The Navarro County Medical Society met at Emhouse July 18th [1913]. This was one of the most enjoyable meetings of the season, there being a full attendance of physicians and lay visitors. An address was given by Dr. Bristow after which Dr. Kelton, president, briefly explained what organized medicine is and what accomplishments are expected to be made in preventing and combating disease. The climax of the evening was Rev. Abe Mulkey's observations on the necessity of hospitals. He spoke of conditions prevailing in the county and said in plain English that it was to the shame of Navarro County, as prosperous as it is, to have no hospital within its bounds to care for a case of charity. His whole speech was interspersed with wit, humor and sense, but woe to the man who does not spell HOSPITAL in big letters in Abe's presence.

New members of the Navarro County Medical Society in June 1912: Z. T. Hodge, Corsicana; M. W. Ellis, Blooming Grove; W. H. Roberts, Frost; K. W. Rowe, Kerens; H. L. Mathews, Dawson; J. P. Worsham, Emhouse; Hugh Sloah, Rice and A. D. Sanders, Purdon.
