X, DON'T GETINTO DEBT The Advice of a Wealthy St. Paul Man to the Rising Generation. Words of Good Advice From William Dawson, the Mill ionaire Banker. Corner Stones on Which He Would Rear a Success ful Career. Incidents in His Own Busi ness Life— Stick to What You Beg-in. NTEGPJTY Of character, coup led with perse verance in his chosen voca tion," said. Will i a in Dawson, '*w i 1 1 conduce very materially to the success of a young man starting in busi ness, and I have seen this exem- piincu in numerous instances since I came to this country from the North of Ireland forty odd years ago. "1 remember on one occasion while in Louisiana, that I was talking with a gentleman in regard to the success that attended the efforts of a leading mer chant, and he expressed surprise that a man of his caliber should have made such a mark in life. "But the explanation was simple enough. The merchant had established a reputation for integrity, and when he told customers that -roods were of a cer tain quality he impressed them with the idea that he implicitly believed what he was telling them. "Take the case of the late A. T. Stew art, too, when it was possible for a so ciety magnate to be attracted to his counter to purchase a $3,000 or $3,000 cameFs -hair shawl, while on the oppo site side of the house a daughter of poverty might be engaged in making a selection among the piles of 10-cent calico submitted to her for inspection. "Both had confidence that goods bought from A. T. Stewart were just represented, and that there was no dan ger of their being cheated. And what was true in this case applies to every walk of life. Let a man be known as a model of integrity in his business rela tions and it will be well nigh impossi ble for him to be kept down in the strug gle for a competency for his declining years. "On one occasion a young man. who was just about to embark on the voyage of a business career, came to me with the query, 'What WOULD YOU SUGGEST TO ME that I should follow?' 'Basket-making is a good occupation if stuck to,' was my reply, 'and if you want to be successful, Itersevere in whatever you undertake, tut when you are making a good thing of one business, don't be tempted by the allurements of another line to desert a certainty for something that is problem atical to say the least.' "Another point that I would like to im press upon young men is that they should acquire the habit of saving some thing out of their earnings. It may be that out of a §100 a year they could only save §10, but that is a good idea to culti vate.and not live up to every penny and even go beyond the danger line into debt, in my career 1 have endeavored to live up to this principle, and among the many who started here in St. Paul a quarter of a century ago, my observa tion has been that the saving ones would always come out on top. "As indicative of the confidence re posed in me, I trust 1 may be pardoned for quoting an incident that occurred shortly after the war closed. But 1 must go back a little first. "While in Louisiana just before the rebellion broke out, 1 had a little money and was urged to invest it in a sugar plantation, paying a part down and the balance on the balance on the instal ment plan. But it had entered into my head that the Northwest was the place to invest money for a sure return, and that speedily, too, and 1 declined the proposition to become one of the South ern aristocracy, for such was the plane of the sugar planter. " 'No,' said 1, 'my money is going West with me. and 1 venture to predict that in side of ten years 1 can return to Louisi ana and buy the largest sugar planta tion in the state, and pay cash for it, too.' "Subsequently the gentleman who wished me to go into the sugar-raising business with him became a colonel in the Confederate army, and the close of hostilities found him very much poorer in pocket than when he started out from home with his regiment. "He disposed of his land, however, re ceiving upwards of $35,000 for it, and he sent it out to me to invest for him. I put it in St. Paul real estate, and to-day that sum of money has realized up wards of half a million dollars. ONE PIECE OF PROPERTY in particular, opposite the Kyan hotel, which 1 bought for $700, only the other day its owner refused $25,000 for it. "When the advisability of sending the 135,000 was questioned, and especially a distance of 2,000 miles from Lousiana, the investor merely said to the object ors, '1 am satisfied to let my friend at St.. Paul have the money to do with it absolutely as he sees fit.' "This showed his confidence in my integrity, and throughout life in all my business transactions 1 have endeavored to imbue those with whom I have been brought in contact with precisely the same estimate of my character that my friend in Louisiana entertained. It is also a good thing to look ahead in making in vestments, and this will be attested by the experience of a number of the early settlers in St. Paul. Some people ridiculed the idea of coming out beyond what was termed the borders of civili zation attempting to start a city, but from the outset 1 was confident