from the Christmas tree by Colonel Hodson followed. About two hours were then devoted to round games, gramaphone selections and small dances for the little ones. Miss French kindly acted as accompanist at the piano. All present, after enjoying a thoroughly pleasant evening, returned home about 8 p.m."

NOTES FROM THE DEYONPORT DISTRICT.-Captain R. J. Blackbam, R.A.M.C., writes (January 15, 1907): .. Surgeon-General Pratt, C.B., Principal Medical Officer, Southern Command, inspected the Military Hospital at Devonport on the 9th and the Military Families' Hospital on the 10th inst.

" Lieutenant-Oolonel R. Oaldwell read a paper on ' Some Points in Oonnection with Sewage Disposal' before the Plymouth Medical Society on December 19. Oolonel Oaldwell traced the development of sewage disposal from tbe simple method of the Mosaic Law to the elaborate systems of modern sewage works. He divided the prin­cipal methods now employed under the headings Ohemical, Biological and Natural. He pointed out that chemical methods were the oldest of modern means of sewage disposal, and detailed the various precipitants employed. Referring to the Dalmarnock Works at Glasgow, the lecturer said' the adoption (of this method) by one of the most important .and most enlightened communities in the United Kingdom is proof that its value must be considered when contrasted with methods employed elsewhere.' In dealing with the question of the disposal of sludge Oolonel Oaldwell impressed his audience by pointing out that Dr. Grossman, a well-known chemist, bas recently proposed to the Society of Industrial Chemistry a scheme for manufacturing fruit essences for flavouring purposes out of the Manchester sewage sludge I (British Medical Journal, May 13, 1905.) He drew the conclusion that if sludge possessed actual manurial value such a proposal would hardly have been made, as more ready means of profit would have been at hand. Passing to biol0gical treatment the lecturer described the various methods in use, and pointed out that Hewlitt and others have shown tbat the bright, sparkling effluent sometimes obtained is far from being bacteriologically pure, as the Bacillus typhosus and other pathogenic organisms may escape destruction in this method of sewage treatment. In the last portion of his paper Oolonel Oaldwell showed himself an ardent disciple of the 'late Dr. Vivian Poore, and demonstrated tbe great loss to the nation by some modern means of sewage dis­posal. He described the methods of conservancy by application of dejecta to the soil in shallow trenches which is in use in India, and stated that in his experiments he had never been able to' detect coliform bodies later than the fifth day after burial. He disputed tbe contention that earth-burial of ordure has been a cause of the spread of enteric fever, and pointed out that at St. Helena, where the application of excreta to the soil has been in practice from time immemorial, typhoid fever was practically unknown on the island, except at Jamestown, until the advent of the Boer prisoners. He concluded that the failure of some sewage farms at home has been due to the difficulty in acquiring land for sewage purification, and expressed a hope that more extended facilities than those which at present exist for the acquisition of land for this purpose, may, at some future time, form part of our legislature. Colonel Oald­well's paper was listened to with great interest, and was followed by a discussion .

.. Dr. O. H. Fowler has vacated the appointment of medical officer in charge of troops and recruiting at Cirencester, which he has held since 1885. He has been succeeded by Dr. Howard Marshall.

,. Christmas day was suitably celehrated at the Military Ho~pital, Devonport. The patients' dining hall and tables were charmingly and tastefully decorated by the matron and nursing staff, and an excellent dinner was served up by Sergeant Langman, the master·cook. After the patients' dinner the men of No. 7 Oompany sat down to their own Ohristmas feast. The Corps dining ball was beautifully decorated, and some clever designs of a Oorps character, by Lance-Oorporal Olements, were especially admired. Lieutenant-Oolonel Jones and the officers doing duty with the company were present, and the usual toasts were proposed. The dinner was followed by an excellent smoking. concert, at which Sergeant-Major Orowley presided. The members of the N.O.O.'s mess dined together after the company dinner, and a thoroughly happy Ohristmas day was spent by all ranks.

"The usual Ohristmas tree and entertainment for the married families were given on December 28. Pretty and suitable presents were taken from the tree and handed to each child by Mrs. Jones, and a capital conjuring entertainment was given afterwards.

"During Ohristmas week another good concert and an exhibition of conjuring

were organised for the amusement of the patients by the officer in charge Military Hospital."

