In all ' my travels, from Maine to Rhode Island. I've never come across a couple more unlike than what Mr. and Mis' Nims was. Mr. Nims was one of these shut-up-to-himself men. and he'd glum 'round for days over tome little matter that a word would a set right if he'd only been plain-hearted. Mis" Nims was all the other way talk it out and done with it; a little hasty and imprudent, maybe, but she is well-meaning-. Mis' Nims is, and as (rood a woman to neighbor with as I want to see. I hev thought whether or no beiup; of different persuasions didn't work to keep 'em apart. See, she was brought up an orthodox, and he favored the Methodists. She joined with him and laid out to do her part amongst 'em. but she never was to home with the Methodists. Then, another thing-, she hated a dog-, and Mr. Nims must alwa3s have a great clumsy hulk, good for nothing but to bark and eat and lie arouad un der -foot, while Mis Nims, 6he marn't have even a kitten, though she set everything by a cat. And so it went. One day I stepped in to borrow M is' 'Nims cutting--board, and just as I got to the door I heard her say: "You ain't going to turn Charley in amongst my flowers, be ye" lie didn't condescend any reply not as I could hear. "Now, Mr. Nims," says she, "he's stepped on my pansy-bed and broke off a dahlia a'ready. Ain't there any other place on this whole farm where you can put him? I don't want him here," says she. Mr. Nims' countenance didn't change more than a wooden Indian. " "I do," says he. "There's a good bat ing of grass to be fed down, and I cal culate to leave Charley here for a spell," says he. And he budgetiroff as still as though he'd swallowed a a ramrod. Mis' Nims didn't say a word more, but she gave that old dog a push that sent him out of doors with a yelp; and I didn't blame her a mite, nuther. 1 brought the cutting-board back as they was a-settin down to dinner, and Mis' Nims asked me to draw up to the table. She had an excellent dinner Mis' Nims is an elegant cook but not one identical word did he speak, only to ask if I'd have another potato. She seemed chipper enough, but I see a shadow pass over her countenance when the old horse sneezed right un der the window where her piney bed was, and the dog, that had got back under the table by that time, yopped out as though somebody had accident ally trod on his tail. Mr. Nims was a great hand for rais ing colts, but she was a terrible scary creature; and I expect riding after half-broken colts has given her a fit of the neuralogy many's the time. lie was areadful set .n his way same as the general run of men air and it was like fighting the east wind to try to move him out of iL Them two used to remind me of a pair oT napajawed scissors that you can't cut with. Some might have put the heft of Cue blame on to her; arm 1 s'pose she did nan; him some, au.l ila.-.h oui. when fehe'iJr belter have kep' still. I run in one day to borrow a sleev. pattern, when 1 heard Mr. Nim;, speaking out kind o' gruff, and 1 hail ed, for I didn't wish to intrude. (I never wear squeaky shoes myself). 1 didn't find out what went before, but the first I heard was this: "I can't please you," says he. (It beat me if he d ever tried.) "You don't like my hired nieu, you ain't sat isfied with my breed of cows, the color of the corn barn don't suit ye. and I'm thinking you'll be happier if we divide and separate. You've always thought more of your brother Asa than you do of me, aud you can be free to go to him, so you'll Iwj well fixed." "Why, Mr. Nims!" I heard her kind o' gasp out, and I surmised by the sound that she let fall a teacup. I I looked to hear her burst out in her quick way, and I'll warrant ye he supposed she'd flare up, and that would be the end on't Kut she seemed duin founded. I5y n' by she said, quite quiet: "I'm sure Asa would be pleased to have me there. He misses Sarah Jane, and so do the children. There has to Ims somebody at the head to make things so. Hut what would you do, Elisha?" I had to smile, for she scarcely ever called him Klisha. "I can look out for myself, says he, and stalked off to the barn. 1 went ritrht in, and said I guessed I could tell what was in his mind. He waa calculating to make a home for his mother, and get along they two to gether. Old lady Nims never was any too particular, aud now she had the shaking palsy. So I could see Mia' Nhns set right to thinking how things would go to wrack and ruin under such no maingement. She is an awful nice housekeeper herself, and set a great store by her things. She made an ar rant tip chamber pretty soon, and was gone quite a spelL When she came down her eyes were some red, but sh .tutted it out and went on as matter-of-fact as the cows coming home. "I've got to flax around," says she, "and get Elisha's new shirt