(In the account of the battle of,Buenna Vis
ta, it is said that the last man killed in the
,American lines was Capt. Taggart, of Brown
Co. In. _When struck down bin shot from
the Mexican battery, and knowing himself to
be dying, he exclaimed, whilst-extending his
sword to a comrade: "HEan, TAKE IT: I est.(

Two young storekeepers, whose capital in
trade was i. ther small, and who daily saw ex
cellgpt opp rtnniti'eS for making money 'pass
unimproved for want of the means to embrace
them, sat c nversing about their future pros
pects. Their names were Felix Granger and
"111 'could only raise five or six thousand
dollars sotnewherci!' remarked the.feriner.-tq
could 'double it in two years."'
"So could I, easily,"
,returned Day._ "But
that: amount( of money is not to be picked up,
readily. One thing, lam Making a good
inm! slowly in proving 'my condition, and
I suppose I ough to be contented. •,In the
end, if all goes on as it has begun, "shall ac
cumulate, I hope, enough to live upon."
''lt's too slow • work for me. 4I feel like a
man trying to ruh. with'elogil on - his feet.—
The' feet is, I mast have more capital from,
somewhere. I'll tell you what I've more than
half made up any mind to do."
“What!" ' . ' . , •
"Buy a ticket in the lottery and try my luck.
Prizes are drawn every day and why may not
kmeet with good fortuie?"
Day shook his head.
"What's your objection?" asked Granger,
• "I don't believe any good ever came of med.,
dling with lotteries."
"In the first place the chances are all against
drawing n prizf. Not more than one 'in a
_hundred is succPssful, and:yet the ninety-sine
who draw blanks are just as full of hope for
the prize as he, c,vlici draws it; and are just as
much diverted from right business thoughts
during the tine, that elapies between the pur
chase of.the ticket and the drawing of the lot
tery. The loss of thd drawer of the blank is,
n alone the loss of his money. He loses in
his business, often seriously, from the diver
sion of thought thaimusf accompany the sus
pense he is doomed for a time to feel. Instead
of applying himself diligently to the doing of
what his hands find to do in his daily employ
ments, he is thinking about the use he will
make of his money if he should be so fortunate
as to draw a prize. And in the second place,
if he should succeed in getting a,lucky num
ber, he will be almost certain to loose all he
has gained, and more betide, in:trying fur an
other and .a higher prize."
"Trust me for that," returned Granger.--
"Let me once get my fingers upon five, or
twenty thoustind_dollars, and you won't find
me.meddling with lottery tickets." ' ,
"I wouldn't any man," said Day.
"Not even yourself r'
"No, not even , myself."
"lArouldn't you buy a,tielret if youlcnew you
Would draw a prize?'' • ,
"As that ,is supposing what cannot be, I.
will answer neither hi the affirmative nor neg . --
alive. • But my own jrnpressien is, that mon-,

:any gohd." ,
"For'jhis, reason* Money is a standard of.
value,,and passes. in society * as a representa,
tive of some kind of property; which istething
in itself useful to mankind—as houses, jands,
produce, 'Manufactures, etc. When we rel . -
ceive money in business, represents a ben
efit we have conferred' upon another. But
when money comes through a lottery, it'does .
not correspond to any benefit conferred, but is
actually the correspondent of injury done to
others; for hundreds have lost that one might
gain. If a man in business accumulate ten
thousand dollars, that sum has. been•received
from perhaps more than a thou'sattil different
sources in return for wants supplied; but, if a

ed. The whole, proceeding, from .beginning
to end, has been disorderly and detrimental.
And I cannot but believe.that the money so
obtained will prove more a' 'curie to any one
than a blessing, and this because I hold that
.all evils in society react• with pain against
those who practise them." ' °
' "Give me ten thousand dollars, and will
run all such risks," said Granger. "Some
body wil l get the prize, and II might justas
well have it as any one. Camel Join me in
a ticket. I have been looking over a first-rate
scheme, which is• to be drawn day after to:.
But Dab, 'shook his head and Said "No,"
if you won't I will try my hick
alone. The tickets are only five dollars."
That day Granger bought a ticket. A doz
en times before the drawingof the lottery did
he call in to see his friend Day, and itiv often
did he imentioo what was upperthost in his
mind—the prize he hoped to draw.
"If I get ten thouaand dollars I will lend yod
two or three thousand to give you a' start,"
he said on the day before the drawing was to
take place. This was spoken in apparent jest,
but he really felt in earnest.
Day could not help, smiling.
"YEL may laugh," returned the other, "but
when you see me with ton or• fifteen" thouiand
dollars in hand you wilt pot think me the fool

Kr- you should be so lucky, I prophecy that
tour ten or twenty thousan,d dollars will do
you no good in the end. That in ten or twon
ly years you will be no better off in conse
quence of your prize."
l "I'll risk it." '
"No doubt you are perfectly willing to do
I "And so would you be."
"I shall keep out of temptation at least, by
not buving,aticket," replied-Day. "If I could
get more capital in my business in a perfectly
legitimate way, I should be glad to do so, for
then I could make larger and more profitable
operations. But as I see no approved mode
of obtaining this capital, I must be content to
to plod on lam now going. It will come
out right in the'end, I donbt not."
"I'll furnish you with more capital in a few
days," 'said Granger laughingly.
"Very 4(311. ill give you good security
and pay you a fair interest," was the laughing

"And I said true. I've got the twenty-five
thousand dollar prize as certain as death."
"Indeed!" - •
"True as preaching."
"Aye! Twenty-five thousand dollars.—
Think of that, friend Day!" - , •
And he caught the hand of his friend and
almost crushe,d it in a vice-like grip.
"Ain't I a lucky dog? I always said was

that I.had to wait long before the right aspect

Some weeks after this arr ngement had

Granger was dedply moved. • , '
The situation be asked was promptly given
to him. But the salary was only eight • hun- -
tired dollars a year. This small sum *5B
no w'ay adequate to the wants of Mrs. Gran
ger. She could spend it herself, twice over,
in the year, and because she could not get as
much as she wanted from hei husband, she
complained and fretted almost constantly.
Granger remained with Day only a few
months,• when his domestic ;irritations be
came so great that, in a fit of passion and des
pair, he left the city, and though some years
have passed, he has never since been heard of
by his family.
So much for a prize in the lottery! We
agree, perfectly, with Ellis Day; that no good
ever comes from money obtained by this or
any other species of gambling, and for the
reason already alleged, that does not cor
respond to any use in the community; but
has actually been obiiiined from those who
have' received no equivalents therefor. Other
reasons could also be given, but they) , must
readily suggest themselves to the mind of al
most every reader.
