To fiim Who Reads The Bool 

Every active, living body has a pulse — it is the sign of life — and truly the students of Rush form 
an active, living body, and truly this their PULSE is a sign of their activity and life 

The pulse is an indication, too, of the conditions of this life, and should, if properlv taken, show the 
strength or the weakness of the body. 

So, reader, take the PULSE of Rush, but take it as carefully and consideratelv as v<m would another 
pulse. Mark where it shows strength and where it shows weakness; and weigh carefully the truths it 
ma)' indicate to you. And should the result displease or disappoint you, remember the Pulse is not to 
blame, it is but the faithful indicator of conditions. Correct the conditions, then will the Pulse be cor- 
rected and onby then. Direct no criticism for or against the Pulse — criticise, praise or correct the con- 
ditions it may show to exist in this great body of Rush, in its teachers, alumni and students. 

Note in this Pulse the powerful vis a tergo of a single class that numbers more than the entire roll of 
most schools, note the assistance given to the circulation by a considerate Faculty and a generous and ap- 
preciative body of students and alumni. Note too that it heats like any well regulated pulse, that it beats 
all sister medical schools, for they have vet to put forth such as this. 

In an adult body we like to have the pulse slow and regular, — perhaps once a year may seem a trifle 
slow, but for an adult medical college, the presence of the Pulse regularly once a year will show a condi- 
tion of life and activity. Senility, we do not fear, but on the contrary we bespeak the active, strong, 
healthy life that each succeeding Pulse will show. 

he history of this institution is closely associated with the history of Chicago and the great Northwest. At the 
time when Rush Medical College obtained its charter, Chicago was a city of scarcely 3, 800 inhabitants, and to-day. after a 
lapse of half a century, the college is the second in size in this country, and Chicago is the second city. 

The name was bestowed in honor of Benjamin Rush, a patriot and physician (if the time of the Revolution. The 
founder was the eminent Daniel Brainard, who was I lie firs; President.and also first Professor of Anatomy and Surgery. 
Daniel Brainard was born May 15, 1812. at Whitesborough, Oneida county. New York. He received the advantages of 
the academy of that town and commenced the study of his profession therein l s i'!U>iit soon went to Rome. N.Y.. where he 
had the benefit of lectures. After sometime spent in study at Rome he took two courses of lectures, one at the Medical 
College in Fairfield, and the other at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, where he graduated in the spring of 
1834. Returning to Whitesborough. he remained two years with his former preceptor, nominally in practice, but spend- 
ing most of his time in the study of the Latin and French languages anil in professional teaching'. In the spring of 
1836 he gave a course of lectures on anatomy and physiology in the Oneida Institute, and in the summer of the same year 
moved to Chicago; after practicing for three years he wejit to Paris, where he spent two years in study. Very soon 
after coming to Chicago he conceived tne idea of founding a medical school there, but for some years was unable to carry 
out his plans, principally for lack of means. The charter for the new college was obtained in 1837. but for six long 
years Dr. Brainard and his friends waited before a beginning could be made. For some time he was editor of the Chicago 


What forethought could have enabled Dr. Brainard to see in a small frontier town, poverty stricken, and ready to 
sink into the mud of its own sloughs, the beginning of the great western metropolis, it is impossible to say. Chicago 
at that time certainly seemed an unpromising location for a college, not only on account of the small number of inhabit- 
ants, but also on account of the lack of improvements. There were no railroads entering the city — not even a good wagon- 
road. But two bridges, small and shaky, spanned the then narrow creek, and sloughs and quagmires were common in 
different parts of the town. The unpaved streets were knee deep in sand and mud, and uneven wooden sidewalks, sinking 
in the water, failed to protect the feet of pedestrians. 

Two stages a week arrived Jrom the east with passengers and mail, and as many departed. At long intervals 
vessels entered the little harbor. The first newspaper had just been established — the Chicago Democrat. 

Go back with me in fancy to Dec. 4. 1843, to the practical beginning of our college. In a small clapboard building 
on Clark street, near the center of the little city, twenty-two students gathered to hear the first introductory lecture in 
the new school which then had but four professors. Though the building was but the rude one occupied as an office by 
Dr. Brainard; though the students were but poorly prepared for the complex study of medicine: though the location was 
but a little frontier town built on a low prairie, those men had faith in themselves and in the location that fifty years 
has shown was not misplaced. 

With no hospital, clinics, laboratory, or apparatus, the work of teaching, as well as of learning, must have been ex- 
ceedingly difficult. The students were advised to bring a text-book on the subjects taught in the college, and from 
these they were supposed to study and learn what they did not learn from the lecturers. The first prospectus contained 
these words: ••The superior facilities for medical instruction in Chicago cannot be denied by anyone acquainted with 
the towns in this region. The Trustees have determined to lay the foundations of a medical college which shall be per- 
manent, and will not fail to carry out these objects to the utmost of their ability." 

Prof. Brainard said in his closing words at the introductory lecture: "We believe that the school we this day 
open is destined to be ranked among the permanent institutions of the state. It will pass in time into other and better 
hands; it will live on, identified with the interests of a great and prosperous city." How prophetic of the future as time 
has revealed it! 

The Faculty consisted of Daniel Brainard, Professor of Anatomy and Surgery; J. V. Z. Blaney, Professor of Chem- 
istry and Materia Medica: John McLean; Professor of Theory and Practice of Medicine: Dr. Knapp. Professor of Ob- 
stetrics and Diseases of Women and Children. Dr. Davisson was Prosector to the Professor of Anatomy. This, though 
appearing to us a very meagre teaching force, was the largest, and indeed the only corps of medical teachers then in 
Chicago. One degree was conferred at the close of the first session, thai on William Butterfield. 


Iii the .summer of the following year. Is44. a college building was erected at the southeast corner of Indiana 
Street and Dearborn Avenue, on a lot donated to the new institution by some public-minded citizens of the "North Side." 
Here were held the first clinics, and as time passed, apparatus, instruments, and means of illustration were procured. 
In the third announcement this was presented as an extra inducement for students to come to the new college: 
"Those who intend to study medicine are informed that during the past term one nasal polypus, three tumors, and two 
tonsils were removed; four operations for strabismus, one operation on the lid. and one on the lachrymal apparatus, 
were performed before the class. With these advantages, the Medical College at Chicago offers, it is believed, induce- 
ments to western students equal to those of any other school." 

There was. even then, a very keen competition from rival institutions, and we hear of free transportation being 
offered students by a La Porte institution to draw students from Rush Medical College. This competition, however, 
soon subsided. To the students of the present day, these words from a very early circular may prove interesting: 
"Good boarding, with room, fuel, lights and attendance may be obtained at prices varying from $1.50 to $2. 25 a week.' 
In the same circular we also find this statement: "The Faculty will receive promissory notes in payment of fees. 
Those who pay cash will be favored by a discount of twenty per cent.'' 

Students, at their option, could take tickets for work in practical anatomy, and for clinical instruction in the re- 
cently opened hospital. Two years of practice were considered equivalent to one term of the two required for grad- 
uation. By looking over the old catalogue, it may be seen that the greater number of the students of those days came 
from the state of Illinois, some from the territories of Wisconsin and Iowa. 

The mode of travel was by horseback, by wagon, or on foot, no rail-roads having entered Chicago at that time. The 
roads were almost impassable and travelers found no small difficulty in going from place to place in the 
wet seasons of the year. The Faculty arranged the time of opening and closing the term so. as they announced, trie 
students should have "the benefit of good roads'' when they came to Chicago in the fall, and when they returned home in 
the spring. 

For some years the hope was indulged in by the Trustees, of having free tuition to the students of medicine, and 
with this end in view the price of the general ticket was reduced from $60. to $25. It was hoped at the time tnat the 
change would enable the Faculty to secure more regular attendance of the students for the full term of sixteen weeks, 
and would enable them to take the practical courses also. After a trial of two years the plan was abandoned, and the 
fees, as well as the requirements for graduation, were increased. 

The first student to sign the list of matriculates He graduated in 1845, and became an Army 
Surgeon at Fort Snelling. Locating a claim of eighty acres where Minneapolis now stands, he practiced in that city until

his death. Dr. Ephriam Ingals graduated in 1847, and for many years has been connected with the college as Profes- 
sor of Materia Medica, and also Professor of Medical Jurisprudence, and is now one of the Trustees of the Corporation. 

In 1855 the old building was remodeled and enlarged so as to accommodate two hundred and fifty students. This 
was not large enough and Dr. Brainard and Ids colleagues considered the plan of erecting a new building in 1866. Dr- 
Brainard fell a victim to the scourge of Asiatic cholera that visited the city in the autumn of 1866. He died October 10, 
of that year, and in him the college lost one of its most energetic promotors. In bis own words, the college he founded 
passed into '-other hands."' but his name will be forever linked with its history. He was succeeded by Dr. J. V. Z. 
Blaney, as President. 

The new building was completed and dedicated in 1867. This was a commodious structure located at the southeast 
corner of Dearborn and Indiana streets, and was well supplied with the appliances necessary for illustration and 

Chicago at this date was a prosperous and rapidly growing city, and its advantages as a place for a Medical College 
were becoming apparent. Several hospitals, dispensaries, and infirmaries were established in various parts of the citA 
that gave excellent opportunity for clinical study. 

With a new building, well equipped, and a large attendance constantly increasing, the future prospects of the in- 
stitution were indeed bright, and for a few years everything was prosperous. Dark days, however, were just ahead, and 
one of the greatest disasters of modern times Avas to make itself felt. The great fire of 1871, that well nigh destroyed 
the city, laid the new college building in ashes, and the Trustees saw the accumulated work of years swejDt away in 
a few hours. The future was then very da.rk, as the Trustees were without money, without a college building, with 
nothing but their determination to perpetuate the institution; they set about the task of getting another building, and in a 
few years arose the new building that still remains. 

A few days after the fire temporary quarters were secured and here the students assembled through the winter 
of 1871 — 72. This was in the amphitheater of Cook County Hospital, corner of Eighteenth and Arnold streets, and 
served until a rude structure could be built in a corner of the hospital grounds. This building, known as the "Col- 
lege under the sidewalk," though erected at a cost of only §3,500., was the best building the Trustees could afford at 
the time. It served for four years as a college home, and then the present edifice was completed and ready for 
occupancy . 

In 1871 President Blaney retired and was succeeded in office by Prof. J. W. Freer. J. V. Z. Blaney was born at New 
Castle, Delaware, May 1, ls20. At the age of eighteen he graduated from Princeton College, later in medicine at 
Philadelphia. In the fall of 1813 he came to Chicago where he had an extensive and select practice for many years 


During the War of the Rebellion he served as surgeon with the rank of Major of Artillery. For many years he was 
Professor of Chemistry and Pharmacy in the college, and was President from the time of Dr. Brainard's death to the time 
of his retirement in 1872. He died Dec. 11. 1*74. 

The present building was erected during the Centennial year. and was dedicated mi Wednesday evening. Oct. 4. 1876. 
to "the quest of knowledge that may relieve suffering and prolong lite." It is a handsome four-story brick building at 
the northeast corner of West Harrrison and Wood streets. It is fitted up with two lecture rooms, office, and numerous 
clinic and waiting rooms. The Central Free Dispensary is located on part of the first floor. 

Around the new building have grown up the large Cook County Hospital, built in 1876; the Presbyterian Hospital, 
opened for patients in 1884, directly connected with the college building; and the E\-e and Far Infirmary. The clinical 
advantages in this part of the city are unsurpassed as is shown by the fact that five medical colleges have been es- 
tablished in the vicinity since Rush Medical College was changed to this location. The Illinois Nurses' Training 
School has also been established in the vicinity within recent years. 

