--Dr. James H. Gordon, of Greenville, Ill., is seventy-two years old and the father of twenty-two children. Seven of these were boys, and, with one exception, all became physicians and attained more than ordinary success. The exception was a son who was accidentally killed while a student at the St. Louis Medical College. To take the place of this one, though, there is an only living son-in-law who is a medical practitioner.
