THIS is a small guide-book to Vichy, pleasantly written. It contains, as usual in such books, a general account of the place, its springs bathing establishments and environs, analyses of the waters, and an enumeration of the diseases in which they are said to be useful. We doubt whether the latter part will be of very much service either to medical men or to invalids; it might, we think, have been omitted with advantage.
