fHE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO OCTOBER 27, 1891
THE DOCTORS.
Re?. C. T. Brady Talks Them Up
Iu a Very Able Manner
last Night.
Rev. C. T. Brady, rector of Calvary
church, preached to the physicians
banday night and hu discourse was
an excellent one.
The attendance was not large but
was select.
Only one physician who belongs to
the Pettis county medical society was
present
One homeopathic devotee was pres
ent, lie is not recognized by tbe
medical society because the pills he
uses are not "regular" eizs.
Several apothecaries were on hand
to learn bow to make jalap.
Dr. binitu, a dental surgeon was
there to see if the rector would tell
how to extract a molar aDd allow the
victim to stand sti'l and square on his
pastern joints.
The only doctors not represented
were the honorable horse doctors and
the villianous abortionists.
The preacher read for his first les
son from the Apocrypha, Eicleaias
tess, XXXVII chapter.
Speaking of the physician it says :
"The Lord hath created him."
That is correct, as he created all
things.
The medical colleges turn out car
loads of new doctors every year who
are loaded down with diplomas and
wisdom.
He don't have much hand in di
plomas on sheep skin. His diplomas
are in the countenances of Hisollow
ers and in their good works.
"All have a deep interest in those
who are to administer to their wants
when sick," said the preacher.
That is a fact, especially when be
presents his bill at 82 per visit.
Ht. Luke and St. Paul were associ
ated together in their good works and
while St. Luke felt of the pulse and
looked at the tongue, St. Paul in
quired if they had been reading the
KflTuqm City Sun and patronizing
the bucket shop. In other words,
while one looked after the bodily ill,
the other inquired after the diseased -
soul.
It is ditterent, in a measure, now,
Mr. Brady. The undertaker gener-
erally gets in his work directly after
tbe present at. liuke and betore tne
latter day St. Paul has time to com
pass the situation.
"A physician,1' said Mr. Brady,
"should be highly educated, a pol
ished gentleman, a man thoroughly
versed in his calling and one who
loves his profession with the greatest
devotion."
A doctor who don t idolize bis pro
fession could not cure the measles,
jaundice, itch or the ills attendant
upon a serious case of well directed
love.
"Peter's wife's mother lay sick
of a fever," and Peter sent for a
doctor auick:
Now-a days when your mother-in
law is sick, the doctor is about the
last man sent for.
If Doctor Carter were living, tbey
would send for him.
He was very slow, but an awful
.clever man and attended the Salva
tion army regularly.
Mr. Brady said doctors should be
poets, punters and preachers, with
the love of God in their hearts.
Wc don' think there is achy m the
west that has as many praying doctors
as Sedalia according to the -number.
But as for painters they could not be
trusted to paint a kitchen floor. As
for writing poetry none have made a
half a scholar even. Preaching
wonldnot be just to their hand but none
of the doctors in Sedalia would make
a failure as single-footed exhorters.
St. Luke and St. Paul were ship
wrecked on the Mediterranean Sea in
a boat of many tons burthen. It was
aa awful disaster and the whole story
was told in a few verses in theXXVH
chapter of Acts. They were saved
from watery graves by the aid of
boards and broken pieces of the ship.
If the latter day reporter had been
assigned to write up the disaster he
would have scooped St. Paul on the
details aud occupied at least a page in
a metropolitan journal, but the inci
dents of the shipwreck has its lesson
and the rector made the most of it in
good applications.
The preacher dwelt upon the igno
rant doctor. He should not be toler
ated in any community. The apothe
caries present could have given Mr.
Brady some good points on this
subject.
The doctor must, to be successful,
a cheerful man, full of sympathy,
kind and consoling words. No place
in a sick, chamber for a long counte
nance and solemn face.
That is a grave fact, Mr. Brady.
Tbe meat solemn faced man we ever
knew was a doctor in Indiana. He
borrowed four dollars of the writer
and we never saw him afterward. We
have worn a solemn face ever since
when we thought of him.
"Patience is a great virtue. A doc-
tor must be a patient man" said the
preacher, "and .wLen one kind of
medicine does not restore to health,
try another," he continued.
That's what they generally do. If
tbey don't think the person visited
needs any drugs they will give him
bread pills. "He presses the pulse"
and nature "does the rest." As for
trying different remedies, that is what
they are compelled to do or take in
their sign. They try everything in the
materia medica except advertising in
the columns of a newspaper of known
circulation like the Bazoo. There is
no salve for such an omission.
"The most skilled physician cannot
effect a cure without tbe help of Got.
He is the Great Doctor who heals all"
said Mr. Brady.
"Earth has no sorrow that Heaven
cannot heal," but we knew a reporter
once who had a continuous case of
"spring fever' and we think he wou'd
have given heaven a hard pull to heal
him, for a poor news item would out
run him 100 feet in every 100 yards.
The sermon was listened to very at
tentively and tbe rectoi'a thoughts
were well and effectively expressed.
Next Sunday night he will talk to
the lawyers. Billie Steele, George
Longan, Col. Henry Lamm, John
Caehman and all others should at
tend. The rector should ssnd to
Kansas and get Will Work Somebody
Snoddy to hold up as a horrible ex
ample of a lawyer, who always took
everything his client bad unless it
was fastened with a Yale lock and the
key thrown in tbe cistern.

