OB NKBICAIi AMMSCIATIOlf.
As the last regular monthly meet
ing of the Lincoln county Medical
Association, vory interesting debsto
on the mind was indulged in. Dr.
Ilutt defended tho principal proposi
tions of his essay, as road t tho pre
cccding meeting, which were, sub
stantially, that mind la the result of
tho molecular action oflho brain and
that tiorve forco generates mind forco.
In support of these views and the ar
guments ho made, he adduced tho
facts brought to light by tho aid of
uecroscopy, as well as the opinion
and authority of eminent physlolo
gists, particularly of tho German
school of tho present day. Dr.
Waddy denied tho propositions as
stated, and contended thut tho mind
is immaterial, the brain material, and
that a material eauso cannot produce
an immaterial efloct. That tho brain
is llio instrument, and not tlio creator,
of the mind. Ho brought forward a
strong mats of reasoning, bnscd ou
physiology, and quoted eminent au
thority, both medical and theological.
Dr. Ilutt rejoined. The discussion
was exceedingly inlet ostiug, and
showed profound research and lcai n
ing on tho part of tho disputants.
Hut few of tho members were pros
ctit, and wo expressed fears that the
Atsoclatiou was waning In interest.
Our homo physicians, howover, ray
that they nro determined to keep the
organization up (or their own in
structlou, even if those members at a
distance full to attend ; and to this cud
they concluded to meet every Sat
urday evening. Tho regular monthly
meeting will bo held ou the 'J7th,
and it is hoped that tho physi
cians nil over tho county will attend
and manliest tho same interest in the
association that characterized its
birth. Its importance cannot bo
questioned ; its results cannot provo
olhcrwiso than instructive ; and this
in connection with tho engendering
of a friendly and social feeling among
tho fraternity, should certainly bo nn
inducement. At tho next regular
mcoting, a proposition to make gut
urday evening of each week the regu
lar day, will bo submitted. All tho
members aro requested to bo in at
tendance. It is believed that this will
prove more satisfactory than the
monthly afternoon mcotiugs. Phy
sicians (roni a distance can leave homo
Saturday afternoon, attend tho even
ing meeting, Imvo the hospitalities of
the homo members extended them for
tho night, and roturn tho following
morning without losing much time
from their practice. By all means,
every member should bo in attend
ance at tho noxt meeting to consider
