In response to our suggestion in a recent issue of The Journal, the Surgeon-General of the United States Army issues the following notice. We earnestly hope the Surgeon-General of the Navy and Marine-Hospital Service will also see the propriety of convening examining boards in other interior cities. This is as it should be.
AN ARMY MEDICAL BOARD
will be in session in Chicago, Ill., during February, 1892, for the examination of candidates for appointment in the Medical Corps of the United States Army, to fill existing vacancies.
Persons desiring to present themselves for examination by the Board will make application to the Secretary of War, before January 15, 1892, for the necessary invitation, stating the date and place of birth, the place and State of permanent residence, the fact of American citizenship, the name of the medical college from whence they were graduated, and a record of service in hospital,
