X Dil) yoi: vor give a man the wrong medicine. Dr. Mac-phersi.-n;" Maephorson shook his bead. I do not remember doing so. But T once save .1 111:1:1 an ovenlose of a drus for a slopping draught, which nearly killed him. It was his own fault, though, as you will see when I tell you the story. It was when I was quite a young man. and soon after I started a practice of my own at Chelsea. I had taken a pretty large house there, as a doctor is bound to do if ho wants to get on. and kept a couple of servants. On the night, however, when my adven ture happened, both the girls were away. So that when a violent ring came at the front door bell about mid night, when I was just thinking of turning in, I had to go and answer it myself. When I opened the door I found that it was as I expected. A small boy, breathless with running. Informed ne that I was required at once at an address he give me in a street about half an hour's walk from my house. " 'What am I wanted ferV I asked, but the boy could no: tell nie. He had been passing the house, he said, when an old gentleman opened the door, gave him a half crown, and told him to run as bard as he could for the nearest doctor. "I put on my overcoat and started, carrying with rr.o a few things on the chance that they might be necessary. Including a strong soporific which I might have to use if I found my patient In great pain which I could not im mediately relieve. "I had concluded that my services were made neeessarj by some accident, and used as much haste as possible. Therefore, m getting to the address which the bey had given me. As I approached the house 1 was surprised to find it In complete darkness, and I could not help wondering whether I had been made the victim of a practical joke. I was prepare with an apology for my intrusion when I heard steps descending the stairs and coming along the hall in answer to my second ring. The door was opened by a genial-looking old gentleman in a tlowered dress ing gown, who carried a lamp in hhs hand, and whose first words set my mind at rest as far as my fears of a hoax were concerned. ' 'Oh! you are the doctor, I sup pose?' he said. 'Will you walk up stairs, please' ' lie was chatting all the while that he preceded me up the broad staircase In a voice that certainly did not show any anxiety. As he led the way into a room on the tir.-t floor at the back and placed the lamp on the table. I glanced around the place quickly, ex pecting to see some sign of the person I had conic to attend. "The room was e;'nfor;ab!y. almost handsomely, furnished us a sitting room ami contained a cheerful looking flres before which two armchairs were drawn up, with a small table between them, containing two glasses, a bottle of whisky and a siphon of jsoda water, besides a box of cigars. iJut there was no sign of a patient. "Take your great coat off and sit down, said the old gentleman; 'you can put your things on the table. I suppose you will i:ot object to a glass of Scotch and a cheroot? I can rec ommend the cheroots. "He had sealed himself in one of the armchairs as he spoke and wa3 tilling the glasses. "'Pardon tue. I said, in considerable Astonishment, 'but had I not better see til patient before I do anything else? "He looked up. as if surprised at my suggest ion. 4"Oh, I am. the patient,' he said, placidly. "I started in greater surprise than ever, for he looked quite a picture of health, and he smiled good-naturedly. "'If you v.iil sit down I w'U tell you what is the matter with me, he said as placidly as before. I do not like to Bee a man standing while I am sitting, and If you do not take yonr coat off you will catch cold when you go out again. You doctors never use your knowledge to take cue of yourselves. That is better' as I obeyed wonderingly. " 'I am a victim of insomnia,' he went on, after I had taken the other arm chair; 'I suffer terribly. You cannot ell what it is to stay awake all night jng while the rest of the world is asleep. Not a soul to speak to, the. one living person in a city of dead. I think that it will send me mad some day. ' Yea, it is a great affliction, I said, 6hortly, not a little chagrined that I had been summoned at that time of night to a consultation which cou.'d have been held at any time, 'but It can b cured In time with healthy living. 'But that does not belu me to-night OF MEDICINE, j j said my patient, pushing the box of cigars toward me. " 'Ycu are suffering to-night?" I asked with my most professional air. 'Yes, I am perfectly certain that I shall not sleep a wink. It would make me feel suicidal to go to bed and try. That is why I sent for a doctor, but I am sorry you have had ;o come so far.' "'Well, It is lucky that I ha brought some drugs with me, I said, opening my brief bag before me. I will give you a sleeping draught for to night, but you must give up drugs and live healthy and take plenty of exercise and diet yourself if you really want a cure. "I took out the soporfic I had prepar ed before starting as I spoke, but the i old gentleman shook his head hopeless- 'It is not the least use giving me drugs, doctor,' he said. I have satur ated my system with them and they ; have no effect upon nie' "Then may I ask why you have sent for me?' I asked, feeling very much like losing my temper. "'Well, it is like this, doctor, he said, placidly. 'I can't sit up all night by myself. I feel as though I should go mad If I do. I roust have somebody to talk to. "And you rccan to toll me ' I began hotly, and paused for want of words to express my Indignation. "My patient took advantage of the pause to proceed In his gentle, half apologetic manner: ' I assure you, doctor, that I looked upon it quite as a business matter. I do not look upon a physician as a philanthrcphlst. but as a business man. whose chief Inducement after all is to make money. May I ask what your usual fee is?' ' 'My usual fee Is seven and six pence,' I said, severely. I was a mod est beginner in those days. 