done; and there's the pickle-vinegar needs scald ing, and the brine, too. And 1 was laying out to put up a few more quinces. Elisha is very partial to quince sauce." The next day I went over to offer my help, and she seemed glad to have me there. I guess she felt she must let out a little to somebody, and she knows I'm no hand to run and tell. She told me they were going to Squire Hosley's to get his help about a divi sion of the property. She wanted to wait till after Monday, so she could get one more wash done, but Mr. Nims had laid out to begin cutting corn Monday; and Saturday suited his time best. Pretty soon she said: "I hope you'll look in and do what you can to see that Elisha is comfortable," says Vhad my thoughts, but I kep ein to myself, and only saW I should ad mire to do anything I could. Then she hushed up and said no more. , Squire Hosley's wife is second cousin to me, and she had been after me to help about her sewing. So 1 thought I might as well go there Saturday as any day. . The squire's office is at one side ol the house, with a door openlug into the orchard and another door opening into a little back room. Mis' llosley uses this for a sewing room. So there L was. I had set the door into the ofliiv on the jar the room being so small and close. It was still work that I was upon, mending stockings and the children's clothes, and I couldn't help but hear all that was said in the otlice. Mr. Nims made the explanation of what they wanted, and said it was un derstood between them that he kep the house and farm. I'll warrant ye! I knew he'd never yield an inch of his ground. He was a man who wanted all the land joining his, and to plant in your garden. "The bed and table stuff is hers," said he. "Oh, no, Elishar says she, "I don't consent to that. Sarah Jane had a good setting-out. and Asa's house is full. IJesides, if I find I need more things 1 can make 'em, and your moth er's eyesight plagues her. She can't do as she could once," she says. "The bed and table furnishings are hers," Mr. Nims repeated. "What she didn't make she bought with her but ter money." "No, 'Lisha," Mis' Nims began; but Squire Hosley interrupted her. I see they was beginning to wear on his patience. "Why not put the property in two piles and draw cuts, if you've no choice. That would be fair. says he. I knew by the way I heard her snuff that Mis' Nims hadn't give up, though she said no more not then; but from that they went on to wrangle over every stick of furniture. She should have no use for this, that aud the other thiug. An' no more wouldn't he. I could hear the squire drum on the table, and I knew he was getting rest less. Finally he made an end of the talk by saying: "Why not let Mr. Nims keep the downstairs furniture, and she take what is above? How would that do?" Well, they demurred, each one being afraid the other would be cheated, but at last, seemingly, let it go. and worked their way on to the live stock. "Three cows for her,' says he. "Two will be full and plenty for me. She was always more for a dairy than what I was," he says. "Why, 'Lisha. you are going to make beef of old Hrindle," says she, "and that leaves only four." "I've concluded not to beef her, she is such a favorite of yours," says he. That was a great piece of news. Mrs. Nims had felt awful cut up about having Brindle fatted and killed, for sue called that cow the best for butter in the herd, ltut Mr. Nims appeared firm. "And the pigs," he began. "I don't want any pigs! I've no use for em. What can I do with pigs down to Baker street?" And she burst out crying. She had set a gotxl deal by that litter of pigs, bringing em up by hand, as you might say, for the old mother died when they were eight days old. After that it was still as death for a minute, then Squire Hosley spoke up. "My good friends," says he, "if you can't agree alxnit living apart, my best advice is that you agree to go on liv ing together." For a minute or two all was still again, and the old clock ticked up like the Day of Judgment. By 'n' by Mr. Nims spoke rather low: "What do you say, Louisv?" "I was thinking whether we hadn't oughter drive over to your mother's and see how her cough is. I'm some worried about that cough," says she. "I'm agreeable to that," says he. As I was leaning forward. I caught sight through the crack of the door of him mopping up his face with his old red handkerchief; so I see he had felt it some. Squire Hosley, he said noth ing. Well, I made my way home middling early, and was keeping a watchout as they driv into the yard betwixt sun down and dark, and 1 see her stop and pat the yellow dog that was flopping his tail on the top step of the piazza. Old Bose was so tickled that he jumped 'round as graceful as a cow; and I knew by the looks of the back of Mr. Nims' neck