Tnflrmlty of King Asa Is Made
the Text of an Eloquent Tribute to tho
Medical Profession Good Beswnt
Why All Ioctors Should Be Christians.
"And Asa. In the thirtv and ninth vear of
his reign, was diseased In his feet until his
disease was exceeding great, yet In his
disease he sought not to the Lord, hut to
the physicians. ? And Asa slent with his
fathers. "II, Chronicles xviM 12, 18.
At this Heasoia of the vear. when medical
colleges of all schools of medicine are giv
ing diplomas to young doctors, and at the
capital and In many of the cities medical
uwwmnouii are aseemotinK to consult
about the advancement of the interests of
their profession, I feel this discourse Is ap
propriate. , u
In my text H King Asa with the trout.
High living aafl n exercise have vitiated
his blood, and toy text presents him with
im innamed and bandaged feet on an otto
man. Iwdoflahoe of God, whom ho hated,
he sends for certain coniurors or ouaeks.
They come and give him all sorts of lotions
auu panaceas; They bleed him. They
sweat him. Tttey manipulate him. Thev
blister him. SThey poultice him.' Thev
scarify him. they drug him. They cut
him. They kul him. He was only a young
man and had a disease which, though verv
paiuful, seldom proves fatal to a young
man, and ho ought to have got well, but he
ieii a victim to chariatanrv and empiricism.
"And Asa in tbie thirty and ninth year of
his reign was diseased in his feet until his
disease was exceeding great, yet in his dis
ease ho sought hot to the Lord, but to the
physicians. And Asa slept with his fa
thers." That is, the doctors killed him.
In this sharp and graphic way the Bible
sets forth the truth, that you have no right
to snut woaiout from the realm of
maey and! therapeutics. If Asa had
said: "O Lord I am sick. Bless the in
strumentality employed for my recovery."
Now, servant, go and get the host doctor
roil can flndM--h would have recovered,
n other words' the world wants divinelv
directed physicians. There aro a trroat
many such. The diplomas they received
from the academies of medicine were
nothing compared with the diploma they
receivod from jtfce, Head Physician of the
universe on thoi day when they started out
and He said to tjhBra, Oo heal the sick and
cast out the devils of pain and open the
blind eyes and Unstop tho deaf oars. ' God
bless tho dootoils all tho world over, and let
au the hospitals and dispensaries and In
firmaries aud asivlUms and domestic circles
of the earth respond, "Amen."
men or the medical profession we often
moot in the home of distross. We shake
hands across the table of agonized lufancy
We join each other fn an attempt at solace
where tho paroxysm of grief demands an
anodyne as well' aa a prayer. We look Into
each other's sympathetic faces through the
dusk as the night of death is falling in the
sick room. We do not have to climb over
uuy unrricr to-qay m order to greet oacn
other, for our professions are in full sym
pathy. You, doctor, are our first and last
earthly friend. . You stand at tho crates of
life when we enter this world and you stand
at ine gates oi death when we go out of it.
In the closing moments of our earthlv exist
ence, when the 1 wind of the wife or mother,
or sister or daughter, shall hold our right
hand, it will give strength to our dving mo
ments li we can reel the tips of your lingers
along the pulse! of the left wrist. We do
not meet to-day, as on other days, in houses
of distress, but by the pleasant altars of
God, and I propose a sermon of helpfulness
and good cheer. As in the nursery children
sometimes re-enact all the scenes of the
sick room, so to-day you play that you are
the patient and that I am the physician, and
taso my prescription just once. It shall be
a tonio. a sodatlve.'a dietetic, a disinfect
ant. a stimulus and an anodvneat the same
time. "Is thorel net halm in Gilead? Is
there not a physician taore?"
In tho first place, I think all the medical
profession should become Christians be
cause of tho debt of gratitude they owe to
mi tor tne nonor tie bos put upon their
calling. No ot h.r oilllng in all the world,
except It be that Of the Christian ministry,

See what this profession has done for hu
man longevity. There was such a fearful
subtraction from human life that there
prospect that within a few centuries this
world would he left almost lnhabltantless.
