Tho valuo of a reputation for smart
ncss is questionable A smart man is
often successful, for it is necessary, in
thoso keen competitive times, to be
snarp-wittcd, and to possess sound
business capabilities ; but though ho
may acquire tho wealth ho covets, he
Irequontly docs bo at tho Bacrilico of
his solf respect and tho estoem ol his
fellows. Tho word "smart," us we
Americans uso it, implies moro than
tho mere quality of briskness and pre
cision. If smart mon woro thoso who
by straightforward, honoBt dealing
builded up a fortuno and a fuir lame,
they would bo tho most desirablo of
this world's citizens ; but we imply by
tho term thoso selfish, unscrupulous
individuals who never hesituto to tuko
a mcun advantage in order to got tbo
best of a bargain, and who will seldom
hesitato at any trickery wheroby they
cun reucn a uesirea end. now olton
do we hear of a cruol and rascally ac
tion described as "smart," and how
olton is "a smart man" liltlo bettor
p r,..,llt ynl-.rno. . iMIiarl.
men know every wealc point in law,
and thoy are very curelul not to com
mit themselves to uny thing which
would render thorn amenable tojusticc;
yet thoy aro nono tho less blameworthy.
In this very carefulness consists much
ot their smartness.
A litllo while sineo an author sub
mitted to a London publishor a manu
script, with ft view to publication.
Tbe two were unublo to agreo as to
terms, and tho publisher relusod to re
turn the manuscripts. The author
threatened legal proceedings, where
upon tbo man of paper and of print
replied, "It yon tulK ot proceedings
and dumugos I'll send your manu
scripts to America and have the book
produced thuro, and then where will
tho valuo of your copyright be t" This
was, no doubt, an exceedingly smart
suggestion, and tbo law gave him pow
er to carry it out, but it would bo
difficult to approve of its honesty. A
theatrical managor, a low months ago,
accepted and producod play which
was praised by the critics, whoso ver
dict was confirmed by tbo public. Un
der an agreement, the author was to
rocoivo so much per night for tbo first
fifty nights and then a reduced nightly
sum altorwards. After tho first wook,
the managor heard that tbo author of
tho pioco was in ill-health and was re
lying on tho proceeds of this piece ; so
ho thought ho would do a smart thing.
11 o threatened to withdraw-the pioco
(although it was an acknowledged
succuss) unless the author would con
sent to tuko, from that timo lorward,
tho reduced nightly feo. In order to
put on further pressure ho detained
tho money due fiir tho performances
ol the past woek. Had thoro boon ft
sign of "bud business" the author
would have at onco .consonted, but
there was nono, and ho replied' that ho
must bold them to the agreement.
Tho matter was referred to a third
party, and tho would-ho smart mana
ger overstepped himself by admitting,
in correspondence, that he intended to
bring tho poor author to bis torms,
lor, wroto be, "ho is in hole ill, and
hard up." Vet thoro aro mon who
will pronounce this shameful proceed
ing as a very "smart movo on tho
part of ft manager. Tho cases cited
bore aro not imaginary: tbey aro
woll-known in literary circles and
have been constantly discussed. Hap
pily, in professional life such instances
aro raro, but in the commercial world
they aro of duily occurrence. Ilusi
ness, which is now givon np to an al
most incredible extent to speculative
gambling, causes smart men to carry
on theirsmart practices with impunity.
1 hey novor sluy to consider what ruin
they aro bringing on othors, ao long
us thoy carry their point. Their ar
gument is that they must livo, and, in
order to do so, they must be smart
and cannot alford to havo conscien
tious scruples. - lS'overthelesa thoro
aro commercial qualities that In tho
long run ure safer to trust to for the
successful issue of enterprises. It is
possible to make a profit without
cheating your neighbor out of his just
due ; and in tho end tho men who find
themselves rich rind respectable are
those who havo conducted thoir bnsi
n oss upon tho rules of justico and of
truth, ralhor than upon tho principle
of smartness. Jn all relationships, po
litical, professional, commercial, and
social, tuir-dcnling mon consider tbe
wishes and noccsKities of others; but
such considerations, aa a rulo, are for
eign to "smart" men. It is for tis to
choose whether we shall bo honest or
smart. If wo are smart, let u bo
honestly so. Easy Jlnun.

