A MONTHLY MAGAZINE.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PUBLICATION is to so present the results of the various in. quiries which have beer , and which may hereafter be made for the preservation of healtb and the expectations on human life, as to make them most advantageous to the public and to the medical profession.

The resources of sanitary science are inexhaustible. It will be a chief object of tho SANITARIAN 10 awaken public attention to the extent of the field, and to the facts indi cating how beneficently it may be cultivated. This will be done by showing the amount of ill-nealth and mortality from preventable causes of disease ; by pointing out the na. ture of those causes and the way in which t'ey operate ; by showing that such causes aro removable, and by exhibiting improved kealth, longevity and happiness as the fruits of their removal.

The laws of physiology and general Pachology will be kept in view, as the basis of health; by the observance of which, hygiene constitutes a department of science which the medical profession can advantageously share with the public, or apply to individuals according to circumstances. The detail of these relations will involve questions of manifold significance, and many of them of the utmost importance to human health.

'The practical questions of State Medicine: the health of armies and navies, marine hygiene, quarantine, civic cleanliness, water supply, drainage and sewerage. Sanitary architecture: light, space, warming and ventilation. Climate and domicile : endemic, epidemic and hereditary diseases. ()ccupation, exercise and habits; food and beverages, in all varieties of quality and quaality. In short, whatever thing, condition or circum. stance is in rapport with, or antagonistic to, the perfective culture of mind and body will be considered legitimate matter for the SANITARIAN to discuss, advocate, condemn or reject ai the bar of health. Advertisements will fall under the same category, nano will be admitted of questionable character in this regard.

In fulfilment of its mission, the SANITARIAN asks kindly consideration and assistance from all who would aid in the protection of the most precious of gifts divine human life."—1873.

• As the SANITARIAN has been hitherto, it will continue to be in the future. Devoted to the promotion of the art and and science of sanitation, mentally and physically, in all their culations: by the investigation, presentation and discussion of all subjects in this large domain, as related to personal and household hygiene, soil and climate, food and drink, habit and exercise, occupations, vital statistics, sanitary organizations and laws, everything promotive of or in conflict with health, with the purpose of rendering sani tation a popular theme of study and universally practical.

“The Editor, Dr. A. N. Bell, is well known to the mercantile community for his co-operation with the mer chants in quarantine reform, and to his profession as a leader in sanitary science."-N. Y. Journal of Commerce
