The Homoeopathic profession of the whole United States will sympathize deeply with Dr. O. S. Runnells, of Indianapolis, ex-president of the American Institute of Homeopathy, in the sorrowful bereavement he has recently sustained in the loss of his wife from La Grippe. The Journal's profoundest sympathies go out to Dr. Runnells in his bereavement.

The Homæopaths of California are not only fighting for representation on the State Board of Health, but they are hot on the trail of the Napa Insane Asylum.

A just and persistent demand for our rights will always secure them.
