JOHN TURNER, a Homoeopathic physician. In his Annual Report he says that out of 245 children admitted daring the year, 197 have been under treatment. There have no deaths occurred, although there have been many serious cases. He attributes much of the sickness to the filthy condition of the children when admitted, and to the location of the Institution in a malarious district. …. We have received from Mr. F. E. Boericke, Homoeopathic Pharmaceutist Philadelphia, a neatly printed card containing the names, address and office hours of the Homoeopathic physicians of that city: similar to the one published yearly in Now York and Brooklyn by Smith & Son. We find the number in Philadelphia, as elsewhere, increasing, and so fast that Mr. Boericke has found it necessary, in meeting the wants of physicians, to open a new pharmacy in Spring Garden Street, still retaining his old stand in South Seventh Street. …. Our readers will be pleased to learn that Dr. Caroll Dunham, of whose illness we spoke in a previous number, is so much better that he will shortly sail for the West Indies, where he intends spending the rest of the winter. …. Dr. Thomas J. Pomeroy, formerly of Utica, has removed to Detroit, Mich. Dr. S. Bailey, of Watertown, has taken his practice in Utica. …. Dr. B. C. Macy, for many years residing in Brooklyn, has lately settled at Dobbs Ferry, in this state: a change he was compelled to make on account of the ill-health of his wife. …. Dr. Lewis Dodge has left Cleveland and is now located in Buffalo, N. Y …. Dr. T. P. Knapp has removed from St. Andrews, N. Y., to St. Thomas, C. W.
