ABSTRACT

Some time ago the public was edified by the sensible humor and sarcasm of Mark Twain on the subject of "Christian Science." It is too bad that he, like other mortals, has his share of unwisdom, which he exhibits in recent remarks credited to him, endorsing osteopathy in particular and unlimited license in medical practice generally. He has lived so long abroad, it would seem that he is peculiarly jealous of personal liberty in America, a peculiarity often noticed in other individuals from foreign lands. His long residence in Vienna, where he apparently found matters temporarily satisfactory notwithstanding the police and other regulations, has apparently given him an appetite for license that he wants indulged. The state here, he says, stands for liberty, and without full freedom for osteopathy things would be as unsatisfactory as the garden of Eden was to Adam and Eve; people will want what they can
