The following extract is from ao ad-
dresB of Ber.,Dr. Biohard Is Storrs,
before the graduating olasa of the
medical department of the University
olltheOlty of New York, at the Academy
uf Mnaio. I wish that I might impress
open yon the great trnth'that every man
is a debtor to his profession. It lies
with him to enlarge Its resources, to in
crease its nsefulneee, to mnltiply its
oapaoilies for making the world better.
The man who plaoee snob an ideal as
this before him ean alone hope for a
true and grand aucoeas. It does not
shot ou: a due And proper respect for
the past and its tmtne; but along with
that it is ever weloMning the spirit of
the new light 1 know there ate some-
timee men, in the medkai as in the
olerical profeaiion, who sail away from
the ptariical world aa in a ballon. In
tbeir own estimation at least thu bal
loon of theirs swings level and tranquil
in the air; aad to their eve it is the
earth that seems to sink ^ down
below them. Now, there is often a
wonderful favoination In saoh theeries;
but we mori remember that tbeir chief
and only oonsUtaent ia gaa. Not ooly
that, bnt they ara environed with pewiC
and they frequently end in death. It
ia In aceoidanee with the highest lavra
for progteaa to keep what is tme, and
to advance from tbt (o other truths.
Ve ate impelled to recognize this in oar
livem OMtiemea, lemettber, ttiat
whatever auy be your shill or your
learning or yon> reputatton, ydu n^ a
firm, aweet, atrong, mtnal spirit, by
means of whidt you'wiU be able tb
bless your patients more than by allthe
drags in the pharmaeoiKBla. I have

Bufue Choate gave of one. ."Stiff aa