NOTES FROM MANCHESTER.-The Adjutant, Manchester Companies, R.A.l\LC. (Vclunteers), writes: "The Rt. Hon. R. B. Haldane, R.O., LL.D., M.P., Secretary of State for War, inspected the Manchester Oompanies, Royal Army Medical Oorps (Volunteers), on Tuesday, January 15. About 500 members of the Oorps were on parade under tbe command of Oolonel W. Ooates, O.B., V.D., a remarkably fine muster, considering that the parade was ordered for 4 p.m., and that nearly all the members had to leave their work in order to attend. After inspecting the lines, Mr. Haldane made a short speech to the Oorps. He said: 'It is with very great pleasure that I have come here to look upon an organisation so admirable as that which has grown up under OolonelOoates in this Oorps. You do a great and necessary work. There are some who may take the superficial view that the Army, be .it the volunteer Army or the regular Army, means the fighting line. That is 'a great mistake. The fighting line is nothing without that which it cannot fight independently of, without those services which are organised to make it an efficient fighting machine. You of the Royal Army Medical Oorps, with all you can do not only to prevent the wastage of war by precautions taken against disease, but with the aid you render on the field, are just as much a part of the fighting organisation as are the battalions in the first line. Your work takes you into the very thick of the danger zone, and some of the most gallant deeds are performed by those who risk their Jives in order to succour their wounded comrades. Such corps as yours have not been long in existence. Our ancestors were content to rely on something less perfect. Modern science and our· modern business methods, which are being applied to every civilised army, are bringing more and more into prominence the men of such corps as your own. Whether we turn to the great war that was waged successfully by Japan, or to the great war waged between France and Germany in 1870, or to the war which was waged by our own people in South Africa, what is the lesson for the Royal Army Medical Oorps? It is that the service corps which rendered aid such as yours are an essential and a vital part of the modern machine. I congratulate you on the public spirit which has caused you, officers and men, to put so much into your Oorps, to devote yourselves so whole·heartedly and with such public spirit to rendering service to the nation. Believe me that on this scientific side of the Army there is as much to be done for your Ring and your country as there is by those who actually handle the weapons of precision of war. It is to me a great pleasure to have been able to be with you to.day, and I am grateful to Colonel Coates for having given me the opportunity of seeing you.'

. "Mr. Haldane, after inspecting the headquarters, was entertained to tea in the officers' mess. The following officers of the Oorps were present: Oolonel W. Ooates, O.B., V.D.; Majors Fairclough and Mann; Captains Pritchard, Woolley, Wright, Matthews, Smithard, Ashton and Dickinson; Lieutenants Wattleworth, Roberts, A. F. Thompson, H. W. Pritchard, S. Pritchard, FitzGerald, Stoddard and Royse."

NOTES FROM WOOLWICH.-Lieutenant·Oolonel J. S. Davidson, R.A.M.C., writes (January 18, 1907): "Ohristmas has come and gone, and I think we have kept up the traditions of the Royal Herbert Hospital in our observance of the festive season. On Christmas day the chief feature was the dinner to the patients. The dining-room was particularly full, and evidently every patient was anxious to do his duty in dispos. ing of his share of the excellent dinner provided. The room was well decorated with the usual coloured festoons, and mottoes appropriate to the season covered the walls. Those not so fortunate as to be able to come to the dining hall were not, however, neglected, but had their Christmas dinner in their wards. The Administrative Medical Officer and the officers, after visiting tbe patients at dinner, repaired later to the dining­room, No. 12 Company. Here,' after exchanging the usual kindly greetings of the season, the men were left to the enjoyment of an excellent dinner. The dining.room and the men's barrack rooms were alike beautifully decorated. No entertainment took place on Boxing day, but on the 27th the members of the Q.A.LM.N.S. entertained the patients at tea, and later there was an enjoyable smoking concert given by Lieutenant· Colonel and Mrs. Babtie, who had engaged Clifford Essex and his 'Pierrots' for the occasion. A crowded hall and numerous encores showed how highly the performance was appreciated.

"A Christmas tea was provided for the women and children of No. 12 Oompanyon the 28th. The tea was followed by a Christmas tree, which, lighted with tiny electric lamps, seemed loaded with toys for the little ones. Father Christmas then distributed appropriate presents to each woman and child connected with the Royal Herbert Hospital." .

