THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE FBIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 30, 1894.

their appearance In the leading dally journals' of the large cities).
Br. Best, the old professor and king
of the medical school, was talking
eagerly to a pleasant-faced, slight
young- student who stood before him.
1e young man had tivken his degree
and received his diploma only the day
before, lie had graduated at the top of
his class, and, as Dr. Bent had said to one
o his fellow professors, us they sat to
gether signing the diplomas, he was
the only man in the class who really
had a genius for his profession.
IV. liest was a Kew York physician
cf wide reputation who had kept his
professorship in ilie medical school of
ono of the smull inland colleges, both
because it was his own college and be
cause the few -weeks whlph his lectures
covered gave him almost the only vaca
tion that he could manage to get
through the long hard-worked years.
"I'm not so sure that I won't take you
Into partnership, my boy," he said, after
ordinary menus of persuasion had
seemed to fail. "That is,if you will take a
few months first in the hospital
where Ml get you a grand ehance. You
otght not to bury yourself in a country
practice with your gifts. I'll push you
along as fast as I can if you'll come to
The younger man threw back his
fine head with a sudden eager gesture
n strange wistful look shone in his eyes.
He knew well enough all that the doc
tor's generous offer and fatherly affec
lionatcness meant; fame and money
and ' all delightful social advantages
were put easily within his rcucli. lie
was reverent, of the world of urt and of
letters, and of a man's best knowledge
and closo acquaintance with affairs.
Hut he could ot shut his eyes to that
other vi.sion of a familiar upland coun
try, the dark hills, tho narrow rocky
rouds, the gray and red farmhouses of
Alton. Uo remembered, too, his father,
tho old doctor of all that region, physi
cian of souls ana bodies, whom every
body had missed, he himself most of all
"You're very kind, Dr. llest," said
John Ashurst, with a bright color in
hiB cheeks. "I know how much your
kindness would mean but you see
Ibey need a doctor up at Alton."
"There are plenty of doctors," said)
the old gentleman, gruffly. "The peo-,
tile up there can get a doctor there's
Duncan or Grafton or Smith who prom
ise fairly well, and don't know whero
tn the world to settle. You ought to
lisvo a ' larger place. Come, make a
push and take what belongs to you."
"I feci as if I were needed up at Alton,
Bir," said the young doctor, with the
anxiety slowly leaving his face, and a
happy light coming into his eyes again,
though he reached Ijis hand for tha
baci of a chair closo by and took hard
hold of it. Dutyiwas so shining clear
that tha moment of temptation was
nuicuiy over, but ho suddenly remeni'
bered that he was turning his back;
upon tho most beloved companionship
that he had ever known, except his
father's. The doctors, about Alton,
whom he should sometimes meet, were
old-fashioned men, not of the best sort;
some of whom were likely to be joaloua
of him. There would bo, no more talk
for him now with Dr. Best or with
other friends who saw their profession
from anything like a wide point of
ricw, to whom ho could speak in his
own language. lie was facing a good
deal of loneliness; he could not hope to
go to Jew York very often; he was in
debt already for his education. Dr.
Best was an old man, too; they might
never meet aguiu.
Tho old doctor rose gruffly tho mo,
ment had grown too painful for them,
both. "Well, Weill" he said, impatient
ly. "You must do as you think best;
mother living and depending upon you;'
wouldn't feel at home any whero else;
sacred inheritance from your father to
take up his work; I know, I know, but
If he were here he'd feel just as I do.
Ko, no, I sha'n't forget you. I'm too
busy towrlto much, I never promise',
but you write to me if you like, and
keep up with the periodicals; poor as
they are, they're better than nothing,;
and you must follow the new notions.;
Borne day, if I can get off, I may run
Up among the hills in the summer.
