    THE British Fire Prevention Committee, whose fire surveyors have been undertaking the fire precautionary arrangements in innumerable hospitals throughout the country, recently indicated in one of its reports that medical men who are prone to forethought are particularly ready to take precautions in such establishments as hospitals. We therefore specially welcome the little book before us, from the pen of a medical man connected with the New York State Department of Health. As it is largely based on American practice, much of the detail does not hold good in this country, yet the principles enunciated are sound.

    A Manual of Fire Prevention and Fire Protection for Hospitals.
