THE CASE OF ALFRED JONES. Have I told you about my friend Alfred Jones? He is always coming to see me about some ailment or other. Yesterday he came in, and when I asked him what he com- plained of he said h:■ was feeling funny. So I took down my medical dictionary, letter F, to see what the treatment was for feeling fumny, but as I raised my hand to the book- shelf I happened to notice Lis linoers heavily stained with nicotine. So I sug- gested that by feeling- funny he meant that he woke up at night with a pain in ins suit-, that he puffed when he went upstairs, that he broke out in a sweat when he walked, had a poor appetite, and lacked energy. Alfred replied that I was correct. Whereupon* I told him to give up cigarettes altogether for h and let m" know how he got on. "What, no medicine? exclaimed our hero, aghast. "Not a drop, unless you would like a taste of that cane standing in the corner, for making yourself ill." I always like to provo to Alfred that I can cure people with- out those everlasting drugs. I am very fottil ol him, and I think he is fond of me. and he is sure to be round again next week with something else wrong. -0:
