dlgnatlon. Inatead of putting the stock
on a dividend paying basis the direct
ors had decided at tbo last hour that
It would not be conservative to do ao,
whereupon the atock bad "broken"
seventeen point. The lambs loat hun
dred of thousand of dollura; the In
sider gained a much. It waa a "nice
Ilayward remembered this, and
when the stock, after soveral day of
consplcuoua activity and steady ad
vances, roNO to 52, be promptly sold
"short" 0.000 shares, believing that
the barefaced mnnlpulntlon would not
rauw tho stock much oliove that figure,
and Hint before long It must decline.
Only a month provloimly It had aold
at 85 and nobody wanted any of It
Ho was all tbo more decided In his
opinion that the "top" had been
reached by prices, been u so Mr. Dorr,
in a C'blcnRO paper, had stated that the
stockholders would probably receive
an entire year's dividend at one fell
twoop by reason of the unexampled
prosperity In tbo tteel rod trade.
Such an action was unprecedented. It
bad been talked about at various times
In connection with other stocks, but It
bad never come true. Why should it
come true in this instance?
Uayward, familiar with Dorr' rec
ord, promptly, "coppered" his "tip" to
buy, banking on Dorr's consistent
mendacity. But William G. Dorr,
abrewdeat and boldest of all western
stock gamblers, fooled everybody-he
actually told the truth. That week
the director did exactly a he had
predicted. When a speculator of his
caliber He he fool only one-half-the
foolish half-of the street When he
tells the truth he deceives everybody.

Hot wa carried upward sympathet

gained confidence as they taw the sue
ceNsful outcome of the Chicago gam

ltod. Money ratt and bear hopes
fell; stock value! and bull courage
rose! Ilayward began "covering" Btecl
ltod. II "Iwtight In" 6,000 ! ret, and
after ho finished bo had IokT $2fl,7M
by the deal. He was still "short"
about 12,000 shares of other stockw,
on which his "paper" losses, at tho Inst
quoted price, were over $35,000; but
If he tried to buy back such large
amount of stock in a market so sen
sitive to any kind of bull Impetus, he
would send prices upward in a Jiffy,
Increasing bis own lotses very materi
ally. He went to his office that morning In
A tremor. He consulted the cashier
and found he bad ouly 152,000 at tho
bank, of which two-third belonged to
his customers, Ho was already, moral
ly speaking, an embezzler. He wus
ruined If be didn't cover, and he was
ruined If he did. Ills "seat" on tho
stock exchange was worth possibly
$40,000, not a cent more, and as be
personally owed his out of town corre
spondents nearly $3S,00Q he could not
avoid being hopelessly ruined. More
over, bis bankruptcy would not be an
"honest" failure, for, as be told him
self bitterly after tbo barm was done,
"I bad no business to speculate on my
own hook wlih other people's money."
He bad felt It rather than had seen It
coming, for, irauiblerllko, be bad closed
his eyes and bad buried his bead In the
sand of hope, trusting In luck to pro
tect him from punishment But now
ho was face to face wlih the question
that every gambler drcods "If I stood
to lose all, how desperate a risk would
I take In order to get It back?" The
answer Is usually so appallingly thief
like that the numerous Ilayward of
tho stock exchange nud the board of
trade forthwith slop thinking with n
suddenness Hint does credit to the rem
nnnu of their honesty. But it haunt
them, doe the ominous question and
tho commeuced but unfinished answer.
As ho left his office to go to the
board roam he put to himself the futnl
query. But he would not let himself
answer It uutll he had stopped at
Fred's, Ihe official barroom of the stock
exchange, and had taken a stiff drink
of ra w wblnky. Then the answer came.
, Ho was ruined anyhow. If he fajled
without further ndo-thnt Is, without
increasing his liabilities, he would be
cursed by twenty-five of hla customers
and by fifteen of his fellow brokers
who were "lending" stocks to him. But
If be made ono last desperate effort he
might pull out of the hole, or at worst,
wby, the number of cursing customers
would remain the same, but the fellow
brokers would rise to twenty or thirty.
He took another aliff drink. The
market bud become undoubtedly a bull
market The bears had been fighting
the advance, and tbera still remained
a stubborn short Interest in certain
ttocks, as, for example. In American
Sugar company stock. Now, it that
short interest could be stampeded it
might mean an eight or ten point ad
vance. If he bought 10,000 or 15,000
shares and sold them at an average
profit of four or five points, he would
put off the disaster, and if be made
ten points be would be a great oper
ator. He bad, to be sure, no business
to buy even 1,000 shares of Sugar; but
then he bad no business to be on the
verge of bankruptcy.
The liquor was potent. Sally, said to
himself aggrlevedly, "I might as well
be hung for a flock aa for one measly
He walked a trifle unsteadily from
Fred's across the narrow asphalted
New street to the stock exchange.
He paused at the entrance. There was
no escape. Unless ho could make a
lucky strike he would fall ignomlnl
ously, "Pike's Peak or bust!" he muttered
to himself and walked Into the big
"Good morning, Mr. Ilayward," said
the doorkeeper, nay ward nodded
absently, caught himself repeating
"Pike's Teak or bust!" and walked
straight toward the Sugar post
He bem to bid for stock. One
thousand shares at 110; be got it.
Another thousand; It was forthcoming
at 110. A third thousand; somebody
was glad to sell it at 111. So far so
bad. Then he bid 117 for 2,500 shares
and it was promptly sold. But when
he bid "117 for any part of 5,000!" the
crowd hesitated; the bankers vere not
altogether sure Ilayward was "good
for It;" his ability to pay for the stock
wa not undoubted. So Sally, taking
advantage of the hesitation, bid 117K
and 117 for 6,000 Sugar, at which
price Billy Thatcher, a two-dollar
broker, sold It to him. It made 10,500
bare Hayward bad bought and the
ttock bad risen only 1H points.
, The shorts were not frightened a
wee bit But Sally was. He rushed out
of tho crowd to hi telephone and
made t pretense of "reporting" the
transaction to his office, as he would

