BOOMERANG OF GREED.
Tho failure of D. .1. Sully, tho cot
ton speculator, is merely another In
stnnco of overreaching greed. If Mr.
Sully had been content with a mod
erate profit of a million dollars, or
perhaps of three or four millions, he
could undoubtedly have come off with
a whole skin when cotton reached the
abnormal figures of the last of Janu
ary. Hut like other men Intoxicated
by success, ho was not satisfied with
his achievement. Tho fnsclnatlon of
the "game" or greed for money they
amount practically to the same thing
urged him Into another bull move
ment. Ho belloved he could put cot
ton to utmost any price he pleased
nnd he failed.
The enso Is by no menus peoullur.
The successful speculator who bo
comes overconfident, trios to run n
corner and Is pulvorUod In the at
tempt. Is a familiar figure In Amerlcnn
market history. Natural laws which
are always at work eliminating tho
unfit rarely allow the too groody spec
ulator to ofecape. Occasionally a rare
combination of qualities may save
him, but as a rule the man who trios

a tlmo whom tho gods would destro
they flrbt make mad but In the end
ho rarely survlvos.
Yet the failures that strew the path
do not deter u.her ambitious nnd
grasping men from betting out on the
samo course. Every new aspirant
imagines that be will prove too mnart
to be caught. Tho mistakes of others
ho will avoid. Ho does uot perceive

RUSSIA, LAND OF GRAFTERS.
To Petersburg enmo three Ameri
can business men to secure a gold
mining concession. There arc 851
places where gold Is found in Russia,
and our friends wuntcd tho prlvllego
of working ono of those places. First,
they had to deposit $50,000 with tho
Ministry of the Interior ns "good
faith." So much for tho regular legal
part of tho program. Now for tho ir
regular, illegal part. They kept in
their room at the Hotel Europe a bag
of hard, cold cash in golden rubles.
This cash they doled out in Install
ments, first to this prince, then to that
count, for "influence." Each time they
handed out the money they wcro told
that their proposition had been found
good, and promises were made that
the concession would bo speedily
granted. Each time the would-be con
cessionaires believed that they had
accomplished something, and each
tlmo they wcro disappointed nnd had
to refill tho money bng. The weari
some delay In tho negotiations con-,
tinned week after week; technical ob
stacles, each more serious than the
preceding one, were brought forward:
and so weeks grow into months, nnd
the Amerlcane were not one step nenr
er tho goal. Deciding that bankruptcy
would come before any kind of a defi
nite conclusion could bo obtained,
they went away with what cash they
had left and an accumulated amount
of disgust. Their $50,000 was returned
with all legal formalities, but consid
erably more than thnt sum was left
In the hands of tho princes nnd counts.
Such has been the experience of many
other Americans seeking to do busi
ness In Russia each In sheer despera
tion abandoning his enterprise. Gil

WISDOM OF MODERATION.
Instead of contemplating new ave
nues for extravagant display of force
or wealth, lot tho country consider the
wisdom of moderation. It has been
suggested that a public debt under
certain conditions serves a wholesome
purpose In restraining waste and
checking those enterprises which have
no other inspiration than national
vainglory or aggrandizement. "Pri
vate credit is wealth; public honor
The nation that needs to consider
economy Is not consuming vast wealth
and exploiting Immense resources in
huge nnd monstrous nrmaments that
chnllcnge the world. She is likely, In
deed, to avoid offense to other nations,
to bo slow to anger, and to cultivate
tne rewards of pence. Instead of seek
ing distinction as tho exponent of
mere splendid materialism, such a
people would meet tho magnificent de
scription that was made by the poet
"Enflamod with the study or learn
ing and tho admiration of virtue;
stirred up with high hopes of living
to bo bravo men and worthy patriots,
doar to God, nnd famous to all ages."
THE VALUE OF TREES.
In many parts of our country farm
ing would be Impossible but for tho
trees, such Is their influence upon
the streams. ThCy regulate tho wat
er supply, and their tendency Is to
prevent both floods and drought; they
supply fuel, one of the groatcst neces
sities of life, nnd they furnish tho
lumber for the building of our cities,
railroads, ships, and n thousand othor
things without which our present state
of civilisation would not hnve been
possible for agos, if at all. This Is
why wo hhould bo careful of our for
ohts. which are ast dwindling away
In many sections; this Is why we
Hhould legislate against sheep-grazing
in the forests, and ngalnst all other
practice which tend to cause forest
tiros, and why wo should try to pro
tect our trees from their natural ono
inios. such as landslides, floods, in
sects and fungi. And it is well to boar
in mind tho fact that wo cannot re
place in fifty years a tree which we