NOTES FROM YORK.-(December 28, 1906):-"Christmas Festivit~es at the Military Hospital, York.-The Military Hospital

has been the scene of a round of annual festivities during the past three days, that has given pleasure to all who participated therein. It commenced on Christmas day, in a ward tastefully decorated by willing helpers, when at 12 noon the patients, waited upon by the nursing sisters and staff, sat down to an excellent dinner, improved con­siderably by the addition of fruit, sweets, and afterwards, tobacco, &c., kindly provided from a fund subscribed to by each corps whose sick were in the hospital. Brigadier­General Mends and other officers paid a visit to the hospital, leaving behind theh good wishes for the comrades who were prevented from taking part in the pleasures going on in barracks. At 1 o'clock the orderlies had their dinner in the barrack-room, which had also been excellently decorated. The Commanding Officer (Lieutenant­Colonel Emerson) and officers of the headguarter detachment of No. 8 Company, Royal Army Medical Corps, inspected the room and drank the health of all with seasonable good wishes, Sergeant-Major Kay responding. A smoking concert was given in the evening and honoured by the presence of Colonel Emerson and the officers of the Corps. The thanks of all were accorded the Colonel for his capital rendering of a couple of songs. Captain Ronayne and Lieutenant Clapshaw also entertained the company, amongst others who assisted in making a pleasant evening being Sergeant Endacott, Corporal Harris, Privates Coles, Driver, Ehrenberg, Kershaw, Roe and Noble. There were also the usual toasts, and a most enjoyable day was brought to a close by the singing of' Auld Lang Syne' and 'God save the King.' Boxing Day was set aside as 'Patients' Day,' and a special tea provided for them with a concept in the evening. Several of the patients contributed to the harmony, and many other willing friends, amongst whom the following deserve special mention, for they were undoubtedly very much appreciated: Duet.' Don't cry, little girl, don't cry,' by Miss Sharpe and Mr. R Jackson. Songs: Miss Talbot, ~,Iaster R Talbot, Sergeant Endacott and Private Ehrenberg. This evening closed in the usual military fashion, when cheers were given for the matron and sisters and all who had taken part in helping their sick comrades to forget for the moment their pain and disappointment at not being out for the holidays. Last evening closed the festivities, when the married families of the company were entertained by Colonel O'Connell, officers, ladies and nursing sisters. Tea was served to about eighty children and their parents, and it was pleasantly observed that some of the children who were deprived of the opportunity of being present, owing to sickness, were not forgotten, an excellent tea being sent to their homes. After tea the great Christmas tree was stripped of its toys and decorations, and these were distributed by Mrs. O'Connell, Mrs. Emerson, Mrs. Penton, Mrs. Faichnie, Mrs. Draper, Mrs. Talbot, Mrs. Clapshaw, Miss Russell and nnrsing sisters, to 'the eagerly awaiting groups of little folk. Mothers were remembered. None were forgotten. Games, songs, &c., to amuse both young and old were indulged in until about 8 o'clock, when the little ones, thoroughly tired, were taken home, through the snow, to dream of another merry party next year."

NOTES FROM BLOEMFONTEIN.-Major S. F. Clark, RA.M.C., writes (December 25, 1906): "Our annual sports came off successfully on the 1st inst., but it would have been desirable if we had had larger fields, closer finishes, and less wind. At the close the prizes were presented by Mrs. Maunsell, wife of our Administrative Medical Officer, who was supported by all the other ladies of the Corps at the station. Sergeant-Major How deserves credit for the indefatigable way in which he worked before, during, and after the meeting. The brothers Hazel, of our last draft, who seem to have had a benefit at Dublin earlier in the year, finished the day witb heavy pockets.

Obstacle Race: Private Hutchinson, Private Hum­phries, Private Moore. Oonsolation Race: Private Peatford, Private Marsh. There were also races for children and for the band (2odNorfolk Regiment).

"The ship that carries our cricket team has got on to the rocks very badly, -and fears are entertained that she may become a total wreck. The accident was cansed­by her carrying too many passengers and too small a crew. Corporal Strond -has made splendid efforts to improve matters, but has not received sufficient support.

" This is the wettest and coldest Christmas day that the Colony has had within living memory, and the feelings of one officer, whose cook put salt into the pudding in mistake for sugar, may be imagined."

NOTES FROM JAMAICA.--The following is extracted from the Jamaica Daily Telegraph, dated December 29, 1906: "The 29th Company of the Royal Army Medical Corps stationed at Up-Park Camp celebrated the festive season in a right hearty manner. The apartment set apart for the several functions was' tastefully decorated, for which grcat credit is due to Private Brooks and his committee. There were numerous mottoes, and the evergreens and snowflakes reminded one very much of dear Old England.

