«Orleans broker, “ 1 aved in perpetual
apprehension of sudden death. A doc
tor in Texas told me—confound bis pio*

jand if I wanted to stay on earth I must
•avoid every species of exoitement. I
vdid my best to follow his advioe, but
that miserable specter was at my elbow
day and night and embittered my whole
existence. I don’ t believe I am a oow-
jUrd, but the .thought preyed on me un
til I began to fear for my sanity.
“ At last, after all these years of in
finite precaution, I went to a first olasa
specialist to find out how much longer
I ’d last and was assured that I hadn’t
one single symptom of the malady. Talk
¿»bout removing a mountain from a
man! That assurance knocked off an en
tire range. It changed the color of the
universe in a twinkling, and I was so
happy I wanted to just throw up my
hat and yell.
“ That was a couple of years ago, and
I h«ve enjoyed myself tiptop ever since
up to one day last week, when I hap
pened to be chatting with the specialist
and remarked that I ’d like to murder
that sawbones in Texas. ’ I don’t blame
you,’ he said. ‘ That man had no right
to tell you that you had heart disease.
If I had found you right at death’s door,
I certainly would never have let you
know it.’ Now, by Jove, I don’t know

Salem hopbuyers admit that the
pooling o f hops may have some
slight influence upon the market
price, but state that Eastern buyers
have agents here and do business
¡on ly through them. They also
claim the grades that would be
placed upon hops by the association
would not be accepted by the buyers
! and a failure to agree in this respect
would be fatal to an attempt to deal
directly with the Eastern houses.
