• INTERNATIONAL CLINICS. A Quarterly of Illustrated Clinical Lectures and Especially Prepared Original Articles on Treatment and on the Different Departments of Medical Science, by Leading Members of the Medical Profession Throughout the World. Volume 4. Series 17. 1907. Published by The J. B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia.

I have reviewed the various volumes of these clinics and have always found that I had much to praise and but little to criticise. This volume sustains the character of the previous numbers in most particulars.

The articles under the head of Surgery, Gynecology and the Genito-Urinary diseases are especially attractive. Not less could be said of those of Orthopedics and Neurology. The volume is well illustrated.

  • THE EVERY DAY DISEASES OF CHILDREN AND THEIR RATIONAL TREATMENT, By George H. Candler, M. D., Chicago. Published by the Clinic Publishing Company.

This work introduces the most modern methods in the care of sick children. It presents a chapter on pertinent points in pediatry, which are indeed excellent. The indications for the alkaloidal remedies are made conspicuous, and these remedies are advised through the work, in the treatment of all the diseases. The tongue indications in children's diseases are interesting and valuable—a great advantage in diagnosis.

This direct method of prescribing is certainly a pronounced advance on the methods of most of the writers on pediatrics of the old school. The position taken by the author in this, should place this work at once in a conspicuous place, among works on this subject.
