Till! MEMPHIS APPHEALt THURSDAY, JUNE 3, 18S9.'
A YOONQ MAN WHO PUT HI3 FAITH
ON THE WBONO BIDE,
He Plays a Brief end Brilliant Engage
ment in Memphis Buslnes Circles
and Leaves, After Causing Consider
able Losses to His House.
Comraorcial circles are uot fruitful of
Eows ltoms as a rule
Transactions of magnitude are uiado
and dufcatcd day iu and day out and noth
ing is said of thorn.
Occasionally, however, things como to
tho surfaco that reveal certain phases of
business life, happily unusual, and inter
esting because unusual. One of these
items was accidentally brought to light
ycBtcrday that will serve to point a moral
if not adorn a talo.
This is tho story: A young lrontlemnn
came into Memphis in the latter part of
tho year of Our Lord one thousand eight
hundred and Bovonty-sevcn. lfo was a
ahrcw young fellow, of urhnno manners
and pleasant address. Ho had credentials
with him introducing him as tho author
ized agent of one ol the largest, if not tho
largest cotton house in tho United States,
videlicet: Messrs. Hubbard, Prico & Co.,
of New York. Ho came to' solicit busi
ness for tho above firm in tho matter of
spot and future cotton talcs, and
be soon Locarno a familiar and
interesting object to cotton men. 11 is
name was not Jones. Cotton men who
wanted to try tho fickle goddess cither on
tho long or short siilo of tho market, camo
to the young gentleman to have their or
tw placed through his New York limine.
Everything went along Binoothly and the
young man prospered. His commissions
roso up into connMerablo stuns, and ho
spent his money like rain. It was good
policy to bo liberal; ho made friends by
making the sparkling Intro ol the grains

the surfaco and gleamed Invitingly upon
tho exhilarating ihiutd brought him ens
toincrx. and customers meant money. Ho
was prompt. He was accurate. Ho was u
good counsellor. Ho was a close observer,
Ho could tell as well ns any one how tho
market was going, and, uniting that bis
advico to others w as so good, bo concluded
to try it on his own account. Hn bought
and sold futures and reacd the pro tits or
BiillVred tho loss. Ho had some money
and lived high. lie "trotted in tho fastest
class" among tho young bloods, and
was considered solvent as the bank. His
prodigality coupled with a few reverses
changed all this. He was penniless. He,
bad to keep up appearances or loso bis
btijincss. and to keep up appearances cost
money. To get money was a problem that
rould bo solved but one wav, and that way
was to get IL lie determine'! to take tho
bovino by tho horns and replenish his cx
One good deal would put him In good
shape, nnd one good deal he concluded to
make. The market could only niovo one
of two wavs up or down. If it went up,
as ho thought it would, ho would smui
clear $IiO or SfiiiO. 1K piirchoM-d AtiO

money to rut up tho margin and knew
that his Individual credit would not do, so
bo ordered llio trado iu tb uame of Mr,
Nirtmlooa Hill. Mr. Hill bad good
credit, snd Hubbard, Prici? & Co. would
put up all tho margins Mr, Hill desired
w ithout a word.
Mi-mra. Hubbard, Price & Co. notified
their agent, w hoso name is not Jones, tliut
they wanted a remargin on tho cotton

explained tho Insidious and bewiblering
allurement with which bis young lite had
been surrounded, the cipewive habits bo
had contracted, the fast crowd with which
ho had to keep pace.aiid how In a moment
of desperation, ho bad givo way to a client-
nutty impulso and I"! a largo sum in try
ing to recover a iinuii loss, no grew elo
quent about tho middlo of his lon.r letter
and pleaded niteouxly for rharity. Ho
railed upon Messrs. Hubbard, Price A Co. to
think, oh, think, of their brothers and
Bisters, their father and mother and
aunts and to have mercy on bis ml
lateral and consanguineous kiufolks,
and not disgrace a wlide family runner,
lion by ensuing his delinquencies which
ho wm generous rnough to ronfrwa, fully
and free I v. humbly and abiecllv: the
while (tuning his breast and exclaiming
lugubriously: "Men Culpa, Mea Maxima

if he had to forfeit his soul's iiiheritance
in order to obtain something m g,.tiaiiie

would bold upon him just tho ghoul

the crabbed theories of crusty plulowiphcr
av who claim that when tho Iwij is brut
and tho tree inclined there is no rhang,
inzlt Ho accepted his diarliarn from
the serrice of tho company anJ they
cmntuil him tiino.
Tho youni man retsilvod to turn over a
new leaf. Ho ha been turning them
over ever since but somehow the credit is
uniformly on tho wronj side of eneli. llo
went to New York nnd made a gxl salary
but whenever a pay il.iy stuiek him
an.l.Uiin. it knocked him sillr. As
eaih iiinnlh's aliiwti.l was banded
' over to him bis evil LTiiins stoQ.1 by to
lead him to where the wine w.is red and
slruinr diink was raging. llo iuan
dered his rubitance In riotous living, and
in Irving to make his "system" win out

Correspondence ol The Appeal.
Wallace, Miss., June 9. At 2
o'clock this morning a fire broke out in
the Bev. 0. 0. Oroor's cookhouso, and
spread rapidly from room to room until
every ono was in flames, hia family nar
rowly escaping with their lives. Unfortu
nately ho was soiling goods, and was using
ono room of the building for a stoioroom,
and in this business he had invested al
most everything he possessed. Ho is not
a very healthy, stout man, and was trying
to raiso atul educate bis children in this
way. It was very affecting tosoo the smok
ing ruins and tho fruits ol Mr. Greer's toil
for years in ashes, and he,with his family,
in such deop distress. In tho midst of all
this, bo.wover, a number of friends gath
ered around him to upcuk words of com
fort and plodgo assistauco. They will help
him, and that with a lavish hand. The
amount of the loss Is not yet known, but
it is supposed to bo not less than SI. 000.
Any kind of aid from his friends will bo
thankfully received by him.
