The idea is entertained by some of our most sincere professional brethren, that to lengthen and multiply our Winter Lectiu es will be of necessity to advance the cause of medical education. It is a fair subject for consideration whether they do not overrate the relative importance of that particular mode of mstruction which forms the larger part of these courses. As this School coidd only lengthen its lecture term at the expense of its Summer Session, mwhich more direct, personal and familiar teaching takes the place of our academic discourses, and m Avhich more time can be given to hospitals, infirmaries, and practical instruction in various important specialties, whatever might be gained, a good deal would certainly be lost ui our case by the exchange. The most essential part of a students instruction is obtained, as I beheve, not in the lecture-room, but at the bedside. Nothing seen there is lost; the rhythms of disease are learned by frequent repetition ;its unforeseen occurrences stamp themselves indelibly in the memory.
