C. H. Bryan, M.D., Chicago.

Dr. Smith was sitting by his fire one night about 11 o’clock. The frosty wind outside was whistling around the corners and driving the snow into drifts and sifting it under doors. The doctor was telling his faithful wife about how much time he could have saved in the past twenty years if he had been able to use an automobile during that time. He was telling her how from now on he expected to get more enjoyment from life because he could save half his time on the road.
