Dr. Tompkins, Retiring Dean,
Tells of Medical College
of Virginia Growth.
Minister Describes Development
and Opportunities of the Medi
cal Profession.
A splendid future for the greater
Medical College of Virginia was
prophesied by Dr. Christopher Tomp
kins, retiring dean of the Medical Col
lege, at tho last commencement of the
old Institution In the City Auditorium
last night. Ho stated that tho con
solidation of the two institutions will
do great things for medical education
In Virginia. will he a great Im
provement in the educational facilities
of the city. He said lie hoped, to see
the day when the Medical College of
Virginia would ba considered without
h superior In the United States.
Dr. Tompkins has been a momhfr
of the faculty since 1S70, having been
dean since 18S2. and h?* told of th?
developrnent of the institution, which
had twenty-two students when he
joined the faculty, and now has several
times that number of graduates every
year. At that time it had practically
no national standing, and in 1011 it
was ranked the fourth medical college
in the United States. In Its early days
members of the faculty had to guaran
tee its obligations to keep it going;
and It Joins the other institution with
a .sound financial standing and a large
sum to its credit. The retiring dean
told of Ms regtet upon leaving the
college, to which he has given the best
years of ):is life, and toward which,
he said, he feels as a mother toward
her child.
Addresn bjr Mr. Uowle.
The principal address was made by
Kev. Walter Russell Bowie, who de
scribed the development of the medical
profession, the benefits it has conferred
upon humanity, and the opportunities
that lie before it. Ho read a letter
written by Kenjamin Franklin describ
ing the death of King Charles II., which
states that the dying King was "cupped
and blooded, and hot frying pans put
on his head," but that His Majesty
passed away in spite of these heroic
measures. The speaker showed the
tremendous strides which medicine has
inade since then, and especially during
the past century." Thus, he said, diph
theria has been known historically for
l.SOO years, but the antitoxin which
' has rf-duced the mortality from this
disease by half was not discovered until
i 1S94. He also spoke of the blessing of
anesthesia, which has abolished forover
such sufferings as are described by
Mary Johnston in "The Long Roll."
which tells of the life of wounded sol
dieds in Richmond hospitals during the
! Civil War.
Mr. Howie told of Luther Pasteur, the
: son of a French tanner, who discovered
the existence of germs and how to
combat them, thus making the causes
of many diseases concrete and accessi
ble, and of the conquest of the bubonic
plague, which destroyed 69.000 persons
in London in a single year, but is now
successfully treated by an antitoxin.
He paid especial tribute to the men
who laid down their lives in Manila in
order to prove then*theory that yellow
fever is caused by the bites of mos
* The speaker pointed-out that great
opportunities still lie before the pro
fession in the treatment of cancer,
pneumonia, tuberculosis and many
other diseases. And in all 6f their
? work, he counseled the young doctors
l r.evor to neglect the human phase of
their profession, and always tp remem
ber that the alleviation of suffering is
a higher good than the solution of
scientific problems.

The invocation and henediction were
spoken by Rev. J. \V. Morris, and the

9 Year Old Child Rescued from a Monster
The Escape of a Horrible Death Xnr
nowly Averted?The Child Could
Not Have Endured the Awful
Strain Much Longer.
At No. 120 South Linden Street re
sides Mrs. Florence S. Duggan a.:.l
her two little sons, 11 and 0 yeurs,
respectively. Little 0-year-old Lon
nle has been almost a constant suf
ferer of one malady or another for
the past six years; has had three at
tacks of fever?in fact, he had a
cough at times seemed as though he
had consumption. He has had the
best of attention from a loving
mother's hand, and the best of treat
ment, but the child could never fully
regain perfect health. At times he
had a ravenous appetite; then again
the sight of food would nauseate him,
stomach would bloat, lumps would
form, heart would jump and flutter,
pains in back of hea<j, sometimes
over eyes; dizziness, weak, run-down,
tired, languid feeling. His mother
said: "I have to be very careful of
him; It seems as though I have to
give this child some kind of medicine
all the time. He has had a bronchial
trouble ever since he was born. I
was afraid he inherited the tubercu-'
lar disease that his father succumbed
to; but after reading in the papers
about the worms that ^ffect children
and adults and how the wonderful
Quaker Herb Extract that Gray, the
Quaker health teacher, is introducing
at the Tragle Drug Store, would expel
all worms from child or adult with
out sickness, dieting or any ill ef
fects. 1 decided to try them, and a
thousand times pleased I am, for
after giving it only six days, little
Lonnie expeled a monster life-sap
ping tapeworm forty-one feet In
length, head and all complete, and I
feel that this has been the cause of
most all his trouble. And tc think
how easy the Quaker Herb Extract
did the work!" Gray says this is
only one; watch and see how many
dozens of monster parasites will be
expelled right here In Richmond, for
hundreds of children and adults are
sufferers from worms of some kind
and don't know It. Many supposed
casos of stomach trouble is worms.
There Is one reason Quaker Herb Ex
tract has made the wonderful repu
tation in curing different form's of
stomach trouble?it expels them.
This monster along with several other
specimens of worms, can be seen free
to all at Tragle's Drug Store. -Gray,
the health teacher, Is there, and will
cheerfully answer all .questions per
taining to Quaker remedies. He also
claims thoy cure Rheumatism, Ca
tarrh, Kidney, Liver, Bladder or
Blood Trouble, Indigestion and Con
stipation. Call to-day; it costs noth
ing to talk. If you can't call, order
by mall. The remedies will he sent
you by express on receipt of price.
