Tecumseh, Mich., March 10, 1898.
To the Editor:
—In these days of push, of progress, of smokeless gunpowder, of climbing to the pinnacle of fame by every available means, is it not right, yea, is it not the only certain method by which a young and ambitious medical graduate can lift himself bodily into the aerie of success, by advertising his wares in the secular press where he locates, and informing his patrons through the press of his undoubted ability after the following manner?Dr. Obediah Hayseed, assisted by Dr. Mossback and Dr. Falstaff of Rouge's Hollow, successfully removed a tumor from Mrs. George Gumbo. The patient is doing nicely. Is this not the proper method of becoming eminent with a single bound? Respectully yours,
