The Secret of ;ntinr? IClcli.
AS DIHCLOSEU 11 Y SEVERAL MILLIONAIRES.
Two or three of the richest men in this
country have recently given, in sententious
language, the secret of their success and for.
tune. '-Then) is no secret ubt.ut it," tays
Commodoie Vandvrbilt; ' all yon hayo to
do is to attend to your own business and go
ahead except one tiling,'' added the Com
modore, "and that is never to tell what yon
arc going to do till you have dune it" 'i'i.e
millionaire, Difnocrut who has Leon running
for Governor of Pennsylvania, recently gave
his idea on the way to get rich in the re
mark: "Economy and safo investment are
the best means of altiining financial pros
perity." George Law, also, who is a toera.
bly riciimaii. though not, wo suppose, quit.
as rich us Yanderbilt or Asa Packer, re
maiked' in convjsetion a lew days ngo:
"Ther is cotliiug so o.iiy as making money
when you have money to malte ii with; the
only thin,,' is lo s.'e th - crisis and take it a1
its flood;" und, w.ieu further pros.ed lu tel!
tbe secret of bis own success, lie quicklv re
sponded: "Djtci'iniii'ition lo work, and
working." Ttii-se opinions ure certainly
worlh s iinething, and will il jubtless be e i
g'Mly s'.udiod by young men ambitious of
wealth. B it 'h-y kio incomu'ete without a
remark of A. T. .Stewart, who is richer ttui'i
oitUerVand.-rbllt or Asa Packer, and who lol 1
an anxious iuquirer a short time oo that ho

Some wag records the followiug "decition"
under tho internal revenue law: "The latest
decisions of t'ae Cjnimi'sioner of I.ilernal
Revenue cover the following points: Parties
using paper collars niiwt use tbem Irilm t:,eir
original i.ncl.age; that is, from the box in
which they have been purchased; an I a three
CjiiI stamp must bo attached lo each one
v.heu put on. When the oallir Incomes
soiled, and is turned wiih the clean Mtic
out, it must receive another " three cetit
stamp, and mut ulso be conspicuously
stumped with the word ''turned." Bj.':o
when emptied cm not be used a tecond
time, but must bo destroyed in tho room
where emptied, and Iho assessor furnished
wilh a certificate of tho fact. If thrown out
of tho window or carried nut in tue c nil
scuttle or wash tub, such boX"S will be sub
ject lo export duty. Bootblacks aro requi rial
to use) their blacking just as tiiey liud il
when the box is opened, adding nothing to
it whatever. The act of spitting iu the box
and smearing the conlcuts'with tho brush
Constitutes the bootblack a mixer, or rectifier
or manufacturer of blacking, und he nuis'.
pay tho ordinary manufacluioi's license.
Each boot blacked, for which tho sum ol five
cents is paid by tho wearer, must receivu as
the expense of tho boot black, a four and
throe-quarler cent stamp."
