A Class of Thirtj-EIght I' pea Which
Diplomas Were coaferred Before
a Larje Audience.
Tbe commencement exercisee ol the
Memphia Hospital Medical College,
held at the Central Baptist church last
evening, were witnessed by eeveral
hundred of thefriendao! the instita

ceat in the ample hall. The exercisee
were opentd with prayer by tbe Rev.
Eugene Daniel, and interepereed with
instrumental and vocal a lections.
Charles Shipp of Mississippi delivered
the salutatory a very graceful and
eloquent eeeay. Jadge Hammond's
addreea was, aa usual, happy, and was
frequently ittarrupted by app'auee.
The following is a synopsis of hia ad

that you are well prepared to entr

To Mr, Eugene' A. Neely of Missis
sippi fell the first honors of his class.
He dolivered the valedictory.
Dr. F. L. Sim of the faculty delivered
an admirable charge to the graduttw,
ot which the following is a synopsis:
4. bare to tbe Uraduallna; Class.
Ladies and Gentlemen Through
the courtesy of my colleagues of the
faculty, I have the honor to be their
representative on this occasion, and as
such to extend to you their greetings,
with our warmest thanks for the en
couragement of your presence. Ftom
the array of gentlemen to whom we
have presented diploma; this evening
you may imagine that too many per
sons are being educated for the med
ical profeision. This may be true,
but when it is remembered that with
some a medical education is sought
only as an accomplishment, and that
a large number of others, for various
moons, early abandon the practice, it
would appear that the entire number
admitted to the ranks will hardly ex
ceed the gtowing demands of the
country. The mere fact, however,
that we are educating an increasing
number each year in this city, I
dies cot imply that we are
adding to the ordinary, general
supply, as if these gentlemen had cot
found the required facilities for prose
cuting their studies in Memphis they
would have gone tbewhere. StatiHtics
show that the number of medirnl
.students admitted to the profession in
the United States during ti e last fsur
years has annually decreased. There
were graduated in the spring of 1882,
4555; 1883, 4215; 1S84, 4101; 1885,
It has brig been tbe custom of insti
tutions devoted to medical education
for the faculty lo select some one cf
their number to deliver wba', is termed'
the "charge to the graduating class."
Iu parting with young men, alter hav
ing drilled tbera for months in the art
and science of medicine, certainly
nothing could be more appropriate
than a few thoughtiul admonitions
le'gons ga'.hered from long experience
in tbe perplexities of tbe profession
they are about to enter. Drawn as is
loch information, from retrospective
view of professional life, it ie rendered'
doubly appreciaVe when content
p'uted in connection with the self
sacrificing character of the vocation
and tbe grave responsibilities it in
volves. These tuung men have
studied medicine the required length
of time, have passed a satisfactory ex
amination ana, haviuK received their
diplomas, are now entitled to recogni
tion by the members of the profession
as fellow-practitioners. Bu gentle
men of the graduating tlaae, you will
be expected to continue your studies.
Tbe mere fact that you have graduated
does not, strictly speaking, entitle you
to practice medicine unlees with it
is coupled the determination to
continue -four investigations. Your
diplomas guarantee that joa
have rc altered the branches that
are fundamental to a sound medical
education; that you have traversed
tbe ordinary curriculum ot medical
institutions; that thereby you at
grounded in the essential elements of
the science, and that by perseverance
in reading, observation, reflection and
comparison, you are prepared to ap
preciate Nature's lessons at tte bed
side. Your diploma gives the com
munity no assurances for the future.
Your alma mater is responsible alone
for yoar psst history and your present
proficiency. The domain of medicine
ie to vatt, its interests and relations to
far-reaching and important, that it
will be diflicuit for you, in your early
professional career, to comprehend ils
immensity. The broad field, how
ever, is before you. Should you suo
cessfully cultivate it you will do honor
to tbe calling of your choice and
prove a blessing to your nice, but
faltering you may, with diplomas in
your bands, become a curse
t3 the community in which you
locate. Resolve, therefore, to
continue throughout your en
tire profesalonal lite, the studious
habits you have here acquired; they
are cardinal, not alone to perfect your
selves in the studies over which you
have just passed, but that you may, aa
near as possible, hold pace with tbe
rapid advances of the science. For
even with contttnt application it is
practically impossible for any one,