'But when I am called out in the night " 'Ycu make It higher, of course, put in my patient inipertubably; 'shall we say ten shillings?" "I nodded. " 'And may I ask how long your visit usually takes?"' ''It varies from five minutes to an hour.' "The man performed a short calcula tion on his fingers. " 'Then we may call your average visit thirtv-tw and a half minutes,' he said quietly. 'Well. I am quite prepared to pay you ten shillicgs for every thirty two and a half minutes that you remain with me. Ycu came In at exactly l-:20. Allow me to pay yon up till seven min utes to 1. He gravely handed me half a sovereign as he spoke, and went on: 'If you prefer it, I have not the least objection to your giving me medical advice all the time you are here, al though that Is quite Immaterial to me, so long as you talk about something, and keep me from the loneliness that I dread. Do rake a cigar and help your self to the whisky. "His tone was so business-like and matter-of-fact that is was Impossible to quarrel with him. IVsides. his evi dent dread of being alone, which so many victims of insomnia have, ap pealed to my sympathies. I was not successful enough then to disregard the chance of gaining a rich and eccen tric patient, the very class who make the profession worth practicing, from a pecuniary point of view. I made no demur, therefore, but determined to stay at least until I had given him di rections for curing his want of sleep by systematic exercise and plain living, and I lighted one of his cheroots, which were, indeed, excellent. "At the end of half an hour I rose to go. Hut my strange patient pleaded with me so earnestly to accept another fee and stay half an hour more that 1 scarcely had'tho heart to leave him. A fresh idea occurred to me. " 'I will stay on one condition,' I said; 'that you lie down and let me try to get you to sleep.' I felt that if I could succeed in doing so I should have done something to Justify my visit and should be able to get back to my own bed without any danger of offending a possible remunerative patient. "He agreed instantly, and drew up a comfortable-looking couch to the lire in place of his chair. " 'Now, if 1 will do my level best to sleep, will you promise not to leave me till I nm off?' he Faid, and. feeling pretty confident of my powers. I rather unwisely consented. "I began by reading aloud to him in a soft, monotonous tone, whlcn I have generally found effective, and at the end of half an hour was congratulating myself on my success, when the old gentleman jumped up wide awake, and fishing In his pocket, produced another half sovereign. T must not forget your fee. ho said as he laj back again at full length on the couch. 'Please go on. It is ver7 soothing. "I was getting desperately sleepy my self, and more than ever anxious to suc ceed and get away. " 'This won't do, he said quite anx iously. 'If I go to sleep how on earth shall I know what I owe you?" " 'You can trust that to me.' I sai l, shortly, and continued the reading again, with what seemed like complete success, till at 2 o'clock my patient jumped up as lively as ever to present me with my fourth fee. "The want of success made me des perate, and I was already regretting deeply the promise which prevented me leaving the old gentleman to his fate, and getting home, when another thought suggested itself to me. "The sleeping draught which he had refused was lying on the table before me. lie admitted having taken large quantities of every known drug, but this was a very strong one, and might affect him mote than he expected, if I could get him to take it. lie had re fused so pointblank before that I did not ask his consent, but slipped it quietly into a glass while I was read ing. ' 'Perhaps another glqss of whisky will help you.' I said, filling it up; 'try drinking it straight off.' "It appeared to me to take effect ver.t quickly, but I did not Hatter myself on the point until my fee became dim, when, finding that my patient did not stir. I rose softly, put on my hat and coat. and. turning down the lamp, felt my way downstairs in the dirk, and let myself out of the house. "As I walked home I toid myself that I had secured a desirable patient, and already given him some reason to have faith in my powers. The four half-sovereigns jingled pleasantly in my pocket, and I had still time left to get a good sleep before it was necessary to begin the day's work. Tut rest was not for mo yet awhile. As I opened my own door with a latchkey n single glance at the hall was sufficient to put another complex ion on the case, and I strode rapidly through the house, to find that it hail been ransacked from top to bottom. "My old friend with the insomnia was simply the accomplice of a gang ot burglars, who had taken this means of keeping me out of the way while his friends removed the greater part of my portable properly, it. seemed to me as if they must have taken it away in a furniture van. "I hurried off at once to the neighbor ing police station, and the Insjoctor In charge looked serious. '"It seems to me like the work of a gang that we have been hearing of for sometime, but that we can't get hold of.' he said. "Well, I think I can take you to a house where you will fin I one of the gang.' I said, and uId him briclly of my patient. "The policeman smiled a superior smile. "'lie is one of the gang, without doubt, as well as the lad who brought his message, but you won't lind him at the house now. You will find that he has taken the room furnished for a day or two. and vanished the instant you left the place.' " 'I have no doubt that was the plan,' I said, 'but I happened to give tin gentleman a dose which, if he isn't as used to drugs as he pretended, will keep him asleep for a week.'" "'And did you lind him?' "Yes. exactly as I left him. I had some trouble bringing him around. As we thought, he was a notorious crimi nal, and his arrest led to that of the whole gang, and what was of more importance to me tin- recovery of my furniture. It lias often made nie smile to think of my little sleeping draught effecting what the whole police force of the metropolis had been trying to dc for months. 