Tho loom was barely comfortable.
I'lie Hoor was covered with matting.
The wall paper was shabby, but was
ihcerlully relieved by a low clieap, yet
brightly colored, chronics, and the
heavily gilt frame which inclosed his
iliploma. A desk somewhat littered, a

in lact, tho doctor was very poor, and
the out look for the futino was in no

months, and yet had not received

his means, and had been compelled to
pawn his surgical instruments and a
few of lus books; he was in an card lor
boarding, while the landlord had given
him notice to vncato the room.
The doctor was not to blauio for his
straightened circumstances. Ilo had
practiced ugid economy; ho had nailed
up his sign and distributed his circulars;
ho was at least theoretically well up in
his profcrMou; his address was in his
favor, ho had patiently waited. There
was not much sickuess in tho neighbor
hood, and what little patronage there
was went into tho hands of the older
practitiontis. No wonder that, tho

one, mid tho expression ou his face al

she did so, ho noticed that her hand

though it wore a troubled look. Her
eyis wero black mid lustrous. Thoy
made a rapid survey of tho room, and
then rested upon tho doctor's faco in
such a steady, calctilaiiug, estimating
way, that ho felt the blood filling his

"He's a hypneondriae,'' sho slowly,
lalf-unwillingly admitted, tho color
coming and going in her face. "Ilo has
a strange hallucination, and it ho is not
lifted out of it it will end in his death."
Tho doctor was becoming fascinated
Willi tho sweet voice, tho graceful gest

lustrous because anxiety had filled them

said. "It may bo best for me not to

"Why not t" asked she, in quiet sur

doctor. "Probably you havo not caught

She bent her head, and ho noticed

I went down -street, and pretty soon I
went up on the other corner, and ho

didn't know what corner Daisy was
going to bo on, nnd ho had to cover
tho whole four corners. I asked him

said no, 'the mah was a little late. I

There was a girl or two going up

across from tho drug store to the other
corner. It was pa, and as the girls
went along and never looked around,
pa looked mad and stepped into tho

and pa was tired, and I went up to
him and asked him for half a dollar to
