came down with the 'flu' and was
so weak afterwards that I could

were in terrible shape. I had back
aches and headaches and my ap
petite failed me completely. Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription had
been of such great benefit to me
once Ijcfore when I had need of a
tonic and nervine thai I decided to
take it again and it very cpuickly
relieved me of the nervousness, back
aches and headaches and my appetite
soon returned. I was restored to
health, which I still enjoy. I would
recommend Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription to every woman who
is ailing, werik or nervous." Mrs.

Originally "Jaws' Harp"
The name, Jew's harp, is probably a
corruption of the original name of this
simple musical instrument, jaw's
harp, so called because when in use it
Is held between the jaws. A musician
named Charles Eulenstein produced
remarkable effects with Jews' harps
at the Royal institute, London, on Feb
ruary 15, 1828.
Record for Bad English
The record for bad English is still

a governor of one of our large states.
He performed the unusual feat of
making three grammatical errors in
a sentence composed of two words:

Early matches were called lucifers,
and a match that would ignite by
means of friction was invented by a
man named Walker, of Stockton-on-Tees,
England, in 1829. In March,
1842, Reuben Partridge took out a
British patent for a machine for manu
facturing the splints. All these early
matches depended upon phosphorus
for their lighting by means of friction.

Apostle Man of Learning.
St. Paul was educated in all the

There were many seats of learning in
the East in his time. One, that we
would call a university, was situated
in his native city of Tarsus, in Cilicia.

