ONL NATIVE PHYSICIANS ARE TOL.-
RATED IN CHINATOWN.
It la the Chriatimalaed Cbinamcn Was
Cavil In and Allow Themselves to Be
Treavted by Regular Practitioners How
the Chinese Medical Man Acta.
Chinatown had had an unusually large
number of visitors on a recent night, and
the opium and gambling dens were jam
med, when an undersized Chinaman was
thrown out of a doorway into the gutter of
Pell street. He had been in a fight evi
dently, and in the parlance of the English
speaking element, had been "done up." A
policeman took John to the police station
in Elizabeth street. He was in danger of a
collapse and the sergeant sent for an am
bulance. He had been cut in the face and
on the head, and his clothes were Boaked
with blood. In the washroom water was
applied to the wounds until the ambulance
arrived. The surgeon ascertained that
none of the wounds was serious, but that
the Chinaman was suffering most from
the effects of the opium. He started to
dress the cuts, but as John saw the ban
dages he set up a vigorous howling.
"What in thunder is the matter with
you t" the sergeant demanded. "Shut up
that howling or I'll turn the hose down
Me no want Melican docker. Me want
He kicked and yelled so that the surgeon
picked up his baixl.oyes and went away.
"The bloody pigtail thinks somebody
will eat him," a policeman remarked.
"I suppose he thinks we ain't got any
thing to do but wait on him," another
But presently the condition of the China
man changed. His breathing became la
bored, his eyeballs rolled horribly, his legs
and arms twitched convulsively and his
yellow skin took on more ghastly hnes.
"I believe the chink is going to kick." a
"Run down to Mott street and see if you
can get one of the Chinese doctors," the
sergeant ordered. "Hurry, for I'm afraid
he'll die on our hands."
ClUXRSK MEDICAL TREATMENT.
Wet towels were applied to his bead and
be revived partly. Nearly half an hour
elapsed before the policeman returned,
accompanied by a tall, fat and solemn
Chinaman, who was dressed in the
Chinese costume. He paid no attention to
the sergeant or the other policeman, but
went straight to the patient, looked in his
face, tore off the wet towels and examined
the cuts. His Jong loose sleeves fell back
and disclosed a pair of skinny, wrinkled
bands, with liony fingers and long finger
nails. It seemed strange that such hands
should belong to so fat a body. The pa
tient watched him without uttering a
word, and after the doctor had completed
his examination he turned to the sergeant
and said: "He much sick; too much hit
pipe. Me make him well."
Then the doctor began to talk to the pa
tient in Chinese, and the sergeant had
a shrewd suspicion that the doctor was
satisfying himself that his fee would be
forthcoming. Evidently the patient's re
plies were satisfactory to him, for he be
gan bandaging the wounds in much the
scinie way that any surgeon would, only
the bandages were of some curious Chi
nese material and were tied in a manner
that would bring discredit upon the young
est medical student. Then he took from
some receptacle hidden in the pockets of
an inside jacket several odd packages on
which were Chinese characters. They con
tained drugs evidently, for he took a little
from each, using his nails as scoops, and
spoke to the patient. The latter stuck out
bis tongue and the doctor dropped the
drugs on it. The doctor then gave him a
swallow of water ami sit down beside him.
The patient seemed to have every confi
dence in the treatment and began to look
better. After a short wait the doctor
spoke to him again, whereupon he arose
and the two went away together.
According to tbeexperiencesof the police
of the Elizabeth street station, in which
precinct all Chinatown is included, only
Christianized Chinamen will ever submit
to treatment by white physicians. When
ever a sick Chinaman is brought to the
station a Chinese doctor has to be sent
INTERVIEWING A CHINESE DOCTOR.
Strangely enough, these doctors are un
known to the police, and on each occasion
they have to rely upon information from
the Chinamen in the streets or stores to
find one. The reporter met equal difficul
ties in seeing one. After calling at half a
dozeu stores in Chinatown and asking a
score of Chinamen in Mott, Pell and Doyers
streets without result, he sought for Wong
Chin Foo, who directed him to Khi Leon,
who runs a Chinese tlrug store at 19 Mott
street. Khi leon. who is very big and
pompous, was measuring out opium so
daintily that it was a pleasure to watch
him. Several assistants were busy doing
up packages of strange looking roots. Khi
!on is one of the tallest Chinamen in New
Vork. He has a round, smooth face, and
he wears a dark silk costume, including a
black Bkull cap. His pigtail is exceed
ingly long, and his nails are long ami yel
low. He was very suspicious when spoken
to. thinking, apparently, that some trap
was being laid for him.
"'Are you a doctor?"
"What for you want to know?"
-1 want to learn something about the
way you practice."
"1 no can tell not h ink. I no talkee welL
Velly busy. Got no time. Call again,
He disappeared behind a screen, and all
efforts to bring him back proved futile.
A Chinese missionary said: "Chinese
doctors have no knowledge of the human
system, and usually work by guess. It is
against the Chinese ethics to dissect a
body, and the Chinaman has a horror of
anybody who uses a knife on a corpse.
Nevertheless the Chinene doctors manage
to work a great many cures."
It is strange that Chinese doctors are al
lowed to practice in New York, where the
law strictly prohibits any person from act
ing as a physician unless be has a medical
certificate and a license from the county
clerk, but if the law were enforced it is
doubtful whether the Chinese would call

Read His Own Obituary.
Mr. Albert Owens is a prominent
young farmer near Winnebago City,
Minn. He spent hundreds of dollars in
endeavoring to recover from nervous
prostration, and a year ago was so low

An obituary of Mr. Owens appeared in
that paper, and was read by him. While
in this condition he began taking Dr.
Miles' Restorative Remedies, and in a
short time was a well man. 8a vs he
never felt belter than now.
