for doing si; one, that I was living up
to the law and expected others to do
the same; others being that I had re
port or complaints lrom six different
parties n to irregularities. These
noonli I could summon to my aid at
once if need be.
My article was in the form of a warn

I know that I was privileged to keep
the names of the patients and tho im
plicated from the delegation, and
further told tho said delegation from
the said Medical Society they had tho
privilege to do as they pleased. Now
believe me, there was none more willing
for me to keep quiet than tho ones who
seemed to bo the busiest to ferret out
tho offender. (Tho delegation excopted
of course.) "Howoverths guilty con
science neodsno reproving."
1 am sorry for most, yes, all of the
members of the Medical Society, for

with the sheep. (This being their lair

Well, may tho finger of suspicion
point to somoot these arch conspirators
for business, for not alono in the
