Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy — The Nashville Academy of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy met in regular session at the office of Dr. Carruthers Monday evening, February 18. The minutes of the previous meeting were read by the Secretary, Dr. Townsend. A communication from the Bluff City Medical Association, inviting the State Association to meet in that city, Memphis, was read. On motion, of Dr. J.A. Lester, the local organization pledged support to the State body. The speaker of the evening was late in arriving. Dr. Caruthers suggested the discussion of an interesting case that had come under his observation. Drs. Elliott and Hale spoke concerning the case also.
The paper of the evening was read by Dr. Geeder. His subject was “Pneumonia.” The doctor gave his hearers a good, practical talk on this important topic. Drs.
