In running through these publications we shall chiefly extract such portions as may be of practical value. However experienced a medical superintendent may be, he can generally pick up some hint by learning what has been going on elsewhere, though this desire may be carried too far, and degenerate into the merest curiosity and love of gossip. Perhaps the most valuable portion of the Reports are the criticisms by the Commissioners in Lunacy. Any defect pointed out, any suggestion made, should suggest to every medical superintendent the propriety of inquiry as to the condition of his own asylum in that particular. If a man does that honestly he will do much good work.
