WEDNESDAY, APRIL I, 189!.
Has Something to Say About the Two
Hundred New Doctors Who are Turned
Loose on the Country.
Over 200 aew doctors turned loose
upon the country-200 from Atlanta
alone and a big lot from Augusta be
sides. I went down on Monday to
see ou boy graduate. His mother
went, too, for she believes he is a
natural born doctor and can cure any
body of anything whether he has got
it or not. When be comes home she
will get sick just for him to have a
patient. Old Uncle Sam was com
plaining, and she told him to wait
until the doctor came. She has con
fidence in his technical words, all
mixed up with Latin and Greek and
other foreign languages. And then,
there is his diploma, this is in Latin,
it was presented by Col. Hammond
in a Latin speech. I suppose this
dead language is used as a symbol
of the doctor's work. Col. Hammond
spoke in a grave tone of voice. He
-said that the prophet Jeremiah ex
_claimed, "Is there no balm of Gillead
-is there no physician there?" If
he had lived in our day and witness
ed the scene before us, he would not
have asked that question concerning
Atlanta. Here are eighty-six just
made from one college. And he ad
vised them all to emulate St. Luke
whom Paul called the beloved physi
cian. Colonel Hammond knows a
power of Scripture, but he did not
mention King Asa, "who was diseas
ed in his feet and his disease was ex
ceeding great, yet he sought not the
Lord but sought physicians and he
slept with his fathers." Nor did he
mention that "certain woman that
had an issue of blood for twelve years,
and had suffered many things of
many physicians and had spent all
that she had and was nothing better,"
but rather grew worse. Col. Ham
mond is an optimist and looks on the
bright side and encouraged the young
doctors. He looked at the beautiful
bouquets that were sent upon the
stage, and said: "Young gentlemen,
these flowers are very beautiful and
very appropriate for the occasion, but
they are before you. Let your zeal,
your study, your skill, so inspire
your professional life that you can
look back and see the flowers behind
you. Flowers of praise and confi
dence from your patients and your
He then presented the doctors with
'their sheepskins and called each one
by his Latin name, and some of them
were so peculiar and unique they
brought down the house, for Joh
was Johannes, and William was Gu
lielmus, and Ralph Radulphus. It
reminded me of a lawsuit in a justice's
conrt that happened a long time ago
when Mark Blanford who recently re -
signed from the bench of the Supreme'
court, was a devilish young lawyer.
A doctor sued a man for his medical
bill of $15, and the man employed
Mark to fight the case, for he said the
doctor was no account and had dis
srged him. Tbe doctor swore to
his account and M1ark called for his
license or his diploma, and made the
point that no doctor had the right to
practice without one, and he read the
law to the 'squire. And so the old
'squire told the doctor he would have
to show his sheepskin. He said he
had one at home and asked for leave
to go after it. It was six miles to
town and he rode in a hurry, and re
turned all in a sweat of perspiration.
With an air of triumph he handed it
Sover to Mark, and said: "Now what
have you got to say ?" M1ark unroll
ed it and saw it was Latin. The
doctor's name was John Williamson
Head, but the Latin made it Johannes
Gulielmus, filius, Caput. That was
enough for M1ark. He made the
~p6int that it was not a diploma, but
was an old land gratnt that was issued
in old colony times to a man by the
name of Caput. He said he had read
about the Caputs, and one of their
ancestors, whose name was John Se
asti Caput, discovered America,
an hsland gr ant was a bounty
from the king of Spain. The doctor
raved furiously, but MIark stuck to it
that there was no mention in the doc
ument of John William Head-that
Sit was issued to one Johannes Gunliel
mnus, filius, Caput-a very different
ison, and then he asked the doctor
please read the thing to the court.
Icourse the doctor couldn't do it,
rad he lost his case. The old 'squire
~aid he didn't know whether it was a
land grant or a diploma or a patent
for some machine, and if the doctor
couldn't read it he wasnt fitten to use
it. And so I think those eighty-six
doctors had better get Colonel Ham
mond to transalate their diplomas,
and then learn the English by heart.
