Itockcfeller Ih credited with Haying
1 do not believe that there Is a man
In this country today with n million
dollnrs beyond IiIh own personal and

vonie of our previous notlotiH It Is
specially fatal to that widely held opin

the more he wants If Mr Rockefeller

Acquisition of gold when It becomes
the main object of life limiting n man
miserly It ou the contrary broadens

ity In fact with this uew light on the
subject we sec thnt In order to learn
bow valuable money Is to other people
one must devote his life to snatching It
for himself It inny certainly bo set
down iih a fact that no man but a mil
lionaire Is eaten up by a desire to give
nway all that he has If Mr Rockefel
ler expects the hard working and av
erage American to swallow this taf
feta lit a gulp ho Is very much mis
taken There are certain facts In hu
man nature that are dead against his
conclusion and one is that If a man
begins business with n particularly
generous nature and a moderate
knowledge of the amount of need
there Is In the world ho will never be
come a millionaire The question has
been Impertinently asked by the so
cialists mid It has never been satis
factorily answered Can a man In nu
ordinary lifetime mnko a hundred mil
lion dollars honestly and give an
equivalent for It V It Ib uot at all Im

Htatemeut to answer that question to
this extent No man can make n hun

proposition that be Is willing to give
all over and above his personal needs

The Distribution of Wealth
Mr Audrew Carnegies statement
that a man ought uot to die rich
and bin determination to try nud get
rid of all his wealth before death over
lakes blui have been received with
much Incredulity But there Ib cer
tainly a growing disposition on the
jart of our rich men to ifcturu some
tportlon of their wealth to the com
munity In which they made It The
list of magultlceut bequests thnt have
been uinde wlthiu a year will bring
tills to view Moat of them have been
lu favor of public Institutions
ud charities The Into Mr Robert 0
JlUllugs left 1500000 to be distribut
ed In this way A careful computa
tion of the money given within teu
years by rich meu and women to pub
lic charities and educational enter
prises would make one of the most as

and is already attracting the attention

Senator Chnuncey Depew once more
upon his native heath roiy vivacious
Toluble mid clear headed proceeds to
deliver with inimitable grace his little
lecture lu the shape of an Interview
ou his summer tour Some of his ob
servations nre worth listening to again
because they are as sagacious as usu
al and time cannot rob them of their
perennial charm Ills fnclle sketch of
the difference thnt bo once more ob
served existed between Franco and
Kuglnud is informing and tilling
JFrauce clings to the usages the glitter
aud the frivolity of the empire in spite
of her republican preteuslous Her
people shout mid slug republicanism
but do uot take kindly to Its simplicity
tThey nre democrats lu the street but
Imperialists nt the theater the horse
race nud the military review Over In
England the turmoil and uncertainty
of the continent do not disturb a
lialr Our Chnuncey finds once more
that finances society politics Institu
tions move straight along unperturb
ed as they have always moved Year
after year he makes his annual visit
and the same hands are stretched out
to receive him the same barber or the
ame barbers sou shaves him he Is
put up In the pnme room waited upon
by the wuno maid or the snmu innhli
daughter he In hmiiled the snnio can

and thus the tight llttlo Islo Jogs

dynasties nre trembling on the brink

whether It shall erect barricades and
go backward or Jump suicidally Into

Ohauncey Always when the human
heart Rinks Into despair anil thu causa
of man is lost somebody Intercepts
Chauiicey nud then the dawn appears
nud all In well with the world He has
Just been Interviewed In Loudon and
presto here he Isl The situation In

seems gradually becoming more satis

changing of ministers these cries from
the housetops are surely lnylng the
foundation for something better mid
making men divide off Into those cog

thu very front rank This beaming
obviousness Is positively refreshing

Mr Rockefellers monolith cut
from a solid piece of granite to be set
up In the Lake View cemetery is
receiving a great deal of hastily
written admiration Ono dispatch
sent out nil over the country says it
Is the largest monument of Its kind In
tho world This is palpably untrue
The Lake View obelisk Is K feet high
and weighs 80 tons whereas the
Egyptian obelisk lu Central park
New York Is W feet 11 Inches high
nnd weighs ISO tons In cutting me
morials of this kind the undents still

Mrs Frances Hodgson lluruett linn
shaken tho dust of America from her
feet and goue to live permaueiitly lu
England There nre some evidences of
pique In this movement Her last
book A Lady of Quality was uot
well received In this country It was
pronounced by the critics a snd falling
off from the standard she had raised in
That Lass o Lowrles and Itwas un
deniably theatric and tawdry When
It was produced here upon the stage
by Miss Julia Arthur the two women
fell out over it Mrs Burnett had sc
lected as the Ideal of her heroine an
English actress nud nothing that Miss
Arthur could do satisfied her But
Miss Arthur made a success of the
role and the Ideal English woman fail

worse and now Mrs Buruett like Mr
Astor bns gone to England to spend
the money she made lu America
Tho celebration of the Fourth of July
this year was far more earnestly patri
otic in the small towns of the ccntrnl
aud western states than It was In the
large cities of the east where It ex
pended Itself In meaningless noise and
ordinary outdoor games But In many
of the lesser Iowub and quieter ham
lets of the country the Declaration of
Independence was read with solemn
sincerity and local orators fauued the
old flames of patriotism Aud this Is
as It should be Tho Fourth of July
Is the uatlous chronological altar

and tell them over all those hack

The women shoppers of Chicago art

If Mr Poultney Bigelow ever returns
to the United States he will probubly

Modesty is the crowning virtue of American women It is the trait
that all mankind admires A modest woman is the most pleasing of all
created things Because of this becoming virtue thousands of women
prefer to suffer untold miseries rather than confide their troubles to a
physician and to even think of submitting to an examination is revolt
ing They cant get their own consent to an operation Wine of Cardui
permits sensitive women to retain their modesty With it they can cure
female troubles in the quiet of their own rooms If special treatment
