Tte provincial young rann has
never possessed any attractions for
me, and it is certain th*t if I had
not gone up north to stay with
Daisy Drysdale I should sere? have
known so weU such .a striking spec
imen of the type aa Dr. Wedmore.
He was a stoutieh young man of
thirty-two, with nondescript fea
tures and a slow, portentous man
ner. He had a largo and increasing
practice in the Butyirb of Northaw,
where his medical pkill was in con
stant request among the spinsters
and widows of that somewhat damp
and chilly neighborhood. So high
ly esteemed were his services in the
sickroom that these ladies, would
send for him at all hours of the day
or night until the good doctor in
aelf defense took to scuding his red
haired assistant to some of his more
flagrant malades imaginaires.
Daisy Drysdale** husband was a
manufacturer i?. ??aclie?l?r, auu?
like other manufacturers, he Jived
as far away from the factory chim
neys of that thriving city as possi
ble. So his brand new red prick
mansion lay on the other side of tho
suburb of Northaw, and thc society
of Northaw supplied nearly all Mrs.
Drysdale's intellectual recreation.
Poor Daisy I How she missed the
city! She had a genius for giving
little dinners, but of what use was
that, seeing tho component elements
of which her parties were to be
henceforth composed? Still she was
not to bo baffled, and Mrs. Drysdale
constantly entertained. The night
after I arrived one of these dinners
was given in my.honor, and I was
sent down to the dining room with
I shall not easily forget that night.
'Accustomed to the manifestly insin
cere gushings of London young men,
I was astonished at the naive man
ner in which this country .?Escula
pius tried in vain to hide his sudden
admiration. It came out in every
word and look. It was a case ol
'love at first eight" on the part ol
Dr. Wedmore. Before I left the din
ner table he had offered to lend me
a horse, proposed that he should
drive me to a meet ten miles off and
expressed a wish that I should know
his three sisters.
But the next time I saw him my
head was tied up in a flannel shawl
and my throat was so swollen 1
could hardly speak. The doctor had
been called in professionally. Thc
climate of Mudchester had been too
much for me, and I was down with &
malignant sore throat.
The doctor came every day, and
once he came twice, to work a pat
ent inhaler and paint my throat
with some mysterious compound
He constantly changed the treat
ment. It WES as if ne could nevei
do enough. He even used to brins
me flowers-and who ever heard ol
a doctor taking his patient flowers ?
Daisy was convulsed with amuse
ment. She said that when she wai
ill she sometimes used to have tc
send for Dr. Wedmore two or three
times before he appeared, he was sc

and in ten days I was quite well. ]
really felt very grateful, for I kne*.
that the doctor had saved me by hil
constant care from a dangerous ill
ness: I wonder if he took my grat
itude for-something stronger!
'Anyway, as I told Christina whet
abe scolded me for the whole affair
it was not my fault. 1 hadn't fallez
in love with Dr. Wedmore; thatt
The thing came quickly to a cri
sis. We /were all invited to spend ai
evening at the doctor's house. Ii
the north they have a mysterioui
meal called "high tea,*' which is ap

down my back.
Five times did I get up. croes the
room, engago either of the solemn
Misses Wedmoro in feverish conver
Bfltion-I slwaya ended by finding
the doctor at my elbow. At last I
resigned myself to my fate and sat
down to talk to him. I imagined
that the state of drains in the sub
urbs of N orthaw would be a rafe
subject and one unlikely to lead to
a declaration of a tender nature,
but in this, it appeared, I was mis
taken. We got on to the subject of
fevers, and to convince me on a cer
tain point tho doctor suggested a
reference to one of tho medical
books in his surgery. Once inside
the little room, wnicn lay just across
the passage, Dr. Wedmore shut the
door and advanced toward me with
that particular expression which is
so intolerable in a young man one
doesn't care for. '
I pat on my most mdi?ereiii man
ner and inspected with much inter
est the rows of medical books in
their glass cases.
"So kind of you," I said hniTiedly
to fill up the dreadful pause, "to
take so much, trouble. Most doctors
only laugh at one if one wants to
know any real fact-about your
dreadful trade," I added, with flip
pancy, seeing that the man was not
listening to a word I was Baying,
but was gazing at me as the snake is
popularly supposed to regard the

can anything be a trouble that is

rupted this speech. A servant came

"A three mile drive," said Dr.
Wedmore, with a sigh, "and I shall
not see you again tonight." He
took my hand and held it fast.
"I will bring the book tomorrow
morning," he said. "Shall I have a
chance of seeing you alone? Try
to be alone when I come." And,
wrenching my hand violently, the

La Grippe Quickly Cared.
"In tho winter or 1898 and 1899 I
was taken down with asevere attaokof
what is called La Grippe," says F. L.
Hewett, a promi aent druggist of Win
field, III. "The only medicine I used
was two bottles of Chamberlain's
Congh Bemedy. It broke up tho cold
and stopped the coughing like magic,
and I have never since been troubled
with Grippe." Chamberlain's Cough
Bemedy can always be depended upon
to break up a severe cold and ward off
any threatened attack of pneumonia.

THE OLDEST MONASTERY,

In the early part of tho fifth cen
tury the Sabaites took possession of
it. This was an order of monks of
which San Sabas was the superior.
Tho larger part of the monastery
was built by them. Their numbers
finally so increased that tho mon
astery would not hold them all, and
10,000 took up their abodo in rock
caves in the" mountain opposite.
Four thousand remained in tho
monastery proper. In the seventh
century tho Persian hordes attack
ed and plundered them. After that
a castleiiko tower was built to serve
as a defense.
Later another tower was added to
it, and, strange to relate, this last
was a monument to a woman's love.
It was built by the Empress Eu

and so bo near to Euthymius, a

How the Gems Are Matched and Oracl

Pearla arrive from India an?!, other
parta of the world in email bunches,
with ?liver tassel ends. They aro
then handed to the stringer, who
lays them out anon a long velvet
covered tray furnished with grooves
of various sizes and depths. The
pearla are then put into tho grooves
ready to be matched. Presuming a
rope has to bo made of fairly fine
stones, tho first thing to be done is
to pick out the largest and finest
pearl and place it alone in one of
tho large grooves. This forms tho
center of tho rope. Then the two
next best pearls of equal color, size
and shape aie??cked out and placed
one on each ROT* of the center pearl

the two ends aro reached. They are

Curiously enough, this particular
industry has been for generations
in the hands of ono family, which, it
is needless to say, is well known
among all who have dealings with
these precious gems, and it is by
this family that so many of tho

New York's Flower Traffic
Some idea of the magnitude of
the New York flower trade may bo
obtained from the costliness of the
floral decorations on certain notable
occasions. A million dollars is spent
every year in New York on wedding
flowers alone. To decorate a church
like St. Bartholomew's, even with a
marked degree of simplicity, costs
at least $1,000. At Christmas and
Easter the New York churches fair
ly bloom with lilies. One New York
florist raises in his greenhouses 50,
000 lilies for Easter decorations
alone. At the balls given in New
York the floral decorations are un
rivaled in the world.
Palms, ferns and the other greens
which are the bases of all decora
tions are on most occasions supplied
by florists making a specialty of
growing plants for that purpose.
The class of plants fitted for deco
ration are often difficult of increase
and slow of growth and are there
fore more valuable than the com
mon plants. They are rarely bought
when used at public dinners or even
private receptions, but are hired for
about half their value.-Everybody's
