A. O. HOIMCR, Publlshar.
HIS FIRST SPECULATION.
A Mhi Who (Inmhted In Ntorlct Without
ICnnnliiR Wlmt tin Wns Dolnc;.
"1- never fspeetilnte," Bald it tnnti who
has acquired a fair Blinro of tho world's
Roods, and who cnJoyn them ns inueli
perhaps as any other man Hltnllnrly slt
unted. "And yet I mado my flrnt real
Btnrt on a speculation. I. won at It ard
emit ahead of the (fame, as gnmblcra
ny. I have remained ahead of that
jjnmc over nlnce.
"It wuh out In California that I was
Jed Into my speculation. It was in the
days when mining Btoclci went up Into
-the sky lllcu rockets and eniuo down llho
tiel(8, just ns certain men wanted them
Ito do. I went out there to make my
,fortune, but In boiiio way It would not
onake. I really believe In luck, for I
pHd havo the worst possible kind of
luck, nnd then of a sudden, but will
come to that later.
"Have you ever heard of tho man who
was bo poor that he nlways earned his
fcrcakfaBt; ato it; earned his dinner; nto
lit; earned his supper; nte it; and then
lcpt where it did not cost anything?
Well, I was a good deal poorer than
that man, for I ato my breakfast and
then earned it. It was demoralizing,
yon may bo sure. Hut I happened to
meet a man in San Francisco who was
making u bi? stir out there in those
days. Ho was throwing stocks wher
over ho pleased, and that meant every
where. Tho way that man made money
rtook everyone's breath away. For some
reason ho took an interest in me por
jhaps it was because I could not make a
cent where he could make millions,
f " 'Young man,' ho said to mo ono day,
Mo you want to make some money?'
) "I thought I did. I thought it so em
phatically that I impressed him with
" 'Well,' he said, 'give me ono htm
iflrcd dollars nnd I'll fix it for you so
ithat you can make Mnucthlng.'
'. " 'A hundred dollars!' 1 said. 'If I
had a hundred dollars I'd get out of this
country. I haven't ono hundred cents.'
IllVmilniviin't ..1,' 'Plum T'11 li.ml If.
i ncver could pay you,' I said.
'"Yes you can. You can pay mo
noma dky. Just sign a note for it.
Uunlncs.s is business, you known. Then
fro nwny nnd don't ask any questions.
UuRt keep still till I got ready to talk.'
I "I went away, no richer and no poor
er, save that my name, which wasn't
worth anything U nnybody, was at tho
end of a note for ono hundred dollars.
) "I did not know much nlout stocks
and I did not earo much about them. I
only knew that there was a madness In
tho San Francisco market n few days
later. Some stocks went up nnd soma
went down. The stocks went up out of
sight. Then n hurricane struck tho
whole market and blew it away.
"A few weekB later I met my friend.
" 'O, by tho way,' he said, '1 havo a
note of yours in my pocket
" 'Yes, I gulped, feeling the strings
of my heart tighten, 'but I can't pay It
now. I warned you "
" 'Never mind about that now,' ho
paid. 'Here's your note. Now I'm go
ing ta give it back to you on one con
dition -that you promise mo never to
, speculate again.'
"I made him tho promtae.
" 'Young man,' ho said then, 'you
havo been in tho biggest hell's gamo
that ever was played in this market.
You havo won. I knew you would win.
That's why I let you try It Hut, young
man, and ho raised his hand, ointing
eloquently with his finger, 'you never
in the world could havo won it if you
hadn't been on tho inside. That's why
I inado you promise.'
"Then ho looked at
wrote mo out n check
speechless, nnd sent
which made mo
mo away. I do
ot to this day know what is tho
process of gambling in Btocks." N. Y.

