Manual of Medical Jurisprudence, Toxicology and Public Health.

By W. G. AitcHISON ROBERTSON, M.D., D.Sc., F.R.C.P.E.,
F.R.S.E., Lecturer on Medical Jurisprudence and Public
Health, School of Medicine, Royal College of Surgeons, Edin-
burgh, etc., etc. With 39 illustrations. London: Simpkin,
Marshall & Co., Limited.

This is a fine little concise manual for medical students on the above subjects. It includes all the student requires for examination purposes. We recommend it heartily to them.

Confessio Medici. By the writer of “The Young People." Price,

$1.25. The Macmillan Company of Canada, Limited, 27 Richmond St. W., Toronto.

The book is a series of essays on Vocation, Hospital Life, An Essay for Students, A Good Example, Practice, The Discipline of Practice, The Spirit of Practice, Wreaths and Crosses of Practice, Retirement, The Very End. We have looked it over time and again, read parts of it here and there, have found a good thing now and then, decide it is idealistic, that it does not lend itself readily to review, so simply state our impression. We have not yet come to any decision as to why it was written, so do not wish to be too rash in criticism, as it may have the meat hidden away somewhere we have not been able to locate. Therefore, to those who are interested, we would say, read, mark, and inwardly digest for yourself.

The Toiler. By WILLIAM J. FISCHER, M.D., Waterloo, Ontario,

author of “Songs by the Wayside.”

In this issue we publish the third of the series of “Master Minds of Medicine-John Hunter," by Dr. Fischer; and on our editorial table lies a copy of his latest production in literature, "The Toiler." It is a volume bubbling with purity and beauty of thought, as chaste as it is delicate. It proves that Dr. Fischer is gradually establishing for himself a place in Canadian literature. It is dedicated to two well-known Canadian medical men, Drs. John Wishart and H. A. McCallum, London, Ont. We here reproduce in full Dr. Fischer's poem :

THE DOCTOR.
He stands, 'twixt life and death, through busy cares,
An angel, in the eyes of toiling Pain;
Strong men look up at him through tearful rain,
Strong women sound their noblest, purest pray’rs
Into his ears; sick children, weak, in pairs,
Rest in his Love's bright bed; Sorrow has lain
Therein, and Pity wept. Now and again
God brings him soul-strength up life's winding stairs.
A worker in the low, degraded street,
He sees the shadow with the shining light,
And touches black souls as the pure priest can;
He sees Pain, should’ring her old cross so sweet,
And, through the dawn, the live-long day and night,
Ile feels the pulse of God in ev'ry man.