In the year 1*77 Rush was again to mourn the loss of her President. J. W. Freer. He was born in the 
state of New York in 1816. After attending the common school he entered the high school at the age of fifteen, and 
at the age of eighteen became a pupil of medicine in the office of Dr. L. C. Paine, then of Clyde. New York, and in or- 
der to pay his way attended the doctor's small drug store. In his nineteenth year he came to Chicago where for a few 
weeks he remained in a dry-goods store and then located a claim on Calumet River, where he was taken ill and returned 
to the city. His parents moved to Wilmington. 111., in 1836. and he remained at that place engaged in agricultural pur- 
suits for ten years. During this time he continued his studies as time and circumstances permitted. After the death 
of his wife in ls4r>. he determined to pursue his medical course: and mounting a load of wheat, he drove to the 
village of Chicago, saw Dr. Brainard. and was admitted to that eminent physician's office as a student. He met Dr. 
Epliriam Ingals. then a medical student, and here began the friendship that lasted through his life. He graduated in 
1849 and began practice with Dr. John A. Kennicott. of Cook county. In 1850 he was appointed Demonstrator of 
Anatomy. and in L855 Professor of Descriptive Anatomy. On the reorganization of the college in 1859, he was transferred 
to the Chair of Physiology and Microscopic Anatomy, and on the retirement of Professor Blaney in 1872 was made 
President. After his death in 1*77. Professor J. A. Allen succeeded to the presidency of the institution. 

During the seventeen years following the completion of the present building the college enjoyed a period of success 
that it had well earned. Able teachers drew to the school a fair share of students who stayed lor two years and went out to 
practice their profession. It was found that the rule of allowing students to complete the course with two year's at- 
tendance in college, and one year of outside study needed changing, as with the x^rogress of medical science three years 


was not ample time to adequately prepare for the increasing demands of the profession. Accordingly, in 1890, three year's 
attendance was required besides one year of outside study. 

It would be impracticable in a short history to mention the names of all the eminent physicians and surgeons who have 
been connected with this college since its organization. Many of its professors have had a world-wide reputation, and in 
passing over the subject mention will be made of one who was long associated with Rush, and to whose memory a 
most beautiful tablet has been lately placed on the college walls. Joseph Presley Ross came to Chicago when it was> 
as compared to the present lime, but a small town. In 1868 he became connected with the college as Professor of Clin- 
ical Medicine and Diseases of the Chest, a position that he held until shortly before his death. After the great fire Dr. 
Ross was one of the leaders in the efforts that resulted in the erection of the present County Hospital. The same fire 
laid the college building in ashes, and the same untiring worker was one of those most instrumental in re-establish- 
ing the college and procuring means to erect a new building. In spite of the demands of a very large practice, and the 
many duties devolving upon him. he devised plans for procuring a new building and. with the aid of his colleagues, in a 
few years a new building waserected and the college started on a new career of prosperity. In 1h q o— 4 the Presbyterian 
Hospital was built, of which he was the founder, having himself given five thousand dollars toward the undertaking 
and the Faculty of Rush Medical College more than fifteen thousand dollars. Throughout his whole life he was en- 
gaged in undertakings that were for the good of humanity. and when lie died in June. 1890, the world lost a benefactor. 

The course of study as changed in 1890 included some studies not taught prior to this time and allowed more 
time on all the branches taught. The study of medicine is much more complex now than when, on the rude benches of 
the first college building, the students gathered to hear the first lectures given in the institution. Volumes are now 
written on the surgery of parts then never invaded by the surgeon's knife, whole libraries on the then unheard of germ 
theory of disease, and in adding more time for the course in medicine, the college was keeping abreast of the progress of 
the times. The army of unprepared doctors is unfortunately too large, and no good school can afford to recruit the ranks 
of these premature aspirants to physicians' honors. In spite of the increased demands and incidentally the increased 
expense, the number of students has continued to grow larger from year to year, till in point of numbers, as we 
have said, Rush stands second to but one college in this country. 

In 1890, Death laid his hand on one who. for over a quarter of a century, had been intimately associated with the col- 
lege, first as Professor of Medicine, and for thirteen years as its President. Thirty classes had been taught by. and 
had listened with delight to the stories and anecdotes of "Uncle Allen." Beginning the practice of medicine in his 
young manhood, he devoted a busy life to the work of his profession. He became associated with Rush in 1859 as 
Professor of Theory and Practice of Medicine. 


The large and increasing attendance suggested to the Trustees the necessity of providing more room ana increased 
teaching facilities. The college had outgrown its building and another must be erected; accordingly the plans for a 
laboratory building, on the south side of Harrison street, opposite the college building, were completed. The erec- 
tion of this building was begun during the early part of 1*98, and on Commencement Day, March 2-4, the corner- 
stone was laid with simple ceremony. Professor J. B. Hamilton and Professor De Laskie Miller making the ad- 
dresses on the occasion. 

The new building is a substantial five- story structure, built of brick with stone facing. It contains large and finely - 
appointed chemical, bacteriological, physiological, and histological laboratories. The rooms for the practical study of 
anatomy are located on the fifth floor and are large and well lighted. Four large recitation rooms are located on the 
fourth floor, where also is the very interesting museum belonging to the college. At the beginning of the session 
of 1893-94 the new building was used, though some little time elapsed before the laboratories were ready for use with 
all their equipments. Exactly fifty years after the assembling of twenty- two students to hear the first lecture in the 
college, several hundred students with their friends assembled at the dedicatory exercises of the new building. Dec. 4. 1893. 
At these exercises, which were held in the upper amphitheatre of the college building. Professor Lyman gave an in- 
teresting dedicatory address. and President Coulter, of Lake Forest University, an aisle address on the subject. -'The 
Modern Laboratory." These exercises marked the completion of a great undertaking — the erection of a laboratory 
costing over ninety-five thousand dollars, more than sixty thousand of which was donated by the Faculty of the college. 

Beginning with the session of 1^93 94 the course includes three years of eight months each. Heretofore the 
year has included six months attendance, or during the winter term, and a two-months' spring term, during which the 
attendance was optional with the students. Not yet satisfied, the Faculty have decided that. beginning with the next ses- 
. sion. the course shall include four years of eight months each attendance at college. Students who have taken four- 
year courses at literary colleges, and others who have made necessary preparation, will be admitted to the second, or 
sophmore year, and be permitted to graduate at the end of three full courses of lectures. 

The science of medicine is making rapid advances, and in order to gain even a fair knowledge of it the time for 
study is being lengthened in the leading colleges of the country. Of the one hundred and forty eight medical schools 
existing at the present time in the United States and Canada, eighty-five now recpiire attendance upon three or more 
courses of lectures before graduation, as against twenty-two that had this requirement in 1882. Some are adopting the 
four- year course, and this college, ever striving for the best, adds this requirement of the coming student. 

Beginning' fifty years ago with twenty-two students and four professors. Rush Medical College to-day has over sixty 
professors and instructors, and over seven hundred and fifty students. The improvements in the buildings and course of 
study are to be continued still further, and the college will be kept where she belongs — in the front rank of medical 
colleges in this country, 3Q

De Xasfcie flDUler. 

De Laskie Miller was born in the state of New York, May 29. 1818. His early education was acquired in the 
district school, which he attended during the winter terms, and was employed on the farm during' the summer seasons 
until he was about seventeen years old. He then resolved to begin the study of medicine, and to enable him to carry out 
the determination he taught school during the winter for four years, and was engaged as a clerk in a country store and 
post-office during the summers intervening, utilizing the time which remained at his disposal in reading medical works and 
writing to his friend and preceptor. Dr. Thomas G. Catlin. who. besides being an amiable gentleman and poet, was a 
skillful physician. His first course of lectures was taken at the Albany Medical College. 1840-41. His second course 
was attended in GenevaMedical College, where he graduated in 1842. 

After practicing ten years in the east he located in Chicago in the fall of 1852, and became actively engaged in 
practice, and in teaching in Rush Medical College. 

The Rev. Dr. Robert H. Clarkson. rector of St. James Church, afterwards Bishop of Nebraska, organized the first 
general hospital in Chicago, which was located at 112 Ohio street, in 1854. Dr. Miller was appointed its physician and 
surgeon . 

Some of the other official appointments filled by the Doctor are the following: President of the Chicago Medical 
Societ3', 1856; Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children. Rush Medical College. 1859. which position he 
held until 1889, when he was elected Emeritus Professor: President of the Gynaecological Society. 1881: Consulting 
Physician of the Home of the Friendless; Consulting Obstetrician to the Michael Reese Hospital. Obstetrician to Cook 
County Hospital; Consulting Physician to the Hospital for Incurables; Obstetrician to St. Luke's Hospital; Obstetrician 
to the Presbyterian Hospital; member of the American Medical Association; member of the Seventh International Medi- 


cal Congress, London, 1883 ; Consulting Physician to the Woman's Hospital, Chicago; President of the obstetric sec- 
tion of the Ninth International Medical Congress, Washington, D. C. . 1887; with Professor Ephraim Ingals, editor of 
the Chicago Medical Journal, two years; life member of the British Gynaecological Society, London: member of the 
Chicago Medico-Legal Society; President of the Board of Trustees of Rush Medical College, 1892. 

In his personal interviews with medical students he has always discouraged their usual haste in obtaining the degree 
of M. D., and urged them to take all the time possible before graduating, regardless of the requirements of the college, 
that they might become the better qualified for practice when they should enter the profession. 

Some of the Doctor's medical friends may be interested to know that lie is a Mason, and has received the Knights 
Templar degree of the York rite, and the 33rd degree of the Supreme Council of the Scottish rite. 

Epbraim Ungate. 

The ancestors of Ephraim Ingals, M. D., came from England to America in 1628, and were among the first settlers of 
Lynn. Mass. He was born in Pomfiet, Connecticut, May 26, 1823. When fourteen years old he came to Illinois, where 
he has always since resided. He received a limited literary and scientific education at an academy at Princeton, 111., and 
Mt. Morris Seminary, and two years in the Illinois College. While not thus engaged, and for one year while teaching, 
he worked on a farm. When twenty-one years old he commenced the study of medicine, and entered Rush Medical Col- 
lege in 1845, taking his degree in February, 1847. He practiced medicine ten years in Lee county, Illinois. In 1857 he 
removed to Chicago, where he has since been in continual practice. Soon after coming to Chicago he became associated 
with Professor Daniel Brainard in the editorship of the Chicago Medical Journal, and when later Professor Brainard re- 
tired from the Journal, Dr. Ingals continued in the same position in company with Professor De Laskie Miller. In 1859 he 
was appointed to the Chair of Materia Medica and Medical Jurisprudence in Rush Medical College, and in the subsequent 
twelve years he failed but once to fill his lecture hour. During this time he took an active interest in the erection of the new 
college building at the corner of Dearborn and Indiana streets, which was burned with the city in 1871. Just before this ca- 
lamity he had resigned his Professorship and was made Emeritus Professor to the same chair. He has been President of 
the Illinois State Medical Society, and has served three terms as President of the Chicago Medical Society. He is a 
member of the American Medical Association, the Illinois State Medical Society, .the Chicago Medical Society, and is 
Consulting Physician to the Presbyterian Hospital. He has always, by word and pen, advocated a higher grade of medi- 
cal education, and a strict observance of the code of medical ethics. Though not now in active professional work, he is 
not less active to these interests than he has ever been.

Zbc Hlumnt Hssociation of IRusb flfteotcal College. 

By John Edwin Rhodes. A. M., M. D. 

n 1861 an invitation was extended to the Alumni 
of Rush Medical College to meet in Chicago prior 
to the time appointed for the Meeting of the 
American Medical Association. This invitation 
was afterwards recalled, as it was not considered a 
favorable time for such an organization as was contem- 
plated, and it was deferred "till other and better times 
should come when Alma Mater could greet her Alumni un- 
der happier auspices. When White Winged Peace came 
again to the distracted country, then would be time enough 
to cultivate all peaceful associations." 

Nothing was done toward the organization of an Asso- 
ciation after this until 1867, when the new College Building, 
corner of Indiana Street and Dearborn Avenue, was opened. 
An invitation was given the Alumni to meet in the new 
building at 10:30 o'clock A. M., Wednesday, October 2, 
for the formation of an Association. ' -It was intended that 
the new college should be a Mecca to which year by year 
the Alumni of 'Old Rush' should gladly come." 

