The time for the meeting of the National Eclectic Medical Association is fast drawing near. The meeting in Kansas City, Mo., in June of this year requires the presence and co-operation of every Eclectic in this union. No better time for organization could possibly exist than now, and certainly no time ever called more loudly for a united action than at present.
The tendency to indifference and lethargy must be thrown off, and a strong pull for the hearty operation of united efforts must be encouraged. Make yourself promise to attend this meeting, and keep yourself fully informed of all matters concerning it, by subscribing for all of the Eclectic Medical journals, thereby not only improving your own fund of information, by helping the various journals to improve their present enviable condition by your help and courage.
No man can be a good physician and be a sluggard, he must either go forward or retrograde, there can be no halfway place, with ease -and pleasant comforts unless he first puts forth all his energy to help others as well as himself. So wake up, rub up, and by contact and friction against your brethren take on a higher degree of polish medically speaking.
Make a firm determination to attend the meeting in June, and help us as well as yourself.
L. A. PERCE, M. D., President.