dred sharply curious and curiously
sharp eyet. Tbey saw him bold lb
telephone receiver to his ear with an
expression of great interest a if he
were listening to an important mes
sage. But the only message be beard
was that of bis heart beats, that
seemed to say almost articulately:
"You have pluyed, and yon have lost;
yon have played, and you have lost
Therefore you are, that much worse off
than before. You must play again
and not lose!" . '"
Ho left bis telephone 'and rushed
back to the Sugar crowd. He wa less
excited, less like a drunken man; his
face was no longer flushed, but pale.
And anon there flashed upon him, as
If In caudent letters, the words, "Pike's
peek or bust!" But Pike's peak glow
ed dully, feebly, while the alternative
was of a lurid splendor, And be blink
ed his eyes snd made a curious Impa
tient motion with bis band, as one

lit gave an order for 5,000 Sugar to
hi friend, Newton Hartley.
"I this for yourself, Bally?" asked
"No. It's for one of the biggest men
In the street, Newt It' all right Ab
solutely O. K."
And; thus reassured, Hartley bought
the stock. The price wa 118. The
seller would hold Hartley responsible
for the purchase money if Uayward
"laid down"-refused to pay.
Solly wiped his forehead twice, quite
unnecessarily. The short were not
stampeding. Any attempt to soli out
the 15,000 shares be bad bought would
result ouly in depressing the price, Ave
points at least It waa Wrse than bad
the outlook for him.
Ho gave another order to buy 5,000
shares to Billy Lansing, an old and
reliable two dollar broker, bnt Lan
sing declined It He tried another, but
the order was not accepted. Tbey mis
trusted bint, but be could not even
bluster, for they excused themselves on
the ground of having Important orders
elsewhere. So be had recourse to an
other personal friend J. G. Thompson.
"Joe, buy 6.000 Sugar."
"Are you sober?" said Thompson se
riously. "See for yourself," answered Sally
laughingly. He bad nerve. "Old man,
I've got a very big order from one of
tho biggest men In the street. Borne
Importaut developments are going on."
"Sally, are you euro you've got an or
der for some one else?" asked tbe un
convinced broker. His Incredulity was
obviously In tbe nature of an Insult,
but It was pardonable, for there was
too much at stake.
"Joe, come over to the office and I'll
show you Really, I can't tell you.
Bnt I can advise yon, as a friend, to
buy Sugar for all you are worth." And
a bo uttered tho lie he looked straight
Into Thompson's eyes.
"Hayward, are you sure? Are you
sure you're not making a mistake?"
He wanted the commission of $100, bnt
he did not feel certain of bis friend.
"Oh, hell, no, I've got a lot more
to bay. It's all right Go ahead, Joe."
' And Joe went abead. He bought the
9,000 shares. The stock rose to 110V4.
and Hayward, warned by his experience
with Hartley and Thompson, did not
aak either friend or foe to boy another
5,000 shares for him. What he did
waa to distribute buying orders for
10,000 shares In lots of 500. Brokers
now accepted his orders, for they were
not so large as to be dangerous. And
the stock rose to 122. A few shorts
were frightened. He might win ont
after all. He might make Plke'a peak.
He began to bid up the stock. He
even bought "cash" stock that Is, stock
for wblcb be paid caslr, bad to pay
cash outright receiving the certificates
forthwith, presumably to baud over to
some investor of millions. Everybody
on the "floor" was talking about Hay
ward. Tbe entire market had risen in
Bynipathy with Sugar.
But at 124 It seemed as if the entire
capital stock was for sate. He ceased
buying. He bad accumulated SS.000
shares. To pay for the stock necessi
tated about $0,000,000. But if he could
unload on an average of only 122 he
might "come out even" in his other
He gave an order to sell 10,000 shares
to a broker to whom he bad always
been a good friend. It was a fatal mis
take. The broker, Louis W. Wechsler,
had previously sold 1,000 shares to
Hayward for "cash" at 122. He sus
pected what was coming, and, declin
ing the order, be himself went to Hay
ward's office and asked for a check.
The cashier sought to put him off with
excuses, and Wechsler, now being cer
tain ot the true state of affairs, re
turned to the board and began to sell
Sugar short for his own account If a
crash came he would make a great
deal of money, nayward wa sure to
be ruined, and Wechsler told himself
ophlstlcally that he wa only profiting
by the Inevitable. In the meantime
