RANDOM THOUGHTS Wrix Mim I heard of a man the other day who had been baying cotton future* and who bad made several thousand dollar· The market changed and he began to lose thooey. Being % strict church member bis conscience began to bart him as soon as be got on the losing side. He met a brother In the church and asked him if be thought dealing in cotton fntures was gambling. "Certainly," was the reply. "So do I," he said, "I need to think it was all right, but now 1 think it is gambling and the riskiest kind of gambling and 1 am going to quit too." As long as he made money, it looked good to "him when he In*t it looked bad. We too often shape our opinion· by our own · selfish interests. Our decision isJaiTerted by the ownership of the ox gored. I have seen church fairs tolerate practices that every minister would condemn in individ uals. The business conducted on the line* of most church fairs would not be tolerated by fair minded peo ple. Even the methods often adopt ed in church collections smack of extortion. An effort is frequently made to wring money from the con gregation knowing it is unwilling to be worked. Ever/ preacher knows the way it Is done, but some justify the means by the ends, though it has somewhat the appearance of a mgnweyirsan's hoia-op. ♦ * ♦ Short cuts to fortune by way of the cotton exchange, or any other exchange of the kind, is indeed a pretty risky business. Of course a man uses his Judgment in investing in futures, bat there is always a fal low on the other side of the deal backing his judgment with his money, l'su ally he follow» It η a business and from long experience In better pr«par.-d to take care ol his money than the fc novice. Your money is never safe In a cotton deal as many people have lately learned, and though you may wiu for awhile, unless you are remarkably fortunate you will lu lime lose both earnings and capital. It is the lucky fellow's winning» we hear most about am! not the other man's losses Of course some mon can atford to lose their investments, but if you can't, you had better stay off the exchange. I am not discussing the question of right or wrong involved in such speculations, but purely the advlsa' bility of engaging in such transac tions from a business standpoint «.* The greatest trouble with future deallug is the fascination about It that holds,a man to it whether he is gaining or (using, the delusive hope held out that h^ will make big money after awhile, the mania for making money in that way. The strongest proof that can b* given of the danger from It is that if the great, commercial agencies learn that the small merchant.U engaged in it, his credit Is at once weakened * * t All of this spéculait ν>· com** from too great a de«ire to K»t rich cjul-k, to earn mon·? without labor, to ptl»· up a fortune without wail ing It is commendable to d>»lre t<> inak»· and »i»> money, but to regard it a· th'· sole object <>f lif» is wrong. Life *e«-m· to have become, with •oui* men, a mad struggle fur for tuue which l*»t· right up to ttie grave. Hut few ever become satis fied with what they secure though they know they possess many time· more than they can ever use. 1 be lieve that more satisfaction can come from doing good with monay than from gaining more of it than can be used. Carnegie'· idea of giv ing away hi· fortune before hi· death i· a commendable one. He may not be uting hi· gift· to the beat advantage by ••tablishing libraries, but th· influence of hi· wealth will be felt for centurie· to come. A man doe· not bave to he a millionaire to help maukiud with hi· wealth. There are doseti· of opportunities all around u· for the mau of moderate mean·, who wants to do permanent good to bis fetlowmen. H. C Τ C. Bale·. ban Antonio, Tei. On «aie March 'at and 2nd.
