The February Bulletin of the American Academy of Medicine, contains some interesting tables of the number of graduates of the different medical colleges that passed the State examinations in twenty-six States where such a test is made a condition of the right to practice medicine. An analysis of these tables affords some few surprises, though, as a rule, the facts are what might be expected, and some of those that appear otherwise are capable of explanations. For example, one homeopathic institution has no failures of its graduates to pass, in these tables, and, therefore, at first sight, makes an excellent showing which, however, is qualified somewhat when we find that thirty-one out of thirty-two of these graduates passed in the State where the college is located and before an exclusively homeopathic board of examiners. Since no other institution has so favorable a showing, these facts appear the more significant.
