STORIES ABOUT DOCTORS.
Dr. Hatcliffc, despite "Matthew
Prior's bitter epigram, win the
ablest ns well as the most popular
physician of his day, and Ids inagiii
Jleent bequests to Oxford liave kept
his memory green in ours. It was
for practical know ledge and n quick
perception of disease, which to
slower minds appeared like magic,
rather 'than for great learning, that
Katcliffo was famous. Unrefined in
manner, coaise and seunilous in
language, with a wit that spared
neither friend nor foe, and with a
bluntness that treated King and
Commoner alike, he laachcd, not
withstanding, an eminence which, if
iucprac be a test, no English physi
cian had previously attained. It
was he who, when the Court physi
cians were divided in opinion, at
once pronounced the disease of
which Queen Mary died to be small
pox; it was he who bluntly told
King William he would not have His
Majesty's two legs -for 'his three
kingdoms; it was he who, when the
Princess Anne sent' for him by a.
messenger, who described her symp
toms, exclaimed with an- oath,that
her distemper was nothing but the
vapors;, it was he who told her
when Queen for much as Anne dis
liked him, she was forced to send
for him that Prince George had
been so badly treated by the doctois
that nothing' iu the ,ai t of physic
could keep him alive more than six
clays. Patients, were never allow ed
to entertain delusive hopes by Eat
cliffe, yot his reputation was bound
less, and his fees arc said to have
amounted to twenty guineas a. day,
an enormous sum, considering the
value of money two centuries ago.
Long before his death, in 1714, he
was woith more than 80,000. As
an illustration of the generous fees
he obtained, it may ba mentioned
that for going to Namur in 1G95 to
attend to Lord Albcrmarle, with
whom he remained a week, Katcliffo
received from William III. 1,200,
and from Lord Albcrmarle himself
100 guineas and a diamoud ring.
Such fees, however, noble as they
are, seem inconsiderable when com
pared to the lavish treatment of Dr.
Dimsdale, the founder of a well-
known banking-iouse in the City.
For successfully inoculating the Em
press Catherine at St. Petersburg,
and her son the Grand Duke, he was
rewarded with the rank of "Baron of
the Empire, Councillor of State,
with a pension of 500 per annum,
and a present in money of 12,000.
, Dr., Mead, the, friend of Pope, is
known ..to.h'ave had? a professional
income of from live to six thousand
guincasiJor many successive years,
yand.iu one year he lcceivcd as much
as biVen thousand. The elder Dr.
Warren, who died in 1797, one of
the most popular of men, and the
favorite' physician of his time, real-
ized nine thousand a year from the"
time of the Regency, and bequeath'-
-! ed to his family about one hundred
and 'fifty thousand pounds. Dr.
Baillie's income for many years
ranged from nine to ten thousand ;
'andJSIr Henry Halford's professional
1UCUU1U, 11UIU U1U UCUXI1 Ul JJ1.
Uaillic to the death of William IV.,
when his attendance on the Court
terminated, is known to have uni
formly exceeded ten thousand, and
was not infrequently more than
eleven thousand in the year. Dr.
Chambers, who succeeded to the posi
tion in public estimation and in pro
fessional employment which had
been so long occupied by Sir Henry
.Ilalford, had a professional income
'ranging for some years between
seven and nine thousand guineas,
but he never exceeded, it is believed,
the larger amount.
Dr. Hope, if we remember rightly,
said that a London physician could
', not.fairly make more than 5,000 a
year. Dr. Williams has lately told
the public that in no year did his
income exceed 7,000; but there
are great prizes in the profession
still, and ,we read of a popular phy
sician of the present day, who on
two occasions received a thousand
guineas for going to Pan, and a fee
of fifteen hundred guineas for visit
ing a patient at Pitlochy, and re-
t. maining there for a week.
When in 'the hurry of great busi
ness, when his day's work, as he
used to nay, amounted to seventeen
hours, Dr. Baillio was sometimes
rather irritable, and betrayed a want
of temper in hearing the tiresome
, details of an unimportant story.
t After listening with toiture to a
' prosy account from a lady who ailed
so little that she was going to the
opera that evening, he had happily
escaped fiora the loom, when he
was urgently requested to step up
'utairs again; it was to ask him
whether on hor jeturn from, the
opera she might eat some oysteis?
"Yes, ma'am," said Baillie, "shells
Many English phy&iclans haye
been distinguished for wit and learn
ing, or for pursuits apart from their
special vocation as doctors of medi
cine. There is Dr. Prout, without
question tho greatest animal chemist
this country has produced. There
is Sir Thomas Ufonnc, of the "Ho
ligto Medico," whoso books Chailes
Lamb loved so dcaily. Tlicic is
Aibuthnot, pcihaps the greatest wit
of an ago tlmt produced Swift.
Thcic is Sir Richard Blackmorc, one
of the physicians to William HI.,
but bolter known ns thcaulhor of
tho six dullest epics contained in our
llter.itmc. Thcic is Sir Samuel
Garth) a popular physician and a
small poet, of whose verses Johnson
has truly said that "no passages fall
below mcdiociily, and few rise much
above it." It was Gnrth who said
he as tiled of life, tired of having
to put on his shoes and lako them
off every day. According .to Pope,
he was a Cluistiaii without knowing
it, but the story runs tlmt on his
deathbed he sent to Ad'djson to
know if Christianity were trlfe.
With an anecdote of Dr. Bablng-
ton, an Irishman by birth, and one
of the most faultless of men, we
must close. He told the stdry of
an Irish gentleman, for whom he
pi escribed an emetic, expostulating
seriously with him about it. "My
dear doctor," said ho, "it is of ,no
use your giving me an emetic; I
tiicd it twice in Dublin, and it would
not stay on my stomach cither
While we aro upon this .subject we
wish to call attention to two matters
in which the major'ty of congrega
tions might easily improve 'their
manners and add to the imprcssive
noss of the services. It is a common
habit, when the audience arc to
stand during the singing of a hymn,
to wait until the first line is begun,
and then rum tue verse by the con-1
fusion of the lising. Again, during
the latter part of the last verse the
clattciing of books into the pewracks
before the close of the song is a
serious interference witli all devo
tional effect, and especially so when
that opportunity is seized for the
putting on of wraps, rubbers, etc.'
No one would do this during the
closing sentences of a prayer; why1
should it be done during the ascrip
tion of praise to God ? Hundreds,)
yea, thousands of Christian people
thus thoughtlessly mar the song
worship in the sanctuary. Musical
An Eastern reporter was sent to
ascertain the tiuth of a rumoFthat a
well-known citizen had goner insane.
That reporter's career ended then
and there, when the paper next
morning had the following para
graph : "There was a report yester
day that something was tho matter
with Mr. Sau'nde'r's head. It is a3
sound as it has always'been. There
is nothing in it."
