The Lebanon Hospital, Asfurieh.—Much activity, before recorded, is still maintained. We note that the total space available is sufficient for 95 patients. The admissions numbered 102, while the discharges numbered 91 and the deaths 11. This represents a turnover that is probably unapproached in activity in any other institution, except, perhaps, Bethlem. The recoveries were 25 per cent for the males and 46 for the females; for both sexes together, 33 per cent The fact that there were only three relapsed cases in the year proves that due care in assigning recovery has been exercised. The active nature of the cases, perhaps, is best shown thus: about half the cases were discharged and half the deaths occurred with under three months' treatment. Seven males and two females were the subjects of general paralysis. Twenty-four were classed as cases of dementia praecox of one sort or another, acute mania claiming 25 and acute melancholia 17.
