A Detroit physician during the recent

"Excuse me," said the Doctor, "I

you something. Tom, let me feel your
pulse. Now you, Henry. Now, then,
Tom, get your beer."
While Tom was drinking his beer the
Doctor seated Hinry in a chair and
gave him a fan. At the end of five
minutes Tom joined them, saying.
"Ah-h, but that goes to the right spot!
I feel cooler."
"Do you?" asked the Doctor. "Your
pulse has increased just eight beats to

six, making a difference of fourteen in
his favor. Wait a bit; don't let's start
