THE POPE'S DOCTOR. I AH nrcBBESTTXG CHARACTER SKETCH.—HOW El I DIFFERS FROM HIS ENGLISH COLLEAGUES. I DIFFERS FROM: HISBNGLISH COLLEAGUES. Dr. Lapponi, the famous Physician to the Vatican, whose name has recently come so greatly to the front on account of his unremitting attention to His Holiness the late Pope, Leo XIII., and the high esteem and confidence with which he is regarded by the present Pope, His Holiness Pius X., is a man of commanding genius. But he is something more than that. He is more than a mere man of science. He :s a man of original and independent mind. He etands out among medical men of all nations, themselves THE FLOWER OF THE WORLD'S INTELLECT, I by reason of his fine independent personality. He has had differences with his fellow scientists. But no one has ever disputed for an instant the remarkable nature of his professional attain- ments or the unflinching integrity of his per- sonal character. He is afraid of no man. But he has a higher courage still. He is not afraid of the bugbear of professional etiquette, which frightens even some of the greatest doctors. As an example of this may be mentioned one very interesting respect in which he has differed from the medical men of this country. The latter, are trammelled by medical etiquette. No one disputes their scientific skill or their unselfish devotion to their work. But they are limited in their labours by one remarkable scruple. They will prescribe and experiment with drugs of all kinds sanctioned by the Fhavina- copteia or newly introduced!; but where a medical discovery, even when it is the life-work^ of a regular practising physician, is recommenced to the general public by a manufacturer, profes- sional etiquette steps, in and, frightens them. No matter how overwhelming the evidence of what such a discovery, when sold as a proprietary medicine, has accomplished, they look coldly upon it, and will rarely admit that. they have used it with success. It would be "unprofes- sional" to do so Dr. Lapponi is I TROUBLED WITH NO SUCH SCRUPLES. For instance, the numerous remarkable cures which have been proved by newspaper reports, independently investigated, to have been accom- plished by the medicine sold m England under the fancy name Dr. Williams pink pills for pale people must be well known to all English doctors. They have been published far and wide. There can be no doubt of their accuracy. The names and addresses of thernen and women cured are freely published. Their statements have been investigated by some of the most important newspapers in this country and abroad No one has ever attempted to dispute the facts. But English doctors have never cared to admit publicly that they have availed themselves of the discovery of their colleague, Dr. Williams, who is a graduate of the Univer- sity of Edinburgh. Dr. Lapponi, however, has availed himself of Dr. Williams' discovery, and has, in his own fearless way, had no hesitation in making the fact publicly known. The fol- lowing letter, with his signature, freely avows the facts and endorses the value of Dr. Williams' pink pills with an authority which no one will venture to question. I TRANSLATION: "I certify that I have tried Dr. Williams' pink pills in four cases, of the simple anaemia, of development. After a few weeks of treatment., the result came fully up to my expectations, For that reason I .shall not fail in the future to extend the use of this laudable preparation not only in the treatment of other morbid forms of the category of anaemia or chlorosis, but also in cases of neurasthenia and the, like. (Signed) DR. GIUSEPPE LAPPONI, Physician and Surgeon. Via dei Gracchi 332, Rome." .„ < The simple ancemia of development," referred to by Dr. Lapponi is of course that tired, languid condition of young, girls whose, development to womanhood) is tardy, and whose health, atthe period of that development, is so often imperilled. His opinion of the value of Dr. Williams pink pills for pale people at that time is of the highest scientific authority, and it confirms the many published cases in which ansemaa and other diseases of the bloa as well as the nervous diseases referred! to by Dr. Lapponi, have been cured by these pills, which, it need hardly be mentioned, owe their efficacy to their power of making new blood, andl thus acting directly on the digestive and nervous system. In all cases ol anaemia, threatened consumption, decline, indigestion, kidney disease, and all affections of the nerves, as St. Vitus' dance, paralysis, and locomotor ataxy, they are commended to the confidence of the public, and now that they have received) the emphatic endorsement of so high a professional authority as Dr. Lapponi, the trusted, Physician of the Vatican they will be accepted by the medical and scientific world at their true value.
