X. D. writes: “In the recent San Francisco ‘chill and fever spell’ I received my share, for all I saved was my bow-legged dachshund, an obstetric forceps, and an umbrella, which I had forgotten at a patient's house a few days before the ‘quake’ came. Wasn't I lucky? I do remarkably well now. I made already fifty cents since. I leased a two story seven-room house (on credit) for 5 years, and my office outfit consists of a borrowed table and chair and an empty wooden box which I picked up on the street. In my parlor I have now two of them so my patients can sit down. I am now in the business center of the town. Am I not stylish?”
