t BEAT WALL STREET THE REAL INVESTOR IS THE MAN WHO WINS. Gambler May Make Money by Lucky ChanJe, but He Loses In the End Patience la Necessary to Success. The man with a long vision1 wins In Wall street. This means thut the win ner must be a student of values. He must be familiar with the factors that make for or against prosperity, for Wall street is the barometer of trade. If the outlook Is unfavorable to busi ness, It will be reflected by o declining tendency In the stock market, and when conditions fuvor prosperity they will be forecast by a rise in the finan cial barometer. 1 have never known one who merely "gambled" In Wall street, that Is, one who bought and sold on the chance of winning or losing, who was ever suc cessful In the end, Jasper writes In Leslie's. lie might muke money by a lucky chance, just as he would at a game of cards or throwing dice, but in the end the odds were against him. With very few exceptions I have known of no one who Invested In Wall street securities with knowledge of what he was buying who did not come out with a final profit. It takes a long headed, patient man to this, however, and patience Is not one of the redeem ing virtues of the American people. Some observant financiers, Including one of the ablest In the country, the Honorable A. Barton Hepburn of New York, think that they see a slight halt In the wave of prosperity that we have been enjoying by reuson of the war abroad. They fear a marked but tem porary subsidence of this wave on the conclusion of peace, which may not be far off. Observers also think that In some lines of business promotion of new securities has been overdone and that the mass of "Indigestible secur ities," as the late J. P. Morgan called them, may prove to be a drug upon the market. I note that English papers ore In clined to believe that pence may come suddenly and unexpectedly, though not In the near future. Many who recall the bitterness of the contest abroad believe that it will prolong tho strug gle for two or three years to come, or at least until the resources of some of the contending parties are more nearly exhuusted. A breakdown In Austria Is first looked for. The greatest prosperity factor, out side of the crop situation, so fur as this country is concerned Is the presi dential election. It does not escape observation that as election day ap proaches, the leaders of both political parties ure expressing a greater Inter est In the consideration of business, .The voters are making up their minds us to which party can best be depend ed upon for the constructive loglsln tlon that our Industries and railways require. Everybody wants prosperity and every thoughtful voter will be on the side of the cundldute who promises to help prosperity. As the campaign proceeds and as the utterances of the presidential candi dates are heard and weighed, the Judg ment of the public will be formed, and as soon as It becomes uppurcnt that this Judgment will bo In favor of a cnndldnte distinctly representing u constructive policy, the stock mar ket and business generally will relied this sentiment. The Best Passage. A somewhat conceited clergyman, who was more celebrated for the length of his sermons than for their eloquence, once asked the late Father llenly, the famous Irish wit, what he thought of the one just preached. "Well, sir," replied the humorist, "1 like one pussngo exceedingly well." "Indeed, Father Healy, and pardon me for asking which passage you refer to." "Well, my dear sir," replied the wit, "the passage I refer to was from the pulpit to the vestry room." A Valuable Fish. Fishermen off the southern side of tho cape have been capturing sturgeon and tossing them back because they lld not know what to do with the big fish. Now they ore shipping them to market, having discovered that they ure worth 18 cents a pound, and are considered better even than swordflsh, Sturgeon flesh Is salmon color, and the spawn, of which caviare Is made, is a special dainty. Specimens taken on this coast have run from five to eight feet In length, and the fish are tnken In strong nets. Tho fish weigh from 1(K) to 300 pounds. Old Colony Memorial.

The Inst time we had a lynchln' here some of our prominent citizens who had been bed ridden for months, got up to take a hand In the proceodlu's." Truly Feminine.

