EING a stranger in San Francisco, without friends
or relatives who could show me this metropolis of
the Pacific, I started out to find for myself the points
of interest. Boarding a Mission Street car, I was
politely informed to either pay my fare or get off,
and I will assure that I immediately complied with
the demand. I rode out Mission Street until I heard
the conductor call out, "Fourteenth Street,', and then I
got off. I have often tried to figure out, but never
could quite tell why I left the car there, unless the
atmosphere, which I afterwards found out was in-
fected, had affected me.
I wandered leisurely up Fourteenth Street until I
came to a building with a wide, inviting entrance,
which had above the door the following inscription,
"College of Physicians and Surgeons." I had not
stood there for more than two or three seconds until
I became aware of a cloudburst, which seemed to
cover only a few feet of space, of which I was the
center. Then such a shout of laughter as I heard!
I was about to walk away, looking like a drowned
rat, when a dark-complexioned fellow of slender build,
wearing a long coat well padded at the shoulders,
his trousers neatly pressed, and a black derby hat,
approached me. I-Iis roguish, dark eye and smooth
manner seemed to overpower me completely. As he
came closer, I understood him to be saying some-
thing about hypnotizing me. This indeed set me to
thinking. I looked in all directions for some avenue
of escape, but for some reason was unable to go.
He beckoned me in at the basement door, something
told me not to go, but I was powerless against his
will. I followed through a dark basement and num-
berless corridors, until at last we came into a room
about twelve by fifty, filled with tables, around which
were seated men, who I afterwards found out were
dental students. These fellows were all engaged in

cutting various articles from blocks of plaster. I took
a seat centrally located beside a fellow who had an
extraordinarily large head, Roosevelt teeth, and with
his hair combed into a,ridiculous pompadour. Beside
him sat a curly-headed rascal, whom they called
"Silvest," who mumbled continually to himself. All
I could make out were the words, "Pauline, lemons,
and garden of love." I figured' that he had been
disappointed in love. and let it go at that.
On his right sat a large, burly fellow, with his
head set at an angle of thirty-three and a half
degrees, who said nothing more than, "Why, oh!
Further to my left sat a little Jap, who seemed to
be deeply interested in his work, while some of the
boys joshed him about "old folks." just whom they
referred to T was unable to find out.
lleside the lad from the Flowery Kingdom sat a
long, gaunt fellow in a gray sweater vest, who con-
tinually tormented Silvest with remarks about money
and sailors. V
A light-complexioned fellow with glasses next
attracted my attention by his remarks about "Creoles
and strawberry blondes." Pompadoura informed me
that the blonde young man was extremely lucky in
games of chance.
A slow, deep drawl drew my gaze toward a darkg
complexioned fellow wearing an old war-time derby,
who complained of having lost a case on account of
dropping his scalpel on the pavement.
An Englishman, who seemed to be doing more
advanced work, ignored the rest of the boys and sat
silently chewing his pipe-stem.
Near his knobs sat a full-moon-faced fellow, who
had a pronunciation peculiar to itself, and most pro-
nounced on the words "noive" and "boid." His con-
versation was freely sprinkled with feline sneezes.
On my right sat one of the finest looking boys I
have ever seen. l-le must have been born of royal
blood, as the other boys all removed their hats when
