THE DOCTOR'S STORY.
Wr. had been telling stories, as wo
sat around the firo, one evening ad
ventures by land and sea, scraps of per
gonal experience, tales of family tradi
tion, thohumlrcd floating memories that
are seized, in passing at hiich a time.
It came to tho doctor's turn to speak,
when wo were all laughing merrily at
some jest following a scrap of legal ex
perience. The doctor is a grave, reserved man,
not much inclined to open his volume
of personal recollections at any time.
But after a moment's pause be told his
When I was a student at Heidelberg, '
having nearly completed my medical
studies, 1 had an adventure or experi
ence that I have- never told before,
though there are others living who
know the circumstances as well as I
There had been a supper in the room
of one of tho wildest of our students,
Herrmann Schonn, and wo were all
merry making, with rather more noise
than was in strict accordance with col
lego regulations, when a raj) at our door
caused an instant of profound silence to
reiirn in the room.
We opened the door, Upon the thres
hold stood a figure, tall, gaunt, and in
the last stage of entire wretchedness.
Tho face that thus disturbed our
merry making was thatof youth, though
hunger and misery had made appalling
havoc there. White and parched, the
hkin was tightly drawn over the bones;
the eyes large and black, were deeply j
sunken in their sockets, antl the liair
was dry and thin.
Upon the tall, wasted figure the
clothing hung loosely, while its shabby
condition confirmed tho tale of want in
the wan aspect of tho emaciated figure.
Standing in the doorway, ragged ami
miserable, there was yet that in the
man's voice and face that told of bet
ter days, of education, and some ac
quaintance with the courtesies and re
finements of good society.
" Do you buy the dead ?" he asked.
It was a shock to hear tho question
where life had boon so exuberant for
hours. We hesitated a moment before
one of the party answered, "All medi
cal men need bodies for dissection and
"I mean that. I have one to sell."
" I will tell you if you purchase."
" Rut, 1113 man," one said, impa
tiently, " wo do not buy bodies in this
irregular way. There might bo crimo
"No,,v ho answered, shuddering,
"there is nothing to fear in that re
spect. More, I will prove to you, when
you claim your purchase, that tho dead
man himself desired this disposal of his
Then, abruptly, ho said, "Is thero
no Englishman hero ?"
" I am an Euglishmau," I answered.
"You can tell me, then, what it will
cost to go to London all tho expenses,
but tho cheapest means of doing it."
1 made a calculation and named the
" Will you givo so much for tho body
I have to sell?" the stranger asked.
It was a large sum, and there was
some discussion, but finally Herrman
said: " If every thing is right, we will
pay you what 3011 ask. Rut there is
something suspicious in tho whole busi
ness." "I do not ask for payment until j'ou
receive tho body-," was tho answer,
earnestly given. "To-morrow, if you
will take this order to the address upon
it, you will be convinced that all is reg
ular. I am no assassin, gentlemen!"
As he spoke, he took from tho breast
pocket of his shabby coat a folded pa
per. Opening this, he wrote, in a blank
left for it, the sum I had named suf
ficient to pay one person's oxpenses to
4 London, traveling second-class.
Handing the paper to me, he said:
"You will pay the money to tho person
who is in charge of the body."
With a bow that would not have dis
graced a royal reception, ho was gone.
We looked into each other's faces.
All the merriment was gone out, and a
vague uneasiness was written upon ev
"Foul playl" Herrmau said; "shall
wc send the police to tho address?"
"Wants to escape to England," said
another, "and we havo favored him!"
" Suppose wo back out now?" I sug
gested. Rut the mystery was interesting, and
before wo separated, three of us," Herr
man and myself of the number, had
agreed to go to the address left with us,
and find tho solution.
It was still early in the day when wo
met again, and wended our way to tho
humble locality indicated. I think no
stranger could have found it. Even
Herrman, a citizen, and thoroughly fa
miliar with all the streets, knew 'nothing
of the narrow courtway wo found after
an almost endless variety of tortuous
twists and turns.
Tho house, when reached, proved to
be one of the abodes of poverty' in its
most naked hidcousness.
Swarms of dirty children flocked in
tho streets, and want and misery wcro
on every side.
Our knock was unheeded, and after
repeating it, Herrman suggested that
probably one entranco did duty for
several rooms and floors occupied by
diflerent families, and pushed tho door
A narrow entry led us to a room at
the back, and again we knocked. Tho
door was opened by a tidy woman,
who was cooking, and who, in an
swer to onr inquiries for Karl Urban,
4old us. "Alas!" you will find only his
I looked again at tho order. The
signature was "bold and clear.
"His mother is in tho room," the
woman told us. "She will let no ono
remain with her. Her son took poison.
I have seen him, but his mother drives
us all away."
"They were very poor?" Hermann
"Starving! They were great people
once, but there wa3 some loss. I do
not know all. Fritz,' the elder son,
went to London; but -there wt.s a quar
rel, and tho mother stayed with Jvarl. 1
have heard that Fritz said his mother
could not come to him except sho came
over Karl's dead body but I do not
know. It may bo it is all gossip. Rut
the mother and Karl grew poorer and
poorer, and he could get no work to do,
being a gentleman and not a working
man. They sold all, little by little
jewels, clothes, furniture. Yesterday
Karl told us his mother would go to
Fritz in London, where sho wouldnnd
a home and wealth. Rut last night ho
took poison. No one knew until we
heard his mother' screams at day
break, and we went to the room. There
was a letter stating that he had taken
e poison himself. For myself 1 can-
cead, but there wero others there
who said tho letter confessed that. The
mother fainted for a Ionp time. but
when site knew herself nain drove tn
all away. There are mr.nv in the houc

