There ore croakers in every coun
try, always boding its ruin. Such
nn one lived in Philadelphia a per
son of note, an elderly man, with a
wiss look, and a very grave manner
of speaking. His name was Samuel
Mickle. This gentleman, a stranger
to me, stopped mc one day at n7
door and asked mc if I was the
jonng man who had lately opened a
new printing house. Being an
sweicd in the affirmative, he said he
was sorry for me, because it was an
expensive undertaking and the ex
pense would be lost: for Philadel
phia was a sinking place, the people
already half bankrupts, or near be
ing so; all the appearances of the
contrary, such as new buildings and
the rise of rents, being to his cer
tain knowledge fallacious, for they
were in fact among the things that
would ruin us. Then he gave mi
such a detail of misfortunes now ex
isting, or that were soon to exist,
that he left me half melancholy. Had
I known him before I engaged m
thi3 business, prQbably I never
should have done it. This person
continued to live in this decaying
place, ana to declaim in the same
ifitit vefnetnn tew matitr ar in
buy a house there, because all was
going to destruction, and at last
had the pleasure of seeing him give
five times as much for one as he
might have bought it for when he
first began croaking. Benjamin

Ship subsidies we must have; ship

from tho following editorial expres

of tlit country, the Chicago Dally
Under the topic "Itovlvlng Ameri

torlall): "President Taft'B advocacy of mild'

no offset to needless expense of ma

"If efforts equal to those put forth
to get subsidies out of tho national
treasury wcro directed to overcoming
by wise legislation tho fundamental
causes of tho decay of tho American
merchant marine it is likely that
substantial pi ogress would come
without much delay.
"President Taft should consider
well this side ot the question. SInco

the reminder that while the wise

Women who are well do not have the blues, neither arc'

it has made many remarkable cuies of female ills after all
