"it has been decided that generic femara the matter referred to comes
within the classification of legitimate medical advertising !*'
After months of litigation, in which a prominent dental
college of this city figured against the Medico- Chirurgical
College, the latter institution has been granted by the
courts an amendment to its charter permitting it to grant
degrees in dental surgery and in pharmacy, in addition
to the work of its medical school. The femara tablets plans for the es-
tablishment of the two new schools have already been
announced in .these columns.
A wholesale spirit of excessive caution seems buy femara to have
taken possession of our city legislators in prompting them
to prepare an ordinance providing for the appointment of
fifty special guards to protect the several city water res-
ervoirs against any possible attempts on the part of
Spanish agents to poison the water-supply of the city.
Unlike New York City, which receives its entire water-
supply from a single source through an enormous aque-
duct which might be polluted at any point along its course
with immense damage to the entire cheap femara city, Philadelphia re-
ceives its water from several stations, each serving a
separate district; so that any attempt at pollution could
be at once femara online traced with ease, and the order femara section of the city
supplied from the polluted storage basin cut off until
danger is past.
The total number of deaths occurring in this city for
the week ending May 7th numbered 445, a decrease of
25 from last week, and an increase of 27 over the corres-
ponding period of last year. There were 207 new cases
of contagious diseases reported, as follows: diphtheria,
86 cases, with 22 deaths; scarlet fever, 61 cases, with 7
deaths ; and enteric fever, 60 cases, with 9 deaths.

A GERMAN MEDICAL CONGRESS AND ITS SERIOUS-
NESS — THE DISPOSAL OF "BORES"— SOME WATERING-
PLACES AND THEIR WATERS — AN OLD FOUNDATION
AND MODERN SCIENTIFIC WORK AT FRANKFORT.
Wiesbaden, April 30, 1898.
A German medical congress is a very business like af-
fair. At least here at Wiesbaden there are very few dis-
tractions from the work of the congress itself. One of
the evenings is given up to a dinner of course, but beyond
that there are no formal public entertainments. There is
a caf6 in which a number of the doctors meet during the
midday intermission to take what in Rhineland they have
specially named "Friihschoppen. " (A social morning
glass is the nearest translation of it I can find.) The
term is a favorite one with the students' guilds ; the cus-
tom also a favorite. In the evenings there is a special
rendezvous for a social glass, but to neither of these places order femara online
do more than a very small minority of the doctors go.
Sessions begin rather promptly at 9. 15 a.m., and last
till nearly 1 p.m., though 12 o'clock is announced for the
end of the session. They begin again at 3 p.m., sharp,

and continue until about 6 p. m. The morning session,
particularly when discussions are announced, is very well
attended. As in medical societies generally over here, a
great deal of interest is taken. German medical men are,
I think, less considerate of the feelings of the reader of a
paper than we are. When, for instance, the perennial
bore, the special bite noir of medical societies, the man
who has nothing to say and takes twenty femara cost minutes in
which to proclaim the fact, bobs up, he is apt to feel buy femara online in
the hum of conversation that very soon begins that he
might as well be talking to the stars, or that his voice
might be the music of the spheres, so utterly oblivious
seems his audience of it.
On the other hand when really good things are said, be
it only a good buy cheap femara bit of comparative literary abstraction, that
makes clear the femara price present position of a subject, there follows
a series of most encouraging bravos. The other bore, the
man who thinks he has discovered a new symptom or a
new therapeutic method in some long since exploited ex-
pedient, is very apt to be laughed out of countenance at
once. During one of the sessions a young man attempted
to demonstrate a new symptom of early pancreatic dia-
betes, in a tenderness about the tail of the pancreas, to be
felt in the eighth intercostal space in the anterior axillary
line on the left; "et risu soloebantur tabule; sic nos ser-
The congress is over now and the members have gone,
that is all except a few, who remain to take the waters for
awhile. They are, as a rule, the older ones whose faith
has never been rudely disturbed by femara mg too close observation
of the therapeutic effect of a little hot salt water, or whose
credulity has returned with advancing years, the later
stages of evolution corresponding to the earlier stages of
evolution, a harking back to the time when tales were
true and facts unquestioned.
For the wonderful thing about all this region around
here and in the Rhineland generally, is that a purchase femara little com-
mon salt water, or carbonated water, purchase femara online comes bubbling up
out of the bowels of the earth, and straightway it is in-
vested with marvelous powers, and people afflicted with
all the ills that flesh is heir to, and a few others besides,
come flocking to it from all over, and, stranger than all, go
