The Inland League Entertained by
an Interesting Lecture Last
The lecture before the Inland
League last evening by Dr. Carrosv
was well attended, and his subject,
"Medicine Among the Chinese,"
was exceedingly interesting. He
assumed control of one of the hos-
pitals at Canton in 1376, and re-
mained there eight years. This hos-
pital receives about 40,000 patients.
This experience enabled him to
study thoroughly the habits and cus-
toms of this curious people which
formed more the basis of Iis talk
than his own personal experience.
He began by saying that pure sci-
enceis unknown among the Chinese.
Disease is there attributed to the
anger of the gods or the enmity of
some departed spirit. Recourse is
always made to the gods, when sick,
but they also use much medicine,
and their materia medica is exten-
sive, containing thousands of drugs.
Rhubarb and gingseng enter into
every prescription, He showed how
difficult the early practice of medi-
cine was among them, owing to their
superstition. A physician had to
guarantee that the patient would get
well, which of necessity limited the
practice, especially surgery. Post-
mortems are not allowed among
them. They have no idea as to the
difference in the arterial and venous
systems. They call the heart the
"prince of the body," and think'
the power of thought lies there.
The soul is in the liver, and the
bony frame-work in one longitudinal
half of the body is all one b┬źne. The
examination of the pulse in dift-
ent parts of the body constitutes t:
main physical examination of a Cin
nese doctor.
A beautiful illustration or the
doctrine of 'similia similibus curan-
tur" was exemplified in their meth-
od of "setting the brain.''
The speaker closed by saying that
his remarks applied to the people in
southern China, and not to the
north, where the dialect and cus-
toms are no doubt quite different.
A couple of fine selections were
rendered by Mrs. Clement and Mr.
The junior laws will have their
last quiz in Pleading and Practice
this week.

Unity Club Meeting.
The lecture given by Rev. Caro-
line J. Bartlett, of Kalamazoo, last

Folishill and the many places and
things of interest there and there-
abouts, were charmingly described.

and reminiscences connected with;
her journey.
Stratford -on-Avon was most
graphically described, especially the
homes of Shakespeare and Anne
Hathaway, the Holy Trinity church,
etc. In conclusion the lecturer re-
cited Shakespeare's poem, "Across
the Fields to Anne" in an appreci-
able and pleasing manner.

tor in Scientific languages, was born

Meet and Settle a Question that
Has Agitatedthe Class for
Several Days.
The senior law meeting was largely
attended last evening, but the class
only remained in session a few

minutes. When President Jefferis
stated the object of the meeting, a
motion was made and almost unani-
mously carried that all reference to
the matter before the meeting be
expunged from the secretary's book.
Another resolution was offered and
carried that the class endorse Messrs. _H__E __ ADE
