Physicians Call

It is very evident to the mind of any physician of Union Parish, the importance of our Medical Society. Not from a selfish or mercenary standpoint but from a broad, philanthropic, charitable conception of the purpose in question. When we consider this subject honestly and thoroughly we once comprehend the good resulting therefrom. We cannot only impart knowledge to our brother doctor but we likewise receive from each member present information he has gained by his experience that we could only gain from like sources. Hence the physicians of the parish, in regular sessions, could establish a school where we could teach and be taught, at the some time have a good old time experience meeting. We all know by precept or example what a good experience meeting is to a protracted meeting. Our D. D’s have them why not our M. D.’s have them too.

We learn more of each other; become better acquainted and better views and opinions are formed of one another. Selfishness, animosity, and envy, if there be any, are replaced by brotherly love, charity and benevolence.

We discuss the leading medical topics of to day and keep abreast with the rapid strides made in the science of medicine, better preparing ourselves each meeting to successful combat disease, death and the devil. It is the busy practitioner who especially needs to attend these meetings as he is constantly drawing on his store house of knowledge. The physician who has no need of knowledge would be a little out of place in a meeting. I therefore earnestly urge all physicians in the parish to attend our regular meeting at Farmerville on April 9th, 10 A.M.

C. H. Jameson, President.
