' Lord Byron, iu his reported conversa tions with the Cooutces of Elessiagton, remarked to her that "medical men do not sufficiently attend to idiosyncrasies, on which so much depends, and often hurry to tho grave one patient by a treatment that has succeeded in anoth er. The moment they ascertain a dis ease to be tho same as one they have known they conclude the same remedies that cured the first most remove those of the second; not making allowances for the peculiarities of temperament, habits and disposition, which last has a great influence on maladies." These re marks are simple exaggerations of feel-, ing and fact. Byron was no more enam ored of the medical profession than he was of professors of divinity, bat be was an acute observer, and it was inter esting to read his views respecting idiosyncrasies. Ho judged rightly, very rightly, of their importance in connec tion with the practice of medicine. New York Ledger. Hem Sekrm' Exrumlon. Mar- X onA IT t.a r T r r. rt "" fcu , 11. 1. IV I .
