Lippencott's Magazine sustains its reputation as a family magazine of high character. The October and November numbers are full of highly readable instructive material from the very best of writers. Two exceedingly interesting papers are "A Memory of Picket's Brigade," by LaSalle Picket, and "The Racial Potpourri on the Isthmus," by Herbert Dunlap. This journal carries satisfaction and happiness into every family.

McClure's Magazine for October contains a very excellent article on Augustus Saint Gaudens. Another on Japan's Strength in War, from the article furnished by George Kennan, on General Political Conditions in Russia. Also an article on Alcohol and the Individual, by Henry Smith Williams, with an editorial on the Peasant Saloon Keeper, as the Ruler of American Cities, a delightful condition to contemplate. The stories are unusually good. This magazine is an ideal family paper, which is placed by its price within the reach of all. It cannot be recommended too highly.

Among the good, practical medical journals that reach this table, I take pleasure in mentioning The Medical Summary. This journal has been running nearly thirty years. It has cut a niche of its own. It is practical, liberal, up-to-date and is certainly valuable to every busy doctor, who desires to catch the practical facts for his every day use.

The most advanced treatment of severe chronic bladder trouble, authorizes the introduction of a catheter into each ureter, the catheter to remain for from four to eight days, leaving the bladder perfectly dry. This method is especially advisable in surgical operation upon the bladder walls after the removal of stones and after prostatectomy.


Ellingwood's Therapeutist, Vol. 2, 1908, was edited by Finley Ellingwood M.D.