that he took it in. After awhile I made an arrant to carry over a dish of Dutch cheese, and there they were, eating their supper as cheerful as a basket of chips. "Set up and have a cup o tea," says she. "We've had quite a ride this afternoon," says she. "We've been to see Mother Nims, and Elisha drove 'round by the bridge. It is all of a mile further, but he knows how skit tish I be about crossing the ferry in Uncle Seth's old scow. I'm silly, I s'pose. Elisha and I, we think mother is getting too old and feeble to live alone, and we have about persuaded her to break up and come to us." She run on tor a spell, but that was all she said concerning their arrange ments. And would you believe it? from that day to this Mis' Nims has never opened her mouth to me on the subject, though she knows 1 never re peat. And now. to see them two jog ging 'round together after old Charley, as content as ducks in a millpond, no body mistrusts it took e'ena'most a separation to unite them. Nobody knows but me and the old squire. It won't get out from him he is as close-mouthed as a fish. And I was never one to talk. Outlook. THE STAGE. Saint Saexs is said to have composed a humorous fantaie zoologique entitled "La Carnival des Animaux." "Gt'ERxiCA," an opera by Paul Vidal, on an episode of the Cariist insurrec tion in the Basque provinces in 1S73, has leen brought out with great suc cess at the Paris Opera Coinique. A Home of Rest, "where tired actors may recuperate," to be supported en tirely by the dramatic profession has just been started in England with Beer bohm Tree for its president. Karl Reixecke, who for thirty-five years has been director of the famous (iewandhaus concerts at Leipsig and professor of the piano in the conserva tory, is seventy-one years old, and wishes to resign his office. Mxi e. Bf.rxiiardt has Wen asked how it is that she wears so well. The an swer she gives is that she never thinks. She plays to her fingertips. Her life is acting. Reflection she leaves to the dreamers. "It is thought that wears one out." JUSTICE JACKSON'S TERM. Next to the Shortest tn tbe Ilixtorjr or the I'niteU State. Supreme Court. Justice Jackson's service of two years on the supreme bench of. the United States is one of the shortest terms in the history of the court. The only shorter term was that of Justice Har rison, who was appointed in 17VJ and resigned the office in the same year to become chancellor of his native state. Maryland. Chief Justice Rutledge, the mly man to be twice appointed to the .supreme bench, says the New York Sun. resigned the office of associate justice in 1 !I, after two years of serv ice, to liecome chief justice of South Carolina. He was named chief justice of the United States supreme court in 17.5. and presided one term, but the nomination was rejected by the senate leeause it was discovered that his mind had lieeome impaired. Associate Jus tice Trimble, of Kentucky, died in 1 s after tvo years of service. These are the only justices whose terms have lecn as short as that of Justice Jack son, save one of his associates, still UKn the bench. The longest terms were those of Chief Justices Marshall and Story, each of whom served thirty-four years. Five others served over thirty years, five le tween twenty-five and thirty, six le tween twenty and twenty-five, nine between fifteen ami tweuty, six be tween ten and fifteen, seventeen be tween five and ten. and eight less than five years. Some of those included in this summary are still ipon the bench. Justice Field, appointed in lsii'i. is the oldest in point of service of the present liench. and his term approaches the the longest in the history of the court. . RATHER ABSENT MINDED. Tli. 1'rofew.sor Thought the I'nder rie Crust Wan w Little Touch. A certain one of our scientific men a man whom you can't help knowing if you have had much business with the Smithsonian institution has the repu tation tif lieing extremely absent-mind-2d. says the Washington Star. I don't believe most of the stories they tell alout him, but here is one on whose truth I am willing to stake my lest iKinnet. He's a married man. this scien tific person, and his wife is a good housekeeix-r. She is an excellent cook, too, but she prefers to buy most of her pastry ready made. She Knight a pie the other day. a juicy pie, a blueterry pie. in fact. All day long it lay on the pun try shelf in one of those thin paste lxard plates bakery pies always come in. Its juice gradualy soaked through the lower crust you know how blue Wrry pies do and when the lady of the house that is to say, the cook put it on the dinner table, the paste Kard plate went with it.

His wife kept silence. He ate the top crust and the blueberries and the bottom crust and the jiaste board slice till he had eaten aliout half.

