REID POINTS WAY
Ah! Now we can all be doctors,
lawyers, dentists, mechanical en

work, a couple of dollars, a friend or
two on the board of examination,
and, presto, you are the member of

university he went before the board
of examiners of stationary ingineers,
took an examination and passed. His
only tuition fee was the price of a
