THE STERILIZATION OF MILK AND THE STATUS OF OUR KNOWLEDGE UPON THIS SUBJECT.Read in the Section of Diseases of Children at the Forty-second Annual Meeting of the American Medical Association, held at Washington, D. C., May, 1891.

In presenting this subject, I feel that I am going over ground well elaborated before me, yet even in the face of this, it is somewhat surprising to find the lack of systematic idea entertained by physicians upon the subject of milk or its sterilization. This most important innovation upon infant feeding has, even in our journals, been granted faint praise in occasional paragraphs.

Though the work done thus far in this field has been most painstaking and scientific, it has not fully reached those for whose benefit these investigations are mostly undertaken,—the medical public. There are scattered through the French and German literature some very classical articles upon this subject, but no English writer has of late attempted to systematize and classify the ideas presented. If this article will deal with some scientific and abstruse data, it will endeavor to bring these in direct relation with our daily practice
