Abstract

(FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Dr. Rockwell on the General Therapeutic Action of Electricity—Dr. C. L. Dana defends Static Electricity—Dr. H. D. Chapin on the Auriculo-Ventricular (presystolic) Sound, and Some Considerations on Cardiac Disease in Childhood. It will perhaps be remembered that last spring Dr. M. Allen Starr, Clinical Professor of Diseases of the Mind and Nervous System at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, read a paper before the New York Academy of Medicine on " The Therapeutic Value of Electricity," the tendency of which was decidedly to undermine the confidence of the profession in this agent. At the last meeting of the Section on Practice of the Academy an opportunity was afforded to some of those whose views are at variance with those of Dr. Starr to defend it against the aspersions cast upon its good name. On this occasion Dr. A. D. Rockwell, the well-known expert, read a paper
