Dr. A. Clark responding to the

the rapid and phenomenal develop­

ering the period of tbe last quarter
of a century. He paid the young
men of his profession a splendid
tribute to their zeal and advance^
ideas. "Common Interests of the
Profession" was splendidly respond.

ed to by Rev. F. Bronson. He
spoke of the growing tendency of a
more fraternal feeling among the
men of the different professions as
well as those in the same calling and
urged that such a spirit would lie
come more general. That profes­
sional men, because of their super­
ior knowledge were more saught
after for advice, were looked up to
in a more universal way and should
therefore be more united that great­
er assistance could be given to those
in Deed. Hta «Wre£ n. foil of l"" 8°^
speech was more of a supplication,
given in a most original and hum­
orous strain and praying that "our
pulp may never decay and our
prongs ntver break." Hon. C. M.
Crandall as usual was at his best and
in his toast, "Progress," he pointed
out the need of more study, more
adaptability, more energy and more
interest in common among piofes
sional men.

thought the future was bright and
promising for the still greater de­
velopment of medicine and surgery
and that the growing tendency of
more unity among medical men and
more co-operation from the laity
would tend to better the condition
of all.
As 'ISeen From a Legal Stand­
point" was the subject of the toast
by Mr. C. E. Wilson related many
numerous anecdotes of the legal pro­
fession whioh was immesnely en­
gaged and well reoeived.
Dr. W. J. Dodge responded to
"The Dentist and the Doctor." He
referred to the time when there was
no such a department as dentistry,
when the doctor looked at an aching
tooth and removed it, not even
knowing or caring if it could be
saved. He spoke of the progress
made in his chosen profession dur­
ing the past 20 years and pointed
out that now the doctor paid no
attention to the teeth but sent his
toothaching patients to the dentist
rather than ran the risk of losing
his patren age by extracting a tooth
when nothing was the matter but a
sore tongue.
Mr. W.H. Johnson, theChauncey.
M. Depew. of the West responded to

hi* toast, Worthington's Opper,
tanities," said he felt that our city
had opportunities within her reach
that we could not afford to pass by.
He briefly referred- to the great need
and the splendid opportunity of a
young men's- club and gymnasium
where the- young men could go
evenings and enjoy a few hours in
games, reading, gymnastic, social
intercourse, etc. But a rgeater netd
and greater opportunity within
Worthington's grasp was a first
class, well equipped hospital, where
the sick and injured could be cared
for properly, where the life of the
patient would be more safe, where
trained nurses, clean beds, etc.,
eould be had. He said Worthington
was a beautiful city, with splendid
railroad facilities, a scientific corps
of phyicians, and of good reputation.
That other nearby towns would
patronize such an institution that
patients objected to being taken so
far from home, that it was often
time dangerous, and always expens­
ive and that the results were no
better and perhaps not as well as to
remain at home. That a city hos­
pital would be an immense advant­
age to us in many ways, that every
citizen could help to build it, that
thq various lodges, churches, busi­
ness houses, etc. would be glad to
assist in such a splendid movement
and urged that Worhington now
should reach out after this oppor­
tunity before some of our nearby
towns should do so and closed by
pledging himself to do all in his
power and give as much of his time
and money as he could.
Following his addres Dr C. P.
called upon for his views.
He said he was very glad the mat­
ter of a hospital had been brought
up, as the doctors wanted one and
would give it their hearty support.
We need a general wide open hos­
pital because a private one had op
jection that could not well be over
oome and it would not pay. Since
he had been in Worthington he had
Nnt- at least $1,000 of work out of
"the eity which he believed should
stay right hew f. id if,WQr$Ling*o?^
had had a hospital it would be #1,-'
000 better off. Dr. A. H. Clark dis­
cussed the subject saying it met with
his hearty approval and that he had
always been in favor of a general
hospital and if Worthingon would
push this idea along he would lend
it any possible help in his power.
Dr. F. M. Manson said he believed
it was the right time to considei a
hospital that he hoped it would
come about and that he would be
glad to utilize it. He had been in­
terested in the matter several years
ago but because of circumstances
over which there was no control the
project was dropped. Now if all
would work together, put their
shouder to the wheel everyone help,
it would be successful and that he
would willingly do bis part to that
Dr. F. A. Carral, of Rushmore,
speaking as an outsider, said he had
many cases at the present time who
needed hospital care, but on account
of expense, being so far from home
and friends they suffered on. i-e
would be more than glad if Worth­
ington would build a hospital so he
could send his caes there where their
family could see them often. He
thought it would be a great thing
for the city and hoped the citizens
would unite in a special effort to­
wards building one.
Mrs. Dr. Manson said that the
hospital would be a success if the
ladies had anything to do with it
and as a representative of the Im­
provement League she was sure all
the ladies would be greatly inter­
ested in such a movement and make
every effort to assist in building
Mrs. Dr. Clark did not want a
hospital provided she had to go
there but thought Worthngton
greatly needed such an institution
for those who demanded special
Rev. G. A. Cahoon greatly fav­
ored the hospital idea and desied
to see a united movement looking
toward the establishment of one.
Dr. F. E. Walker spoke briefly up­
on the matter aad said he would
like to see a general hopital where
any physician of the city would
have free access to it, where each
would have equal rights and where
all could and would work in a spirit
of fraternity and harmony. That
it would assist in placing Worthing­
ton at the head of any of the cities of
southwetern Minnesota and would
be as creditable, if not more so, than
any or all of our church organiza­
tions. Rev. G. A. Cahoon pro­
posed a toast toDr. Wakler as host,
"A Man." Mrs. Dr. Clark also
proposed a toast, "A Gentleman."
Dr. Wallcer responded in a few
words, thanking them for their
adicted to its use.1 toasts, their company and assistance
