SPECULATION.
The Extent to "Which it is Carried
and the Drain its Excitement
Brings Upon the System.
A Few Words of Warning- and Timely Sng?
gestions to American Business Men.
When Cyrus W. Field returned from Iiis
tour around the world he was perfectly
r.raazed at the extent to which stock specula?
tions had run, and the thousaud and one
-'.'wild cat" sciierr.es which were largely patro?
nized by the too credulous public, even when
there was not thc remotest probability that
they would ever come to a successful com?
pletion. Ile stepped jato Domenico's to dine,
and was pained to see the crowds which
huddled around thc stock indicator, unable
even to eat a meal in peace, so disquieted
were they under the operations of the fever
of speculation. .Mr. Field says he bought !
certain stock for an investment at 1.00 just j
before he- sailed. On his return, finding
it quoted nt the fancy price of 1.64, he sold.
He cu ubi see ny reason why such an advance
should b.avc becu made, and fearing a crash
in the market he disposed of his stock as soo?
as possible. This wild speculative maura
prevails in London and Paris and Berlin, and
in his opinion when the crash conies ii will j
involve the entire commercial world. Con?
servative men and the press see these things '
and warn the people, but many will nbi be !
Stopped so long as they have a penny to spare j
or caa borrow, or until ruin comes irretrieva- I
bly and awfully.
Thc supreme ciTort of our people should be
to cultivate moderation. T'vo things have
united to make the struggle for existence in
this country the most exacting and exciting
found in the world : 1st. Thc ease with
which successful men appear to amass for?
tunes. 2d. The impression their success
makes on those who immigrate helier. As
souu as the intelligent foreigner arrives cn
our shores, be becomes seized v.- i th the desire,
not only af a comfortable subsistence, but of
a fortune, and every ambition and energy of
his being is directed to this one purpose.
This explains wby our business men give so
lillie time to physical recreation, why they
pay so little heed to the essential details of
politics-their bast ness and their families
exhaust their energies, aud they have time,
strength and inclination fur nothing else, ex?
cept when au imminent physical or political
dancer stares them in thc very face and eyes.
The result of al 1 thi> is. that twenty years is tho
limit of a man's business activity and success.
It will take him ordinarily ten years to
accumulate bis first thousand dollars surplus,
and in thc remaining len years, if he be pru?
dent and fcuergcti -, ?ie ma}- amass, more or
less of a fortune. But iu tim majority of
cases, when bc has gotten his fortune, he has
ruined his health, aed linds ?io comfort what
evci in that which he had fondly hoped would
complete thc sum of human happiness for
him.
The exhaustion which follows the inordi?
nate pursuit of wealth, wc are told hy thc
very 'nest of authorities, proceeds from im?
paired digestive organs. The brain has
drawn upou them for ail they were worth so
long that they suddeu?y give way and the
whuie system falls into a miserable collapse.
The organs so susceptible to nervous excite?
ment are the kidneys and liver. The oilices ot'
these organ? are tu discharge poisons which
are collected from ail paris ol'the budy by tile
veins, the kidneys eliminating them in a
liquid form, and the liver transforming part
of them by a chemical process into digestive
fluids, and utilizing the remauider as a pur?
gative. Both these organs demand a large
share of nervous force. If this force is all ex?
hausted hy the brain, they become feeble,
culds settle in them, congestion follows, thc
poison cannot get out of the blood, digestion |
is impaired; the bowels become inactive be- !
cause tiie liver fails to furnish tho natural
cathartic, the bladder becomes le-ufuliy in?
flamed, dropsy comes on ; strange disorders
visit th: head, heart, lungs, and ere the
person Is aware of it, he is a victim of chronic
kidney.and liver disease, and a candidate for
death by Bright's disease of the kidneys.
And liiis is the end o'" ali commercial life
which is pursued at the sacrifice of every other
social, political and physical consideration !
''Ob," exclaims the man of active life, who
-Iocs not feel ns well as he used to, I;J baveu't
any Bright's disease! I'm only used up from
so much work, worry and excitement !:!
Precisely ! You do not feel as well as for?
merly. Your head aches oftener and your
eyesight suddenly proves faulty. The verdict
of a celebrated authority ou the subject is:
'.These symp-oms ?re a sure precursor of
Bright's disease." You have had a recent
and mysterious attack of asthma,-"A sure
precursor ol' Bright's disease." You have
hud a hard cold oa your lungs which you
have been unable to disloge-you have spit
up bloody mucus, - ;:A sure precursor of
Bright's disease." You have felt a uew and
singular sensation of heaviness in the region
of the heart-r*A sure precursor of Bright's
disease." You have felt great depression of
spirits, without any known cause-!iA sure
precursor of Bright's disease." You have
found it suddenly impossible to eat whatever j
and wheuever you wish. Your stomach lias
been very lame, your appetite very feeble, j
your bowel? irregular-"A sure precursor pf
Blight's disease." A mysterious weariness
comes upon von.; your muscular system
seems utterly helpless-"A sure precursor of
Bright's disease." Suppose you "have no
pains in the region of the kidneys cr liver"
this is no indication that you have not
bright's disease. Suppose you "have no al?
bumen or casts," that is no indication that
your kidneys are al! right-that you have uot
Bright's disease.
This, uf course, puts an entirely new phase j
on one of the must vital questions of the day.
We have made a special inquiry and we find
high medical authority for all cf these ad?
ditional conclusions:

by any other malady except consumption.

then as you are now. And ail along

those first skirmishes with this rougi:

lifsscs with which she has routed so
man}' bad dreams, as she leaned above
your restless pillow, have all been on

course she is not so pretty and kissable
as 3*ou are, but if you had done your

Scornful men briug a city into a j
snaie ; but wisc taca turn away wrath, j
xne lireat urain ?peculation
or "Craze," of 1881.
Never before, in this country, ol?
in any other, luis there been anything
at ail comparable to the prient specu?
lation, rather "Gambling," in Wheat,
Corn, and Oats, and in Hog Products.
This gambling spirit has taken posses?
sion of large masses of people, and
extends from the great dealers who
handle or bet on tens of millions of
bushels, down through all ranks, to
thc hotel waiter who puts up his
week's wages as^a "margin" on thc
purchase of a single huudred bushels.
So great is the present rage of this
kind of speculation, that on some
days sales reach tens of millions of
bushels. On one day (Oct. 1) the
"deliveries" of grain, on previous
contracts, were reported at 32,00U,000
bushels in Chicago alone !
Tin's speculation has demoralized
the whole trade. The "bulls'' have
run up prices so high as to nearly
step exports.-On Oct. 1 the "visible
supply" of wheat, that is, wheat in
the elevators and storehouses and in
transit, amounted to 41,203,648 bush?
els. Last year at tho same time there
were only oT,009,7-1-5 bushels, show?
ing more available wheat now than
one year ago, though prices are fully
40 per cent higher. Nearly the same
of corn, I he "visible supply" being
nearer 21,049,170 bushels; last year
28.2S9.298 bushels.
The increased price, produced
iargoly by speculation, is beneficial to
all those producers able to get their
grain to market while these high rates
prevail. But it is deranging almost
all other business very greatly.
Money is drawn in immense sums,
from the banks and from all other
legitimate business, to supply the
.'margins," or to carry I lie stocks
actually purchased and held by specu?
lators.
Exporting being at a stand still,
the inllow of foreign money we should
ii ave, is nearly stopped and European
buyers are seeking cheaper supplies
in all other parts of the world.
The "nigh speculative prices are
greatly diminished the consumption,
und this alone must, ere long, bring
about a decline. The laboring classes
are compelled to pay much higher
rates for their daily food, the advances
mainl v going into the hands of the
speculators. Labor must therefore
advance, and this in turn increases
the cost of manufactures and of all
products of labor.
Of course eveiw speculator, large
and small, expects to sell out before
any great decline shall come, and the
shrewder ones will do so, leaving the
great mass to bear the brunt of thc
loss.
Clear-headed business men now
greatly fear that in the future, per?
haps the near future, a crash will
come that will derange the whole
business of thc country.
To the oft-repeated question from
our readers : "Shall we sell now, or
hold on ?" we can only answer, that
a srood sfeu'eral rule is to sell when
ever reidy, get the money; pay up
debts, and keep in as snug and safe
a condition, as possible. To sell or
hold on for change of prices, is to
speculate on great uncertainty. One
half of the speculators, whu make a
business of studying the prospects
viz., the sellers for future delivery
believe prices will fall. The other
half of them-thc buyers-believe
grain, etc., wilt go higher, from
natural causes, or that they can
"corner"' the supplies, and put up the
rates. The outlook would seem to
bc that, while speculative influences
may sustain or even advance prices
temporarily, there can hardly be a
demand for ail tho grain, etc. Con?
sum?is both at home and abroad will
necessarily curtail their purchases
very materially, and these high rates
will call out supplies from other
sources not usually drawn upon.