Professor Lane gave the large audi
ence a rare treat-a combination of
wit and wisdom, that only Charley
Lane can make up. He rested his
manuscript on an hour-glass about
four feet high, and all his serious,
scholarly thoughts were there, but
ever and anon he stepped to the front
and illustrated his wisdom with hu
morous anecdotes that kept his hear
ers' eyes open, and their mouths, too.
He was hard down upon patent med
idines, and told how Tacob Straus
got up a nostrum and hired a fellow
to certlfy: '-This is to certify that I
lost one of my eyes and two of my
legs in the late war, and after using
six bottles of Yacob Straus's medicine
my blind eye come again, and so did
my legs." Openheimer had a drug
store, too, and a patent medicine,
and when he sawv the certificate
that Straus had gotten up, he
hired a fellowv to certify some, too.
"I certify that I was unfortunately
born without a liver or lights, and
suffered untold miseries until 1 took
four bottles of Openheimier's medi
cine, and now I have as good a liver
as anybody and electrie lights."
Professor Lane advised the doctors
to use common sense in their practice,
and said it was not called commion
sense because it was common, but be
cause it was comm ronly needed.
Then we had a beautiful valedicto
ry by Dr. Path, and the presentation
of medals by Rev. Dr. Anderson, and
last of all the boys called Dr. Johnston,
and then the benediction closed the
en+erting-exarcies. I was rumi
nating about these doctors; how many
would succeeed and how many
wouldn't: how many would take to
drink and go to bad ? How nianv
would drift awav from parental moor
ings and become agnostics or seep
tics or infidels? I thought how
much depended on their skil and
kindness, and how the loves and
hopes of fathers and mothers was cen
tered in what the dochr could do for
the child or some loved member of
the family. They say that d< -tors get
hardened to suffering. May'.e they
do, but they ought not to. If I was
a doctor I would make a show of ten
derness and sympathy, whether I felt
it or not. It goes a long ways with
the sick and the suffering, and with
How much depends on the doctor's
skill in saving life can never be known,
but a friend of mine in New Yoik
told me that a very eminent surgeon
said to him some years ago, "I am
responsible for Grover Cleveland's
election. If it had not been for me
he would have been defeated. That
man Burchard, who made the speech
about "Rum, Romanism, and Rebel
lion," was about to die from kidney
disease. He sent for me as a last re
sort. I cut him open in the back and
took his old Republican kidney out
and cleaned it and put it back again
and sewed him up, and he got well
and made that speech that drove the
Roman Catholics away from Blaine
and elected Cleveland. Don't you
see that if 1 had made a mistake in
my diagnosis, or a miscut with my
knife, Burchard would have died and
Grover would have got left. Eh?"
And there was that poor man Gar
field, the president, whom the doctors
killed. An eminent surgeon told me
that he was probed to death. They
hunted for the ball for three days,
and bored new holes with their probes
until he was lacerated all through,
and for no good. He said that pis
tol balls did no harm to stay in q
man, that they became incisted, and
it was better to let them alone than
probe for them, and that the present
practice in London and Paris was
never to probe, but let nature go to
work at once to heal the wound. Gar
field would probably have lived if
they hadn't probed him, and if he had
lived Harrison wouldn't have been
president, don't you see? But we
can't get along without the doctors.
They are our comfort and our securi
tv byv day and by night. They are
our hope and our trust in time of af
fliction and peril. Then hurrah for
the new doctors. May they live long
and prosper. It is a long ways to the
goal of their ambition, but they must
have patience if they would have pa

A Little Errand for God.
Helen stood on the door-step with
a very tinv basket in her hand, when
her father ~drove up and said,
"I am glad you are all ready to go
out, dear; I came to take you to Mrs.
Lee's park to see the new deer."
"Oh, thank you, papa; but I can't
go just this time. The deer will keep,
and we can go to-morrow. I have a
very particular errand to do now,"
said the little girl.
"What is it, dear ?" asked the
"Oh, it is to carry this somewhere,"
and she held up the small basket.
"Who is the errand for, dear ?"
"For my own self, papa; but-oh,
no; I guess not; it's a little errand
for God, papa."
"Well, I will not binder you, my
little dear," said the good father ten
derly. "Can I help you any ?"
"No, sir. I was going to carry my
big orange, that I saved from dessert,
to old Peter."
"Is old Peter sick ?"
