Lie sold As freely on the principle we updo a of come , go easy he had but to select goods to any amount and they were promptly the invoice rendered and a note at four or is months taken ill pay ment. And its he was treated so he treated his customers and they found their Way to his notions room from All Art of the country tar and near. W hat a splendid business to was do ing Sale mounted upward at the Rati of seventy eighty and one Hundred thousand dollars a year and his profit nned from ten to forty percent. Wig gins we getting Rich no fat that his head swam an he looked from the Midden height he had obtained. Twenty five Jar cent Clear profit annually that a the altering unction which he Laid to his soul Ami not very far in the Golden Dis Tance he saw himself a merchant Prince. Having on time and Selling on time Are All very Well if the Selling time is Shorter than the buying. The reverse is generally the Case. It was of with j Oil wigging. Lie bought at four ii and eight Mouths and sold at six eight nine mid twelve months. Of course w Hen his own note became due lie had to meet them by discounts. The two Banks in which he kept his accounts checking from one Nul Dick Mitiu in the other a great Many time Ever Day to indicate Active Businow jut As the doctor with limited practice rides hurriedly about the streets to indicate the existence of num Erous pressing Calls Tho two Banks gave him a certain Lino of discount about ten cents on the Dollar of his wants. The ninety Jer cent was raised 4on Tho Street that is through Bill brokers who represented private Money lenders of unscrupulous Hank officers. On this ninety per cent Wiggins paid at Tho rate of one to two and a half per cent a month Accord ing the estimated value of paper or col lateral which he had to Otter. So attain West on swimmingly wit i or. Joel Wiggins. Lie wan getting Rich fast Liam Over fist a he sometimes ele Gantly expressed it. Llis Bills receivable Ami Stock of goods showed always a Large Surplusage Over Bills payable. With a comfortable feeling consequent upon the fact that Money a being so rapidly accumulated or. Wiggins and mrs. Wiggins and Ari Ninita Jane wig gins tin wife and oldest daughter Natu rally enough concluded that it was time to live in a style better agreeing with their position. So the modest comfortable House in Glutton Wood Street at three Hundred and fifty dollars a year a Given up and a stylish affair beyond inroad Street rented at eight Hundred per an num. Now the incr increase of rent from three Hundred and fitly to eight Hundred a year would not have been to serious a matter if the affair would have stopped at the simple removal from Litton Wood Street to the went and. Lint that was out of the duration. The single item of new furniture was Twenty live Hundred Dollar and the annual increase of expenditure exclusive of rent one thousand. Mrs. Wiggins and Araminta Jane More Over attempted the fashionable Aud this Cost was something not a dime less thai another thousand dollars for shawls silk lace and jewelry Bills mount up wonder fully Hist / no a thousand dollars is be Low the Mark. It Cost a Tritle to be fashionable next a Carriage and next a country House. They came naturally. A cottage and Garden overlooking the Delaware. That was the Climax everything went on charmingly mrs Wiggins and Araminta Jane were at Newport Hist summer Bent on making a sensation and or. Wiggins was in Phila Delphia taking care of his payments which were heavy. Money All at onco grew a Little tight. Hanks were Unac comm dating and or. Wiggins found himself obliged to submit to sundry Ter Rible hard shaves in order to raise the w ind. Be Day his Bill broker could get nothing on the paper he had to offer. So he was forced into thin Street where on undoubted collateral he raised two thousand dollars for two Days at one per cent a Day. On Tiu next Day Money was a Little tighter lie had five thousand dollars to pay. Llo got through Only at a terrible sacrifice. On the next Day following lie raised three thousand More to lift Matur ing notes but not enough to meet the two thousand covered by collateral on which he was paying one per cent a Day. That arrangement was continued for two Days longer. Or. Wiggins began to feel a Little in easy. Plump on to one of his despond ing tits after three o clock hours came a letter from mrs. Wiggins asking for five Hundred dollars. Or. Wiggins crushed the letter passionately muttering five Hundred devils it was unit Iahlo and Unco Jugal but he was in trouble and excited. On the following Day or. Wiggins sent his wife one Hundred and fifty Dol Lar with directions to pay Oil her Bills and return with Araminta Jane immediately. Hot she and Araminta Jane demurred and scolded Hui soundly for i niggardly response to their demand for Money. They did not moan to Incavo till the close of the reason. But or. Wig gins was in Earnest and lie made them comprehend in another letter. That brought Tacui Oil by the next boat for new York. Joel Wiggins a getting frightened. The Banks threw him out altogether and How at the mercy of the Havers. But few country merchant had been in and few of them brought Money. Sale Wen Light against an unusually Large Stock of goods which could not be forced on the Market and told for half their value. I country House had Cost him ten thou Sand Dollar lie mortgaged it for five. Tried a second mortgage for three thou hand More but no one bid. It must be sold then matter were pressing. Or. Wiggins