How Daniel Drow Used a Specu
(New York Corresiondeneo Uuffalo Courier.)
Hundreds of stories have been told about
Uncle Daniel' way ol doing btlsslucs?
Here is one I heard in Wall ntrcet some
time ago, that will do as a specimen. Once
wlille sitting in his oflice Drew was ap
proached by a clerical looking personage,
who introduced hlmiolf ai a 3Iethodist
minister, from u town up the Hudson. Un
cle Daniel wanted to know what be could
do for him
"Well, I UiougUt, 3Lr. Drew," said the
parson, "that you might put me in the wuy
of making u little money,"
"Thinkhi' of btiyln' some sheen, eh'.''
"Yes, sir, I've got something saved up,
audifyou will be good enough to tell mo
what Is best to do to lucrease Ityou'llobllge
mo very much,'
"Well, now, It's kind a rlky, yo know,
but p'raps ef yo tried a little Krie"
"Thank you, Mr. Drew, thank you. Now,
will you bo kind enough to tell me a good
place to buyf ou see I am not acquaint
cd down here at all?"
Drew sent htm to ono of his own brokers,
who had orders to hell Krie right along,
and when the parson was leaving tbe good
old man said to him: "Now, don't yo go
and tell anv of the folks ud there that I've
been given' ya auy pints, for 1 don't want
'em to be conilu' down here an' spcclatln'."
Too parson ordered somo Erie, put up
the margin, and went home, und In less
than a week every one of his neighbors who
could command, a thousand dollar hud-
come In New York Md bought Erie in tbe'
samo place, But tbey wero all aurprlsed to

Drew and Und out what was tlio matter.
"Mr. nrew, uiy. dear sir, how la' thja?
You told me Erie was a good thing to buy."
"Well," said Uncle Daulel, with his
Kjyptlin mummy Mnl!, "it liaa turnttl
out pooty bad, tliat'a a fci. !. of course,
I don't want you to lose an y n oncy, Let'

Tlio Uomlnlo nuiicd nli loss, md Drew
told a :lcrk to till a cbeck for the amount.
It was hinde r to the visitor, who became

was leaving the otllcc, L'nclc Diitilcl Hopped

check to the dominie was only a small part
of what he had made out of the dominie's
ruirty years ago the Kubbcr I'orous

Piaster, In various ways.
First, Uy so treating the rubber that
it contains more electricity than form

powerful stimulant, which causes the
pbwter to act immediately and greatly
increases its eftlcacy and usefulness,
making it tlic best remedy known for
colds, rheumatism, lameness of the back
and muscles, kidney complaint, etc.
The manufacturers are pleased to hear
that there is a large class of conscientious
druggists, who, having become con
vinced of the great merit of llenson's
Cupciuu Piaster, unhesitatingly recom
mend it to the public. Of such are E.

The manufacturers also rejrret to learn
that druggists, In some instances, acting
from pecuniary motives, as though the
retail price ol Benson's Capclnc is the

cost to them is somewhat higher, have
used their Influence to persuade custo
