M- ■ - ' -The Anu Albor Medical and Surgicul Society held lts regular meeting last Tuesday eveuing, and alter sume pielimmtiry business v;s entertaiued by a paper froin Dr. Dunster on "Development of Monsters." The Dr. handled his subject vvith even more than his usual skill, displayiug thoroogh and accurate knowledge ot all its details, and presenting theni in so vt'ry interastiilg : nimmer that 110 one thought to stop him when the 30 minutes, the time nüotted to a pnper. vvus exhausted, 8O he went on tor au hour fonjef uid the timo seeined short to all present. The Dr. poiuted out the errors ia the popu lar belief regarding the conceptiou und lurtiutiou of monsters, coimucing all that they re uau.sod merely by anested development and ai-e not the progeuy of the Devil. Human monsters never (as is often written and commouly believed) have any relation to the lower animáis, but both párente are always human. These uufortuuately favored beings are formed acoording to Iaw8 as fixed and uuchaugeable as the laws of gravity. A few of these laws the Dr. inontioned and verified uot only from the large uuiüber of specimens he had on exhibition, but from every well authenticüted case on record by drawings whioh were passed around : doublé monsters are always of one sex, either both male or both female, but are most commonly female; the union is always' of like parts to like parts, bone to bone, vcssel to vessel, nerve to nerve, and the viscera are always transpoaed on one half or sule of thesa conipound beiugs. One feature tha Dr. said he could not account for was the marked difference in temperament displayed in doublé monsters. After a short discussion on the papar and some other business, it was decided that at the next meeting five deleates should be elected to attent] the animal meeting of the American Medical Association to behelü at liuffalo ; and a paper would be presented by Dr. Maclean on " Surgery as it was and is,"
