Hints to Women on tho Caro of Property. f Alfred Walker in Harper's Bazar. SPECULATION. It would seem unnecessary to caution women against speculation. By speculation we mean an investment in things of uncertain value ou which large profits are hoped for. Put since the boldest operators at Eaden-Baden are women, and since they do personally, but oftener by proxy, rush into the arena of the bulla and bears of Wall Street, caution on this Bubject will not be out of place. The folly f those who dabble In lotteries, who Bee the wheel of fortune revolving, and imagine that It Is loaded with benefits for them, is not folly merely, but guiit. The rashness of those who hover around the vortex of stack speculation i cot rashness merely, but prob'aUe perdition. And if it ib rashness for men. jt is for women insanity. Though women may never seek speculation of any sort, it will pretty certainly seek them, often in very enticing forms. There are two good rules which apply to speculation : 1. Never borrow money to speculate with. 2. Never speculate so deeply but that, if you lose it all, you won't feel it. Fifteen hundred dollars of roanufactanng stock was offered to rao at par, with an assur ance) that it would sell in a month for $3000. I believed it. I had no surplus money at tho moment, and I had adopted the rule above, not to borrow for speculation. In a month that etock sold for 0000. Was I wise cr fool ish? Had I bought it, I should have kept it through the intervening years until now. A few days ago that stock was sold at auction for ten cents a share a total of one dollar. The time when speculation is most rife la when money is cheap and abundant. And then the most dangerous form of speculation is in city and suburban lots. No one thing has occasioned greater disaster to well-to-do fami lies than this. It is to respectable to own land, it is so solid and sure, aud it won't run away. Would to Ileaveu it would." eavs one, " if it would only leave behind what I paid for it !" The rule should be remembered : never specu late deeper than, If the loes be total, it will not be felt. Put the better way is to avoid specu lation altogether. DEliT. Tho present system of shopping aul market ing on credit is radically wrong, and an injury to all concerned, and tho fault liea about equal ly with thoee who buy and those who sell. The merchant likes a running account with his safe customers, because it giveB him a hold on their continuance, and makes his sales larger and more profitable. The customer liked it be cause it evinces Ins good credit, and enables him to get what he wants without waiting for a full purse. But at length a ECttlement comes, and then the customer ii usually astonished at tho amount of the bill and his own folly in purchasing things which Lis family could easily have dispensed with. If you are wise and will consult your own comfort and tho good of others, you will follow tho rule. Pay as you go, inilexibly. It does not need tho authority cf an apostle to establish the wi-dooi of tho proverb. "Oo no man any thing. Were tbi i-.ago precept univereally obeyed, ono of tho chief source f trouble would 1-e taken out of the civilized world, lie sides a roat cainm public mora!?,' Here wouM be a vast saving in the economy of Jtviny. Put if. iu the iiiauagemeut of '.our properly, you are eometlmes asked to give credit or time lor payment, do not fear to scrutinize the debtor c-loseiy. A t;ood customer is never di.-onnc-rtwl by it; it 13 only the doubtful aud tLe bad wLo resent it. Short Btttlements, ho'.vevxr, mko long fiieud.ibiD8. Avery long credit aceouut, like a note, bocomes in time invalidated. It dies of old ago. When tho current expenses of a family aro not paid as they occur, a pats-book should be used and settled onco a veek, and for such prompt payment many merchant make a small discount. When one's income is not superabundant, a record of all expenses should bo kept, and a synopsis of each week drawn off for comparison. This H so important that I am tempted to give a sampb from my own book. BTNOPIICAL AXAMFLI OF OXE WEFK'S EXPESPIP. January 1 to January 8.