Effective Tailored Suit The tailored suit Is of perennial In terest, for It Is much the same and must reuch the same standards In all walks of life. Nothing that women wear meets so muny critical eyes, and women step down and up to a com mon level when they wear correct street clothes. Therefore the tailored suit is to be most carefully selected. Wherever else she may be forced to practice economy every woman should give us much as she can for good ma terial and good style In her tailored suits. Thanks to manufacturers there are ready-made suits of moderate price that command the respect of the most discriminating of women. The- most effective suits follow current modes with so much reserve that they are not out of date with the passing of a single season. This Is especially true of the materials of which the best tailored suits are made. The suit shown here Is an excellent Trim and Neat for fa - - There ure many dainty Jackets de signed for morning wear that go to no great lengths to make themselves at tractive. They are, In fact, brief little garments whose story is soon told. But they are as sure of pleasing the eye and the good taste of women ns Is the wild rose. Here is one of them, mode of the very palest shade of pink, In cotton voile, with a narrow satin stripe running through It. Scattered over the surface of the cloth, the small est of roses, about us big as a pencil head, are set In equally diminutive leaves. The roses are in pink, deepen ing to the American Beauty shnile, This Is about the simplest of all morning Jackets and It doesn't take much calculation on the part of the least calculating woman to coiivlnce her that Its cost Is next to nothing. It only takes about three yards of voile a yard wldo to make the body and sleeves. Any other sheer fabric will answer the purpose as well us voile, and there are numberless cotton weaves, Including challle, organdie, lawn, batiste, mull and crepe, that are printed with nil sorts of flower pat terns. The Jacket pictured Is plain with long shoulder seams and throe-quarter length sleeves. It Is cut to hang straight from the shoulders, and gath ered In at the waistline by a ribbon run through a casing. The casing Is made by stitching a strip of the mate 1 v . 1 example of a standard suit, made of black and white checked material, which is never out of fashion. The skirt Is plain and rather full and flares sufficiently to be In the mode. The coat Is plain cu,t, with an easy adjustment to the figure, which is always smart, and has a full pcplum and wide belt of the material. Patch pockets, odd band cuffs, and high plain collar depend upon neat ma-chlne-stltchlng and bone buttons for an always correct tailored finish. The buttons are white, bordered with a rim of black. White washable gloves, black and white shoes, and a tailored hat faced with black belong In the company of this model suit. They complete the equipment of the wearer for the hap penings of the day. Breakfast Time rial to the under side of the jacket, The neck Is trimmed to n V shape at tho front and finished with a narrow facing, and the sleeves are faced also. All the seams are felled. A row of vnl lace Insertion and edging trims the bottom, having the edging whipped to the Insertion with a little fullness, to form a scant frill. A wldo collar and cuffs of white or gandie are finished with lace in the same way, and they are basted to the neck and sleeves as a finish to the jacket. Collar and cuff sets ore bought ready made and may be had for so low a price that It Is hardly worth while to make them. The Jacket fastens nt the throat with a snap fastener. Bellows Bag. A pretty workbag Is shaped exact ly liko the brass and leather bellows which reposes by your fireside. It Is made of cretonne, two pieces cut In bellows shape, with a gusset of plain material set In at the sides. Tho whole bag Is finished with braid, and a tassel dangles front the end. A strap of the cretonne which holds the two pieces together may pass over the owner's arm. It clasps with a 'snap on one side. LITTLE ESSAY ON PANTS Some Very Interesting Thoughts on Those Worn by Male of the Species. Pants are of two kinds; human and dog. The human pants of commerce are worn mainly by males. But equal rights prevail among dogs. Human pants are worn thicker in winter and thinner In summer. The dog's pants come thicker In the summer. The dog's lungs are the seat of Its pants. (Date 187o, Hostetter's Al manac.) White pants are not a garment. They are a business to themselves. The man who wears them doesn't work at much else at the time. When I was small and on a farm, I wore pants that were not new. So far as I could find out, they never had been new. When they had been first worn out, by the first tailless ancestor I had, they had been patched at all the ven tilated places. When the original goods wore out between the patches, the first patches were connected by other patches. And sew on. Where they overlapped the patches the goods became about an Inch thick. And