profession honorable in all times The profession of
medicine contributes more names handed down in
history than does any other. Hippocrates li the best

A good storj comes from Nor walk, Cjqq.
One day last week a gaunt, slab-sided chap,
with particles of hayseed on his coat and lu his
tow colored hair, stepped up to the telegraph of.
See at the depot and asked If the boss was la.
The operator assured him that he was, and his
rural friend went on to relate thathehal lired
np In Danbury, had come down from there that
morning, and Intended to bring bis brother's dog,
which a man In Norwich wanted to buy, but had
forgotten It, and wanted to know Ifthe dog could
be sent down there by telegraph. The min of

'Certainty, sin that Is a milter or dally oc
currence. All that Is necessary rr you to do Is
to give me a description or the dog, so tint no
mistake can be made; call again In abjut halfan
hour and the dog will be here."
"It Is a yellow dog, with small ears, and Is
about to high," said the stranger, placing his
band eighteen Inches from the ffoor. He then
took his departure with the remark that he
would call again soon. The operator then
sent bis messenger boy to look for a dog
as near to the description as possible,
which he loon succeeded in finding. It was
at once brought to the office, and seeured
to the operator's desk by means of a piece of tele.
graph wire. Altera little coning the dog was
made to lie quietly doirn, and everything was In
readiness for our rural friend. Punctual to the
i,m,!,i,.W1!i,a bK m,,u u1' apprance, and
asked IT the dog had come.
. ".I w!n '."'" ,aid JL0 operator, and stepping up
?", he tapped u few times on the
key, at the same 1 1me Inserting his leg under the
desk he managed to step on the dog's toes, which
caused the canine to yelp. "Ah! he'e coming,"
said the operator, and then tapping more furious
ly on the key, he at the same time kicked the do
roin under the table, who, not relishing this
kind of treatment, harked furiously and
ran around the otllce with tbe wire .
tached to his neck. "Fllty cents, slr,' sail
the operator, turning round to tbe countrynnn
' Uncommon nice dog, must be worth W: but ho
Is the hardest dog I arer received orer the wire.
He Is so muscular, you see, that he hroke the
