THE DOCTOR CURE A BORE.
It was in tho month of July. It was
on the holy Sahhath day. It was warm.
It was a saint's day in the calendar,
and I attended mass at the rathedral to
hoar the music. Religions are bo mixed
it is wise professionally to r to church
to hear the music; especially so in this
case, I beins the only practitioner in
Had there been a formidable rival w ho
leaned to one of the stronger sects say
the Presbyterian I would attend upon
the Methodist service, und yo to hear
There were some beautiful singers in
the choir I mean the .sinking was beau
tiful. After service I meant to tret a
word with one of the beautiful singers
had caught her eye, and had, in fact, re
ceived a nod of recognition and an en
couraging smile, when Brown confound
him grasped mvhand and began in his
provoking and ell'usive style "Why,
I'octor, so glad to meet you; the very
man 1 want to see. As you go my way
we will walk together." '
"Would be happy, Mr. Iirown, but I
have a call in another direction. S'moth
er day, Mr. IJrown," said I hurriedly,
and attempted to get away.
"I will walk your way then," replied
Brown, as ho laid his hand carelessly
on my arm, "and as we go you will tell
me how aunt Betsy gets on with the
broken leg. Lead on I follow."
"Your aunt is going to die," suid I
desperately, "and wants to consult you
about her will."
"Why, Doctor, really this is too sud
den. I will have to rely upon your
friendship in my aflliction. We will
dine together and afterwards drive in
your fly to my aunt's the dear, good
soul hoiv sorry I am."
There was every incentive for me to
shoot I'.rown on the spot, but with won
derful forbearance I restrained my hand.
A nobler means ol revenge and a safer
swept across my mind, as I lead the
way toward a certain narrow street. A
brook highly charged with sewerage was
here to be crossed. The passing wheels
made at tins point a deep, oozy moiasb,
into which 1 jostled Iirown iu passing.
"Gracious! Brown," cried I, "can you
swim? Keep your head out, man. Throw
yourself on your back and tloat. Wait,
I'll Dring a rail."
Brown, heedless of my prudent coun
sel, scrambled out with no greater dntri
ment t!-.an the soiling of his tooth-pick
gaiters and other garments up to the
I condoled with Brown, and comfort
ed him with tho assurance that he was
quite fortunate to escape so easily, as I
had heard of loss of life in this morass,
and to my personal knowledge a calf
was suffocated here only two days ago ;
and as it would be out of the question
for him to visit his aunt now, I, for pity's
sake, would undertake to keep her alive
for a lew dpys longer.
Brown was appeased, but bent on see
ing his aunt. "Doctor," said he, "you
are not the sort to desert a friend in
need. Wo are much alike in point of
size. We will repair the hiraclns of this
disaster from your wardrobe, and visit
my aunt at once."
Tho scoundrel actually smiled, as
though he thought he had perpetrated
a witticism !
"Friend Brown," said I, in my most
plausible tones, "I am going to visit a
very sick patient in this part of town.
You are not in good, presentable shape.
I suggest that you take the shortest and
least public path homeward, and that
you a ait there until I come."
"Doctor, 'your kindness is only ex
ceeded by your beauty,'" quoted he. "I
will stay with you. I will remain out
side while you attend upon your patient.
You could not suppose me capable of
disregarding my dying aunt's request.
And her w ill not made ! We must go,
and that quickly. Doctor."
"Very well," said I, "come on this
way then." And I led him first down
a street to tho south, then through an
alley westward, and w hile he talked vol
ubly of bis prospects contingent on the
death of bis relative, I cogitated.
"Brow n," said I, "yonder cottage with
the timbered plat surrounding is where
I am going. There is a fierce dog with
the boy just turned the corner. I will
leave you in the grape arbor, entirely
concealed. You can amuse yourself
there about live minutes."
"While I rest here I will scrape- off
some of the mud," said Brown, tu he
entered the arbor.
I lost no time in finding that boy, who
was leading a small dog with a Hiring.
"You are a good boy," said 1, "and that
is a line dog. Can you hiss him on, and
will ho run and bark ?" "You bet ( her
life," answered the boy. "Here, CVsar;
take 'em! take 'em!'' "Hold on, my
little man ; let me tell you something,
said 1. "I saw a tramp creep into your
grape arbor, and I expect be will rob
your bee hives there. Now, I wunt you
to make him run, und I'll tell you bow.
Just slip ulong and upset the hive at this
end, and then run and upset the hive at
the other end of the arbor, and hiss your
dog, and here's a quarter for you."
The boy was a good on,e, nnd followed
lottor. find then
there was a tableau.
Amid the confusion that ensued I
made my escape unobserved, mentally
convinced that Brown would postpone
bis visit to his aunt until some future
(Kcasion, and struck a bee-line for my
I secured the door inside ug.iinst any
possible intrusion, and abm st before I
had time to feel the relief from a great
burden, there came a thundering knock
and call for admittance.
It was an agonized voice, which was
some comfort to me, ns I recognized it
as Brown's voice.
I seized my visiting outfit and fled
through the rear door, and bv the sta
bles,but w ithin ten minutes by the watch
had recovered sullicient courage to
venture to return openly to my otlice,
where Brown was engaged in lighting
bees, ami anathematising, and philoso
phising, by turns in a most absurd fash
ion. "Hello, old boy," exclaimed I; "what
the deuce did you run away from me
for? Couldn't you wait mi a fellow a
"Uun away from h 1 and ten thous
and devils, (whack!) D n the bees,
(whack! I they're in my hair; (spat!)
they're under my clothes ; (dancing
around) they're down my back and on
my legs. ( )li, for (bid's sake. Doc, help
"Bees, did you say ? Sit down, Mr.
Brown, and tell me ral mbi, now, what is
the matter with you." And I placed an
easy chair for Brown as I spoke, and de
liberately proceeded to lay aside my hat
and cane, and to sit down.
"Blazes! (iemine! I whack ! I I got that
one. Oh, fire ! Why, Doc, d n it, don't
you see I'm full of bees? That infernal
dog bounced out at me and upset the
hives, and ispat!i here I am in this fix,
and can't you do something'.'"
"Oh! Ah. That's the way of it. I
thought you couldn't wait, and started
on foot to see your aunt," said I, sooth
ingly. "Well, let me see ; you say they
are alive yet? the bees, I mean, not
your aunt. My dear Brown, it becomes
my melancholy duty to bring you trie
sad news of your aunt's death, which
occurred at half-past one p. m. to-day
so I was informed by a neighbor of your
late aunt ns I returned. Now, Brown,
bear it like a man."
'Bear it! bear it! vou sav, like a
man?" repeated Brown, and there w:u
a certain wildnes
his manner and a
glare in his eye that meant danger.
Doc, il you don't help me kiil these
bees I'll kill vou !"'
"Certainly," said I, rising and moving
warily toward the stairway. Come with
me, Brown, and get out of them clothes
at once yes, every stitch must come oil" ;
how else can I fumigate and disinfect
I mean chloroform them ami stupefy
those bees? coat, vest, shoes, socks,
necktie, collar, cull's, shirt, pants, draw