A BIT OF MISSOURI ROMANCE.
Kansas City Star.
The felonious termination of the
case of the state of Missouri versus
Colonel Richard Liddell recalls an
episode of bygone interest of the peo
ple of Western Missouri Ten years
ago Colonel Liddell was a member of
that brilliant staff which surrounded
Colonel Jesse James, whose trusted
friend and valued lieutenant be was.
Colonel Liddell was a gentleman of
fine personal presence and most en
gaging manners despite the disagree
able exigencies of his calling and the
necessity of vigorous, even austere
conduct. According to the legends of
that period Uolonel Liiudell was accus
tomed to penetrate into the towels of
Kay county, where he was often
thrown icto tbe societv of Colonel
Wood Hite, another admirer and
humble follower of Colonel James.
It must be understood that Colonel
Liddell was a "divil of a fellow
the ladies" per reason of the
romantic nature of his vocation
and the acknowledged charm of his
address. One day so the legend
runs Colonel Liddell and Colonel
Hite were discussing in a somewhat
heated way the merits and demerits
of a certain nymph, whose identity
has not been established, and from
argument rapidly proceeded to the
more effective use of firearms. Colonel
Liddell had already perforated Colonel
Hite once or twice in a convincing
manner, when Colonel Robert Ford,
who was an interested spectator of
the debate, wearied of the apparently
friendly discussion and put two bul
lets into Colonel Hite's head. As
Colonel Hite thereupon evinced a
disinclination to continue the argu
ment Colonel Liddell and Colonel
Ford took him out and buried him,
and from that moment de
cided that they were bound
together by a tie more enduring than
the ordinary bond of friendship.
This was in February, 1832, or
thereabout In April of the same year
Colonel Ford resumed his pistol prac
tice. As Colonel James was hanging
pictures one day in his cozy home in
St, Joseph but why repeat a story
which is now a part of the romantic
literature of Missouri ? After Colonel
James had been laid away with im
pressive ceremonies near the old fam
ily villa in Clay county, it became
necessary for the state of Missouri to
take formal action respecting the dis
appearance of Colonel Hite. In view,
however, of the distinguished public
services of Colonel Ford, abetted by
the earnest moral support of Colonel
Liddell, the state of Missouri was iu
au awkward predicament. It was rea
soned that Colonel Hite was a danger
ous menace to tbe morals of society
and that his death, far from being an
evidence of crime, was a great public
blessing and a token of providential
interposition. Accordingly Colonel
Ford was released with a warn
ing to use proper care in
tbe subsequent employment of
firearms. Colonel Liddeli's case
was distinguished by the rapidity

which characterizes criminal iurispru
dence in Missouri, and was finally set-
tied a day or two ago. Colonel .Lid
dell was running a string of horses in
tbe east, and was naturally indignant
that he should be called upda to make
a long and tedious journey to answer
to so simple and inconsequential
charge. He was measurably soothe )
nowever, wnen upon arrival the case
was dismissed with proper apologies.
The romantic story of Colonel Lid
dell will live long after the colonels of

Missouri's chivalry have passed away

Will the Earth's) Motion Cease.
Is tho motion of our earth and oth
er planetary bodies perpetual? A su
perficial survey of the field would con
vey the impression that such motion
will continue forever. The earth with
its mass of 8.000.000,000,000.000 tons
for a long time defied all attempts to
detect its loss of speed, but, with tho
friction of the tides continually at
work it was shown that such loss must
take place, and now it is protty cer
tain from calculations of Prof. Adams
and others that the earth loses about
an hour every 16,000 years, and is
slowly but surely coming to a stand
still. The experiments and investi
gations of modern scientists nro prov
ing that Sir Isaao Newton believed
that the motion of all bodies in space
are suffering retardation, and that
their velocity is becoming less and
less and will ultimately aenso altogeth
er. Then the whole planetary system
will fall through space everlasting.

A MOTHER'S MISTAKE.
Mothers frequently make a mistake in
neglecting the Cough of a child. A Fort
Wayne, Iod.,lady writes: My little daugh
ter 6 years old had a severe Cough but aa
it was noting unusual I thought nothing
of it.and allowed it to run on 4 or 5 weeks,
when it became si obitinate she began
losing flesh. I called in a physician who
treated her three weeks without benefit. A
neighbor insisted upon my trying Ballard's
Horehonnd Syrup; it relieved her from the
first dose and she began gaining flesh
rapidly, when we had used two bottles her
Coogh had entirely disappeared. I would
not be without it. It does not constipate
my children, Ballard's Horehonnd Syrnp
