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
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.
