HIS IIRST PATIENT. 11V I'ltANIC II. si'AUI'I'KU. Paul Veutnor sat alono in his of-- lice, his hands crossed on his knees, his eves fixed utioii vacanov. tho liuht from tho side-jet falling upon his woin, anx ious face. 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 bcok-caso but partially filled, an old fashioned sola, and a few stulted, stitt backed chairs, were all tho furniture laible. Wo say visible, because with in a small, curtained alcove, wero a low, narrow bedstead, and a dingy toilet Htand, in keeping with tho cracked wash-bowl nnd pitcher which surmount ed it, and with the rickety towel-rack which stood 1 esulo it. The doctor was quite a young man, prepossessing in appearance, and posi tive in his manlier his grave, thought ful face indicating character and a fair deirreo of reserved strength. His cloths lad a seedv look: they wero entire, but much worn, frayed around tho liulton holes, tho faded binding rendered less noticeablo by tho application ot ink. in lact, tho doctor was very poor, and the out look for the futino was in no wise encouraging. Ho had been locat ed in that quarter of tho city for three months, and yet had not received single professional call. Ilo had spent 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 vouug doctor's attitude was a forlorn one, mid tho expression ou his face al most devout ol hope. buddenlvhis countenance brightened. Some ono had pulled tho bell. Who else, if not a liatient'? Ho opened tho door, and a lady entered. She was closely veiled, and yet he knew that shu was young, because ol tho elasticity in her movements. You aro Dr Ventnor?" hho asked, her voice sweet and distinct, though slightly tremulous. "At your service, madam, lie an swered, with a polito bow. "Pray, be seated " She took tho clour which ho placed for her, and removed her veil; and as she did so, ho noticed that her hand was small, white, shapely and hojowel oil, nor laco was exceedingly lair, 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 cheeks. 'I wish you to call upon my father," ho said. "To-night t" asked tho doctor. "Weil no," she debatingly answer ed, "to-morrow win no. i ten you be forehand, it's an odd case, and a ba 1 one. If you succeed in relieving him you have only to nauio your fee." What is his malady 7 asked tho doctor. "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 ures, tho black eyes, which grow more lustrous because anxiety had filled them with teats. Ilo drew his chair nearer to her own. "You hnvo consulted other physi cians V ho asked. 'Quito a number," shn replied, a lit tlo lluriiedly. "Sonio of tho best in tho city." "Without success t" "Oh, of course;" and shu spoko with impatience. " i hey nan no no mteii tions. They argued, and hooted " There was something charming about thoso pauses in tho choice ot words. "You think thoy should have humor ed hunt tho doctor asked. "YihI" sho aiisweiod, liorfaco blight ii'iiil' womlrously. "You liavo cniiijlit I tho 'ulen. Oli, Hlr, I hclievo that you can tiiio liitn." I In her excitod rnwrtic88. bIio unfcon Hfiiinsly laid her hand on his arm, and (ho l ouch thrilled him. "Whv did you eomolo mot"' ho ask. ed. '! am yotini inexperienced un- known." "Why V s'no inquired, with a search ing look "I do not know. Why do wo ilo queer thlnn1" nnd she smiled a little oddly. ''They cotno to us llko a a l uveliUiou.'' It was nn aiubiu'iious explanation, and yet ho undeiHtood her. "rei haiM tho otlit r iiliystciana wero too old, and know too much," she add- ed, tho odd smito again stirring her lip!". "I will do what I can," tho doctor gravely said. "What is tho character of tho hallucination u is concerning iim loon, sno piow- ly replied, tho piquancy dying out of her face. "Or, to bo precise, it concerns what is given him to drink. For days at a time nothing liquid passes his lips. Oh, it is just dreadful 1" 'There aro rationnl intervals 1" tho doctor asked. "Yes, thank God!" sho exclaimed, with sweet fervor; "otherwise ho would bo in his grave." "Ho fancies tho water to be poisoned, eh?" "Oh, wot sol" cried tho lovely visitor. ''Filled with tho finest needles. "Ah 1" ejaculated Dr. Veutnor. Ho was thoughtful for a minute then add ed: "Givo mo your address. I'll call to morrow." She handed him a card upon which was printed : G. H. UltANSOK, ATo. , Walnut Street, Philadelphia. Tin' iloelor knew tho froiitleman bv reputation; he felt suro that .thero was a heavy fee m prospect. "You will be sure to cornel'' his visi tor asked, with a delightful tremor in her voice. She arose, and dropped her veil over her face, her diamond rings catching a thousand sparkles of light. "Without fail," was the doctor's an swer, as ho accompanied her to tho t ,.T . ... f. . .1! - 1" uoor. is your iaiuer in distress uow i "Verv much so, sir." They had reached tho doorstep. It was so curly in tho evening yet, that sho was not in need ol an escort. "Ono thing more, Miss Branson," ho said. "It may bo best for me not to call as a physician." "Why not t" asked she, in quiet sur prise. Ho may bo prejudiced, replied tne doctor. "Probably you havo not caught my meaning: A grlat deal will depend upon adroitness. Could I not come up- on somo pretended business? Of a kind in which he takes au interest? She bent her head, and ho noticed how finely poised it was. "He has houses to rent on Brandy wino street," she said, after a pause. "To lent and to sell." "Very good,'' rejoined tho doctor, "that will servo uie. Now Miss Branson, you must not bo surprised if T out up somo queer antics." Ilo laughted as he said that. "Watch mo cloBely for a clew to what I would have you do or say." He felt that sho was keenly regard ing him, iu tho dimness, through her veil. "I think I understand," sho simply said. "Good evening, sir." The next morning Dr. Paul Veutnor took from a drawer a strong horse shoo magnet. Ho rubbed steadily upon tho blade of his pocket-knife with ono of thn Holes of the inamict. thorouerhlv electrifying it. He purchased a paper e ft II . .1.

Tho proprietor asked him if he wouldn't sit down, and nil ,1.'. nil .ln...n n . I ho said he couldn't very well, as his back was lamo. Ho seemed discour aged, and tho proprietor asked him what was the matter. "Well," said ho, "there is no cncotir ngement for a boy to havo nny fun nowadays. If a boy tries to play an innocent joke ho gets kicked all over tho house.

I wont by him and said : "Hello, pa, what aro you doing thero?" "Ho said he was waiting for a man. I went down -street, and pretty soon I went up on the other corner, and ho was standing there. You see, ho didn't know what corner Daisy was going to bo on, nnd ho had to cover tho whole four corners. I asked him if ho hadn't found his man yet, nnd ho said no, 'the mah was a little late. I went up strtet. nnd I saw pa cross over by tho drug store, and I could see a gin going oy Willi a- waiuijnoui uii, but she skitcd along, and pa looked kind of solemn, tho way ho does when I ask him for now clothes.

Well, when a boy's pa tells him to noye'r mind, my experienco is that boy wants 10 go rigiii uw:iy liuiu mere, and I weut down street. I thought I would cross over and go up the other side, and see how long he would stay. There was a girl or two going up ahead of me, and I see a man hurrying 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 doorway. It was about 8 o'clock then, and pa was tired, and I went up to him and asked him for half a dollar to go to tho theatre. I never know him to shell out so quick. Ilo gave mo a dpihr, and I told him 1 would go and got it changed and bring him back tho half dollar, but ho said I needn't mind the change. "It is awful mean of a boy that has been treated well to iilav it on pa that way, and I felt ashamed. As I turn ed tho corner and saw hini standing thero shivering, waiting for tho man, my conscience troubled me, nnd I told a policeman to go and ten pa mat, good sho was mad.
