A Convert 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 I39

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! why?" 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 l40
