CAN BE HAD IF WANTED. "Have you any malaria hore?" asked a lady who was looking at a rural boarding-placo for her famíly. "Well," said the 1 andlady, "we hain'i got any jist now; folks haven't asked for if; but wo'll get it for your family if you want it." Most people got malaria without wanting it. Xo get rid of its noxious efleets, uso Brown's Iron Bitters. -Mrs. S. R. MacUonald, Now Haven, Conn., says, "I have sufFurcd from malaria for nearly six years. Brown's Iron Bitters cured me complotoly." The Minister of Education in England has reeently mado report that the attendanco nttho public schools has, within a fow year?, risen from 2,000,000 to 5,000,000, and that a result has been a vory considerable diminution in juvenilo crimo. ín this statement ho is conörmed by the London police.g DOCTORS FUBIOUS. Shail a Physician Teil the Truth or Not? A Nice Point in Ethics. A SciiHlhle llcultli OHifiul. Bai.timokk, Mi. - A decided stir has been caused líere over tho question as to Dio right of a physician to certify to tho nierits of a remedy not in the modern pharmacopoeia. Dr. Jamts A Steuart, one of the most eminent pbjsicians in tho South and Health Commisioncr of this city, had analyzcd a nowly discovered articlo, and cortilied oüicially not only to its ils efiic&cy but to tho iact that it replaced old time preparations of a similar charactor which analysis had proved, wero adultratod and poisonous. Tho Medical and Chirurgical F&culty, of which ho is a momber. held that he had vblated the code of medical ethics, and much public interest was aroused becauso of tho conüdence feit both in bis professional standing and official integrlty. It, was argued that to thus placo a limitation on the acts of a physician, and eapecially of a hoalth oflicor, was opposed to tho spirit of tho age; that such reasoning rnight have teen logical enough when it was to the interest of rulers or societies to invest themselves with a supernatural halo, but now whon thought should bé free and untrammelod, such things savored of barbarism. It was the duty of a physician, especially óf ahoalth oüicer, to condemn publicly any remedv which ho knew to be injurious, but it was not right to say that he should bo debarred from testifying to the ïnerits of anything which he knew to b9 good. If this wero so, tho world would not receivo the benefit of half the disooveries made in art or scienco. Thus tho peo pie argued, whilo tho faculty threatened expulsión and talkod of timo-honored customs, othics, professional courtesy and traditions. But tho matter soon assumed a now and surprising phase. A fow days aftorward3 a certitícate appeared in the daily papers bearing tho autograph signatures of Gov. McLane, Attorney General Roberts, Mayor Latrobe, City Postmaster Adreon, chiefs of stato and municipal departments, Judges and Clerks of Courts, Federal officials and Congressmen, omphaticaUy endorsing tho action of tho Health Comaiissioner, and concurring in his opinioii as to the effioacy of the remedy, assorting that they did so from personal experienco with it and practical tests and ob - servations. Thero could bo no gainsaying such evidenco as this, but, as if to cap tho climax, shortly afterward? there appeared another certifícate with autograpb signatures of leading practicing physicians from all parts of the state, including tho physicians of all tho leadiug hospitals, the physician to tho City Firo Dopartment, tho Port physiciau, vaccine physician and resident physicians of intirmaries, all endorsing the discovery and stating that it had been tested by them in hospitals and 'private practico for weeks with wonderful curativo effect, and that analysis had shown no trace of opiates or poisons, prevalent in othor cough mixtures. Thoy;further htatod that tüey had been induced to take this step in view of the niany hurtful preparations which contained narcotios and poisons and cf the dan&ors consequent on their use. The remedy in qaebtion is Red Star Cough Curo. SuL-h a conclusive answer as this to the narrow argumenta of the few, arrayed public soutiment on tho side of tho Hoalth Cuminissioner, and it is significant that Dr. Steuart has sinco been appointud to offieo by tho Mayor for a thirci term, and ha3 had Ms appointment nnanimously coniirmed by the City Council. Oiving to tho high professional reputation of tho gentlemen who endorsed his action, as well :is to tho euviable standing of tho owners of the remudy, l'ho Charles a. Vogeler Company of this city, wirte-spread interest has already been created in tho subject, not j only here, but in Philadolphia, VVashingtou Kndotücrneighboringclties. The foeling Í3 geuoraüy expressed by professional men that Red Star Cough Cure, on acoouct of its freedosa froiu uarcot es and poisons, inauguratos a most desirable new deparmre in medicino. This is the pronounced opinión of authorities liko Dr. Fawcatt, who has boen for j thirty-throe years rosident physician of tho Union Protestant Infirmary, in this city, and Prof. John J. Caldweil, M. D., member of niddical socioties of Baltimore, New York and Brookli n, aod with a long experienco in civil and military hospitai's. Both of theso gentlemen, together with no less than fifty i other practicing physicians of j land, have publiclv put themselves on i record as to the cvii of narcotic j ciheo, and tho consequent valuó and iniportance of tho now discovery roforred to. It is conceded that public opinión has coiupletely vindicated Dr. Steuart in his action, and that in his whole courso he was actuated siniply by an. earnest dosire to benefit thocommunity at larsre.
