The ambulance came into the hos pital yard at a reckless rate of speed. The surgeon on it was shouting for stretchers before the ambulance stopped at the hospital door. Two orderlies seized the wounded man, hurriedly put him into a stretcher and lifted him within reach of two house physicians who came hustling down the steps with stethoscopes in their nands. Ihey applied the instruments to the breast of the injured man and said "all right." The orderlies car ried him into the hospital reception room aud there the physicians again applied the stethoscopes. This time they pronounced him dead. "Well," said the ambulance sur geon, "that was a narrow escapo and 1 couldn't afibrd it this week, either." Asked to explain his strange' re-, mark, the surgeon said: "There is a penalty for any ambulance surgeon bringing a dead man or a drunken man to tho hospital. It doesn't make any difference if he has died on the way here, or how badly he was hurt. He must be examined with the stetho scope before he can come into the hospital and if the doctors pronounce him dead, why the ambulance sur geon is stuck. It costs him drinks and the cigars for all the other doc tors in the hospital. f. "Take this case," he continued. "That man was sure to die. I knew it the minute I saw him. But com mon decency demanded that he should not be allowed to die in the streets. Yet I knew that I was taking a risk in getting him in the ambulance and bringing him here.- If we had been delayed for even a minute-on the road, I would have had to spend about eight dollars for the fun of the rest of the doctors. Luckily, we had clear streets and we made record time. "This is tho custom in every hos pital in the city. If it was only the fatally injured to whom the rule ap plied, it would not be so bad. But the surgeon who brings in a plain drunk gets it harder than in the other case. That's the reason so many men are allowed to stay in the station house cells with fractured skulls. It is not the easiest thing in the world to make a sidewalk diagnosis and de cide whether a man is merely uncon scious from liquor or whether he has a fractured skull. So the surgeons usually take no chauces and allow the man to stay in the cell until the symptoms are developed enough to show whether or not the skull is really fractured.

These doting parents .are so particular that they will allow only one barber to keep the hair of theii young sons in trim, and when it came time for the family to depart for Atlantic City the first of this month there was no hesitation in engaging tho tonsorial artist to go along. His board was to be paid as well as the amount of wages he usually earns each week. "While he is at command, however, papa permits the man of the razor and shears to shave him every day, while mamma has her head washed every, other day, so that the barber is not given too much opportunity to grow lazy.

C Tno Gospel a - a reat refreshment is here set forth bv Dr. Talmage, tinder a figure which wih 1h fouai particularly jrraphi? by those who have gone out as hunters to And game in th mountains; tejt, Psalm xlii., 1, "As the bait pant it h after the water brooks." lvfd, who roust some time have seen a ioer hftnt, points us hero to a hunted stK staking for the water. Tho fascinating ani mal, called in my text the hart, is the same aArmjl ihyt la waorcd and profane litera ture is called the stag, the roebuck, the hind, the gazelle, the rtindeer. In eentral Syria in Blnlo tiaves there .wer whole pas ture fields of them, as isulonion suggests when he says, ' ohargn you bv tho hyuls of the field.1' Their antlers jutted from the long grass as they lay down. No hunter Tvho has been long in "John Urown's traet" will winder that In thi Bible they were classed umong clean animals, for the dews, the showers, the lakes, washed them us clean as the sky. When Isaac, the patri arch, longed for -venison, Esau shot and brought home a roebuck. Isaiah compares the spriffhtliness ot tho restored cripple of millennial times to the long and quick jump of the stag, saying, "The lame xhall leap as the hart." Solomon oxnressed his disgust at a hunter who, having shot a deer, is too lazy to cook it, saying. "The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in huntlug." But one day David, while far from the home from which he had been driven and sitting near the mouth of a lonely cave where he had lodged and ou the banks of a pond or river, hear-? a pack oT hounds in swift pursuit. Because oT the previous silence of the forest tho clangor startles him, and he says to hhn-elf, "I wonder what those dogs are after." Then there is a crackling in the brushwood and the loud breathing of some rushing wonder of the woods, and the autlers of a deer rend the leaves of tin thicket, and by an instinct which all hunters recognize it plunges into a pond or lake or river to cool its thirst and at the same time, by its capacity for swifter and longer swimming, to get away from the foaming harriers. David says to himself: "Aha! That is myself! Saul after me, Absalom after me, tmemies without number after ine. I am ehased, their bloody muzzles at mv h-els, barking nt ray good name, barking after my body, barking after my soul. Oh, the hounds, the hounds! But look there!" says avid, "That hunted deer has splashed into the water. It puts its hot lips and nostrils into the cool wave that wasaes the iathered flanks, and it swims away from the fiery canines, and it is free at last. Oh, that I might liud in the deep, wide lake of God's mercy and consolation es cape from my pursuers! Oh, for the waters of life and rescue! As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth ms soul after thee, O God!" some of you have just come from the Adirondacks, and the breath of the balsam and spruce and pine is still on you. The Adirondack are now populous with hunters, and tho deer are being slain by the score. Once while tker.i talking with a hunter I thought I would like to see whether my text was accurate in its allu sion, and as I heard the dogs baying a lit tle way off and supposed they were on the track of a'deerl said to the hiinter in rough corduroy, "Do the. deer always make for tho water when they are pursued?'' lie aid: "Oh, yes, mister! You see, thev are hot and thirsty animal, and they know where the water is, and when they hear danger in the distance they lift their ant lers and sniin the breeze and start for llac quet or Loon or Saranac, and wo gat into our cedar shell boat or stand by the runway with ri3e loaded ready to blaze away." My friends, that is one reason why I like the Bit'le so mu?b. Its alhiidons are so true to nature. Its pnrtridges are real part ridges, its ostriches real ostriches and its reindeer real reindeer. I do not won der that this antlered glory of the text makes the hunter's eye sparkle and his cheek glow and his respiration quicken, to fay nothing of its usefulness, although it is the most useful of all game, its flesh deli cious, its skin turned into human apparel, its sinews fashioned into bow strings, its antlers putting handles on cutlery and the shavings of its horns used as a restora tive, its name taken from the hart and called hartshorn. By putting aside its usefulness this enchanting creature seems made out of gracefulness and elasticity. What an eye, with a liquid brightness as if gathered up from a hundred lakes at miu setl The horns a coronal branching into every possible curve, and, after it seem done. ascenJlnir Into other iroiarH-n rJ exquisiteness, a tree of polished bone, up lifted in pride or swung down for awful combat!

