THE head-quarters of this remedy are at Meran, in the Tyrol, of whieh pro- vince it was some time the capital. Apart from the specific bencfits of the " cure," Meran has much to recommend it in the way of climate, to which, we suspect, the grape treatment owes not a little of its efficacy. In August, September, and October, its population of 4500 is considerably reinforced by German, Russian, and Italian visitors, who, with a sprink- ling of English and Americans, have come for the "cure." Accommoda- tion is comfortable and cheap-cheaper, while not less comfortable, than in most of the Italian and French places of resort. Invalids suffering from chest affections-bronchitis or consumption in its pre-tubercular stage-are the chief subjects of the grape treatment. Less than three pounds of grapes a day is not enough for efficacy. The patient begins with one or two pounds per diem, dividing the quantity into three por- tions-one taken an hour before breakfast; the next before dinner, which comes off at 12.30 or 1 and the last in the afternoon or evening. The grapes are eaten sub Jove frigido, and after two or three days the quantity is increased by half a pound until it reaches three or four pounds. This amount often suffices the patient, who finds, as a rule, that he gains in weight and in strength also. Chronic liver complaints, especially when due to excesses in wine-drinking, are, it is said, markedly relieved by the "grape cure," the potash salts in the fruit supplying the element which the wine, in the process of manufacture, has lost. Hepatic dropsy has been known to be mitigated in this way. Patients should not be dis- couraged if, after the first day or two, they feel not so well as they were before; while one signal point in favour of the " cure" is this, that no special diet is enforced. Indeed the grapes themselves become so satis- fying that indulgence in other food is hardly necessary. Before trying the cure, however, the patient should have his case thoroughly examined by his physician, who will tell him how and to what extent he may avail himself of the N atur-therapie" of Meran.

HYPODERMIC SYRINGE WITH EXPANDING PISTON. To the Editor of THE LANCET. SIR,-In your journal of to-day’s date, under the heading of "New In- vention," we find an instrument described as above. We wish to inform Messrs. Maycr that we made hypodermic syringes (precisely in accordance with the description given) certainly three years ago ; and if you refer to our Illustrated Catalogue published in January, 1873, at page 126, you will find as follows :—" Improved hypodermic syringe, with conical plunger and two gold pipes in case. The plunger has attached a conical point, secured by a screw to the piston-rod; upon screwing the rod, the conical point is drawn upwards, and presses against the plunger." It is a very useful in- strument, but can scarcely be called a new invention. We remain, Sir, your obedient servants, May 30th, 1874. ARNOLD AND SONS. THE TITLE OF DOCTOR AND THE KING AND QUEEN’S COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS IN IRELAND. A CORRESPONDENT has received the following letter in reference to the right of a licentiate to place "doctor" on his plate. It is important to say, the letter is printed. Evidently the College has this;question put to it so often as to have printed forms. When a custom is so questionable it is almost certainly wrong. But here is the letter :- "hING AND QUEEN’S COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS IN IRELAND. t. College Hall, Kildarc-street, Dublin. "SIR -In reply to your queries, I beg to inform you that a full report of the decision of the Master of the Itolls, in ’re Trinity College v. Col- lege of Physicians,’ will be found in the Dublin morning papers of the 27th April, 1864, to the effect that this College has not the power to grant the degree of M.D, but in no way affecting the rights of licentiates to the usual prefix of doctor. " am, Sir, your obedient servant, "J. M. FINNY, M.D., Fellow & Registrar." We think this letter very discreditable to the College of Physicians. To tell its licentiates that they may use the title of doctor in the same breath that they tell them they cannot make them doctors of medicine is, to say the least, embarrassing. If doctors, then of what are they doctors ? and if not doctors of medicine, are they doctors of divinity. Our correspond- ent will understand that, in our opinion, he cannot use the title of doctor. The user of it should be prepared to answer this question-Doctor of what P SOMETHING LIKE A "RETURN." MR. OwEN LEwIS, M.P., has given notice of his intention to move an ad- dress for returns from all rural parishes in England and Wales, showing the number of cottages in each parish, the number of rooms in each cottage, and the number, ages, and sexes of the occupants, together with the number of allotments of fields and garden ground, and their extent. Highly interesting and valuable this information would be, no doubt; but has Mr. Lewis formed to himself any idea of the cost of such a return ? What he really wants involves a combination of the Census and new Domesday machinery, and that would be a formidable affair for the Chancellor of the Exchequer. M. B.
