It is futile to turn back the hands of the clock. Wo may look with charity upon a per son In search of employment In this day when to have passed the half cen tury mark seems to bo an Insuperable bar to entrance Into any useful occu pation, for attempting to put up a more youthful front; but concealment of one's ago from motives of mere vanity Is Intolerable to any just sense of propriety. If a lady can be beauti ful and charming In spite of her years, that Is to her honor. If a man can defy Time to abate his vigor, It Is vastly to his credit. The fact speaks of a temperate and virtuous and well spent life. Macbeth, when his way of life had fallen Into the sere and yel low leaf, reflected despairingly that he must not look to havo that which should accompany old age, "as honor, love, obedience, troops of friends." For such miscreants old ago cannot fall to be a horror; but for one who can face the end of his earthly pilgrimage as one who is about to llo down to pleas ant dreams, the years are luminous and golden. Each added ono Is a crown of glory upon the sliver brow. Experience, wisdom, spiritual under standing, lurk beneath the lines of care and the bruises of conflict. Such an old age is at once a joy and beneficence. i a i - aj i -i-B-1-fBf-IIainBnan EL. ,' Jlanananananananananananananananananananananananananan HHl vaaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaBanaaani Hm.

THOMAS TAYLOP, JR , Prominent Lawyer, Talked Of for Superior Court Judge. proprietor takes, his ease, in fields that havo come to him for little or no effort. It Is too apt to be the spirit of gambling that desires to get some thing for nothing In return, which has been fostered by the government land lotteries. There Is no reason why a strong, healthy man with rea sonable Intelligence and practical sense should not get ahead In this country. But to begin with he must learn to save. His expenses must come well Insldo of his income, lip muHt stop hoping for a fortune to fall to him and for a life of case. His first step Is to save and his second to latlently hold on to what ho has ac cumulated. In time ho will begin to be ablo to invest as ho desires. The rest will be a matter of judgment There Is one investment that is al- wnn good. A home kept free of In cumbrances Is a steady saving, a refugo In times of trouble, and a haven that makes possible the sup port of the ramlly by the loss compe tent members should occasion demand. To those who love old mother earth it brings a l)lt of ground which, although a poor excuse for those great, waving fields of grain, can nevertheless, bo put to good use by one who under stands, and made a source both of profit and of pleasure. t WHERE INTERNATIONAL BOUND. ARIES COUNT FOR LITTLE. ' It is tha unvarying law of capital tfcat It flows from the older countrisH to the newer, from the land of crowd ed population, Intensive agriculture, economical habits land conservative business methods, to the land of un filled expanses, unopened mines, lim ited transportation systems and pro gressive spirit. Thus the United States was at first and for many years an exclusively borrowing country. A London authority estimates that nix billion dollars of European capital have come here In the past Bixty years. The lenders have had no occasion to regret the Investment, for their money has earned them more here than It could have earned at home. Those six billions of European capital, of the coming of which there has been scant mention, supplementing the continu ous tldo of European immigration, of which we hear so much, have been a most Important agent in developing the country's great natural resources, and in giving it the splendid measure of prosperity which It enjoys. But the United States some time ago ceas ed to be wholly a borrowing nation. Although It has been lavish, not to say wasteful, In expenditure and con sumption, it has had enough surplus In the past generation to send about one billion dollars to the Latln-Amerl-can countries for Investment, and has invested one-fourth as much more in Canada. It is now sending large sums to the far East. Tho diffusion or American capital to other counteles which are less developed la certain to bo carried on upon a much largor scale In coming years, nnd to have an Important bearing upon our foreign relations. Tho ease with which capi tal crosses International boundaries means much for the well being of hu manity. It contributes to tho spread of civilization, tends to secure sta bility of government, nnd promotes the cause of peace. OAT THE CONTRARY, INDEED. After the. experience of recent years, which everybody has noted anda has peisonnlly felt In increased expense, one does not readily agree with this statement of the New York Journal of Commeice: "Suppression of compe tition to put up prices generally will tend to restrict consumption and in jure the very trade which It Is In tended to benefit." A notable case of the contrary result is evidenced by the meat trust, which has restricted trade, has advanced prices and Is according to tho showing made by the Armours to tho Now York Stock Ex change; making about 3G per cent on, Its capital. The Standard Oil Com pany with its 40 per cent dividends Is another, and the recent 300 per cent dividend declared by Wells, Fargo A Co. shows what may be done by tho Judicious management and high rates of an express combination. Many other trusts and combinations might be cited with more or less of the samo effect. speakers nnd 1.G00 diners will sit down to a banquet at tho Second Regiment Armory, Washington boulevard and Curtis Btreet. Among the speakers will be Governor Deneen, Shelby M. Cullom, William Lorlmer, John E. W. Wnyman, William J. Calhoun and John Temple Graves.

Ho Is a lifelong Re publican and has always been an no tlve supporter of the regular party organization.

In looking over tho published rec ords of a family of sorno historic) im portance, which dates back to pro revolutionary times, a gentleman found that the year of the date of his birth, as well as tho birth-dates of all his brothers and sisters, bad been erased by an elder sister whoso gfD'itlvenes8 upon that point had long been a subject of family Jest. One's age Is somethlne for which one is not responsible, and It is tho last thing that one should be ashamed of. In the lives of tho best there la enough for regret, for chagrin and mortifi cation; but shamo should be felt only for mistakes and offenses which could have been avoided. Nature Is a stern llterallst. The procession of the sea- NO MORE TALK OF THE. OLD FASHIONED WINTER. Proofs that we are having a good, old-fashioned winter have multiplied so rapidly that tho most enthusiastic lovers of cold and Bnow should bo sat isfied and joyful. Tho weather man, who Is our highest authority when It comes to comparisons, has given his official sanction to the use of super latives. According to those who wait anxiously with horso and cutter tho sleighing is the best wo have had In years. Youthful skaters havo had the chanco of their lives. There ore al ways grumblers, however, nnd they complain that while tho snow and ico Imvo hung on tho coal has melted. They have a special grievance nlso ngalnst the sleet on which they spoiled their wooden shovels when they should havo used an ax. Thoy get no com fort from tho fresh nnd biting nlr, but have much to say of transporta tion delays and tho bad wnlklng, Pos sibly It may be wnsting time to pass ulong a woid of good cheer to such pessimists, but thero Is a light In tho darkness even for them If the) will only make tho most of their op portunities. For weeks It has been posslblo for eveiy man to bo his own Iceman. Put on a pan filled with wa ter and the good, olil-fiiHliloned win ter will do the rest. It will keep your refrigerator supplied from day to day.

Barrett, tho eminent electrician who Invented the present patrol and fire alarm system, enjoys a popularity In Chicago that extends from one end of the city to the other. Tom N.

Burke, the popular and well-known attorney, Is the first choice of the Democrats of tho Thirteenth Ward for the nomination for alderman. DESIRE FOR LAND ON INCREASE. Tho deslro for land that Is said to so increasing in our cities Is n healthy symptom and will eventually result In good. As yet, however, tho deslro for lands gets no farther than the wish. It ereates no effort to save, no study of tno possibilities of a small begin ning that will lead to later results, no Idea of hard work It is, too often, just a glorious pipe dream of waving acres oi gram ium gruw wane sine The right man for tho Democrats to nominate for tho vncancy on tho Cir cuit Court bench Is former Judgo Os good Drown.
