SODIUM CACODYLATE IN ERYTHEMA MULTIFORME.-W. Cuthbertson, of Chicago, reports a case of erythema multiforme in a woman aged 27 that had existed from childhood, occurring every fall and disappearing in the winter. Intramuscular injections of three-quarters of a grain of sodium cacodylate, given twice a week for several weeks, completely relieved the attack. Each injection was followed by relief and the disease disappeared entirely, leaving her in better condition, according to her own statement, than she had ever been in since it first occurred. From his experience in this case, Cuthbertson would recommend sodium cacodylate injections for trial in all cases of erythema, more especially in the angio-neurotic type.-Medical Brief.

THE PULSE IN DIPHTHERIA.-The pulse may be said to practically always indicate the seriousness of the disease. An intermittent pulse at any stage of the disease should always excite suspicion and alarm that all is not well. A thready, rapid pulse, is also a cause for alarm, and if, even in the convalescent stage, there should be an attack of vomiting, with aforesaid pulse, you will almost invariably lose your patient. -Hahn. Monthly.-Fleagle.
