"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 any earnestness. " '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.'

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 a memorandum, which made mo mo away. I do ot to this day know what is tho process of gambling in Btocks."

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 reasons. 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. Y. Ledger. Walking I)rcsc. 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.