however gifted or active be may be, to
keep fully convert ant with the hourly
contributions to medical literature.
Indeed, medicine hat, within the last
few decades, grown to auch propor
tions aa to merit recognition as tbe
most exacting of a II sciences.
Success in the professional life is
rarely miraculous in character; on
the contrary, it is usually tbe result of
plodding industry and careful, earnest
observation. The young men of the
profession are often called upon first,
to do the practice of those who are
unable to remunerate them for their
services, and if they fill the lower
walks of the profession creditably
they gradually rise t the higher, by
increasing reputation for ability and
industry. Boerhave said, "the pcor
were the best patients, for God was
their fay master." This is cer
tainly a gracious view of an
often irksome duty; but one that
is well calculated to inspire faithful
ness and tnconrge the undertaking of
even loathsome tasks; one that lias
without doubt furnished oil for the
lamp in many rf the darkeit hours cf
my professional career. Aside, how
ever, from the gratuitous aspect of
practice for the poor, it la with this
class more than any other that tbe
young practitioner derives the exped
ience that enables him better to main
tain himself with more desirable cli
entage in a pecuniary eense, when
such shall demand his services.
I would charge jon, gentlemen, I o
maintain a high tttndard of mediuil
ethics in the profession you represent.
Physicians bave as a class, like every
ether class of men, what baa become
to them a co Ie of manners a system
of medical ethics. You can no more
violate these regulations with impunity
than you can trample upon tbe
rules of society. It is true that there
are some dissensions in the ranks of
tbe profession upon the subject of
ethics, but only in regard to certain
modifications, and tbe means adopted
in bringing these about. All appre
ciate a code. '
I wculd urge upon you the desira
bility of maintaining the present kd
utntion of the profession for loyalty
and heroism. Medicine bai a noble
army of martyrs, embalmed in the
perpetuil remembrance of the broth
erhoxl. Tbe deeds of heroism per
formed by the physician may not have
elicited the enthusiastic admiration
accorded to the warrior, yet they no
less evidence his noble qualities of
head and heart. Doctors fice the
stealthy U in the silent bedchamber,
in the infectious atmosphere of
the hospital and in the lav
ishing epidemic of the city. Med
ical history is full of instances
cf eell-abnefu'ion upon tbe part o! its
followers, two of which I will here
filace on record. When, during the
ats war, the Alabama was hopelessly
disabled by the well direct ad shots of
the Kearsarge, the gallant Surgeon
Lewellin got bis wounded men into
the only two boat left, but, though
urged t? do eo, refused to enter either,
lest by overloading the safety of his
patients might be imperiled, and went
down with tbe ill ftted ship to suduVi
death, but tj an immortal memory.
An elderly physician of our neigh
boring ctate, Arkansas, fell in an at
tack of apoplexy when entering the
apartment of a dangerously ill pa
tient. His son, a physician, an alum,
nus of this institution, was hurriedly
summoned, to find the father lying
upon the floor where be had fallen,
but sufficiently recovered to urge him
first to save, if possible, the patient.
Tbe father lived just long enough to
learn that the efiort, in ooedience to
his command, had proven successful.
During the prevalence of tbe dread
ful scourge of 1878, in this city, our
medical director was compelled io ask
the profession abroad to fill up the
decimettd ranks of our over-worked
home force, but in doing so it was ex
pected that those who were protected,
ny rea-on of having had yellow
fever, would alone respond to
tbe call. The result, however,
proved that doctors from all parts oi the
country, regardless of such protection,
BDDeared to hail with delight tbe priv
ilege of risking their lives in minister
ing to the wants of their feilo men
in distress. .
Finally, gentlemen, permit me tj
say that you are bound by every sa
cred and morel obligation to devote
vour best energies to your profession.
Yoh ehou'd regard human life in all
conditions and aspects as eacred. You
will c f en witness occurrences calcu
lated to touch tbe deepest and most
delicately strung cords of the human
heart fobs of agony and iighs cf an
guish bursting from broken hearts.
Fair hopes and confiding affections
scattered to the ever changing winds
by the freezing breath of the destroyer
are among the melancholy associations
that strew themselvee in somber per
spective along the physician's path,
And now I will say the vale-dictum,
the good bye word. But I cannot let

