Oran, Mo., Aug. 26, 1895.
To the Editor:
—If allowed space I will make a brief reply to Amicus Veritatis.To believers in the Code, medicine is a profession; to nonbelievers it is used as a trade. The Code was written for the benefit of believers and in condemnation of unbelievers and their practices. Any argument on the question should be addressed to believers. To them the Code is effective and has penalties for its violation—but to the unbeliever it is a dead letter. Very respectfully submitted,
