Paid for Talking.

--A trial of some interest to the medical profession has taken place before the Police Court at Paris. A physician was prosecuted for having divulged the nature of his client's disease, and thus injured him. The court found the physician guilty, and sentenced him to imprisonment for one year, to pay a fine of 500f, to be placed for five years under the surveillance of the police, and to pay the costs of the trial. The judgment of court added further, that "inasmuch as by thus divulging the nature of his disease he caused the complainant an injury for which compensation is due him, the tribunal, moreover, condemns the accused to pay the prosecutor a sum of 1,000f. damages."
