jent his entire life in this place, ex?pt
the time sp-nt in fitting himself < <
ir his chosen profession. He read to

ammond. He attended the Univer- to
ty of Virginia Mid the University of ca
arylfttid, gradiating in medicine M
0111 the Univerdty of Pennsylvania A>
i 1841. Having formed o partner- Mi
lip with Dr. Hammond, lie began en
le practice of medicine in Sliep- Or
erdstown in April, 1841, whicn he rei
mtinued uninterruptedly up to re<
itliin a few days of Ids death. Dur- to
ig the past couple of years he had fo
radually relinquished the more la- re,
prions part ol i 's work, his son. Dr. to
lien S. Reynolds, taking tlie burden fri
T of bis shoulders. Had Dr. Rev- to
aids lived a couple of month* longer oo
? would have rounded out an even to
fty years of practice in this town th
rid vicinity?a half century of work
?voted to relieving tlie ills of his fel- fe
wmen. w<

Few men have posseted as large a
easure of the esteem and confidence (*'
ud lore of their fellowinen as Dr.
eynolds did. Being engaged for 0,1
rty v<*ar?, as he was, in the work of
dieving the pains of the suffering 8e
nd afllicted. it was hut natural that Vl
e should be regarded with grateful Injection.
But the secret of the ad. V1
iration in which he was field was ' '
at simply that he did good?it was
1 the tenderness ami unfailing gen- ^1
eness of the man, the broad charity
int he exercised, the generous giv. bj
ig and the kindly eicuses for the Si
lilirigs of otiiers, the ever ready help
tat was so freely extended?these f0
ere the ties that bound him so ?<,
osely to the people. An aged tier- j vj

as performed in this section of I *
irginia with the use of chloro ni
>rm was by Or Reynolds. It was 77,
ii March 1st. 1848. and the patient
as an Irish workman at the Vir- jc,
inia Ore Rank. Dr. Taylor had j(j
one to Baltimore and obtained a f0
ljiply of the newly discovered anaes- n)
letie. With the assistance of Dr. fr,
avlor and Dr. Butler. Dr. Reynolds rj.
iccessfully amputated the man's leg. f0
The life of Dr. Reynolds was a fr
lost laborious one. His practice was gn
large one, almost from the begin w
ing. From ever) part of this county c|,
ml Berkeley the calls came, and w
ven in Frederick countv. Virginia, tb
nd the adjoining enmities of Mary- t0
md his services w. re in demand. He ei
I ways traveled on horse-hack, and 7*1
o one knows how many thousands at
f mi'es ne has ridden. His record jv
00k shows that nearly twenty-two
undred times he had been called ai
pon to assist little Grangers into the Iu
orld. and many a one of them has
een named "Reynolds" after the
ood doctor who presided at their adent.
The death of Dr. Reynolds is not h<
nly an atllictiou to his family?it is a 1)
id loss in which the entire comuiu- | ol
ity feels a personal grief. He was ri
> intimately known to all. and so ol
eloved of everyone, that each fami m
r feels as though it has sustained a M
ereavement. In the Providenoe of m
od. Dr. Re\nold* was spared until se
is life work was accomplished?untij
ther shoulders were fitted for the tl
urdenthathe had carried so long, di
'ifteen or twenty years ago. his di
eath would have been a great ca- cl
imity. Now, though men grieve at ol
is death, it is with the knowledge
Pat he had rounded out a life well
pent and that his work was finished,
lis memory will ever be fragrant in the at
omwunity where he lived, aud u
is successful life wfll be an inspire
