As is already well known, the Legislaturo at itt last session, appropriated funds for the support of a Homeopathie Medical School and a Dental School. The Eegents with promptness at a succeeding meeting ordered these departments put iuto operation, and set about providing the necessary buildings, auxiliaries, and instructora. Both schools will open simultaneously with the oíd medical department and a large portion of the work of the three will be the same and will be purBued in coininon, all enjoying equal facilities. The first annual announcement of these new departments have just appeared, and to represent them faithfully we have summarized their contents and given the result below. The Homeopathie School.

Women will be adinitted on the same terms that men are, but will have separate lectures, except on general chemistry, separate dissecting rooms, etc. Students in this college will receive instruction in materia medica and therapeutics from Prof. Jones, and in theory and practice of medicine from Prof. Morgan. To gain instruction in general chemistry, anatoiny, organic and appliedchemi8try, physiology, ophthalmology, otology and practical anatomy, surgery, obstetrics and diseases of women and children, they wili altend the tures on those subjects in the department of medicine and surgery.

Chemistry will aid the student in understanding the importan part chemical agents play in the diseases of the dental apparatus. He will attend lectures on organic and inorganic chemistry, besides which he will enjoy the advantages of the chemical laboratory, for the practical study of al those agents or secretions that concern bis future needs in the prevention anc cure of disea8e. Special instruction will be given in the anatomy and histology of all that pertains to the ora apparatus to give the student through acquaintance with the región of his fu ture professional practice. The denta student will be greatly benefiied by the lecturea on obstétrica and allied sub jects, 8ince the conditions of maternity and the provisions tberefor so often disturb the system. In short, the advan tages offered by a fully equipped medical college are of auch iniportaace tha the attendance upon at least one enter course of medical lectuies is regardee na the proper foundation for the subse quent study of this specialty.
