Mr. drowning was 71 years old, and was seriously a 111 lc ted with ucuiotlc disease: uerv mis I rouble: was very Iraslble, easily provoked, easily luitiieiiced: at times Intractable ami wholly Incompetent lo attend to his business or lo under stand the nature or scope of any transaction into which he might see proper to enter.

These medical societies have evi dently proven a grand tiling for the profession and we are glad to note that Holt county keeps right up at the head of the profession as shown by the Interest that all the physicians In the county take In their meetings every tlnce mouths. The meeting was held In Dr, riiatcher'solllce, and Dr. Ii. M. Mil lor presided.
