"She is very liberal in her chari

"Yes," answered the other; "lib

Is a wonderful pump that works in
cessantly, averaging' seventy 50-pound
strokes a minute, and forcing from 20
to 30 pounds of blood throughout the.
body each minute.
The power that keeps this wonder
ful pump in motion is nerve force, the
energy, furnished by the nerves.
Disease, over-exertion, fright, anxi
ety, alcohol, tobacco and other stimu
lants weaken these nerves, but the
heart, instead of stopping, makes ex
traordinary efforts and causes heart
Then comes shortness of breath,
heart palpitation, dizziness, etc., be

Dr. Miles' Heart Cure
It feeds, strengthens and builds up
the nerves and muscles of the heart so
they can supply the necessary energy.
"Dr. Miles' Heart Cure is a marvel
ous remedy. I always use it when
cardiac trouble is present. It meets
the indications surely and completely."

MEAD CYCLE CO., Dp. HOT CHICAGO
Tho New York stock exchange is
a private club, ruled by a house com
mittee. Its membership is limited
to 1,100, and the seats are worth all
told about $90,000,000.
To pay interest on that sum, cover
exnenses and provide incomes for
1.100 men and their thousands of
partners, a great volume of busi
ness is necessary. Stocks and bonds
of the par value of $22,757,254,000
were sold last year in this one ex
change. This sum is six times as
ereat as all the savings bank depos
its of the country. It is six billions
greater than the yearly product of
all tho vast manufacturing industry
of the country. It is thirty times as
great as the net earnings of all our
railroads. It exceeds even the total
capitalization of the railroads by a
sum nearly equalling all tho wealth
If exchange members were brok
ers merely, this flood of transactions
of which not more than 3 per cent
represent purchases for income in
vestment, would cost tho community
only $55,000,000 a year, the nom
inal amount of the "kitty." But in
comparably greater loss is incurred,
immeasurably greater damage to
legitimate business is suffered,
through the use of general banking
resources in speculation. The Hock
ing pool operations would have been
impossible, as Willard V. King points
out, had not banks loaned money up
to 80 per cent of the "market value,"
at $92.50, of stock now priced at
In every such case it is trust
funds that are risked. The wages
of workmen laid away in savings
banks for a "rainy day; the provision
of thrifty men, through insurance,
for their families after their death;
the working capital of merchants
and manufacturers; the earnings of
lawyers, preachers, teachers, doc
tors, deposited in banks ail tnese,
through the interlocking of financial
institutions, aro jeopardized by Wall
Street gambling. And, since the
death of E. H. Harriman led to a
truce between the Morgan and
Standard Oil "groups," all these are
now manipulated by a money trust,
which moves prices up and down by
extending or calling loans.
No other great nation permits it
self to be so exploited. More stock
camblinff is done in London than in
New York; but the banks do not fur
nish chips for the game. There is
in London no pretense of actual
transactions, such as is made here
in daily deliveries. Stock gambling
debts are settled once a fortnight.
The public which wishes investments
is protected against gross cheats by
the criminal law. In New York
county a Whittaker Wright need not
have committed suicide. In London
the ship building trust could not
have .been floated, the Metropolitan
Railway robbed, without some one
going to jail for it. And London
brokers do not gamble in stocks.
The financial strength of Franco
is a standing marvel of the business
world. There too gambling ana in
vestment are kept separate. There
aTe only seventy brokers on tne i-ans
bourse. Bach provides a guarantee
fund of $500,000. The $35,000,000
so procured insures any customer
of any of the seventy against loss.
The $90,000,000 value of New York
seats on 'change is the property of
the members. If a broker fails, his
customers lose, even though they be
investors and not gamblers. But
the $35,000,000 fund of the Paris
bourse is the protection of the pub
lic TCvflrv bourse broker has his
appointment signed by the president
of tho republic. Ho is an official.
He must not gamble. Nearly every
thrifty peasant Invests in securities.
His bank buys them for him and
permits him to pay in installments,
but it will not lend to gamblers.
In Germany tho system is like
our own in that there Is a dual sov
ereignty of stato and nation. It Is
unlike ours in that this sovereignty
is used, and gambling regulated. The
The board of brokers in a German
bourse fixes the prices for tho day.
There is no ticker, no frantic bid
ding of bulls and bears, no hourly
ebb and flow of prices. A man who
gambles in stocks must register as a
speculator, and speculating in com
modity futures is forbidden, though
a farmer may sell produce, or a man-