" At 2 p.m. on Christmas day the company sat down to dinner. "Lieutenant-Colonel Mosse, Officer Commanding the Royal Army Medical Corps,

Jamaica; Major F. M. Mangin, Officer Oommanding the Oompany; Lieutenants H. O. Sidgwick, G. R. Paiuton and P. Rowe, were present. Lieutenant·Oolonel Mosse, in a few well-chosen words, said it was a pleasure to the other officers and himself to' be with their men on such an occasion. It was also a pleasure to Major Mangin and himself to have such a company under their command. He wished them the season's greetings, and success in the Service. Oorporal J. H. Thorn responded on behalf of the company. Then the company rose and drank to the health of their officers, hearty cheers being given for Lieutenant-Oolonel Mosse and the others. The health of Sergeant-Major Hill was proposed and drunk with enthusiasm. Sergeant-Major Hill is deservedly popular with his men. He is deeply interested in them; and their regard for him was fully shown when the toast was proposed. The officers shortly after departed, and the company did full justice to the good things provided. Oorporal Thorn, Privates Thoroughgood and Churchill were responsible for the catering, and they did well.

"At night there was a smoking concert. The chair was ably filled by Sergeant­Major Hill. The gathering was a happy one; and the programme was rendered in a manner which left nothing to be desired. The majority of those who contributed to the programme are members of the Royal Army Medical Oorps, and encore after encore was given. The programme was as follows :.-

"There were several visitors. The concert was brought to a close at 11.30 p.m., but not before the toasts 'of • The Visitors,' and' Sergeant Sharpe, R.A.ll'LC.,' who supplied the music the entire evening, were proposed. For the visitors Company­Sergeant-Major Bayford responded in an able manner. It was with feelings of regret that the happy company separated."

NOTES FROM MALTA.-Major C. E. Pollock, R.A.M.C., writes (January 10,1907) : "Ohristmas Oelebrations.-In each of our five military hospitals Christmas was

duly celebrated by a seasonable dinner to the patients, the medical officers in each case being present to wish them 'good cheer.' Our Principal Medical Officer, Colonel J. G. MacNeece, came down to the Valletta Hospital dinner, and afterwards visited the headquarter detachment dinner, where he wished all the members of the Royal Army Medical Corps a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. When the patients' wants had been liberally attended to, the various detachments sat down to their own Christmas feasts, followed later on by a supper and a social evening.

"On Boxing day a first. rate entertainment was provided at Valletta Hospital for all the Royal Army Medical Corps married men and their wives and children. This began with a liberal tea, at the end of which, to the great delight of the children, Father Christmas appeared, laden with presents for the children, which they after­wards fished for from a 'lucky tub! The benevolent old Santa Claus was very well personated by Lieutenant C. Allen, R.A.M.C. The evening was concluded with round games. Very great credit is due to the ladies of the Corps, who kindly undertook the arrangeinents. .

" In the Families' Hospital Miss Bishopp, who is in charge, gave a tea, followed by a well decorated Christmas tree, to which every child was invited who had been an inmate during the last year.

" On January 3 the Royal Army Medical Corps minstrel troupe gave an afternoon entertainment at Valletta Hospital. The troupe has only recently been organised, in spite of which it gave an excellent performance, and promises to be one of the features of the island.

"I regret being unable to speak personally of the Imtarfa and Forrest Hospital concerts, but judging by report these were most enjoyable. The .Valletta concert will not be held till to-morrow, but if the programme is to be trusted it will not be inferior to the others.

" At the Royal Army Medical Corps officers' monthly meeting Major Pollock showed an interesting case of lichen, with patches on the mucous membranes of the mouth; the differential diagnosis from syphilis was briefly pointed out. Lieutenant Winck· worth read notes of a case of ulcerative endocarditis, possibly of gonorrbceal origin. Major Lawson read notes of an unusual case of ruptured bladder, whicb, occurring on Christmas day, provided occupation for several of us during that afternoon. As the man has made an excellent recovery, however, none of us regret our days' work.

" Major Master and Captain Anderson have gone on leave. "As our sporting contributor has not yet produced his' copy,' the results of tbe

football and hockey matches will accordingly appear in our next letter."

