Effect of Imagination Shown by Rath
er Humorous Incident in the Ex
perience of a . Prominent
x Dr. Charles K. Mills, the nerve spe
cialist of Philadelphia, told at a din
ner an amusing story of the influence
of the imagination on the health.
"A young bank clerk," he said, "feel
ing fagged from the excessive heat of
a trying summer, consulted a physi
cian. The physician questioned him,
sounded his lungs, and then said,
" 'I will write you to-morrow.
"The next day the bank clerk re-'
ceived a letter from the medical man
telling him that his right lung was
gone and his heart seriously deranged,
and advised him to lose no time in
putting his affairs in order.
" 'Of course,' the doctor wrote,' you
may live for weeks, but you would do
well to leave nothing of importance
"Naturally, the young bank clerk
was very much depressed by this sad
letter, nothing less than a death war
rant. He did not, of course, go to
work that morning, and before noon
he was having trouble with his respi
ration, while severe pains shot rapid
ly through his heart. He did not get
up all day, and on toward midnight he
had a sinking spell that caused his
people to send post haste for the doc
tor. "The doctor, on his arrival, was as
tounded. ".'Why,' he cried, 'there were no.
symptoms of -this sort . yesterday!
What on earth have you been doing
"The patient's face screwed up with
pain, he pressed his hand to his breast
and said, feebly: . .
" 'It's the heart, I suppose, doctor'
. " "i-he heart?' said the doctor. 'There
was nothing yesterday the matter with
your heart.' -';'
'"My lungs, then,' the-, patient
" 'What ails you?' the doctor shout
ed. 'You don't - seem to have been
drinking.' ' ;
" 'Your letter, doctor you told me
I had only a few weeks to live.' .
" 'Nonsense! Are you crazy? I told
you to take a month's vacation at the
seashore, and you'd be as good as new
. "The patient drew the fateful letter
from a drawer beside his bed. "
" 'Well,' said the doctor, glancing at
it, 'this is a pretty mess. This letter
was intended for another man. My
secretary mixed ""Up the envelopes.' -
"The patient laughed. He sat up In
bed. , His recovery was rapid. That
night, in fact, he was well again.
"And what " ended Dr. Mills,
"what of the dying consumptive wlw
had got this young man's letter? The
consumptive, delighted with the pre
diction that a month at the seashore
would make a sound man of him,
packed his trunk and took the first
train for New England. That was ten
years ago, and to-day ' he is in fair
, Forty Years of Longing.
A New England man tells of an
elderly woman in a Massachusetts
town who not" long ago found herself
.sufficiently in funds to purchase a new
and complete dinner set.
"It seems a sinful waste o' money,
Sarah," observed a neighbor, to whom
the set was- being shown. "You're
gettin' , along in yearst an' you won't
need chiny long."
"I may not need it long," responded
Sarah, "but I need it now, and have
needed it for forty years. You don't
know how cramped I've been."
"Yes, cramped! Look at the big tea
parties I've been invited to! Have I
ever given anything like as big a one?
No! But now, thank goodness! I'm
able to retaliate at last!" Sunday
Not the Usual Romance.
Recently one of our most fastidious
young men bought a pair of overalls
and found in them the name of the
sewing girl who made them.
He very promptly wrote her a letter
with all the effusiveness necessary in
such a case and in due time received
a reply, which, however, was void of
the romance usual in such cases. Here
it is: "I-am a working girl, It is true,
but I make a good living and I do not
care to support a husband, as I would
do if I married some silly noodle who
gets mashed on a girl he never saw.
Permit me to say that I do not know
how my card got in that pair of over
alls, and that when I do. marry, if
ever, it will be some fellow who can
afford something better than a 47-cent
pair of breeches." Muscotah JRe-corder.
His Industrious Family.
"Some months ago," said City En
gineer Sampel L. Cooper of Yonkers,
"a robust laborer asked me for a job.
I gave him work. He did well and
asked me to give employment to, his
brother. 'He's a better man than I
am,' explained the workman, leaning
on his shovel.
"I engaged the brother. His services
were satisfactory, but one day I was
astonished when both men made a
joint request that their fattier also
should be employed. - 'Our old man,'
one of them urged, 'can do more work
than both of us together.'
"'Good,' said I, .'send him along. I
will discharge both of you and let the
old man take your places.'" And that
is just what Mr. Cooper dfd.
