is also thought that in the country the expense of such a school ought not to exceed £14 a head. If, therefore, this calculation should prove correct 400 children will be supported, trained, and fitted for effective service in the world, and turned out at 16 years of age,
with the small accumulations of past industry to encourage them in their future career, for an auxiliary help of about £800 to £1,000 per annum. The advantages gained will be realised when it is considered that the education and training of the same number of children in the existing schools would cost from £8,000 to £10,000 per annum; and also that the children will have experienced the advantages of eight years' training, instead of three or four, which will, both by age and acquirement, better fit them for responsible and independent life.
The Managers of the proposed school set their facts, their argument, and intentions before the public; and they undertake, if supported, to prosecute the latter with vigour and a single eye to the success of the work, in humble dependance on the Divine blessing. The first expense must be considerable, but the strictest economy will be observed. All voluntary labour will be gratefully accepted where practicable, and should the Managers be intrusted with funds larger than are necessary for founding the first school on the principles announced, the remainder will be placed to the account of a second such school.

THE HALF-YEARLY ABSTRACT OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES.
BEING A DIGEST OF BRITISH AND CONTINENTAL MEDICINE, AND OF THE PROGRESS OF MEDICINE AND THE COLLATERAL SCIENCES.
Post 8vo. cloth, 68. 6d. Vols. I. to XLVIII. “American physicians may be congratulated that they are once more favoured with the reprint of *Ranking's Abstract.' If any doctor is so busy that he can read but a single volume a year, then, assuredly, he should make this his book; for here are collected and condensed the most valuable contributions to periodical medical literature-French, Germ British, and American-for the year; and, on the other hand, no physician-it matters not how wide the range of his reading-can fail to find, in this volume, truths that will enlarge his medical knowledge, and precepts that will help him in some of his daily professional needs."--Cincinnati Journal of Medicine, April, 1867.
“We have only space to say that this volume is rich in valuable articles, among which there are many on materia medica and therapeutics. Gathered from all sources in the new books and medical journals of Europe and America, this work may be viewed as the cream of that class of medical essays, and is a useful occupant of the physician's office-table, to keep him reminded of the progress of medicine." -American Journal of Pharmacy, May, 1867.
