With the close of the war began the
period of reconstruction which gave
the college the hardest struggle in
its history. War had depleted the
professional ranks; physicians were
needed in every section of the South,
and needed quickly. There were
students, but no money, so in 1865,
the faculty reorganized, and met
thi3 emergency by reopening the
college, and teaching two terms a

four months each, allowing students
to come up for examination and

Material Used to Patch Holes in Bed

Through Which the Water Period- j
ically Vanishes.
- j
It has been found necessary to put
another patch on the bed of the Blanco
river, says the Martindale (Tex.) Dis ;
patch. This stream has a remarkable
way of losing itself, and in order to
restore it to its surface channel, a
concrete patch has been placed upon
the holes through which it disappears.
For many years it has been empty emptying
ing emptying portions of its flow into small
holes in its bed, but it was not until
about a year ago that the entire bot bottom,
tom, bottom, so to speak, dropped out at a
point near San Marcos.
In one night the river below that
point went dry. It had had a width
of nearly 200 feet and was flowing a
strong current until the sudden dis- :
appearance of the water. The drying
up of the stream meant heavy losses j
to persons dependent upon it for water
Civil engineers were consulted in re regard
gard regard to restoring the flow, and it was
decided to patch the hole into which
the water was emptying. This was
done at a heavy expense. j
A few days ago the river wore an- i
other big hole through the bed twenty i
miles northeast of here and the same
method of patching is being followed. :

Quality, Keynote of British Crops.
Quality must always be the keynote
of British agriculture, as the area is
far too small to enable farmers to
grow the quantities of produce that
the newer countries of the world can
yield; and in no connection is quality
of greater importance than that of the
cereal crops. Wheat, oats and barley
will occupy a considerable portion of
the land, and the condition in which
they are put on the market substantial substantially

Won't Chase Female Wolves.
Sometimes it is almost impossible
to clear a neighborhood of wolves,
owing to the chivalrous instincts of
the hounds about attacking "the fe female

been known to abandon a chase after
a sheep-killing wolf because it hap happened

reason at least one female hound is
usually taken, to insure the catching
of the quarry.

"Winterhorne." said Mr. Monkton.
proprietor and manager of Monkton's
Monthly Magazine. "I want a story
written on certain lines, and you are
just the man to do the job. Get away
from the city. You can't do such work
in town. Go down to the Mascott
House, in Florida, where you won't
have anything to think of but your
creation. Here's a check for your ex-
penses going and coming, and I'll write
my old friend Charlie Burton, the land- j
lord of the hotel, to send me the bill
for your keep."
Winterhorne was given the theme
he was to work up and charged to flud

a real model for his heroine. He was
much pleased at the prospect before
him and started with a light heart.
On the way down he tried to lay out a
plan, but he found that plans usually
came to him after he began to write,
not before. The season had not yet

found little to distract him at the ho hotel

"I can't imagine."
"He's got some scheme on hand hand-something

nothing about my being here?"
"No. He proposed this hotel because

think he forgot about your being here."

"His scheme. Didn't he tell you to

"Yes. he did."
"And he told me to Gnd some .real

have me take you and you take me for
a model without either knowing that
the other is doing so. He'll make an
announcement to that effect just how
he'll manage it I don't know then

"What! Give us away?"
"He'll probably use the stories under
assumed names."
"Mr. Monkton is a very bright man."
"He'll gain thousands in circulation
by this scheme alone."
The scribblers found the genial
warmth more conducive tp lounging
than working. If they had hit upon
the editor's scheme their having done j
so foiled it. They sat together under
the exuberant tropical foliage listen listening
ing listening to the birds sing or on the sands,
lulled by the music of the splashing
waves. Now and again both of them,
conscious of taking money for work
that they were not doing, made spas spasmodic
modic spasmodic efforts to get something done.
They agreed to humor their employer
by taking each other for a model.
The season came and went before
they brought their work to a finish.
When they returned they submitted
the manuscripts to the editor, who took
them home with him to read. One
day when they were both in the office
he called them into his private room
together and said:
"What have you two been doing
down there in Florida? 1 sent you
down for a purpose, but I don't see
that anything has come of it"
"Indeed. Mr. Monkton." said Miss
Febiger, "we divined your purpose and
did the best we could."
"Divined my purpose, eh? What
was it?"
"Why. you had a scheme to get two
stories wherein the authors should
take each other for a model."
"Oh, I did. did 1?"
"I don't see what other purpose you
could have had." said Winterhorne.
"Do you suppose I would have tried
to rope you in with so thin a scheme
as that? If I did I got most awfully
sold. You've made Winterhorne out to
be a prig, and he's made you talk like
an idiot."
Both authors flushed at this.
"I didn't send you off for that pur purpose
pose purpose at all. I had a different one in
view. You. Miss Febiger, have been
trying to earn a living at scribbling,
whii-h you are not fitted for. and were

London. Which are the twelve
most famous streets in the world? The
question is extremely difficult to de
termine, for there are two or "three
factors to be taken into account, fac-
tors which the average man is apt to
overlook when trying to solve the
problem. For one thing, a street, to
come within this category, must be
wel1 known to folk of every civilized
nation, and not merely to those of the
country it belongs to. For another.