The following notes are extracted from the Daily Malta Ohronicle, dated January 4, 1907:-

eve with the same success which always attends their gatherings. The guests, which included the naval sick berth staff at Bighi and representatives of all corps in the garrison, numbered about 200. Among about twenty officers present were noticed Lieu­tenant-Oolonel Rhodes, the Oommanding Officer, Lieutenant-Oolonel Gerrard, Majors Gray, Williams and Pollock, Oaptain Bransbury and several others officers of the Corps, the other corps represented by officers being the Royal Garrison Artillery, Army Service Oorps, Accounts' Department, -and Lientenant Dimick, the Inspector of Army Schools. The programme included some of the best talent in the Island, as will be seen by the programme. The Royal Army Medical Oorps Minstrel Troupe made its debut in public and delighted everyone present. The songs were good, also the choruses, and the jokes original. Quartermaster-Sergeant Lowe acted as interlocutor and displayed marked ability in the line. The introduction of boys' voices in the sit-round had a pleasing effect. The corner-men kept the audience 'in roars.' It would be invidious to comment on individual members of the troupe, they all did so well. The toasts during the evening were' The Officers, Royal Army Medical Corps,' 'The Guests,' and' Absent Friends.' In proposing the toast of 'The Officers,' the Ohairman alluded to the pleasure it gave the subordinate ranks to see so many officers present, to the unavoidable and regrettable absence of the Principal Medical Officer through indisposition, to the support they received from the officers financially and otherwise in sport, and, lastly, to the pleasure it gave them to have their officers' names in the evening's programme. Oolonel Rhodes responded with a speech, in which he mentioned the excellent feeling existent between the officers and men, &c. In dealing with the question of sport, mention was made of the success of the Oottonera detachment cricket team during the 1906 season, which had won seventeen out of twenty-one matches. This. success was largely due to the excellent batting of Private Fish and the bowling of Private Pegram, whom he presented with a bat and a suitably engraved shield and a case of razors also with an engraved plate, respectively. The toast 'Our Guests' was heartily given, and in this the Ohairman remarked how pleasing it was to the Royal Army Medical Oorps to see that nearly all their invited friends had 'turned up.' He also mentioned the appreciation of the Oorps for the services of the guests in the programme, which had so assisted in the convivial feeling of everyone there. This was suitably responded to by Lieutenant Dimick, Inspector of Army Schools. In calling to mind 'Absent Friends,' several extracts were read of letters to the detachment from friends who had previously attended these annual gatherings, in which many good wishes were included, particularly those of Lieutenant-Oolonel Sloggett, a late Oommanding Officer of the detachment; Mr. Hannaford, late Ohief Wardmaster of the Naval Hospital Bighi, and the members of the sergeants' mess of the Hampshire Regiment, now at Bermuda. I ought to mention that just before the conclusion of the programme one of the guests proposed the toast of the Royal Army Medical Oorps in a very complimentary speech, and the visitors certainly showed how much they appreciated the Corps by the very hearty way in which they replied. The company at midnight joined hands round the room in the 'Auld Lang Syne' fashion, and if not the best, one of the most successful concerts of the season closed with the singing of the National Anthem in a way which only sailors and soldiers know how to sing it. The chair was occupied for the fourth time by Sergeant-Major Green and, as at last year's concert, he was ably assisted by Staff-Sergeant Hunt. Private McOaig acted as accompanist during the evening in his most capable and untiring manner. Sergeant Davies was, I understand, with his staff of cooks, responsible for the liberal supply of refreshments. Oorporals Hill and Brown I found were in charge of decorations of the room, which were very tasteful. I asked the Ohairman who were the other members of the Oommittee, and he replied 'The Oommittee is the Detachment.' I could only say 'Well, the Detachment is to be. highly congratulated.'''

NOTES FROM SIERRA LEONE. - Captain D. S. Skelton, R.A.M.C., writes (December 21, 1906):-

"The whole station, no less than the Corps, sustained a great shock at the news of the sudden death of Lieutenant·Colonel O. R. Bartlett, R.A.M.C. The deceased officer had not been in the best of health for some time past, but he was hoping that­his approaching inspection tour in the Protectorate would set him all right again, He started off in a native boat early on the morning of December 5 en route to Port' Lokkoh. At about 4 p.m., after a very long, hot day, he suddenly fell back dead. Very fortunately a white sapper corporal was travelling with the Colonel, who took;: charge of the panic.stricken natives. The canoe put back to Tasso, but had no soons:t touched land than the crew bolted en masse. The postmaster and the local policeman managed to get some sort of crew together, and the Royal Engineer Corporal came on to Freetown with the news. Steps were at once taken to obtain a launch to go up the river and fetch the body, but the postmaster at Tasso had in the meantime got a new crew together, and despatched the body down in charge of a policeman. Death was due to syncope, iuduced by prolonged exposure to the sun in an open canoe, in a man who had a fatty heart.

