Switzerland's First Woman Doctor. Dr. Caroline Farner, who. was of English descent, recently died in Zurich at the ago of seventy-one years. She is believed to have been the first woman doctor in Switzerland to take her university degree in medicine.

Mint'. Farner perseveres!, and' during I the last twenty-five years had a J large practice among women and J children in Zurich. She was well- j to-do, so onl\ charged nominal prices for consultations, and did much good among the poor.
