DR. GAIUS J. JONES, FOR PRESIDENT OF THE INSTITUTE.

"Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, others have greatness thrust upon them.” This well known quotation has a special significance, when applied to Dr. Gaius J. Jones, of Cleveland. If he had not been born great he could not have accomplished the great amount of good that is distinctly traceable to his direct efforts. A long, honorable career is his. For the past thirty-five years he has taught his classes in the Cleveland College. Hundreds of physicians, now located throughout the United States, owe much to his greatness as a teacher. Kindly, practical and persevering in his determination that the students in his classes have only the best instruction, he has made a lifelong friend of every student who has had the opportunity to be taught by him. Now these same men and women desire the greatest honor that can be given by the homeopathic profession be conferred upon him. The Presidency of the American Institute of Homeopathy is a most responsible position. A great man is required to fill the place.

That Professor Jones is the man for the place is claimed by his innumerable friends. At their urgent request he has consented to be a candidate for President of the Institute. Dozens of letters have been received from prominent Homeopaths favoring his candidacy. He has not sought this great honor. It has been thrust upon him.

I described my method of operating, the technique being so simplified that the entire series could
