Ask a successful business man whether he would, ad vise young man starting in hfr to follow his line of business, and almost invariably ho will reply: "Certainly and will show you how that particular business is about the last thing on earth that offers induce- ments of any kind to a young man er any other kind of a man. No matter how a job a man holds, no matter how much pay he gets, he will find some fault with that particular job and show the queationer what an easy time of u other man has. Once upon a time wai a young fellow who was messenger in a bank. He continually bewailed kit lot, saying that he had to go out into the rain and mow, wbilt the otinr employes of the concern .ould itay tnaide. Soon ke wat raoted to a job iniide.

Of all the employes of the bank, lie alone was weighed dowft with responsibility. He had no time for exercise of mj kind. How he wished he was the messenger. That was really the onlj good job in the bank. The messen- ger, care free, young, buoyant, and had nothing to do but stroll around town. The messenger didn't terns a load on his shoulders. All this time the friends of bank cashier were envying him. He had gone ahead with great rapidity; he was earning a large salary, and all he had to do was to get down to the bank at nine o'clock and stay there until three, sit in a fine office, and by a word make or break a busi- ness house. Beeidw, a bank job ia an easy job, anyway. The hours are short, the pay is good, the work is dean, and a bank makes use of any every eicuja to gire to employes a holiday. !Who wouldn't be a Creek-Tuesday. February February 2nd; i Wedccsdav.

Had thac granted, Astor wouM probably litre marn.t4inc4 himself at As- toria, dwpite the apathy or treachery of-his British partners. If tkers htd been a of imagination and courage in the House in those man like Rooaflrdt or like reasonable measurr of itcognition wotild have been granted. If they been''ganted, what would, been the outcome? With large resources, Ms base, and his Rus- sian affiliations, it is extremely probable that Astor would have shut the Hudson's bay and the northwest companies from all trade west of the Rocky mountains; that coatrorersy with England over the title to rht Ore-on eegion, then including everything up to the Alaska line, which erod- ed in 1846 by the compromise that gave us all the territory below niuth parallel, would hare been arerted; the present British Columbia and Yukon, which were not valued highly by anybody in those days, wouK: have been cure by the peaceable process of occupation and expansion and then when California came into our hands in 1S48, and when Mus-.; handed over Alaska to us in 4867, we should have had an unbroken line from San Diego up to Point Barrow, in the Arctic ocean. In event, restricted to the east side of the Rockies, as she would have bwn. Canada would probably long ago hare asked for annexation; the -roa lakes and Hudson bay would have been near the center of our rerritosy: and the United States' place upon the world's map, and the Uni'et' States' influence in the (large as each is at this would have much greater. DEATH OF LORD Mefo a Tpug By JUDGE BENJAMIN "i have in mind a young man whom w may call Jimmie. He was what you ma} call a 'tough lad; the chief of the Ai' gang, and quite an adept' thief irt small way. I thought I saw some ing traits in his character, and instead n" sending him away-.and making him a con firmed criminal I talked ro him in a.wa; that I thought he could apprecise and un- derstand, and finally made him sec in trusting him I was risking myself. "He realized that it would HO- be dual' if he 'threw me ilovrru' Then I let him go on probation. Under our sys- tem he was expected to report to me in person eTsry two weeks. Jimmie did so, and the reports from ether Bourcea were all favorable. Our agents leaned that Jimmie'a old comrades had sneered when he refused to go back to the petty thicring and pockerpicking. And this is -what the you'Mul gang leader told his old as- sociates "On de leTel, now, dat jv.dge give me a square deal aDJ I'm not goiiv to f. him down. He's treated me -white, atr if I goes back TCT tg'in de judge'll lose hi? job.' "'-Tinrmie is now a foreman 'La a car facturing plant." i f London, Dec.
