HiS FIRST SPECULATION
A Mnn Who tlambleil In Stocks Without
Knotting Wht Ifo n'ai llnlriK.
"I never upcculnte," nnld a mnn who
has acquired a fair Minns of tho world's
good, anil who enjoys them its tntiuh
pcrhnps ns nny other man similarly sit
uated. "And yet I made my first real
start on a speculation. I won nt It and
quit nhead of tho game, as gamblera
ay. I have rcmnlnud ahead of Unit
gnmo over since.
"It was out in California that I was
led Into my speculation. It was in tho
days when mining stocks went up into
tthe sky llko rockots and camo down lllra
otlcks, jtut as certain men wanted them
Ito da I went out there to mnko my
fortune, but in some way It would not
make. I really bcllcvo in luck, for I
Slid havo tho worst possible kind of
uck, and then of a sudden, but will
come to that later.
i "Havo yon ever hcanl of tho man who
tvns m poor that ho always earned his
fbrenkfnst; itto it; earned his dinner; ato
lit; earned his supper; ato it; and then
slept where it did not cost anything?
jWcll, I was a good deal poorer than
,that man, for I ato my breakfast and
,thon earned it It wns demoralizing,
you may bo sure, lint I happened to
meet a man In San Francisco who was
snaking a big Btlr out there in thoso
days. Ho wns throwing stocks wher
ever ho pleased, and that meant every
where. Tho way that man mado money
itook everyone's breath away. For somo
reason ho took nn interest in me per
ihnps it wns becauno I could not make a
cent whero ho could make millions.
" 'Young man,' he said to me one dav,
rao you want to muku homo money?'
"I thought I did. I tltotiiriit it so
Iphatically that I imposed hlin f-lth
" 'Well,' ho said, 'glvo me ono
Bred dollars and I'll fix It for yon
itnatyou can mauo something.'
" 'A hundred tlollnrs!' I wild. 'If I
ad it hundred dollars I'd getoutof this
country. I haven't one hundred cents.'
"xou Haven't, eh? Then I'll lend It
".'I n,eAcr could pay you,' I said.
j "'ices you can. You can pay mo
eomo dioy. Just sign n noto for it
'Business is business, you known. Then
go away and don't ask any questions.
Just keep still till I got ready to talk.
I "I wenYaway, no richer and no poor
er, satfft that my name, which wasn't
worth anything to anybody, was at tho
end of a noto for ono hundred dollars.
I "I did not know much about stocks
and,Idid not caro much about them. I
only kuew that there was a madness in
th San Francisco market a few days
later. Some stocks went up and some
went down. Tho stocks went up out of
Right Then a hurricanu struck tho
tvholp market and blow it nway.
. "A few weeks later I met my friend.
" 'O, by tho way,' he said, 'I havo a
noto of yours in my pocket'
" 'Yes,' I gulped, feeling tho strings
of my heavt tighten, 'but I can't pay it
now. I warned you "
" 'Never mind about that now,' ho
said. 'Here's your note. Now I'm go
ing to glvcjk back to you on ono con
dition thin you promise mo never to
'Tmadd hlra tho promise.
" 'Young man,' ho said then, 'you
hat been in tho biggest hell's gamo
that over was played in this market
You havo won. I knew you would win.
Thnt'a why 1 let you try it Hut, young
roan, and ho raised his hand, pointing
eloquently with his finger, 'yon never
In tho world could have won it if you
hadn't been on the inside. That's why
I insde you promise.'
"Then ho looked at n memorandum,
wrote mo out a check which mado mo
speechless, and .sent mo away. I do
not to this day know what is tho
process of gambling in stocks." N. Y.
PEASANT LIFE IN SICILY.
A rrfbple"Noteil for Thrlr Sobrletr and In-
Ono of the elements of progress among
tho peasantry is tho conscrlption.whoso
srery nomo they onco abhorred. Tho
Sicilian peasant, a very different being
from tho poor miner, goes to tho conti
nent and comes back ainnzcd at tho dif
leTence between the stylo of life and
culture at homo and abroad. Ho is
looked upon as an authority, Insists on
the children's being sent to school,
knows nil about provident societies,
and yet has lost none of his lovo for his
nntlvo island. So strong is this lov
that Sicily figures last on the list of
Italian emigration, and though the fig
ures havu slightly increased of Into
years thvy do not amount to bIx thou
sand for tho entire Island.
When Italy shall embrace tho Ameri
can or Swiss system of nntldnal defense
and abolish standing armies which uro
har ruin financially, Sicily will proba
bly take her pluco first on tho list of
"high farming" countries in Europe,
for her sun and soil remain her own,
her children uro among tho hardest
toilers und most frugal livers on tho
facUolthe earth; drunkenness is un
known among peasants, oven when

