The persistent effect upon the heart
of caffeine in coffee cannot but result
in the gravest conditions, in time.
Each ntlack of the drug (and that
means each cup of coffee) weakens the
organ a little more, and the end is al
most a matter of mathematical demon
stration. A lady writes from a West
ern state:
"I am of Herman descent and it waa
natural that I should learn at u very
early age to drink coffee. I'ntil I was
2.1 years old I drank scarcely anything
else at my meals.
"A few years ago I began to be af
fected by a steadily Increasing nerv
ousness, which eventually developed
Into a distressing heart trouble that
made nic very weak and miserable.

“Finally It was derided a few month!
ago to quit the use of coffee absolute

as our hot table drink. I had but little
Idea that it would help me, but con

The Dilly
Dranatic Critic of the New York
(Copy rig bleO)
Dilly tad Uncle George Discuss Fi
nance and Financiers.
"Tell me. dear uncle,” said little
Dilly, ' what is finance? I see so many
references to It in the dally prints, anil
must confess a to*al unfamiliarity
with the term.”
"Finance, my dear nephew." said
t’ncle George, musingly, as he moved
the cuspidor a trifle nearer the study
table, and gazed benignly at the cell
ing, "finance is a subject that require*
much thought, and even more discus
sion. Roughly, I may say it is a hys
terical attempt to create something
tangible out of a purely hypothetical
condition in a manner that will re
dound to the ultimate advantage of
the financier. It may be described as
S combination of greed, bluff, nerve,
and monetary metaphysics, coupled
with sincere honesty of purpose. Per
haps I may say that It is the antithesis
of Lawsonesia, if we take Mr. Law
son's estimate of his own high-flown
purpose as a base.
i nere are \arimi8 degrees of
finance, and an infinite number of an
gles from which it may he viewed. For
instance. Dllly. the reckless attempts
of your good aunt to coax a new dress
out of a housekeeping allowance, may
be described as finance.' When I
audit the bills of the tradespeople and
lop off unnecessary items of expendi
ture, I call it high finance, for the
reason, my boy. that your excellent
aunt is about to be stung without
knowing in Just what manner the feat
was accomplished. Frenzied finance
is another form of the same Idea,
but it has only come into gen
eral use during the last two years. It
Is not properly finance at all. and if we
■ searched the older dictionaries for its
definition, we would discover that it
is referred to as plain swindling or,
In smaller instances, theft. All forms
of finance, however. Dilly, resolve
themselves Into one general idea, to do
something for some one who does not
want it done, and thus place the party
under an obligation which requires
monetary settlement.”
“Are there no honest financiers, dear
undo?” asked little Dilly, anxiously.
“Doubtless, my dear nephew.’' re
plied Uncle George, sadly. “I have
no doubt that there are many of
them. There may be so many that it
might be necessary to form them into
battalions and give each squad a num
ber, but. unfortunately, they are not
with us at this time. In discussing
finance, Dilly. you must learn to make
use of reasonable terms. In your
study of the English language you
have doubtless learned that no two
words directly antithetic to each
other can be combined to form a com
mon meaning. One could not well de
scribe a friend as a tall short man,
and consequently one may not de
scribe a financier by the adjective hon
i ii ii ii iiujifu. i-imy, mai your
studies had progressed to that point.
"There are many forms of finance,
and all forms are described most fully
in the penal code, but, unfortunately,
under different names. It is this that
causes such great difficulty, for our
public officers are notoriously weak
on F.ynonyms, my boy. No more pa
thetic sight can he imagined Chan a
conscientious public officer seated In
his study at midnight, spectacles on
nose and magnifying glass in his hand

quate penalty for a financier Th*

a professional mendicant in search of
work, but he Is doomed to failure from
the first, for while he Is searching un
der the 'f's' In the code, his remedy

