came in on Monday night's train to
attend the second quarterly meeting
of the Modoc County. Calif., and
Lake County, Oregon Medical Asso
ciation, which was organized at Al-!

The organization of this society
should be of great benefit to the two
counties. In communities such as
our. widely removed by lack of
transportation facilities from the
centers of population, it is exceed
inglyt difficult for members of the
medical profession to aCilitate them
selves with other organizations and
4t is u decided advance for the, gen
eral health of the communities for
our physicians to get together iu the
dissemination or information for the
prevention of disease, in mutual In
terchange of ideas and experkmce
for the relief and cure of the ailing;
in eliminating friction from the deal
ings of the doctors, one with another
and iu upholding the highest ideals
of honor and square dealing with
each other as well as the public at
The organization and maintenance
of local Medical Associations is of
vast importance to the profession in
asmuch -as the American Medical As

and delegates from the smaller or

sicians from Modoc were able to at
tend the meeting as It was hoped
that all the physicians from the two
counties could participate. The en