crime goes, though great, it is on tho

plnecd under nrrcat'y&tcnlayos an la-
dictment found by tho ftamt grand;
jury, charging them with violation of
the Inter-stnte commerce law.
Mr. Farrell, In explanation, said the
case, as ho understood it, referred to a
carload of sirups and Jellies snipped to
Salt Lake City. Ho said tho transac
tion was entered into between bin ship
ping clerk and nn inspector of tho
Western Railway Weighing association
without his knowledge. The inspector,
Mr. Sharp assorts, hinted that he might
bo induced to manipulate tho rate, and
asked: "How much will there bo in it
An agreement wns finally reached,
after somo dickering, that tho inspector
should receive f 10 for his part In the
Tho car in question was loaded with
about 22,000 pounds of jellies nnd 7,000
pounds of sirup. It was billed as a car
load of sirup. Tho saving by tho incor
rect billing was SO cents per 100 pounds.
Mr. Farrell discovered what his clerk
had done, and instructed tho clerk to
mnko out n correct bill of lading,
and tho local freight agent of tho
Union Pacific corroborates this state
ment For somo reason tho car was
sent through on tho manipulated bill.
Mr. Farrell is of tho opinion that this
was dono at tho Instnnco of Georga Car
man, of Chicago, tho superintendent of
tho Weighing association, who, ho bo
1 loves, was back of tho whole affair nnd
laid a trap to inyolvo him In trouble.
Mr. Farrell charges Mr. Carman with
a conspiracy, and has been advised by
his attorney that ho has n cuso against
tho Chicago man,

In almost every household there are
articlcs.whlch, as far as utility goes, are
Jtlst as good as riow, but which aro de
faced, faded or shabby-looking' merely
because the finish on them has been
worn or othcrwiso injured. To throw
these nwny or pllo them In tho garret is
an out-of-pocket sort of economy, and
ono which wlso housekeepers will not
indulge in, except for good and sufficient
It is a very easy matter to reconstruct,
renovate and relit household belong
ings, nnd if tho few necessary appli
ances arc kept ready at hand, tho tusk
is neither unpleasant nor tedious, but
rnthcr amusing. A brlglit-wlttcd and
economical housewife, not long since,
invited ono of her friends to what sho
called a "painting party," tho friend be
ing tho only guest. An attlo room was
fitted up with n bench, paint pots and
brushes, nnd hero tho visitor was in
vited to seat herself ns n spectator at
tho evolution of a very old-fashloncd and
almost hopelcsa-looklng bedstead. It
was n four-poster a genulno old-timer.
While it wns badly scratched and not by
nny means inn presentable condition,
it had grent possibilities.
Tho old, scratched paint nnd varnish
wero Bpcedlly removed with sand-paper,
which wns not a difficult operation, as
all of tho posts wero turned. Then the
pieces wero carefully dusted off nnd
coated with whlto enameled paint, Tho
operator had tried tho enamel such as is
sold in the stores, nnd found it answered
admirably; but as it was much too costly
for use in nny quantity, sho tried a plan
of her own, which answered tho pur
poso very well.
Somo whlto lead was mixed with very
flno c6ach vnrnlsh, thinned with turpen
tine until of tho proper consistency, and
this was used In placo of tho enamel. 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 filled up all of tho
cracks und crevices. When this was
perfectly hard, which required somo
days, it was sand-p.ipcrcd off with flno
sand paper until perfectly smooth, caro
being taken not to rub toodeep, ns only
tho roughness nnd posslblo specks or
bubbles in tho paint were to bo removed.
This finished, a coat of enamel, made
quite thin with turpentine, was applied.
A number of articles wero worked over
in this way, somo of them receiving
threo nnd others but two coats of tho
paint, tho difference in tho wood regu
lating the nmount of paint required.
Ono pieco had to havo four coats beforo
it was satisfactory.
There uro many persons who would
like to use enamel paints, but, llko tho
party mentioned, find them too ex
pensive. When this is tho case, tho best
whlto lead, ns it comes from tho keg,
may bo mixed with good varnish until
smooth and somewhat pasty. Fine
turpentine should then bo added, to put
It In working order. A comfortably
thick coat at first, well dried and sand
papered, then ono or moro thinner
coats, will put in ndmirablo condition
nny nrticlo of furniture not hopelessly
battered or broken. After tho first coat
is on, putty should bo mixed quite soft,
nnd, with a putty knife, all holes, deep
scams or cracks should bo filled and
carefully smoothed off. If this Is done,
tho paint will cover perfectly, nnd no
trace of tho putty will bo vlsll le. N.
In nnswer to tho protest made by
practical women hgainst long skirts for
tho street, Felix has designed several
robes trottcuscs or walking dresses of
woolen stuffs, made with a round skirt
that comes near to tho ground, yet just
escapes touching. Tho back is cut bias,
in tho popular fashion, nnd it is rounded
off nt tho foot to avoid tho necessity of
lifting or of tucking up. A fuvorito
model has this skirt of flax gray serge,
which is easily brushed, and does not
spot, ornamented with applique fes
toons of dnrk green velvet A blouse
waist of pllsse surah of dark myrtle
green shade is confined by a Russinn
belt of silver and gold galloon fastened
by a Kremlin buckle. A Figaro jacket
of the gray sergo, with large sleeves
trimmed with green velvet, is worn
over tho blouso when in the house, but
is replaced for tho street by a longer
casaquo of serge, with rcvers, collar,
and cuffs of green velvet Similar dresses
are made In dahlia serge, tho violet
rouge shade now so popular in Fnris,
with trimmings of bhvtk vclivt liar