In accordance with the invitation a meeting was held at 
the new college building, October 2, in the lecture room. 
J. Blount, M. D., of Rockford. was made Chairman of the 

meeting, and C. B. Reed, M. D.. of Hampshire, Secretary.

son, Coleman, and Hunt was appointed to draw up a Con-

by Alumni from all over the land, proved your devotion: 
when our enemies said Rush College was ruined by the fire,

strange to you, but we hope you may, at least once a year, 
come to worship at the shrine of Aesculapius, in this, our

John Edwin Rhodes was born at Bath. Summit County, Ohio, February 12, 1851. Shortly afterward his father 
moved to South Bend, Ind. In 1856 the family moved overland, with teams and covered wagons, as there were few 
railroads in those days, to Webster City, la., where he attended the public schools and grew up with the country. When 
sixteen years of age his parents returned to South Bend, and from thence to Belvidere, 111., in both of which places he 
attended the public schools. In 1870, after having taught a public school for a term, he came to Chicago, and took a 
full classical course in the University of Chicago, graduating in 1876. He then removed to California, married in 1877, 
and after a fine business experience with the large hardware firm of Huntington Hopkins & Company, he returned to 
Chicago in 1883, for a course in Rush Medical College, graduating as Valedictorian in the class of 1886. After several 
months of European travel he became associated with Dr. E. Fletcher Ingals. Dr. Rhodes has been connected with the 
Northwestern University Woman's Medical School for five years, and is Professor of Physical Diagnosis and Clinical 
Medicine. In Rush he is Lecturer on Diseases of the Throat and Chest. In 1893 he was elected Secretary and Treasur- 
er of the Alumni Association, and through his efficient and energetic efforts the membership is now about five hundred, 
the largest in the history of the Association. He is a member of the Chicago Medical Society, the State Medical Society, 
the American Medical Association, etc. He confines his practice very largely to that branch of the professional work 
in which he is teaching, diseases of the throat, nose, and chest.

Newton P. Holden, M. D., '46. was born in Eroton, New Hampshire, June 20, 1830. He took the first three courses 
ever given at this college, graduating in a class of ten, in 1847. He, with his class-mates, listened to lectures held in the 
rear room of Dr. Brainard's office and in rooms at the rear of Prof. Blaney's office. The seats were rough and some- 
what destructive to broadcloth and those who could afford it bought newspapers to serve as cushions. The fraternity 
spirit predominated even in those days and five of the students of the Doctor's class organized a fraternity the pass- 
word of which was "Brainard." He began practice at Bristol, 111., but in 1873 removed to Chicago, where, in 1876 he 
became County Physician. In 1878 he removed to Frankfort, 111., and retired from actual practice. The Doctor s&ys 
that although he does not visit the college often, of its unmeasured success he is justly proud. Dr. Holden is one of 
the oldest of the Alumni of Rush.

"We quote the following from the jDen of F. M. Casal, a graduate of the class of "64. He is now, and for many years 
has been in practice in Santa Barbara, Col. Dr. Casal is an honored Alumnus and holds a high position in the medical 
profession of his adopted state. 

■•The Faculty bestowed no honorary aw r ards but seemed to have much confidence in the diurnal potency of the bread 
and butter incentive, that great vis a tergo with its clamoring demands of emptiness ever spurring one onward and 
sweeping even the medical student in its slow but steady and resistless current to the heart of successful achievement. 
There was no prize to tempt vaulting ambition. No •Laurel' at the goal of highest attainments. The greatest enconium 
one could gain was praise, praiseful words from the Dons, rare, hard to wm, but always eminently soothing and satis- 
factory to the recipients, those ancients who burned the midnight oil, who undaunted and unvanquished made the suc- 
cessful tilts at quiz, cared for no other reward."

Prom the number of illustrious members' of the class of ninety-three it is inevitable that it shall exist for all times- 
to come in the annals of history. Prom this suggestion of eternity, and from the name of a distinguished member of 
the class it may be apropos to cite an anecdote: A Priest was once asked the difference between Temptation and Etern- 
ity. His ready retort was, "The former is a If«7of the Devil, the latter is a Devil of a WeiP" This truly is a Poser. 
Early in the history of the class a clerical-looking professor in a cpiiz asked, "Is R. Lord here." Away up 4 on the 
perch a faint voice replied, "Present." 

Of course some members were wondrous wise. This is an es,SW/ («)tial 5 quality for "the best class ever graduated.'- 

1. Oil mamma! 

2. Immortality. 

3. A pun— verbicide, and how does it differ from homicide? Manslaughter is the meaning of one and man's laughter of the other, (Apologies to O. \Y. 1 1 . 1 

4. From whom else could you expect such a voice to come? 

5. Secure your salts immediately, this is but the beginning, you will faint often. 


Who can doubt the foregoing statement when the promising pathologist of the day declared staphyloraphy was the in- 
fection of the body> by staphylococci. "When the definition was made the authority probably thought the germs were 
sowed in the body. 

During our D. J. year we had a most prominent man (in appearance only) in the class, who aptly might be called a 
Dermoid Cyst — he was principally hair and teeth, but he was "excised out" at the close of the year, as were a number of 
others who left in high dudgeon at the idea of being robbed of 580.00. 7 

On our return to college the second year a feeling still rankled in the breasts of many that the Faculty was still 
chasing 8 the eighty nimble dollars which the boys had gathered together in their inside pockets. Believing that 
"united we stand, divided we fall." was a truism, the members of the glorious semi-centennial class marshalled them- 
selves under the leadership of Tuttle, and his lnight}^ lieutenant Charles Ambrose Ullrich, who so justly was elected the 
most skillful rider of the Pony during the chase for an ovine integument. A committee was appointed to meet the 
Faculty, to convince that honorable body their plea was just, that they had an inborn aversion to cross Frank's palm 
for the third time with the filthy lucre. They met the Faculty 9 — about that time their fellow students heard some- 
thins' 1 " drop. The only thing left was for the class to furl their Sayles. To this day we verily believe the class of "93 
takes no stock in arbitration as an equitable means of settling disputes. How the Faculty did over their victory. 

Time passed apace. Who will forget the glorious time at Lake Forest when the Rush boys en masse migrated to 
the cpiiet prohibition' ' town to see the 'varsity eleven fall to the tune of Hurrah for North-western? In the brave en- 
deavor to capture the great horn of the opponents the Rushmen felt there was a Hitch some- where. And what man 
will fail to recall the successful attempt Tommy the Welchman, made to shampoo the D. J.'s head with Worcestershire 
sauce. We Grant 1 - the boys had a Bari A '• along, but the Bell 1 * boys were near and tooted out a warning to Ward' ■' off 
the Grimm' i; monster, drink, so few went near Thayer. ' 1 The reason for having the 1 s (of)beer along was to fortify 
the Garrison.^ '■' Arthur, however, did have a full House.- 1 * Watts abstained from all such imbibitions for he only par- 
takes of Bromo-Cocktails. On that day he took a Knapp- ' instead. 

The greatest event of the class history was early in the third year when elections came off. Mr. Ullerick was elected 
President. After the battle was over the heavy-weight Hutchinson arose and announced he was out-classed— that in 

(i. Too bad that the only prominent appearing man should be "excised out." 

7. Nothing when you once get used to it. 

S. Two to one on the Faculty in all such races.

Id. The first "SO." 

11. And what a dry time they had.

the race for the presidency he was handicapped by his "paniculus adiposis." Hutch challenged any heavy-weight in 
the meeting to run for the coveted office and guaranteed to beat him. For the interest of sprinting Ullerick was unwill- 
ing to resign, but Hutch knew he would not— he only tried to bluff the class into giving him some office. 

In immortal recitations Paracentesis Zaun, and D-sp-re-n-a Prestley made howling successes which were unequalled 
in the traditions of the class. 

As the term drew to a close the class placed itself on record by bestowing upon the following most popular students 
the titles affixed to their names . 

Watts — always egotistical — nominated himself, and before anyone could say a word, moved and seconded that 
nominations be closed — it was carried. Thus by rapid moves worthy of Napoleon he was unanimously elected the 
homliest man in the class. However, all admitted no one-could compete with him. 

Kolar — Class Grind (A walk-over.) 

McKee— The Baby. 

Wiborg— The Tallest. 

Oatman — Most Religious. 

Leslie — Class Sport (more recently chief medicine man to Kings and Princes who must to pay him homage.) 

Sartell — Wittiest. 

Comer — The Shortest man (Never known to have a cent. ) 

Our dear land-lady's motto — Aliis Inserviendo Consumor. When translated literally means: "lam eaten out of house 
and home by feeding others."

•'Happy is the nation which has no history," has long been an aphorism among every people of the civilized world. 
If this terse adage will apply as well to medical college classes as to nations, the present senior class has surely been 
enjoying a season of unchecked beatitude; and now near the end of three years of hard study, we are about to launch 
upon the literary field a short history of a class of whom a decade hence volumes 1 could be written, — we hesitate, but 
the editors of this book cry for history. - 

Prom year to year there comes to Rush an odd assemblage of men, :i but in the fall of '91 the gathering was exceed- 
ingly strange, — in fact a conglomeration of hopes 4 and fears. 6 successes 6 and failures 7 , youth 8 and age"; yet beneath a

cold uncouth exterior 1 u there dwelled deeply seated in throbbing hearts 11 fond hopes of blood and carnage 1 2 , fame 13 
and honor 14 , skill and wisdom, usefulness 1 ■' and sagacity 16 : beneath many noble brows were throbbing brains 1 "• that 
throbbed as brains never throbbed before; glistening eyes there were that told of piercing intellects; and yet those 
dandified 1 8 dignified 1 '■' seniors called us D. J's. The opening lecture came and likewise came all of our class for we 
were determined to get all there was for our money-", and as everybody seemed to be yelling at everybody else we 
expected to acquire medical knowledge in very large chunks. 

The first year went smoothly, quickly, and while we had only four branches yet these kept us exceeding busy- 1 , and 
although we were medical students we did not have the time to revel in the medical atmosphere which seemed to engulf 
those mighty seniors and in which our friendly preceptors kindly advised us to enter as soon as we had visited the clerk, 
and tried the "stand off racket-- until Christmas." The end of the year came, and we had learned that dissecting was 
not done with a broadax. that certain chemicals would explode, and also burn clothing. During this year "Here Sah" 
first sprung into existence as a student who was always ready to answer to his name. Tensor, whose surname is Tarsi, 
covered himself with glory one bright morning by declaring vehemently that a certain muscle reached from head to 
foot and thereby demonstrated that the elasticity of the muscle was only equaled by the fragility of the gentleman's 
memory. Another man distinguished himself by calling on a druggist for Virginian Prunes. At last the examinations 
came and we learned among other things that we knew less than the professors'- 3 and had contradicted the best au- 
thors on several points. Most of us then became Middlers. 

Thus the Middle year came and likewise went. So did a number of students that tried to pass the final examina- 
tions- 4 . The faculty had taken a solemn oath at the beginning of the year to break the customary pony's back-' 5 , so 
that not even the weak might ride and so successfully was this done that many fell by the wayside. The superiority of

the class was noticed in several ways but principally by our taking the dissecting prize 36 . To be sure, one of our num- 
ber found a new tumor which he called "neuroglia,'' and one man failed to distinguish between heart-burn and heart- 
ache, but after all we failed to startle the medical world with our knowledge- 1 . 