when human legs made of any material less durable than vulcanized flint are Incased In a set of lnch-and-a-quarter Deer Island jeans trousers patched with every kind of heavy goods from horse blankets to rem nants of rag carpet when, I gay, any human nether limbs are Incarcerated In these bendless tubular garments In a wheat field on a southwest hillside at two o'clock on a clear, still day when the temperature Is 110 in the shade and there Is no shade, the owner of said legs thinks longingly of the bas tlle, the stocks, the pincers, the guil lotine, the pillory, the thumb-screw, the rack, the stake and other religious pleasantries. I have gone long days In the whent field In a pair of such asbestos pants lined with sandpaper or barbed wire, and now death or public speaking or fashionable dinners none of those things has any terror for me. I playfully inquire of death as to the location of Its stinger. Farm Life. Woman's Winning Force. The winning force In woman's life Is first of all, purpost a purpose which curries with it the assent of reason, the judgment of the mind and the ap proval of conscience. This purpose must be your own not another's. The sorrowful experi ences of many women Is that they are always children, with no plan of life, no will by which their energies are to be directed. Don't drift, but steer. Dare to be singular. Scorn to degrade yourself by yielding up your Individuality to suit the whim of the worthless. Now and then a woman stands aside from the crowd, lubors steadfastly and straightway the world wonders, ad mires and crowns the determined doer, and yet It only Illustrates what a growing and exhaustless force each woman might become if she took hold of life with a purpose. Determine to live for something last ing. Even goodness falls where there Is no will. You cannot dream yourself Into a character. You must hummer and force yourself Into one. New Russian Oil Fields. A newly verified Russian oil field, with an area of about 70,000 square miles, or about twice the size of the New Euglund states, now emerges strangely from a mass of explorers' data to suggest pretty strongly that current pessimism over the decreasing output of the oil fields of the Cuucasus Is not well justified. This new field, according to Russia, the monthly organ of It. Martens A Co., Is located in the Urul province, begins at the Caspian sea, taking a fanlike shape to the north as far as the town of Alexandrovsky Gal, runs nearly due east to the town of Temlr and from there In a southerly and southwesterly directions, following the Eniba river to the Caspian sea again. Although an attempt was made by the government to encourage the commercial exploration of this coun try as far back as 1800, no serious de velopment work had been done until very short time ago. Russia more now than ever, is feeling effects of the high prices of petroleum and its absolute necessity has led to the discovery of these fields. Wall Street Journal. Conundrums. It is often said that love is blind, and, Judging by the experience of a newly married couple, It hasn't much seuse of taste, either. A few weeks ufter the wedding a friend dropped into the bridegroom's studio and found the artist and his bride laughing heartily at some Joke, "What ever Is amusing you so much? he asked In amazement "Oh, It's been so funny," gurgled the young wife, as she wiped the tears of Joy from her eyes. "My hus band painted nnd I cooked this morn ing, and now we are both trying to guess what tho things were meant for." Costly Remark. "What do you think. Miss Chenille, a friend of mine got a three-karat dia mond ring for only twenty dollars!' "Why dou't you look out for a bar gain like that, Mr. Slowguy?" And presently It dawned upon hlra that the remark was going to cost him money. SPOILS MANY LIVES "BEST" TEACHER SCHOOL EVER HAD A FAILURE. She Refused to See the Opportunities Near Home and Created a Spirit of Unrest and Discontent Among Pupils. The "best" teacher we ever had in our old district school had a distinct ly bad influence In the community, says a writer in Farm Life. Born and raised in the country, she longed for the town with her whole soul. She despised the rural life. She thought all the wisdom of the world was printed in books, and that all the worthwhile opportunities of life were to be found In distant cities. She did not openly deride and mock our parents, of course, but we knew without being told what her feeling was. She was full of enthusiasm, and she found it easy to Inspire us with her own top-lofty ambitious. Most of the girls In the neighbor hood wanted to be Jenny Linds and Florence Nightingales. All the boys wanted to be heroes great soldiers, poets, judges, statesmen. None of us, of course, wanted to be great in his own neighborhood. Each thought hejhad to get away from home in order to' have a chance in life. Teacher could not, in fact, see the neighborhood. The eyes of her soul were afflicted with that disease which the oculists call hypermetropla. She