For several years tours to the various watering places and springs of France have been organized by the physicians of that country, thus allowing the participants to combine pleasure and instruction. Last summer two similar tours were planned in Germany, one embracing the saline springs of middle Germany, and the other the watering places on the North Sea. The latter tour began at Hamburg, and the tourists returned after spending eleven days at several of the most prominent resorts. They were carried on one of the steamers of the North Sea Line, which had been placed at their disposal. The men who planned and directed this tour have edited a book of 178 pages containing articles on the various resorts visited and on the influence of a marine climate. Many of the names occurring in the book are well-known writers and teachers.
Similar tours in Germany are to be made