At last we became seniors, or at least what was left of us did, for the examinations of the previous years- 8 seemed 
to have a telling effect 29 . The awe and dignity which we noticed surrounding the senior classes of previous years, al- 
lowed enough air to percolate through its tissues to save us from suffocation. The weighty intellect 3 ° which we sup- 
posed would cause our backs to bow, and our knees to smite one against the other has not caused any operation for 
genu- valgum. "Tis true a great many of us have tried to grow whiskers 3 1 and have successfully studied to look very 
wise 3 - ; but we have demonstrated that we can faint 3 3 in the maternity as well as a Freshman can notice the absence of 
hair in the eyelashes; and have seen "slivers'' as big as a tree. All these and many more will cause the faculty, as of 
yore, to say: "You are the best class," etc. etc. 34 Unusual means have been taken to make this class moral 35 if not 
brilliant. Who ever heard of "No smoking and chewing" signs 36 in Rush before we came; who ever heard of a special 
bulletin 37 for the college rules; or who ever heard of "spotters." 38 

The present senior class has witnessed the greatest advancement in medical college buildings by the erection of the 
new laboratory. Beside the facilities in practical work we have learned what great advantages the recitation system has 
over the old plan. No class has ever left this college that was more satisfied 3 9 with their work than the class of '94. 

Years will separate all of us. "We will soon be cast far and wide on the foaming billows of life 40 . We soon go to 
join our Alma Mater's working children of the world. We hope to succeed, and only by that honest, earnest work 
which brings success in the medical world. We ask your best wishss for future success, and promise that whether 
prosperity smiles upon us or adversity hovers over us, we shall recall with pleasure, the days we spent with you. both 
professors and students at Good Old Rush.

Class of 05.

A. T. Holbrook, Recording Sec'y. Clarence Swale, Corresponding Sec'y. W. S. Bellwood. Treasurer. 

W. D. Calvin, Historian. 


We came! We saw! We have met "Reverend and Grave Seniors," "D. J's." and "Dents" and they have been 
ours respectively. 

Yes we came. Guergiz from Asia Minor, Huizenga from Midway Plaisance, Sweet from the United States, 
Crowe from Hengland, Krause and "Pabst" Reynolds from Milwaukee, "I" Bertling from Germany. Swale from Scrap- 
town, Zinser from the north where people grow short, Westershulte from Deutchland, and Menefee from the Land of 
Good Husbands. 

Space will not permit inserting a biographical sketch of each and every member of the class, stating when and 
where born; married, when and how often — for we have some married men; for example, there is Montgomery (no joke 
at least M. says it is not), Field, Moore (not Kewanee), Smith, Hathaway, and others; in fact quite a number can sing 
•'Baby Mine, "The Little Ones at Home," "I've a Kid in Kalamazoo," "Rock a bye Baby." "Give me a Rest." "Hootsy 
Tootsy,'" and "Two Little Girls in Blue''. 

That our class is progressive and full of vim was demonstrated the second week we were at Rush when we aston- 
ished our predecessors by indulging in a class organization, an act unprecedented by any preceding Junior class. 
Necessity, however, has many children and at this time organization was one. Our first meeting was a sad one. as we were 
called together for a sad purpose. One of our brothers, M. J. Carter, of New Orleans, had been taken away by death. 
A letter of condolence was by instructions of the class sent to the bereaved parents. 

T. W. Bishop, "Honest Tom," was made chairman of the temporary organization and a permanent organization 
was duly formed. 


We congratulate ourselves upon having begun our course of study at Rush at this epoch making period of the in- 
stitution and thus being permitted to enjoy and to be benefited by the many improvements already enumerated by our 

Senior historian. 

The class of '95 is a unit in welcoming all innovations that have the semblance of advancement, as our motto, "'Qui 
non proficit deficit," indicates, is manifested by many members having ordered the current motto, "No smoking or 
chewing tobacco in this room," as a decoration of the walls of their respective private rooms. The publication of this, 
the first medical annual, is another manifestation that we dare cope with the new and untried. 

That embryo authors, demonstrators, and discoverers are growing in our ranks is not to be questioned. Adkinson 
has already discovered that a phosphorus match may be found in the heart of a dead subject. Porter is trying to solve 
the problem how two hearts can beat as one; he is being assisted in his experiments by a student from the Woman's 
Medical. Others are studying how to beat a flush hand of hearts. Field and his co-worker are trying to convince the 
world that there are but two semi-lunar valves. Amunson is working on fatty infiltrations. Peck and Bowers are 
wearing out brain cells in a vain endeavor that will change a red pigment to a black. 

That '95 was the finest class that ever passed within the portals of Rush was admitted by all until those assuming 
Juniors came with their unearthly yell. We will of course applaud when the time comes for us to be addressed as 
'•The best class that ever graduated from Rush" unless the present Senior class should be so addressed, thereby making 
those sweet and ancient words meaningless, forever more, prima facia. 

We not only originate some things new, but we give up some things old. The Louisville R. R. will not be worked 
for cut rates for those of us who fail to pull through because of lack of medical lore or some unworthy equivalent. No, 
we will either practice Homeopathy or become doctors of that most noble animal, the horse. Why choose these alter- 
natives? Good Friend, do you not see that should we fail at Rush there must be some good reason? and if this reason is 
lack of medical knowledge, that then we may know that we possess the primary qualification for a Homeop? Again if 
W6 should fail because of our acquaintance with -'ponies" that this same knowledge would serve us well in understand- 
ing horses. "Do you catch my meanness?'' 

As a class we appreciate a good thing when we see it, and are always ready to recognize ability. Class spirit and 
fellowship are characteristic of '95. 

While we may at times seem frisky and frolicsome it is but an indication that we have no desire to grow old pre- 
maturely and we almost regret that many of these pleasantries must next year be driven away by plug hats and 
whiskers when we are blossoming into older appearing men and doctors

A new and valuable compound formed synthetically by the union of two hundred and twenty individual substances 1 . 
Its history, although biief, is full- of interest. The new Laboratory was about completed when the individual elements 
through the affinity which only Rush can exert, assembled themselves and formed this important 3 mass. Once formed 
our honored Faculty looked upon it. 4 as they have upon these new compounds for the past fifty years. Something was 
different, 5 it had entirely new properties, — they looked again, 6 its appearance was favorable; but our worthy Professors 
are above judging by appearances only. The^y analyzed it," questioned its value, time and again in the laboratories and 
from the ai'ena, talked about 8 it and finally divided it into four parts, 9 called in the Junior Faculty placed three of these 
young but brilliant doctors in charge of each division for further investigation 1 ° — and that was not all; 1 ' at intervals of 
about six weeks one of the Faculty will gently invade the arena with tests 12 to determine the mettle and energy of the

substance and its constituents. The relictions shown are always of a favorable and satisfactory nature, each test indicat- 
ing an increasing intensity, 1 :i 

Even the senior students whom all respect highly, for they are almost 1 4 doctors, speak reverently of, and will soon 
recommend this compound. ' 5 or at least some forms of it to their patients. A number of instances have been recorded 
of members of the Cook County Quiz Class tip-toeing through the hall upon realizing that only the lecture room door 
separated them from 'g6. 1 c

Great care should be exercised in the preparation ' i of this drug, for at times it appears to be a violent explosive. ' H 
This property is best observed when a certain popular Rush professor enters the arena; however, this seemingly 
dangerous action need give no alarm for it soon subsides 1 9 and it is now that its most characteristic propei'ties are mani- 
fested, namely that of rapid absorption-" and complete retention,* 1 hence its great accumulative powers. 

"It is rapidly growing in favor with the profession"; this fact is attested by the general attention its various prep- 
arations receive, 22 especially in the dispensary of our College. 

Wallace's bandages are used to the exclusion of all other finger dressings. One of our old and conservative dispens- 
ary physicians, who seldom adopts a new drug until it has been tried and thoroughly tested, has recently begun to use 
Hemming-way' 's suppositories with negative results.-' 3 He still believes, however, that there might be something in it

and will continue its use. Conroy's (r/rei/ Ointment 3 i is now used in all departments of the dispensary, the doctors say 
it is always freshly prepared 25 and can be relied upon to act quickly; no deaths can be directly traced to its use. 

But it is Orth's Oxide- 6 which is about to receive the recognition which will place it first in importance. The report 
comes that it will be at the right hand of our distinguished Professor of Chemistry during the coming year. 


The active principles of this compound are most noticeable when brought in contact with its polymeric forms es- 
pecially that of the middle degree. As an instance of the remarkable antagonism existing we might cite an event of the 
early part of the year. 

This compound was seen to be slowly diffusing in a nitrogenical manner from the new laboratory receivers, number 
forty, forty-one, forty- two and forty-four when in the hallway it encountered its middle polymer;- 7 instantly there was 
great agitation throughout the two masses, but all went well until two elements, supposedly in a nearly nascent state, 
united in sudden and vigorous manner, generating an heat so intense as to cause the complete volitalization and annihil- 
ation of its opposing middle element 2 * after which the two compounds diffused in their appointed ways. 


At present the application of this compound is limited to study, investigation and research. Already many useful 
properties have been discovered 21 ' and the future will certainly add many more, which will make it a necessity in the 
sick room. 

These properties, though latent'"' now, are sure to develope and bring to light the great and important truths which 
we now see' 1 ' but dimly. All will look forward with great expectancy to the many blessings it will surely bring to

3obn nocrlc Coulter. 

President of Lake Forest University. 

John Merle Coulter was born in Ningpo, China, November twentieth, 1851. His early education was obtained in a 
private school at Hanover. Indiana. Later, after receiving a course of study in the preparatory department of Hanover 
College, he entered the college proper, from which he received the degree of A. B. in 1870. This same institution has 
since conferred upon him the Master's degree and also that of Doctor of Philosophy. After graduating from Hanover 
he became connected with the United States Geological Survey of the Territories as Botanist under Dr. Hayden. and 
spent two years exjDloring the Yellowstone Park region and the Colorado Mountains. He now began his life's work as 
a teacher as Professor of Natural Science in Hanover College, which position he occupied until the spring of 1S79, when, 
after having taken some special work in the Summer School of Harvard University, he became identified with Wabash 
College as Professor of Biology. In 1891 (he received the honorary degree of LL. D. from the University of Missouri 
and in the following autumn became President of the State University of Indiana which position he resigned to accept 
the Presidency of Lake Forest University in the fall of 1893 

"Dr. Coulter is best known to the educational world through his text books in Botany which are authoritative 
works,'' among which are his "Botany of the. Yellowstone Region." "Synoptical Flora of Colorado" (with Professor Por- 
ter). "Manual of Rocky Mountain Botany." "Hand-Book of Plant Dissection" (with Arthur and Barnes), "Gray's Man- 
ual of Botany," sixth edition (with Dr. Watson). "Report on the Nealley Collection of Texan Plants," "Manual of 
Texan Botany, "and revisions of "North American Hypericacese, Umbelliferse, Cornaceas, Cactacese," etc. He has 
been editor of the "Botanical Gazette" since 1875. 

Dr. Coulter is President of the Indiana Academy of Science, Secretary and Vice-President of the American Associa 
tion for Advancement of Science, President of the Botanical Club of the A. A. A. S., Member of American Botanical 
Club, International Committee on Nomenclature, Linnasan Society of London etc. etc. 

He has been special agent in Botany, United States Department of Agriculture for seven years and is a member of 
the Phi Gamma Delta and Phi Beta Kappa College Fraternities. 


Xafce jforcst College. 

By President Coulter. 

t the opening of the present year Lake Forest College was revolutionized in its educational methods. 

The fact was recognized that the old rigid courses failed in two things: (1) They were adapted to the 

wants only of a certain class of those desiring a college education. (2) they permitted a very small amount 
LWjJ of time to be given to the various subjects. The first narrowed the field of usefulness, the second was 

contrary to well-known principles of education. In the new arrangement the individual is recognized. 
and the numerous courses are so elastic that every individual need is met. In order that the training may not become 
too narrow, a certain amount of required work must be selected from the great representative departments of thought, 
as mathematics, language, science, etc. In order that the very great educational advantage of advanced work may be 
secured, each student must select some subject as a major to be pursued for three years. In this way the major subject 
becomes the back-bone of a student's course, and the ribs bracing it on every side are the minor subjects which are car- 
ried for a shorter time. In this way a college course has both breadth and depth; the subjects are reduced in number, 
and the individual aptitudes can be cultivated. 