could only see distant objects. The girls In the neighborhood, feel ing the Impulse toward "wider hori zon," drifted away to the towns and cities. They escaped the "deadening monot ony" of rural life by becoming wait resses In hotels aud workers in fac tories. Some fared a little better and Bome a great deal worse but none of them became a Jenny Llnd or a Florence Nightingale. The boys, too, were full of the grand unrest. They turned their backs scorn fully on the old homesteads. Each was "the architect of his own fortune," and teacher had taught him to believe that all the building mate rials were to be found in distant places. After they had failed as architects, many of them came humbly but gladly back to the old district and succeeded ns farmers. Now as never before In the world opportunity Is found on the farm, and every school teacher should know that, There are more statesmen of real worth and more genuine poets coming from the tall grass than from the tall buildings. The wider horizon is the privilege of youth, but It Is visible to everyone who lifts his head at home, while It Is too often obscured by clouds of smoke to the sojourner In the cities. Do not let teacher fill the minds of your children full of cheap romance while she Ignores all the beauty and dignity that should make rural life so satisfying. Paid $5,600 for a Colt. Those, who had the mistaken Idea that the day of the horse is passing must have received a rather severe jolt when Walter Cox paid no less than $5,G00 for an undeveloped year ling of standard-bred trotting blood. While higher prices have been ob tained for yearlings In other days, there has always been a record at tached to the natural breeding attrac tions of the youngster lit question. In this case, however, St. Frusquln, a son of the noted San Franclsco-Melisande, has never been driven against time, nnd thus the price establishes a new record on the sales market. It seems rather a pity that the name St. Frus quln should have been chosen for such a promising colt. It will Inevitably be confused, possibly at a disadvantage, with the great running horse St. Frus quln owned by Leopold de Rothschild which was the winner of the classic 2,000 guineas and was beaten only by the sensational Persimmon, then owned by the prince of Wales, in the derby of 1S00.

As chance would have it, the line passed directly through a large barn, having double doors on each side of it, and they found they could continue their measurements through the barn by opening the doors and thus avoiding the dreaded detour. The owner watched their progress with considerable Interest, but made no comment until they had reached the farther side of the barn, when he asked: That a railroad ye-all surveyin' for?" 'Certainly," replied the chief, with a humorous twinkle in his eye. The farmer meditated a bit as he closed the barn doors behind them, when he remarked somewhat aggres sively: "I hain't got no objections ter havin' 'er railroad on my farm, but I'll be darned ef I'm goin' ter git up at all hours of the night ter open and shet them doors fer yer train ter go through." Youth's Companion. The Softest Thing. Father," cried the little boy, put ting his BOth question to his long-suffering father, who was trying desper ately to slide into his afternoon nap. What is so soft that even a sott-boil- ed egg without the shell can break it?" 'Oh, run away for goodness sake, groaned poor father. "Will you give it up?" pursued the youngster. "With pleasure," sighed the father. "Your morning fast!" triumphantly yelled the kiddie as he darted out of the, room. London Ideas. Regularity Personified.

Before an Insurance Company will take a risk on your life the examining physician will test the urine and report whether you are a good risk. When your kidneys get sluggish and clog, yon suffer from backache, sick-headache, dizzy spells, or the twinges and pains of lumbago, rheumatism and gout. The urine is often cloudy, full of sediment; channels often get sore and sleep is disturbed two or three times a night. This is the time you should consult some physician of wide experience such as Dr. Pierce of tha Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y. Send him 10 cents for sample package of his new discovery, "Anuric." i rite him your symptoms and send a sample of urine for test. Experience has taught Dr. Pierce that "Anuric" is the most powerful agent in dissolving urio acid, as hot water melts sugar; besides being absolutely harmless it is endowed with other properties, for it preserves the kidneys in a healthy condition by thoroughly cleansing them. Being so many times more active than lithia, it clears tha heart valves of any sandy substances which may clog them and checks tha degeneration cf the blood-vessels, as well as regulating blood pressure. "Annric" is a regular insurance and life-saver for all big meat eaters aud those who deposit lime-salts in their joints. Ask the druggist for "Anuric" put up by Dr. Pierce, in 60-cent packages.
