There have lieeli some pretty big fe-

ent learned today tlutt there are but
ree women w ho still visit the Oil F.x-
hatige duilv and make a regular busi
ness of toy ing with the oily tiger. These
ladies have licet) familiar figure about
the exclmuge for several years, and are
that are left out of several women
These ladies do not come on the floor
of the exchange, and ure not, hi fact,

irough brokers, a nml being a sufhYieiit
order for u broker lo buy or sell 1,000,
000 or 10.000 barrels of oil, as the rase

oud a deal of 1,000 barrels, at the la-
ies w ho are left in the exchange, to put
It in the phraseology of a broker, are
flying light. With a few exceptions.
the ladies who have entered the jungle
of the oily tiger have got the worst of it.
The three who still cling to the exchange,
are content to di al in 1,000 barrel lots,
and it is not ulnnvs thev can do this.
A number of liulii-s prominent in the
charitable organizations and iu society
ere have been successful speculators iu
oil, and two or three of them have been
Interested in some large deal. They
were not regular habitue of the ex-
linngp, and were frequent visitors to
the gallery, which is 0k'ii to the public.
All their deals in the market have been
nmde through brokers. .When there was
more activity in the market than there
is at preeent it wus n universal theme of
fireside gossip. Evervlxuly 8iecu1nted

porter in the hotel, mid it is no wonder

During exciting times in the market it

drawing room us in the counting room.
In the system of speculating in oil the
persons of small capital and no capital
ut all have not been overlooked, and the
servant girl is given an opportunity to
take a liver iu oil ' If she is so inclined.
During one big whirl in the market, fol
lowing the collapse of the Cherry Urove
field, it was well known that a large
numlier of servant girls lost their little
bundle along with the big fellows. This
was the most disastrous panic the oil
country ever knew, and it marked to a
great extent the end of siieculuting by
women. So many of them loet all their
money thut only a limited number of
them have hud thu courage to venture
back into the s)iectilative whirlpool.
The history of one woman s simula
tions in the Oil City exchange is curious.
Uer husliund had Imhmi in business iu the
oil country for several years and hud ac
cumulated considerable proerty, in all
worth about $16,000. lie concluded to
go west, and weut to several of the west
ern cities to look around for an Invest
ment, lie had effected a sale of his
property before leaving Oil City, and his
wife remained beliuul tw settle up some
details, collect payments not yet due
and join him in the west, where they
were to make their future iioine. the
womun collected the money, and, doubt
less, wishing to carry a pleasant surprise
to her husband, she put the money into
the oil market to "make a turn." Tlie
turn went the wrong way and she lost.
In the hope of getting it luick she made
other investments, with the usual result.
It was not long before she hud lost every
dollar of the money that she was to carry
to her husband. It was some time before
she ventured to break the news of her
folly to her husband, and this aha did
only after he hud written repeatedly for
her to come on with the money. At last
she told him the story of her loss in the
oil market, where she had gone in the
hope of doubling their money. Hie hus
band hud taken enough money with him
to buy a small farm, and with this he
w as contented to begiu the business of
money gelling over again, but hi wife
refused to share his lot until she had re
stored to him the money she had lost.
She declined to go west, but remained ln
Oil City in the hope of recovering her
This was 'n veai sutro.and the woman
