UNSOUGHT PUBLICITY.

DR. THOMAS G. NICHOLSON writes to us to say that he recently took ahouse at Marlow and that paragraphs promptly appeared in the localjournals unknown to, and unsought by, himself. On his return totown he found a letter awaiting him from the editor of the

" principal paper" asking for a paragraph containing personalparticulars. Dr. Nicholaon naturally enough replied that he coulddo no such thing, although he had no doubt that the editor wasactuated by the kindliest of motives. The mistaken kindness offriends and would-be friends has before now placed medical men in avery unpleasant situation, but in these days of commercialism theonly thing to do is to follow Dr. Nicholson’s example-namely,protest and, if possible, prevent such action.

He said that Mr. X. had just been defeated in thecounty council election by the resident medical man, of whose exist-ence I had not heard when I set out on my voyage of discovery; thatthe said practitioner was a red-hot politician, and that, of course, hecould not attend to politics and his practice, and that some peoplewere complaining of the practitioner’s neglecting them.When we arrived at a road branching off to Mr. X.’s house I became

curious to know where the doctor lived. " Straight on that way, nearthe bottom of the village," said the deputy. "Thank you," said I,11 Good day, I will go on and see him"; and I left Mr. -. I found