Thanking the woman, wc mounted
the narrow staircase to the room she
indicated. At the threshold we pause 1.
You have the money?" licrrman
said to me in a low tone. "
"Yes; but will you elaim the corpse
"Never!" was tho quick reply.
"Ah! such devotion! Ho should hai'c
told us. Wc will civo him a Christian
burial, will we not?"
"Yes,'" said our companion, "and
the mother shall go to Fritz in London."
Again and again we knocked, meet
ing a profound silence in the chamber
Finally, very slowly and reverently,
Herrman opened the door.
Wo lifted our caps, and followed
Never have I seen such bare poverty
as I saw represented in that room. Every
article of furniture was gone, except
ing a wretched mattress in one corner,
over which was spread a coar-e white
sheet, Extendcif upon this, in tho
rigid sleep that knows no waking,
was tho man who had stood in our
doorway but a few hours before.
Save that his eyes were closed, he
was .scarcely more corpse-like in ap
pearance in the actual clutch of death
than he had been when ho mule hi
despairing bargain witli us. The .-amu
ragged garments still covered his
limb'?, and one wasted hand was crossed
over his breast.
The room wa,s dimly lighted, the
shutters of tho window being eloicly
drawn, but we could see an open door
facing the ono by which wc had en
tered, and beside a chair thero a wom
an was kuceling.
Over her shoulders her gray hair fell,
as if she had left it untouched after her
night's repose. Her dress, of coarse,
blue woolen, covered her feet as fchc
knelt, and her face was hidden in the
chisped hands resting on the chair be
Leaving my companions still stand
ing beside the .suicide, I entered the
room to oiler what poor comfort was
in my power. At le:ist I could dis
sipate some of tho awful poverty, and
send the sorrowing mother to her sur
I spoke to her gently twice. Then
my heart filled with horror. I lifted
the gray head, tenderly, reverently.
Upon tho staring blue eyes, the dropped
jaw, the drawn features, the ame seal
was set as in the room beyond upon
her son's face. His last j-aeri lice, his
act of devotion beyond the grave, .both
were in vain. The mother's heart was
broken, and sho followed to death the
son to wlifem. through poverty and suf
fering, she had clung in life.
We gave them Christian burial, ami
in the mother's colli n I put the farewell
letter of her son. It was :is follows:
"I cannot endure the Mirht of your misery
masher day. Every axemie teems elosed to
me hy that crime w hieh -eparated me from my
brother. Eery resource !" me, and starva
tion Is inevitable. I cannot et work. I dare
not le;r, for I may be recotrnlzed and arretted.
To-morrow, after I take the poison that standi
before mo. you will receh e a xullieieut sunt to

