THE HE Faculty of the Eclectic Medical Institute refer with pride to the large list of matriculants and graduates who have been instructed in this college. For forty-two years we have seen a succession of vigorous, free thinking men, coming for instruction in a new and better practice of medicine, and geing out to fight the battle of reform before the people. That the instruction has been good, and that the battle has been well fought, is proven by the success of the school of medicine. Commencing with but a few score of physicians, who endured much persecution for opinion's sake, it has grown to a body numbering between six and seven thousand successful men, so strong that they can not be persecuted with safety.

The retrospect is very satisfactory, and we may be well satisfied if the next forty-two years show as sturdy progress. Evidently we must be up and doing if we are to keep our record good as progressive practitioners of medicine. The past is behind us, and we may see how success has been earned; the future is before us, and by the light of the past we may determine how success may be obtained. In the past we have enlisted a sturdy, free thinking class of men, who preferred their own observation and reason to the dogmas of medical authorities. In the future we hope to enlist the same liberal thinking men, but with a better education and higher culture.

In the rapid growth of our country we find an equally rapid growth of all that pertains to a high civilization. The acquirements that were necessary to success twenty-five years ago, will not suffice in the

future. The physician should be a man of liberal education, as medicine is one of the learned professions. In the near future he must be a man of good education and well trained mind, to command success. We have therefore to ask the patrons of this college to use their influence to have students properly prepare themselves for their work by getting a sound English education, and by a well regulated course of scientific reading. A year or two more or less in this preparation should not be counted against the great advantages it will give in professional life. None recognize more fully than we do the advantages of tact, industry, and love for the practice of medicine. But with these we want such educational training that the physician will be classed with the clergy man and the lawyer.

Again, it should not be forgotten that the physician of the future will need a larger and higher professional training, and that this requires more time-especially more time spent in college-than has heretofore been given. In the past, two courses of lectures of sixteen to twenty weeks each, have been thought sufficient to prepare the student for the practice of medicine. Probably ninety out of every hundred graduates in this country have had but this amount of study. To day, with us, seventy per cent. of our graduates attend three or more courses of lectures of twenty weeks each, and the time will soon come when no one will expect graduation on less.

Especial attention is called to the fact that this college provides for the most thorough education at the price of but two sessions. And further, that our college year is a college year in fact, and not a brief twelve to twenty weeks. The lectures commence September 1st, and close June 6th to 8th, without an intermission. This enables the student to pursue his studies in the college without waste of time, and obtain double the instruction that he would in other places. The advantages of this method are so great that sooner or later all medical colleges will be obliged to conform to it, and make the medical college year as long as it is in other institutions of learning.

There are reasons for the large attendance here, other than the fact that the college has age and is central in position. A good reputation is a good thing, and an old institution has the credit of stability at least. But beyond this, the Eclectic Medical Institute is noted for its thorough teaching, and staunch Eclecticism. We have a past of which we are proud, and of which we are tenacious. We teach the Eclecticism of the fathers as it was taught in the same halls nearly half a century ago. As the years have passed, there have been improvements in our materia medica, our pharmacy, and our therapeutics, and we teach our classes these improvements. Where large doses are best our students are taught to use them with skill; where large doses are injurious they are taught to recognize the cases, and avoid their use.

The medicine of the present and of the future will be small doses of