God bless you, my boy!" said the old,
gentleman, handing him a book, but
not even offering to shake hands, and,
turning again, grumbling to himself,
to fumble among some papers. John,
Ashurst escaped as quickly as he could'
Mie felt a littlo light-headed and
broken, as if It would bo easy to shed
tears. When he reached his boarding
place he sat down drearily, and thought
tor a long time, deeply and anxiously.,
And at last he looked at the great
book. It was the very best French
surgical work of the day, ono that Dr.
best had. just imported; he could not
havo bought it himself with a month'
. ' A good niany years afterward, ona
Winter day, John Ashurst, grown older,
and gray and weather-beaten with; his
long drives over the windy hills, camo
Into a railroad car from one of tho
fcmall stations within twenty miles of
Alton. lie carried a heavy wrap over
his arm, a Scotch plaid which Dr. Best,
dead nojv these many years, had sent
him onoe after a summer abroad. Thev
had both been too busy to see each
other often; once or twice, they had
met, and once or twice they had done,
things for each fther, but tf-v had
never failod to be truly intimate. It
ihad proved as the elder man had fore
iscen, that' John Ashurst had taught
jhlm and other doctors more than any
ibody could teach in return. .And ho
had done marvelous things In, surgery
and medicine of which the world never
heard, but, for all that, tho best phy
sicians knew him by name and reputa
Hft tS'2ie thasajoe boyish, simple igok.
of his student days, and he had a doc
tor's lovely habit of taking care of other
'people, so that when he sat down, stiff
and tired from a long drive over frozen
ground, he noticed that his next neigh
bor, a cross, grumpy-ljoking old fel
low, whose seat he asked to share in
the crowded car, looked old and
pinched, and seriously ill besides. Ills
quick eye saw signals of danger from a
most obscure disease, and he gave a
littlo sigh as he settled himself and
tucked his warm wrap round his couv
panion's knees and drew a corner of it
over his own.
"It's too cold here, sir," ho said, in
an offhand way. "I haven't got far to
go myself. I'm ashamed that there
are no stoves in tho cars yet. I spoke
to the conductor this morning about
! The elderly traveler turned a grate
jful, surprised face. "You're very kind,
jsir," he said. "I've been fairly suffer
ing. I haven't been well, and it was a
great risk to take this journey!"
John Ashurst considered a little.
!"I see you are not well, sir," he said at
last. "I'm a stranger to you, but I'm
a doctor, and I think I could give you
.some ease now, and perhaps head off
what's likely to trouble you a good
deal if it goes on."
Tho stranger took a straightforward
look at this unexpected Good Samari
tan, lie saw a man who looked rich
in kindliness and wisdom, and poor in
ieverything besides, but there was a
look of distinction about him, there
was something that whispered to him
to havo confidence. "Go on, sir," he
said, "if yon. think you have time. I
should be very much obliged to you."
"There isn't much time, but I'll
write you a prescription. Tell me if"
and he asked a question or two with
sympathy and directness. By the time
they parted they wero already friends.
The traveler was a man of few words
and great sincerity. Ha said that he
was in business In Cuba, and had much
against his will been obliged to come
to the States at this season. Ills health
hod suddenly begun to fail him in such
a way that he was much concerned.
He, insisted, in a blunt, old-fashioned
way, upon, paying the doctor his feo,
hut the doctor laughed and said the ad
vice was his own proposal it was noth
ing, and at that moment he rose anc
'said good-by, hastily. "Keep the wrap,'
KEEP THE WRAP,
ihe said. "You
can send it backbj
John Ashurst. Alton
express to Dr.
!Be careful about chills. That is part
'of the prescription."
The traveler watched him as he lefl
the car and got into a shaky-looking
opon Duggy wan wnicn a young worn,
an was waiting to drive him away. Ai
the cars moved on he twisted about td
watch the buggy as far as he coula
down the frozen road under a gray,
bleak sky. It was a poor-looking,
hilly piece of country. The travclel
took a note book and gold pencil out oj
his pocket, and wrote down carefully
the name of Dr. John Ashurst, of Al
ton; then he tucked the Scotch plaid
well about him and smoothed it over
his knees affectionately. "That's a
scholar and a jsntleman," he thought,
with an unusual glow in his heart' "Hq
treated me liko a brother. I woncWr
how he comes to be hidden away ila
this corner. Well, the world isn't av
bad as I thought; it was good sense,
everything he said. That fellow I saw
yesterday mado a trade of it, and this
one put mo on the right road, if there
is any right road. I know my condi
tion better than he thought but ho
didn't lie once, and he explained just
what chance I had, and how to go
to work to take it.. That's the doctor
for me," and the traveler drummed on
the dnsty windowsill with a pleasant
sense of taking a new lease of life.