Sngirestloni for the
In almost every household there are
articles which, as far as utility goes, aro
just as good an new, but which nro de
faced, faded or shabby-looking merely
becauso the finish on them has been
worn or otherwise injured. To throw
these away or pllo them in tho garret ia
an out-of-pocket tort of economy, and
ono which wiso housekeepers will not
indulge in, except for good and sufficient
It is a very easy matter to reconstruct,
renovate and rcilt household belong
ings, nnd if tho few necessary appli
ances are kept ready at hand, tho task
is neither unpleasant nor tedious, but
rather amusing. A brlght-wlttcd and
economical housewife, not long since,
invited ono of her friends to what who
called a "painting party," tho friend be
ing tho only guest. An attic room was
fitted up with n bench, paint pots nnd
brushes, and hero tho visitor was in
vited to seat herself as n spectator at
the evolution of a very old-fashioned and
almost hopeless-looking bedstead. It
was n four-poster a genuine old-tlmor.
Whllo it was badly scratched and not by
nny means in a presentable condition,
it had great possibilities.
The old, scratched paint nnd varnish
wero speedily removed with sand-paper,
which wns not a difficult operation, ns
nil of tho posts were turned. Then tho
pieces wero carefully dusted oil and
coated with wlilto enameled paint. Tho
operator had tried tho enamel Bitch as is
sold In tho Ktores, nnd found it answered
ndmirably ; but as It was much too costly
for use In any quantity, she tried a plan
of her own, which answered tho pur
pose very well.
Some white lead was mixed with very
flno coach varnish, thinned with turpen
tine until of tho proper consistency, and
this was used in placo of the enumol. It
mado a heavier body, and worked quite
ns easily, but required much moro tlmo
to dry. Tho first coat seemed to sink
into tho wood, and tilled up all of tho
cracks nnd crevices. When this was
perfectly hard, Which required Bomo
days, it was sand-papcrcd off with lino
Band paper until perfectly smooth, caro
being taken not to rub too deep, as only
tho roughness nnd possible species or
bubbles in tho paint were to bo removed.
This finished, :v coat of enamel, made
quite thin with turpentine, was npplled.
A number of articles wero worked over
in this way, some of them receiving
threo and others but two coats of tho
paint, the difference in tho wood regu
lating tho amount of paint required.
One piece had to havo four coats beforo
it was satisfactory.
Thero nro many persons who would
like to use enamel paints, but, like the
party mentioned, Und them too ex
pensive. When this Is tho ease, tho best
white lead, as it comes from the keg,
may bo mixed with good varnish until
smooth nnd somewhat pasty. Fine
turpentine should then be added, to put
it In working order. A comfortably
thick coat at llrst, well dried and sand
papered, then ono or moro thinner
ooats, will put in admirable condition
nny nrtlolo of furnituro not hopelessly
battered or broken. After tho llrst coat
Is on, putty should bo mixed quite soft,
nnd, with a putty knife, all holes, deep
ticams or cracks should bo filled and
carefully smoothed off. If this Is done,
tho paint will cover perfectly, and no
trace of tho putty will bo vlslUe. N.
In answer to tho protest mado by
practical women against long skirts for
tho street, Felix has designed several
robes trottcuses or walking dresses of
woolen stuffs, mado with a round skirt
that comes near to tho ground, yet just
escapes touching. Tho back is cut bias,
in tho popular fashion, and it is rounded
off at the foot to avoid tho necessity of
lifting or of tucking up. A favorite
model has this skirt of flax gray serge,
which is easily brushed, and docs not
spot, ornamented with appllquo fes
toons of dark green velvet. A blouse
waist of plisso surah of dark myrtlo
green shade Is confined by a Russian
belt of silver and gold galloon fastened
by a Kremlin buckle. A Figaro jacket
of tho gray serge, with largo sleeves
trimmed with green velvet, is worn
over tho blouse when in tho houso, but
is replaced for tho street by a longer
casaquo of Bcrge, with revcrs, collar,
and cuffs of green velvet. Similar dresses

rouge uhado now so popular in Puris,
with trimmings of blank vc1tU Hot
