While doing such missionary work as I have been able on the subject of fevers, I have frequently heard the argument that with the eradication of malaria the medical profession in the country districts would be, like Othello, without an occupation. I do not charge any member of the profession with such narrowness and fallacious logic; I think rather, that we have been slow in taking hold of the prophylaxis of malaria chiefly because it involved unsolved problems and not because we thought it would injure our business.
