"Tho little fellow hasn't dropped all of his pile yet," ho remarked. "He's pretty near tho bottom, though of his pile, I mean and he's on a losing stock too." "Then, why not warn him in time?" queried tho doctor. "What would bo tho use?" counter queried tho broker. "It wouldn't do any good, and it's no business of mine. anyway.

"No, but wo shall want a little if wo are to curry yesterday's iurchasf-3 for yon any longer, sir. " The clerk handed ont :i slip.

"Tim sti k is lKuiid to risu before the day is ovt r?" he asked as ho pushed the check through tho clerk's wicket. "Can't say, sir." "But what do you think?" "I don't think, sir. It's one of tho rules of the house that nono but the partners may give advice or information to tho customers." "Either partner about?" "Not just at present, sir. " "Please havo mo notified as soon a it touches tho figure I mentioned. I will sell out promptly when it reaches tho right figure. I need tho money by this afternoon. " "3Ir. Wheafon has your instructions, fir, and he will follow them faithfully. " Tho littlo man sauntered out, entered a nearby cafe that is famous among Wall street men, ordered a champagne cocktail and ;i light breakfast and lei surely disposed of it. Then ho lighted a cigar and smoked it reflectively for awhile. "Bless me, it's 10:.'i0 already!" he murmured, coming to himself and pull ing out his watclu "I must get back to the broker. Dare say ho's sold my littlo investment for me. In that case I'll havo tho money all right lefore noon. " Tho same clerk was still at the little window. "Well?" asked tho littlo man. .uui u in.uyiu., e-am uiu cici. "That stock is going down." "Why, yes, indeed!" mnrmured the plunger. "This is really a heavier mar gin than I paid an hour or two ago.

"I repeat, why not warn this young man in time? I tell you, Wheatou, that ho has neither much mental nor hodilv stamina, and if you permit him to bo ruined he is likely to go insane perhaps commit wmo violent crime for which you, Wheaton, who permitted him to go to his ruin, would be responsible in the eye of heaven, even if not in tho minds of men. Remedy your terriblo work, I say, or you may have to answer to your own conscience for acrimo that I would not havo on mine. " Wheaton smiled again and repeated his query, "What would bo tho use of it?" "Then I will go to him myself," ex claimed tho man of medicine. "I will warn him beforo it is too late. " "And get yourself kicked, perhaps, for meddling in another man's affairs. " "I sdiall speak to him, anyway, and at once. " "Darcy, you will do nothing of the sort.

Dr. Darcy arose and began to pace up f riends wllO are and down tho littlo private office, keep ing his sympathetic gaze riveted all the time upon tho hapless speculator. Finally he exclaimed: "There's the poor littlo chap signing another check. " "I daro say," replied tho imperturba ble broker. "Ilis stock has been falling down stairs all day long, and I am con fident that tomorrow it will go down another flight of stairs.

A few more such drafts upon mo will ex haust ma ' Tho clerk paid littlo attention to this remark. He was accustomed to such phrases. They were a part of his dailv life. Tho littlo man went out again. On the sidewalk ho paused, looking irreso lutely about him. "Wonderwhatlcan do to kill time?" ho thought. "Peoplo who spend all their time around Wall street must find it terribly hard to kill time day in and day out. It's kind of monotonous to pass all tho timo in that cafe, but I don't seo any way out of it. I'm very sure that I couldn't become a habitue of Wall street. I should die of ennui. However, I haven't time to go up town. I must be on hand to receive the mony that this investment is going to bring me." So ho wandered back to tho cafe. It was too hot to eat, and besides he wasn't hungry. He ordered a small lottle and tried to drink it, but met with only in different success. Yet he managed to put in an hour at tho cafe. Then ho roso and went back to the oITico. As he entered his eye brightened and ho hastened his step, for he saw Mr. Wheaton in his private office. "Well, what news?" he a.ked. "Have you sold out for me?" "The clerk has something for you. Wheaton replied. "Xot another assessment, I hope?" "I'msorrrto say it is." Tho little man walked rather hurriedly out to the clerk's desk, drawing out his checkbook as ho went. He merelv danced at the slip and then wrote out tho check, but thero was a cloud on his face. "I hope tho tide'll turn soon, "he "I'vo only got $3,100 left, und said. then"- "And then?" the clerk repeated. "Well, perhaps you don't know what it means to me. " Tho clerk didn't even take the trouble to ask. Hard hearted? Well, brokers' clerks don't attempt to shoulder tho troubles of the world. "When things get to this pitch," murmured the little man to himself, "I snpposo it's the proper thing to watch the stock ticker. I'll le blessed, though, if I know how to do it. " He conlided his difficulty to the chrk, who obligingly explained to the uet phyte what the seemingly cabalistic characters on tho tape were really in tended to show. "I think I understand now,." said th little man. "If you don't mind. I'll fetay right here beside it. " "The tape is for the convenience our customers.

Then ho bounded into the private of fice, shouting: "Wheaton, it almost closed me out. But it lias stopped going down for to day, and I've got $300 left" "And sense enough into the bargain to let it alone and keep hold of your balance, I hope," roared Dr. Darcy. "That stock is one of the biggest swin dles in tho market." Wheaton smiled. He had been filling out a document, which he now signed and handed to tho littlo man. "Thanks," said the latter, pocketing tho paper, with a look of supremo satis faction. "It's a nice littlo profit enough to keep me in Europe for a year or more. ' ' With theso words ho was gone. Dr. Darcy turned upon the broker and de manded: "Wheaton, what the deuce does that little' snip mean? Hero ho has been squandering money on margins all day long, and now ho says that tho profits will keep him in Europe for a year. " "It means, "replied thebroker, "that this little fellow belongs to one of the wealthiest families in Xew York. lie and another very rich young fello'.v made a bet last night as to whether 1,000 shares of that stock would eat up more than lo.OOO in margins today. Each put up half of tho money to bo n d and besides that a wager of $o0,- 000 a side. Onr young friend who hi? just left won by a balance of 300. S; you see, it was a very lucky investment for him." The doctor looked as if he didn't feel well. At last ho blurted out: "Wheaton, you made a fool of mo in the most approved fashion. Of course you'll dine with me tonight, and we'll wipe out this score in the best wine I can buy. ' New York Journal Walking Jackets ONE DOLLAR. Steel and Iron Ranges, Stoves and Fixtures.
