work aoaeebedy atepa Into our shoes aatt
fills them better, la society people bare
to be told that we are gone because they
never mlsa us themselves, and oven In
our homes our family la heartbreaking
resigned to our loss.
The rare for conceit lies wherever you
cast your eye, sou. Tba wonderful thing
la that anybody can hold on to a rag of
vanity In the fare of all tha discourage,
ment to swell headlneaa that Ufa offers, t
I have received a most refreshingly
frauk letter from a voung man who
wishes a remedy for conceit. He says
that lie is twenly-flva years old and un
marrird, and that he cannot kelp but Par-
J reive how auprrlur
he Is to hie fellow
creatures, and how
h a n da o at a and
clever and witty,
and big, and strong,
and generally won
derful ha la.
"I do not think
that I deaerva any
credit for being
t what I am," writes
this youth, "for I
am only what tha
; Creator made me.
' N'nvertlirlres, while
' I feel that my con
j celt, or egotism, ta
perfectly Justified, I
also feel that It
would probably bo
I best for me to curb It and ao I will be
grateful to you If you will tell ma how
to do so."
I hesitate to offer my correspondent
the advice he requests, because It seems
a pity to shatter such a sublimely per
fect thing as this young man's good
opinion of himself. Also I would not
willingly mar anybody's happiness, -and
1 can think of nothing else in tha world
that la such a bubbling spring of Joy la
one's breast as to be able to anrnd one s
time hurling bouquets at one's self.
Hay what you will, vanity Is tha root
of all contentment. As long as you think
well of youraeir, It doesn't mailer a but
ton what other people think of you. Aa
long aa you can look In the mirror and
see an Adonis there, ao long aa yoa can
puff out your own chest until your but
tons won't bold, aa long as you ara ab
sorbed In listening to yourself talk, and
can laugh at your own Jokes, you ara
Just aa well off aa If you were the hand
somest, cleverest, moat successful and
entertaining man In the world.
And if other people think you a dull.
homely, tiresome failure In life, you can
afford to snap your fingers at their lack
of taate and Judgment. You csn even call
them envious and Jeaious. If you want
to add frills to the compliments you pay
In this world, where we dally see so
many big ieople who bava dona big
things. I shouldn't know bow to tell any
one huw to maintain an exalted opinion
of himself, but It's easy enough to tell
one how to acquire a humble opinion
of hie own merits.
On the principle that desperate diseases
demand de,perate remedies, my first
recommendation to the young man who
desires to be cured of conceit Is a heroic
remedy. It Is nothing short of getting
married. If that doesn't puncture his
balloon, and let all the gas out of him
nothing cle will.
No married peop! are conceited.
The cut be, for the Institution of
matrimony is Inlmlcable to the growth
of self-eeteein. No coneoltnif sprig of
vanity rrn take root In that rocky soil.
None of ua not even the meekest of US,
have any idea what ioor. weak. Imper
fect creatures ue ere until we get mar.
ricd and hav Hie partner of our bosom
remind us dally of our fsults and how
far wa fall short of being worthy of
the perfe. t being who condescended to
our loaly estate.
Ik-fore marriage we may have thought
that, like Haul, we lowered head and
shoulders above our fellow man, but
after marrlajre we realise that we are
the great oiiKlnal human ahrimp, and
none are ko p.r n our own household
a, to do uh reverence. You never hear
of a mirrlcd person calling for a sure
cuie for conceit. He or she has a home
remedy that alaays works, and for this
trouble I guarantee matrimony as a
specific that never falls.
If, however, he balks nt such severe
treatment as the altar, the next best
thing to matrimony for taking the
puffineea out nf m man's opinion of
himself Is to pick out the prettiest and
brightest and moet attractive girl he
known some girl with a reputation as
a heart smasher and see how many
dents he ran make In her heart. My
word for II. he'll come out of tha ex
perience a chastened and a humbler man.
floir.e day we will bulM monuments to
fllrta. I have aeen a little Innocent eyed
kitieneh girl knock a man's whole
opinion of himself Into a cocked hat be
fore you could aay scat, and turn a
pompo'-s egotist into a nice, quiet, ucob
trusttve, respectable citizen.

Is the wealth of any ona family so

thle could be done and Ik strings of"

would Indeed be realised.
The extent of the wealth of the vera
rich Is never an open book. A recent
estimate of the Hothachllda' wealth l :
made In an Interesting roundabout way.-
The fortune of tha house la said to have
been founded on profits made on the
London Stock Eirbange by a Rothschild -through
his having early Information of
the outcome of tha battle of Waterloo., r?
In the guesa as to tha present wealth of :
the family It la recalled that when one
of the four sons of James, who founded
the French branch of the house, died he
left to his daughter Helen about 170.
000.M0. The fortune of Helen's father,
was twice that sum. and his three,
brothers snd one sister Inherited as much J
as fell to him. From this It Is presumed.'.
that the combined fortunes of tba five '
heirs amounted to between S7W.oM.00u and T
tMO.OOB.OW in 14. Thera were four
branches of the family auppoaed to be
equally rich at that time, making their
wealth between Cm M M . -

ineir money they ahould have had from
$5.,e).M to K.400.000.w in MSt. and tn
net. from m,y.n,VH to tirn.tMo.n.
Since ISM tha combined fortune of tha
family should have been augmented by
one-third an that according to this rea
aonlng the Rothschild family I new the .
possessor of the snug sum of between

The American sliver dollar la a shade
