a sentimentalist-I believe that "business is business" all around.
I'm happy in my work; my digestion and nerves are good. Life is beautiful, and richly worth living.
I've saved a little money, by the way-maybe I can quit and rest after a while, if I want to.
Won't that be fine?
Yes, things do look different--at forty.-Brains.

The ability to talk well is all right in its place, but you must get inside the office before it is of any use.
"Nowadays when a wants to see the president of a large business house he seldom sees even the secretary.
“His card is sent in by an office boy. Now, the secretary does not know what the man looks like; all he has to judge from is the card.
“Usually the card tells the whole story. Most of them are cheap affairs, 'Mr. Smith, with Brown-Green Paint Company,' or something like that. The chances are the secretary does not feel in the mood to see a paint man and passes out word to call again later.
“But that chap who just went out is dif. ferent. He sent in a plain calling card of the proper size, engraved in old English script. It was the best that money could buy.
“When I got the card I had never heard the name before, but I did not dare turn him down. I sent for him and then it was all his.
"He started a flow of fine English and in a short time I had him in the president's room. He is pretty sure of landing a big order, 1 believe. It is an investment of a few dollars, but I tell you it pays high interest."-New York Sun.

Here's a Fertile Field For You Mr. Advertiser! !
JHILE you've been getting after the residents of the cities and towns of the Province of
Quebec, haven't you overlooked the French Canadian farmers? g French Canadian farm
ers were never so prosperous as they are today. They have good farms, they live well and comfortably, and they want and can pay for what you have to sell. g They form the backbone of the Province of Quebec, and they're a class of likely buyers of your commodity that are well worth cultivating. Y There are mighty few farmers in the Province of Quebec who do not keep posted on matters relating to agriculture and the general news of the day. And the medium by which these facts are made known to them is "THE WEEKLY LA Patrie" (formerly "LE CULTIVATEUR,” which has been published since 1871). Every article published in this paper is of the greatest interest to every French Canadian farmer and every feature which has made "LE CULTIVATEUR" so popular will be retained. 9 When you consider that there are 130,158 families in the Province of Quebec, depending upon the soil for their living, and that "THE WEEKLY LA PATRIE” goes into 35,000 of these homes, you will appreciate its value as an advertising medium. 9 It reaches the farmer who is constantly on the lookout to better his condition and add to the comforts of his home. g Mr. Advertiser! are you going to assist him in this by telling him through "The Weekly LA PATRIE” about the goods you have to sell? g Because, Mr. Advertiser, you will find a ready sale for your commodity, in a paper that goes to people who are keenly anxious to possess your goods, if they only knew about them, g Write us to-day for any further information that you may need about "THE WEEKLY LA PATRIE and LE CULTIVATEUR." “LA PATRIE" PUBLISHING COMPANY, Limited

The Sucker Industry A mining stock swindle, with newspaper advertising accessories, has just been laid bare
the arrest in Goldfield, Nev., of the secretary of the chief swindler. The latter is Dr. J. Grant Lyman, of New York, credited with obtaining $300,000 in thirty days. Salt Lake City, Chicago, Milwaukee and New York have been the victims of a fictitious market on a stock promoted by Lyman. Lyman went to Goldfield about two months
the Greenwater copper boom had just started, and over the name of the Union Securities Company announced the incorporation of the Boston Greenwater Copper Company.
These announcements he made in the Goldfield prints and in advertisements which appeared in the large cities. At the time he telegraphed to mining stock brokers throughout the Union offering them stock in the corporation at 371/2 cents per share on their guarantee that they would not dispose of same at less than
45. He shipped large blocks of stock to confederates in New York, Chicago, Salt Lake City and San Francisco, and instructed them to offer the stock to brokers at 50 cents per share. Coincidentally he telegraphed each and every one of the brokers, offering them 60 cents a share for all the Boston Greenwater Copper they could deliver. The brokers eagerly gobbled up all the Boston Greenwater offered at 50, then they attached the stock to drafts and shipped it to the Union Securities Company here in Gold. field. As fast as the stock arrived payment was refused on one ground or another.
Lyman was formerly the owner of a racing stable in New York, He was expelled from the New York Stock Exchange in 1899 after the exposure of his connection with the International Zinc swindle. He placed large lines of advertising of the Union Securities Company through the Tillman agency of Pitts. burg. He owes newspapers upward of $150,000. The mining stock was sold in hundreds of cities but had no merit. It is estimated that Lyman got away with $300,000.—Printers' Ink.