The arrangement of the scientific work of the college is probably most nearly related to the interests of a medical 
college. With three years offered in each subject of Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, and Botany, it would seem that the 
college offers sufficient facilities in these directions. The work, too, is of the most modern kind, for all the men in 
charge are young men who have had contact with the best laboratories of the world, and are all publishing results of 
their own investigations. From this it will be seen that the training in these laboratories is not of the class-room var- 
iety, but that the students enter regular workshops where actual investigation is being carried on. Notably in the bio- 
logical laboratories will there be found the best of equipment, so that the would-be medical student can come in coutact 
with the underlying principles of biology. One can familiarize himself with that wonderfully developed technique which 


enters into the investigation of so many of the problems that he will meet later. I feel like emphasizing the importance 
not only of a substratum of laboratory science from which to develop a thorough medical training; but also of that con- 
tact with language and literature which will bring greater culture to the physician and hence greater possibilities of 
usefulness . 

In short, Lake Forest College is so constructed that it can respond to every demand of the medical college, whether 
small or- large, whether general or technical. A medical preparatory course is arranged, which is elastic enough to 
meet the requirements of different medical colleges; broad enough to give a certain amount of culture; and short 
enough to meet the case of those who feel that they do not have the time or means for prolonged college training.

1F3istor\> of Presbyterian hospital. 


he hospital of today represents the best work of the profession and demonstrates the 
principles of Christianity reduced to practice. 

It should offer the best skill, medical and surgical, that can be obtained, and tender such 
sympathetic care as one only can render who, in a degree at least, aj:>preciates the pain of 
individual suffering. 

But more than this, a hospital aside 

from being a source of healing may and 

ought to be a fountain of education. 

The various hospital cases in so far as 

they afford clinical advantage to the stu 

dent should be so utilized as not to in any 

degree compromise their cure or conval- 

Medicine cannot be taught, as it 

should, in the abstract; theory withoul 

practice is like learning chemistry from 

books or swimming on dry land. Book 

knowledge alone counts for very little 

at the bedside and the sooner the public 

recognizes this fact so much the sooner 

will i1 enjoy tlic services of a superior 

class of physicians. 

Rush College from its inception, 

with its broad charter and broader and lib 

eral-minded men, has always striven for 

■iiiikii i'hi:siiytkuian ruritcii H< 


the best and most practical in medicine. During its entire history it 
has always given superior clinical instruction, but never until its for- 
tunes became linked with the Presbyterian Hospital has it had a ser- 
vice that was in keeping with its didactics. 

The clinics previous to the foundation of the hospital were neces- 
sarily limited to only such major cases as could be transferee! after op- 
eration, and consecpiently a large number of operative cases never 
could be taken; moreover even in the cases which could be removed 
after surgical interference it was quite difficult to so manage it as to 
preserve antiseptic conditions and realize results which may be ob- 
tained in a well-regulated hospital. The masters of those clays, some 
of whom are still living, were not content with such a state of affairs. 
Medical instruction was gradually widening: more especially did bac- 
teriological research, 
which was just then 
beginning to unfold 


the possibilities of a more comprehensive surgery and pointing the way 
to a newer medicine, stimulate those ambitious minds with a desire to 
accpiire facilities for instruction that would be unaffected by the for- 
tunes of politics or any other foreign influence. Thus it came about 
that the idea of the hospital as an agent in relieving the sick and poor 
and as an adjunct in teaching practical medicine came about. 

Land had long since been purchased, a building was then designed 
and commenced, but before completion it was discovered that such in- 
stitutions are not only expensive to construct, but more expensive to 
manage. Dr. Jos. P. Ross the financial wheel-horse of the Faculty, 
standing face to face with the facts, and under the pressure of a great 
emergency, conceived a plan during a night that was even better than 
he thought and more comprehensive than he dreamed. It was this; 
he proposed, for a specific consideration, to deed all the property to a 



corporation; said corporation in return to give the College the privi- 
lege of using such clinical patients as might voluntarily consent to the 

This plan had scarcely seen daylight before a religious body, 
famed for its hospitals and amply able to redeem its pledges, stood 
ready to accept the offer. But Dr. Ross desired that the hospital 
should blossom forth as a flower of his beloved church, and thus, in- 
stead of accepting a tempting offer, he preferred to struggle and wait. 
To consummate his plan he called to his aid such men as Rev. Willis 
G. Craig, D. D., his former pastor and famed for his ability to raise 
money; Geo. W. Hall, his neighbor, to whose untiring efforts the success 
of the hospital is greatly due; Dr. Robt. C. Hamill, whose professional 
as well as church standing made him a valuable aid; Dr. D. K. Pear- 
sons, a man of great wealth, keen foresight, and greater liberality; 

Rev. John H. Bar- 
rows, famed for his 
oratory and pulpit 


power, and indeed many others of equal repute in their way. In the 
meanwhile Mr. Tuthill King, the doctor's father-in-law gave him sub- 
stantial help by sending a $10,000 check. This was the first large 
donation the hospital received. 

The scope and working plans of the New York Presbyterian Hos- 
pital served as a worthy model to copy and so it happens that in the 
drafting of the articles of incorporation, the Constitution and By-Laws 
one sees a striking resemblance. 

The following gentlemen were the incorporators; — Tuthill King. 
Daniel K. Pearsons. William Blair. Robert C Hamill, John H. Bar- 
rows, C. M. Henderson. John B. Drake, Nathan Corwith, Samuel M. 
Moore, Henry W. King, W. H. Wells. Henry Waller, Henry M. Lyman, 
James M. Horton. Willis G. Craig, Cyrus H. McCormick, Jacob 



Beidler, Joseph P. Ross. In their petition they say that no distinction 
shall be made as to creed, nationality or color, but that the inmate 
shall be provided "-with the ministrations of the Gospel agreeably to 
the doctrines and forms of the Presbyterian church." 

After the usual delays incident to the construction and furnishing 
of such an institution the opening day arrived. The first case was one 
of chronic iritis, a patient of Dr. E. L. Holmes, who, the report says, 
was improved. This admission occurred August 21st, 188-1, and up to 
April 1st, 1885 the end of the fiscal year, we find a record of 299 admis- 

The actual hospital management rested upon Dr. E P. Davis, as 
Superintendent, a graduate of Rush, and a recent interne of Cock 
County Hospital. His hospital experience had put him in touch with

institution was not long in becoming a formidable rival of similar ones 
of its kind. 

The first internes were Drs. L. H. Prince and Horace Sheldon, 
Alumni of Rush, and Dr. Alta Mitchell, daughter of the greatly beloved 
late;, pastor of the 1st Presbyterian church of this city. She is the only 
lady who was ever given the position, and that was done out of respect 
to her father, though her qualifications eminently fitted her for the

cases, the nurse could not be given ample instruction in this depart- 
ment and it was abandoned, the Illinois Training school taking its

These men recognizing the fact that the number of attending men 
of a hospital must necessarily be limited, enacted the rule allowing any 
reputable physician to treat patients of his own in the hospital, assur- 
ing them that they should be accorded all the courtesies and privi-

During the first winter of the hospital the Ladies' Aid Society was organized. This Society, under the able leader- 
ship of Mrs. Marquis, took upon itself the task of providing bedding, kitchen and table-w r are, reading matter, delicacies, 
and comforts for the sick, etc. 

This body is composed of many of the leading women of the city; their work and influence is beyond calculation, 
and to them is due a large share of ihe honor of having made the hospital what it is. 

Any one not familiar with the facto can form no idea of the character and scope of work daily accomplished in this 
institution. There are hospitals and hospitals, but people compare one with another without any regard to their re- 
spective differences. 

It is true that the annual reports give a tabulated list of cases healed and operations performed, but unless one is 
acquainted with the necessary details involved in their treatment and care, figures make little impression. Moreover it 
is not numbers that count, but cases. 

Its medical staff has not only been composed of men found in the front rank of the profession, 
but it has always had those who -were its recognized leaders; and thus patients admitted to its wards 
have not only had the advantage of the most mature thought and skill of the profession but they in turn have contrib- 
uted to the relief of others suffering in a similar manner, for whose benefactors they served as object lessons. Faith- 
ful, conscientious work brings its own reward. A representative staff with efficient helpers soon made the hospital 
quite popular and consequently many well-deserving poor patients as well as those who were able to p&y had to be re- 
fused for lack of room . 

The first addition to the original building was the "Hamill Wing," built by Dr. Ross and the Cyrus H. McCormick 
estate which practically gave the hospital a net increase of about forty beds. 

It was not long however before even this increased capacity proved inadequate and maybe but for a little accident its 
work might still be confined to such limited quarters. During this period the hospital was greatly helped by the gen- 
erosity and personal attention of Dr. D. K. Pearsons, who was then President, and on a certain day the morning paper 
stated that Dr. Pearsons had generously contributed $25,000 to the hospital. 

This item chanced to fall under the eye of Mr. D. A. Jones who at this time was arranging for the disposal of his 
estate, and knowing the President to be a prudent business man concluded that if the latter had sufficient confidence in 
the concern to give twenty-five, he at least would take his chances iv a gift of ten thousand dollars. 

Not long after this Mr. Jones died, and upon probating the will it was found that two- seventeenths of his estate was 
to be given to charity, but as to its entire disposition no provision was made. Mrs. Jones and her daughters, who had 
long before this taken a deep interest in the enterprise and given freely to its support, came to the conclusion that as 
the husband and father was eminently a Chicagoan. bis monument should be erected here and they very wisely decided 


that no shaft to his memory could be more enduring than the erection 
of a hospital and thus came about the D. A. Jones memorial. This 
part of the hospital in style of architecture, structure, and working plan 
is a model of its kind. To accomplish this object these ladies con- 
tributed §100,000 in addition to the original bequest and this amount 
was augmented by a contribution of $45,000 from Dr. Pearsons for the 
building of the ell which unites the memorial with the former buildings. 
Soon after the hospital was opened the Presbyterian church began 
to endow annual free beds for which they contributed §300 a year. 
By the end of the first fiscal year six such beds were endowed. Then 
certain individuals imitated their example, but it remained for Mrs. 
Barbara Armour to endow in perpetuity by the gift of §5000, the first 
bed in memory of her sister. After the Jones memorial was com- 
pleted, the Henry Corwith Room, endowed ($10,000) by his daugh- 
ters, was the first selection made. 


The board of managers felt much gratified with their success thus 
far, and especially that inquiry was being made for the endowment 
of rooms, but it must be confessed that when Mrs. Wm. Armour sent 
her check for §50,000, endowing an entire ward of ten beds in memory 
of her husband, they were more than delighted. Since then these en- 
dowments in perpetuity have gradually increased so that it now is the 
largest part of the hospital asset. 

In this aggressive age to rest is to recede, and so thought the hos- 
pital board. They looked with envious eyes wpon an adjoining corner 
property and at the first chance secured it. This acquisition was the 
first practical opportunity to safely conduct a lying-in department. 
Previous to this such cases were only received into the hospital for the 
sake of affording the house physicians a reasonable amount of experi- 
ence but it was always with misgivings. 



When therefore the way evened for the establishment of a mater- 
nity department for teaching bedside obstetrics no time was lost, 
and it must be said to the credit of the management, that when it fully 
understood the scope and motive of the plans it heartily rendered 
most cordial support. 

Following this venture which has proved such a success, came the 
convalescent's home, and later the department for throat and chest 
diseases, more especially for cases of advanced tuberculosis. 

A hospital that depends so much upon its friends for help should 
in turn care for those whom they send. 

It should not, indeed cannot always insist upon receiving only 
such cases which are surely curable or at least improvable, for it often 
happens that the least it can do is to soothe the last hours of these un- 
fortunates. It is neither wise nor safe to admit such cases to a gen- 
eral hospital and so by the addition of this annex a most serious prob- 
lem was solved. 



In referring to the gifts which the hospital has received, it points 
with pleasure to the J. Adams Allen library. 

This remarkable man so highly esteemed because of his ability 
has left the hospital a legacy of much historical value. 