I have sol I to-niimt to the niediu il college. I

blessing for you; my lip aie sealed by my
Bins, and a bles-lng from them would proven

We toltl no more stories that night,
for the doctor" rose soon after, and his
departure broke up our party, none of
us feeling any inclination for our former
merry talk, after tho dismal tragedy the
doctor offered as his contribution to our
budget of stories.
Street Signs in Japan.
In regard to street signs in Japan it
may be said that, although the gorge
ous ornamentation which characterizes
the street signs of tho Chinese trades
men is not mot -with in Japan, each
trade is, nevertheless, represented by
its distinctive and peculiar sign. A
cluster of cypross, trimmed into spher
ical shape, and varying from ono to
two feet in diameter, furnishes tho
ancient sake or liquor-shop sign. Ii
is also customary to place the young
twigs of this tree in the bung-holes of
thoKCgs or in the mouths of bottles,
the spines behig downward. Tho
prickly spines are said to ward off in
sects and keep the sake sweet. Tho
hattcr3 suspend a long siring of hats
from their shop, ami the maccaroni
dealers affix to their shop fronts a
largo paper lantern, which enumerates
the name of tho house, the edibles it.
will supply, and their price per bowl.
Tho original pries was two pieces of S
vion, or .00S parts of a Mexican dollar.
Hosiers employ a sign which represents
ono side of a stocking, which is so
made as to allow of tho great toe being
separate from tho others, licni Ya, tho
sellers of crimson cosmetic for paint
ing women's lips, exhibit a small crim
son Hag. Sttsni Ya, the purveyors of
small rolls of rice and fish, furnishing
each about two mouths full tho Ja
panese sandwich in fact use a Hag with
their house name, and an enumeration
of tho various articles thoy prepare:
Malz, (pine), mizago, bo called from
a fishing-bird; kenuki, (boned fowl),
and inari, are a few of these
names. Wrestlers write their names on
a board. Theaters exhibit representa
tions of the most telling scenes in tho
piece being played. Herbalists and
druggists display monstrous bags, re
sembling in shape the small ones used
in infusing tho' medicines. Makers of
rosaries suspend a largo rosary from
their shops. Goldbeaters' signs, unlike
tho gilt arm we are accustomed to, are
a pair of largo square spectacles, tho
spaco of the glasses being filled up with
sheets 01 golu-leaf. A sign may be ob
served composed of two tni or fish, tho
fish being colored red, and represented
as if tied together bv tho -gills with
straw. This is usually exhibited by
dealers in dried and salt fish, eggs, etcT,
and is employed to denote that tho
shop can supply tho usual presents to
betrothed persons. Sellers of cut-flowers
plant a willow tree atono corner of
tho house. Retail tea-dealers exhibit a
small jar, and lacquer men a.chip box,
used to contain lacquered ware To
bacconists display their names and
trademarks on a reddish-brown strip of
cloth hnng up in front of their shops.
Workers m hair show a small octagon
box.-with a fring of hair hanging from
it. Kite-makers use as a sign a cuttle
fish, both kite and fish being known as
toko. Ama, or sweet-cake, dealers ex
hibit a painting of Fujiyama. Tdany
other signs, as may bo imagined, are
employed by the Japanese shopkeepers
to illustrate the nature of their occupa
tions. To explain these would bo, for
various reasons, impracticable here.

