled "Medical Education; the State License to Practice Medicine." Dr. John H. Pryor, also of Buffalo, presented a paper on the duty of the State and county in reference to the treatment and care of consumptives. He advocated the establishment of a colony for consumptives upon State lands in the Adirondack region. "The Hygienic Management of Dairies," and "The Municipal Control of Milk Supply in Cities and Villages, with Report of Health Regulation," were read by Dr. E. F. Brush of Mt. Vernon and Dr. W. H. Heath of Buffalo, respectively. Dr. Heath's paper recommended quarantine in the dairies from without, carefulness in issuing dairy licenses and legislation requiring sanitary conditions in transportation.
