Change of Air. By J. C. Atkinson, M.D. (Triibner.)—We can

hardly commend Dr. Atkinson'a treatise as satisfactory to general readers. It may possibly be beneficial to some medical advisers, if they are content to follow out its suggestions, and are not dissatisfied with what seems to us vague and inconclusive. No doubt it is true that mere change of air cannot bo a remedy for all evils, and that all sea side places are not equally good for all patients. But surely medical. science is not in such a state as to maintain the affirmative of these two propositions.