Tho Late John Hittson, Cattle Kin?.
That John Hittson would die with his
boots on was confidently predicted by
everybody who know the great Colora
do cattle King." But old cattle buyers
in the city who knew him in his early
days could hardly credit tho dispatch
that-camo yesterday, announcing that
tho heroic frontiersman had actually
come to his end by being thrown from
that luxurious vehicle of civilization, a
carriage. Thero were bigger stock
growers on the plains than Hittson.
Colonel Richard King, on his ranch on
tho Santa Gertrudes Kiver. Texas, kept
05,000 cattle. Mifllin Kennedy built a
board fenco thirty-one miles long
across the neck of a peninsula project
ing into the Gulf of Mexico and had
30,000 head cf cattio and thousands of
horses and sheep in the 210,000-acre
inclosure. Hittson in his palmiest days
never had over 40,000 head of cattle,
but he was better known to all cattle
men than any of the rest.
John Hittson was born in the woods
of Tennessee fifty years ago, and his
early years were spent in felling timber,
pulling stumps, and breaking, ground
for crops of corn and wheat. Before he
was 25 he began to grow discontented
with his outlook, and he sought for
some escape from a long life of struggle
against poverty. The Mexican war had
opened up Texas and the adjacent coun
try for settlement, and Hittson made up
his mind to go thither to seek to better
his fortunes. He sold his Tennessee
farm, bought sixty Texas c6w3andnine
brood mares, and struck out into the
wilderness beyond the Brazos River.
He employed men as fearless as himself
to help him, and established his ranch
in a country filled with hostile Indians
and predatory bands of Mexican 'out
laws. For the.noxt fifteen years his
lifo was a continual jwarfare, and his

Herman HuTTEit and Charles Whit
man, of Missouri, armed with rifles and
accompanied by a tlccrhound, xhi o'her
day went up the Rattlesnake River in
quest of game. They climbed tho moun

arated, taking opposite sides of the
ridge. In tho hope3 of bagging a deer.
Whitman came down the Rattlesnake
side, and soon after separating from his
companion he slipped and feu, sliding
somo two hundred feet down the moun
tain side. He vainly endeavored to
stop himself by digging into the snow
with his hands and feet and clutching
at brush and saplings, till, just as he
was about to be precipitated over the

feet below, he fortunately clasped a
strong sapling with one hand, and was
left dangling in the air over the preci
pice. By a strong effort he managed to
clasp the sapling with his arm in the el
bow, and grasping his wrist with his
disengaged hand, awaited his inevita
ble fall with desperation. The hound
seeing his .master fall followed him to
the edge of. the clii! and whined pite
ously at tho predicament of his human
friend. Suddenly he dashed over the
hill like a deer and disappeared. When

companion. Hutter, above him, coming
to his assistan ce. He gathered renewed
courage, and held on desperately till
Hutter came down with a rope and res

