MR. SPRIGGING EXPERIMENT,
A STORY WITH A MORAL.
..Where ignorance is bliss 'tis folly to be wise."
?Til bet you ?ive dollars I cao/' said
"And I'll bet you fire dollars you
can't,".said ?, emphasising the last
The moral ei.-d contentious reader
must not be shocked et what he may
consider our gambling proclivities.
Like the little boy who was caught at
school bending and twisting a pin
in "position for a school-mate to sit
upon," *we didn't mean no harm by it,"
The pharse, "I'll bet you five dollars "
was simply a clincher of climax used by
Spriggins and myself when we had ex?
hausted every argument, and each had
failed to convince the other he was.
wrong. And since neither of us, except
in tare instances, ever acknowledged our?
selves io the wrong, we had to bet five
But we never expected to (,fork over"
when we lost. Indeed, we never de?
manded payment when the point in dis
pute was settled, but contented our
eeives io saying, "I told you so."
The point in dispute io the present
instance arose about an item that ap?
peared io the telepraphic columns of the
morning paper. The item read as
"Johu Jones, a convict in "the I
a State's prison has fallen heir to $50,
OCU. Efforts are being made to secure
"lhere,"said I, "yeo see the power
of muiiey. That man was just 89 inno?
cent, just as guilty, before he was worth
fifty thousand dollars as he was after?
wards, but behold what a change
Wealth brings him friends, who make
efforts to secure his pardon! Had he
remained poor, his friends would have
permitted him to rot in prison without
raising a little finger to secure his par?
don. This world is a humbug, Mr.
sprigging, a regular cheat ; in thc
language of a poem ? react ia boyhood,
it's all hollow, hollow, hollow "
"As 1 concluded this spiteful little
?.peech Mr. Sprigging straightened him*
?elf up in the peculiar Way he had when
preparing himse'f "for a combat, and I
knew We would hasen fight, our tongues
being the weapons. Without giving
the argument pro and con, ?twill suffice
to say ("hat the discussion was brought
to au end by Mr. Spriggins proposing
an experiment. He was, be it under?
stood, a man of mea> s ; a business mau
of good business standing, but somewhat
eccentri ., and the proposition he made
was to go around among his friends and
tell them that he was 'dead broke.' "
"If," said he "I do this, and they
freely advance money to start mc in
business, I win. I have no doubt that
1 can borrow all the money that I want
with nothing but ray face for security "
Then, as stated at the outset, we bet
five dollars each on the result; andi
awaited with eagerness the result of the
I, however, ventured to intimate that
if he carried out the experiment, he
might weaken people'? confidence in his
truthfulness ; but this only made him
think I feared the result, and made him
more determined than ever. So the ex?
periment was tried.
Ile went to Mr. Smith, one of his
most intimate friends, and said:
?Smith, I'm a bankrupt.'
'Indeed I' ejaculated Mr. S., greatly
astonished; 'and pray bet has it come
'I-I-' stammered Mr. Spriggins,
hesitatingly, for story . .liing, or, in
plain English, lying, was a new sin with
him, 'I went security for a friend, and
had to pey every dellar of it.'
Too bad, indeed !' was Mr. Smith's
'If I can only borrow a few thousand,
however, to get started^ in business, I
think I can get along very well.'
Mr. Smith thought there would tie ob
difficulty in getting the money. He
would be very glad to advance it, him?
self, but he wa? almost strapped just wt
that time. Mr. Spriggins knew that
this was not the case, and his opinion of
Mr. Smith's undying friendship, under?
went a rapid and radical change.
He saw all of his many friends, and
renewed his request to each in.turn, but
they all happened to be 'short' just at
that time. After a few days of unsuc?
cessful attempts to borrow money, he
humbly ex?fessed he bsd lost his bet
fairly, and that his face was not good
security among his friends.
'I told you so ' said I.
But an unlooked for trouble came up
OD him. He was engaged to a very
accomplished lady. His trust in ber
was unbounded.. He bsd often told me
that, ii ever there was a good, true
woman on earth, it was his intended.
But her father, hearing of the bank?
rupted of the son-in-law that waa to be,
accosted him, saying:
"I understand, Mr. Spriggins, that
you have asst with ?reverse of fortune."
"Yes, air/' replied Spriggins, sheep?
"Of conree, under your altered eir
cumstances, yon cannot expect to marry
my daughter ?"
Here was a new turn io affairs for
?hieb Mr S. iras not prepared. He
thought at first of correcting tbs false?
hood which be himself bad started, bit
the ide? suddenly flashed upon his mind
that there wss a good opportunity for
testing tbs sterling qualities of his
sweetweart This would be t triumph
which would more than comp?nsate for
his defeats in other directions. So
be replied i r r ., -.
"Of course,' sir, I hare s better opin?
ion of your daughter than that abe
promised to be my wife for tbs sake ol
sbariog ny money. Marriage for