just step inside this closet. There may
be ladies step in at any moment. Hark !
there they come now ! Jump in quick !
I'll fasten the door. There! you're all
right now, Brown. Yes, you're done
lirouii, you are. Ha, ha, ha!" imC'owv)
Did I pity Brown as I kicked his gar
ments out of doors ? and did I chloro
form those bees ? Not much. Iy sym
pathy was with the poor insects, which,
by reason of their entangling alliance
with Brown, might, after severing the
connection, fail to reach the hive. Chlor
oform? Nothing. But I just sprinkled
those duds liberally (nothing mean
about me except my income I yes, plen
tifully, with a liquid mixture of pungent
scent and penetrating power, that would
stain and burn whatever it might touch.
I did not intend to leave Brown in sol
itary confinement above half an hour,
but twi, !dies came in with a puny girl
just before bis time expired, and so bis
time was doubled. You see I had no
scruples about his contracting a cold, but
felt sonle compunction at the prospiet of
his dvath from rapid pneumonia!
As soon a the ladies had gone I cau
tiously opened the closet and remarked :
"Say, Iirown, my dinner is spoiling ; will
you remain as you are and go with me,
or dress lirst ?''
"Let me have my clothing 1 want to
go home," said Brown.
After all my kindness to him, Brown
has rather avoided me ever since, and
has never asked me again to take him to
see his aunt.

