and mother must speak correct English "'

mistakes of the children. No lessons in

HAVE YOU A CONSCIENCE?
The writer of this docs not gain a live
lihood by practising medicine. Ho sacri-j
fleed the best years of his life in the ac-,
tive exercise of the duties of an ill requited
and arduous profession. If the physician's*
body is not fatigued, bis mind is always
distressed. Wc say to our read rs> if you is
otro your doctor, go and pay him. Re
member how anxiously you looked for
his arrival ; how you demanded he should
whip and spur; how 3 'ou thought he should
shake off sleep, disregnid heat and brave
the cold ; how early and how late you
called upon him. \Vo havo seen brick
houses piled up, farms bought and magni
ficent equipages belonging io th®so who
were neglecting to compensate their phy
sician. If wo had our life to lead
again, we would make every man pay; wc
would value our services ns tho farmer
doos his grain, or (lie merchant his wares,
or tho lawyer his advice. If wo were not
lauded for our philanthropy and kindness,
we would bc respected , as tho worid goes,
for the respectability of our bank account.
" Put money in thy jmrsc" and then you
outrage the jaw, disregard decency
snap your fingers at society. Put
money in thy purse; and then, no matter
by what means you acquiro it, legal
legal, wholesale or retail, refined or vulgar,
you will command the attention of the
Church and the respect of Society. The
jingle of your dollars will bo an open
sesame to the Fifth Avenue or Grace
Church. We say, then, to the Doctor—
put money in t|iy parse; to tho patient—
pay yoitr bill. •
