A medical gentleman on whom a Journal representative called, said that he did not care to belong to the Association, " because," said he, " the organization is simply a mutual admiration society." Exactly so, and if our fugacious friend wishes to be thoroughly admired, he, too, should join the Association, and assist in the noble work of making it the greatest medical organization the world has yet known. The members of the Association may have their little disagreements on the floor of the convention, but they do sincerely admire each other, for they are all engaged in trying to do their best to advance the interests of the profession. Cranks and pessimists exist in every calling and profession. The American Medical Association possibly has its share of them, but the great heart of the organization pulsates with affection toward all Fellows of the Association, and kindness toward all mankind.
