The use and application of electricity has been retarded largely by reason of the extravagant claims made for it at the outset. These have now become circumscribed and the exact field of electro therapeutics more clearly defined. In effect, while the claims have become more trustworthy, the use of electricity in medicine has become greatly extended and it is believed now by many, that, so far as electro-therapeutics is concerned, notwithstanding its occasional brilliant results, it is now only on the threshold of what it will become in the future.