Incandescent Lamp Reflector.
How far would It have been possi
ble to advance business methods to
ward their present high Htnndard, and
what would be tho volumo of busi
ness transacted this year, were wo
still hampered with tho candles or
plno fagots of our forefathers! ns a

residences? It is tho conveniences of
he ago which have aided most in In
creasing tho volumo of dally transac
tions In tho commercial .world to their
present enormous amount, nnd no
greater convenience hns como to tho
business man than tho method of
lighting tho desk, office and manufac
turing plant. What would our ances
tors of less than 100 years back havo
thought of tapping a pair of wires at
any point and inserting a little glass
bulb, turning a button and obtaining
a light better than a dozen of their
candles could afford them? To-day It
has becomo such a common nffalr that
we seldom pause to think of tho Im
provement, but simply tnko It for
granted, as wo havo learned to do the
thousand and ono other things which
tho Inventor has plnced at our dis
posal. But oven this little glass bulb, with
Its rays of light utreamlng out all
around, Is open to improvement. In
almost every use to which this lamp
Is put there 1b no necessity for the
rays which lllumluato tho spuco above
tho carbon fllm, and this Inventor pro
poses not only to shut them out, but
to reflect them downward again,
where they will Increase the brilliancy
of the vertical rays. This Is accom
plished by tho use of the little metal

Tho meteorologist is gradually di
vesting the wind of Its mystery and
is able to explain convincingly how
nnd when It originates. The study or
a great number of observations taken
simultaneously all over tho country,
and In fnct all over two continents,
has enabled the expert to foresee just
when nt night the layers of air near
tho earth becomo cooled, and as cool
air is heavier than warm air, a law
of physics that Is generally appreciat
ed theoretically, but usually over
looked practically, this heavy air tends
to movo down the hillside. Tho ten
dency becomes after a time sufficient
ly pronounced to produce a general
downhill movement, eventually result
ing a perceptiblo breeze.
That Is what Is commonly designat
ed locally as "the mountain breeze,"
nnd which from its origin is practi
cally In one constnnt direction, though
the intervention of powerful storms
may temporarily reverse tho custom
ary movement. VIco versa during the
day tho presence of warmer and there
fore lighter air near tho earth causes
a movement, of the atmosphere with
an upward tendency, creating tho so
called valley breezes. In certain fav
orably situated localities the appear
ance of tho mountain or the valley
breeze is as regular as clockwork, the
transltloual period being marked by a
calm. Philadelphia Record.
Alloy That Defies Temperature.
Consul Guenther of Frankfort re
ports tho Invention by Dr. Guillaune
of an alloy of steel and nickel which
has tho useful property of not expand
ing with Increase of heat, retaining
practically the same volume tinder all
changos of temperature. By altering
tho proportions of the constituents, a
metal Is obtained which contracts
when heated. The utility of an alloy
which maintains an unchanged vol

Should the root house not be largo
enough it can bo turned with tho end

88 cubic feet of water per mluuto
should supply four horFo power, or for
a turbine under a head of four feet,
COS cubic feet of water per minute
would bo required to furnish tho samo
power. As tho correspondence does
not specify any particulars as to
amount of fall or size or stream, it Is
impracticable to answer this question.
Ants In an Orchard.
A Subscriber. Please tell mo what
will kill an ant hill in an orchard.
One of tho simplest remedies for
the destruction of ants In orchards is
to pour into each nost nbout a tea
spoonful of bisulphide of carbon, after
wards plugging the hole with a small
piece of sod presbed down with the
foot. Tho liquid evaporates quickly
and the fumes penetrate into all tho
parts of tho nest, destroying all tho
occupants. Another remedy Is to pour
scalding water Into tho nests.

Tho word "yeggman" Is now cllgi
