friend told ma I had better not

one, rather an aiomly, ton, in life. I
think you hardly ever heard before ol
a poor shoemaker with corns. That
describes tuy lint pitient. I m u-ilcr-fd

cotiplo el years, overtook tno in my
earcer. 1 ha I Itft a great quantity ol
my s,ilve and lo.oogers stowed away in

com salve, that, st the lime of alt it tp!
palling aoeideut, no oaool'my first pi

a mere surgicul acquautiiice of two
yearn bofuro. I may aay here, in fact I
that those riposted changes in my
physical appeseuuee, aided by the
coropping ol bjir, or iho ttbuudoniuc;
of it to excessive leogth, au iut la-t,
by tht coming of the beard, were all
through by early experiences of un
told advaotare to me. 1 litis in the
course ot li mo I became personally ac
quainted with all the people who:
could he duped in a given region of!
country, and with every new project
or nostrum, I returned uureuooi.ed
to thorn, ovea aod over again. Now
out of tba potashes of the agglomer

sprang, Phucnix-like, a lackey inspira
tion, at 1 have before said, without ihe
present iuditl'ertut joke, which ia alto-

plating my irrotriof able lust, 1 cou
ceived tbe idea of a patent pain killer,
wbicu 1 would go about selling tocure
tbe sores left by corn salvo.
Asa general thiuc mioty, or, 1
should aay, the want of it, gota the

I read tke subdaoce of tint remark in
a newspsper ; or was It a magaime f
It doieii matter; I believe it, and 1
verriOod it in the production of that
puiu killer; that's enough. Well, sir
tbe project worked la a c liana. I
commeuced operations, ot course, in al
most the exaot traces of my former
chiropodal exploits. It was oot long,
therefore, tdl J came upon my fit at pa
lient, the shoemaker. 1 began euu-
liously lo extol lha stomaoie virtues
of my medicine, and gradually led up
to tta external apilioatioo. It was
good, 1 asured dim, for btuiies,

my earlier truces became so recrtit
that my disguise grew pettloat. But
there wis such a demand for tht pain
