chareed ready for use. All you have to do is to adjust it correctly and turn on the power to the
uroDir degree of strength. It is not like the electric belts, faradic batteries and other contriv
ances you may have seen or used. ELECTRA-VITA does not shock or burn The current is
powerful in its action, but is soothing and pleasant to the nerves. ELECTRA-VITA is

BRADSTREETS SAYS STORM
BENEFITED GESERAL TRAUE
New York, N. Y, Jan. 11. Brad
streets today says:
"There is more life in trade this week.
The widespread cold -wave, accompa
nied by snow and rain, had variable
effects on retail trade, but on the
whole it was beneficial, helping dis
tribution of wearing apparel, shoes and
rubber goods. In addition, the coal trade
was benefited and the winter wheat
crop, hitherto bare, received a fair snow
covering. On the other hand, the west
ern railways felt the retarding effect
of the storm and the coldest weather in
30 years in southern California caused
heavy damage. ... . ,
Building at all cities probably broke
all records last year.
Business failures in the United States
for the week ending January 9 were
378, and compare with 421 in the like
week of 1912. There were 48 failures
in Canada last week.
ELK HERD WILL BE
BROUGHT TO ARIZONA
Phoenix, Ariz., Jan. 11. Eighty elk
are to be trapped in Montana and
shipped to northern Arizona.
The shipment will be made from
Gardener. Mont, about the middle of
February, and they will be received
at a point 40 miles north of TVJnslow,
in the Sitgreaves national forest.
There they will be fed till spring In a
large enclosure. It is believed that
by that time they can be turned out to
search for their own provender.
Because of the difficulty of shipping
full grown elk. the shipment will in
clude only yearlings.
One expense of transporting the elK
to Arizona is to be paid by the Elks
lodges in the state.
The legislature will be asked at the
coming session to enapt a law against
the slaughter of elk. iBy the time the
animals are turned loose a state game
warden will have been appointed and
he will look after them with the as
sistance of deputy wardens in Coco
nino and Navajo counties.
Years ago there were elk in northern
Arizona but they have all been exterminated.

As time goes on, we find patients grow fewer each year.
We'go on hoping for better times,only to encounter worse
ones. Dr. Thomas Dixon in The Medical Record.
Medicine as a livelihood has arrived at the most" critical
period of Its existence. The economic status and outlook
of the profession is nothing if not pitiful The very existence
of the doctor is at stake. Extract om letter sent to
members of the A. M. A. in Illinois by the PubHc Relations
Committee of the Chicago Medical Society. June -S. 191-
"The law we must have . . . These laws must reacli
Into all the relations of life," said Dr. Samuel G. Dixon,
the head of the medical department in Pennsylvania, in a
notable address, in which he also observed that: "Compul
sion, not persuasion, is the key-note of State Medicine."
Dr. Dixon, of course, advanced his plea for restrictive
legislation and autocratic power under the pretext of con
serving the public health. This is the invariable claim put
forward by the political doctors when they desire protective
legislation for their own class, and measures that will give
them increased power over the people.
Other physicians; however, are refreshingly frank and
open in giving their reasons for wanting laws to protect them
legislation which, by taking from the people the power
longer to employ the practitioners of their choice, would com
pel them to go to the protected doctors in whom they had
little or no confidence. Thus, for example, the New York
Herald for November 10, 1912, thus refers to a remarkable
recent confession of a prominent old school doctor:
Progressive poverty Is now advancing upon the physi
cians of the country in an irresistible wave that seems to
be gaining as it moves, according to a statement in the
current number of the Medical Record, written by Dr.
Thomas Dixon of Brooklyn.
In this candid utterance, which reveals the fact that the
public no longer has sufficient faith in the old school physi
cians to employ them. Dr. Dixon makes the following amaz
ingly frank statement:
As time goes on, we find patients grow fewer each year.
