This is a fitting companion to the more elaborate work of Dr. Stevenson above noticed. The estimation in which it is held is well attested by the rapid exhaustion of six previous editions, which have as they appeared, received our favorable attention. We find in this issue that the author has been awake to the advances made in our knowledge of bacteriology, and has greatly improved the chapters on Food, Water Supply, Removal of Excreta and House Refuse, Purification of Sewage, Communicable Diseases, Prevention and Disinfection, Sanitary Laws and Official Duties of Health Officers.