announced the fact at Home like one to expected a tribe. It cause mrs. Wiggins. And Araminta Jane were astounded and indignant. Never said or. Wiggins. Never cried Araminta Jane. What will people say at this coming Down f queried or. Wiggin. It will kill me sobbed Araminta Jane who had caught a Beautiful Beau at Newport and was expecting an offer of marriage every Day. They la nay that Joel Wiggins a been living too fast was answered bluntly and they la say the truth i d no business with a country House yet a while you la put Down the Carriage next 1 suppose Naid Ara Mutinta Jane indignantly not really meaning to be understood As in dread of that ctr curio measure but rather intending her words As a cutting rebuke. Just so replied or. Wiggins who now the ice wait broken at Tho Edge of the Stream Felt his courage Rise into a desperate Resolution to go through. Just so my dear the Carriage will have to be put Down and mrs. Wiggins and Araminta Jane must walk or take six Penny rides in Tho omnibus. Necessity knows no we will not Doc no the Acene that followed. Mrs. Wiggins was at first indignant but after a while die calmed Down and hearkened a Little to reason. Ara Uinta Jane indulged in a fit of Lotter ies from which she did not recover for some hours. But or. Joel Wiggins was inexorable. On the next Day the country House we advertised for mile. On the next came the startling announcement of the failure of the Ohio life and Trust com Pany. And then but Tho disastrous event which followed Are of too recent occurrence to require a word of detail. Joel Wiggins was borne Down in theget end crash a fact that will in no Way or to the Reader. Mrs. Wiggins wan inconsolable for a time Ara Uinta Jane in despair. Of Tho disgrace of coming Down it seemed a if it would kill them. The cat Iago went of course and Vith it the Calvd and banded Coachman. The Folly Lud gone that far. Tito broken notion merchant who had kept his Carriage and boasted a Conn try Home called together his creditors and made an exhibit of his affairs. Alas the column of did not foot up a Large jus the column of liabilities by Many thousands of dollars. The discount and interest account showed a fearful balance on the wrong Side. Thirty thousand Dol Lars had been paid for Tho use of Money in less than four years or. Wiggins owed eighty three thousand dollars and his nominal assets were sixty four so much for the Rich merchant who had set up his Carriage and sent his wife and daughter to see High life Aud upend Money at Saratoga and Newport he represents a class and is rather a favourable specimen for or. Wiggins really meant to be honest but Tho inflation of Tho times led him into error. The creditors of Wiggins was not hard on him. They agreed to accept forty cents on a Dollar taking his notes at six twelve eighteen and Twenty four months in settlement. A few wanted to close him up. They were outraged at the country House and Tho Carriage part of Tho Busi Ness but the majority pitied poor wig gins who was deeply humiliated and al most ready to shoot himself in despair. To must give up this House said or. Wiggins on returning Homo from the meeting of his creditors. Lies Oke like a Man in Earnest. Mrs Wiggins started and thu slice Ara Uinta Jane turned Pale. Your creditors Havo not been so exact ing so cruel Are you nothing but selfish fools exclaimed or. Wiggins his Wrath leaping Over All barriers. Hani cruel i they have been Kinder than 1 had dared to Hopo for of then to will not be forced to mov from Here robbed Araminta Jane. It would kill me. 1 would never survive the humiliation. You must not think of it i a it is thought of and decided said the Resolute or. Wiggins. The Bubble has burst and i am now a bankrupt. To went up like a rocket and now to Are coming Down like the stick 4ljut to will economise said mrs. Wig gins. 1 know you will for necessity knows no Law was a sword. Well Send away Tho waiter and let Tho chamber maid attend Tho door and Tabic the Cook can attend Tho door and Well wait on ourselves at Tho table. It won t be the first time in our lira. I for our shall Feci relieved. It al ays annoys me to have a waiter gaping at to while i l Oor Araminta Juno was in despair. We can t yet All our furniture into a smaller House said mrs. Wiggins. Very Tnie replied or. Wiggins i be thought of that. Well have a Sale and get lid of the costly lumber that sur rounds us. Plainer furniture will suit better our reduced style of living and in honorable a Nile of disgrace disgrace would you kill inc sir of and an Ninta Jane confronted her Resolute papa with a countenance and attitude of a tragedy Enne. You Don t seem to have common sense or common decency enough to live in this world so the sooner you Are killed off the better coldly replied or. Wiggins. I shall have the tale and Riak the cons quench is and to did according to i word. The Rod Flag in Leas than a week was unfurled from one of the windows of the handsome wot end House and the humbled and disconsolate Wiggins a re tired to a meaner Abod in a smaller Street the furniture of wich corresponded ranch better with the condition of a Man who could pay Only fifty Ceuta on a Dol Lar. Wiggins himself was honest at heart i but the Wiggin ses in a mama were weak vain and pretentious. The suddenness with which they fell from an extreme height stunned and blinded them and it was some time before a new and better life begun to vitalize their actions. It did however thanks to the Resolute con duct of the