MEDICAL PROGRESS IN KENTUCKY
A telegram from Richmond, Ky to
the Cincinnati Times-Star savs that Dr.
Philip Roberts, one of the oldest pliyai
cians in that section, has been notified
by the Secretary of the State Board of
Health that unless he desists at once
lrom misrepresenting the smallpox epi
demic he will bo called upon by the
board to show cause why his license
should not be revoked. Dr. Roberts
claims the disease to be "elephant itch,"
Why does not the Board of Health act
upon the advice given in the admirable
circular published a few weeks ago, and
"deal gently but firmly" with medical re
calcitrants, or kickers, precisely as it does
with the bull-headed common folk who
eniil at its decrees ? We have very little
rjspect for a man who will speak dispar
agingly of an epidemic; and there is al
together too much "license" in a com
munity where such an oQense can be
committed. But what can bo done?
Excellent citizens sometimes oflbnd in
this way. The Reverend Sydney Smith
declares that ho once heard a man speak
disrespectfully of the equator. The truth
13, every medical man ought to be a phil
osopher, whether he sits on a board of
health or not. When a doctor has an
epidemic to deal with, he has an elephant
on his hands and naturally itches to get
it off. But it is hardly necessary to make
this sort of an issue in State politics.
Our smallpox epidemic wo are glad to
eay has at last been successfully stamped
out, but the kinepox epidemic still pre
vails "to a certain degree of extent" and
we are all of us heartily glad that mat
ters are no worse. While our smallpox
epidemic was comparatively a small
affair, we do not agree with those who
seemingly suggest that "one swallow does
not make a summer." This may be;
but it is a very poor case of smallpox that
won't make an epidemic. When Mr
Lincoln had it, ho cheerfully remarked,
as he thought of the great quadriennial
rush : "I am now in a position to give
something to every person that calls."

Gen. Fitzhugh Leo at Frankfort the
other night, was ono of Morgan's rough
riders during the civil war. There was
no bolder or more dashing horsemen
than he and ho might have served as a
prototype of d'Artignan in tho "Three
Guardsmen." Some years ago as Gen,
Bjsil Duke sat in hi) oflico a gentleman
came in garbed as a Catholic clergyman.
He addressed Gen. Duke and asked if ho
remembered him. Tho General looked
at him and, though there was something
familiar about his visitor, he could not
locate him. They talked for awhilo and
the caller recounted several anecdoteB of
past times which showed ho was on rap
port with tho affairs of tho war. Finally
Gen. Duke stared at the visitor, and then
recognizing him all of a sudden, said:
"Why, it's Tom Major! But what ato
you doing in clerical dress?"
Ho could not realize tho fact that the
dashing cavalryman had become a ser
vant of tho Lord, and his astonishment at
tho recognkion was ludicrous. Father
Major is now one of tho most popular
clergymen in tho State, and wherever he
goes lie is as warmly welcomed by tho
Protestants as by those of his own faith.
