the brain sank to the base of the skull, Cheap Zenegra on which it rested, and
the fluid accumulated mainly over the surface of the hemispheres,
in a layer averaging about 5 mm. in thickness. To determine
whether, as maintained by M. Luys, the brain left the base of
the skull when the attitude was changed, he had opened the
cranium at the base, instead of Zenegra 50 at the vault; having opened the
spinal canal, and so arranged the meninges that the cerebro-
spinal fluid could not escape, he had caused tlie subject to rest
on the vault of the cranium, and, after removing the face and
exposing the base of the skull, he had made little openings in
the roof of the orbit, and then at the level of the sphenoidal
fosssB ; and, no matter what the attitude might be, the brain did
not leave the base of the cranium until the cerebro-spinal fluid
was drawn off.

THE PASSENGER SHIP MEDICAL SERVICE BILL.
We are informed that the bill has been so amended by the
committee having it in charge as to require the sanitary reports
of medical ofticers to be made to the Port Physician or Health
Officer of the port of entry, as a necessary prerequisite for the
granting of pratique. It was very pertinently suggested at the
recent meeting of the American Medical Association that a
sanitary report made to the captain or master alone would
never leave his ofiice, and that one made to the owners of a
vessel, if condemnatory, would merely lead to the surgeon's dis-
charge. The amended bill also provides a more serious penalty
than a fine of two or three hundred dollars, which would be a
mere bagatelle to a wealthy corporation.
THE SOCIAL ELEMENT AT THE WASHINGTON MEETING.
A RESIDENT of Washington Writes to us as follows: "The
usual disgraceful performances took place at the receptions.
Mrs. L. generously opened her beautiful house, and provided as
fine a table as Demenet could serve. She was rewarded by
having men stalk in (hats on their heads) from the front room
to the dining-room, where they fought like wolves for places at
the tables, overturning piles of plates, breaking her expensive
ornameuts, and soiling her rugs with pools of tobacco-jiiiee."
We all know that a small army of hangers-on attend the
meetings of the American Medical Association, and that most
of these fellows manage to get cards admitting them to the
receptions, where their boorishness tends to bring the associa-
tion into discredit. In view of these facts, it seems to us that
the interest of the profession would be furthered if measures
were taken to put a stop to the admission of these interlopers.
THE INDISCRIMINATE SALE OF POISONS.
We have frequently called attention to the unwarrantable
and dangerous freedom with which poisons of various sorts were
to be had by the public. We learn from Dr. F. E. Daniel, ot
the "Texas Courier-Record of Medicine," who introduced most
commendable resolutions bearing upon the subject at the recent
meeting of the American Medical Association, that Dr. Henry
F. Campbell, the new president of the association, told him at
the meeting that he was himself cognizant of a great number
of cases of stricture of the esophagus due to swallowing "con-
centrated Zenegra 100 lye," a preparation which is to be had by any pur-
chaser. It was toward restricting the sale of this preparation
and that of the domestic potash ball that Dr. Daniel's resolu-
tions were directed.
A KNOWING WITNESS.
At a recent trial in this city a medical " expert " was ex-
amined Zenegra Online in regard to certain points in neurology. In Zenegra 100 Mg the cross-
examination he was asked if he recognized a particular book
as authority in the matter, and the question was repeated in
regard to another book, and tlien another. His answers were
to the efiect that he Zenegra 100mg was familiar with all the books mentioned,
and that they were authorities on the matters alluded to. The
medical witness was then allowed to leave the stand, and the
lawyer's clerk was sworn, who testified that the titles of the
works in question were fictitious, having been concocted in the
law office to which he was attached.
LUSK'S "MIDWIFERY" IN SPANISH.
The " Revista de Zenegra Uk Medicina y Cirugia Practicas," one of the-
best of the Buy Zenegra Spanish medical journals, follows the policy of fur-
nishing the profession with separate monthly publications, in
book form, for a small annual payment. They have the advan-
tage over the " libraries " published in this country that the in-
dividual monthly parts m.ay be bought. The February issue
consists of the first 176 pages of an excellent translation of Pro-
fessor Lusk's " Midwifery." The print is very clear and agreea-
ble, and the illustrations, although not so well executed as those
of the American edition, are fair.