to quito a business in tno Indian Ter

ducted is givon by an exchange : Ear
ly in fcliruury Messrs. Ltugerty and
Judy, ol St. Louis, put in an appear
ance at Atoka, Indian Territory, and
at once commenced iu work ot put
ting up pens there an! at the roost,
which is about 100 miles distant. The
pens are sixteen feet rquare and about
ten foot high. UirdB, as rapidly as
captured, are housod in too woods un
til the wagons arrivo to convoy them
to Atoka, when they are transferred
to tho pens at thut pluru. At Atoka
thoy are well kopt and aro frosh for
snipmoni when ordorcd. Thcie are
twonty pens there and lorty-fvo at
the roost As each will hold about
1,000 birds it will bo seen thcro are
accommodations for a vast numier of
tho feathered delicacies. Mcssri. Hug

sand coops that will hold six dozen
pigeons euch. Those aro used br con

railway station for shipment. Sixtocn

"Walnut timber it becoming so scarco
ns to give furniture manufacturers in
all parts of tbe country much troublo.
Tho Northwestern Lumberman slntes
that in consequence of the rapid de
crease in ine supply ol this wood some
grades of it havo, in several of the lead
ing markets of the country, advanced at
least twelve dollars a thousand in the
past year. Dealers, it says, are thick
in tho walnut regions, eagerly, and
evon ravenously, picking up the groon
lumber, and in somo instances unscru
pulous buyors have offered mill men an
advance ot from five to ten dollars a
thousand for their cut if they will ro
pudiato tho contracts which hold it.
Tho increasing scarcity of walnut sooms
to have attracted the attention of tho
dealers generally only within ayearor
two. A few, howevor, moro toresiL'ht-
od than their fellows, anticipated tho
famine, and havo prepared for it. One
concern for several years past bought
freely, and to come into competition
with it, other dealors who thought it
wus uuying rocKicssiy, woro forced
either to pay moro than current rates
or lesvo tho field. Asa result this con
cern has piles of walnut throughout
tho Southern Central States, and it is
holding them in reserve for tho lirao
when tbe demand will bo so groat and
tho supply so inadequate that tlicy
will realizo handsomely on their invest
ment. Thcro has boon somo tulk
among furniture men of mahogany tak
ing tho place of walnut, but this the
Lumberman thinks is impossible, tho
supply being not half sufficient. It
says :
"1 bo impossibility of procuring ma
hogany in desirablo quantities may bo
bcitor understood when it is known
that it is bocoming moro difficult to
got ovory year, as the logs havo to bo
brought from further inland. Another
drawback to tho business is that cvory
vessol owner is not willing to put his
vessels into tho mahogany carrying
business. Many of tho coasts ot tho
countries whence it comes are wanting
in goou naroors, and as tho vessels are
obliged to anchor a milo or so from
shore and having the logs ruftod to
thorn, tho cyclones that sweep over
that latitudo aro liablo to destroy them,
loiift year wo road of tho destruction
ol soveral vessels ongaged in that trado,
and as there are but comparatively few
in it, it shows that the busiuess is a
risky one."
It is probable that when tho wulnul
s all gone other nativo woods will tako
ts place. Sovoral varieties, such as
rod oak, birch, beech and ovon black
ash, which hove heretofore rocoivod
attention, are now being used to a con
siderablo extent. Many pooplo who
own lands that aro unfit for cultivation
would do wisely to plant thorn in wal
nut trees. Land so utilizod would, in
few years, not only bo a sourco of
much profit, but during tbo interron-
uroaits and tend to induce a holler ITg
ulatod rainfall. That walnut can bo
successfully cultivated in this country
there is no doubt. Near Onoidu, Mis
souri, aro a numbor of thrifty walnut
groves. The troos woro obtained Irom
tho soed. The groves range from Ion
to lifteon years old, and tho trcos are
from twenty to lorty feet high and
from four to eight inches in diumeter.
n somo parts ol Kansas walnut troos
iuvo grown filtcen feet high from tho
seed in six years. In Wisconsin a gen
tleman who had ft pioco of land unfit
for ordinary cultivation planted it in
walnut, and in twenty. thrco years tbo
trocs were from sixtoen to twonty
inchos in diamotor. Several hundred
acres of such trocs would now bo worth
a fortuno. -Many a landlord farmer
might make his lund profitable by sot