Suspicious Symptoms.
A minister who was perhaps not
too careful in his habits was induced
by his friends to take the teetotal
pledge. Jlis health appeared to stil?
ler, and his doctor ordered him to take
one glass of punch daily.
"Oh !" said lie, "1 dare not, Peggy,
my old housekeeper, would tell the
whole parish."
"When do you shave ?" the doctor
asked.
"In the morning."
"Then," said the doctor, "shave at
night; and when Peggy brings you
up your hot water yon can take your
glass of punch just before going to
bed "
The minister afterward appeared
to improve in health and spirits. Tho
ductor met Poggy soon after, and
said,
"I'm glad to hear, Peggy, thal
your master is botter."
"Indeed, sir, he's belier, but his
btaitrs a flee led ; there's something
wrang wi' his mind."

LKXIXGTOX, November 20, 1870.
j My dear Airs.-: . . That Wed
j nesduy night, at half-past seven
j o'clock, after a day, every moment ot'!
which had been tilled with care for j
j others and the closing hours lo tho :
j vestry meeting of tue church, my hus-1
? band came in. We had bee.) waiting ;
I fur him, ami I remarked : '"You haye \
j kept us wailing a long time. Where I
j have you been V: Ile did not reply, j
I atid stood up as if to say grace, but ;
i no sound proceeded hum his lips and '
j he sat down in his chair perfectly up- !
j right and with a sublime look of res-1
igcation on his countenance, but did j
not attempt to reply to our inquiries. !
That look was never to be forgotten, j
and I have no doubt thal he feit then j
his hour had come, although he sub-j
milted lo the doctors, who were im- j
mediately summoned and had not i
even reached their homes from the !
same vestry meeting. His whole de?
meanor during his illness showed one
who had taken leave of earth.
Ile rarely attempted to speak ex- j
ceptin his dreams, and then he wan-1
dered to tiiose dreadful battle field . ?
Once when-urged . him to take |
some medicine, which he always took
with reluctance, he looked ' her and
said, "Tis nu use." but a. wards
took it. When he became so much
better the doctor said: "You must i
soun get out and ride your favorite j
gray." Ile shook his head emphati-j
cally and looked upwards.
Ile slept a great deal, but knew us
all and greeted us with a kindly press?
ure of the hand, loving to have us
around him. For the last forty-eight
hours he seemed qu'le insensible of
our presence, breathed heavily, and
at last quietly sank lo rest, willi one
deep drawn sigh. Oh, what a glori?
ous test was ic store for him-thc
humble consistent Christian, who, not
many weeks before, had said, when
wc were talking of the assurance of
heaven, he wished he could feel that
usstuance, ile will be surprised at
ihe welcome : "Weil done, good and I
faithful servant, enter thou into the
joy of thy Lord.''
Had he been successful instead of
tho "hero of a lost cause" he could
not have been more beloved and
honored.
I am content and would not have i
him back, though 1 must continue my j
weary pilgrimage alone, without thc
support on which I have leaned with
such perfect confidence for more than
thirty years. We shall continue to
make this our home. 1 could not bear
to move into a new house, and my
own Arlington is not open to me.
Believe me always truly and aifec
tionately your friend,

Cut-Worms-Natural History
Remedies, etc..
Thc method which ? have found to
bc tho chea pest and most successful,
is thc following: As the young worms
feed during the autumn upon fall
growing plants of various kinds, it
follows that by clearing entirely any
piece of ground of weeds and other
plants during this time, the worms
must starve. In the garden, tuen,
no part must be allowed to become
weedy after the crops are removed,
for every weed may be nourishing
several Cut-worms. As rapidly as
crops mature, they should be re?
moved, and the stems and rubbish
carted to the compost heap. It may
be well to so arrange thc rotation of
crops that the crop preceding the
planting, which is subject o Cut?
worm depredations, is one wMch can
be removed early from the ground.
After removal of lae crop thc whole
ground should be thoroughly plowed-,
and if plowed again just beTore frosts
sets in, so much tho better. When
it is not possible to remove the cops
before the close of the season, much
good can still be done by clearing otT
the ground and plowing, for although
the young Cut-worms are present in
the ground, the late plowing will dis?
arrange their plans for hibernation,
and thc greater part of them will be
killed by' tho frosts and other hard?
ships of tho winter. On the farm the
samo methods can b' successfully
applied. Ii'a clever fHd is to be