We go on hoping for better times, only to er ounter worse
ones. We think that possibly depression in commercial busi
ness Is affecting the situation, but on looking over our books,
the unfortunate fact is demonstrated, whether the times be
good or bad commercially, our business year by year has
been progressively worse.
Further on in the paper Dr. Dixon pleads for some
special organization that shall in some mysterious way se
cure to the doctors a remunerative practice. He does not
believe in State-pensioned doctors, and there is but one other
way in which an unwilling public can be forced to support
physicians in whom the people have little or no faith
namely, by restrictive or monopolistic laws that will take
from the individual the legal right or power longer to em
ploy the practitioner who has cured him after the unsuccess
ful or old school doctors have failed. This is precisely the
legislation which the American Medical Association has
been trying to obtain for years. But the lack of complete
success on the part of the political doctors, notwithstanding
their pernicious activity, suggests to Dr. Dixon the need of
a new society whose sole concern would be the ecdnomic
condition of the doctors, as will be seen by his remarks in
the following lines:
. , -, i-.a--i T.AnA fnv hotter MVMinmic feondi-
xnere is oaimieij' hv vpc . -.- ,
tlons in the profession without an organization whose sole
work shall be devoted to Improving these Conditions. Our
present medical societies cannot do this work, for they are
too much interested in medical research, to have any time
to give to economic conditions.
The above suggests the remarkable letter sent out on
June 28, 1912, by a committee of the Chicago Medical
Society, of which Dr. Charles J. Whalen was the chairman.
In this letter, which was a plea for doctors to get into
politics for the protection and advancement of their interests
through legislative measures, the confession of failure of the
old school doctors, under freedom, when the bedside test is
the court of last resort, is made in the following delightfully
frank, though pathetic and illuminating, utterance:
Medicine as a livelihood has arrived at the most critical
period of its existence. The economic status and outlook
of the profession is nothing if not pitiful. The very ex
istence of the doctor is at stake. Survival of the fittestrls
the issue of the day. Do you not realize that it Is time. Tor
physicians to be up and doing: that by co-operation and
cohesion the profession should enter an earnest and vigorous
protest against all unwarrantable encroachments affecting
economic conditions and circumstances under which -physicians
have to make a. livelihood.
In the same letter Ave are told th.it-
The average income of the doctor in America has been
placed by many competent authorities at about $700 per year.
or $2 per day. Economic conditions here are not as favor
able to-day as they were five, ten. or even twenty sears
ago. The earnings of a large proportion of the profession
are less than that of organized labor.
The above confessions from authoritative sources in the
two strong citadels of Allopathy, New York and Chicago,
reveal the real reason for the tremendously active campaign
on the part of the members of the American Medical Assiy
ciation for national and State healh legislation. It is also
a confession that, under freedom, where the competing prac
titioners have to rely on the bedside test, the old school
doctors cannot retain their foothold and must starve if they
cannot induce the lawmakers to give them protective legisla
tion that will take from the millions the legal right and power
to employ the practitioners who, experience has convinced
them, can cure them. If these confessions mean anything,
they mean that the old school doctors must starve if the
people are to remain free; that their hope of a livelihood is
in taking away, by law, the right of the individual to em
ploy the practitioner of his choice. This is the bold and
If the newer schools, systems and methods of cure were
unsuccessful, there would be no clamor for restrictive legis
lation. It cannot be too often impressed that protective
legislation is never asked for by a class if the competitor is
unsuccessful. Furthermore, if the old school doctors repre
sented an infant industry, there might be some valid reason
advanced for the protective legislation they desire; but they
have had the benefit of priority in position, governmental
recognition, conventional sanction, antiquity, and, indeed,
almost every conceivable outside aid to give them advantage
over their competitors; yet they have failed successfully to
compete with the newer schools, where the bedside test was
the criterion. Hence the cry for restrictive legislation, under
the pretext of protecting the people from themselves; in
reality, for the protection of an unsuccessful privilege-seeking
class by granting it monopoly legislation.
