dren. It has now reached its third editon and the reception given it by the profession is most flattering.

Price of this little work has been placed at a very modest sum, $1.25.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SURGEON-GENERAL OF THE PUBLIC

HEALTH AND MARINE HOSPITAL SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 1906. Government Printing Office, Washington. We acknowledge receipt of the annual report of the United States Public Health and Marine Hospital Service for the year 1906, which gives much practical and valuable information, especially dealing with yellow fever and prevention of its spread and its outbreak in New Orleans in 1905.

PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATION OF LOCAL TREATMENT IN DIs

EASES OF THE SKIN. By L. Duncan Bulkley. A. M., M. D., Physician to the New York Skin and Cancer Hospital, Consulting Physician to the New York Hospital, Consulting Dermatologist to the Randall's Island Hospital, to the Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital, and to the Hospital for the Ruptured and Crippled, etc. Rebman Company, New York, Publishers. Price, $1.

This little volume of 142 pages comprises four lectures delivered to practicing physicians at the New York Skin and Cancer Hospital, 1906, and is prepared especially for the busy practitioner. It gives a gist of the author's experience as an expert upon skin diseases, and he simply presents for the practical use of the profession those things he considers of the greatest importance in a particular condition. Or, in other words, he enters into no discussion of the opinions and views held by different writers in the treatment of a particular disease of the skin, but he gives what he has found from his practical experience as being the best possible remedy for that condition, and urges that the average person who treats diseases of the skin would have much better results if he became thoroughly familiar with a few remedies and combinations and could clearly discriminate when one or the other was indicated

rather than have a vast number and use them indiscriminately. This little volume is practical and worthy and should be in every physician’s library.

DISEASES OF THE LUNGS. DESIGNED TO BE A PRACTICAL PRESEN

TATION OF THE SUBJECT FOR THE USE OF STUDENTS AND PRACTITIONERS OF MEDICINE. By Robert H. Babcock, A. M., JI. D., author of “Diseases of the Heart and Arterial System," D. Appleton & Co. Until recently Professor of Clinical Medicine and Diseases of the Chest, College of Physicians and Surgeons (Medical Department of the Illinois State University), Chicago : ('onsulting Physician to Mary Thompson Hospital, Hospital of St. Anthony de Padua, and of Marion-Sims Sanitarium; Fellow and former President of the American Climatological Association ; Fellow of the Association of American Physicians; Corresponding Member of the Medico-C'hirurgical Society of Edinburgh and of the International Tuberculosis Institute, etc. With twelve colored plates and 104 text illustrations. First Edition. D. Appleton & Co., New York and London, Publishers.

This work is certainly a practical one and from an authority. Dealing as it does with the diseases of the lungs, makes it of the very greatest importance to the profession. The universal prevalence almost of pneumonia which has appeared from time to time over the country and the constant appearance in large numbers of tuberculosis, leaving out of consideration all the other diseases of the lungs, would make the book worth its price and should be in the library of every physician. The author devotes 159 pages to a discussion of pneumonia alone and 215 pages to a discussion of the subject of tuberculosis. The work is profusely illustrated and is worthy of place in every specialist’s and general practitioners library.

Coca Leaf, as to the depurative action of Coca, I have used Vin Mariani to assist the elimination of uric acid, giving the wine either alone or alternating with the salicylates. I wish to express my appreciation of this remedy, which has opened a field of usefulness to me.”

It is equally pleasant to record as to give kindly suggestions. Attention directed to the applications of ('oca, based upon its physiological action, will indicate many uses for this remedy which will prove satisfying to both patient and physician.

The indescribably depressing action upon the stomach, often complained of by patients who take salicylates, may be obviated by using Vin Mariani as a vehicle. Fifteen or twenty grains of salicylate of soda in two ounces of Vin Mariani affords a palatable and efficient remedy in the elimination of uric acid. This dose mav be found serviceable twice daily, after eating, and again at bed time if indicated.--The ('oca Leaf.
