better. Uut somehow I fell into tho no

my parents both died; and you can guess
tlio rest. I soon wasted what little
they left me; aud now it is too late to
combat my old habits. Yes, sir, Idle

Ono of the coniequenoo? of the con
dition of business for tho last year or
moro has beci tho enforcement of eco
nomy; and another has been the reall
zatlon ot the fact that the largo profits
which have been hitherto drawn from
trade are no longer to bo relied upon
with certainty. The two consequences
taken together will balance each others
and though tho scales vibratos with Jer
ky and uncomfortable hitches, thlngi
will eventually find their level. Less
profits In business allow less margin for
expenditure. Less demand for money
for luxury and for tho mere expense ot
living should result eventually In con
tent with smaller profits. The publio
estimate of dollars and cents has been
enlltely on too princely a scale for
some time, .dnd slowly, painfully, but
surely, "contraction" In unnecessary
or useless expenses has been taking
place In all quarters.

and over-Importation, and free scatter

estimate of tlie proper nitoof living ex

complaint has been made, and of which

embarrassment, iut tho truth Is, that
with tho fever over, people complain ot
the abated pulse. Aud It seems to have
been furgotten that tho conditions of
war aro so unnatural that peace Is al
ways to ho desired, cannot corao with
out a disturbance, second only to tho'
calamities of war, Itself.
