The Medical Register says of the MEDICAL WORLD Visiting List: “The great advantage of the List over others with which we are familiar is the fact that the services rendered, with the amounts charged, are entered in writing and figures, and not in symbols. Hence, the book may be presented in court in case of dispute, and will be accepted as book of original entry. It has merits which stand second to the former, such as small bulk, neatness, good paper and print, and ready facility for reference. But the first is the best reason, to our mind, for its use. Physicians' book-keeping is now a complicated, inefficient and awkward procedure, and any means that may be introduced to simplify and render it more accurate are worthy of commendation. Hence, we feel justified in strongly recommending this List to our readers.

Lentz's Aseptic Compact Operating Set, No. 10.


We have from time to time made improvements to this set and are now making a perfect aseptic set, which offers especial facilities for aseptic precautions; the blades are soldered into hollow German-silver handles, nickel plated, aro light so as not to be unwieldy and admit of a firm grasp when operating.

The saw is adjusted to the handle on an entirely new principle, being made to separata easily and to facilitate thorough cleansing.

The handle is entirely of metal and tenogtrated to overcome unnecessary weight.

Scissors and Forceps baving French locks can be separated, and the slide can be easily removed from Artery and Needle Forceps.

Therefore, no opportunity is offered ior the lodgment and development of germs.

The entire set is patterned with especial reference to facility in cleansing.

The instruments can be sterilized by placing them in boiling water, without fear of damaging them. Wood or rubber handles will not admit of this procedure. For price see case A.

The following instruments are put up in either a fine Mahogany or Morocco case, with pickel tuimmings, lined with velvet, and has an extra space for Trephine with handle, and Elevator if desired.

One Amputating Knife (6-in. blade); One Finger Knife; One Hernia Kpife; One Sharp Curved Bistoury; Two Scalpels; One Tenotome; One Tenaculum; One Pair Scissors, curved or flat; One Saw (9 in, blade);
