Victoria Flanders, alias Ethel Kains' ohentra. The o'clock before we reached New York and tne Florida train bad left on time. We left Jersey City on the very early train the next morning, which reached Washington at 10:45 a. m.. and Savanah, Ga., the next morning at 7 am., which was the same time the train leavieg Mew tork at 9 o'clock the night before reached Savannah, and from Savannah the sleeper of the two trains were consolidated, and went on southward as one train. "On this occnsion, travel was very heavy each train went southward from Savaunah as a section. The train which left New Vork at 9 Thursday evening comprisea tne nrst section, we were tne second section every tent was full in each train, and many were unabli to secure accommodations on either. "The sleeper of the first section went through to Xampa, and it was necessa ry that the doctor go on it in order to reach his winter bomb in Falatka that evening, as section No, 2 stopped at Jacksonville. The doctor tried to change seats with .Mr. Relmond of Montreal, who1 was in the first section. This Mr. Redmond, refused to do, - though he did not go farther than Jacksonville that day. "Just this side the Blackshear river we were signalled by a man waving a red handKerchief. Our train came suddenly to a bait, and we were in formed that the bridge had given way, and tho entire train of eleven cars had come down a precipice of seventy feet. "Dr. Flower toon care of most of tho wounded, and that evening he took a car load of the wounded and 13 of the dead to Jacksonville. Had he not been there very many of the wounded would soon have been among the dead. Now, the wonderful part of ihe story is this: The lady and gentleman to whom was sold (Thursday evening in New York) the section Dr. Flower had had reserved for himself, were in the midst of the wreck, the man was killed outright and the lady fatally injured, only living a few weeks. The Cana dian who refused to exchange seats to accommodate the Doctor, bad both legs broken, his sh jukler and elbow badly mashed, besides being seriously in jured internally. Twice was Dr. Flow er saved from this terrible wreck. "In 1881 Dr. Flower made a profes sional trip to Kansas. While in south -- ern Kansas he took a day on for hunt ing. Wandering away from bis com panions while strolling aloog the bor der of the Indian Territory where game seemed most plentiful, he was surprised by four robbers who suddenly appeared from a thicket. He was ordered to throw up his hands. 'All right boys,' he saiu, 'up goes my hands, but don't point your gucs this way. The ap pearance of the muzzles gives me the neuralgia. They seemed to enjoy his half impudent reply. After the leader had rnlieved him of his watch and money he shook, hands with tho Doc- of 1 1. h " T . . tor and started to go, when Dr. Flower remarked, 'I don't mind your taking my money and watch, but I feel sorry for you because they can never do you any good. ' ' Why so?' demanded the out law. 'Because vou are now suffering with Bright's Disease of the Kidneys, and have also a heart trouble which of itself must soon kill you. "How do vou know 1 have kidney and heart trouble asked the robber. 'I did not ti,;lr uni- .inR'in this wide world could tell a sick man his trouble without, asking any questions except Dr. R.V. Flower, of Bostou.' It was now the Doctor's turn Drawing himself up to his fullest height, and fastening his eyes on the bandit, he said, 'I am Dr Flower, of Boston. The robbor said in a' nervous tone ' ' I have long wanted to see you. You can help roe, can you not' 'Yes, under certain con ditions.' 'Name them,' said the rob ber ' 'That you return to m3 what vou have taken and that you give me 1,000, and change your preHent way of living.' 'I can only give 8.00 today but 1 will agree to the other terms. All right saicllthe Doctor. 'Now hands up and shell out,' find the robber good naturedly handed over the $700 and what he had taken from the Doctor. Now'- said Dr. Flower give me your name and address. "My name is Bob Cockerel, but send everything for me to Wm. Newmier, ' Mound City, Kan., and 1 will receive it and I trust to your hondr to preserve my secret. "Today Bob Cockerel, under anoth er, and His real, name is a happy, nrosperous farmer, at the head of a family in Northern Missouri. I I have seen scores of Dr. Flower's pa tients at different times, and they all tell of his examination of their cases in the same accurate and .v0"'. wav. I am thoroughly convinced that there is a kind of fate or destiny about that man which enables bim to per form almost supernatural wonders in his profession. . -Ho is the most pleasing man per sonally yo-i ever met.
