As previously, we furnished them with a program for an evening session in Massey Hall.
The British teachers, too, sent ont under the auspices of Mr. Mosely. visited us in small parties during the Fall Term.
In November, we made an exhibit at the Fruit and Flower Show in Toronto, and helped in instructing the visiting school children. Previous to the show there was a demonstration and lecture to the teachers on practical nature collecting.
We extend our thanks again to the College Faculty at large for the valuable help they have given us in our work. We have tried to arrange for short series of lectures or demonstrations in every department, so that our students may have a comprehensive view of the work of the college.

ALICE G. ROW SOME,
THE COLLEGE PHYSICIAN.
To the President of the Ontario Agricultural College :
Sir,-I beg to present to you my report for the year now closing.
The health of Macdonald Hall has been fairly good during the year. On three occasions we were obliged, during last winter, to remove patients to the General Hospital of this city for treatment. Many of the residents suffered from Tonsilitis and Influenza, but no grave conditions developed among them. Early in January a case of Varicella occurred on one of the students but, fortunately, no others contracted the disease. Amongst the staff employed in the kitchen a number of minor accidents occurred-slight burns and scalds and injuries from the bread-cutter. In one instance this machine took a large slice off the ball of the thumb of the young lady's left hand, and she was laid off work for some time. Thus far this fall the students of Macdonald Hall have enjoyed health.
Among the young men attending the College Tonsilitis and Influenza were of frequent occurrence during the winter and also during the late autumn months. A number of minor accidents have come under my care, and one case of Appendicitis. I have also to report a fracture of the femur
I in the oldest employee amongst the female help in the College. In coming down a short stair she fell and sustained what practitioners consider a bad form of the injury. She was removed to St. Joseph's Hospital for treatment, where she is making a very satisfactory recovery. In the month of December a case of Varicella occurred in the College but spread to no others.
The occurrence of these two cases of contagious disease emphasizes very strongly the need for suitable hospital accommodation in this large and growing institution. At the present time there is no place in which to isolate a case of contagious disease during any period of doubt as to its nature. The general sanitary condition of the College is excellent.
