GAVE HIM A START.
The Way Mark Twain Helped a
Young Doctor to Win
"A certain prominent New York
physician owes hi start to Mark
Twain." said a New York magazine
editor, "and I saw him get it. It was
many years ago and the then young
physician iad just hung out his
shingle. Mr. Clemens knew him
quite well, and so I, and we both b
lieved that he had the real stuff in
him but the people hadn't learned of
him yet, and his office was empty.
One day Mark was in my place talk
ing when a banker of social and fi
nancial prominence came in. Inci
dently he mentioned the fact that his
physician had died the night before
with heart disease and he needed his
services that ver:! minute. Mark at
once suggested that he give our
friend a trial.
" 'What kind of a man is he?" in
quired the banker.
" 'None better, I should -say,' re
sponded Mr. Clemens. 'He has never
lost a patient.'
" 'That sounds good enough. Give
me his address, and I'll go to see
"When he had left the office, I
looked at Mr. Clemens inquiringly.
"Oh, that's all right,' he said with
a sly smile. 'IT said he had never lost
" 'He never had one to lose, did
he?' I asked reprovingly.
" 'Of course not, but it wasn't nec
essary to say that.'
"As it turned out, the humorist was
right, because the young fellow han

and it was the kind of an introduction

Life. The patient was getting well.
In a couple of days of rest and
quiet he would have been all right.
"His pulse," said the Modern Doc
tor, "indicates that streptococci will
arrive on the next train and may
force an entrance if the doors are
left open, and they can't get in with
out registering. His temperature,
although normal, is only this way b'e
cause he didn't expect me," and his
respiration shows plainly that he
must have been drinking Florida
water and swallowed one of the
seeds. This is no time, therefore,
for child's play. We must remove
the appendix at once." "But," said
the Modern Patient, "let mae under
stand the precise reason for this
thing, which I cannot but regard as
a serious matter." -"Ha! Ha!"
laughed the Modern Doctor, "as if,
with thirteen more operations to
perform before the noon bell rings,
I had any time for small talk." So
saying, he clapped on the ether bag,
performed a few deft movements
with the upper arm, and motioning
to his private secretary 'to enter up
the amount on his card system, he
was off once more.

A Yankee woman who moved to
Missouri soon after the war had oc
casion to hire a servant, and the first
who answered her call were two ne
gro girls about 15 or 16 years. The
lady began to inquire as to their cap
abilities. 'Can you cook?" 'No,
'um.' Can you wash and iron?' 'No,
'um.' 'Can you clean ho-1se?' 'No,
'umn.' The lady thought a moment,
then said she, 'Well, what did you do
when you lived with your mistress
and master?' 'Oh,' said one of them
suddenly, 'Suckey, she look for old
marster's slippers, and I keeps de
