The Minutes of the last meeting were read, confirmed and signed.

Messrs. KNOTT, PARROTT, SMALLWOOD and JOSCELYNE joined in a discussion, Mr. VICKERY replying.

Mr. A. L. BOSTOCK gave a paper on "The Articulation of Artificial Dentures," dealing mainly with complete cases for edentulous mouths. Many of Mr. Bostock's points were novel and practical. A hearty discussion followed in which most members present took part.

The collection on behalf of the Benevolent Fund amounted to 16s. 6d. A cordial vote of thanks to Messrs. Vickery and Bostock brought the meeting to a close.

The second meeting was held at the Medical Institute on Thursday, December 12, 1901; in the unavoidable absence of the President (Mr. J. L. Robertson), Mr. J. MOUNTFORD was voted to the chair.

Mr. CALE-MATTHEWS showed a case of "Inlays," there being seven inlays in the four upper incisors in a girl of 15; these were done two years ago by Jenkins' method, and showed no signs of weakness and were not noticeable.

Dr. W. J. MCCARDIE read a most exhaustive paper on “General Anæsthesia in Dental Practice" going most minutely into the uses, advantages and otherwise of the various anæsthetics now in use. Dr. McCardie's paper was listened to with great interest, and it is to be hoped he may be persuaded to publish it.

A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to Dr. McCardie for his paper and to Mr. Cale-Matthews for the case of inlays. Both paper and casual communication were keenly discussed, the following gentlemen taking part: Messrs. Brooks, Parrott, Knott, Shedden, Mountford and Whittles.

The Benevolent Fund collection amounted to 128.
