No sooner was the Section on Pathology and Bacteriology of the Association formed than it had placed upon it the responsibility of the management of the Pathologic Exhibit. This was entrusted to a special committee, of which Dr. Frank B. Wynn was made Chairman, and in order to defray certain necessary expenses the sum of $500 was set aside for the use of this committee. Hence, the Exhibit at St. Paul was the first official attempt of this kind. Surely no one who visited and inspected the large,
more » ... conveniently displayed collection of varied and interesting nature, in the Ryan Annex, but will agree that the committee had done its work very successfully and that the money expended was put to good use. The Exhibit was interesting from various view-points. Perhaps the beautiful preservation of natural colors seen in many of the specimens preserved for museum purposes by Kaiserling's method, or some modification thereof, would attract the special attention of the more hurried and superficial inspector. But even the expert pathological anatomist could not but admire the per¬ fect result demonstrated by some of the exhibitors. And the general practitioner had here a splendid oppor¬ tunity to see the gross lesions of many of the diseases, rare and otherwise, which he sees more or less frequently clinically. The instructiveness and suggestiveness of tho pathological specimens were surely of much value to many. A series of bacterial cultures, mounted in a novel manner, attracted considerable notice because of their value for demonstration and instruction. 1. June 15.
