St. Joseph (Mo.) Gazette

The suggestion of the American Medical Association for a Federal "board of medical licensure" should be carefully gone into by the people generally.

We are taking precious little medicine these days. The doctor sells none at all, and the druggist only a small part of what his professional brethren of a generation ago disposed of yearly. The people are taking air and exercise in large doses, and nostrums by the absent treatment chiefly. The people, moreover, are feeling very well in these latter days.

We'd love to hear from you!
