THE second edition of Dr. Knox's work, “Radiography and Radio-therapeutics,” is cpmpleted by the appearance of part ii., “Radio-therapeutics.” Part ii. leaves on the mind of the reader very much the same general impression as that of part i., namely, that of an excellent production. A perusal of the book shows an ever-widening range of utility of X-rays and radium in the treatment and alleviation of disease. They are agents which, under expert guidance, are beneficial in the treatment, not only of superficial ailments such as intractable skin diseases, but also of deep-seated conditions; and of these the treatment of internal growths, benign and malignant, claims much of the author's attention.