you bave done your level beat.

Mr. Isaac O. Chapman, druggist,

fer the ran ten years sold several
gross of Dr. William Hall's Bahu'd for
tbe Lungs. I can say of it what I
cannot say of any otner medicine, 1
have never beard a customer speak of
it but to praise its virtues in the high
est manner. I bave recommended it
in a great- runny cases of whopping
cough, with the happiest effects. I
have used it in my own family for
many years; in fact, always have a
bottle in the medicine closet ready for

THE MSII LIBRARY.
INSTRUMENT FILED WHICH
Fate for All Time-A School
Building to Be Erected oa
In the register's office to-niorrow, an
instrument will be filed which will
settle the fate of the Nana library
scheme for all time. About three
vears ago Mr. Job M. Kaab of New
York proposed to give Memphis
$23,000 worth of books, if she would
provide a lot and building worth
$50,000. The lot was easily found, by
means of the following bill, which wai
approved In December, ltS2:
Whibkas, The corporate authori
ties cf tbe city ot Memphis, in tha
Stats of Tenneeeee, bave recently con
veyed to the government of the
United Btatee, by deed, in fee simple
and witboat charge, a large and val
uable lot of land tor a aite upon which
to erect al'ostolBceand custom-house
and United States District and Circuit
Court-roona in said city, aud upon
which said building is now being
erected, in lieu of the lot ol land for
merly obtained by the government for
tbe mine pnroose, and the govern
ment of the United States now having
no use for the last mentioned lot of
land for any puttlic use; and
where n , Job M. NaBh of New
York proposes to give the Taxing
Diitrict f jrmerly known as tbe city of
Memphis the sum of $.5,000 to estab
lish a public library in said city, on
condition that said city will furnish a
suitable building for the same, worth
$50,000, there (re
Be it emictsd by the Senu aud
House of Representatives cf the
United Stat s of America, in Congress
assembled, that the lot or parcel of
ground situated on the southeast cor
ner of Jell onion and Third streets in
the city of Memphis, in the First Tax
ing Dittrict of the State tt Tennessee,
now owned by the Government of the
United States, and upoa which it wn i
formerly intended to erect poet
office, custom-house, and United States
District and Circuit Court-rcoms, be
and the same is hereby ceded to the
First Taxing District of Tennessee, to
be held for the use of the Board of
Trustees of said public library and
their successors ; and If the said trus
tees shall find that tbe said lot Is not
suitable for the purfoie of a public
library building, then the same may
be io d and conveyed by theiuid
Tax iug District, and the proceeds of
such sale reinvested in a lot suitable
for such building, which shall be held
in trust as aforesaid ; nnd it the said
Board of Trustees shall (ivl to erect a
suitable building tor a publio library
upon said lot within three y ats from
the passage ol this act, then said lot
shall be held in trust by said Taxing
District for the use anil benefit ol tbe
publio schools ot mid Taxing District.
Approved December 23, 18i2.
A committee ot ladies made a heroic
efloit t raise the $25,000 required for
the building, but abandoned the en
terprise In despair after $16,000 bad
been subscribed. The time fixed in
the bill has expired, and Instead of a
library tbe city will oin have a public
school on the lot. It is not quite
large enough, only about 100 feet
cquare. but vacant uioperty adjoining
could be purchased.
