The title of "King of Wall Street" was con
ferred ujioii jiio in the sumptuous outer office
of u broker in tho street at U10 close of the
last pp'-iiilciitial camuaiKiL Tlie ticker had
struikotr Ladil's time, 2:15 p. m., and the
t Ux-k quotations w hieh follow ed carried prices
up to :i point tliat, afteralongsummer'shard
work-, and related nightmares of utter ruin,
made mo ct en with tlio Wair street game.
When a certain stock touched a certain
eiglitii, my elnborato cnlculations demon
htratol that 1 would bo just whero I started
in tli jiivviou-. May, and that if I sold out I
eouM leave Wall btrect even.
liETWEEX TUB WHEELS.
How I had longed for that moment no pen
could tell I was short of ono stock that was
sailing up like, a balloon, and I was long of
another that was dropping like lead. The
genius that turned tho wheel of fortimo
wined to 1 doing double duty, and I waa
muglit Utwcen the wheels, with my feel
Im.iuiiI to one and my hands to tho other.
Eeiy time tho littlo wheel of tajio went
around I got an extra wrench. To ald to
the pUsures of existence, the put-and-call
sullen, would bring in the most delicate till
bits of gossip, indicating that Jay Gould was
gon-g to put my short ttock tip higher than it
hail ever ln-tn lieforo, uild that my long
stock WLsgoin to the bow-wows, where it
would only ha vo a sjieculativo value. This
ine.iiit that the stock I thought was selling
too high at !, Jny Gould thought cheap at
W.1; and the coal shares, that seemed to 1110
Mow tiieir intrinsic valuo at 47, were
doomed to sink to 10 or thereabouts, to lead
u sickly toadstool existence.
Kind friends gathered around mo one
gloomj afternoon and advised mo earnestly
to close out just w hero I was, to loso nil tliat
I had mt tip as margins, and to give my note
to the broker for half as much more, and
come again some other day to try my luck. I
loin luiled that I wns a member of a congres
of lools. Ijinji mill sickly as I wns, I felt
enough sclf-coiiliilenro to itsist acting uion
the nih ice. I had seen ono gix-en navigator
!n these tn-uclierous seas yield graciously to
Hicii niivico, and Had utterwurd noteil how,
uliuihe fit out and settled his losses, his
stocks 1 lettered and sisjh reacheil a jKiint
whi'ivhe could have sated himself. Then I
had heard the kind friends who hail induced
him to sKio olf tho slate, to try again some
other day, cackle a er his foolishness in run
iiingaway at theliist sign of trouble. Had
it not lieen for this exjierience 1 verily beliei o
tli.it I would hate lieen mortgaged Unlay to
the Wall street broker. Tho kind friends
meant no harm. In the excitement of specu
lation, nd ice in grave money matters is the
theajiest thing iir Wall street It adds
interest to the game mid costs nothing.
So I held on like grim death to a deceased
colored crsou. I was on duty hy the ticker
Ihohoursn day, watching for tho combina
tion of figures that was to land me high ami
dry. Sometimes the long shock would con
x alt-sec, and then relo again, xrhilo the
slioit stuck seemed tt bo the henlUiiest thing
(Hi the list Hy and by the skies cleared, and

Iheso happy conditions could lie charmed into
contiinuince I would lie x ictor.

"Good morning. Deacon : von walk off as
Bjiry as a boy, for all you are so old."
'Why, law bless you. I can't lielji it ; lean
see so well with my new- spectacles it appears
to put new life in me. I actually reel twenty
yearn xounger, and I have La J them only a
short time. You fee, I did not buy when Dr.
lost llrst came to Wichita ; 1 thought I would
jutt wait and let some others try. I hail paid
out so much money for six-ctsclea, and my eyes
were getting poorer and poorer all the time,
that 1 had about despaired of eer getting any
thing that would stay the dreadful loss or sight.
Itut when I came to see and talk with my neigh
bora, and with people from other parU of the
country who had used lr. Yot's Improved
lenses (some of them for xears), I concluded I
would try It once more, and I am frank to con
fess they are far ahead of my expectations.
Oh, yes, it's a bard country on ejeslght. All
this western prairie country is much harder on
on the ejes than the eastern states, and come to
think of it. it Is as much out of place to try to
use the old stjle or spectacles here lu Kansas as
It would be to try to farm with the old style of
farming tools, aud. sir, 1 don't hesitate to i-jij-that
the man that wont go to Dr. Yojt and be
fitted with a pair of his improved lenses ought
10 nave nis seii-uinuer anil lmproxeti plows
taken from lilm. and be compelled to cut his
grain with tho old hand sickle and plow with
the woodeu-monldboard plow."
It is just as Important to use lmnroed lerincs
properly fitted, in order to save eyesight, as It
Is to use the seir-bindcr to save grain iu this
Xoll.-e talking, nothing short or Dr. Yost's
Improved spectacles w ill tare the Ir-Ion in this
