HE WS BOUND TO WIN
FAILURES DID NOT DISTURB HIM,
NOR DID "ARGUMENTS.

A Man Who Belter to Luck, Good and
Bad, Tells a Story of a Partner Who

Series of 'xtlsaittrons financial Failures.
'TheWnWho'lias It inim to win will
generally wih,": said a New Yorker in an
uptown restaurant the other day. "Some
times I thinl, it's best to get all your bad
luck in a hear. Pile jt on one bit after the
other, and then when the good luck comes
you have a clear way and are in good train
ing for a strong run. .
"I was out west Jlfteen years ago when I
met a young Yellow who interested me a
great deal. He couldn't have been over
twenty-etghtinen, fent he had seen a good
deal of life that is, life out there. 1 heard
that he had feeen in the sheep raising busi
ness a couple of years before, but had lost
bis whole business bad luck, every one
aid. I had taken out a few thousand dol
lars with which 1 wanted and expected to
make a fortune in a marvelously short
time. As I knew nothing at all about
sheep and every one maid that what he
didn't know about sheep was not worth
knowing, I thought it would be a good
Idea to strike a bargain with him. So I
went to him.
"He was wowing in a railroad machine
shop at the time, earning I think it was
$3.75 a day, for before he came of age he
had learned this trade just to fall back on,
he explained. 'And,' he added, with a
twinkle in his eye; 'I've fallen back on it
cftfiMT than I expected.'
' "When I explained to him my idea about
the sheep he told me about his life. His
mother had died and left him about $3,000.
Whea he came of age he took the money
and put it aU in sheep. He lost it For a
time he 'fired' on a locomotive and then
went back to his trade. He saved money,
and Invested it in a sawmill scheme with
some others. The mill burned down it
hadn't made money, any way and he went
back to his trade again. Then he worked
his way to Dead wood, made tip his mind
there was nothing there for him and got
back into Wyoming. He had in Lis life
learned how to telegraph.
"He had a smart head and a pleasing
manner and got two jobs at once tele
graph operator and manager of the drug
store in a little town, running the business
end of the drug store while its owner, n
physician, looked after the drug part,
which was a trifle compared with the
fancy goods, paints, oils and various other
things, including coal! He established
his telegraph office in the drug store and
all went merrily until he had saved $1,500.
With that he went out and hunted up a
partner with the same amount of capital.
They went to Oah. He bought sheep and
Vent broke' againl
" 'Now,' he said to me with a pleasant
laugh, you see that I haven't mude just
what you might call a startling success
out of sheep. But I know there is money
in it. I know why I have failed before
and I may fail again; But I have been
saving seventy-five dollars a month to go
Into the business once more, and if after
what I have told you you would like to try
me, I am your man. So we tried it, and
in due course of time we "went broke,' or
"I had come to admire this man im
mensely. He was strightforward, bright,
witty and extremely able, and I felt more
sorry for him than I did for myself.
" 'A ,' I said, when the game was
over, the trouble with you is sheep. You'd
made a fortune at anything else in the
world, because you have the brains and
the pertinacity to do it, but as long as you
tick to sheep you will be a poor man. It's
your fate. Come, now, swear off on sheep
with me. I am going back east and make
my money slowly.'; fJ.
"'Just you wait,' ha-said, laughing
cheerfully. " 'I'll hit it yet.
"Well, the other day a big, full waisted,
brown bearded man, walked into my office.
I knew him at a glance, and I was so glad
to see him that I jumped half way across
" "How are you.' I cried. 'How have you
been doing? Tell ma all about yourself.'
And then he told me in a modest way that
he had built half a town, and had come
- east to get some ideas on plumbing and
" 'I'll get the contract for the water
works,' he said, 'if I can get hold of a real
live man who will go out with me. I've
already completed the dicker for opening a
plumbing shop. I also want you to find
me a smart, wide awake young man who
wants to be a bank cashier. Have got the
bank, and we've got the president I'm
that fellow, but we want a cashier.
" 'Well, A ,' I said, 'I told you that
you could do it. I knew it was in you.
I'm glad you quit the sheep finally.
" 'Sheep I' cried A .with a great laugh.
Why, man, I have one of tile finest herds
in the west, and the finest plant without
an exception anywhere. If you want to
see a sheep ranch, that beats the world
come out and see iid. Sheep t, man, it was
sheep that did all the rest.'
" 'And then,' added the New Yorker,
while I congratulated him with all my
heart I felt a little iaintness to think what
. I might have had if I had stuck it out
with him.' "New York Tribune.

