The. difference is treatment by New
York and. Montreal of Dr. Friedmann,
claimant of a cure for tuberculosis, is
Club in. hand, our American med
ical societies greeted' Friedmann and
compelled him to bore a hole through
their red tape for his demonstrations.
No American doctor has come any
where near a cure for tuberculosis;
hence, in their opinion, Friedmann
must be a fraud. Friedmann hadn't
joined any American medical associa
tion; hence, he must be -welcomed
with a degree of suspicion that
amounted to rank insult.
But the treatment accorded Fried
mann by the Canadian medics was
the reverse. The Royal Edward In
stitute threw open its doors, and en
abled Friedmann to make a-half-hundred
demonstrations, first thing.
Their idea "was that if there is the
slightest chance thaf this ;German
doctor has a cure for the dread,
scourge, ethics, formalities and jeal
ousies must1 not for a -minute delay
development of that chance.
The Canadians have treated Dr.
Friedmann as a possible benefactor
of mankind. Those New Yorkers have,
treated him as a -lot of Congo sav
ages would treat a white 'man who
offered them quinine for their, fevers.
It makes no difference 'whether-Dr.
Friedmann has or'has'not discovered
all that he claims, theattitude of the
New York County- Medical Society,
especially, has been that- of a dbg in
the manger, a mighty small and yel;
low dog, at that.

This time indicator on a medicine -bottle
is' a convenient thing to have
so. that the hour.when the next dose
is to be taken can be known. A .
small-strip of paper is marked with,
figures from 1 to 12 and posted
around the neck of the bottle so'that
the 'figures will plainly show the
hours and half hours. A pin is then
pressed into the; cork of the hottle.
"When a dose of medicine is given
the time for the next dose is marked
by the adjustment of the pin in the
cork over the proper figure. In cases
where different kinds, of medicine are
given at i different hours a series of
bottles equipped with.- these -markers
is a great convenience in the sick