"Will the poor man ever find his mis
take, uncle?” Inquired little Dllly. anx
"I am afraid not. Dllly," responded
his uncle, sadly. "In fact. I may say I
am sure he will not. You Ree hls con
stant studies have almost ruined hls
eyesight, and by the time some kindly
considerate friend points out the error,
the public officer will be completely
blind. It Is a pitifully sad case. On#
grain of comfort remains to us, my boy.
It Is that occasionally we hear of a new
cure for shortness of vision. I have at
| ways maintained that we pay our public
officials altogether too small a sum for
the work they have to do. Should their
salaries be Increased, so they might
maintain their families In better style
and without drudgery, who shall say
their evcslght would not improve? Hut
to return to tbs financier, my dear
“Pursuing the subject one finds a re
markable similarity between the mid
night marauder and the midday flnan
tier. The first, should you Inadverteni
Jy exhibit a roll of real money on a dar\
street, will merely beat you to death
with a blackjack. The other, with th"
kindliest feeling* in the world, will, at
th« sight of yoyr long green. direct your
attention to the newest painting he has
scoured from abroad, am; rhig you with
a handle of watered stock. The result is
the same, but the penalites are far dlf
ferent. One of the most familiar forms
of finance may be described as selling
something one has not got to some one
else who does not want ft and then buy
ing the same thing which oue never had
at a figure which only exists in the im
agination. This may seem a trifle in
volved to you. Dllly. but it is no more
involved than the ways of the financier*
themselves. Compared to many of our
eminent financiers, my bov. a second
story man or a sneak thief, is a com
pound of all the virtues, and should oc
cupy a ulche In the hall of fame."
• All financiers are rich, are they not,
uncle?" asked Dllly.
No, my dear boy. rot all of them,
i^ome are In jail. They are only wait
ing. however, until their release to put
into execution a plan for beating an or
phan asylum out of the oatmeal that
has been donated to it. and then they
will have plenty of money.”
Hut is a financier always dishonest,
uncle?" Inquired little Dllly.

George, fervently. "Sometimes he is

ever reflected." asked Mr.
Muggins, "upon the peculiar fact that
while our every-day life is as a rule
entirely dull and uneventful lots of
things happen In the neighborhood if
you should chance to go away for a
brief stay?
"Yes, sir! It s true! Just you ob
serve w hat changes will take place in
the affairs of your friends during your
absence. In this connection I recall an
amusing, although embarrassing, ex
perience that occurred to a relative of
mine not so long ago. She returned to
town from a visit abroad lasting a
>ear and a half. During that time sha
had received but few letters from
home, and those principally from my
self and other male relatives, and prac
tically no newspapers at all giving her
the latest gossip of the town.
“Well, a day or so after her return
j chanced to ask some one a question
with refence to a Mr. Blank, who for
years had been an Intimate friend of
the family. In reply, she was told that
the subject of her Inquiry had died
of yellow fever in Cuba. So horrified
was my relative at the unexpected
news that she did not once think to
ask when the unfortunate event had
occurred. \\ ithout a word to anyone,
and without their being aware of her
intention in the premises, my relative,
who is most punctilious In such mat
ters, at once repnirej to her room,
there to write a letter of condolence to
the widow of her old friend. We nTter
ward learned that in the composition
of this delayed message of sympathy
my relative said, among other things:
" Ra‘l news of your misfortune
hai Just come to me. 1 want to tell
you how deeply I sympathise with you.
The future must look very dark and
desolate to you, but I trust that you
will find courage to endure It.’
“When my relative had posted her
letter of condolence she returned to
the family circle, from which, when
further reference bad been made to
the loss of her old friend, she learned
that the sad event had occurred short
ly after her departure from this coun
tiy and that the widow had but re
cently married a worthy gentleman
from Pittsburg When this informa
tion was imparted to my relative, to
gether with the fact that the happy
couple had that week returned from
their honeymoon, she nearly fainted
when she suddenly realized what a re
markable effect her letter or condo
lence must produce In the mind of the
remarried lady."
