After all he is a doctor.- Which was exactly why ooL Jusl as tn ordinary matters the average physician's medical care for nis family makes the deliquent cobbler with his shoeless children seem like a patemai philanthropist- so in case of actual illness his concern and tear are magnified beyond normal proportions. I remember one time when we were married about three months, when 1 (ell and twisted my ankle. "Now took. John." 1 protested, when he insisted on an X-ray as tf 1 oad lust been pried out of a head-on collision, "it'a obviously only a simple strain. t've bar! them before. WhT do you worry about every little thing from a cut finger to a'Shaving ntclr.7" "1 suppose it's because I knc all the bizarre and incurable things In medicine," he tatd "and 1 see so much ot sickness everywhere, that I dread its happening here. Do you seeT" After ao X-ray was taken (he usually was as victorious in things of this kind as Hitler in his heyday) and he was reassured that there was no break in my bone, John simply forgot the whole matter. "Aren't you going to tape it upT" 1 asked, after a long day's limp "That's what you did to Mrs. Wilson's ankle, and" that's what the camp doctor did to me Ihe last iroe It happened." JOHN was relaxing as usual, with a medical journal, and while I questioned thir type ot literature as means ot recreation, dared oo: say so alouo 'n »new f tfae ferry Mason corpses and [ory itUetux that furnished mine. "Lei it alone.' ne grunted, without even looking up. -it'U heal up Nothing serious- Just lei K alone * The next day my ankle still bothered me a little and my wounded feelings a greal deal so I determined on a new course. Just as the last evening patient was leaving. I sal down in the waiting room, and said when John opened the door: "I'm acxt-" He looked surprised, out gallantly seized the cue. "Come right In. madame." he said professionally, and then, dropping the art. stretched and said, "Gosh I'm tired." "Not loo Bred H 1 were Mrs. Gwendolyn Xanthippyl" I hurled this oul as il it were a grand jury indictment He slopped stretching. "What's the matter?" he asked. 'My ankle hurts. 1 want .. taped, or at least 1 want a short- wave treatment like you gave Mn Wilson. It 1 were a patient I'd get onel" I said heatedly. -Well 111 be one. I'll pay you—or 'you can send the bilj to my husband!' John started to laugh. "Look, darling," he said, coming over to me. "I'd never neglect you ever 1 promise. But a short-wav< treatment al best can only givi temporary relief, say. (or a few hours or so, but that's all. Any other benefit Mrs. Wilson got wa pure psychological eflecl. Am. you cant get that since I've told you better. Now, do you understand?" Gradually, I came to accept thf doctor's ^philosophy ol persona medicine^ although 1 never liket it or wholly understood it. 1 too E greatest mystery of modern medicine, at least to me. if now people can swallow ceo or blue or green llQuldr that underneath their, fancy labels, actually coo- ain nothing but 'vitamin' B. or aspirin mixed with sugar water. and Ihen report the most aslounrt- rcartions from a totalH unconnected attack of rheumatism, :o noison Ivy But such thinking, hi our house, was lower than Benedict Amold'a.