In taking a retrospect of the past one is impressed with the 
growth of this institution. It was born poor, life has always been a 
struggle, but this struggle came in consequence of its persistence in 
caring for the needy beyond its ability. 

With increased facilities came greater demands and graver respons- 
ibilities, but so far as possible it has always striven to divide the bur- 
den with those who come for aid and lend a helping hand to the needy. 

In giving it has prospered, not by flaming advertisements kept 
constantly before the public, or by questionable methods which one so 
frequently sees, but simply started by the will of a consecrated few. 
by its own momentum it has quickly come down to the present with a 
record of 12,000 patients.

The noblest of its kind \ 

It bears a patriot's stamp and name. 

And patriots all are we. 

And loyr.l to old Rush's fame, 

Our hearts shall ever be. 

And can we e'er forget the men 
Who are with us no more, 
Whose voices linger with us still, 
Whose conflicts now are o'er. 
A hero's fight they fought and won, 
A hero's crown they gained. 
O their's the joy but just begun, 
But our's the loss and pain. 

And when a last bulrush is left, 

Beside a lonely pool. 

And nights are dark and wolves shall bark, 

And the midnight air is cool. 

Saint Peter then shall gather him, 

To decorate his hall : 

For Rush shall shine when the stars crow dir 

The last and best of all.

And Lyman's silvery tongue be stopped 

From calling in the Clan ! 

Can Parkes and Senn forget their skill, 

And Bevan's bones be dumb, 

And Haines' atoms cease to change 

Until the kingdom come. 

But still old Rush is ne'er forgot, 

But ever called to mind. 

While Holmes gives hearing to the deaf 

And vision to the blind. 

And Knox shall help the orthodox 

To populate the earth, 

Old Rush's name and fame shall shine 

While the human race has birth. 

Can human ills resist the pills 

Of Etheridge's varied store.

To nearer sense and consciousness 

The inner life we feel: 
And if our finite minds do fail

Like ours, within these shadows dim. 

As blinded by the night: 
And so like children here we cry — 

Things are mysterious, strange. 
Because they only chance to lie 

Beyond our narrow range. 

Give us more honest manliness, 

More earnest wish to scan 
The sacred peaks of mounts which lie 

Unseen to eye of man; 
Grant humble reverence when we reach 

Such glistening heights, to feel 
The spirit not to stand and preach, 

But to bend low and kneel. 

And learn what now to us are hid — 

The gentle force of life; 
The reason why the foe intrudes. 

The power to quiet strife 
To aid without the will within, 

To meet kind Nature's need, 
And grow to her more closely kin — 

Physician true indeed. 

Words by E. S. G. 

1 . Soon we leave each other, boys, 
All our college cares and joys, 
Precious yet with their alloys — 

Happy college days. 
May be sometimes we shall meet, 
And perhaps have time to greet. 
And in thought these days repeat 
Happy college days 

Tune Belle Mahone. 


Happy college days, 
Careless college days: 
Are we leaving ye for aye, 
Happy College Days? 

They can never, never be. 
What they are to you and me, 
Pilled with youth and jollity, 

Happy College Days. 
Time will change the form and face: 
Death creep in and claim its place 
Old loved marks we know efface, — 

Happy College Days! 


Let. us be friends while we may, 
Now when memories cling and stay 
Ere they all have passed away, 

Happy College Days. 
And we shall in memory get, 
Touches of their sweetness yet— 
Clouds with silver linings set — 

Happy College Days.

We wish to call the attention of the Alumni to the College Annual. The 
Pulse, which is soon 1o appear. II will be a volume of interesl to all Rush 
men, present or past, and will contain besides the profane and sacred history 

1htetov\> of the Corpuscle. 

nb who has been connected with its Editorial Staff finds the task of writing the history of the Cor- 
puscle a very pleasant undertaking, for it brings up so many of the laid-by scenes of Memory's 
gallery. To retrospect is one of the luxuries of life, and history, sacred, profane, great, or small, 
is but a retrospection. May this reviewing be as pleasant for the reader as for the writer. 

The honor of being the progenitor of the Corpuscle belongs to Dr. E. S. Goodhue of the class 
of '92. Within his fertile brain the idea was conceived, while his versatility and love for journalistic enterprise nourished 
and supported the idea until there was The Corpuscle, but not The Corpuscle as we now know it. Dr. Goodhue labored 
under great adversity. The opposition arose partly from sheer apathy, but mostly from rank jealousy. His deriders 
accused him of wishing to run a mercenary game with himself for chief legatee, for but few of his contemporaries could 
perceive the farsightedness of his idea; they were unable to grasp the enterprise because of its greatness. To theui it 
looked absurdly small and ridiculous; to him appealed the need for such a journal, and he could see the surprising ex- 
tent to which a right journal, rightly conducted at Rush, might go. In an article in the journal not long since. Dr. 
Goodhue relates some of the bitterness that was gratuitously heaped upon him. But his conception was not to die. 
With private means, with unaided efforts the first number was issued. The cover sheet was gayly decorated with the 
colors of the University, and from some motive or other, a goodly number of students purchased that initial issue. Now 
it was that the true greatness of Dr. Goodhue was shown. He knew that to be the representative journal of Rush Med- 
ical College the management must not be vested in a single one of her students. He saw that to secure life for his off 
spring he must surrender it to the care of the students, and surrender it he did, while yet the first flush of pride in its 
success was warm upon his cheel; . 

The number of students chosen to act as pilots for this new craft was a grave mistake. They were so numerous 
that they were in each other's way; eight editors and three business managers could never exist in harmony and each 
do good work. A short trial sufficed to make this plain, and when the terms of Messrs. S. C. Beach. U. L. Holford. 


A. R. Martin, P. M. Crane, D. A. Smith. W. L. Bouchard. E. P. Enos.and A. F. Sippy expired— leaving Messrs. R. W. Holmes, 
E. J. Senn, and T. J. Williams still on the staff — it was decided best to elect but two men, instead of eight. At this 
time the elections were open to any and all of the students; every man who desired could vote, not only in elections but 
on any matter of business that came up. When the election came off Messrs. John Ross and C. D. Center were chosen 
by the students who comprised the voters. 

Not long after this, it became evident that another change might be beneficial to the paper. The student body had 
no time to investigate the needs of the journal, and knowing but little of its business and business methods, could not 
vote intelligently at the business meetings; indeed many of the students took so little interest that they did not vote at 
all. Then, too, there was a clique antagonistic to the paper and the Editorial Staff , these men always voted, and al- 
ways in such a way as to try, at least to stop the wheels of progress. When they could not do it by votes they could 
by making a disturbance and so breaking up the meeting, leaving everything in a chaotic state. It was decided to or- 
ganize under a charter, make a stock company, allow every stockholder to vote, and proceed on strictly business prin- 
ciples. It might have been said that in the beginning, the student board acted as business managers, solicited advertis- 
ing, paid bills, incurred debts, etc.: but some time previous to the determination to form a stock company, the journal 
had been placed in the hands of Mr. W. J. Anderson, who acted as business manager and relieved the staff of all but edi- 
torial duties, — excepting one: the editors, owing to the technical character of much of the subject matter, were always 
compelled to "read proof." Mr. Anderson saw the desirability of having an incorporated company, and acting in con- 
junction with the Editorial Staff, made application to the Secretary of State, who issued a charter to The Corpuscle Com- 
pany of Rush Medical College, with Messrs. Holmes. Senn, Ross, and Center, as incorporators. Previous to this time 
Mr. Williams had withdrawn from the Staff, owing to a difference of opinion that had arisen between himself and the 
other members. The capital stock was fixed at one hundred dollars as it was deemed best to make this part merely 
nominal, and the ten shares were promptly taken by the incorporators. The Company was very agreeably surprised at 
the friendly and even cordial manner in which the new state of affairs was received, and the reception given the new 
Company was taken as proof that the students themselves had recognized the desirability of a change. Prom this time 
on. the progress of the paper was eminently satisfactory; the Faculty gave the journal greater recognition: the individ- 
ual members contributed more largely to its literary support; by the aid of a stenographer the Staff was enabled to re- 
port a number of clinics, and several series of lectures verbatum; the alumni began to rise to the occasion and sub- 
scriptions came in; advertisers were more easily persuaded In make their goods known through its columns, and an era 
of prosperity seemed al hand. There was one serious drawback however. Some of the members of the Faculty persist- 
ently refused to assist in anyway; while disclaiming all connection between the journal and the Faculty, they declared 



Ill at such and such thing's must not be published. Often, to the editors, these things seemed of vital importance to the 
paper. Thus was its existence endangered, being "between the devil and the deep sea." 

it was a real misfortune when the term of office of Mr. R. W. Holmes expired, for he had been so clearly in touch with 
the Faculty, the while he had the interests of the Corpuscle so deeply at heart. The shares of stock held by Messrs. 
Holmes and Semi were transferred to Messrs. Holbrook, Calvin, and Allenburger in January. 189?. In January, 1894, 
Messrs. Ross and Center transferred their stock to Messrs. Calvin and Eckard, the former holding it in trust for Mr. 
Honnold, who was chosen to succeed Mr. Girard, the latter having resigned. 

Thus is seen the course of the little journal started by Dr. Goodhue. The first of its kind in America, the second 
in the world. Prom a constituency of less than one hundred it has increased to nearly a thousand in three years. Near- 
ly every state and territory is represented on the mailing list. Exchanges are made with medical journals throughout 
the United States, England, Ireland, Prance, India, and elsewhere. Small as it is, it is in touch with a goodly part of 
the medical literature and progress of the world, and its advancement is as yet low in the horizon: let it rise across the 
heavens for a decade, for two decades, for the half century, adding as it must, year by year its supporters and contribu- 
tors from the outgoing classes, bringing forth the writings of the future Esmarcks and Billroths. the MacKenzies and 
Pagets, the Charcots and Pozzis. (for Rush must inevitably furnish some of them) and the most sanguine friend of The 
Corpuscle can scarcely imagine to what heights the journal may reach in the future.

£be llntcrcollCQiatc Department of tbc )J?ouiuj flDen's Christian association. 

The aims of this organization should be too well known to need comment. The leaders of this movement believe 
that the fullest development of man can be reached only when the four sides of his nature, social, intellectual, physical, 
and spiritual, are symmetrical, each having received its due attention. Acting upon this belief, provision is made for in- 
formal receptions, cosy parlors are furnished, and other suggestions of home life; entertainment courses, lectures and 
practical talks are arranged; and a well stocked reading-room, a gymnasium fully equipped, bowling alleys and bath- 
rooms suggest strength and health; and the gospel meetings, devotional services and bible classes endeavor to complete 
the perfect man. 

The Rush Medical College Branch of the Chicago Association is fortunate in having so near it the beautiful home of 
the West Side Department on Monroe street near Ashland Boulevard, glimpses of which are presented herewith, and 
where the privileges mentioned may be enjoyed. Special classes in the gymnasium are arranged to suit the schedule 
of students, a competent teacher being always in attendance. 

The work in the college consists of weekly prayer meetings held in one of the class rooms. These are led by stu- 
dents, professors, and prominent ministers of the neighborhood. The management of the association is in the hands of 
an Organization Committee consisting this year of W. A. Bellwood, chairman. W. D. Erode, vice-chairman. F. N. Brett, 
secretary. W. H. Cook, G. C. Stratton, J. W. Earle, and Professor John Edwin Rhodes. M. D. 

