Our British contemporary, the Medical Press and Circular, editorially notices a peculiar method of revenging insults to the medical profession which, while we can not commend it, is perhaps somewhat excusable under the circumstances. In an Irish community certain of the public authorities had given out gratuitous and highly offensive utterances in regard to the medical profession in the district. The local branch of the British Medical Association made, our confrère says, an inarticulate but very effective reply. They did not resolve to boycott or refuse their medical services to the offending parties, but made a rule that special fees should be charged them and their families. The surest way to touch most people is through their pockets, and our contemporary hopes it will be effective in this case.
