40 per cent commission. .
A promoter consists almost entirely
of optimism. He can see a fortune
in a shoe , buckle, and 50 per cent
dividends in a balloon foundry, ikre
than this, his enthusiasm is Infec
tion. -After he has leaned against a
common citizen for a few hours, talk
ing preferred and common, net and
gross profits and stock dividends, the
common citizen becomes an optimist,
too, and gets to seeing automobiles
and trips to Europe in place of Eis
SI 000 bank balance. Thi is one rea
son why ; times , are always so hard
with men of much faith.
A good promoter Is a genius with
figures. Figures can't lie, but they
don't have to when they are working
with a promoter. He can take a car
pet tack factory 30 feet square and
capable of making $30 a month, and
if he can borrow scratch-paper
enough, he can figure with that fac
tory until he has, stretched it into a
40acre plant, which, uses a tanlr cix
cf ink a week to keep the books.
When he has finished his figures, ne
capitalizes them at Sl.000,000 preferT

and goes away a. thousand miles,
where he sells the stock at par. It la

Some promoters get so convincing

Acting Governor Mott-Smith tht his
first, opinion, given a few days ago to
the effect that no provision is made
for dividing the original precincts, is
erroneous. Accordingly he ha,- pre

passed upon by Governor Frear. ;
If he decides to grant the petitions,
proclamations will b$ issued to that

from the decision of the county clerks
and to decide challenges. . All candi
