The National Meeting.
The meeting of our National Association this year at Kansas City, Missouri, while not as largely attended as the meeting at so central a point should have been, was one of great interest and benefit. The President, Dr. Perce, exercised shrewdness and tact in getting the business out of the way and in-devoting the largest possible time to the reading and discussing of papers. An excellent feature was the special addresses, which were prepared for the general session and were delivered one or two each day.
The department work presented a great many new and valuable measures and was exceedingly interesting. While the amusement portion of the program was entirely satisfactory it was introduced in a way so as not in the least to interfere with the important sessions. The society will meet next year in Chicago. The following officers were elected:
President, Dr. John K. Scudder, of Cincinnati; first vice-president, John T. McClanahan, Missouri; second vice-president, H. Harris, M. D., New York; third vice-president, J. M. McKlveen, M. D., Chariton, Iowa; recording secretary, William P. Best, M. D., Indianapolis, Ind.; corresponding secretary, H. H. Helbing, M. D., St. Louis, Mo.; treasurer, Dr. E. G. Sharp, M. D., Guthrie, Okla.
