WOMAN AS TiIITSIOIAN.
Moonlitlan'S Iliagazino . kas a Tong and ex
cellent article on women as physieinns,from
which we copy the following answers to
some objections often urged against them :
The important. part of tho question is that
which relates to the life of practice as a phy
sician. Are women strong enough for that?
In the absence
,of experience we can but,
suggest a few considerations which tend to
reassure us on this point. It may .be no
ticed in the first place, with regard to Oval
cal strength, that wherever it is needed in
other callings women aro not, as a rule!
incapacitated by the want of it. A physi
cian would not need to be so strong as a
nurse, a washerwoman, or a charwoman.
She might be much weaker physically than
the woman who stands behind the counter or
who does needlework for( fourteen hours.
daily. Moreover, the demand for both
muscular and nervous strength comes grad
ually to a physician. !_During the first few
years of professional life ha is 10.:*nver
whelmed with work, and he has time to be
come accustomed to a fair amount of exer
tion. When in really full practice, ho can
afford to spare himself much fatigue, as for
instance by keeping a carriage instead of us
ing cabs or walking. Tho same is true of
night work. Inexperienced people are apt
to think that, because a doctor is sometimes
called up, he scarcely over gots a good
night's rest ; whereas the truth probably in
that a physician in even I,lrgo practice is not
often called up more than once or twice i i i n
the week.:' One piece of evickence of some
importance may be mentioned upon this
point.. Many of the midwives employed by
the Royal Maternity Charity have an amount
of practice which, in the nutriber of cases,
greatly exceeds that of any physieinn-prac
tieing among the wealthy classes. Ono of
these women, whose skill and. kindness ren
der her a great favorite with her patients; is
also employed by the Marylebono dispen
sary. She attends as many as nine hundred
patients annually—J. e.,.an average of about
three every kwenty-four hours . exclusive of
Sundays. " She not only goes ; to each pa
,tient's house, when first strncined, am acts
ns.both doctor and nurse ; but after,' the
birth'of the child sho visits _and attends to
, the two patients for several days. She weber
expects to pass a night in peace; sho walks
to all her patients; .she has been thus em
ployed for several years, and she is et the
prent time a remarkably healthy and vi-,
go ous woman.
DREAD OF SUDDEN DRAM—Moro is an al
most universal dr ead
, of, sudden death. Nor
can wo wonder at this dread, when we con
sider how momentous an event death is, and
how solemn the realities it involves. But
after all does it not spring—does it not re
ceive force and point—mainly in the con
sciousness that _ we have no habitual
prbparation for death, and the • consequent
"something after death ?" DoCs it not
spring from a consciousness that we are
letiving Something undone, which we would
wish to repair in a dying hour? And yet,
how rare arc the instances in which death
does not come suddenly! Down to the last
hour off' life, and almost to the last gasp,
the waiting consumptive will repeat his oft
told, delusive story of "being a little bet-
V. 1.," thus hugging the delusive hope of life
till its last sand is already falling from life's
emptied glass. Who of us will die when,
and where, •we Suppose ? Probably not
one: Tho fact is, death' comes suddenly to
all. It breaks in 'upon all the' unfinished
plans of life, and . hurries the victim away.
No startling adlionition breaks upon the
