“ II he can get through in two or three years, I shall certainly be in favor of letting him go on. Times have been rather Lard and business dull. Hut everything looks encouraging now.”
“ I don’t believe in extension*. Mr. Highland. The surest way, when a man gets into difficulties, is to wind him up, and secure what you can. Ten chances to one, if you let him go, you lose every cent.”
“ I have granted extensions in several instances, Mr. Elder,” replied his companion, “and obtained, eventually, my whole claim, except in a single case ”

An hour previous Mr. Carlton, about whom they had been conversing, sat ■ with his family, a w.fe and three daughters, at the breakfast table. Ile tried to converse in his u>ual cheerful man- 1 nor. but too heavy a weight was upon his heart. I here had come a crisis in his affairs, which he feared woald not be passed without ruin tojhimself.

Hut the! disaster could not stop here It would i extend even to the sanctuary of homo.
Oo the day previous he had called on a few of his creditors, and asked of them an extension. It this were not j glen it would be«i rn possible for him to keep on longer than a few weeks.
