EDITORIAL. There are many ways in which Homoeopathy could be provided in insurance contracts over and above the manner in which it is done at the present time in the plans actually in operation. Our insurance in crystallizing and promoting this new expression of homoeopathic practice.
SOME THOUGHTS ON A SCIENTIFIC MATERIA MEDICA. Right here we are stymied, since the action of the organism itself is so imperfectly known. A perusal of books trying to explain the mechanism of pain alone, while showing advances, are pitifully lacking in many respects, making us aware of the brick walls we are up against. As to other symptoms we are wandering about in a such deeper forest.

He started a tour of the best universities of the United States and was favorably received in seventeen.
HOW DID WE GET OUR HOMOEOPATHIC MATERIA MEDICA. Hahnemann shared the fate of other inconvenient innovators. His reformatory ideas were not accepted, even though he tried in exceptionally clear ways in his fundamental work (Experiments about a new Principle, etc.), and many times later to urge the necessity of his research method.
