- MONEY SENSE.
The origin and, natures of the
faculty which, for want of a better
name, may be called - "money
sense," is to the majority of man
kind an inscrutable mystery. It
neither implies nor discredits the
possession of other intellectual at
tributes. Along with it some men
possess varied and brilliant intel
lectuality; others, except as to this
faculty, are dull, stupid and obtuse.
In some cases it bears the marks
of genius, while in others it is
hardly distinguishable from brute
instinct. . : .
Money -sense is the faculty
which enables or compels its pos
sessor to get money and. hold on
to it. . It is an exploded notion
that industry, economy and self
denial are the groundworks of
money ' sense. There are plenty
of men, who, from the day of their
berth to the day of their death,
never overwork themselves, or
practice self-denial, or, take any
pains to forecast the iuture, or
practice economy inany shape,
who nevertheless get ahead and
keep ahead, while there are others
who drudge and save and calcu
late, and are eternally - looking
forward to and savinu up ,for a
rainy day, and it is as much as a
bargain if their assets will pay for
a decent burial when their time
comes for joining the majority.
Be it understood, not all who ac
quire fortunes are to be credited
with money "sense. Striking a
bonanza, for instance, is but the
lucky outcome of a gambling ex
periment. But to get more money
for the hole Irom which the . bo
nanza has been taken thanj was
made in working the bonanza; is

-The iagr3 Numbering Company-
Desires to inform the public that it has established an extensive lumber yard

kinds of . - -. - . - -

is the finest in Oregon, being sawed in the Tery heart of the Cascade
mountains. r - - . , -

considered money-sinsical. .
One main projects Vast mercan
tile enterprise, ' discovers new
channels ot trade, and - does the
work of a thousand in keeping the
world in motion, and gains but
little if anything for himself, while
another starts a family grocery
ten miles from anywhere and in a
few years js rolling in wealth.
One will start with a million, loan
it at a big interest all . the time,
and die a financial "wreck, while
another will within a few years
put up a half a dozen brick blocks
from the sale of beer at five cents
a glass. ."
Some men will go . into a stag
nant town, and in once -walking
through it . will see - and seize a
score of opportunities for making
a fortune, ; where thousands ap
parently Just us bright have hung
around for years, willing and anx
ious to do anything that might
.offer, and could no more 'see a
chance than so .many moles or
bats Jay Gould will take a road
worth a million, mortgage it tor
two million, run it for ten years
without a .dividend, and make
twenty million by the transact
ion.1 - ; .
' And so it goes; money sense is
like lightning, striking a few .and
missing a -.multitude. . But the
praeeal question is, can . it be
cultivated? If so, why would- it
not be wise to . create - classes, for
instruction- in this desirable branch
ofknowledge in our public schools?
And seriously, it" would be a long
step in the right direction if boys
could be taught to have money
and save it. Any boy can be
economical who has nothing, .but
not one in ten thousand' cau have
it without being crazy to spend it.
Perhaps and: right there is the
turning point between having and
lacking money sense in after life.
The tkought is worth . thinking