of suc cess, and the same feeling was enter tained by those with whom 1 was as sociated. "All the money that I could command was put into St. Paul real estate, for 1 was convinced that if the great city promised did not come in my time, it would in season to benefit my posterity, and hence I looked out for their interests as diligently as 1 would for my own, and my fondest expectations were realized. "Hence 1 say, to become a prosperous man of business, and especially in this Western country, when the opportunities presented are so numerous, all that a man has to do in order to accomplish such a result is to STICK TO 111 . VOCATION, whatever it may be, deal fairly with his fellow men, and he will earn and com mand respect and confidence it what ever undertaking he may seek to enlist their interest. •'Set up perseverance and integrity as life SUNDmIsSUE^PAGES 17 TO 20. the keystones of the structure, and it will be wisely and permanently estab-. lished, even if great wealth should not be the much desired ad unct. "This is a country of wonderful possi bilities for the industrious and ener getic, and every day only increases the chances for a persevering, straightfor ward man of business." ___.. Mitchell Dreads "Fanchon." New York Graphic. 1 was talking to a member of Maggie Mitchell's company the other day, and he says that the way that little lady dreads a performance of "Fanchon" is pitiful. It is still the piece she has to rely on to make her money; she scarcely expects to more than keep even while playing other things, so bent is everybody on wait, ing to see her Fanchon. She has been before the public in that part twenty six years— she tells it herself— and her houses are still crowded for that per formance. Once on the stage, once in the first scene, she says that for the time being all distaste vanishes, and she is simply Fanchon, as she has been— with intervals for rest and refreshment — all these years. But before she goes on her loath ing of the part really makes her ill, and it increases with each successive per formance. In the day all the company understands that she does not want to hear it spoken of, or, above all, she can't be induced to hear the music of the famous "Shadow Dance" hummed. She hates the' sight of lithographs or bills of herself in the part. JEWELS AND FINE RAIMENT Gold and Precious Stones Worn by St. Paul Men. THEIR FAVORITE CLOTHES.

SAINT PAUL, MINN., SUNDAY . MORNING, MAY 27, TWENTY PAGES. JUST LIKEPA AND MA. The Boys and Girls of. St. Paul Who Handle Their Own Steeds. Many Fancy Turnouts to Be Seen Every Day on the Avenues. Who So Many Ladies Who Drive Carry Danger With Them. The Art of Horse Taming Not One of Their Accom plishments. F I WERE to draw a picture of the avenging angel, I would put her in a cart, guiding a horse along Third street. There is no escaping a woman so placed. She sits indifferent, uncon scious as fate, and certain only in con tinuance of action. How she will act, when she will turn, from which side she will strike you, none can tell. Disput ing the right of way with a cable car is infinitely to be pre- ferred to coming in contact with her. The cable gives you a line on which to base your defense. The woman gives you nothing— not even the hope of dig nified exit from this sinful world. She has you bobbing about in such ridicu lous fashion that, in the jaws of death, you blush over the prospect ot sprawl ing into eternity on all fours. If finally you are saved it is a miracle. She did not design it, and you could not. It is hard to conceive how a tender-hearted creature, who would not willfully murder a mouse, can de liberately turn herself loose on the traveling community to become a life destroying element. Being scared to ' death and killed are simple distinction without difference.and when you escape being run over you are badly enough frightened so that you don't care if friends do send flowers and begin to catalogue your virtues. The one thing that protects the female "whip" from the suspicion of diabolism, is her unconsciousness. It is the un consciousness of innocence, and inno cence is only ignorance with its Sunday clothes on. As with all faults of woman, when yon look squarely at it, men are to blame for her awkward driving. They take no pains to teach her better. The man who will bother to teach his wife or sister how to drive is as scarce as the one who will show her how to play billiard*?. Then because she zigzags across the road in the one case, and plays all over the floor in tin other, he talks learnedly about inherent inequality of the sexes. Driv ing schools as well as riding schools should be established, where neglected woman may obtain the education selfish man will not give her. The number of young people who possess handsome little turnouts is unusually large in St. Paul. . It is the exceptional boy who does not take as naturally to a horse as a duck to water, and it is the excep tional girl who takes after him. Any fine day little misses are seen jaunting about the city in small carts drawn by ponies, displaying the same lack of training in handling the ribbons