head. There is a lesson in Tho fall of the Wiggin ses and a Good Many lessons in Tho Way Tioy managed to get along after their fall. Or. Everett s address. Tho dedication of Tho free l Tiplic Library building in Liston was carried out on now year s Day in a most satisfactory manner. Addresses were made by lion. Robert c. Winthrop mayor Hico and lion. Edward Everett. To make room for the following extracts from or. Ever Ett s address i am aware that there is still floating about in the Community a vague Reju Dico against what is called Book learning. One sometime hears doubts expressed of the Utility of Public libraries opinions that they Are rather ornamental than no Cussary or useful and the fact that our time honoured City has subsisted More than two centuries without one is a sufficient proof that until within a very few years their importance has not been practically Felt. There is perhaps even now a disposition to claim some Superior Ity for what is Cal cd practical knowledge knowledge gained by observation and experience which most certainly the trustees would not disparage and a kind of satisfaction Felt in holding up the example of self taught men in supposed contradistinction from those who have got their knowledge from books and no name perhaps is so frequently mentioned in this connection As that of Krenklis who because he had scarce any school education and never went to College has been hastily set Down As a Brilliant exam ple to show Tho i Utility of Book learning. It has been quoted to inc in this Way within Turco Days. Now or. Mayor i need not Tell von that there never was n greater mistake in Point of fact. A thirst for books which he spared no pains to allay is the first marked trait in the character of Frank Lin his Success throughout the Early period of his Lite can to directly traced to the use he made of them and his very first important movement for the Benefit of his fellow men was to found a Public Library which still flourishes one of the most considerable in the country. Frank Lin not a lok Man whoever labors under that delusion shows that somebody also is not a Book Man at least so far As concerns Tho 1 biography of our illustrious townsman. To happen to have a Little information on that subject in a Book written by Franklin himself. Iio there give a very different account of himself Mill i would no any one who entertains the idea to which 1 am alluding at what period of Franklin s Carcer he supposes this taste for books began to be manifested by him How soon he ceased to be a self formed Man f perhaps after to had struggled through the years youth Ful poverty escaped to Philadelphia set up in business As a Printer and began to have a Little Money in his pocket. I need not Tell you sir that it was earlier than that. Was it then while to was the Clever apprentice to his brother the editor of a journal and wrote articles for its columns in a disguised hand and tucked them under the office door enjoying the exquisite Delight of setting up his own Unno Tymous Artick waa it then at the Ngo of Tii teen or sixteen that this fondness for Reading under the stimulus of Boyish authorship disclosed tit Elf earlier than that. Well then at the grammar school and master Brownwell s writing school which to attended from eight to ton for there Arol is who How a fondness for Reading even at a tender age wan Little Benjamin taste for books developed while yet at school f earlier than that. Hear his own words which you will permit me to read from that exquisite piece of autobiography to which 1 have already alluded from my infancy i was passionately fond of read ing and All Tho Money that came into my hands was Laid out in purchasing books. I was very fond of voyages. My first acquisition was Bunyan s works in separate Little volumes. I afterwards sold them to enable me to buy r. Burton s historical collections. They were Small Chapman s books and cheap forty volumes in 11. My father s Little Library consisted Cli idly of books in polemic divinity Mot of which i read. I have often regretted and this is a sentence that might be in scribed on the lofty cornices of these no ble columns that at a time when i had such n thirst for knowl do Mora proper books had not alien in my Way. There was among them Plutarch s lira which i read abundantly and i still think that time spent to great advantage. There we Alto a Book of Defoe s called an essay on projects and another of or. Mather called an essay to do Good which did what air f for i am now going to Giro you in Franklin s own words they carry with them the justification of ovary Dollar expended in raising these Walla Tho original secret of his illustrious a Rock Trio effect produced by Reading these two Little Boole of Defoe and Cotton Mather f they perhaps gave the a turn of thinking which had an in to Lucico on some of Tho principal future events in my life yes sir in Tho read ing of those books was Tho Acorn that sprouted into that magnificent Oak Thyra was the Fountain drop which a fairy might sip from a Buttercup from which has flowed Tho Missouri and Mississippi Tho Broad deep River of Franklin s Fame winding its Way through Tho lapse of Ages and destined to flow on till it shall be in gulped in the Ocean of eternity. From his infancy sir passionately fond of Reading nay with the appetite of a Vul Ture with Tho digestion of an Ostrich at tacking Tho great folios on polemic dig nity in his father s Library. Not a Dull boy either sir not a precocious Little Book