International Medical Congress.
— The Provincial Medical Journal says: "The time for the International Medical Congress is drawing near, and arrangements are now being made with various companies for transfer. We had a very pleasant party to America, and we should be pleased to hear from those who went to America, and others, so as to form a special contingent to Berlin. This Congress promises to be well attended, and probably 5,000 medical men will be present. From what we hear the Congress will be one of great scientific interest, and all the arrangements will be admirably carried out."
Death of Dr. W. H. Byford.
—We regret to have to chronicle the death of Dr. Wm. Heath Byford, of Chicago, the eminent gynecologist, who succumbed to an attack of angina pectoris after an illness of only two hours. Dr. Byford was born in 1817 and was 73 years of age.
