The Doctor came first to our village

called himself a widower, and was
ther handsome too, but for all that

I don't think that he got many ps
;t:ts at first, for ali he had a sign with
M. Rose, M. D., in gilded letters,
H>ve the door of his office.
He bad not been io our village more
lan a mouth when Mrs. Wiggins, the
ressmaker, arrived, and fitted up a shop
litt opposite the doctor's office.
The dressmaker was also tall and
irk, but unlike the Doctor, she had a
;aked nose and sharp black eyes.
They were a strange pair, fur, though
ley never spoke to each other and
[either owned to having made the
jither'? acquaintance, they took care to
irow themselves in each other's way,
[nd by their actions to show their coo
?.mpt for each oilier.
If the doctor chanced to be passing
[he dressmaker's shop slam would go
door in his face, and if the drcss
jaker chanced to be passing the doctor's
Office f he woithy Al D, would turn

annoy each other, and some of the
lischievously inclined resolved to help
One morning we were all astonished
it seeing the doctor and dressmaker had
Exchanged signs. This made couside.a
)le ?port, for neither of the two seemed
know anything about the matter.and
>f course no one took the trouble to io
Now it happened on that day that a
couple of strangers came into our village
from the couti try. They had been
married but a few weeks, and the fond
husband, as soon as he cadd to town,
purchased a nice dress for his bride.
.I think Charlie," she said, ''that I
j will have it cut by a dressmaker before
go i ni: home, for I might nor get the
chance again for a mouth." .
.'Very well, my love," returned the
husband. "There is ooc just ahead of
us ; you can step in there."
"Aod there is a aoct"r's sign on thc
other side, Charles. While I am getting
my dress cut you can drop in at the
doctor's, and get that mediciue for Mr.
"So I can, Julia, for I am glad that
you reminded me of ic, or I should have
And the two parted, one going into
the doctor's office with her dress, and
the other into the dressmaker's shop to
procure some mediciue.
"Hem !" coughed the latter, bowing
before Mrs. Wiggins ; "is your busbaud
at borne, madam ?"
"And pray win, told you I had a hus?
band, biri"' was asked in return.
"Hem! a mistake-your brother, I
mean," apologized the young man
"My brother? I have no brother."
."Well, it is the doctor I wish to see,
"The doctor, sir ! Do you mean to in?
sult me ?"
"Why, no. I saw the sign and"
"You must be drunk !" she exclaimed,
indignantly ; "mine is a dressmaker'!
"I beg your pardon, madam, but let
me request you to read for yourself, ano
you will find that"
"As if I don't know what is on mj
own sign ?" she interrupted, rising
hastily and going to the door.
"The wretch !" abe cried, as her eye?
rested on the doctor's name. "To think
that he dared do such a thiug ! i'll teal
his eyes out!"
While this interesting scene was being
enacted at the dressmaker's, another nc
less so was transpiring at the doctor's
Wheo Julia left her husbaud, sht
tripped up stairs aud knocked lightly ai
the door of the doctor's office.
The worthy M D. answered thc sum
mons in person.
Supposing him to be the husband o
the dressmaker, ehe made known he

sir, to have a dre-s cut."
"A dress cut? he repeated in astonish

"Ah sir, I beg pardon, I thought tba
Mrs. Wiggins resided here."
"Mrs. Wiggins! No, indeed, ma'am
- that amiable person holds forth oi
the other side of thc street. Though i
you don't want your dress spoiled yo
better keep away from her."
"Dosen't she have any sign," aske
the little lady wonderingly.

The doctor popped out his head, bo

"Afjnes!" echoed Mrs. Wiggins
mentally. "Surely the man must be
going crazy. My name is not Agoes

A scientific Frenchman has made the
discovery that the ordinary tea drinker

leather enough to make a pair of boots.
The reason of this may readily be made
clear. A decoction of tea contains tannin,
as tannie acid, in solution; milk contains
albnmen, and as these two substances
are the chief ingredients of leather, and
as they actually unite and form leather
when brought into contact with each