" The late Senior Medical Officer was one of the most popular officers in the station. His uufailing kindliness and tact, his old· world courtliness, his invariable politeness, had endeared him to everyone who came in contact with him. His courtly habits and speech had become almost a bye. word on the Coast, where he was one of the best· known men. This was his second tOl~r as Senior Medical Officer in Sierra Leone, and as he had alreaily served in Ashanti he looked upon himself as quite an 'old Coaster.' He considered that in a way be belonged to Africa, ani Africa has claimed her own. The funeral took place on December 6 at the Kissi cemetery, with full military honours. There was a large attendance of the civil community, including His Excellencv the Governor.

"Capt"ain H. J. McGrigor arrived on November 20 in relief of Captain W. H. S. Nickersou, who proceeded home the same week, tour.expired. Captain F. Hervey arrived in the station on December 12; and took over the duties of Sanitary Specialist from Captain A. H. Morris. The latter had completed nearly seventeen months' service on the Coast, as he was appointed to the specialist billet after his ordinary tour had begun. The distribution of Royal Army Medical Corps officers is as follows at the moment of writing ;-Tower Hill, Major G. T. Rawnsley, S.M.O., with Captains McGrigor and Skelton doing duty under him. A2£reol, Captain R. F. M. Fawcett in charge. Wilberforce, Captain J. McW. D. McCarthy in charge. In the Bush.-Port Lokkoh, Captain R. McK. W. Skinner. Mabanta, Captain J. Cowan.

" The local' rag' is much perturbed at the continuance of the rains into December, and predicts the end of the world in consequence. So hard up are we for news that this is considered a subject worthy of discussion; and, indeed, it is a matter for <lonsolation to think that Freetown is the hub of the universe, and that Nature thus honours us by her portents of an impending dissolution."

REGISTER FOR INDIAN SERVANTS. FEW officers on going to India have not experienced the difficulty of getting good

servants. The discomforts on arrival and of a long journey up country, unprovided with a bearer, or, what is worse, provided with a hastily selected man, taken haphazard from the crowd of indifferent or bad characters who congregate in Bombay, have fallen to the lot of most of us, whilst the period of trial and vexation until a proper staff of servants is secured is familiar to us all.

In our Corps, with regular annual reliefs, it should not be difficult to arrange for an interchange. Officers leaving India would then be able to provide places for the good and tried retainers they are relinquishing, and new arrivals would, by taking on these men, be spared many of the worries and troubles which now befall them. Further, good servants would not be lost to the Corps, and the prospects of continuous employ­ment could not fail to have attraction for the better class of men.

With these ends in view, officers due home from India are requested to communicate to the Journal particulars of servants whom they can, recommend, so that officers going out in relief may have an opportunity of securing these men. The particulars required are :.,-

(1) Class of servant. (2) Whether for bachelor or married officer. (3) District or station to which he belongs. (4) Any special recommendations. NOTE.-The date the officer leaves India should also be stated, and when and where

the servant will be available.

SOCIETY OF FRENCH MILITARY MEDICINE. A society of French military medicine, called the "Societe de Medicine Militaire

Fran<;aise," has just been formed under War Office sanction of September 5 last. Its headquarters are at the Military Hospital of the Val·de-Grace in Paris. The President of the Society, Surgeon-General De Lorme, Director of the Army Medical School which is attached to the Val-de-Grace, has sent the following letter to the Director-General for the information of officers of the Army Medical Service and Royal Army Medical Corps, all of whom may, as will be seen, become corresponding members of the Society on their own application.

l "HONOURED CONFRERE,-The necessity of bringing to completion, of appreciating, and of controlling the changes which the different branches of the medical sciences are daily experiencing, has imposed an obligation on each of the specialised sections of these sciences to be represented by learned societies, where light can be tJ.ll'own on each new or resuscitated question by free and liberal discussion, such as will carry weight and authority.

