A physician was recently stamped to death in Oklahoma by an ex-patient from whom he was trying to collect a bill for medical attendance. As a lay journal remarks, this appears "to be only a little more exaggerated example of the ingratitude which is manifested every day by a world in which billions of people are very quick to call physicians and very slow to pay them." It is refreshing to note this comment, indicating as it does a correct appreciation of facts in a quarter where it is not always looked for.