Adam started with a whole eternity of
earthly existence before him, but he cut off
the most of it and only comparatively few
years were left only 700 years of ltfo, and
then 600, and then 400, and then 200. and
then 100, and then 60, and then the average
of human life came to 40. and then It
dropped to 18. But medical science came
in, and since the sixteenth century the
average of human life has risen from 18
years to 44, and it will continue to rise un
til the average of human life will he 60, and
it will be 60, and it win oe 7U, ana a man
will have no right to die before 90, and the
prophecy of Isaiah will be literally fulfilled,
''And the child shall die 100 years old."
The millennium for the souls of men will
be the millennium for the bodies of men.
Sin done, disease will be done, the clergy
man and the physician getting through
with their work at the same time time.
But it seems to me that the most beauti
ful benediction of the medical profession
has been dropped upon the poor. No ex
cuse now for any one's not having scientific
attendance. Dispensaries and Infirmaries
everywhere, under the control of the best
doctors, some of them poorly paid, some of
them not paid at all. A half starved woman
comes out from the low tenement house
into the dispensary and unwraps the rags
from her babe, a bundle of ulcers and rheum
and pustules, and over that little sufferer
bends the accumulated wisdom of the ages,
from j&soulapius -down to last week's
autopsy. In one dispensary in one year
150,000 prescriptions were issued. Why do
I show you what God has allowed this pro
fession to do? Is It to stir up your vanity?
Oh, nol The day has gone by for pompous
doctors, with oonspiouous gold-headed
eases and powdered wigs, wnion wore tne
accompaniments in the days when the bar
ber used to carry through the strcots of
London Dr. Hrockelsbv's wig. to the ad
miration and awe of the people.
"Make way! Hero comes Dr. Brockelsby
wlff." No: I announce these things not
only to increase the appreciation of laymen
In regard to the work of physicians, but to
stir in the hearts of tho men of the medical
profession a feeling of gratitude to Ood
that they bavo been allowed to put their
hand to such a magniuoent woric nnu tnat
they have been called into such illustrious
company. Have you never reit a spirit oi
gratitude for this opportunity? Do you
not feel thankful now? Then, I am afraid,
doctor, you are not a Christian and that the
old proverb whlcn cnrist quoica in uis ser
mon may be appropriate to you, "Physi
cian, heal thyself.
Another reason why I think tho medical
profession ought to bo Christians is be
cause tnore are so many trials una annoy
ances in tbat profession that noed positive
Christian solace. I know you havo the
fratitude of a great many good people, and
know it must be a grand thing to walk in
telligently through tne avenues of human
life, and with anatomic skill poise yourself
on the nerves and fibers which cross and
recross this wonderful physical system. I
suppose a skilled eye can see more beauty
even In a malformation than an architect
can point out in any of his structures,
though it be the very triumph of arch and
plinth and abacus. But how many annoy
ances and trials the medical profession
have! Dr. Bush used to say in his valedic
tory address to the students of the medical
college: "Young gentlemen, have two pock
etsa small pocket and a big pocket; a
small pocket In which to put your fees, a
large pocket in which to put your annoy
ances. In the first plaoe the physician has no
Sabbath. Busy merchants and lawyers
and mechanics cannot afford to be sick
during the secular week, and so theymurse
themselves nlong with lozenges and hore-
hound candy until Babbath morning comes,
and then they say, "i must nave a aoctor.
And that spoils the Habbatn morning cnurcn
service for the physician, lieshics that,
there are a great many men who dine but
once a week with their families. During
tho secular days they take a hasty lunch at
tho restaurant, and on the Babbath they
make up fos '.heir six days' abstinence by
especial gormandising, which, before
night, makes thoir amazed digestive or
gans cry out for a doctor. And that spoils
the evening ohurch servlco for tho phys
ician. Then they aro annoyed by people coming
too late. Men wait until the last fortress
of physical strength is taken and death
has dug abound It tho trenoh of the grave,
and then they run for the doctor. The
slight fever which might have been oured
with a footbath has beoome virulent typhus,
and the backing oough-killlng pneumonia.
As though a captain should sink his ship
off Amagansett, and thon put ashore in a
yawl, and then oomo to New York to the
marine office and want to get his vessel in
sured. Too late for tho ship, too late for
Then there are many who always blame
the doctor because the people die, forget
ting the divine enactment, "It is appointed
unto all men once to die," The father In
medicine Who announced the fact that he
had discovered the art by which to make
men In this world Immortal, himself died at
47 years of age, showing that Immortality
was less than naif a century for him, Oh,
how easy It li when people die to ery out.
