Cases 6 and 7.-J. S., coxswain, aged 28 years, presented reducible oblique inguinal hernia on both sides. The right was said to have resulted from exertion on a boat davit, eighteen months before operation, and the left appeared one month before. Both have been continuously retained with trusses. His general condition was excellent, and double operation was performed on July 27, 1899. The patient reacted well from the ether. No sac was demonstrated on either side. The postoperative condition

The herniotomies that were recorded in 1898 were performed admirably, by Assistant-Surgeon James R. Whiting, U. S. N., a satisfactory conclusion resulting in each case; all the men having been returned to duty, and no relapse has as yet been reported in any case. The herniotomies of this year were all performed by Passed Assistant-Surgeon Charles F. Stokes, U. S. N. -my executive surgeon-and I can not too earnestly commend his care and skill, and do honor to his admirable technic and successful result in every case.
