Even .lay Gould will crack his
joke at the expense of his friend
1-fusseM cage. Une story he is
very fond of telling. He says
Sage was once pestered by two
nuns for subscription 'to some
Catholic charity. To get rid of
them lie handed over one dollar
very reluctantly and with every
evidence of great anguish of mind.
But in less than a quarter of an
hour he was smiling again, for to
make himself good he forced six
unfortunate put-and-call brokers to
give him one dollar extra on their
contracts. Instead of being one
dollar out, lie was five dollars
ahead, and his soul was at peace.
Russell Sage's way of doing busi
ness is worth describing. If a
privilege broker want to do busi- j
nets with him, lie must come with ;
his bid for x ut, a call or a strad- j
die already written on the cleck j
in hand. Sage looks at the paper
and say yes or no. This expedi
tion is necessary on aocount of the
thronsr of brokers wlio wish to deal
on his puts and calls. But so
eager is the greM cajM talis t to turn
an honest penny that lie rarely
acJk a privilege without exacting
from one dollar to five dollars in
cash as extra contribution from his
customers. He seems to think
more of these liettv gains than of l comidmiiee with the laws of hns

In something written Ave have an
indistinct recollection of having made
reference to a general disposition
among boys in their teens, as well as
boys of maturer years, to enl'ghtcn
and bless the world with their pro
found knowledge of the horse and his
history. Our books and newspapers
are full of this kind of literature, and
it varies in style from the production

with: The horse lun four legs and :i
tail; up to the eloquent tribute of the
scholar when he nuotes from Jeb: That
his nock is clothed wth thunder and
the glorv of his nostrils is terrible.
He smelleth the battle afar off, the
thunder of the captains and the
shouting. Between these two ex
tremes of the child nt his first school
composition, and the professional
literature, we have every gr.de of pre
tontion, and each professing to have
mastered the whole subject. As we
approach the close of this mneieonth
contury, we begin to look for some
thing better in this department of
knowledge from those who assume to
instruct." And it is to be found in

rThe time has long since passed
vhcn mechanical trades provided our
sons with a living. Labor-saving ma
chinery, patent tools and steam have
robbed tlie trade of the future it offered
to our boj-s in the days of the indentured
apprentice system. The idlers and do
nothings of our metropolitan cities aro
composed largely of tradesmen and
professional men, and merchandising is
a failure, if the number of bankrupt
merchants who had to succumb to tho
pressure of the times can be taken as a
criterion. What the country needs is pro
ducers, and the waste fields of unculti
vated land offers an opportunity to place
the rising generation in the way of mak
ing aome3 for themselves and better
times for posterity.

f A contemporary says: A news
paper and a newsjwper editor that peo
ple don't talk about and sometimes
abuse are rather poor concerns. Tho
men and business that an editor some
times feels it a duty to defend at a risk
of waking enemies of another class, are
often tlic very first to show ingratitude.
The editor who expects to receive much
charity or gratitude will soon find out
his mistake; but he should go ahead
and say and do what he conscientiously
thinks right without regard to frowns or
SB-Thc free lands of the west aro
being taken up and settled this year to a
degree most gratifying, in the face of
the over-crowded mechanical depart
ments of metropolitan life. Several mil
lions more acres of homesteads have
been entered for settlement at the var
ious land oflices this year than in the
past year, ami st ill the western movement
continues in force. And this is the only
solution of the labor troubles, hot tho
unemployed come and become producers
instead o"f consumers.
S?Wro see how life gels coined at
our mint, so that tlie world somehow
wears the stamp of the die cut into our
hearts. We know how a piece of good
fortune brightens the air; how some im
landing evil puts the edge of a spiritual
eclipse'iipon the sun; how suddenly ill
fortune in business will seem to make
the very springs of beauty bankrupt;
how the sickness of a dear friend turns
nature pallid; how the death of one
whom we love will convert all the trees
to cypresses and the music of the uni
verse becomes a rcquiuw ; bat how can
you expect your city to prosper if you
do not patronize the local press? Iio7
can you succeed as a merchant or 3
mechanic and not advertise?
