uipu price, uence ineir losses win
The general effect of the recent col
lapse of the Chicago "wheat corner" Is
thus stated by a journal of that city":
" The country is full of wheat that
has been prepared for market, and can
not be sent forward. Tor the next two.
or three days the wheat already loaded

be no buyers; and the poor " fellows in
the country, who haTe bought this wheat
from the farmers, will lose most heavi
ly.' Shipments are very seldom made
direct by the farmer. He brings his
sram to ,the country station by the
wagon load at a time, and It Is bought
by a man whose business it Is to "buy up
until lie can obtain enough, not for one
car load, but for half a dozen or strain.
This operator generally; protects' him
self by selling ahead, agreeing to de
liver so much during a month, and con
tracting with the farmer to furnish' him
much grain. A great deal of'the
grain that is now being' forwarded to
market belongs'to these men,- who haTe
igliprice . in juiinrp. anil
Hany of the country operators may
compelled to retire gracefully from
business. 'As a class they are even as
essential to the farmer in helping him
market his grain as the commission
men in this city. They are more so in
winter, when these commission men
take large orders to send car loads of

tions passing around Chicago by the va
rious cut-offs without even entering the
limits of the city,
Many of tbo commercial men in this
city will.be aflected as badly as the
country operators referred to. They
have sold this grain for the parties in
country, and 'will be expected to
stand between their principals and the
parties for whom they "sold. In many
cases their transactions are covered by
deposits of margins, but Ihls Is far from
being universally the case, and, even
where margins have been deposited, it
very seldom that enough money is
posted to cover such a big drop as, has
occurre1 i'mg yesterday and the pre
It is doubtless true that the commis
sion men, as a class, have suffered more
from, this corner than they did by the
great fire, as their business losses on
occasion chiefly consisted of loss

which their accounts were kept.
Inconvenience of Wealth.
'n viewing William B. Astor's' pres
ent residence In Lafayette .Place, I am
forcibly reminded either of an asylum
a jail. The occupant has lorig been
troubled with the fear of robbery,
which may not be far from a streak of
lunacy. He 'probably carries but little
money in his pocket, and I doubt if he
any je welry; still less bonds, in his
house. The "cracksmen" are not apt to
such places, for they reason correct
ly from men's habits. But Mr. Astor
converted his house.into a place of
defense, .which, as I said, suggests to.a
stranger that it may be a jail or lunatic
asjlum. The basement windows are
protected by heavy gratings.. These,
however, are common In first-class
houses. The porch is of heavy free
stone, and this is the only relief to the
plain brick front, whose breadth and
height additionally suggest the idea of
asylum. The parlors on the first
lloor, as I am told have sliding shutters
iron, and these can be closed at night
then be opened by day In sucli a
manner as to be utterly concealed. The
second story windows have gratings;
of half length, as In the case with
nunneries, hutrcachlng from top to bot
tom. These will offcctually defeat the
entrance of any one who might climb a
gutter or reach tills height iu any man
ner. The third story is unprotected,
In case a robber should descend Inl
balloon, an entrance could easily be
I make this suggestion in or
that the lunatic capitalist may at
once adopt suitable precaution. iV. 1'.
A throe-year old nephew of my fi lend
had just finished his usual prayer at bis
mother's knee, when she said : "Now,
Willie, pray lor grandfather and grand
mother." He did as directed. "And
now for all the cousins.'- Ills petition
went up for his class. "And iiow.WUlic,

Wearied out, perhaps by the length of
exercises, he exclaimed : "Mamma,

The "Fat Sheep."
Some twenty-five years ago, when I

occasion one evening to visit a social no
meetlng, in the chnrch occasions.- One
after another gave in his or her expe
rience. After a time In humble circum

iuate, squeaking voice, rose to give a
piece of his experience, which was done
the following manner- we

On takiu? his seat, the nastor in ers

"My dear brother, you must remem-

Whereupon the little man arose again,
and in answer, said In a very loud tone of
"Ycs.and if I'd been afatono, you'd er.
have found me long ago."
The effect upon the audience can be
better imagined than described.

The Lion's Ride.
When a lion wishes to have a giraffe
for bis dinner, he Is obliged to be very
careful how he goes to market. Giraffes
are not cheap articles of diet, even for
a lion, and an attempt to get a meal of
that kind of meat always costs him
great deal of trouble, and sometimes
costs him his life. Of course, the lion
slips up very quietly toward the giraffe.
He always does that, -no matter what
his prey may be, but ln this case it is
necessary to be very careful indeed, for
if he springs and misses the giraffe, the
great beast may get a kick at him be
fore be has time to recover himself, and
a kick from a giraffe, whose hind legs
fly out like sledge hammers, will make
even a lion feel "considerable shuck op
But even after the lion has safe-
ly landed himself on the giraffe's back,
his dinner is not ready yet. The gi
raffe is a large and powerful animal,
and away he rushes, as fast a3 his long,
awkward legs can carry him, and that

and the hyenas come yelling after, ho

in ring by attaching to the ring in his
nose two strong wire ropes and twenty-
four stalwart men were deemed suffici
ent to control the beast. He submitted
quietly to be led from the cage, but on
entering the arena he suddenly threw
up his head and plunging madly about
to the right and left, breaking loose
from the men, dashed forward through
the tents. His first victim was John
Glllem, a canvas-man, whom he knock

another canvas-man striking him in the

one side of the seats, dislocating the
shoulder of one of the employees and
breaking the arm of a spectator. Sun

Forepaugh's den of performing ani

with his head, bringing it down with a
crash upon the cages of the tiger and
leopard, but not breaking them so as to
allow the animals to escape. Dashing
into the museum tent, he smashed the
curiosities, stampeded all the people in
the vicinity, and rushed out through

A Rhinoceros on a Rampage. Real Love---What it Is.
In Old and iVew occurs the following
comments on this universal subject.
Many suppose that they love their
husbands, when, unfortunately, they
have not the beginning of an idea what
love is. Let me explain to you, my
dear lady. Loving to be admired by a
man, loving to be admired by a man,
loving to be petted by him, is not lov
ing a man. All these may be when a
woman has no power of loving at all;
they may be simply because she loves
herself, and loves to be flattered, praised
and caressed, or coaxed as a cat likes to
be coaxed and stroked, and fed with
cream and have a warm corner.
But all this Is not love. It may exist,
to be sure, where there is love; it gen
erally does. Love, my dear ladies, is
self-sacrifice; it is life out of self ln
another. Its every essence is the pre
ferring of the ease, the wishes of an
other to one's own, for the love we bear
them. Love is giving, not receiving.
Love is not a sheet of blotting paper or
a sponge, sucking in everything to it
self; it Is an out-springing fountain
giving from Itself. Love's motto has
been dropped in this world as a choice
gem of great price, by the loveliest, the
fairest, the purest, the strongest of
lovers that ever trod this mortal earth,
of whom it is recorded that he said,
"It Is more blessed to give than to re
ceive." Xow In love there is ten receivers to
one giver. There are ten persons this
world who like to beloved, where there
Is one who knows how to love. That,
oh, my dear ladles, is a nooier attain
ment than all your French music ana
dancing. You may loso the power of It
by smothering It under eany seir-maui-gence.
But living just as you are all wanting
to live living to bo pitied, to be flat
tered, to be admired, to be praised, to
have your own way, and to do that
which Is only easy and agreeable you,
may lose the power of loving nobly and
worthily, and become a mere blotting
paper all your life.
Hypocrites feel more concern about
theoplnion their neighbors entertain ot
than honest men do. The truthful can
afford to be either understood or misun
derstood, because they have for comfort,
a consciousness of their own right In
