Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...not concede us a satisfactory number, but that they are liberal enough, in that hot-bed of allopathic bigotry, to even recognize us at all is a concession of some magnitude. A short time since eclectics had no recognition in Texas and a number of other States. Eminent respectability and success have enabled us to obtain this high position in the Nation, and among the people. We have been enabled to live down the calumnies heaped upon us for years by bigoted and jealous rivals, and reach this high plane of eminent respectability and success by being absolutely independent as a school of medicine. Both profession and people should be made to realize, if they do not already do so, that, although the word " eclectic" literally means " to choose." or " to select," we are not, as a school, simply judicious rejectors, or arrogant choosers of other people's good things. There never was a time in the history of electicism when it did not have its own materia medica--its own line of remedies. At first they were crude and imperfect; to day they are unequaled and unrivaled. It is through the administration of these distinctively eclectic remedies that our physicians have attained to this unusually prominent professional excellence, that is so soon recognized by everybody with whom they come in contact. It is only through these eclectic remedies and our methods of administering them that we have deserved to exist as a separate school of medicine, and our future existence should depend upon our inclination and ability to maintain them against all competition, and to further the work we have so well begun.
