Disciple of the Pill Bags

While researching information for the subject of a recent Tombstone Tuesday post, I came across this little nugget of humor:

Dr. A. F. Hand was our next disciple of the pill bags.

That's a curious description of a doctor, especially one of the first in town!  It came from the 1882 History of Grundy County, Illinois, available for free at Google Books.
