In the consideration of the treatment of epilepsy a German writer takes a very hopeful view of these cases. He says that many get well with but little treatment. One important feature is usually overlooked; he believes the patient should always be toned up to the highest possible point. He believes in giving small frequent meals, and in feeding the patient largely upon vegetables and milk, excluding almost entirely salt and spices. He believes hydrotherapy has a place that should be adjusted to the individual patient. He does not present a great many remedies, but believes the bromides are the most important.
