tively Binall, A farmer rarely fails,
and when lie docs, his laborers losu
ltttlo or nothing. 1Tlicy fiavo had their
board, hud tlioy usually tako up their
wngcH ns rust ns they aro earned. Un
tho other hand, in other avocations' tho
losses nro often enormous. Tho failuro
df n singlo mining or manufacturing
cnloipnsc not infrequently Involves tlio
total ruin of all connected with it.
In' soirio forms of manufacturing,
commercial and mining activity, safety
and success teem reasonably certain.
lJut theso. aro not tlio great enterprises
which cantivato tho imagination. They
nro rather operations conducted after
tho modest, plodding fashion of ordi
rinry agriculture. In manufactures it is
tho small mechanic who earns a steady
living and lays by a small sin plus for
lus children, who is tho most favored
of his class. In commerco tho safest
business is douo by tho small trader,
especially in tuo country, where, all his
customers nro personally known to him.
As a medium of exchange between
country and city, between the farm and
tho factory, ho barely earns an honest
living lint tako theso traders alto
getber, and tho net results of their la
bor and capital invested averago better
thirt thoso of tho moro ambitious who
seek tho' higher positions. In mining,
too, tho safest investment is whero tho
baser metals, iron, lead and copicr,and
coal to work them, arc concerned. It
would seem to follow from simple ana
logy tliat agriculturo itself becomes
hazardous, as it expands into bonanza
farming, and the herding ol uncounted
cattle On vast ranges.
Of course, thero could bo no trado or
manufactures without farming as a
baBis, and the rudesffofm" of agricul
ture, tho gathering of tho spontaneous
fruits of tho earth, is tho foundation of
every iridUBtry. But this docs not jus
tify tho farmer' in taking thosd risks in
other forms of industry which he too
often incurs. When farmers loso mon
oy it is not usually in tho pursuit of
agriculturo; but of something elso. Tho
farmers of tho conntry would bo richer
if they had confined themselves to
farming and not taken (stock in somo
railroad or manufacturing company, or,
worse still, 'in somo mine which they
never saw. The desiro to get enormous
profits, to find n fortuno instead of
oarning it, is. as old. as tho human race,
Top often tho farmer who will take a
week in considering, tho valuo of a cow
ho desires to purchaso of n neighbor,
and then disagrees on n dollar or two
iu tho price, will invest his hundreds
and his thousands, if he has them, in
tho "Great Bottomless Gold Mine,"
situated in tho Mountains of tho Moon.
It, is this spirit of speculation, or tho
desiro to get something out of nothing,
which in fntal. Tho raising of ono
$5,000 dolt has demoralized whole com
munities. Tho sales by somo fancy
cattle breeder, whero a heifer brings
81,000, .the exceptional profits of a sin
glo hop or tobacco crop anything
which wins a prize, liko n successful
lottery ticket too often brings on tho
delirium of speculation. The farmer
should bo' tho last man in tho world to
incur theso gamblers' risks. His school
ing unfits him for tho excitement of
such games. The rewards of his labors'
aro found in tho quiet of rural life, do
mestio comfort, tho sanctities of home.

In the middlo of a plain plaza, writes
Kannio Ward from Puebla, Mexico, is
a singular monument a bronzo wo
man Bitting quietly on a rampant horse,
which anpears to be in a stato of wild
excitement, whilo its rider is as un
ruffled as a Summer morning, So
long ago was this alleged work of art
erected that tho "oldest inhabitant"
fails to remember whom it was intend
cd to honor. Doubtless it was to
Donna Marina, Cortez's guido and in
terpreter, for hero alio is regarded al
most as a saint tho Indian Kgcria,
tho first Christiau woman of tho Mex
ican empire. Tiuc, hcra wag a sort nf
Christianity which would not stand tho
test of nineteenth century ideas, but,
was not unusual in licr day, and prob
ably sho would now bo quite a saint if
sho had not fallen from her high cslato
in tho conqueror's favor, though
through 110 iault ot her own, nnd be
como afterward a commonplace wife
and mother. History tells us that sho
wont rclunctaiitly and with many tears
to tho husband whom (Jortez chose
when ho wished to get rid of her, bo
eauso his own wife aud children wero
coining from Cuba. Poor Donna Ma
1 ina 1 Certainly her lot was not a hap
py one. Sho was born at I'ainala, a
village of tho provinco of Cuatzacnalco.
Her father was lord of many cities,
and alio fell into a condition of slavery
tlirough tho tieaohery of her own
mothor, who remarried nfter tho death
of Marina's father. Bestowing all her
affections upon tho sun of her second
marriage, thu unnatural mother deter
mined; iu concert of tho boy's father,
that all their wealth should pass to
him It chanced that tlio daughter of
one of their slaves died, upon which
they' gavo out that the corpse was
that of their own daughter, and pre
tended to mourn for her, meanw hilo
selling her, a la Joseph, to some mer
chants of Gicalauco. TIiojo traders
disposed of her to their neighbors, tho
Tabascans, who gavo her to Cortex
soon after his arrival in Mexico.
Sho is said to havo been beautiful,
of great talent and versed in many dia
lects. Through her devotion to Cortex
sho proved a faithful friend lo tho
Spaniards, serving an their interpreter
in all negotiations with tho various In
dian tribes. Sho ncoompanied Cortcz
iu his expeditious. Ho followed her
advice implicitly, and moro than once,
when acting ns guido or spy, sho saved
tho little band from annihilation. In
deed, in tho whole history of tho con
quest, "Donna Marina'' played a most
important part, and to lur more than
to any other ono person U duo the sub
jugation of tho Slexican empire. Ber
nal Diaz, Cortcz' friend and insepara
ble companion, writes that tho number
of "wives" tfltich tho conqueror and
his officers acquired in tho now world
was so great that they were obliged to
brand tiiem with heated irons, like cat
tie, in order to distinguish each man
his own property. Hut after the brand
ing these numerous spouses wero all
duly baptized. Cortez died a disap
pointed man. His son by Donna Mari.
ni Mai tin Cortez, who was a knight
ot tho order ot Santiago who was tor,
tured to death in tho time of Philip II,
on a cuargo ol rebellion, and tho buo
cancers that ravaged theso coasts for
two hundred years intlictcd penalties
upon all his descendants. It is related
that when Cortez went to Honduras
hia fnir interpreter met thero her truil
ty relatives, who wept at her feet, fear
ing sho would havo rovengo for their
cruel treatment. But, instead of bar
boring vengeance, sho oxprossed thank
fulness for tho troachery which had re
sulted in her elevation, and rewarded
them with many gifts. Tho Spaniard
to whom Cortez married her niter tho
conquest was Captain Don Juan do
Jaramillo, and her slrango career out!

judging her harshly, the day and the