PPOPPRTY TO KEEP. There can be no question that for women good registered bonds are specially desirable, being less troublesome than any other secnrl- ties. Put It often fcamjens that women inherit real estate, and a few remarks oh its mao..ge - ... . ment mav bo useful. A very wise mau of l.ftv , ... , years experience in taking caro of property, especially for womcu, once said tome: "k'l womau is isu wuu a uoubo at au eu.iou 10 cer condition, I always advise her to keep it. A woman with a hones of her own a home 1 will usually get along even on a very small in come ; and sho and her family, if she have one, happier if they have a homo than i n!eJ for "lament of the midue cf the eu 3 without 'it. Without a home of tate ;. day of Le&rin Ma? 13- L"a,a will be much they could bo their own, they are usually unsettled and eub ject to many discomforts.' And bo, if a woman 4 . J . . , muenujuiuer reai eamte, nuu u jieus ui moderate income, it will ecarcely bo w:s3 to part with it, especially if it be situated in a village or city that is growing. The mere re tention of real estate in these circumstances has made thousand ricb. Avoid incurring a debt for the improvement of such property. A lady recently called on mo for advice. he inherited $50,000 of real estate, which yielded her a fairincomo, equal to every want. But not contented, she borrowed money to make costly improvements and to erect new build ings. Now, with the decline of property, her rent-roll hardly pays her interest and taxes, and she is liable to heavy loeses by foreclosure. Of course good S3curities, cf whatsoever sort, should be kept, that is, not exchanged for others for the sake of a little hoped-for gain. While it is not wise to carry all one's eggs in one basket, it should be remembered that eggs are liable to break in handling. It is easy to loosen up property, but not easy to re-establish it. PROPERTY TO RENT OR SELL. In renting houeed, stores, or other property, the following rulo is worthy of regard. Ps satisfied with a moderate rent from a good tenant. A high rent is oppressive, and tenia to break down a tenant and entail loss on the landlord. When application is made for a store or house, take time to inquire about the char acter and financial standing of the applicant, and also about his habit of paying rent. If a house is wanted for the purpose of keeping boarders, and the payment of the rent depends on the Buccess of that businees alone, there can be no doubt that the payment of the rent will be quite uncertain. And eo in respect to renting a store ; if the merchant has no proper ty but his stock in trade, bought perhaps to a large extent on credit, you share in hiB risks, which may be quite unwise. If eome new en terprise ia contemplated in the nso of your property, and the rent is to come out of it. remember that the risk of its success is largely you no. When property is' to be rented, a lease in legal form id desirable, and fhoul J al ways provide for ejectment if its covenants are not kept, i; 14 ofte-u Letter to leas prjpeny especially bind, at a moderate rent, than to s.ci) it, for when a saje w mado it implies rci'ivtbt ment, which has iH dangers. T):i is esper-hHy true ; land that is improving. JVzl if theio bo on upward, tendoccr :u 1 ropetty, r.ttit or prospective, or if tlifi property h kreiy iu Lui!'i:nfe wl.ioh will rcq.mo ccnti'iUl expense. tho preference ior a ieac over a va'o may not exist. Put never pare with real atxVs '.vitLout carefully forecasting the futr.n. ' Soni rt the largCbt estates iu oar couttry, ul Uire estates tro not few, have simply grown u: oat of the retention of real estate. , HOW TO INCREASE PHOPEillT. It is seldom adviablrt for women who have a sufficient income to attempt i's increase ly exchanges or investing it in business. Put there are many whose income is inadequate, and who aro under the necessity of increasing their income or of leaniaj on their friends. Supposing a woman m these circumstances is of an independent Kpirit. and resolves not to depend on the aesietanco of friends, my first tuggestion to her would bo to resolve that, come what may, her present property shall not be diminished. And if to what she has sho can, by self-denial and earncEt effort, add eome thing from time to time, the tide will at length turn in Ler favor. She may hear it whispered, "Molly Stark has taken up teaching, his be come a governess, is copying law papers quite a tumble." Well, Molly Stark is not beholden to such, nor ever will be. Saving and laying up is the Labit that euc cccds. It f cetns to be in the blood of esraa I CoPt what it may of present self-denial, thv I nel tho ball rcllitg tliRt ft ill glow into a I round competence.
