especial care to correct the present evil that has for years obtained, towit: The unbridled abandon by which certain Denver physicians have -by a mouthy prominence, and perverse inclination to be continuously heard-ridden over and trampled down less egotistical but equally deserving country members. We believe that our much admired toastmaster, and highly esteemed president, is just the man above all others to rebuke all further proceedings of this kind. The appointment of Dr. Davis to the office of President is one of those rare occurrences where a society is honored by the officer equal to, if not more than that conferred. Congratulations should be felt by all, that a man of such wide experience, learning, and respectability, has been elected president.

DENVER MEDICAL TIMES.

With this, the first number of volume five, we desire to thank the Medical Profession of the west for past favors received, and to again renew our oft repeated request for short papers, reports of societies, and interesting cases. We know from past experience that our medical friends of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico, appreciate such articles from their near neighbors. In their name we ask of you all to contribute your mite, that in the end we may be better acquainted, one with the other.

We hope that our eastern friends, who have so kindly written articles for THE TIMEs, may continue to grant us their favors. The editor -having a just appreciation of the difficulties, and the amount of time, and labor that must necessarily be devoted to publishing THE TIMEShas associated with him as assistant editor, Dr. G.W. Tibbits, of Denver. We believe that our readers will soon recognize with satisfaction his wellknown, untiring efforts to advance the cause of medicine. In our combined capacity it is the intention to make The Times an independent Journal, free from college or society ownership, and run solely in the interest of the medical profession. In preserving these, our rights, we grant to all our medical brethren-be he in city or country, near or distant--and equality not otherwise attainable. We flatter ourselves that this laudable purpose will meet with a just appreciation, and increased usefulness.

We print in this number the first of a series of papers upon Colorado and Western Physicians, owing to an unavoidable occurence the cut in. tended to represent Dr. Gehrung is not such as we wished or expected. With future papers we promise that such mishaps will not again occur.