1 call it a triumph of med icine." Chicago Chronicle. Yankee Enterprise. Among the leiters which followed l-Jniperor William to Sweden on the oc casion of his recent trip along the pic turesque coast and fiords of that coun try was a document bearing an Ameri can postmark, it was addressed to Ida majesty by a New York manufacturing firm. It seems that the writers had read in some American newspaper of : new lamp which had been tried in the presence of the Kmperor at Berlin and had given the utmost satisfaction. In the infer they slated that they were ignorant of the name and address of the manufacturers or inventor of the lamp and that, as they knew it had been experimented with before his majesty, they concluded to ask him to be good enough to furnish them with the name and address of the lierlin house in question, and at the same time to forward an inclosed letter. The Ihnperor is reported to have been much amused by this bit of Yankee en terprise, and personally transmitted the letter to the lierlin firm. Chicago Ilec ord. How to Quiet Violent Horses. According to a recent discovery, it has been found that it Is quite enough to touch the nostrils of a horse, simply passing the lingers along the shies of Ids nose, to stop the activity of his heart and respiration, ami to stop con sciousness in a measure. It is well known now that most of those men who succeed in quieting violent horses put their linger to that part, and some times inside the nares.

The tirst protest of free-born Ann t i tans against Spanish tyranny in Cuba was heard in Chi. ago Monday night. It was as fervid. as resolute and a deiiam as if it had boon voic.l by nicn and wo men who had suffered personally the wrongs that have kept Cuba in a state of ferment for a century. There was no sign of proa, rnng.-ment in tie speeches. They differed wiJely as to the proper course of this government. Hut whether the speaker dwelt upon the necessity oi' conforming to international law. as Mr. Uryau did. or whether, like Mr. Hjncs and Mr. Mason, he spoke out .p:arcly for Cuban independence, the umh rtc:e was the same. The meeting?; cried for free dom, says a correspondent, and it was noticeable that no sentiment was re ceived with greater applause than Cov entor Altgeld" . blunt declaration in a telegram to the riiainuait that Cuba should be annexed to the t'nitcd States. The Central Mus'.; Hall meeting was Iho larger of the two. The other, in the A NEW BATTERY OPENS FIRE hall f the Voting Men's Christian Asso ciation in I.aSaile sheet, was an overflow, but enotigh peopl' ;ittuidd it to com fortably Iii! all the seats. As f iho State street meeting, it war; one of Ihe most re markable demonstrations ever seen in this city. In the tirst place-ami that is the most important point it w as Amer ican to the core. There are ict many Cubans in Chicago. Probably all ihe exiles of the suffering islands who have found their way to the cigar shops of the town would imt till the paitptoi circle of Central Music Hall. Mos ,,f them were there, leaning forward in their seats to take in every glowing sentence and cheer ing wildly the red-hot denunciations of their old masters that poured from the stage. (Juosada, the secretary f the revolutionary party, was on the floor. and so was Zayas. the propagandist ot" the cause, who is here trying to secure contri butions ef arms, ammunition ami medi cine for the insurgents. The big cheer of the evening went up for an eM-ited Cuban who arose in the gallery while Mr. Hynes was speaking and yelled: '"1 go 07er and lick Spain myself alone." tliicauo's; Ofiiciai Stump. Tlie rti'.'cr big feature of the meeting was that it was presided out by the Mayr of Chicago, ami that the Ciiy Council gave it ollicial recognition by at tending in a lMdy. If this had happened over in Kuropo it might have been casus belli. What brought to Central Msi- Hall this tremendous crowd that tilled the au ditorium freni the back of the platform lo the eyries of the topmost gstliery V In the crowd there were not titty men who had ever been within gunshot of Havana. There wert not twenty to whom it make a dollar's difference whether Cuba bursts iter shackles or goes on toiling, footsore finder her burdens. There was neither politics nor business in it. Their motive must have been as pure as that which im pelled the men who made New 1'ngland ring against human slavery. It was a great demonstration. From the moment that the gavel ei" the chairman .-truck or der it was a long roll of applause, shouted applause emphasized with rears that would lend grace to the greatest political meeting. It brought Cuba and the trials and struggles of the Cubans 1.tH miles nearer to Chicago. It lent a new meaning to the familiar lines of the declaration of independence which were in the mouth of every speaker. .

If the responsi bility of admitting Ce.Im lo statehood had lain wiih the meeting a::d some one had put the (picstion another star would have been adhd to the Hag. At the mere .sug gestion of Cuba's possible statehood the meeting went into the wildest npplue.se.
