Fiske-Fund Prize Questions.

--We see by the following notice, that Dr. E. S. Gaillard, Surgeon 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.