option at least that this street is
worthy of being reckoned among the
world's leading thoroughfares in any
case; and thirdly, the name of such a
street, wherever the road may be,
must be one which men and women
recognize as soon as they hear It, or
at any rate it must be thus recognized
by a very large percentage of travel
era, readers and educated people.
Taking those characteristics as our
guide, says a writer in the London
Weekly Telegraph, it is probable that
lue ionowing iisi or :iweniy
a11 Ve Dest known streets in the world,
and from these the dozen most famous
streets .would doubtless have to be
chosen. The twenty celebrities of
thlS BOrt include:
Regent street, London.
Okford street, London.
Strand, London.
Fleet street, London.
Cheapside, London.
Whitehall, London.
Princes street, Edinburgh.
O'Connell street, Oxford.
High street Oxford.
Champs Elysees, Paris.
Rue de RIvpli, Paris.
TJnter den Linden, Berlin.
Avenida, Lisbon.
Foochow road, Shanghai.
The Bund, Shanghai.
Nevski Prospect, St. Petersburg.
Collins street, Melbourne.
. Burke street Melbourne.
The Broadway, New York.
Fifth avenue, New York.
These include, as will be seen, nine
British streets, two French streets,
two American streets and one each in
Russia, Portugal and Germany. It
may be taken as certain that no trav traveler
eler traveler or person whose opinion was
based on. real knowledge would deny
the claim of these twenty to be reck reckoned

of the world, however much it might
want, or suggest, the inclusion in that

vored. favored. Hence, from this list I think we
should be able to pick out the chief
dozen after some trouble. We are not
now looking aOthis matter from the
point of view of beauty, or trade, or
size, or antiquity ; we are simply con considering
sidering considering the point with regard to fame
and renown, whatever be its cause, as
operating to give the street the widest
degree of popularity. And, taking that
view of it, I think we must at the;start
rule out Whitehall and Oxford street
from the London half dozen, while
similarly the Nevski Prospect and the
Rue de Rivoli may be left out of the
European section. This decision would
reduce our number by four, thus leav leaving
ing leaving us with sixteen, from which we
have yet to choose.
Now, though O'Connell street (late
Sackville street) Dublin, is one of the
most beautiful in our islands, and has
every characteristic of a grand thor thoroughfare,
oughfare, thoroughfare, I do not think it is nearly
so well known outside this kingdom as
are several others in our list here. So
we may, however reluctantly, put it
aside, too. Probably, as the Bund of
Shanghai would have to give way to
to the Fooschow road in popularity, we
can omit that also from further consid consideration
eration consideration here, famous as it is all over
the extreme east. Which brings down
our still existing list to fourteen. But
the elimination of the next two
streets from, these is a matter of most
difficult decision.
Burke street, Melbourne, may per perhaps
haps perhaps be left out in preference to Col Collins
lins Collins street, if we are only to include
one Australian road, as seems most
likely now. And, since a London street
is almost sure to be the unlucky "thir "thirteenth"
teenth" "thirteenth" which has to go, I certainly
think we must give the preference to
the Strand over Cheapside. There can
be no two opinions as to which street
is best known and most recognized by
name and fame among the millions of
our colonial cousins and foreign
friends who have never visited any
part of these islands. The immense
number of books, papers and maga magazines
zines magazines emananating from Fleet street
have won it popularity abroad in a
wonderful way. In spots which never
heard of Cheapside, grand, hoary and
historic as that dear old street is with
us in this land.
So I think cur dozen most famous
streets of the world would be the fol following,
lowing, following, probably in the order here
Fleet street, London.

my third.

made a trip to America and return.
High winds and rough seas furnished
him plenty of material, and there was
no lack of seasick victims who were
willing to submit to any treatment.
The doctor injected atropin, one milli milligram

Tom Finds Employment.
It "was in an exceedingly dejected
frame of mind that Tom Phinney,
alone in Van Vechten's huge six-cylinder
car, made his way to Maiden Lane
in search of Mr. Brownlow. The low
state of his feelings was in a large
measure owing to a condition that had
grown really imminent and personal
only during the last few minutes; one
that meant renunciation of all his past
mode of living and realization of a
necessary readjustment to an uncer uncertain

viewed the entrance with doubt and
disfavor. But there was no mistaking
it; from the curb, Brownlow's name
could be seen on the directory board
just inside the entrance.
There was not even an elevator, so
Tom was obliged to climb two flights
of stairs, dark and dirty, to a suite of
dingy offices, in the outer of which two
old, white-haired clerks bent over pon ponderous
derous ponderous ledgers without so much as
deigning him a glance, and a trim
young lady, affording a eharp note of
contrast to her surroundings, pounded
upon a typewriter. It was she who
recognized his presence with a bright,
smiling regard, who took his card
and disappeared into another room,
and who returned presently to say
that Mr. Brownlow would see him at
once in his private office.

Brownlow seated himself at his
desk, upon which he thoughtfully
drummed with his fingers, every now
and then directing a sharp glance at
his caller. Tom was beginning to real realize

for the Kohinur, for some occult cause,
was not to be so simply arranged as
such matters generally are; the pre preliminaries

unnecessary; he was becoming more
and more puzzled, for he believed that
Brownlow was needlessly investing
the proceedings with an air of mys mystery,
tery, mystery, and this made him restive.
By and by Brownlow drew a long
breath and once more gloomily shook
his head.
"I'm fearful that it's not to be,"
sighed he, heavily. "When you hear

The little man bounded from his
chair and began pacing the floor with
short, nervous strides. Every now
and then he would halt with a jerk and
address a few remarks to Tom, rub his
hands together briskly and dart off
upon his promenade.
"I declare, Mr. Phinney," he spoke
vehemently, "in a way this is a rare
stroke of luck for me; but before we

Tom impatiently tried to pin him
down. "If the thing depends upon so

I can get the men."
