—The energetic manner with which the preparations for the Chicago Universal Exhibition have been pushed forward, not only in America, but in England and other countries, gives promise of great success. We are glad to note that an English Royal Commission has been appointed, and that its representatives (Mr. James Dredge and Sir Henry Trueman Wood) have been over to Chicago and satisfactorily concluded all necessary arrangements for the participation of the English exhibitors. From the medical and sanitary point of view the exhibition will certainly prove of great interest. In the first place, the organizers are particularly anxious it should be thoroughly understood that the exhibition is not merely a commercial undertaking. On the contrary, every endeavour will be made to bring together collections of a purely scientific character. There will also be a great number of international scientific congresses, which will commence in May and continue till November.