THE SINGING IN GOD'S ACRE.
Out yonder in the tioonlieht, wherein God's
Go angels walking to and fro, singing tbeir
Their radiant wings aire folded and their eves
are bended low.
As they sing among the beds whereon the
flowers delight t ) grow:
"Sleep, oh, sleep!
The Shepherd gua.-deth His sheep!
Fast speedeth the ni?ht away,
Soon cometh the glorious day;
Sleep, weary ones, while ye may
Sleep, oh, sleep!"
The flowers within G id's Acre see that fair
and wod(Stms sis ht.
And hear the angels Hinging to the sleepers
through the nigh ;
And, lo! throughout .be hours of day those
gentle flowers prt long
The music of the angel in that tender slroa-
"Sleep, oh, sleepl
The Shepherd loveth His sheep!
He that guardeth His flock the beet
Hath folded them to 1 lis loving breast;
So, sleep ye now and lake your rest
Sleep, oh, sleep!"
From angel and from flower the years have
learned that soothing song.
And with its heavenly music speed the days
and nights along:
So, through all time, w hose flight the Shep
herd's vigils glorify,
God's Acre slumbereUi in the grace of that
"Sleep, oh, sleep!
The Shepherd loveth His sheep!
Fast speedeth the nigl t away.
Soon cometh the glorious day;
Sleep, weary ones, while ye may
Sleep, oh, sleep!"
Eugene Field in Lt dies' Home Journal.
When the King Laughed.
One of the three occasions on which
Philip IV of Spain laughed was as follows
Philip's first wife, Isabella of Bourbon,
died in 1G45, and the nt xt year he married
the Austrian Archduchess Maria Anna.
This princess unders ood Spanish, but
very imperfectly. Passing on her way to
the capital through a certain town which
was distinguished for its silk manufac
tures, she was presented by the inhabitants
with a few dozen silk Bookings. Heedless
of the queen's presence, the master of cere
monies snatched the parcel out of the
hands of the town councilors, flung it on
the ground and exclaimed in a rage:
"Are you not aware that the queens of
Spain are not supposed to have any legs?"
The queen, with her imperfect knowl
edge of Spauish, here bt gan to weep, called
for her father confessor, Reithnrdt, and
told him that she mean; to return to Aus
tria. If she had knovn that in order to
become queen of Spain it was necessary to
have one's limbs cut oC" she would rather
have died in Germany than undergo the
I operation in Spain. When this incident
was related to the king he burst into loud
laughter before thewhoieassembled court.
The present may be s.id to be distinctly
a collecting age; it is abo very perceptibly
a book loving one. Now, the study of
book plates is a humble, but by no means
useless or even closely restricted, branch
of bibliophily, and the collecting of ex
libris is a pursuit which it were wrong to
compare, as men have lightly done, to the
"hoarding of postage staaips."
The book plate has in interest which
covers three and three-q larters centuries,
and, whether ancient o- modern, it may
have one or all of the following heads of
value to the antiquarian, the artist, the
litterateur: It may bear a date, and thus
help to fix a definite taste in graving and
ornamentation; it may appear as a record
of some well known person in the past; it
may offer special information to the herald
and genealogist; it may be a remarkably
handsome thing in itself. London Satur
Bow Bees Are Shipped.
Most beekeepers- use for ' purposes of '
transportation an ingenious wooden box
with a sliding cover, invented by Dr. Ben
ton, an expert attached to the department
of agriculture. It is four inches long and
is divided into three communicating com
partments. The compartment at one end
is filled with soft candy for the insects to
feed upon; the one at the other end has
holes for ventilation, while the middle
compartment is a dark chamber for the oc
cupants to crawl into when it is cold. I
In such a receptacle bees can be sent
around the world, and will reach their des-
tiuation in good health and ready to fly to
the nearest flowers for -honey. Each box
will hold a queen and from twelve to twen
ty workers. Before mailing it is secured
with rubber bands 6r put in a strong envel
ope. Cor. New Orleans Times-Democrat.
