New York, June 16. There are
two stories current in regard to the
heavy medical bills wh'ich are being
incurred by General Grant Four
very cosHy physicians have been .em
ployed, almost conturscusiy, aurtng
the last six months. It is customary
in this city for practitioners to return
bills to their regular patient on the
1st of Juno for the preceding half
year's services. A careful estimate of
the aggregate four accounts gives
S-i0,O0U as the sum which, judging by
tho quantity and quality of the work
done by the four doctors, must have
been demanded at tho beginning of
the present month. Dr. Douglas
now lives in tho house, neglecting
his other practice altogether, and
Drs. Sands, Shrady and Barker have
averaged two calls per day, counting
in the days which they have devoted
entirely to tho case. All are special
ists accustomed to largo feos. The
suggestion that they aro content to
accept tho incidental advertising in
lieu of cash remuneration is not tena
blo, because the oaso has not, on tho
whole, mado good a reputation for
the two whoso status could bo raised
by connection with a celebrated case.
One story is that George W. Childs
paid the bills. Ho was here about
tho 1st of Juno, a visitor at tho Grant
honse. His intimacy with the general
is well known, and his liberality is
proverbial. Childs has since declined
to tell whetrerho met any or all of
the medical expenses. A second ex
planation is that tho physicians have
taken in payment orders on Webster
& Co., the firm which is to publish
Grant's book. Tho income from that
source is bound to bo large. Mark
Twain, a member of tho firm of "Web
ster & Co., says that ho does not per
sonally know of any such arrango
ment, but that his assent or that of
his partner would not ba essential.
It is certain that the goneral's pres
ent resources yield only S27,000 a
year, which would barely cover the
ordinary expenses of his household
leaving nothing for such immenso doc
toring bills as must have been now
Tho reason why Dr. Douglas is
kept on guardjiight and day is the
patient's expectation that he will
eventually choke to death and his
wish to have expert help at hand
While ho sleeps, sitting in a chair, un
able to lie down for hours, Douglas
occupies a bed in an adjoining room,
with a bell so hung that a pull by a
cord at Grant's hand will awaken him.
This precaution is in addition to the
watching of the negro attendant
Through his illness General Grant
has exhibited those traits of charac
ter for which ho has been noted. He
has been patient, plucky, strong in
pain and ever true to his manv
friends. The general has perfect con
fidence in his physicians, and is as
passive in their hands as a child. He
takes great interest in tho pathology
of his disease and discusses it freely.
Dr. Douglas is at tho houso eery
day. His attention is not solely of a
professional kind, for ho has formed
a real affection for his patient, which
is entirely reciprocated. He treats
tho general with distinguished con
sideration, and is extremely carefu
of his feelings. Notwithstanding
this the general is convinced that he
will never get well. Colonel Grant
knows it likewise, but since tho late
favorable chango in her husbands
condition Mrs. Grant entertains a
hope of his full restoration to health.
The general himself said tho night of
his great trial, "Let mo die," but
since ho has grown stronger ho longs
for his health, although wearily shak
ing his head when asked about his re
It is recounted that onco during
his illness tho general imagined him
self in command ot his old army
again. Ho arose, stood up and looked
back ns if his men were behind him.
He raised his hand as it it wore a
sword and said: "Come now, for
ward march, steady." At that mo
ment ho foil back upon bis bed, as if
in groat pain, put his hand quickly
to his face and exclaimed: "I have
been struck on the cheek by a shell-"
AVhen the press was charging the
physicians with having made a wrong
diagnosis tho general never wavered
in his confidence in their skill. He
said: "Tho greatest battle I ever won
I was placed under arrest for. It was
at Fort Donelson."
Don't Eet In a Hurry.
A health journal says that people
ought to take three-quarters of an
hour for dinner. This is well if thero
is enough dinner to hold out so long.
Tho penalty for hurrying meals, as
most people do, is a grievous attack
of dyspepsia. In such a case you
will have to resort to Brown's Iron
Bitters for euro, as did Mr. J. B.
Pinkstone, Shortor's Depot, Ala., who
writes, "I found relief in Brown's
