fHY is it that the average man is worth so much less in
.,money and property than we have a right to expect
him to be? It isn't because he don't make the money, for the
average man is industrious and has earned from $10,000' to
$30,000 in the past ten years. It is because he doesn't give
much serious thought either to his income or his outgo. Seri
Ous thought would teach him the true value of a dollar; then he
would spend carefully and save steadily. That system soon
places any man ahead of his fellows.

History will parallel most things
especially if the,things- are not what
they should be. It is one of the sopnd
est rules of life to withhold one's con
fidence from the man who has discov
ered a new evil. When the evil which
he believes to be unprecedentd and
Iliheard of touches oin society or Oil
any of the inniulbterablo form* of
public taste and predictions, skepti
cism becomes almost a duty. What
ever else you may forget please re
member that during the excavations
of Pompeii large numbers of 'cogged
(lice were happened upon. There is
a good deal of comfort, and a most
salutary moral in that fact.
So that I cannot in the least agree
with Father Vaughn when he tries to
make out that the gambling mania
which is sweeping over English society
is something peculiar to the year 1906,
either in fervor, pervasiveness, or re
sultant harip. There may possible be
details in it that have not occurred be
fore, and could not be paralleled from
the history, let us say, of the eigh
teenth century-the great gambling
age of English annals. Tf so, I am
not aware of them. It is constantly
said, for instance, that the extent to
which girls and young married women
gamble nowadays at bridges is entire
ly novel; but in the files of the Times
for 1797 you will find this illuminat
"At some of our first boarding
schools the fair pupils are now taught
whist and casino''-not, one suspects,
for art's sake alone.
And I rather fancy that all the oth
er features of the brigde mania, which
are roundly denounced as unpreced
ented, might, if examined, be found
to be merely reproductions of bygone
follies. An impartial judgment would
probably go no fuirther lian to say
that gambling inl English society has
now sealed a height unreached since
tile Imlos rollieking days of the latter
eighteenth and the earlier nineteenth
century, that it is certainly more wide
spread today than it has been for the
last 70 years, and that. while individ
uial losses are les,s .ensational than
they used to be, the proportionl of
gamblers to population was never at
any time greater than at this moment.
In s.-nall nonessentials there has of
course, been a certain change. A hun
dred years ago more than one peeress
kept gambling shops openly, and ad
vertised them as such.-Today it would
be more correct to say that. though
many a titled woman's house is a
gambling shop in substance and prae
tice, the fact is not advertised. Short
ly bef'ore Queen Victoria caie to the
throne Crockford's on St. James
street, now the home of the Devon
shire Club, was the gambling center
of t-he metropolis, and as much as
1,000,00 sterling was known to change
hands in a single evening. I do not
think that anything like that would lhe
possib>le now. Gibbon tells us how he
watched Fox lose ?500 an hour for 22
hours on end. That, too, one many
fairly class among the incidents of an
age that has passed.
Tn one of his letters to Horace
Mann, Walpole makes thbe astounding
statement that a loss of ?100,000 at a
single sitting wvas not rare enough to
be surprising. It would certainly
create some talk nowadays. One of
the Braddock sisters gambled away
her whole fortune of ?12,000 ini a
month. Ladies are luckier- to-day in
getting some one to help them out of
such p)redlicaments. There is a well
known tale of four- men who sat down
to whist at Rlaggett's Club one Mon
dlay evening, about 1820, and did not
rise till 11 o'clock on the followving
Wednesday morning, one of them be
ing the richer by $30,000. I have not
heard of such herculean feats being
performed today, anid, indeed, one ha..
only to look at the betting book of
Brook's to realize that the age of he
roic plungers is dead.
For the rest, England is simply liv
ing over again the lift of it.s great
gian dfa thers--and its great-grand
mothers. Society lives to gamble, and
a considerable section of it gambles
to live. The reign of br-idge for the
monment is sup~reme and autocratie.

No one (-are.,s very inuch to what ex
tent men ramble, It is the women
gaiblers who provide the moralist
with his text. Women rarely play
well. and they are invariably bad
Iosers. A woman who reached the
mnsetiline average could easily dress
herself oi her winnings so long a's
she had the sense to play only with
other women. Few of them have, and
the consequences, when a woman owes
a man money, are often calamitous.
A -rood many mien, perhaps not the
least wise in their genreations, refuse
to play with women at all. If that rule
became universal it would probably
le to the advantage of both sexes. As
it is. the only people who benefit by
the irruption of women into the card
room are the pawnbrokers and jewel
lers-just as it was 100 years ago, and
just as it will be 100 years hence.