Singular R fault of a. Sarreon's Experiment In ;raftln Reptile. Dr. G. A- Countryman, of Mellette, S. D., possesses a combination snake, says the Minneapolis Journal. It is half garter and half sand snake, and this peculiar composition was made possible by a surgical ojeratioii performed by a doctor. His attention was directed to snakes from observing that when a snake is killed its tail appears to live until the sun goes down, when life ceases. It is thought by many that this is owing to the nerves, but the doe tor was somewhat skeptical on this point. Being a surgeon he dissected several and made some interesting dis coveries. He found that in lioth the sand and garter snakes the spinal col umn extended little more than half the length of the body. Knowing that it was possible to graft flesh, this led him to chloroform them and try splicing them, making the splice, of course, lie low the end of the spinal column. He made four unsuccessful attempts, but succeeded in the fifth. The grafted snake he has now is apparently in good health and the joined parts are per fectly knitted together. Its body is uf the sand snake and its tail is a garter snake's. The sand snake is spotted and looks exactly like a rattlesnake, while the garter snake is strijH'd and its color is of the different shades of green and yellow. Both of these varie ties of snakes are harmless and com mon throughout the slate. Saved by a Doc. A large Newfoundland dog saved a boy's life at Baltimore recently. The loy is eight years old, and the dog. formerly a tramp, is now well cared for. The boy ami the dog were romp ing on the dock in the morning, when the boy accidentally fell overboard. There are twenty feet of water in the dock. The big Newfoundland saw the lxy fall, and just as he came to the sur face sprang into the dock and swam to the fast sinking boy. The boy clutched the woolly hair on the dog's neck, which kept him afloat, and then the dog started to swim with his burden to the other side of the dock. A man rushed to the rescue and when the dog reached the place jumped into a rowboat and managed to pull both the dog aud the boy out of the water. The dog became a hero in the eyes of the people who had been attracted to the scene and he was given a first-class dinner for his heroism. MULTUM IN PARVO.

The astonishment in the word was simply indescribable, as Harry Mc Dougall dropped his paper and regard ed his cousin in dignified amazement. A prettier cousin than usual she was just then, her blue eyes and pink cheeks a little bluer and pinker, as she viewed her surprised relative, who soon found voice to remonstrate: "Do you mean to say that you, whose sole ambition should lie the enhancing oi woman s chief virtue, retiring mod esty, are really proposing to enter my mill as bookkeeper? 1 f so, you are either very ignorant of what would be ex lected of you in that capacity or j-ou are forgetting what is due your own womanhooJ. Henrietta McDougalL 1 am ashamed of you!" The subject of this tirade merely gave her decided chin a little lift, and made answer: "You need not flatter yourself that j-ou are going to extinguish me with your heroics, Harry, for I most cer tainly do intend to go into an office even if the shock should prove serious to your conservative organization. As you refuse my offer. I shall take a posi tion with the Big Salt Lumber com pany; but I thought it would be pleas ant to work with you." The young man cleared his throat two or three times beforw he found voice for expostulation. "But. Henrietta, it is not a woman's place. Contact with men in business life disarms woman of her best weapon, t-ud withal her greatest charm. She wrecks her own matrimonial chances; for, you see, when men marry, they do not choose the girls who have thrust themselves forward, but tie for life to the home girl. Then, too," continued he, with a touch of pomposity, "woman's brain is of such different caliber that she is never a success in the business world. While I esteem you very highly as a friend and cousin, I could not give you a place in mv office. I must have the broad-r out look of a man, and do not feel that I could trust any woman with such a responsible position as that held by niy book kce per. " This time there was no mistaking the real indignation in the girl's face aud voice. "Harry, I should be very angry with J-our insinuations, but I really ouly pity one who holds such warped view s. I want you to understand that girls nowadays are not compelled to go about on tiptoe and w ith bated breath for fear of spoiling their matrimonial chances. Talk about trustworthiness! Who absconds with the employer's money? Not the woman. Talk about the "broader outlook!' Wait until your cross-eyed bookkeeper goes to South America with the contents of vuur safe, and you will wish you had one of the untrustworthy women in his place." "lont let us quarrel, my dear," patronized Harry, "for I did not wish to oiTend you. 1 was shocked that you, so young, so pretty, wished to do uiau's w-ork." "It is not man's work, Harry," said the girh quickly. "Work is classified according to its excellence, and not the sex of the worker. But there is no use in arguing with you," turning to leave