Pain and Fever.
"If I had my way, I would smash ev
ery woman's thermometer 1" exclaimed
an irate physician who had been roused
from his slumbers in tho dead of night
by a nervous lady. She had found that
her little instrument registered fever
heat, and although she felt only a slight
indisposition she fancied herself serious
ly ill and sent post haste for the doctor.
"In iny opinion, the laity have no
business with professional implements ;
they are too ignorant and too panicky.
Many a time a thermometer, for in
stance, will register heat from some lo
cal cause when there is little or no fe
ver. Another time when I was sent for
at night after I was comfortably asleep
by a frightened mother, I found the
child had only a canker spot in the
mouth, which, of course, produced irri
tation and heat, and consequently affect
ed the thermometer. Another one of my
patients bought a new fever thermom
eter the other day, and it was delivered
at the house just as the children were
starting for a matinee. While they were
waiting for the carriage she foolishly

little girls, to test it To her conster

and they, being pops, are kicking'

there are no pop lawyers of recog

employed Mr. Warrington, a re

they recognize. Of course, he'll do
