The man of the future will be a sane , dlscaseless , sturdy , stupid creature when science shall have lobbed the world of both disease and genius. 1 Such was the picture drawn today by Dr. William G. McCallum , professor ser of pathology in the Columbia mil- \ersity college of physicians and sur geons. Ho was speaking at the openIng - Ing of the school year of the Institu tion. Ills subject was "The Fnturn of t Medicine. " All diseases except those due to accidental causes , such as a burn , poisoning , cuts , etc. , would be entirely eliminated , he asserted. "In the study of disease , " said he , "we have made the most progress up to date , but in the cure of disease wo have made little , with a few brilliant exceptions , including yellow fever. "All Insanity in time will be stamp ed out witli the exception of that re sulting from Impiudenco nnd intemper ance , which always will exist , as they are tlio price of a man's personal lib erty. " Ol' the ellseaseless. insanity-proof age , Professor McCallum said : "Indeed , since development of gen ius and of special individuality nnd charm seldom seem allied with per fect mental symmetry and balance , but rather with some alight defect which permits concentration in anoth er direction , I am not sure that It might not be very dull to live amour I people of invariable , unblemished san ity.
