The Ute Dr* ^ates B. Ballard, for
more theo a -generation the leading
physician at St. Jobnbury, Vt., did
not always rely upon drags for a eure.
He was of fine pr?sence and heroio
proportions, and waa a very pictur
esque user of profane language when
ocoasion made it expedient.
Being called one night in the dead
of winter to the bedside of a farmer
who had been suffering from an in
cessant attack of hiccoughs for three
days, and was near death, he wrapped
himself up ia bis fur coat, pulled his
fur hat dowe over bis face, leaving
but little visible besides his oyes and
his whiskers, and hurriedly drove
He did not stop for preliminaries,
but entered the house and without a
word passed into the siok room. Be
fore che invalid knew he was there he
jumped on tho bod, grabbed him by
tho throat, and raising him from his
pillow by the neck, exclaimed:
"D-n youl I want youl" '
The man not only survived heart
disease, but never hiccoughed again.
You never see a ship laughed ou a
Friday, and similarly a new locomo
tive hardly ever makes a trial trip on
that day or on the 13tb of the month.
Even though the superintendent maj
jeer at the superstition, yet he knowe
too well to tat it at caught, for just as
sailors consider that some ships ar*
unlucky, so do train hands credit per

Tttt Fanner and the Auto.
Some years ago sooo after tho auto- j
mobiles began to be used, throughout \
the United States, an agent of a New j
York house turned up at a sillago in
central New York. He explained to an (
old farmer tho virtues of the new ma- .
chine, dwelling upon what a time eav- ?
er it was, and withal how fashionable
it would be for the farmer to be able \
to ride dowo to tho village in one of ?<
the new fangled machines whenever
he wanted to. g
"Why," said the salesman, "when
ever you go to the poBtoffice, bank or ^
store, everybody will slop and Btaro at f
Farmer Wilson, and pretty soon you
will bo the most talked of man in thc J
The farmer thought he needed a
cow more than an auto, but finally
agreed to lot the agent bring ouo of ]
the maobinos over. When tho r.gent
returned with it some days later the
farmer took him in charge and carried
him out to the lot and showed him a
fine Jersey cow.
"That's what I bought with the
money I saved up for you," said the
farmer. And without waitiog for the
agent to recover from his surprise he
went on: "I Mowed Iueeded the oow
morn'n I did the maohine, and there,
ain't- ehe a beaut?"
When the agent recovered his
breath he o aid:
*'You'll look funny riding that cow
to town, won't yon?'
"Ya-es," drawled the old farmer;
"but I'd look a dara sight funnier
trying to milk an automobile."
