he was successful he had Inhat a great Many men would consider an Ideal position his firm gave him a Liberal salary a commission on All orders paid All his Bills and urged him to live As expensively As possible he was a professional runner in for his House he made it a Point to associate Only with Young men of wealth and All he was expected to do was to get them to speculate through his firm his commissions from such actions were usually very Large he spent a Fortune every year acted As a medium through which any Rich Man could gain an introduction to any woman of the stage who happened to strike his fancy and was perpetually about town he drove the Best horses ate the most elaborate dinners and swung in the most reckless set Here everything went Well until his firm got into trouble with the millionaire father of one of the youngsters whom the runner in had managed to coax into speculation then the runner was abruptly discharged his debts repudiated by the firm and to has in a

that i wish to make extraction As horrible As possible and i advise Young dentists All to dose so As to keep that horror As much As possible before the Public keep it no because we Hope the Day will soon come when we will not extract Teeth the present Advance of dental science is such that i verily believe the time will come within our own lives when the operation of extraction will be Seldom performed i should never advise the extraction of a tooth unless it is by Accident necessary i should not now advise the extraction of a Root that i might have advised a few years ago when the Crown is gone the Root can be made As useful with an artificial Crown As the natural Crown when the natural Crown is in bad shape i often advocate the crowning at once if the artificial Crown is perfectly fitted we have certainly a perfectly restored therefore i present that Side of extraction to make it As horrible As possible in order to Forward this grand problem of science and save the natural

when he was one of its pupils some fifty years ago i am quite he said that even cow ardly boys of the school would have been More afraid to Tell a lie than of any consequences of telling the he attributed this High tone not to the discipline of the school nor to the exam ple of the teachers but to the right feel ing of the boys themselves it was a tone Given by the he remarks it was a thing understood among them that a boy who would lie was a cowardly and mean fellow and As such was to be politely Cut by his fellow pupils until he had Learned boys Are so susceptible to Tho Public opinion of their school that it requires More courage than human nature ordinarily possesses for a boy to do either wrong or right against hence the anxious solicitude of Good teachers to get the Public

have to get around in a hurry some times i have known the time when i was braking on a freight train when the train was running fifteen or Twenty Miles an hour against sleet and Snow and a Call had come for Down at such a time i have been sitting on top of the car so stiff and Frozen As to be unable to work the brakes at All we do not min the cold weather so much on the freights As when there is 3uow on the ground arid on the cars then it becomes very dangerous As when the train is running Twenty Miles an hour the Snow and Sand will be hurled up Between the cars enough to Blind a Man and with the ice covered cars and running As we do from one car to another perhaps with our lanterns blown ont it is pretty dangerous and a Man has to be sure footed and have his wits about him to Brake on a freight in the Winter time Many of the passenger brakeman live at the Way stations Down the Road and when they finish their work at one end of the Road they take an express train Back and As it passes the station at which they live although the train May be going at the rate of from fifteen to Twentyfive Miles an hour they will jump off and keep their feet although they have to run perhaps the length of the train before they Stop themselves but still they Seldom if Ever lose their it is quite a trick to jump off and takes considerable before it can be done successfully the Way to jump is with the train and on the left hand Side of the hitter letting the right foot rest on the step and swing from the step then jump so that the left foot will strike the ground first and the tight foot immediately follow it to be able7t3 some of the men Mujaj from the Onida Teof the train or but most of them go to the rear car and jumps that jumping was a Man who lives in Dorches Ter and who was struck on the head by the car Steps As he jumped and was badly Hurt the Best Man i Ever saw and the Only Man who could hold his feet and Stop himself without running at All was a Man who is now conductor on the Derby Road he could jump from a train running thirty five Miles an hour and Stop without running a Haven journal problem of heating and lighting the problem of heating and lighting becomes More and More complicated every year by the electric Light and Nat ural Gas discoveries thirteen years ago Gen j s casement of Painesville Ohio put Down the first natural Gas Well in this country he told me about it recently i ran a pipe Down 663 said he at that depth the Drill dropped two Yards in one jump the Gas immediately began to pour and it has supplied my House with heat and Light Ever since the Only trouble i find about it is that it deprives the women folks of a fire to poke it is my standing joke at Home that in the absence of a fire they poke at me there have been a number of Wella put Down in Painesville but none of them were successful except mine or de Pauw at Albany has spent in ineffectual efforts to strike Nat ural Gas by Boring it exists in veins and you
