Reform Your Doctors' Bills



News-Commentary, Drollery

    Responds to an article in the Morning Herald concerning doctors' charges for simply uttering such phrases as 'ahem' in front of patients. Cynically notes that a doctor's skill makes his otherwise crude medical treatment worth its price, and suggests that practitioners should 'charge for their opinions, as expressed in interjections'.
