Medicines for the Poor.

--The Overseers of the Poor of Richmond have authorized the apothecaries of the city to furnish medicines, on city account, for the use of such persons residing within the corporate limits as may not be able to pay for them. Orders for medicines, signed by the attending physicians, and endorsed by them "For the Poor," shall be the necessary authority for furnishing the same. This is as it should be, and it is to be hoped that all physicians will take due care that the charity of the city in this matter is not abused.
