THEY FELL AMONG BROKERS.
A certain man went down irom
Ohio to Chicago, taking with him
And upon reaching the place he
went to an inn and slept soundly,
for his heart was not troubled.
And in the morning he awoke and
look a drink.
Then he went to the olllcc of n
certain man called Broker (because
those who deal with him are event
ually broke) and knocked loudly on
the door thereof.
When suddenly the same flew
open and there came forth at great
sped a small boy with his hand full
of papers on which were certain
strange figures. And the small boy
ran against the man from Ohio with
great force, hitting him below that
place which is called tho belt. Then
speed the small boy swiftly up an
alle', and the man from Ohio would
fain have called to him but could
not, being sore of body and out of
that which is called wind.
So, therefore, went he quickly
into the office of him who was called
Broker, lest another settlement clerk
come suddenly forth and smite him
Being therefore in the place he
did seat himself in a chair of ex
ceeding softness and beauty, and
spat with great speed and precision
at a crack in the floor, so that even
the olfice boy was deceived, and said
unto himself. "This man is a Gran
ger." And when the clock had struck
the eleventh hour" the man called
Broker entered into the oflice and
sat himself down at a desk. Then,
turning to him who had come from
Ohio,, even from the Western Re
serve thereof, he said: "How do?"
For in those days the men of
Chicago were quick of, speech and
chary of words, having too much of
that which is called Business to tar
ry long ip one place or talk with"
many words concerning any subject
unless the same be a horse race,
whereof they would, often dispute
loudly and bet among themselves
great quantities of shekels as to
which shall be ,the fastest, trotter,
Gus Edwards' gelding or John
Lester's bay mare, both being
ste.eds pi exceeding swiftness and
able to compass a ,mile In the time
which is called two-forty .
And when, the Broker had said
,"How do?" to the stranger within
his gates he lighted a cigar, and paid :
"Plave a smoke?"
And they smoked.
Then spake the Broker again,
saying: "Spose we smile?'? And the
man from OJiiio was glad at heart,
for the customs of Chicago were not
like unto those of Cincinnati, in
which place is every man of a frugal
disposition and buyeth not tho
drinks of his neighbor,, or of the
stranger who sitteth within his gates.
So therefore went these two forth
into an alley, at the end of which
were situated two places at which
tho wine-bibbers of the city did
congregate, one Wing called
Cliapuiandgore's , and, i the'- mother
Jakewolford's. And when,.tke Bro
ker and the man from Ohio had
entered one of these places they
found other Brokers who leaned
against the place called Bar. And
to tn em spake a man who hud on his
breast precious stones and whose
hair was anointed and pasted down
in scallops, saying:
And tho Broker answered, saying :
' lS traightf orroeniike. ' '
But the Ohio man thought of the
wifo and children he had left behind
in his own land, and his heart was
softened, and lie said: "Betterpu
talittlesugariumine. ' '
And they drank.
Then spake the Ohio man unto
the Broker, and told him that he
had come from Cincinnati and the
laud beyond. Toledo, and had with
him great riches which he had
gathered after many years of toil,
and that he would buy with it much
wheat, and sell the same much
later in the season when the
price thereof should have risen
greatly. And when he had ceased
speaking the Broker fell upon his
neck and kissed him with the kiss of
peace, saying: " Youcanjustbet
yourswee'tlifewe will make a barrel of
money.." And on the followibg day he went
into the' place where arc to be found
all those who have wheat and corn,
and provisions to sell and began to
buy all the wheat that could be had.
And the price of the same
began to ascend, and the papers
came out saying: " There is a boom
On each day thereafter came this
Broker into the market and bought
of wheat many thousand bushels;
until finally they which are called
Bears, became sore afraid, and one
of them cried out, saying: "Old
Hutchisraisiugallthisheli." But another rebuked him, saying:
" ArmoUr is the man."
And still tho Broker did buy of
the wheat that was offered him, un
til the price went so high that many
became sore afruid, and tremble lost
they be wiped out. But other
IJrokers consoled them saying:
" Don't worry; we will knock tho
Ohio man stiff before settlement
But they wist not vyhat they said.
For the boom, of winch the papers
had each day writ articles, grew in
strength, and when the day of set
tlement came wheat was worth
1.35 per bushel, and there was
great wu'iling and gnashing of teeth,
and many beat their breasts, say
ing: l-.,o, we arc broke."
And it was so.
Then did tho Ohio man smile
with exceeding sweetnebs, and give
unto ones Broker a house and lot and
unto another a fly-back, split second
watch, buying: " I have gained
great riches and am content, and
others from Cincinnati and tho-laud
boyond Toledo have followed mine
example and waxed fat ut the expense
of those who uro called Bears,"
And JtxMhim whose reward had
been a house and Jot hej5aid?"I,iv'
there happily until the end of your
days, and remember that Ohio men
are generous, caring no more for a
dollar than most men do for their
And to him whose reward hud
been the split second watch he also
spoke, sayhlg, " With this you
may lay quietly under the grand
stand when the trotters are being
exercised, and you shall know of a
certainty how quickly each one cm
compass a mile, and can thereby win
much money .betting with Charlio
schwartz, Johulester, Scottvliuu,
Frankiuagiuu, and other, until they
shall cry out, paying: " We are.
And then went the man from
Ohio home again, taking with him
After a little time came other men
from Ohio, saying: " Lo, this is a
boft thing; we will sell wheat,,which
is much too high, and gain great
So they said unto the Brokers:
" Sell wheat, even that which thou
hast not." And tbey sold.'
But still . fell ;iot the price of
wheat, but rather went it up with
exceeding swiftness. And men came
to --the Brokers saying "Put up
And they put up eheerfuly of
their own money, knowing that the
men from Ohio were well fixed, for
asmuch as thev had made great
sums the previous month.
But when the Brokeib were think
ing thus, the men from Ohio became
sore afraid, and gave all they pos
sessed to their wivet, which were
wise women, and salted the same
And when the
up all their own
messengers to the Ohio men for
more. But tho Ohio men only
laughed a hard, dry laugh, like the
laugh of the hyena, and said: " We
have no money,'
Then said tho brokers 'unto' each
other: " We are deceived and be
trayed into the hands of ou-1 ene
mies; we are compassed about with
dangers. Our money' is all in' the
hands of those who would fain
jump on our necks, re 'are toe
