A Thousand Dollar's Worth ofGood.

result was surprising. A few doses

In the name of thousands of unbroken

been iought and won; in the name of
thousands of lives rescued from abnormality

name of unshed tears and forestalled
pain and battled death I doff my
hat to-day to the The Doctor.
May he never have use for his own
May each moment of pain he has
saved others shine in the crown of
his life like a bright star.
May the children to whom he has

whom he has saved childreu take

The doctor's work is priestly in its
character. It is the doctor who
enters the sanctum sanctorum of the
life and the home and learns its
secrets. It is the doctor into whose
keeping we give those interests
which are guarded from the world.
The smallest part of our faith in the
doctor relate- to health, or the physical
appearances of life and death.
The doctor's work is more without
the medicine case than with it. The
medicine does not do the patient half
as much good as the doctor does.

The study aud advice of all good
doctors is now toward the end of preventing
as well as relieving sickness.
From the time the doctor starts on
his round in the morning until he
has answered his last night bell he
hears nothing but the groaniugs of
humanity, save when he hear that
lit is giving relief. His life is not
a pleasant one. He cannot claim
one night for sleep, one day for vacation.
All the ulcers, the sores,
the freaks of pain, the wages of sin,
the penalty of ignorance are before
him constantly. Therefore, il you
meet him tomorrow dou't mention
that pain you had over eatiug today.
He hears enough of them.
The doctor will agree with you
that medicine is not an exact science.
You are rot lessening his usefulness
by having him admit that. The
doctor will also agree that this generation
suffers from a more varied
lot of diseases than did our forefath
ers but the doctor didn t invent
them, did he? The doctor will also
agree with you that there are better
things than medicine, but this does
not weaken his authority to say when
medicine is necessary.
From the very fact that medicine
cannot be classed among the exact
sciences we can expect that doctors,
of all studeuts, will be the most
progressive in their experiments and
But for his good deeds, for his
patience, for his skill, for his great
share in the bearing of humanity's
burdens, I doff my hat to The Doctor.
May he live to see all his advice
followed, all his patients cured
and all his bills paid. W. J. C,

Rather Cruel Practical Joke.
A practical joke was played upon
the district of Ballymena. County Antrim,
Ireland. Large posters on walls
and trees announced that the war department
wanted thousands of cats
tor export to stations abroad where
British troops were quartered, as
these stations were overrun with rats.
Prices ranging from 50 cents to one
dollar were offered for healthy animals,
with or without tails. It was
added that n war office agent would
attend at Ballymena Fair Hill to purchase
suitable cats. On the day announced
the roads to Ballymena were
blocked with conveyances of all kinds
filled to the brim with cats. For hours
the owners waited for the "war office
agent." At last it dawned on them
that they had been hoaxed and the
carts rattled homeward with their