AFTER Philip Raymond M D.,
was graduated from the medi
cal school as a physician and
surgeon. It took him hut a few
weeks to locate in a small suburb be
yond Yonkers. A cottage with u neat
little Office, a cozy den, comfortable
bedrooms and dining room and kitch
en constituted his bachelor apart
ment. The house was Just off the
main business street of the village,
and his swinging sign, brave In gold
arid black, could eusily be, seen by
those who were passing along the
thoroughfare. When lie had siunt nil j
he dared of the small amount his edu
cation had left of his patrimony upon
the furnishing of this little home, and
had Installed a capable Irish house
keeper, he felt at leisure to sit on the
tiny porch with his book, behind the
screen of the rambler rose, and watch
for the messenger to ring the hell,
ready to slip into the office mid grave
ly receive the message himself if it
w ere during office hours, or, If it were
not, to listen while Bridget took the
order and answered, "Oi'll tell the
docthor whin he comes In." If the
hook sometimes slipped to the floor
and the possible patient was forgotten
in the vision of a certnln dainty figure
with laughing eyes, who should one
day he near him when the bachelor
quarters should swell to larger pro
portions well, that is another story.
Certainly, the office bell did not often
disturb the day dreams.
The monotony of this life could not
always last It had to end one way or
another. One day a group of laborers
upon the trolley line which was to link
the little suburb with what was des
tined to be the great chain of Greater
New York had reached a point within
the doctor's range of vision, when a
sudden commotion among them
aroused him at his station on the
porch. Then he saw that a man hnd
fallen, and, as one pointed to the
doctor's sign, several others lifted him
and brought him toward the house.
Doctor Raymond received them with
his most dignified manner, beard their
report that the foreman of the gang
for It was he who had fallen had
eaten no lunch and seemed to be In
pain that after they had returned to
work he had suddenly clapped . his
hand to his right side and dropped to
the ground ; that he lived by himself,
and had no relatives, so far as they
While the doctor listened he was
hurriedly using restoratives and thor
oughly examining his patient. He
was soon convinced that an acute at
tack of appendicitis had caused the
loss of consciousness, and that an op
eration should be performed at once.
His elation at having an oppor
tunity to use his knowledge and skill
was somewhat tempered by the se
verity of his patient's attack and the
fact that he bad neither trained as
sistants nor the conveniences of a
hospital. However, It was Impossible
to evade a plain duty, and as there
was no other physician nor any sort
of a nurse to be had In less than two
hours' time, be quickly Improvised an
operating table and gave such Instruc
tions to Bridget and two of the most
intelligent-looking of the men as would
enable them to help In the task.
The delicate operation was per
formed with complete suitress nnd the
patient put to bed In the doctor's own
apartment, for he dared not risk a
removal. It was one of those eases
where the appendix showed no sign
of obstruction; Indeed, there was an
unusually healthy condition, which
promised a safe and speedy recovery,
especially as the patient was a strong
man not over thirty years of age.
"He will need very little attention
tonight." said the doctor, "and tomor
row morning I will procure a nurse.
If he has friends who wish other med
ical attendance for him, they are at
perfect liberty to send any one they
"Faith, an' himself Is all the frlnds
and rllatlves he has," said one. "but
It's niesllf will take wurrd to the
The patient recovered consciousness
quite suddenly. Just as the doctor was
beginning to feel uneasy at the pro
longed sliite of coma which did not
show any signs of yielding to his ef
forts. "Wal. I've sure got a fine berth
this time." suddenly greeted the doc
tor's ears. He turned quickly to the
bed In time to see his man preparing
to rise. "No! no!" expostulated Doc
tor Raymond. "Walt a moment and I
will explain." Then, as gently as pot
slble. the doctor told the man wbnt
had occurred. "Appendicitis!' Appen
dix to the dictionary! and didn't ye
go through my pockets?" "My good
man, I'm not a highway robber," said
the doctor beginning to fear that the
patient's mind was unbalanced. "Wal,
good Lord. I wish 't ye had 'a' bin.
I'd he better off now with all my ap
pendixes and suppelmunts, fur thn'
wii'n't tmthln" In my pockets that I'd
miss ef yed only stopped at them.
Now, Jess gip look In the Inside pocket
to my cost, 'n' see what yell find."
Doctor Raymond obeyed, and found a
paper on which was written: "I have
fits. Take off my coat and put me
where It Is cool and quiet. I'll come
to In two or three hours."
"Ye see. Doc, I thought o' course
they'd look In my pockets, ef I was
took 'Ith one o' my spells, to sec
where to take me or who my folks
was. I ain't hed one now for nigh or
five year; tho't mebbe I'd got shot ot
'em. Anyhow, 'twouldn't do to tell the
men 'twould queer me With em. But
I'll be dammed ef I ever tho't of any
body cuttin' me up. I've bad 'em ewr
sence I was a kid, 'n' they've done ev
erything." It seemed best for both his patient
and himself to avoid conversation for
the rest of the night, so, making him
comfortable and telling him to call if
lie wished anything. Doctor Raymond
lay down on a couch In his den. There
was little danger that sleep would in
terfere with his duties as n nurse,
The chagrin and mortification at his
professional error was not his only
trouble, though he realized what the
result might be If the man wished to
be disagreeable. Youth lias strong
confidence In Itself, and he felt BUM
of being able, lv' starting anew else
where, to overcome any adverse criti
cism which might arise. Hut, alas I
his finances would hardly bear the
strain of entertaining the invalid, if
be proved to be a guest Instead of a
p. i.', Ing patient, though no thought of
this had entered Raymond's mind
when he took the sufferer In as an act
of common humanity; and so, if the
small revenue his meager practice
brought were cut off, and he must
move Rnd watt again, is it Strange
that the morning found liltn iu i a
haggard than his patient, Who slept
heavily until daylight ?
As the doctor sat before his un
tasted breakfast, the - Irish laborer
brought a note from the superintend
ent, saying that Thomas Wheeler was
a valuable man and the company
would bear the expense of bis illness
and keep up his pay. The doctor was
Instructed to procure whatever help
was needed to care for him properly.
Raymond assured t he man that the
patient hnd passed a comfortable
night, and that there was every rea
son to believe he would be out In two
or three weeks' time. When' the mes
sage and the good wishes of his fellow-laborers
were repealed to Wheel
er, he exclaimed: "Well, Doc, ye
look's if ye was as much cut up 'bout
this as I be, tho' it's all In yer feelln's
In your case. Now, I've been doln' a
spell o' thlnkln' over this here Sitooa
tion, 'n' 1 do' know's it'll help mat
ters any fer me to kick. My appen
dix is gone can't never have tppendi
ceetis now, for sure, that's one nun
fort. 'Twouldn't do me no good to
tell folks that 'twa'n't your high
soundin' disease after all, jes' a plain,
common tit, 'n' no use o' me loslti' m.v
sequel, V I kin see how It might give
you a mighty lot o' trouble. I'm bavin'
a vacation on full pay 'n' you're belli'
put to all the onconvenlence. So let's
shake on It, Doc, 'n' we'll cull It square.
Mebbe It's helped yer git yer bye-teeth
thro' a leetle further."
So the little household, with the ad
dition of the Invalid and his muse,
moved smoothly on for two weeks,
when the patient was pronounced able
to leave for his own lodgings. It was
with real regret that Raymond bade
hlui good by.
Five years later. Doctor Raymond
had become one of the visiting physi
cians at a large city hospital, when
one day he was hurriedly called into
the operating room to assist the chief
surgeon with a case of appendicitis.
The patient was prepared for ll pet
atlon when Doctor Raymond entered,
and they silently fell Into their places
and watched the skillful work. Every
thing proceeded as usual Until the
culminating point of the task was
reached, when it was found that there
was no appendix to be removed. As
the man was being taken to a ward,
a sudden suspicion caused Doctor Ray
mond to look lnteutly at his face, anil
he recognized bis old friend, Thomas
Wheeler. It was not bis duty to visit
that ward, and be found no oppor
tunity to speak with Wheeler until a
few days before he was discharged
from the hospital. The nurse left the
bedside as Raymond passed, and ho
took the opportunity to step quietly
before the patient.
"Wal, Doe, Is It you?" be said.
"'Twa'n't so strange ye made a mis

Again an ambulance responded to a
hurry call, and a patient was taken at
once to the operating room, The ex

Doctor Raymond was summon d.
Suddenly, the nurse who was prepar

"Oh, doctor, please look at this!"
The surgeon Stooped over the pros

Ids abdomen these words:

Stepping to the man's head he found
again his old patient, about to be for
the third time a martyr.