" Certain specialised branches of medicine, with a circumscribed horizon, such as ophthalmology, diseases of the genito-urinary system, physiology, syphilography, hygiene and state medicine, &c., &c., have active learned societies; and there is reason to wonder why they are thus better equipped than military medicine, which covers a wide and varied area from the realms of medicine to those of surgery, including the special pathology of the soldier's life, the pathology of military surgery, the diseases of tropical climates, hygiene and epidemiology of armies, the injuries caused by fire­arms, which are constantly changing with the changes in armaments, military medical jurisprudence, and army medical organisation both in time of peace and in the field .

.. The usefulness of a society whose aim would be the study of such extensive subjects was apparent, and its formation became obligatory.

"By a decision dated September 5, 1906, the Minister for War has authorised tbe formation of such a scientific association under the name of 'Societe de Medicine Militaire Fran<;aise.'

"According to the statutes decreed by the Minister for War in co-operation with the Ministers for Naval Affairs and for the Oolonies, the Society will be composed of (1) regular members, (2) associates, and (3) corresponding members.

"(1) All medical officers on the active list of the Army, Navy, or Oolonial Forces, and Medicins-Inspecteurs (Surgeons-General) of the reserve are regular members of the Society.

"(2) Retired medical officers of these services have the right to become associates on their own application. Medical practitioners, who were formerly army medical officers, officers of the reserve and of the territorial army, and civil practitioners, may be appointed associates by a general meeting of the regular members on their own application.

"(3) Medical officers of foreign armies on the active list have the right to become corresponding members, if they apply. Retired military medical officers and civil practitioners of foreign countries, may be nominated corresponding members on their own application.

(6) The Accounts of Funds for the seven months ending December 31, 1906, having been audited by Messrs. Evans, Pearson and Co., were considered and passed. The Accounts are appended to these Minutes.

(7) The Accounts of the Aldershot Sub· Committee for the quarter ending December SI, 1906, were approved as follows:

(a) Widows' and Orphans' Fund.-The sum of £80 was voted for tbe current quarter's expenses. Statements of the accounts and of the cases receiving relief are appended to the Minutes.

(b) General Relief Fund.-Tbe sum of £35, less tbe advance of £10 already given, was voted. Statements of tbe acconnts and of the cases receiving relief are appended to these Minutes.

(c) Band Fund.-Tbe sum of £80 was voted for this quarters' eJrpenses. The accounts of the Band Fund for the last quarter are appended to these Minutes.

(8) It was noted that Elsie E. Laws had been admitted to the Royal.soldiers Daughters' Home.

(9) A case was referred to this Committee from the Aldershot Sub-Committee regarding the payment of a sum of £2 128. for the hospital stoppages of Civilian Davies, late a Corporal in the Royal Army Medical Corps, who has recently been under treatment in the Royal Herbert Hospital; it was decided that it should be paid out of the General Relief Fund, as the man was not in a position to pay it himself.

(10) The Chairman read a correspondence which emanated from the President of the Council of the Union Jack Club, regarding a subscription from all ships, regiments, and corps, for the upkeep of the Club. It appeared that the subscription from the Royal Army Medical Corps works out at about £28 per annum; after some discussion it was unanimously decided that tbe simplest way would be to pay this subscript inn out of tbe General Relief Fund, but the Committee were of opinion that before definitely deciding on this action, the consent of the Committees of the Canteens subscribing to the General Relief Fund should be obtained. The Secretary was there­fore directed to request the Principal Medical Officers of Districts to kindly ascertain if there would be any objection on the part of any of the subscribing Canteens in their areas to this arrangement.

(11) It was noted that the fOllowing officers were willing to act as Local Honorary Secretaries to the Fund: Home District, Captain Sewell; Woolwich Dis­trict, Captain J. F. Forrest; Dover District, Captain L. Humphry ; Colchester District, Major F. J. W. Porter, D.S.O. ; Thames District, Major R. F. E. Austin: Ceylon Dis­trict, Captain Hayes.

(12) The Memorial Sub-Committee were authorised to expend a sum not exceeding £100 on a picture of Mr. Guthrie.

(13) Lieutenant-Colonel Sir James Clarke proposed, and Colonel Sloggett seconded, a vote of thanks to Lieutenant Skinner, M.V.O., for the most excellent way in which he had performed the duties of Honorary Secretary to the Fund, and requested that this resolution should be recorded at the Annual Meeting. It was carried unanimously.
