DR. T.H. WYSE POSSESSED A FINE SENSE OF HUMOR AND ENJOYED A JOKE AS MUCH AS ANYBODY. HE ALSO ENJOYED HIS TODDY OCCASIONALLY AND WOULD NOW AND THEN GO IN AND "TAKE ONE" . A GOOD MANY YEARS AGO D.W.MCPHERSON KEPT A SALOON IN WHAT IS NOW THE KNOX & WOODBURN DRUG STORE. DR. WYSE WENT IN TO TAKE ONE AND AS HE CAME OUT OF THE FRONT DOOR WIPING HIS MUSTACHE HE MET HIS PASTOR, DR. Z.T. BENNETT , FACE TO FACE . "WHY , DR. WYSE , " SAID THE ASTONISHED CLERGYMAN , ARE YOU COMING OUT OF A SALOON ? "WHY , BROTHER BENNETT , REPLIED THE DOCTOR , YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT ME TO STAY IN THERE, WOULD YOU.?"