The following sub committees were appointed for 1894:

The "Kant Work A Pull" quiz class was composed this year, as usual, of the brainiest men of the Senior class. The 
Chief Idiotj'was Kib Morris, otherwise "Old Melancholy." He had such a low run of spirits all the year that the bar- 
ometer fell whenever he appeared, and it is said he is largely to blame for these Democratic hard times. The Mogul 
Manipulator of Ideas was C. A. Helvie, whose familiar name does not look well in print. If Indianized a trifle it would 
be ' ' Abdomen-niade-of -Unbaked-Cake. " 

Smoker of the Original Green and Master of Bluffs, W. C. Keith, ran well in his class. He was famous for being on 
speaking acquaintance with the Stock Yards and other historic persons. The fourth man furnished solidity for the 
gang. He was suspected of owning an innocent pull, but as he never exploded it in public, his charter was not taken 
away from him. He was "Chappy from de nort side." The^man who ran a feeble last to Chief Idiot was Center. He 
gave the class the impression, at first, of being a side-wheeler, but investigation showed that the cerebral hemi- 
spheres were not mates. Collectively the class represents more original theories than a Foundling's Home. Each man 
has great hopes of "reading his title clear to mansions in"— Milwaukee, Omaha, and elsewhere.

song to the pipes that we Medics use 
Made of meerschaum, briar or clay; 
The pipes and tobacco that smoke out the blues 

And help to drive dull care away. 
Cigarettes and cigars fill a place of their own 
The "Perfectos," the "Nestor," the snipe; 
But the pleasure they give, it is commonly known. 
Isn't in it with ''hitting the pipe." 

For instance, some evening you've crammed your poor head 

Full of facts, till it's pretty near broke — 
And you put down your books before going to bed 

And light up your pipe for a smoke. 

Perhaps those poor fellows who preach of "abuse," 

And earnestly bid us ,: take heed" 
If they tried this some evening might alter their views 

On the "vulgar effects of the weed." 

For things that are "vulgar" are not in the thought. 

No mean thoughts your pipe will provoke, 
But the happiest pictures that Fancy has wrought 

Were drawn on a background of smoke.

Truths of medicine I'm finding, 
And I'm as conscientious as a medic well can be: 
But instead of plainly seeing' 
How to cure the human being 
It is quite a different matter I continually sec. 

' Tis not so with those who enter 
From a town like Chipmunk Center. 
Where they don't possess the rudiments of what a maid should be: 
But for those who've left a maiden 
Who with nature's gifts is laden 

I can sympathize most deeply for they're in the boat with me.

1.) Is post-mortem decomposition a grave affair? 

2.) Can you open an abscess with anything less than a pair of Jacks? 

3.) Could economical students reduce their rents by doing their own 

4.) In what kind of a wound do you use the sagittal suture ? 

5.) If a child is born in mid-ocean, the father being in America and 
the mother in Ireland, what time is it? 

6.) Since Rush has four Kings and a Jack, couldn't she see a fifteen 
cent raise with her three Nichols? 

7.) If a minstrel show came to town and Bock was in the gallery and 
they called for a medical man, what would happen? 

8.) If it was a warm day and Outhet had been eating ham and salted 
crackers for luncheon, how much ahead would Fred Wolf be? 


1. Where were you plucked and how often? 

2. Did you average 50 per cent, on your general examinations and do 
you not think they graded too closely? 

3. In what disease beginning with "p " is the lung infiltrated? 
i. Have you performed one or a part of one dissection ? 

5. Give the usual location of the Biceps? 

6. Is small-pox contagious and what preventative treatment is 
generally used? 

7. Would it be according to the code for a fellow practitioner to 
accept a case that had previously been in your care unless the patient 
had first discharged you? 

8. How is vaccination performed V 

9. Mention three anaesthetics? 

10. Grade your own paper then pass it to another student. N. B. 50

Memory's Walls 

For years and years Rush students sat 

In the recitation halls. 
And gazed upon the white-wash that 

Like this adorned the walls: 

But it came to pass one morning. 

When they gathered in those halls, 
Though there had been no warning, 

More like this appeared the walls: 


Smoking and Chewing 



isitively Prohibited 

in this room. 

And furthermore it came to pass, 
Next day they filled the halls, 

And once again the happy class 
Thus viewed those self-same walls: 

But later in some student's den, 
If you should chance to call, 

Perhaps you'd understand it then, 
For thus appears his wall: 


No sign so frail, attached to nail. 

Can hang on college walls, 
All such attempts are sure to fail 
Tn dear Old Rush's halls. 

Smoking' and Chewing 


Positively Prohibited 

in this room.

After the invocation the President of the College addressed the 
audience in the following beautiful words: 

We are gathered. On with the dance- 
Whereupon the College Glee Club chanted a few feet of this touchful 
hymn: — 

Alma Mater, dear old Rush, 
Keep us ever in the push. 
Never let us see a minute 
When thy sons should not be in it. 
For oin- errors put the blame 
On some other fellow s name. 
If ITomeos to Heaven go 
Pick us out a place below. 
Perhaps this question may be wrong 
But this is a medic's song, 
If thou be our Alma .Mater 
Who the dickens is the Pater? 
We only ask to save thy name 
From insinuating shame. 
After the moist eyes had been dried and sobs had died out, the 
President of the College arose and presented the keys of the New Build- 
ing to the President of the Regentleinen in these simple but appropriate 
words : 

Here are the keys. Doe. be 
Careful you don't let the students 
Get keys to the toilet rooms. 
The President of the Itcgentloineii. who was visibly affected, finally 
regained his composure and taking an easy attitude before the audience, 
delivered, in a clear voice, the following address in response to the 
remarks of the President of the College: 


When the audience, had recovered from these tear-startingformalities 
ami the handkerchiefs had been put away. Professor L. M. Henry. 
Treasurer of the College spoke as follows: 
Ladies and Gentlemen and Kcwance Maori 1 : 

Fifty years ago this morning there gathered in a shed on Clark 
street, the first Faculty that ever lectured in Rush Medical College. 
(Tremendous applause.) And what have we to-day? We have a Ray- 
mond, a Senn Jr., a Weeks and Henimenway. Fifty years ago there was 
not a saloon within a mile of where we now stand — what have we now? 
Ask Bock. In the olden days students had none of the modern con- 
veniences and comforts. Co with me today to the room in the northwest 
corner of the basement of the old building. Ah. such luxury. (Appre- 
ciative and enthusiastic silence.) 

Dr. Henry was followed by the President of Lake Forest University, 
who said: 

The .Modern Laboratory is not what it is cracked up to be. They 
speak of convenience and comfort. Where are they at? What we need 
is a laboratory, where each student has his steamer chair, a grate-fire, a 
Turkish bath and a tennis court. Can a man work if lie lias not bis 
needed exercise ami comfort? Xo. No. A thousand and one times 
No 1 (Applause by the rhetoricians present who saw the fine point that 
an ii-iii number of Noes would have made & positive answer.) Shall the 
student handicap himself by doing the actual manual labor of laboratory 
study'' Let each student have a servant to do the work which he directs 
from his steamer chair. Is it too much to hope for Nestor Cigarettes 
and Apolliuaris Claret Lemonade at each seat? Great changes have 
been worked in the past, let us hope for the future that our learning 
may not be vulgar labor biding behind words meaning pleasure. 

When the speech was ended Adolph waked up the audience, which 
then filed out. 



Who works for Hush and earns his pay, 
And cleans the rooms ten times a day, 
And never has a word to say? 

'['hat's John. 
Who leaves the rooms for John to brush, 
And from the students' tips is flush; 
Who is the Autocrat of Rush? 

It's Adolph. 
Who had Anatomy last year. 
And gave examinations queer. 
And drove half of his class to beer? 

Twas Dr. B. 
Who thinks that "passing up" is wrong, 
And tells us so in language strong, 
And makes his clinics two hours long? 

Dr. L. 
Who knows more stories than the rest 
Of all the doctors in the West, 
And tells that famed "Pulse Story" best? 

Dr. D. 
Who has a line of gestures queer. 
Says "Ah," "Ahem," then looks severe, 
Then wears a smile from ear to ear? 

Dr. E 

Who doth the office desk adorn; 

To be whose friend all Rush is sworn. 

Who is the rose among the thorn: 



SHssecting IKooin IRules. 

New Students will find the following rules for work in the dissecting 
room very helpful: 

1. For the first day secure two boxes of Perique mixed with one of 
Fruits and Flowers; one very strong pipe; several knives - ; a bottle of 
Florida-water; and one very large jag. 

2. Carry the jag very carefully up the stairs and do not ask the gen- 
tleman in a linen duster and silk cap for a chew. 

3. If you find you can't carry the jag you can put it carefully away in 
receptacles in the little ante-room. 

4. If Adolph has failed to give you a good Stiff, tell him to give you

Dissecting IRoom Soliloquy. 

I hear the murmurs of the dead, 

Moaning — sighing — 

As if a soul were flying, 

Flying from a corpse long dead. 

How. these murmurs make me start. 

Rising — breaking- — 

With a moan that's taking. 

Taking sadness to my heart. 

Now the murmurs come in storms, 

AVailing — groaning — 

Over lost souls moaning. 

Moaning through the lifeless forms. 

These are murmurs of the past, 

Of the shattering 

Hopes that have been scattering, 

Like the snow flakes in a blast. 

Yet these murmurs are unjust. 

Sighing — moaning — 

( 'rying — groaning — 

For all "Dust returns to Dust. : 


Here's a toast to the stiff with' the ,tatooed arm, 

One who to his love was true. 
For he carried her name as a lover's charm, 

Pricked deep in his skin, with blue. 

Her name was "Mary"— how little she knows 

Of the fate her lover met — 
He was a sailor — the anchor shows — 

I suppose she waits for him yet. 

Here's hoping she'll think he was lost at sea, 

For 'twould spoil it all if she knew 
That her sailor-boy was dissected by me, 

And the arm was included too. 
I suppose that he often told "Mary,'' he knew 

That her name was cut deep in his heart; ; 
But I proved that the statement could hardly be true,' 

For I carefully examined the part. 

So a toast now to "Mary," come fill up the bowl, 
May a new lover shield her from harm:, 

And now fill ons up to th >/p3ao3 of the soul 
Qf the stiff with the tatooed arm. 

here's a time for being merry 
and a time for being sad, 

But I'm not dealing with the 
latter kind. 

For there's no one in the col- 
lege wh o as feeling very bad 

When he gets his last dissec- 
tion ticket signed. 

After many weeks of poking half your 

dinner down your throat, 
And rushing for the parlor 'neath the 

After many weeks of grinding "Heath's Dissector" down by rote. 
You are in a most propitious shape to die. 

After shaving, cleaning, cutting, pulling, grinding every night, 
With hands of not the very sweetest kind, 

There is nothing under Heaven that can give one such delight, 
As to get his last dissection ticket signed. 

'Tis indeed a pleasant moment when your sweetheart answers, "Yes, - 

Or when yourself a millionaire you find, 

But it simply isn't in it with the moment, you'll confess. 

When you get your last dissection ticket signed.

Improve the shining minute? 
By grinding Gray and writing home 

And trying to be in it. 
See how the learned Middle-man 

Improves each fleeting day. 
By making the complexion of 

His brain a lovely gray. 
And note the worthy Senior. 

Who spends his precious time 
In raising beards and doing things 

That don't look well in rhyme. 
And now what doth the Faculty? 

They not a minute lose. 
But spend thtir time in planning schemes 

Ti- raise the student's dues. 
What doth the old Alumnus 
To keep him in the push? 
Writes letters to The Corpuscle 

Which speak of "Grand Old Rush." 
What doth the luukless patient then 

If doctors are this bad? 
Well that would all depend on the 
Religion that he had.