worm fond of play does t dislike a Little mischief sometimes Asho tells us med the other boys into scraps but in his intervals of play in his Leisure moments up in Tho lonely Garret when the rest of Tho family were asleep holding coup Csc in his childhood with the grave old Uon conformist s Howe and Owen and Max Tor communing with the Auster est lords of thought Tho demigods of Pur i Tanum non Ihm Elk Ati Moui Lafoai. Franklin not a Book Man i Why lie goes on to Tell us that it was this Book ish inclination which it length determined his lather to make him a Printer Nga Imit his own inclination which wait fur the sea and when to had thus by constraint become a Printer i great Consolation was As he says that i now had a Cess to better books. An acquaintance with Tho apprentices of booksellers Ena bled to sometimes to borrow a Small one. Which i was careful to return soon and clean. Often i sat up in my chamber Reading Tho greatest part of Tho night when Tho Book was borrowed in the eve Ning and to to returned in Tho morning then to Tnador Tho acquaintance of or. Matthew Adams an ingenious sensible Man who had a pretty collection of books. I of frequented the i inting office took notice of the Bright Little apprentice and very kindly proposed to lend inc such books As i chose to read having taken to a vegetable diet at the age of sixteen he poise add his brother to allow him in Cash halt the Price of his Board lived on potatoes and Hasty pudding soon found that he could save oven Hall of that Little allowance which could not have exceeded two and sixpence a week lawful Money and this poor Little Economy was an additional fund for buying books what would Tho poor under fed boy who was glad to buy books on the savings of his potato diet have said could he have a i free Access to a Hall like this stored As it soon will a with its priceless treasures further sir while work no As a Journeyman in England he Uyi i made the acquaintance of one William Wilcox a bookseller Whoso shop was next door lie had an immense collection of second hand some what i suppose Liko our Friend Burnham in Cornhill circulating libraries were not then in use but we agreed that on certain reasonable terms which i have now forgotten i might take read and re turn any of his works. This i esteemed a great advantage arid i made As much um3 of it As i could finally sir n i Havo i ready mid Franklin s tint important movement for the Pood of i fellow men was the of in Dupion of the Public Library in Philadel phia. At i instance the member of a Little Clab to which he belonged trades men and mechanics of narrow meant threw into common Stock the few books which belonged to them. A subscription was then obtained from fifty Young men principally tradesmen of two pounds each and ten shillings per annul and with this Little fund they began. The books were imported the Library was opened one Day in Tho week Lor lending them to the subscribers on their promis Sory notes to pay double the value if not duly Tim was the Mother by Franklin of All the North american subscription libraries now so numerous. It has become a great thing itself and continually goes on increasing. These libraries Hare improved the general conversation of the americans made the of Nunn tradesmen and Farmers As Intel Lige Ift As most gentlemen from other countries and perhaps have contributed in some degree to the Stan so generally a Sec throughout the colonies in defence of their those Are the words of Franklin or. Major which 1 read from his own Book. No sir if there is one Leaton More than another directly Deducible from the life of Franklin it a the Cloae connect Iota of thoroughly practical and useful Lite and career with boo la libraries and read ing. If Thero is a thing on Earth which would Havo gladdened his heart would that he could Havo anticipated it a would to Tho knowledge that his Nativo City in two generations after his death would found a Library like this to give to Tho rising generation and to the lovers of knowledge that Access to books of which he so much Felt the want. And could it be granted to him even now to return to his Nativo City which dwelt in his sections to the close of his life hi4frat visit would be to the Centre of the ancient burial ground where in after life he dutifully placed a Marble slab on Tho Tavo of his parents his second visit would be to the spot in milk Street where be waa born his third to the Corner of Union Street and Llanover Street where be passed his childhood in a House still standing bin fourth visit would be to the site of Tho Freo grammar school House where As he says in his will to received a is first instruction in literature and which is now adorned with the statue which a grateful posterity has dedicated to his memory and his last and longest would be to this Noble Lylall where you Are making provision for an ample Supply of that Reading of which from Bis infancy he was passionately fond. In concluding his clue together. It was Well known that the Squire of troll Odall the Vot in that precinct and that Bis better half controlled him so that it was All important to get on the right Side of her. We had agreed not to elect Neer with the Squire while a staid with him but i did not think Thia forbade me to do my beat with his family. So i Rose about Day break tha next morning and thinking that 1 should make friends with Tho mistreat of the Bouse by bringing water to Cook the break last i took a bucket and started off for the Spring.
