"Resolved, That notice be given that the price of the Transactions shall be fixed at $10, to those persons desiring to purchase, and that such persons be requested to send their names, with the amount, not later than November 1, to Dr. E. S. F. Arnold, Newport, Rhode Island, the Treasurer."
Gleditschine, not Stenocarpine, is the proper name of the new local anæsthetic mentioned editorially in The Journal of September 17. The Gleditschia triacanthos, or thorny locust is the tree from which it is obtained.
