“THE SANITARIAN for June, 1892, contains a life-sketch of its venerable and distinguished editor, Dr. A. N. Bell, and several contributions upon The triumphs of preventive medicine, in the interest of which Dr. Bell has labored so long and so successfully.

No one has been so long, so patient and so persistent in awakening public attention to an interest in this cause.

No one has filled so many positions demanding skill in practical work. No one has been more successful in practical work under great difficulties. The writer of the article is Dr. Stephen Smith, the eminent surgeon and author.”Tennessee State Board of Health Bulletin.

Based at the outset upon medical knowledge and sanitary service, over an extensive field of observation in various climates in different quarters of the world, large experience in dealing with epidemic diseases, and practical sanitation for the maintenance of health under the most trying circumstances: “ The Sanitarian is "

POPULAR SCIENCE MONTHLY.

Prospectus for 1897.

DURING the last few years science has been unusually fruitful in important 图

and striking discoveries. Helium and argon, the electric furnace, and the

X-ray are but a few of the more startling results in the physical sciences. Similarly important if less sensational advances are being made in the fields of medicine and sanitation. Students of society and politics are coming to see the necessity for a scientific study of sociology, if we are to cope successfully with the increasing difficulties of modern civilization. We have always insisted that such a study was the only one which promised any satisfactory solution of social problems, and that many of society's worst evils were due simply to ignorance of elementary scientific principles. It is very gratifying to observe the unmistakable signs of a growing, acceptance of this view that have become manifest during recent years. In our issues for 1897 we shall endeavor, as heretofore, to help on this movement by giving to the general public month by month a summary, in simple words, of what is going on in the various fields of scientific research, and of the applications of the principles thus worked out.

Among the features of special interest will be a series of papers by Prof. William Z. Ripley, on the Racial Geography of Europe, the subject of the last course of Lowell lectures delivered by him. The articles will be freely illustrated. DAVID A. Wells's interesting papers on Taxation will continue, and there will be a series of carefully prepared illustrated articles on science at the universities, which is to include accounts of the leading scientific institutions and societies of the country. Education and child psychology will be given considerable space, and sanitary questions, especially in connection with household economy, will receive attention. Timely single articles may be expected from our usual contributors, among whom may be named
