t' ON HOW TO GET RICH.
f I' SInce some of our very rIch men
. ! . 0 have taken to public dIscourse upon
! all sorts of matters their utterances
have somewhat diminished their repu-
tation for Infallible wisdom. It has
been dIscovered that a man may pos
aess great wealth and still fall of
, complete mastery of the science of
government or the principles of po-
11t1cal economy. Nay , It Is evident
that such a man may not even prove
_ a reliable guide to the Inquirer who
p' ! seeks for the , road to wealth.
" , , One of the most didactic of our
vivacious millionaires has recently declared -
dared that riches are within the
reach of every man who wishes to be !
rich. He asserts that there are but I
two requisItes for the acquIsition of
4 wealth-moderate Intelligence and unlimited -
limited Industrr. GIven these , he declares -
clares that any man can get rich.
Which is , of course , entirely false
and misleading , even though it comes
from a gentleman who has piled up
great wealth and Is now engaged In
piling up free libraries. Everyone
knows that Intelligence and Industry
are not the sole essentials to the acquisition -
quisition of riches. Everyone.l news
. of men highly intelligent and thoroughly -
oughly industrious who can scarcely
make a living.
It Is true that intelligence and industry -
dustry are qualities favorable to the . .
attainment of wealth , but it is not
. , true that the possession of those
i ) , qualities , even In the highest degree ,
'p"constltute any assurance of riches.
The money-making faculty 1s a
thing apart from other natural endow-
m nts. An ignorant , illiterate man
" who possesses it will get rich , and
intellectual genius without it will remain -
main poor all his me. Like a gift for
music , it can be cultivated , but it can-
not be acquired.
The sayings of our loquacious millionaires -
t , lIonalres , like the aphorisms in the
copybooks , will not always bear analy-
sis. In the present instance the fal-
, : . slty of the proposition is evident to
everybody , since a vast majority of
the people , though they are intelligent
j and hard working , never acquire so
much as a modest competence , let
alone wealth.-Chicago Record-Her-
. . . WOMEN IN GERMANY.
The movement In Germany to open
t. the doors of the universities to women -
r . en has tailed in its chief purpose ,
: . but it bas led to something. Girls
are to be admitted ' to the classical
schools preparatory to the university
. aa an experiment , but there is a posi-
tive opposition on the part of the government -
" ernment to a classical training for
women. Instead , and "to maintain
. the Ideal position of German women
. f in the home , " the instruction of girls
in the high schools is to be better
adapted to domestic requirements.
That is to say , the ambitious young
: , " women are to be taught the art and
science of cooking and of household
. work generally. The minister of in-
$ tl'uctlon does not seem to be impressed -
( pressed by the arguments In favor of
erudite women , but he has a lively
sense ot the importance to the coun-
try of general good cooklng-Phila-
LIMIT OF LAWYER'S DUTY.
A lawyer has no right to do any-
thing as a lawyer which he would

"No personal accounts , largo or
"mall , wanted here ; we do business
only with large corporations. " This
was the reply the president oC one of
the $25,000,000 Wall street banks gave
to an inquirer as to the minimum de-
posit that institution would accept.
It was a notification that this was distinctly -
tinctly a "wholesale ban . " Such
an answer would not have been made
five years ago. But this Is a new a&e.

THE CZAR'S PRIVATE FORTUNE.
Many newspapers have seriously reproduced -
produced a telegram which appeared
In n Paris journal announcing that
the Emperor Nicholas had presented
his private fortune , amounting to
eighty millions sterling ( $400,000,000) )
to the Russian government for war
purposes. It was added that this huge
sum stands to the credit of the emperor -
or In a bank of a country not friendly
to Russia. Eighty millions would be a
pretty sort of a sum to be held at
call by any bank ; but the whole story
is n romance , and so are all the other .
tales about the emperor's dealings I
with his civil list. The fact is that
the emperor of Russia has no civil
list , and he draws at his discretion on
the imperial treasury , every rouble
of which is supposed to be his prop-
erty and absolutely at his disposal.- I
CURBING TREE BUTCHERS.
It Is satisfactory to note that public
opinion is being aroused on the sub-
ject of the wanton destruction of
shade trees by the servants of tele-
phone , telegraph and electric light
companies , who are sent out to string
wires and who carry the implements
with which to male short work : of a
tree which they deem in the way of
their operations. Such outrages are
usually committed when those able
and willing to protect trees are away
from home. Protests from women
count for very little , and tears for
even less. Against subsequent suits
for damages the companies are well
fortified. If a valuable tree Is once
spoiled what its owner can recover by
a suit at law would not tr uble any

'Tis Derby Day our glorious season
When summer swoons upon the land ,

To pick the winner from the stand.
Each jockey grimly eyes his neighbor ,
And trails him at his saddle belt ,
And urges on the steeds that labor
With the fire und fury or the Celt !
Over fifty thousand here assemble

Shy , piquant maIds will pout and tremble ,

Blithe Highball looms so spruce and
Moharlb stout may snatch the prize ;
Fort hunter looms a keen contelucr-
Rich laughter gleams In DeautY' e'es
What ringing cheers salute the Master ,
Blithe whirlwind of the pampered East :
Staunch Highball neighs and spurns dis-
And looms n. supple splendid beast.
A crafty jockey guides his chances-

The pompous palfrey proudly prances

Time LImps a laggard In his train !
What fierce delight when steeds are mct t-
And grappling on the wind swept plain !
They're at the post-nil grouped together :
'fhey'ro jockeying for the friendly rail :
With hearts us buoyant as a feather ,
LIke chevaliers of Grecian talc.
They hearken to the bugle blowing :
Its aerIal challenge through the air ,
Keen silvery stanzas thinly flowing
Lllto haunting strains from Siren's lair.

As stately sCluadron o'er the hrlne.
