RemIalscences of Men Who Ead
Seen Worse Days and Irritating
Announcements When, They Were
Hard Up and Out of Ezaployment.
The advance agent met the leading
man of another show the other night,
and, as they had not seen each other in
seven years, there was a warmness
about their greeting that was refresh
"Dear old Tom!" said the leading
man. "I was thinking of you not dlve
minutes ago. Sit down, you dear old
fellow! I passed a bakery not five min
utes ago, and I thought of you. Why,
here's Willis! I was just saying to
Tom that I never see a baker's that I
don't think of him. Tom and I were
poor once! Mighty poor too. I re
member that we had been turned out
of different homes on the same cold
night and met each other for the dlrst
time by chance. We shared the com
forts of a butcher's wagon thaf n~ight
and went upon a rummaging expedi
tion the next day. We halted in front
of a German bakery, half starved and
disgusted with life generally. There
was a huge sign in the window which
said, 'There Is No Cake Like Ours.' We
hadn't a penny between us, but Tom
stepped in and asked for a sample of
the cake. The Dutchmhan didn't ap
precate the humor of the request, so
Tom said, 'You may keep your cake,
boss; but, say, give me a chunk of
bread, quick, or I'll cut out your giz
zard.' I'll never forget that cake sign
because it took us hours to get away
from the police who wcre attracted to
the scene by the baker's cries for help."
"But that was not my only experi
ence with a peculiar sign," remarked
the advance agent after a li'earty laugh.
"The year before I went on the road
for the first time I was in as hard'luck
as ever man was. I had pawned ev
erything in sight and was almost starv
ed. I found an umbrella in the hall
way of a down town building, and the
janitor told me to keep it. It was a
fairly good rain shield, and I immedi
ately carried it to mine uncle. I didn't
know this particular relative, although
I had formed the acquaintance of hun
dreds of his people. His place was on
Sixth avenue, and he gave me 74& cents
on it, which I gladly, accepted. As he
was making out the ticket he said:
'Do you want to save it from the
"'Yes,' I answered.
"'That will cost you 12 cents. Pep
haps you would like to have it insured?
It is always advisable, but it will cost
you 12 cents more,' replied my friend.
"'All right,' I said. 'Take good care
of it.' He could have eaten it for all 1
cared, for I never intended to redeem
it. I was about to leave the place when
I saw a big sign on the far wall It
"'No extra charge for putting watch
es and jewelry in the safe in the office.'
"Watches and jewelry! It brought
the tears to my eyes, and as I crawled
into my 10 cent bed that night I
thought of diamond necklaces, pearls
and rubles of priceless value and-cake.
Oh, the curse of some signs! How they
mock the poor!"

gledl in vain to frame an argumentA
against gambling to be presented to the*
congregation on the morrow. He aban
doned the attempt. Far be it from a
literary journal to assert powers the
possession of which the professionally
religious are fain to disclaim, yet with
submission -we even venture to believe Yt
that at least one cogent and effective er
argument lies against all forms of gain- sy
blng-one, namely, based on the truth aj
that wealth, great or small, is a trust w

his ebance to lose for his winnings. S
For his losses the winner got his m

whether he would gamble with trust tc
funds held by him for orphans and
then suggest to him the one great truth
that is seizing hold of men's conscience,
the most hopeful sign in these perplex- tc
ed days of social unrest, that men are er
trustees of all that they call their own. vt
Life Insurance. ~
It is an interesting fact that, what- p
ever the reason may be. life insurance
is much more popular in the Unitd
States than in any other country. In
proportion to their numbers the Amer
lan people carry twice as much life
insurance as the Britishers, five times re
as much as the Germans and eight g
times as much as the French.
This is partly explained by the large
number of American policies issued to
serve other purposes than mere provi- bi
sion for the families of the insured. er
The scope of what may be called busl- 02
ness as distinguished from family in- p1
surance is constantly enlarging. A no,- wi
el and interestIng recent development
of it is the Insurance of the lives of -
Protestant ministers for large sums
which are made payable at their deaths
to their churches.-NewV York World.
