From fifty injected specimens, the gross anatomy of the Common Rat has been studied and outlined. The results of the work have further proven the studies of McClure and Silvester on the Lymphatico-venous communications in the Jugulo-subclavian district, and of Silvester on the renal vein communications, and have established two additional communications, the portal vein connection and the ilio-lumbar vein connection. The main circulation and disposition of the lymphatic system has been determined and the need of further knowledge concerning the histology of the lymph nodes, of which there appear to be two types, is pointed out.