"No, I hope not; but he never has1
anything nice; and I thought that an
orange would look so beautiful and
make him so happ.y! Don't yo u
think poor well folks ought to ba
comforted sometimes as well as poor
sick folks, papa ?"
"Yes, my dear; and I think we of
ten forget them until sickness or
starvation come. You are right;
this is a little errand for (God. Get
into the buggy, and I will drive you
to old Peter's, and wait till you have
done the errand, and then show you
the decr. Have you a pin, Helen ?"
"Yes, papa; here is one."
"Well, here is a five-dollar bill for
you to fix on the skin of the orange.
This will pay old Peter's rent for four
weeks, and perhaps this wvill be a lit

The Athens. Ga., Banner is respon
sible for the following exposition of
the valuable seerets connected with
the Alliance. In an interview with a
proiinent Alliancemtu in that coun
IV, lie admitted to the Banner man
the correctness of the report, except
that the full number of boards were
not used on the distinguished candi
date for Alliance honors.
Gen. Gordon is now a full fledged
Allianceman, and will hereafter be
made to toe the mark, and address
Livingston, Macune, and Harry BrownI
as "brother." The initiation of this
distinguished gentleman went through
without a jostle, and was witnessed
by a large and enthusiastic audience
At the risk of being shot for expos
ing the secrets of our order, I will give
the Banner a full report of the imn
pressive ceremony that snatched Gen
eral Gordon from the clutches of the:
politicians and made him an humble
disciple of the plow.
The candidate was escorted into the!
ante room of the Allianceinen by a
body guard of farmers. He mani-f
fested some nervousness when his
conductors demanded that he parti
ally disrobe and submit to the ordeal
of being curried off with a corn cob
and rubbed down with a bundle of
fodder; the reason for this phantom
agricultural bath being that it was
necessary to cleanse his person from
the contaminating effects of too close
a contact with Atlanta politicians. Jef
fersonian Democrats, Independents
and other unclean elements, and that
he might enter the realms of agri
cultural bliss. He was then arrayed
in a pair of copperas pants, upheld
by one suspender, and a hickory shirt,
wool hat, and brogan shoes. The Al
liance (his guide explained) was no
respecter of persons, and every mem
ber must be on an equal footing.
Three raps were given on the lodge
room door, and a sepulchral voice
from within demanded:
"Who comes there ?"
"A poor penitent who is graveling
in darkness, and asks that the light of
the Alliance be turned upon bhim,"
was the reply.
"Is the candidate a tiller of the
soil ?' was the next query from with
"He says he has always been the
best friend the farmers of Georgia
ever had," was the e'asive response.
"See if there are any corns in his
hands or cockle-burrs in his hair?" was
"The seeker of light says he is only
a farmer by proxy, and the corns are
in the hands of the men who work his
land," was the response.
"Does the candidate ask admittance
into our order of his own volition, and
is he prepared to pass through the or
deal of initiation ?"
"He does and he is," was the reply
"Let the candidate then remain in
darkness until his eves are prepared
to receive the great light that the Al
liance will turn upon him and he can
be admitted into our sacred precints,"
was the next order.
The eyes of the applicant for Alli
ance knowledge were bandaged with
a second-hand guano sack, the door
of the lodge room thrown open, and
Georgia's ex-Governor and United
States Senator, for the first time in
his life, found himself in the inner
sanctuary of the farmers' lair. He
was marched three times around the
room, while the memibers welcome d
''While the lamp holas out to burn,
The vilest sinner umyv ret~urn.
With a "gee" and "haw" the candi
date was escorted to the Grand Ty
coon, who used as a chair of state the
small end of a bale of cotton.
"Our would-be .brother, your hu.
miiating entry into this roomt teaches
you a useful lesson. A few minutes
ago you camne to us reeking with the
odor of the politician, and arrayed ini
the paraphernalia of a great man. You
were stripped of your tine appar-l,
which means that you must also leave
behind you in your future communi
cations vith farmers your worldly dig
nitv-, or the Alliance will strip you of
your honors, as easily as it did of your
tailor-made garments. All men (ex
cept the nigger) are free and equal.