Dr. John Ashurst'was driving away
with one of his daughters, and explain
ing to her under what circumstances
he had left his wrap in the train,
"Poor, cross' old man," ho said. "I
should not wonder if I patched him up
for some years to come. He wan just
where that first-rate prescription will
hit him right between the eyes; he'll
be surprised to find how much better
he feels evon within a day or two."
"I hope he'll remember to send the
plaid back," said the doctor's young
daughter, smiling a little. She was
too well used tp her father's doing such
kindnesses on ,every hand, to take
special note of this. Only the thought
sometimes flitted through her mind
that people hardly ever took the
trouble to do him a kindness in return,
and when the plaid arrived neatly
folded and addressed, but without a
word of acknowledgment, she put it
in its place on the study sofa and loved
her father all the more, because this
stranger seemed to love him less.
to be concluded tomorrow.
OUR NEW COMPETITOR.
Argentine Promises Soon to Become the
From Harper's WeAkly. -
Agriculture of the United States In
one of its ch,!ef branches has another
very Important competitor In the field.
The Argentine Republic promises soon
to become the greatest wheat-producing
country In the world. The planters
there have but recently begun the ex
portation of wheat, but the Increase has
been very rapid rapid, however, in so
steady a way that we cannot speak of it
as a mere temporary or spasmodic con
tribution to the world's supply. These
shipments from Argentine were first
noticed in 18a2, when about 25,000,000
bushelswere sent to Europe; in 1893 the
shipments amounted to 45,000,000; In the
first half of 1894 the shipments had been
about 45,000,000, and the indications In
Buenos Ayres were that before the end
of the year the shipments would aggre
gate 75,000.000. Another crop will be
harvested there In December, and this
promises to amount to 125,000,000.
There are 5,000,000 people in Argen
tina, and if we allow five bushels per
capita lor home consumption It will easi
ly be seen that In the South American
republic there will be a surplus of 100,
000,000 bushels, and this, of course, will
go to the European markets and Bra
ztllan markets once supplied by us. The
Brazilians have abrogated the treaty of
reciprocity with us, and naturally our
flour and wheat, once exchanged for
sugar, will have to find other purchas.
ers. Tho shipments of agricultural ma
chinery from this country to Argentina
are at present greater than ever before,
and this shows that the wheat planters
there are preparing to enlurge the acre
age, as the machines most in demand
are reapers, mowers and thrashers.
There Rre other considerations that
make this Argentine competition for
midable. The climate Is mild there, and
the food plentiful and cheap. The la
borers do not need to be housed and
clothed so well as those who work In our
harsher climate. Then, again, the Ar
gentine wheat-growing regions are
quite near the seaboard, and there Is no
need for a long and costly land haul to
the place of exportation.
These considerations make It wise for
us to look at the future of wheat culture
In the United States with candor and
frankness. It will do no manner of
good to underrate the Importance of
facts because we hold the Latins of
South America in low esteem. It would
be wiser for us to come in competition
with them only when we can beat them
or at least hold our own. We cannot
beat them In any game that requires the
American farmers to live as the Itallon
laborers live who till the fertile soil of
the plains of South America. Nor should
our farmers abandon the field to any
competitors, however formidable. In
other words, we should by no means con,
slder the possibility of no longer cult!
vatlng wheat. But we should cultivate
It more wisely.
How the Little One Often Times Catches
It Through Carelessness.
A common source of a "cold" is the
current of cool air that passes under
neath the doors of a room and blow
.tin the exposed ankles. It Is not infre
quently the case that a child enjoy
Immunity from colds until he has
reached that Interesting age when he
sends thrills of Joy through the heart
of his fond parents by his antics on the
floor. Then, much to the wonderment
of the family, he seems to be catching
cold all the time, notwithstanding the
excellent care bestowed upon him.
Strangs, to say, It seldom occurs to
the mother, unless she has been enllght
ened by her doctor, that there Is such a
thing as a floor current In a room, and
that In Its insidious and unobtruslv
way It has been getting in Its fine work
on baby's bare legs.
The draught from badly-fitttlng win
dows may occasionally account for an
attack of bronchitis. If to gratify
baby's recently acquired interest In the

window, insufficiently clad, with th
coverings of his chest saturated through
