Fiske-Fund Prize Questions.
--We see by the following notice, that Dr. E. S. Gaillard
of the First Regiment Maryland Volunteers, has just taken the Fiske-Fund Prize
‘"The trustees of the Fiske Fund
, at the annual meeting of the Rhode Island
Medical Society, held in Providence
, June 19, 1861, announced that they had awarded a premium of one hundred dollars to E. S. Gaillard
, M. D., for the best dissertation on 'Ozone — its relations to health and disease.'"’
The essays were handed in by the first of May.
May-be the enterprising Rhode Islanders intended to steal the money back from the Doctor
, if they encountered him at Manassas
No doubt some that came with Governor Sprague
had that idea in view when they enlisted.
