It is scarcely a decade since the rejuvenating of Military Surgery and the evolution Of its twin sister, Railway Surgery. Each year brings them into a higher state Of development and with each year's experience it has been demonstrated that The higher the order Of railway surgery, the greater the protection to the employe, the passenger and the company.

This he attributes to the increasing experience Of the Fellows of the Academy and the special pains they have taken in thepreparation and discussion Of papers on practical and important subjects.