Hutter says he had gone but a short dis

turned upon him and the dog ran oft

mu-t be provoked, and some form 01

thing which i easy at hand, and a pow
erful decoction .should be at once ad
ministered. Adult rarely meddle with
phosphorus, but children sometimes
suck this very deadly substance from
matches. Very fortunately it is dis
covered by its odor in the clAld's breath,
and its action is not rapid. Five grain
doses of sulphate of copper dissolved
in water mav bo given at intervals of ten
minutes until vomiting conies tin. Then
a do?u of magnesia should be adminis
tered, bnt no oil.
Mistakes as to quantity of opium
preparation arc by no means uncom
mon accident?. The symptom am
deep sleep, with narrowing of the pupil
of the eye to a small circle, which does
not enlarge in tho dark. An eminent
phy.-ioian advises the immediate ami
persistent use of emetics, and to allow
the patient to vomit over and over again.
Particular attention .should bo paid to
tho breathing. " So long as the breath
inr does not fall below ten to the min
ute thero is no immediate danger of
death, but opium is a dangerous poison,
and requires all the tkill that can bo
obtained to combat it." Formerly tho
custom was to walk a patient up and
down, ami to slap with wet towels. If
physical stimulant is to be ii-ed, lay tho
patient 011 a bod or lounge and slap with
tho back of a hairbrush or with a slij
pcr. This is all tho nursing necessary
so long as breathing keeps above ten to
a minute. Should it full below this, or
if tho breathing fhould eeae, artificial
respitation should bo employed It
sometimes happens that u child gets,
through accident, an overdose of wine
or brandy. We havo known of a little
girl made dangerously ill from having
purloined brandted fruit. It was a case
of stupor. Thu euro was made by
means of hartshorn and water, a tea
spoonful of tho first to a teacunful of
watur. The use of tainted food, such
as of decayed meat or vegetables, some
times occurs. Tho treatment Is to ex
cite, vomiting, and to follow this with a
dose of castor oil and powdered char
coal. Mothers aro very careful, but tho
most prudent of them, in tho experi
ence of tho writer of this, have some
times made mistakes in tho medicines
they have given their children. One
infallible rule in using any powpor or
fluid, no matter what it is, is never to
take it up, much less to administer it in
the dark. What is tho use of having
labels marked " Poison" pasted on a
bottle if it be invisible in the dark? A
bottle of medioiiip may remain in one
position for weeks untouched, but an
hour before it is used somebody or
other mav have inadvertently substitut
ed something else. If medicines wcro
always locked up les accidents would
occur. There is one wonl of final ad
vice to bo given: On the least suspicion
of poisoning in a house, end at onto
for the doctor, not necessarily your
own. but the very nearest at hand. Tho
question is often asked in a case of
poisoning as to the simplest way to pro
voke vomiting. Lukewarm water in
quantity is good. " but it is better to
add a teaspoonful of ground mustard,
or a teaspoonful of ipecac, or a tablo
spoonful of the sirup of ipecac. Fur
ther, let it be remembered that there is
no occasion for fastidiousness. Any
water will do. Water in which hands,
or dishes, for that matter, have been
washed acts more quickly than anything
else, and if soap has been used "it wSH
be all the better, for that, as soap is an
antiddte for acid poisons. The quan
tity used must be large; the snlTerer
must be urged to drink a pint at a time
until ho can contain no more, and has
been made to vomit over and over

Getting It Out of IKm.
Thet had just the loveliest sleighing
in rhiladelphianll last week, and young
Kcepitup was out enjoying it all one
afternoon. When he drove into tho
stable, oh. but the man was mad. He
roared when ho looked at the horse and
danced around, and as Uncle Remus
says, "he cusr, he did."
"Look at that hoss." he wailed,
"look at that boss! Ain't a dry hair on
him an' he's nigh ready to drop. That's
a pretty lookiu" way to bring in a hoss.
N ice man, you are, to let agood hoss
Young Kcepitup was fairly aston
ished. "Man alive!" he yelled, pict
uring his amazement in his voice, "and
what did you expect when I hired him?
When a horse is costing me an even
five dollars an hour he's got to keep
moving, you understand. When I'm
paying out more than eight cents every
minute, I can't afford to let no horse
lean up against an i;e-box while he
figures out the oat crop of the United
States for 1680. I did my level best to
keep my whip arm warm, and then. I
couldn't get more than $4.25 an hoar
out of him. I didn't hire the horse to
rest him. Nbw 1 you had only
charged, fifteen cents an hour X would
"have the horse fed every thirty minutes
while I was out, and I would have
rocked him to sleep in my arms,
wrapped him up in blankets and laid
him in the sleigh and hauled him back
to the stable myself. That is the. differ
ence, you see, Mr. Silkcracker. Here's
your money, and I want the same horse
or a better one next Saturday after
noon, if the snow holds om"
And he went away, while Mr. Silk
craeker stood looking alternately at the
money and the horse, thinking it all
over. Burlinoton' Hcackiye.

A virxAor. mkuchant from up the
country had concluded his jmreh.-nc.

when ho suddenly remembered some
thing nnd saiI:
"I want your help to bring out an

Two membors of tho firm and tho
gray-headed old book-keeper went into

slapped his leg, smiled all over and
