In a recent issue of the Medical Review of St. Louis the editor, in an excellent article, directs attention to the great value an annual exhibit of pathological specimens of every description, of instruments, appliances, and of everything novel and interesting that has occurred in the practice of members during the past year, would have if placed on exhibition during the annual meetings of the American Medical Association.
The suggestion is a good one, and, as the writer says, would prove an incentive to many to renewed efforts, and do much to refresh a waning interest in medicine and surgery. Members would vie with each other in their efforts to contribute the best in their power, and this laudable rivalry would redound to the good of all.
Such an exhibit might be made the nucleus of a grand pathological museum, that would share honors with the superb and invaluable collection
