“ See here,” said an eccentric old man to an office boy who had brought a doctor’s bill to him. “See here; tell your master that I’ll pay him for the items of medicine charged in this bill, but as for the visits, why—l’ll return them ! ”
Doctor and Patient. —“ Save met Doctor, and I’ll give you $1,000.” The doctor gave him a remedy that eased him, and he called |out, “Keep at it, Doctor, and I’ll give you a cheque for SSOO ! ” In half-an-hour more he was able to sit up and he calmly remarked, “ Doctor, I feel like giving you a SSO bill.” When the doctor was ready to go, the sick man was up and dressed ; he followed the doctor to the door, and said, “ Say, Doctor, send in your bill the first of the month. ” When six months had been gathered to Time’s bosom, the doctor sent in a bill amounting to $5. Ha was pressed to cut it down to $3 ; after so doing he sued to get it, got judgment, and the patient put in a stay of execution. —Danbury News.
Holloway’s Pills. —The extraordinary range of temperature prevailing in our climate is extremely trying to the delicate-chested, the weak and nervous. All troubled by these afflictions should resolve to resort to the strengthening and regulating medicine immediately they perceive in themselves discomfort of that feeling of restlessness which betokens disordered digestion and defective secretion or bile. One of Holloway’s Pills taken about noon and followed at bed-time by a dose sufficiently large to act apperiently will speedily recruit the faulty functions, and restore order throughout the whole system. A treatment so safe in operation and so successful in result should be known and practised when, from cold and sundry other causes, disease is attempting to gain a vexatious footing,—Advt.
