The lirst thu.jr did was to climb

"Thiri thine; cannot go on long. 'This

still go on.
Then I went to a broker whom 1

dirlerent names ol stocks on tho list.
Tbcso wero represented by one, two,
or threo letters or figures, or sumo sort
of Abbreviated word that I could not
understand or distinguish, and I waB
constantly getting confused.
Around this "ticker" gathered and
grouped a knot of eager, nervous and
anxuius men. Ten, lilteen, or twenty
at a tnno would clutch at the tapo as
it streamed out with its endless lines
of quotations and mutter to themselves,

drop the tape and dash away. Others
would dart in, clutch tho tano. swear
or chuckle, as their fortunes went.
wheel about, givoorders to their broker
to buy or sell, as they pronhesied tho
future of tho market; and so it went
on all day, from 10 to 3, when tho battle
was ended by tho full of tho hammer
in thehtock J'.xchani:e,
W hen I tell you Unit thero aro more
than nvo thousand of theso "tickers,
or indicators, you can form some idea
of tho magnitude ol tho business. If
wo give ten men to each "ticker," you
have tho spectacle of fifty thousand
stalwart men slunding thero holdinir

low-eyed and anxious, on tho smiles of

which swell the list to ten thousand. To
this sixty-two thousand you can safely
add two hundred thousand speculators
on the outside. So you have a loial
engaged in this gambling of more than
a quarter of a million.
1 ho stock broker is not ncccssnrilv
a rich man. llo must, of course, huvo
a seot in the board, which costs about
120,000. Hut other than that ho re-
liiires little moro than an ofliio and an
indicator, or "ticker." llo takes the
stock which he buys for you to bis
nana, ana norrows tho money which
ho pays for it. Hut they do not long
remain poor if they havo a fair m-
tronago, lor their commissions aro
enormous, double their old price, and
they have no risks whatovcr. They
rarely deal in stocks themselves, and
they aic careful to have plenty oi "mar
gin lor their own protection.
Of the broker I am bound to sav
that I believe him honest, and not void
of all conscience Resides, I found
him, as a rule, a well read, well travel

It was not so dull now. How inter

threatened with drought, short

pulse was low, feverish and dull. It
was dark like a poem.
1 li ail an interest in the nrnaner t
of the land beyond a sentiment. I
was a part owner in tho ono hundred
thousand miles of railways in America.
From that day forth 1 studied tho
geography of my country as never bo

fourth slory was hued with maps of
American railways. In less t linn a

when and whero I had least expected
it, 1 was to niako a fortune without
eilhor caro or toil. I am perfectly

to no a Conor man.
At last 1 closed out. I had in mi
nium more man eiu.uuu. i had not
invested no many hundred. What

Stocks still advanced. It seemed as
il they would never stop going up.
I sal down and tried for days to do-
cido what to do. Coolly, deliberately,
unu alter us mucit and us mature
thought as I am capable of, 1 went
back lo Wall street with my money. I
had no use for 810,000. 1 had irreat
use for $50,000. I hug myself in satis
faction now, to remember that I
thought not so much of myself as of
my friends at this time. 1 could get
on with that sum well. Hut awnjt out
on tho great gold shoioof the vast
west sea 1 wanted lo build a home a

spot whero their wero woods and cool

The end was only a question of time.
Ono day my broker took mo by tho

is indeed Utopia.
No ono with so little money ever

in the dining saloon and trifled wiih

for tho completion of the artiste's toi

tlelicutely-peuciled eyebrows shone
long, narrow grayish-blue eyes. Her
long prominent aquiline nose gave a
littlo of the liobrow cust to her fueo.
Seen in profilo, a littlo ripplo was no
ticeable that gave it an irregular out
line. The nostrils wero thin, quiver

Her mouth was wide, with thin, sharp

writhed as sho spoke, and when the

wore fully expsed to view. Her chin,
rounded as it was, wos yet strong.
Her clear, whito complexion was ro
liuvcd only by a littlo spot of pink vis

