It Is Curious Mow a Han Feels When He
Knows He Needs a Doctor.
"It is curious, " said a man yasterday,
"the various sensations a man experi
ences when he goes to see a doctor or a
dentist. There i3 a long, preliminary
siege of mental agony, alternately exag
gerating and bolittling yonr ailment,
until finally in a moment of desperation
you decide to go and see what is the
matter anyway. Perhaps you have a
cold, which has settled on tbe lungs
and developed a troublesome congh that
keeps you awake nights. The congh it
self is not so bad as the terrible possi
bilities it suggests. Visions of swift de
mise from pneumonia or slow wasting
away with consumption rise up before
your eyes, and every wheeze and cough
confirms these terriblo premonitions.
If you could, you would go then in a '
hurry, but in the morning you feel bet
"The cough is still there, but the ter
rors of the imagination have fled boforo
the daylight, so you put it off anothor
day. But finally you decide to go, and
with firmness born of despair march up
to the medical man's door to learn your
fate. In case of toothache overv one
knows how a tooth will hop and jump
and smart all day until you get to the
dentist's and then calm down so quiot :
and painless that you can't tell which
one was aching. It is the samo way
with a cough or other ailment. As you '
go up to the door you secretly hope that
tho doctor is not at home. You pull the
doorbell gently and half wish you had
not come. Then the funniest part of it
all is how mad you will get whon you
find tho doctor is not at home and feel -as
if you had been cheated out of one
of your dearest hopes." Washington

An instance of the great dissolving
powers of sulphuric acid is furnished by
an accident which recently occurred in

acid, the temperaturo of which was
found to be 91 degrees C. ten hours aft

was only proved by the discovery of his
