"Tell flie the worst."
"There ain't no worst, Em'ly; it's all
best," beamed the bride of two days.

of her brow. The cheerful philosophy

"I thought 'twould a' been real nice
to married a genius," ventured Miss
"A genius is a prenuptial ornament

phatically. "He don't have no wearin'

was alway wrltin' literchoor, an'
namln' himself 'Sidney Biggers the

was similar to him, an' when he says
they was I told him I thought there'd
been a-plenty of that kind. No, Emily,

of "Rest for the Weary" floated out
upon the air. Minerva's quick eye

This Is a story told by a physician
living In a large western city of a
problem that suddenly confronted him
and of how he interpreted the
ethics of his profession and acted on
"I was roused one night," he said,
"by a telephone call. An unfamiliar
voice asked me if I could attend a
man who had been injured. I an
swered that I could if the case was
urgent, but before I could ask who was
calling, the speaker answered: 'All
right, doctor, I'll call, at your house in
ten minutes with a carriage.'
"Almost before I had time to dress,
the doorbell rang. I unlocked the
door, and a man, wearing a long ul
ster, a dark hat and a pair of colored
"'Doctor,' he said, 'before we start
I want to make a request. This case,
as I told you, is urgent. But before
we start, I must have your assurance
that you will treat this visit as a con
fidential mission. I can't say any
more, except to add that you're run
ning no risk of any kind in helping
me. And you can name your own
"There was nothing about the man's
appearance that appeared suspicious.
He was quiet and self-possessed
there wasn't a trace of nervousness
about him, and he was well dressed.
The request was somewhat unusual,
but, after all, nearly everything that
we learn professionally is held in the
strictest confidence without any defi
nite understandings to that effect, so
I thought there was no reason for re
fusing to make the agreement.
"I took my hat and we started. The
carriage, I noticed, was a closed one.
We got in, the man turned on a small
electric light and then drew the blinds
over the windows.
" 'Doctor,' he said, 'I'm going to ask
you to take this trip without knowing
where "you're going. I'll assure you it's
all right. I want you to blindfold
yourself before we leave the carriage,
until we get inside the house.'
"Well, I didn't like the looks of this,
but I was in and I didn't like to back
out. Of course I wasn't at all afraid
for my own safety. By the time the
carriage stopped I didn't have the least
idea what part of town we were in
we had made so many turns. I put on
the blindfold, as my visitor requested,
and we went up some steps and Into a
"Upstairs, I found my patient. He
had been shot twice. Revolver bullets,
they were. The wounds weren't dan
gerous, but they were painful because
they had not beep, treated earlier.
"I dressed them, Jpld the woman
who was there what sort of care the
patient ought to have, and then told
them that I'd have to see the man at
least two or three times more before
I could answer for his safe recovery.
"The map with the dark glasses
quietly assented o this, but insisted
that he should bring me at night, as
he had that time. I agreed.
'The next morning the papers told
of a robbery, ip which a householder
had been wounded, after shooting one
of the burglars, who succeeded in es
caping. All the facts indicated' that
my patient of the night before was
the burglar who had been shot. I felt
sure I could locate the house. The
householder recovered quickly.
"The question stared at me: Did the
ethics of the medical profession allow
me to go to the police and tell them
what I knew, or did my promise bind
me to secrecy? J. thought it over all
day and finally decided that I had no
right to say anything about the mat
ter. I made three more trips in the
same manner ang finally decided that
the man would get along without any
more calls. All this time J watched
the papers, but 00 trace was fpund of
the burglars. When I made my last
visit I told the man who bad first
called on me that my fee would be
$25. He took from a large roll two
$100 bills and handed them to me
without a word. He drove me home
and that was the last I ever saw of
either of them.
"That was a good many years ago,
but I've often wondered whether I did
right in not violating that man's con
fidence." "I don't think you did," said a mem
ber of the group ."The medical pro
fession has no right to shield a crimi
nal. Women and children should be
given the greatest protection we can
give them the same as on a vessel
at sea but no word given a criminal
"But suppose it had turned put that
the man was not jthe burglar in ques
tion. I believe he was, but it might
have been otherwise ?"
"That's true," said a third. "It was
all right to keep your promise so long
as you had no acfual knowledge that
the man was a criminal. "Where you
made your mistake was in making
such a ridiculous agreement Jn the
"And let a man, dangerously in
jured, suffer?" asked the first speaker.
"Remember, when I first agreed to
secrecy the case had no particularly
suspicious appearance. I could cite
a dozen different circumstances under
which a serious accident might happen
and which the persons connected with
would, with a perfect right, go to great
lengths to keep secret. So could
either of you."