It was a surprise, to most of tho curi

lilted, and shining brilliantly as the
delicate nostrils quivered and a smile
broko over her faco, bringing out tho
fine lines in hor cheeks. Her manner
was essentially French. Turning
quickly Irom one to another of her
companions, now shrugging her shoul

in dainty protest, now liuighing, now

conceuling her cars, but a cloud of

which her tiny feet peeped out, clad

a plum, bluck buuibuziuo dress ; a crepo

tho crimson curtain had been drawn

in sealskin und smiles, stood in the

Tho reports during the week from flub
liu cmi diet alike resnoctiliL' the prose
cution of Iho Land League leaders, and
the policy of tho Irish executive touch
ing the wholo quostion. The latest
accounts say tho government intonds to
indict only six of tho leading agitators,
Mr. Parnell included. It is needless
to remark that Air. Parnell and his
frionds laugh at any legal proceedings
that may bo instituted against them,
wen knowing that no Irish mry will
ever be found to convict them, while
tno j'.ngiisl) government could not ven
ture to remove tho cases to London.
Growing imnationcc is manifested hv
the Irish landlords in regard to what
iney consider to bo hesitation on the
pan of tho government. Tho expec
tation of an important statement by
Mr. Gladstono, on Tuesday a week,
however, at the Guildhall dinner, bus
imposed silence on Iho most ot his col
leagues, and to some extent moderates
tho English impatience, which tho pro
posed prosecutions slightiy assuuge.
Tho Land League leaders continue
lodeny thoir responsibility for violence,
alleging, perhaps truly, lhat it is not
ineinseives hut tho Kibbon lodges which
commit murdurs. This sinister name
basquitosuddenly reappeared. Wheth
er Ribbonnien or not, the wholo popu
lution of Iho disturbed counties are
armed to the teeth. The Land League
meetings are mostly pcaceuble, tho
peasantry concealing their amis,
under advice from tho leaders, and tho
government concealing its police from
icar oi precipitating a collision. A
very small part of the intelligence
reaching tho government at Dublin is
allowed to bo made public ; still less is
known respecting tho intentions of tho
Executive, if intentions they have. Air.

with the danger of the situation, is
hampered by his pledgo not to propose
measures of coercion without submit

that tho government would not bo de

though not expected lo result in con

may be driven to attempt ; but hitherto
individual ministers have manifested
an inviuciblo repugnanco to any meas
ure of efficient repression, llenco no
cabinet meeting is held or summoned,
and no heed is paid lo the swiftly aug
menting unger of tho English people.
Mr. Justin AlcCurthy, M. P., bus
been interviewed concerning tho Irish
situation. His recent adhesion to the
Laud Lcaguo caused at the timo con
siderable surprise, and, therefore, a
distinct expression-of his views bo
comes a mailer of no little interest and
value. Ho says: "I did not join them
before because thoy went rather further
than I thought politic. Ono reason
why 1 did not teel inclined to join the
Land League was because they ap.
peared to go on one remedy and one
only thai is, the legalized expropria
tion of landlords and the graduul con
versation and occupation of land in
Ireland by peasant proprietors. J hat
is a greut schemo, und might, 1 think,
be successful. Hut there is meantime
ample room tor other measures. Tho
League did not soem to recognize the
desirability of other measures, and that
is the reason why up to that timo 1
held aloof. Hut when the leaders of
Iho Lcuguo becamo objocts of govern
ment prosecution I fell soBtrongly op
posed to that systom ot carrying on
political affairs that I thought it tho
duty of every Irishman, if his princi
ples would allow it, to join tho Leaguo
as a demonstration against tho prose
culion ; and so I considereil it u mat
ter of duty to placo myself on record
against unjust attacks, not only on the
part of the government, but of English
public opinion as well.
"Tho prosecutions will bo a totul
fuilnro. Tho Government has nothing
to bring up. 1 do not really believe
that Air. Parnell would bo convicted,
oven by a M idtllesox jury. Wo do not
think lhat Air. Parnell has dono any
thing for which he may bo prosecuted,
or intended to convey any meaning for
which ho may bo prosecuted. I think
ho has conducted his agitation hon
estly. If ho intended lo tako nny
measures approaching to armed resist
ance or rebellion ho would sny so
frankly, and not think of concealing
his purposo. 1 should think thero is
no danger of aeonflict. Air. Parnell is
barrier between Ireland and possible
agrarian insurrection, no still bo-
lievcs in constitutional and parliament
ary agitation and peoplo still believe
in him, and so long as ho is powerful
tho agitation will bo constitutional and
poacolul. If thegovernmentforceslnm
from bis present position I n ally could
not vonture lo say what might happen.
"As lar as uio government is con-
corned thero is only ono thing that
could be more unlikely than the fuiluro
of prosecution and that would bo its
success. As any idea of preventing
the agitation by prosecuting Air. Par-
1 think It almost loo ridiculous
for discussion. Ono immediate effect
will be mode. Mr. Parncll's popular
ity will bo oven moro complete than ot
pescnl. I should say that tho only
soction ol Irish populations with whom
he is not popular, is a certain section
of tho Nationalists who despise consti
tutional ogitation altogether.''