Sally had aold the 10,000 share through
another broker, and the price had de
clined to 121&. But Wechslert 6.000
hares put It down to 120. And some
body else Bold more, and the shorts re
covered from their fright, and the fa
tal hour was approaching when Hay
ward would have to settle, Plke'a peak
or bust! He did, Indeed, need a verita
ble Pike's peak of dollars to pay for
the 28,000 Sugar he bad on hand. So
He threw up his hands. He acknowl
edged defeat to himself. The tension
waa over. Ho was no longer excited,
but cool, almost cynical. On one of
the little 'slips of paper on which bro
kers Jot down memoranda of their
transactions he scribbled a message In
lead pencil. It was bis last official lie
and would cost Hartley and Thompson
and other friends as well as his cus
tomers many thousands of dollars. It
was as follows:
"Owing to the refusal of their bank j
to extend tho usual facilities to them
Hayward & Co. are compelled to an
nounce their suspension."
"Boy!" he yelled. And ho gave the
hit of paper to one of the exchange
messenger boys in gsny. "Take this to
the chairman." . .:- h
And he walked slowly, almost swag
gerlngly, out of the New York Stock

Good manners are sometime more
than a veneer of politeness and con
formity with the strict rules of tbe
complete book of decorum. Tbey should
not be confounded with the fashions.
The latter have been described as a
perpetual setting up of a certain stand
ard of taste "which yesterday was ri
diculous because It was so new and to
morrow will be ridiculous from Its be
ing common." Tbe modes change sud
denly and capriciously, at the arbitrary
command of some mysterious censor
of style. Good manners in the essence
survive from generation to generation.
The well bred person ot today Is very
much like his well bred forbears In es
sential things. A man or woman who
performs an act of mere politeness
awkwardly may exhibit fine manners.
Good manners are good conduct accord
ing to the time and circumstances.
The begrimed son of toll, riding home
ward after a weary day, who surren
ders bis seat in the crowded car to a
woman, to an aged or decrepit person,
performs nn net of true gentility which

things done in polished circles. Phila

One of tbe important Duties or Fnysicmns ana
the Well-informed of the World
is to learn as to the relative standing and reliability of the leading manufactur-
ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the most careful as to
the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them, and it is well
known to physicians and the Well-informed generally that the California Fig Syrup
Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and the ethical character of
its product has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which
is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore, that the name of the
Company has become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy.
TRUTH AND QUALITY
appeal to the Well-informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent suc
cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would
enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it involves the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may be made to contribute
to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at the
proper time, the California Fig Syrup Co. feels that it is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-Informed because
of the excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac
ture, Which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only. , ;
'This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as, the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will alwaya be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beneficial effects always
note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co.
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Syrup of
Figs or by the full name Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna as Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co.' and the same heretofore known by the name Syrup of Figs which has given
satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout ,
the United States in original packages of one size only, the regular price of which
is fifty cents per bottle. . "'
Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C, that the remedy is not adulterated or
misbranded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.