the room. "On second thought," and she paused on the threshold, "let me predict that you will fall hopelessly in love with one of this very clxss of women, marry her, and become a thorough convert to the idea of women in business." "Marry a creature of that stamp? Not until 1 become an imbecile. I shall marry for a companion; a woman who will know her sphere and keep iL Harry McDougall was not at heart an intolerant man, but his whole life environment had been conservative in the highest degree. His residence in the west had been but short, and he was daily surprised at the freedom accorded womeu about him. He marveled at the unconscious ness with which business men accepted into their precincts the entrance of business women. and abhorred, tnrough ignorance of the thought of the times, their "intrusion," as he called it. But a few months before young Mc Dougall had come to Kansas from Connecticut to take charge of a flour ing mill lately purchased by his father, a property situated in a small town some thirty miles west of Elliston, Henrietta's home. The business was prospering, and prosjM?rity does not make an intolerant man tolerant; so upon his visits to El liston his altercations with Henrietta had become more spirited, culminating in the application by the girl for posi tion as bookkeeper in his mill, aud his pompous refusal of it. The next morning, before breakfast, a telegram informed Harry that his father had been the victim of an acci dent in the old mill at home, and de sired the immediate presence of his son. He had barely time to write in structions to his lookkeeer, placing necessary funds at his disposal, before the next train for the east. "What a pity you did not accept my offer of yesterday." said Henrietta, jokingly, as they stood beside the waitiug train. "Just think how well I could have taken care of your inter ests during your absence." "Pouf." ejaculated Harry, with ex aggerated contempt. "When 1 want a shortage in my accounts, I will em ploy womeu to manage my affairs." And he swung himself aboard in time to escape his cousin's just wrath. But no sooner had he taken up the familiar duties at home than the dis tracting news came from the west that his trusted bookkeeper (Henrietta's detestation), had left suddenly, with the contents of the safe. The young man's state of mind can le imagined. His father was not yet out of danger, and, even had he been, the business required him to stay in the east. His money a considerable sum was gone, the mill was not run ning, and orders already in could not be tilled. It meant ruiu for him. After several days of distracted writ ing and telegraphing, he received a letter frf.m Elliston, which ran: "Ma Hkskt MoU.coAi.o-l)er Sir: I have visited your mill. 1. Hiked over the premises, examined the booiis. and. ir satis factory to you. am willing to lake charge of the business during your absence, advancing -tbe necessary money. This, providing you will sell me a one-half interest la the property, at the price asked by tne former owner, and wiii accept the money I shall advance as part pur chase money. "Awaiting your decision. I am "Very truly yours, D 1. UOaSDsa!!." His first sense was one of relief, fol lowed by wonderment David Board man was senior member of the firm owning one of the largest mills in Elliston, and his check could le drawn for a larger amount than that of any other man in the city. What could he want, Harry asked himself, with an interest in a mill in a little country town, where such a financial disaster hail occurred as had happened to his own business? But the letter was evidently in good faith, and Harry telegraphed his ac ceptance immediately, knowing that a partnership with Mr. Board man would insure his future. Three months later Harry alighted from the train at his western home. In the intervening time his partner had not only made up'the loss the busi ness had sustained, but had brought profits higher than ever lie fore. Mr. Board man had remained constantly on the ground, however, but had signified his intention of returning to Elliston as soon as Harry returneL A farmer drove past Harry, as he walked to the milL He could" not stop his loaded wagon on the river bank, but he called out cheerily: "Glad ter see yer lock, Mr. Mc Don gal. Mighty fine partner o yours in thar!" With a light heart, Harry pushed open the office door, then stopped, aghast! He saw, busily writing at the desk, not the bent form of David lioardman, but a young lady. For a moment he stood staring at the trimly attired figure and sleek, dark hea d Then a low, yet decisive voice said: "Were there any letters for us to night. John?" Before Harry could frame a reply, the young woman, turning, met his gaze. She rose and advanced, a trifle of color coming to her cheek, yet her demeanor cool and unrufffed.and aked: "I lieg your pardon, sir. I thought it was the janitor. Is there anything I can do for you?" Harry pulled himself together and replied: "I should like to see Mr. Boardman." The girl looked puzzled for a mo ment, then answered: "I fear you have made a mistake. Mr. Iloardnian lives in Elliston, the next town east." "I certainlv can have made no mis take," returned Harry, decidedly. "1 