A COWBOY'S TOOTHACHE. COLONEL METCALF, of Denver, Colo., U.S.A., was once a cowboy, and tells a good story. The winter of 1831, he says, was a hard one, and I never saw anything like the rain that spring. When June came we were truly a drowned-out set. I was never so worn out. I made up my mind to go to Denver. I hit upon the toothache for an excuse. My employer was at the home ranch far away, as I thought and so having pressed my excuse upon the boys, I started. I got to Denver in the morning After breakfast I lighted a cigar and stood on the steps of the hotel, and standing there came face to face with my employer. I whipped out my handkerchief and whipped it up to my cheek. Toothache- terrible,' I murmured. Toothache, eh he said looking at me keenly, come with me and have it out.' I hadn't the courage to say a word, and followed him round to the office of a dentist. I sat down in the chair in a state of utter collapse, I pointed out aback tooth and groaned 'Pull it.' The dentist had hard work to get that tooth out, for it was one of the best teeth a man ever had. I had to pay 2 dollars for the operation too, and when the tooth was out, and the dentist had soothed my wounded jaw, my employer took me to the station, and saw me off on the next train to Kit Carson, bound for the Camp. I never dared tell any of the boys how I was beaten at my game."
