4 3?oor Lone Orphan, But Quito Able U Take Care of Herself. About two years after my graduation In the College of Medicine; "while yet'S young man of ardent:feelings and sym pathies, I was called through special influence to a professorship in a West em colli3ge with permission i to attend to a few special cases outside. The in stitution was an excellent one, but the neighborhood limited and thinly settled. Social life in that locality was hardly fascinating to the liabitne of the metrop olis. Thus I got to visiting an "all around" store where loungers oongre gated, as well; as , all the cranks and humorists of the place. Tha storekeeper himself was a character—strong in sense,, sterling in hone.ity, pleasant and kind, in the main, but there was still a sort of subdued ferocity about "old Bill Farrar*" He broke his Jeg once Mid X was called on to officiate.

A MATRIMONIAL MIX. One often hears of pretty, bad mat rimonial :mixes, but one of the' worst an record was given last week in a contemporary, the unfortunate indi vidual who told the story relating it is follows:—"Not long ago I met a foung and charming widow, with a stepdaughter who was 19 years of ige. I married the widow, and thet my. father came along, met our step daughter, and married her atraighl away. That made my wife the mo-, ther-in-lftw of her. father-in-law, and made my step-daaghter my mother, sind my father bocame my step-son. Do you follow the tangled thread of my discourse? Very well. My step motherr-.that is to say, my wife's step-daughter and the. wife of my father, who was also my step-son— gave birth to a boy. That boy wai my brother, because he was my fa ther's son, but he was also the son of, my wife's step-daughter, and therefore her grandson. That made me the grandfather of my step-bro ther.
