EDITORIAL. Several weeks ago, while awaiting telephone connections in the doctor’s room of one of Toronto’s largest hospitals, I listened in upon a discussion by four grey-haired physicians. The subject was “the miracle drugs.” Each physician aired his views concerning his experience with one or other of these drugs. They discussed the pros and cons, and there were many cons.

COMMUNICATION. The Board has therefore asked the Parliament to pass a bill which will practically stop all sale and manufacture of homoeopathic drugs in this country.
