The National Eclectic Medical Association.

Every physician wherever located this year should make a special effort to attend the Kansas City meeting. This appeals especially to the western Eclectics because of the central location among them. The point has many attractions and is very accessible.

Dr. Perce is making a vigorous effort to collect as many attractive features as possible and to interest every physician in this meeting. His efforts are certainly praiseworthy and every physician must co-operate with him.

During the past two years there has been a marked change in medical matters in the United States and the demand for energetic action on the part of our own men was never so great as now. To supply this demand every individual must do his very best.

To do his best demands that he should come in contact with those who are conversant with the situation, that he may imbibe some of the enthusiasm these possess and be stimulated by the essential friction and by the influence of immediate contact.

Every officer is doing his best apparently and should have the encouragement of all. It is certainly to be desired that every member should engage actively this year for effectual work. Make it your business to be there, Doctor, without fail.