There have been so many ugly rumors afloat about Mr. D. Edmund Smith's intention to 
study for the Homeopathy that the Pulse has investigated the matter and is glad to be able to 
explain satisfactorily. We give Mr. Smith's explanation of the matter in his own words: 

" 'Twas dis way. See? Me and Doc Minnick was shakin dice in Wolf's place when in rolls 
Sport Meiklejohn and Doc Goldsbury — see? Well der faces was nearly full and me mustache was 
floatin' so I sez — sez I — 'Let's fling de pasteboards a bit' . . . fer me pockets was lined wid velvet 
and I see dey was tapiocas in sight. Well, Meiklejohn. he's a dead smooth duck wid de pictures, 
he is. and he sunk me wad fer twenty cases on de first splash. See? Pretty soon Goldsbury 
was skatin' on his uppers and Minnick ducked his nut an' dat left me and Meiklejohn to scrap it 
out, see? Well I trung de spots meself, and bein' ante man slung down a plunk an' 
sez 'dat's one flat, ye hear me talkin." for de sky was de limit, see? Well Mike he boosted to one- 
seventy-five, an' I met, fer ye see I had tree ladies to pull to. Den I sez, sez I, 'what ye want?' 
'I got 'nuff says Mike ... so I chewed me tongue and left him pat while I pulled to de ladies. . . 
Well I didn't better, see? But I had 'nuff to see de two an' half dat Mike slapped on de green an' 
riskin' de bluff I sez, sez I, 'Faces up.' Well he showed two Johns an' a pair o' belles wid a tree 
spot behinds to fill de bluff. See? 'Go tell' sez I, 'we're d'yu get de queens. I got tree meself.' 
'Let see de backs,' sez he, an' by the Pabst Select, de backs was all de same. 'You'z playin' crooked here, see?' sez he, 
But I only give him de horse-laugh low down an' scooped de cases. Meiklejohn. he quit de joint and yelled — 'I'll play 
ye square, ye poor imitation of a Dime Museum Advertisement, you.' an' de next ting I knowed he was lettin' on dat I 
told him I wuz goin' to be a homonkeyopath — but I'll do 'im yet, see? Say you ain't got no eatin' tobacco in your clothes 
have ye?" 


£be jfresbman's Dream. 

A poor, hard-working Freshman, 

Sat, wearied, in his room, 
Considering his prospects, 
In the evening s gathering gloom. 
He was wond ring when the time would 
That he should reap reward, 
From the various information 
With which his head was stored. 
Where would he hang his "shingle" 
When with college he was done; 
Where first to smite the monster, 
Nor cease till Fame he'd won. 
What could he charge his patients, 
How soon a carriage own, — 
And would three years of practice, 
Reward him with a home. 
And thus his thoughts ran swiftly on, 
Into channels without number, 
Nor ceased till Morpheus had come 
And bound him fast in .slumber. 
His lids had scarcely fallen, 
Ere the Sibyls of his Fate, 
Had shaken him with visions, 
.Most wondrous to relate. 
To some a dream is pleasant, 
Like a sweet, bewitching tale, 
With babbling brooks and music. 
Ending with a grand finale. 
But instead of rippling waters 
And a sunlit stretch of wood, 
He saw a rushing torrent 
Of bubbling human blood, 
With here or there an arm or leg — 
Though sometimes 'twas a bead, 
That would float along the surface 
As down this stream it sped. 
He watched the sight uncanny — 
And the scene still grew apace, 

Till he found himself surrounded, 
With a most terrific race. 
They were those of whom lie oft had r 
And had named with joke and jest, 
Little dreaming as he did so. 
That so soon they'd seek redress. 
The corpuscle and nerve cells, 
The muscles, bones, and all, 
Appeared there now before him, 
Like a great unyielding wall. 
For with features dimly outlined, 
But with visage hard and grim, 
They seemed each like the Hydra, 
That in old days troubled men — 
A tall and stalwart ganglion cell, 
Seemed marshal of the throng, 
And declared this hapless student, 
Had commited a grievous wrong — 
He had sought to learn the secret, 
The mysterious realm of Life. 
What were its primal factors, 
And its ruling laws of strife. 
They forbade this lore to mortals 
Lest with knowledge come contempt, 
For a system so translucent. 
That no range to Fancy lent. 
For his sacrilegious conduct. 
In thus entering their domain 
They would cast him with the others 
Into "'the river of the Slain.'' 
And as — with forward motion, 
They moved to take the lad, 
He awoke — and with an awful yell. 
Declared his dream was bad — 
While now in all his quizzes, 
His lectures and the like, 
He speaks about his dream friends, 
In a manlier not so light.

from Chicago and always wore an old, 
faded cap with "R. M. C." embroidered on 
it. He had a peculiar way, they say, of 
expecting everybody he met to give him 
some money. His money was mostly in 
small coins and he had also with it a lot 
of I. O. O's.

starting dramatic attitude and expressions.) Fever comes from the 
latin Febris, and skin conies from Teutonic origin, hence 1 should con-

Dr. S. — Ah. what do you mean by "conclude," that word was in the 
lesson today and I should like a good definition of it. And, too, I wish 
you would tell me all the salts of sulphuric acid and describe the 
appearance of each,for sulphur was mentioned in the lesson and to know 
all about sulphur, one must know about these salts of the acid. You 
must learn to study that way and .... (but the gong saves the class).

In a very little way. 
And perhaps the good you've taught me 

Is where you get your pay.

With the aid of Dr. Hemenway The Pulse is en- 
abled to give the etymology of a number of the Instructor's 
and Professor's names. 

Bouffleur— for instance, comes from the French Baeuf, 
meaning ox, and flair, meaning flower. Ox- 
flower or what we call ox-eye, being a daisy. 
It is thought from the present generation 
that the name was selected by the family 
Haines — is from the German haiu. meaning a o-yoz-e of 
flowers, bushes and trees. This name is said to 
have been given because of the peculiar 
flowery language of the ancestors. 
Cotton — is an old English name given the family on ac- 
count of the peculiar growth of hair on the 
Lyman — is said to be a corruption of layman, originally used 
to mean a ' 'man who lays in wait to catch an- 
Hyde- -is evidently the older and more vulgar term for the 

skin, a derivation easily understood. 
Ingals — illustrates the change of letter from the aspirate 
"h" to the harder sound of "g." The name 
was originally the German im Hals, meaning 
in the neck or throat.

To give you some idea of the magnitude of the World's Columbian Exposition, it is said to be a fact that if all 
the boards used in its construction were placed end to end, one after the other, they would reach almost half way around 
a certain Presbyterian interne's opinion of himself.

Hesopbagus fables. 


There once was a youth who was wont to sit in the 
First Row in Lectures and on the Perch in Quizzes. It 
chanced one Day that the Professor of Bacteriology devi- 
ated from this Regularity and Quizzed instead of Lectured. 
And it came to Pass that the Youth wished It had never Oc- 
curred for he Flunked. 

moral. — Always sit on the Perch. 


A Lad came once-to Rush. Quoth He; "I will sit Me on 
the Front Row where I can see Well." It was his First day at 
Rush and He remembered It because His Sitting on the 
First Row was not Protracted. 

moral: — At Rush You begin at the Top and work Down. 
I AND eyes. 

A Boy named I once said bad things about another 
Boy, who ecchymosed the Eyes of this I for It. And this 
I showed his Eyes to a Professor, Who suspended the Boy 
Who hit I's Eyes. 

moral: — If you ever hit I you had better use an Axe 
and do It up Brown.* 


A certain Creature once was reciting in Chemistry and 
He did not know His Lesson. And the Professor said, 
"What is a Hydro Carbon?" and a Youth behind Him whis- 
pered, "C. in multiple of Six and H. O. in Proportion to 

*Bertling will please not tell the Faculty. 

Form Water" and the Creature said This too and It was a 
Flunk and He should have Known Better for the Youth be- 
hind Him was MacNab and MacNab does not know Any 
More about Hydro Carbons than Ormsby does about a 
Manhattan Cocktail. 

moral: — Honesty gives the Best Results when MacNab 
is Around.

"Johnny dear, . . Johnny. . . John. . . John Ross, will you 
wake up. you good for nothing. . .John do you hear! Get 
that baby some milk! What's that? The baby can go 
where did you say? John Ross, ;f the kind Providence ever 
lets me see the light of another day, I'll see a lawyer and 
have a divorce. Yes. and what's more, John Ross, didn't I 
see you around with that horrid Mr. Thompson again to-day? 
First thing I know you will be chewing tobacco. And that 
old fake about going to Corpuscle meeting is played out. 
I know that you are carousing somewhere. Will you get 
that milk? John, do you hear? O what a life!" A squeak- 
ing of bedsprings, a patter on the floor, a clinking of tin. 
and poor John has a few minutes in which to finish that 
dream of the days when he could stay out after dark. 

It would be pretty hard on "The Mackintosh Brothers"

Sonic llntcresttng Cases. 

— A recent graduate of a medical college, who has been accepted as an interne in Presbyterian Hospital. 
Some years ago his head began to swell and has continued to do so to this day. 

Etiology. Physicians and attendants have failed to find any cause whj his head should swell, for nothing in his 
life or make up ought to make it do so. It is probably due to his lively imagination. 

Treatment. Nothing as yet has been discovered to prevent this abnormal development. " Home treatment " is 
advised. This prescription is also recommended: 

Introspection, • - - - hrs. XXIV. 
Comparison, - - - hrs. XX. 

Mirror, --.--- No. I. 
Plain Speaking Friends, No. V. 


Sig. Use ad lib. 

Prognosis. Unfavorable. 

Otto — - is a young man, who about a year ago met with a strange and serious accident. He won the Brainard 
Prize for dissection and since then has been subject to the most distressing delusions about himself. He bends to enter 
a seven foot door, he has his hats made to order and is also said to believe that a certain brand of beer, which appears 
every spring, has been named from him. As he is a very clever and observing young man. and the affliction is more 
acute than chronic, the prognosis is considered very favorable. 

Charles — - is a fattish, German-descended youth with black eyes and black hair. He has a peculiar habit of 
leaving classes and going directly to Abrams Hotel on Wood street. Here he sits and fills his face until the buckle at 
the back of his trousers will no longer reach the strap, when he emerges in beautiful curved lines. The reduced rates 
to Dwight make the prognosis favorable.

There was a little girl and she had a little curl 
That hung right in the middle of her face; 

But she couldn't keep it there, that little lock of hair,

Rush once had a fair-sized Lamb 
Whose mind was rather slow, 

For everything the lessons taught 
That Lamb he didn't know. 

In classes he was wont to say 
Things not laid down by rule, 

The students passed him up and laughed 
To see this Lamb at school.

When by a stroke quite lucky, 

It left the soil of Illinois 
For Louisville, Kentucky.

About a year and a half ago, we announced that thereafter we should make but one grade of Extracting Forceps, 
those which were known technically as our "Best Quality," and which were, in fact as well as in name, the best in the 

As a result of concentration upon one line, we are now able to reduce the prices of "Best Quality" to those former- 
ly charged for ••Plain Line," as follows: 

All numbers, except as noted below. - - reduced to §2. 50 

Nos. 29, 30, 62, .... 2.25 

Nos. 66, 67, 85. 86, " " 3.00 

Nos. 78, 80, 81. 82. • .. «■ 3 50 

Nos. 88r, 88l, - - 3.25 

There has been no deterioration in material, workmanship or finish. Oar "Best Quality" Forceps are just as they 

always have been, the standard. Between them and the next nearest to them, the difference in quality is so vast that it 

is not a question of comparison. The only way in which they can be correlated is by contrast. At the same time, the 

difference in price is now trifling. 

So confident are we in the processes by which our Forceps are made and tested, that with every pair of them we 
give the following warranty; If the Forceps -prove soft, so as to bend in use. or are broken in consequence of a -palpable 
flaw, a new pair will be given in exchange upon their return to us. direct or through the dealer vending them, within a 
reasonable time after purchase, but we insist upon seeing the Forceps complained of before making any allowance.

Tlie Clinical Review aims to furnish the busy 
practitioner with the best instruction lie can have— 
the purely practical teachings of our best observers 
Thus actual clinics— not prepared ones— are report - 
ed for the pages of this magazine exclusively. In 
this way wherever the reader may be, he is, through 
the Review, "attending clinics" in Chicago. 

Again, to the student of medical literature a 
most valuable feature is presented each month in 
the review of Current Medical Literature 
wherein will be found the titles of most of the lead- 
ing clinical articles in American and English medi- 
cal periodicals, with author's name and reference. 

This is of great value to to those who wish to keep 
up with the literature of their calling, and cannot 
be found elsewhere in this form and convenience. 

Again, the- picture of a recognized clinician appears 
in every issue. 

Resides the above are editorials on medical topics 
of the day, reliable book review-, etc. 

Most of the leading medical scholars of'the 
west receive the "review."
