and you must l->e in as fashionable a

borrow. If you can't borrow, make a false
entry or subtract here and there a bill from
a bundle of bank bill?. You will only have to
make the deception a little'while. In a few
months or in a year or two you can make it
all right. Nobody will be hurt by ir. nobody
will be the wiser. You yourself will not be

thousand men have been slaughtered for
time and slaughtered for etemi-y.
Sugpose you borrow. There is nothing
wrong about borrowing monc-v. There is
hardly*a man trbo ha? not sometimes borrowed
money. Vast estates have been buili
A Art: iv ?;.*t tberft are two
kinds of borrowed money: Money borrowed
for tie purpose of starting or keeping up
legitimate enterprise and c-zpcn?eau?l money
borrowed to get that which you can do without.
The firs: is rigLit. the other is wrc;;g.
If you have money enough of your own to
buy a ocat, however plair, ?nd then you borrow
money for a dandy's outfit, you have
taken the first revolution of tae wheel down

be well, Borrow for the luxuries, that tips
your prospects over in the -wrong direction.
The Bible distinctly says the borrower is
servant of the lender. It is a bad state 01
things when you hare to go down seme other
street to escape meeting some cue when. you
owe. If young men knew what is the despotism:
cf being in deb:, mora cf then would
keep out of it. What did debt do fcr Lord
5acon: with a ir.ir.-_L lowering abo?e the centuries?
It induced him to take bribes and
convict himself as a criminal before all ages.
What did debt do for Walter See*.:, broken
hearted at AbbotsfordV Kept him truing
until ha hand gave out in paralysis. to keep
the sherltf avav from his pictures and statuary.
Better for him i: he had minded the
nwsim which he had chiseled over the firepiaoe
at Abbotsfcrd. "Waste not, van: not."
The trouble i?, my friends, that people do
not understand the ethics cf going in deb:,
and that if you purchase goods wiih no expectation
of paying for them or go into debts
which you cannot msec you steal just so much
money. If I go into a grocer's store and I
buy sugars sal coffees and meats with no
capacity to pay for them and no intention of
paying for them, I am more dishonest than
if I go into the store, and. when the grocer's
face is turntd the other Fay, I nil my pockets
with the articles of merchandise and carried
olf a ham. In the one mse L take tuer
client'8 unie one i ta^c- tne tu^e ci -'-s aw
senger to transfer the goods to civ bc-u?2.
while in the other case I tike none cf the
time of the merchant and I ^ait upon myself,
and I transfer tie goods without anj trouble
to hits. In other -words, a sneak thief is not
so bad as a man Trhc contracts debts he =e?er
es?ect3 to pc-y.
- Yet in all cur cities there are families ~::o
move erery Maj day to get into prosimiry to
ith.^r rrwvw-* ov<rf rriaatslion^ and Et'Otheca
ries. They owe everybody within half a
mile of where they^new live, aid z?z'.- M-.y
they will ~ove into a distant pari of the
city, Ending a sew lot of victims. Jfean- j
while you, the honest family in the ne?r
house, are bothered day by day b*, ;Le
locking at the door of diaappointei'^akers !
and butchers and dry goods oeslers and j
newspaper carriers, and you aire asked where :
your predecessor is. You.-do not know. In
w&5 arranged you sho/ifTnet know. Mean-,
while your predecessor has gone ro some Jistant
part of tiie'oity, and the people ~ho

.No voider lis; so many o: our merchants ;
fail in business. They are swindled in!o j
bankruptcy by thess wandering Arab;.!
these nomads of city life. They cheat the I
grocer out of the green a?ple3 which make j

' it be a bid for a soud black vote lor

of the eld desire to humiliate the
I south, the effect is the same. It vivifies
the race issue into vigorous life.

race; and i t once more solidifies the
souih against the party of negro domination.
Of course there can be j
but one auswsr from the south to Mr.:

one response from the reordering followers

Any weakness or dis- !
ease of woman's special j

\V* N* through Indifference !
neglects these troubles is having the foun- i

A modest woman naturally recoils from I
the mortifying ordeal of fxstnioations and
local treatment which doctors insist upon.
But there is no necessity for any such repugnant
alternative. Dr. Pierce's Favorite

devised for this particular purpose by one ]
of the nest eminent of living specialists in j
woman's diseases.
Dr. Pscrcc has beer, for nearly ^o years j
chief consulting physician of the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, cf Buffalo,
N. Y. During: this time he has received
fully ninety thousand ^letters from women
who have been cured by the "Favorite Pre- j

printed by permission in one chapter of Dr. i
Pierce's great thousand-page book. "The )