have letters iu my pocket dated at this place, and settling the details of a transaction by which he becomes part owner of this property." "Mr. Boardmau certainly has no in terest here." stated his informant. "I am Miss Boardman. and have liought half this mill, which I am managing until Mr. McDougall arrives from the easL" For an instant Harry felt as though he were on a UlHggan slope several miles long, not know ing w here the end might le; but he pulled himself to gether and handed the lady one of his cards. At sight of the piece of pastelniard the young lady looked wonderstruck, aud again flushed a trifle. Then she looked up, and ventured: "And you thought " "Yes. I thought so," he answered, comprehensively. "But I am so le wildered now that I am past all think ing. Will j-ou please explain some things that I cannot understand?" Within a few moments Harry dis covered that instead of selling an in terest in his mill to Mr. David P. Board man, he had delivered it over to a Philistine in the person of Dor othy P. Boanlman, the aforesaid gentleman's niece and junior partner, that she, having extra funds on her hands, aud hearing of McDougall's trouble, had felt sorry for him, inves tigated, found that the investment would be a good one, and made him an offer. She had not intended to deceive him. but bad merely signed her name as she was in the habit of doing in her business relations, without dreaming of being confused with her uncle, not takiug into account Harry's short resi dence in the state. It was as'.unisl.ing to see how readi ly the young man reconciled himself to having for a partner this young, businesslike woman, with the bright eyes and qniet voice. Miss Boardman went back to Ellis ton at once, and Harry took up his w-ork alone. His liooUkeeper was never found, perhaps It'cause the amount of his embezzlement was not large enough to make much stir, but Henrietta said it was because of his "broader outlook." That young lady also made frequent remarks about the nuiulier of time- that Harry found it necessary to seek his partner's advice, and her triumph was complete when, a few months after the first partnership was con summated, Dorothy Boardman, upon much persuasion, consented to enter into another partnership with the house of McDougall, the papers to be made out for life. All this was live years ago. Now the little country station threatens to be quite a town, and Harry's prosperi ty has grown along with it. He gives his wife credit for his prosperity, as for his happiness, and has come to glory in having married one of the class once so obnoxious to him. David Board in in McDougall, aged three, is, in spite of his long name, quite the most intelligent child in ex istence, so his parents aver, and Hen rietta McDougall is head bookkeeper in her cousin's mill, having come to"! see tbe working out not only of her hopes but of her prophecy.

It is a complete mystery how the currents codld have leen created at this depth, ami scientific curiosity will, no doubt, impel either public or private enter prise to send a second expedition to the scene this summer to endeavor to solve the riddle.

OYSTER-SHELL HOUSES. They are Frequently Met with ta Texas Towns. "Houses built of oyster shells can be seen in a large uumbea- of Texas towns," said G. A. Holland, a well Unown newspaper man, recently, says ihe Cincinnati Gazette. "The state was at one time undoubtedly a jart of the bed tif the Gulf tif Mexico. How many years ago geologists do not know, and natural historians are puz zled at the forms of life, so different are they from any to le found elsewhere.- Mr. Holland then priK-eeded to unfold a remarkable story. Running across the state from north to south, lie said, is au immense ledge or sheet of rock formed of oyster shells. This ledge averages about twenty feet in thickness anil is used for building pur poses in some places, while in others it is ground up and placed upon the ground as a fertilizer. There is a large quarry near Henrietta, in the northern part of the state, and a num ber of handsome blocks have In't-u con struct eil from it. When first taken out of the earth it is white and soft, but when exposed to the air it becomes hard and turns to a beautiful buff color. It was formerly used for foundations only, but during the past few years a great many handsome blocks and resi dences have been built of it. Royal Collrce of Physicians. In the tenth year of the reign of Henry VIII., on September 23. 1518, "John Chambre, Thomas Linacre, Fer dinand de Victoria. Medieorum Nos trorum. Nicholas Holsack, John Fran cis, Roliert Yaxley," were granted let ters patent giving them the privilege of admitting men to practice medicine in London and seven miles around. This was the original foundation of the present Royal College of Physicians of London. The first letters patent having apparently been inadequate for the purposes intended, in the four-1 teenth year of Henry VIIL a statute was passed enacting that no person save a graduate of Oxford or Cam bridge should practice in England, un less he had a license from the presi dent of the college of physicians afore said and from three of the "electa," who were chosen from among the fel lows.