"The odious bandage that obscured
your vision is a necessary attachmentf
to the farm; and while it teaches an
Allinceman that lie must not expect
his pathway through life to be sprink
led with attar of roses, will be a spec
ial reminder to you of the oifensive
manner that you sp~oke of our leaders
and friends during your recent cam
paign. The conductor will now con
vey the candidate to the High anid
Mighty Hister for further instruction,
while the brethren will p~lease sing:
'On Jordan's stormy banks I stand."'
The H. and M. Hister wvas squat
ting b~etween the handles of a plowv
stock. Without further ado the can
didate had an iron hook fastened in
the seat of his pants, to which a rope
was attached and thrown over a beam
above. With a steady p~ull by two
sinewy A lliancemen the distinguished
gentleman was soon dangling in the
air, with hands and feet vainly clutch
ing at the floor.
"Now hold the candidate in that
position, where he can better appre
ciate the beautiful lessons inculcated
by the Alliance," remarked the G. and
M. H. "It is needless for the parti
ally initiated brother to longer clutch
at the floor. He has already had se
experience at resigning, and the wis
est thing he can do is to put into
practice that virtue and be resigned
to the position we have placed him in,
and not postpone this matter until be
gets to Washington again.
"That hook," the High Histes ex
plainedl, "illustrates the lir~m hold the.
Farmers' Alliance has on mankind.
Your struggles in the air showvs the
folly of a candidate trin g to gain his
equilibrium while in the maighity

our political power to elevate or lower

The Supreme Spanker sat upon a

relol(ved froin the candidate's eyes,

The seeker after light was then led
up to a barrel, and in a twiniling
stretched over it.
"Bring forth the sub-treasury plank,"
commanded the Supreme Spanker,
"and convince the new brother that
it is not a rotten one, but made of
good, sound timber. Let the High
Executioner do his duty like a good
and true Alliance man, while we will
all sing, 'Once I was blind, but now I
Forty times that plank rose in the
air and came down with a mighty
thum p, before the writthing victim
was released and carried before the
Supreme Spanker again, to have the
lesson he had just received explained.
"You have passed through one of
the most beautiful and edifying chap
ters in the Alliance mode of initia
tion. You have publicly asserted
that we have only one plank in our
platform and that a rotten one. I
feel assured that you are now prepar
ed to correct this statement, and as
sert that our sub-treasury plank is
one of the soundest you ever felt. We
have several other planks, as we can
prove to your satisfaction if so desired.
Oh! you say you are satisfied! Well,
be careful in the future how you
speak slurringly of something you
know nothing about. Now carry the
candidate, Brother conductor, for
other useful lessons, and while he is
on the move let the members sing:
'This is the way I long have sought."'
The Great Drencher had on the
table before him three black feathers
and a goblet half filled with what ap
peared to be old Bourbon.
"After his long fatiguing pilgrim
age our brother is doubtless in need
of rest and refreshments. Place a
chair that be may be seated."
This was done, but by some slight
of-hand the candidate made a miss,
and landed upon the floor.
"My unfortunate brother, you have
now learned the uncertainty of politi
cal campaigns. Just as a man thinks
he has found a nice, comfortable seat,
the Alliance slips it from beneath him,
and painful indeed is his disappoint
ment. I spoke just now of refresh
ments, and had prepared a nice mess
of corn for you; but I now discover
in your recent speech you made be
fore the Alliance convention, that you
have already eaten all the sub-treas
ury crow except a few tail feathers.
But here is a glass of Jeffersonian
Democracy, according to the Epistle
of Romans, that you were so partial
to a short time since. This is the
last of the cask and please swallow
the same. Well if you hesitate, I
have to order the grand executioner,
to show you another one of the planks
in our platform. Ah, you find that
the liquid is eneased in glass so that
it will not wet your parched lips.
That, my brother, is Jeffersonian
Democracy. It is very nice to look
upon, but like Dead Sea fruit, is
tasteless. This shows you that to de
pend on other classes than the Alli
ance and the organized Demnocrac)
for ofhice and honor is to partake of a
This, my newly-made brother, ends
the first degree in the Farmers' Alli
ance. I trust the great beautiful
truths you have seen illustrated to
day will make a lasting impression
on your mind. The brethren will
now'join hands and wvhile they march
around the newv member sing: 'Once
I was lost, but now I am found.'"
