    Notes parliamentary discussion of a bill for 'doing a little justice to the Medical men who look after the poor', including John Brady's description of the poor pay and grave working conditions of such practitioners. Punch supports this with several facts and figures. Explains that the bill aims to provide poor-law union medical officers with a superannuation scheme.
