Homoeopathy in Rio de Janeiro. - The capital of Brazil has thirty homoeopathic physicians and fifteen pharmacies exclusively homeopathic. She possesses a flourishing society; The Hahnemannnian Institute of Brazil which publishes an organ The Annals of Homoeoapthic Medicine, a monthly journal. In 1902, General Mallet, Minister of War, placed some of the wards of the model military hospital in charge of the homoeopaths. The service which was managed by Drs. Meirelles and Auletta has given remarkable results. Out of the 1328 cases treated homoeopathically there were 35 deaths, a mortality of 2.7 per cent. The allopathic mortality in the same hospital was 3.4 per cent. -- Translation from Journal Belge d'Homoeopathic.
