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 ing. "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 mothsr "'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 said: "'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!"

The writer once spent a SaturdayN afternoon in the study ot a dignitary of_ the church while the ecclesiastic strug 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 and therefore may not be put in risk. at The moralist may declare that the 5 gambler gets, or at least wants to get, something for nothing. Men will laugh. l They know better. The winner gave his ebance to lose for his winnings. S For his losses the winner got his m chance to win. But ask the speculator bl 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 -Current Literature. 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.