The Young Man of the Period.
Young man, I am quite aware that in
your own estimation, you know all that
worth knowing, but for all that, I know
there are certain truths which you can
either learn from me now, or get your
knowledge by sad experience in the
future. In age, stature, in appearance,
you are a boy, but you are trying by all
the arts in your power to make it appear
that you are a man. To do this you are
(lw fii:mners of certain kind of
men. vou are trying to be manly, but
why on earth don't you adopt a higher
standard of mauh 1? Look at yourself.
your dress you have selected ns your
model the dandy, the gambler, the fash
ionable butterfly: three creations which
almost make us doubt the wisdom of
Divine Providence when we seek for a
reason for their existence. You are suck
ing poison into your system through a
nasty weed rolled up in the form of a
cigar, and you think this is manly. So it
It is manly because it isn't beastly.
The better instincts of beasts protect
them from such vile habits. Vou swing
fancy cane, not because you need it lor
protection or support, but because some
other worthless fellow does it. In fact,
you have taken pains to hunt out the
worst and the weakest attributes f
human nature, and you have taken them
your standard of manliness. Shame
on you! If you have no individuality of
character and must have a model some
thing to copy after and imitate why not
select some man in the highest sense,
one who is as far above the brute as the
ones you selected are below? Why not
select as your model the man who has
won a high and honored position in life,
by bis own talents, with habits of indus
try, perseverence and application, with
out which no life can be a made a suc
Have you any plans or purposes as to
the part you are to take in this busy,
bustling world0 You have of couise in
your way. I can read your desires in
that direction. You want somebody to
give you twenty or fifty thousand dollars
to start you in some enterprise. What
do you want of this capital? You want it
for the advantages it will give you over
others. On the same principle if you
were going to engage in a pugilistic en
counter with a boy of your own size, you
would like to be supplied w ith a dirk, a
club or a revolver! Shame on you! What
a contemptible coward you are! You are
afraid to go into the battle of life single
hand -d, depending "li your own strength
and skill. You want to entrench your
sell behind the breast-works of capital j
which some braver one has built up.
Your own father, no doubt, acquired the
competence lc enjoys by a lifetime of
hard struggles with the world. He went
into the conflict with bis sleeves rolled
up, with too much courage and manli
ness to ask anybody's help; yet you
would not disdain to take the fruit of bis
toil, and continue throughout life and
and get your support through his exer
tion, just as you did when you were a
helpless babe. Shame on you! Do you
call that manliness? Do you call it
bravery? Can't you see that it is the most
contemptible coward? But if your father,
as I suspect, has to much good sense to
help you in making your life a nullity by
giving yen capital, you are wishing that
by some fortunate chance some person
would cive you f '.'0,0(10. Now the w hole
essence of this wish is that you want
money without giving an equivalent for
it. You would take s--0,000, which repre
sents somebody's bard labor, and not
give a stroke of your own work in ex
change for it. Shame on you! Do you
call this honesty? Perhaps you don t care
whether it is honest or not. Very well;
we will put the case in another lieht.
Would you be willing to stand on the
street corner and ask l!0,(KiO people to
give you a dollar apiece. No, of course
nut, lor that would be begging; but
where on earth does the diU'ert. ice come
in? If you get j'JO.OOil without giving any
equivalent for it, you are getting other
persons' labor, and if there is any differ
ence in the methods, it is only the differ
ence between begging and cralt. Sup
pose by some book r crook you succeed
in getting your J0,liOO without any par
ticular exertion on your part, just tell me
in what respect you are better than
the convict in the penitentiary who
was placed there for embezzeling that
same atuount? He wanted to get some
thing for nothing. So do you But i his
convict tried lo get the property with

commencing life with a stock oi wrong
ideas, and the worst one is that which
leads you to suppose that it is not the
highest type of manliness which is
clothed in the garb of honest toil.
There is no material pronperity that is
not the fruit of well directed labor. Taka
your place among the workers and be a
man, or cultivate your present propen
sities and be a social leech, an excres

This world was once a haze of fluid
light, as the poets and the men of
science agree iu informing us. As soon
as it began to cool down a little, the
heavier materials naturally sank toward
the center, while the lighter, now rep
resented by the ocean and the atmos
phere, lloated ill a gaseous condition on
the outside. But the great envelope of
vapor thu produced did not consist
merely of the constituents of air and
water; many other gases and vapors
mingle with them, a. they still do to a
far less extent in our existing atmos
phere. Bv-and-bv, as the cooiing and
condensing process continued, the wa
ter settled down from the condition of
steam into one of a liquid at a dull red
heat. As if condensed, it carried down
with it a great many other substances,
held in solution, wiiose component ele
ments had previously existed in the
primitive gaseous atmosphere. Thus
the early ocean which covered the
whole earth was in all probability not
only very salt, but also quite thick w ith
other mineral matters close up to the
point of saturation. It was full of
lime, and raw Hint, and .sulphates, and
many other miscellaneous bodies.
Moreover, it was not only just as sail
as al the present day. but even a Treat
ileal s.dter. For from that time to thi
cvaporatiou has constantly been going
on iu certain .shallow isulated area.-,
laying down great beds of vypsum and

solid condition, while the water has, of
coiir-e. been correspondingly puritied.

Teach the Children Drawing.
The Providence Journal has a 1oii:t
editorial article headed 'J'eacli the
Chihkeu to Draw," in the course of
which it expresses some sensible ideas.
The development of a child's mind, it
says, is an epitome of the mental evo
lution of the race. Long before the
printed page has any meaning for him,
pictures are a delight. His instincts
teach him the medium wilh which to
express his ideas, and he naturally
adopts a bold and broad style. A piece

charcoal and a white-washed wall.
