MEDICAL COLLEGE. The handsome and commodious Vendome Theatre, of this city, was filled to its utmost capacity at 8 P. M., on the evening of March 22, the occasion being the annual commencement of the Medical and Dental Departments of the University of Tennessee, when ninety-one young gentlemen in the Medical Department and ten in the Dental Department were to receive full parchment authority to commence their professional life and duties.

Notwithstanding the heavy down-pour of a March rain quite up to the hour for opening the exercises, the entire commodious auditorium, including the family circle and gallery, were well filled, a large proportion being composed of the fair members of creation, friends of the students and the institution, who had braved the elements in order to encourage the young gentlemen and honor the momentous occasion of their graduation by their charming smiles.

The stage, which presented a very handsome setting, decorated with palms, evergreens and potted plants and flowers, was occupied by the faculty, together with the valedictorians of the two departments. The bright lights, the brilliant appearance of the stage, and the still more brilliant array of female beauty filling the boxes and seats of the theatre, will be a pleasing picture, indellibly photographed on the memory of these young devotees of the healing art and science, to which pleasant recollections will recur again and again in the hours of midnight vigil, in lonely rides through storm and sunshine, in summer's heat and winter's cold.

The exercises were opened with prayer by Elder R. Lin Cave, pastor of the First Christian Church, of this city, who, in an impressive and eloquent manner, invoked the divine blessing on the young gentlemen who were now about to commence their professional career.

After an interlude by the orchestra Hon. W. P. Jones, M.D., President of the Faculty, then introduced Thomas R. Gayle, D.D.S., of Louisiana, who, in a scholarly and pleasing manner, delivered the valedictory on behalf of the dental graduates. It was closely listened to and highly appreciated by the audience.

Another musical selection from the orchestra, and Andrew Jay Sibley, M.D., of Texas, was introduced by the President of the Faculty, and in an unusually eloquent and felicitous manner delivered the valedictory to

As the names of these gentlemen were called out by Prof. Duncan Eve, M.D., Dean of the Medical Department, each one advanced to the stage and received at the hands of Dr. Mellen, on behalf of the State University, the piece of parchment that for months past has been haunting his dreams by night and worrying his every waking thought by day. Many who had personal friends in the audience received rounds of applause as they mounted the stage.

Another musical selection was rendered by the orchestra, after which Prof. Robert B. Lees, M.D., D.D.S., and Dean of the Dental Department, proceeded to deliver the charge to the graduates of the Dental Department, admonishing them in well chosen words to continue as they had began in patient, earnest pursuit of knowledge and skill. He called attention to the fact that dentistry and dental surgery was properly recognized as one of the most important specialties of the grand and noble science of medicine, and as such required continued and persistent study ; that, while this specialty had but a recent past, its future was boundless and immeasurable for good, which could be attained only by each and every member doing his best from his entrance into the profession until he “crossed over the river to rest under the shade of the trees.” We can but regret that time and space prevent our giving, if not in full, a more extended abstract of his excellent and appropriate address.

Prof. J. Bunyan Stephens, M.D., then delivered the charge to the graduates of the Medical Department. This we are also gratified to place in full before our readers as the first article of our Original Department in this number. It is needless to say anything in regard to how it was delivered or how it was received, more than that this well known pulpit orator and medical teacher was in his most happy vein, and in a satisfactory manner impressed some very important truths upon the minds of not only the graduates but the entire audience.

After another appropriate musical rendition, Prof. W. P. Jones, M.D., President of the Faculty, proceeded to award the following prizes :

Medical.—First Honor, Paul F. Eve Faculty Medal, James G. Poe, Kentucky.

Faculty Second Honor, J. Crum Epler, Illinois.

Faculty Third Honor, C. H. Blickensderfer, Missouri.
Special Medal, Surgical Laboratory, W. R. Sifford, Illinois.

Dental.—First Honor, Robert Russell Faculty Medal, Wm. L. Brown, Tennessee.

Faculty Second Honor (Morrison Bros.), C. H. Risser, Indiana.
Faculty Third Honor, T. R. Gayle, Louisiana.

Hospital Appointments.- Interne at City Hospital, J. Crum Epler, Illinois.

Interne at St. Margaret's Hospital, W. R. Sifford, Illinois.
Interne at County Asylum Hospital, J. J. Arendale, Tennessee.
İnterne at Good Shepherd Hospital, R. H. Tatum, Tennessee.

Quite a number of beautiful flowers handsomely arranged were distributed to certain members of the graduating classes who had friends in the city anxious to add to the laurels already won.

Prof. Duncan Eve, M.D., announced to the Tennessee members of the graduating class that by going at once to the Nicholson House, at the close of the exercises, they would find representatives of the Tennessee State Board of Medical Examiners in attendance, ready to register their diplomas and issue them license to practice in this State. He farther stated that the State Board of Dental Examiners would be in session in this city on Monday, March 26.

Rev. R. Lin Cave then pronounced the benediction, and at about 10:30 P.M. the well pleased audience and happy and joyous' newly fledged Doctors of Medicine and Dentistry slowly filed out of the building; good-byes were said, and active preparations for departure were set on foot by those 'eager and anxious to rejoin their loved family circle with the honors they had won at so excellent an institution of professional learning.

The next course of instruction will begin Monday, Oct. 1, 1894.

THE DOCTOR AND HIS FEE. This is the title of a very excellent editorial in the Chicago Clinical Review, of January last. It comes with such force, and is so in accordance with facts, its suggestions and views are so apropos that we give our readers the benefit of it almost in full in our Editorial Department. It is something well worth reading by every physician in this State-yes, of reading carefully—and, not only that, but of observing as well. Even with the most rigid observance of the reasonable business details suggested there is an ample field for “sweet charity" left. Physicians and surgeons who do 80 much work, who give so much of their time, skill and experience in case after case in which there is no hope of fee or reward on this side of the great beyond, owe it to themselves, their families and their patients to exact in a true business manner a reasonable compensation for their services in all cases where compensation is possible. It is but right, the laborer is worthy of his hire,” to use an old and trite quotation that may stick a little in throats of some of the would-be dilettanti in the profession,
