Editor Evening Journal: —I see with much pleasure the just and needed editorial to-day on "Death in Unknown Remedies," and since the Christian Scientist is being well peppered, the drugs advertised as "cure-alls" should be relegated to the rear of the at least harmless "Christian Science," which, however, has neither science nor sense. "Thousands are slaughtered in the quiet sick-room," said the famous "Regular" Dr. Franke, while Sir Astley Cooper told his class that "The medical profession as a whole is founded on conjecture and improved by murder."

Scan how many are needlessly slaughtered by operations for appendicitis, etc.; still, the lesser customs, like the poorer classes, must be persecuted and unjustly arraigned, while the wealthy snobs and elite poisoners are lauded to the pinnacle of fame, and poor, normal nature and her health laws are ignored, and we are a nation of medical and healing quacks.
