A Medical Consultation

The following interesting article from the pen of C. S. Carr, M.D., first appeared in the December, 1899, number of Medical Talk and was republished in a recent issue of the Weekly Herald of Dayton, O. Coming as it does from the pen of a physician, it is not only suggestive but interesting and instructive to all people who read it with care. The doctor's explanation of the Christian Science method of healing is not correct, but this is wholly excusable in a physician not claiming to be a christian Scientist or a student thereof.

Following is the article:—

Let us suppose we have a sick person before us; no matter what the disease is, one malady will serve our purpose about as well as another. Now, let us suppose there are four doctors by the patient's bedside. One is an allopathic doctor, another is an eclectic doctor, another is a homœopathic doctor, and the other one is a Christian Scientist. Each one believes he can cure the patient; each one has a suspicion that the other three cannot. Each one believes he is right and the other three are wrong.