"Malpractice," Then the physician mut
hear with all the whims, aud thu aaphttrie,
and tne deceptions, and the stratagem,
and the trritfttfe&s of the shattered nerves
and the beclouded brains of woman, and
more espodlally with men who never know
how gracefully to be sick, and with their
salivated mouths curse thu doctor, giving
him bis duos, as they say about the only
dues he will in that oase collect. The last
hill that is paid is the doctor's bill. It
seems so Incoherent for a restored pat tout,
with ruddy choeks and rotund form, to bo
bothered with a bill charging him for old
oalomol and jalap. The physicians of this
country do more missionary work without
cdtarge than all the other professionals put

Another reason why the medical profes
sion ought to be Christians is because there
opens before them such a grand field tor
Christian usefulness. You see so many
people in pain, in trouble, in bereavement.
You ought to bo the voice of heaven to thoir
souls. Old Dr. OaSherie De Witt, a prac
titioner of New York, told me In his last
days, "I always present the religion of
Christ to my patients, either directly or In
directly, and I find ft almost always accept
able." Drs. Abercrombie and Brown, of
Scotland, Drs. Hey and Fothergili of Eng
land and Dr. Bush of our own country
were celebrated for their faithfulness in
that direction. "Oh, " says the medical
profession, "that Is your occupation.
That belongs to the clergy, not to us."
My brother, there are severe illnesses in
which you will not admit even the clergy,
and that patient's salvation will depend
upon your faithfulness. With the medicine
for the body in one hand, the medicine for
the soul in the other, oh, what a chanoe.
There lies a dvincr Christian on the pillow.
You need to hold over him the lantern of
the gospel until its light streams across the
pathway of the departing pilgrim, and you
need to cry into the dull ear of death,
"Hark to the song of heaven's welcome
that comes stealing over the waters!"
There lies on the pillow a dying sinner.
All the morphine that you brought with
you cannot quiet idin. Terror in the face.
Terror in the heart. How ho jerks himself
up on one elbow and looks wildly into vour
face and says: "Doctor, I can't die. I am
not ready to die. What makes it so dark?
Doctor, can you pray?" Dlessed for you
and blessed for him If thon you can kneel
down and say: "0 Ood, I have done tho
best I could to curo this man's body, and I
have failed. Now I commit to thee his
poor, suffering and affrighted soul. Open
Paradise to his departing spirit."
But I must close, for thre may be suf
fering men and women waiting in your
ofiico, or on tho hot pillow, wondering
why you don t come. Hut before you go
o doctors, hear my prayer for your eternal
salvation. Blessed will bo the reward In
heaven for tho faithful Christian phyd
olan. Some day, through overwork or from
bending over a patient and catching his
contagious breath, the doctor comos home,
and ho lies down faint and sick. Ho is too
weary to feel his Own pulso dr tako tho di
agnosis of his own complaint. Ho is worn
out. The fact is, his work on earth is
ended. Tell those people in tho offteo
thorethcy noed not wait any longer. Tho
doctor will novcr go thoro again. Ho has
written his last proscription for tho allevia
tion of human pain. Tho people will run
up his front stops and inquire, "How is tho
doctor to-day?" All the sympathies of tho
neighborhood will bo aroused and there
will be many prayers that ho who has
boon so kind to the sick may bo com
forted in his last pang. It is all over now.
In two or throe days his convaloscont pa
tients, with shawl wrapped around them,
will come to the front window and look out
at the passing hearse, and the poor of the
city, barefooted and bareheaded, will stand
on the street corner, Baying, "Oh, how
good he was to us all!" But on tho other
side of the river of death some of his old
patients who aro forever cured, will come
out to welcome him, and tho physician of
hoaven, with locks as white as snow, ac
cording to the Apooalyptio vision, will
come out and say. "Come in, como in. I
was sick and yo visited me."

A singular omission In the matter of
legal formalities is the failure of the
Federal laws to provide for notifying
a President-elect of his election. The
electoral votes are counted, and the re
sult of the enumeration Is recorded in
the Journals of both Houses of Con
gress; but it is left for the President
elect to find out the result in whatever
way be can and to Rresont himself for
inauguration on the next succeeding
fourth day of March. As a matter ot
fact the person elected to the highest
office In the republic gets his notifica
tion from the newspapers.
