EDITORIAL. The American Medical Association is reported to have endorsed the U.S. Public Health Service in its effort but it is certain officials of the Association, not the mass of practitioners. Many are opposed to it and many object to having drugs forced on their patients not of their own prescribing.
CHRONIC FATIGUE. Facing the growing facts around us, there is no alternative but to recognize the role it plays in universal society. We have ample evidence it acts as a deterrent to curative efforts which are, and should always be, the dominant note of Medicine in improvement of the race.
WHY FAILURES IN HOMOEOPATHIC PRESCRIBING. In malignant growths and too far advances organic diseases, there is a great paucity of prescriptive symptoms as the patients entire attention is focussed on the tumor or an intense pain and all the past and present symptoms with prescriptive characteristics and modalities sink into the background and are often forgotten, and in proportion as this happens, he is to be considered incurable.

For between idem and similimum there is, for those who can reflect, nothing intermediate; or, in other words, between idem and simile only similimum can exist.
PREVENTION AND CURE OF HEART DISEASE BY HOMOEOPATHY. I think that there can be no question but that Aurum, too, is a remedy, but any remedy in the whole Materia Medica may come in.

TIMING IN PRESCRIBING. To philosophers, as well as to athletes, rhythm, which is really timing, is paramount. A beginner in homoeopathic prescribing may take his case magnificently hut may have no sense for chronology, for the sequence of cause and event. Always put dates opposite the illnesses, operations or catastrophes in the patients history.
