This Committee was continued at the Saratoga meeting of the Association with instructions to prepare a constitution and by-laws for county societies in conformity with and in continuation of the general plan of organization already adopted for the Association and for state societies.

In submitting the results of its labors the Committee desires to explain that, while the provisions contained in the constitution proposed are deemed essential to good organization, as will be readily seen, some of the provisions contained in the by-laws are suggestive and educational in character, and may not be applicable to every county or section. In such cases these may be omitted. or others more appropriate substituted for them. In any event the high ideals for the individual physician, and the spirit of courtesy and kindness which should govern him in his dealings with his professional neighbors, as here set forth, are commended for thoughtful consideration.
