A celebrated Scotch physician tells a story of a madliouso doctor whose presence of mind iilom. 1 saved his HIV: "A great friend of mine was for n considerable linn. 1 the medical superlu- twnlent of n lunatic asylum near Glasgow. "One night in making hla ouatomary rounds he had occasion to visit the patients 'ti (he kitchen, who were preparing the dinner. There were seven of them, nil big, sturdy fellows, who were believed to be harmless. The keeper only looked In upon them now and again, feeling thnt his constant presence was unnecessary. "The doctor unlocked the Iron barred door of the kitchen und went In among the !unatlcs. \ ''There were live large boilers cpn- taiiilng scalding water ready for making the Uny'p* dinner for the patients. "One of the lunatics pointed at the hollers full of lint water and, laying Ills hand upon I lie doctor's shoulder, said, 'Doctor, you'll make a line pot of broth.' And the words hail no sooner been uttered than the other six madmen shouted In a voice of delight, Must the thing,' and, seizing the doctor, were In the very act of putting him into one of the large boilers of scaltflug water when the doctor had the presence of mind to say, but not a second too soon: "'Capital broth! Hut It would taste better If 1 took my clothes off.' "The madmen, with a yell of delight, said 'Yes,' and the doctor asked tiiem to wait a moment while he went and took his clothes oil'. Hut-us soon us Ingot out of the kitchen he turned the key In the door and ordered the keeper to see to the lunatics being put under restraint. "The doctor's presence of mind saved him, It Is true, from a terrible death. but lie dle;l shortly ut'ter raving mad The exi>erieuce had destroyed Ills reason." Name J. U H.UI-* Jnli.i A. Krown V. C.

A year ago wool was strong at 21c., today it is in poor demand at 8c. We presume it's a happy time for some dealers in shoddy clothing. They can now put an occasional thread of wool in their goods. Speaking of wool we are closing out some men's suits at 59.85, that have wool in them. If we had no regard for the truth and no hope of a future life v/e might say they were reduced from S30.00. They are not, but they are as good as many advertised at that price.
