The Charlotte Medical Journal and the Carolina Medical Journal have been consolidated. The journal of the new corporation will be known as the Charlotte Medical Journal, and will retain the same features, business and editorial management as the present Charlotte Medical Journal.
The journal, with its new influences, will be enlarged and, in many respects, greatly improved. Edwd. C. Register, M. D., is the editor. This has been an excellent journal in the past and in its improved condition must be one of the best.

A German exchange mentions the use of adrenalin in its direct influence upon uterine muscular structure, to prevent hemorrhage in Caesarean operations. Those who have used this remedy, after making the necessary incision through the abdomen and opening the womb, inject this solution when violent contractions occur with an almost complete anemia. There is no return of the hemorrhages during the operation. The results are mentioned as being highly satisfactory.

The 39th annual meeting of the Illinois State Eclectic Medical Society will be held in Chicago, beginning at 10 o'clock sharp, Wednesday morning, May 20th, and continue in session three days. The Eclectics of Illinois are about 800 strong, and consequently a big crowd of physicians is expected to be present. A good program is in preparation, which will make the work very interesting, and as beneficial as a six weeks Post Graduate Course, and the staff officers have been working over-time in order to make the meeting a sure success. To attend your State Society every year is a duty you owe to yourself, to your fellow practitioners, and to your patients. It is worth hundreds of dollars to you, annually, it brings you in personal contact with brother physicians in your, state, from other states, and you form life-long friendships and acquaintances there that you never would elsewhere. Several honorary members from different states, who are distinguished physicians and surgeons, have faithfully promised to be present during the meeting, and this alone should certainly be an incentive for your presence.
The head-quarters will be at the Sherman House and the meeting will be held in the auditorium of the same hotel. First, last, and ALWAYS, get a promise from your fellow non-members to attend the meeting, join our Society, and battle for the cause of Eclecticism! just keep hammering until you get them there! We must have every Eclectic in the state! We need their presence and hearty co-operation!