The deer wd! accom plish more with Its swift feet than with its horns. There are whole chain of lakes in th Adirondacks. and from one height vou can tee thirty, lakes, and ahere are said to be over SOU in the great wilderness. So near are they to each oth r that your mountain guide picks up and carries tho boat from lake to lake, the small distance between them for that reason called a "carry." Aud tho realm of God's word is one Ion chain of bright, refreshing lake?, each promise a lake, and a very short earrv be tween them, and. though for ages" th pursued have, be-n drinking out ot them, they are full up to the to; ot the green' banks, and the same D avid describes them, and they seem so near -together thnt in three different places he speak of them as a continuous river, saying, "Tiiere is a' river the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God." "Thou Shalt make them drink of the rivers of thv pleasures:" ' Thou greatly enrichest il w't'.i tho river" of God, which is full of water." . Hut many of you have turned vour back on that supply and confronted your troub le, and you are soured with your circum stances, and you are lighting society, and yo i are fighting a pursuing world, and troubles, instead of driving you Into tho cool lake of heavenly comfort", have made you -top aud turn round and lower your head, and it is simply antler agatnst tooth. 1 do not blame you. Probably under the same circumstancs I would have done c:orse. jjut you are all wrong. You need to do as the reindeer does in February aud March it sheds lis horns. The Rabbinical writers allude to this resignation of antler by the stag when they "say . r a man who ventures his money in risky enterprises ho has hung ft on the stag's horns, and a pro verb in the far east tells a man who has foolishly lost his fortune to go aud find where the deer has shed his horns. My brother, quit the antagonism of your. .-if. cumstanccs, quit misanthropy, quit com plaint, quit pitching into your pursuer. U as wise as next spring will be the deer of the Adirondacks. Shed your horns. . But very many of you "who are wronged of the world and if in any assembly be tween the Atlantic aud Pacific oceans It were asked that all who had beeu badly treated should raise both their hands, and full response should be made, there would be twice as many hands lifted as persons present I say many of you would declare, "We have always done tho best we could and tried to be useful, and why we became the victims of malignmentor invalidism or mishap is Inscrutable." Why, do you not know that the finer a deer and the more elegant its proportions ; and the more beautiful Its bearing the more anxious the hunters and the hounds are to capture it? Had that roebuck a ragged fur and broken hoofs and an obliterated eye and a limping gait the hunters would have .aidr "Pshaw! Don't let us waste our ammuni tion on a sick deer." And the hounds ould have given a few sniffs of th tracks and'then darted off in another direction for better game. But when they see a deer with autlers lifted in mighty ehal'etigo to earth and sky, and the sleek' hide looks as if it had been smoothed by invisible bauds, and the fat sides Inclose the richest past ure that could be nibbled from the bank of rills so clar they seem to have dropped out of heaven, and the stamp of its foot de fies the jaclt-'ihootlng lantern and the rifle, the horn and the hound, that deer they will have If they must needs break their neck in the rapids. Ho if there were no noble stuff in your make up. If you were, a bi furcated nothing. If you were a for lorn fallu re, VOU WOUld b allowed to go undisturbed, but the fact that the whole pack is in full cry after you Is proof positive that you are splendid game an 1 woith capturing.

To .some, at least, of the unnumbered and innumerable host of golfers tho question may have occurred at nnu time or another - Whence inie the word -caddie"? "Prank Hoyd. In his "Omitted Chapters in the History of Monifleth." which he contributes t "The Hook of Monitieth Golf Links Ha zar," offers an. ingenious as well as highly amusing explanation of the trm. There was, he .-ays. ;i Culdee, or "KeJedci." establishment at Moni lieth at one time, till the monks of Ar-. broalh dispossessed the Culdees r their lands and made them their serv ants. One day it. occurred to a monk, while having a game of golf, to make, the Kelndei cany his club. He found this contributed greatly to his comfort. "The plan was adopted by the rest ot the monks, and henceforth .'hey never went out. without being accompanied by their Keledei. Now youi know." continues Mr. Hoyd. "that in the.-e parts the practice is to cut short words, in which the letter T Ss uwd. A na tive, for instance, never say 'llalgray,' it is always 'BMgrie.' Thus It was natural that in the rour.-o of time the should drop out of the 'Keledei.' and It should come to sound like Vaydce. and to this day this is how the word is nrnnnntw In the strong Forfarshire vernacular it was, however, broadened out to 'cad die.' " As a matter of fact, the origin of the term "caddie" does not appear to have ever been satisfactorily explained Jarnieson, who defines raddie as one who earns a livelihood by running er rands, delivering messages, and so on. expresses the opinion that the term was originally the same with the French cadet, which, as he remarks, m sometimes used to denote a young per son in general. Dr. Murray, in hi eolossal work, holds the same view, but how the word came to be employed to denote the lad who carries a play er's golf clubs has still to be elucidated. Literature.
