PLUTOCRAT'S BRIDE FOR
Mrs. August Belmont, Jr.,
chorus 'girl wife of New York
multi-millionaire's son, who is
said to have deserted her after a
three days' honeymoon. She was
Elsie Lindner, known on the
stage as Elsie or Ethel Lorraine.
Sher-I dreamed last night that
you had bought me a hatfor a
present. He Well, that's the
t first "dream of a hat" you ever
had that didn't cost me money.
OUR DEBT TO DOCTORS
If Dr. Friedman has really dis
covered a cure for tuberculosis
humanity can be thankful for the
fact that the discovery was made
by a regular physician, instead of
by somebody who will make a
patent medicine out of it.
When a regular physician
makes a discovery that is valuable
to humanity he practically gives
his discovery to humanity, put
ting it within the reach of all.
And he thinks more of the fame
and glory of what he has done for
humanity than he does of the dol
lars that might be in it for him.
Manyof the so-called patent
medicines are fakes, and human
ity is better off without them
than with them, but such discov
eries" as vaccine, the anti-toxin for
diphtheria and cures for tubercu
losis and cancer if they are
really discovered should not be
held back for the profit of an in
clividuaU In fact, no government should
issue a patent on any .such cure,
even if the discoverer wanted one.
It would be far better for the gov
ernment to give the discoverer a
fortune and hand the discovery
free to the world.
The regular physician doesn't
get either cred t or thanks for
what he does fcrliumanity; and
the principal reason is that he
doesn't advertise,, while the
quacks do. '
The quacks spend, millions for
advertising, and the advertising
mediums shut their eyes and
don't expose fakes because they
get part oi the swag.