that their mammas and big sisters do. They jolt along, either with the reins falling loosely and carelessly over the horse's sides, or sit with arms extended over the dash-board, sawing on the reins, slapping their beast's back with them, and chirping a betrayal of their fear to use the whip. The most fearless young horsewoman in town is Miss Margaret liugg. She is quite on the order of Amelie Rivers in her determined mastery of any animal she takes in hand. Some time ago she and Flora Auerbach assumed to" train a donkey belonging to the latter. They persevered heroically until their end was accomplished, and they tell com placently that they wore "out a dozen whips in doing it. Little Miss Pugg is the proud possessor of an Indian pony, which she calls Thistle. He is a frisky fellow and fond of mischief, whether carrying his young mistress on his back or in the pretty dog cart before which she drives him. lie has thrown her several times and upset the cart more than once. The first time he threw her he landed the little lady against a tree and galloped back home, leaving her to follow afoot. She gathered up her. hab it, set her teeth, and with fire in her eyes pursued him to his stable, and there beat him till her arm was tired and her whip useless. He remembered the lesson and has never left her since. If through carelessness now she oc casionally loses her seat, she alights on her feet and is back in the saddle . in a moment, continuing her ride a trifle more enthusiastic for the diversion. She has taught a great many of her playmates to ride and drive, and can check off the good and bad points of a horse in a way that bewilders the unin structed. Master George Rugg shares Thistle with Margaret, and is the true brother of his sister in fearlessness of spirit. While South this winter a powerful horse ran two miles with him along the beach, and finally planted him in the sand uuhurt. When the young man's terrified elders came upon him, he would have nothing to say to them, and spent the next day in bed, not because he suffered any injuries, but only because he was disgusted with life for having permitted anything in the shape of a horse to get* the better of him. Ex-Mayor O'Brien's children, Dick and Sadie, own a cunning pair of Shetland ponies, named Dame and Sultan, which they drive before a "smart" two-seated carriage, The only pony in town smaller than Dame and Sultan is owned by Charley Foster, who drives it before a little dog ca.it. Julia Noyes, accompanied by her cousin, turns out on the boulevard often in a dog cart, drawn by a sorrel pony that wears heavy English harness, and answers to the name Gypsy. Anita Fulness is a rather afraid of the large bay pony she drives before a double cart. Kate Crittenden and Nellie Bigeloware frequently seen with her. Grace King Is mistress of a mustang that is amiable and paces in something over 2:40. She hitches him to a dog cart and commonly drives alone. Crawford Livingston, Jr., has an especially swell rig. He drives a per fectly white pony in heavy harness be fore a double cart, and is fond of the society of his sisters and Basham Pun nette. Rena Ames calls a Shetland pony hers and drives him before a swell dog cart. He is named Bonus, wears a fashionable harness and looks quite proud of himself when his little mistress takes her mother and younger sister out for an airing. Willie Finch drives a large Shetland pony called Dot before a boy's light wagon. Bun Ilersey has one of the prettiest Shetland ponies in town. It is named for himself, wears a handsome harness and is driven before a boy's light wagon. Bob Bushnell drives an Indian pony, and generously takes all the boys in town by turn with him. Bay and Maud Moon drive in a small phaeton, drawn by a large white pony. Hattie Johnson owns a black Shet land pony called Turk that is famous for its kicking. Its vicious little hind legs are only kept within limits by a strap. She drives in a small dog cart, and is often accompanied by Dottie Hughson. Arthur Clark drives a bay pony named May, before a dotr cart, and never sits with such an air of importance as when his mother is by his side. Bob Heard's pony is bay and has been christened Puss. He drives it before a double carriage, and almost every Sun day takes his sisters out with him. He also rides a great deal, and when he is not. in the saddle his sister Mamie is frequently seen. Bessie Shirk is a pretty little eques trienne. She rides a white pony and wears a blue cloth habit and jockey cap. The Warner children drive a lively gray pony before a double carriage. It is an easy riding animal ami often carries Master Harry Warner on its back. Cornelia and Edward Saunders own a sorrel pony, which they put in heavy harness and drive before a yellow cart. The Coleman children have a gray pony, which they both drive before a cart and ride. Alice Monfort is a brave young horse woman. She rides a mustang called Nellie that is a most vicious beast. It kicks at everything- but its fair mis tress, whose firm hand and ready whip have taught it what good manners it possesses. Jack Merriam owns an ill -behaved pony, which once ran five miles with him. He rides it, as well as drives it before a handsome cart. Alice Dawson has two Shetland ponies, which she drives before a pretty double carriage. Recce Newport has not a great deal of confidence in the bad-dispositioned pony he possesses, and drives before a light buggy. George Finch is the envied owner of a handsome full-bred Kentucky single footer, which he mounts in riding cos tume, cane whip. top. boots and all. Arthur McKey owns a black horse which he rides well. Low Whiting has a mouse-colored pony, named Jack. It is a good runner, and its young master can always ride as fast as it can run. Master Whiting is in demand as a partner among the girls. He is cool and quick in an emergency, and knows how to ward off an accident n a way that has endeared him to timid equestriennes. The Stickney girls have a turnout that is a symphony in yellow. The same tone characterizes horse, harness and dog cart. Rufus Jefferson rides an excitable black horse, which he manages very skilfully. Herman Oppcnheim is a good rider and a swell one. He wears full riding costume and mounts a small mouse-col ored pony. Headley and Laura Grant ride a couple of black horses. The young lady is rather afraid Of hers, and gets no sympathy from her brother, who is com monly seen urging her to the front as only a man can. The Griggs children drive a bay Indian pony that is lively but amiable. Master Theodore rides it a great deal, and Miss Annie, with Julia Gallup, drives it in fashionable harness before a double cart. . Mary Brown is a bit afraid of the horse she rides, and seldom ventures from a walk. Edith Hand is one of the most accom plished and swellest equestriennes in town. She rides a handsome black horse named Prince, and wears a very fash ionable habit. Marion Craig mounts a black horse, and is a fearless, graceful rider. Harry and Maggie Castle have a couple of Shetland ponies which they ride, with a colt, that looks like a big Newfoundland, dog, frisking along be side them. Sidney Dean and his sister own a spirited gray pony in common, which they ride well. The Winter children have an Indian pony, and the Cochran children a large sorrel nag that is the soul of amiability. The Lindeke boys are good riders,and are joint possessors of a black horse which they do not permit to become creaky for want of use. ■*•"•*■ A New York Tenement. How the man and wife who rent the top floor back get along is seldom known to the occupants of the top floor front. How the old woman who sleeps in the kitchen manages to exist is likewise un known to her neighbors. In fact, the * woman on the second floor may be dying and the people on the floor above know nothing of it. A reporter * visited a large tenement house in East Fifty-ninth street last evening. The sidewalk swarmed with dirty-faced children. There was crape on the door, —black and white— at which children were gazing in solemn wonder as it fluttered in the breeze. Somebody in the house was dead, but none of the • children knew who had died. A physician attached to a dispensary in the -neighborhood came to visit a sick woman on the top floor, and the reporter went with hirur From one of the front rooms came cries. It was the bereaved wife weeping for her dead husband. • From another room came sounds of laughter and the music " of an accordion. A lot of young peo ple were gathered in the rooms directly over where the heartbroken wife was. weeping. On the next floor lived the physician's patient. She was very sick, he said, and should have perfect rest. As the doctor and reporter were leav- • ing the sick woman's apartment, two boys entered with pails of coal, which 1 they had stolen from passing coal carts on the street. , _ — i — m How It Works in Our Climate.

THE DARLING BABY, The Amount of Money it Costs .;! to Dress the Blessed Thing- Nicely. An Outfit Is -Valued All the Way Between $7.50 and $200. Fond and Indulgent Mothers Scorn to Buy the Cheap est Goods. A Handsome, Neatly Dressed Baby the Most Beautiful Creation in the World. "A woman who is economical in pur chases for herself will buy the most ex pensive baby clothes she can find." The speaker has purchased wardrobes for infants in London, -Paris and New York. As she spoke she held in her hand a baby's dress made of fine nainsook. The tiny garment was pearl white in cOlor and very long. Every few inches there were three or four insertions of lace, and this was continued up to within three inches of the band. The waist of the dress was composed almost entirely of lace. The only additional trimming was white satin ribbon. The price is $25. The reporter asked the saleslady to produce a cloak suitable to be worn over the dress. "Here it is; price, $50. It is made of the finest_silk in the market. The em broidery on the skirt and cape, you see. is elaborate, and. what is more interest, ing, is the fact that it is all handwork. Tiie tint is cream color; the lining is fine-quilted satin. The ribbons with which it is finished are of the finest quality." "A babe with a $25 dress and a $*0 cloak should have an outfit to cor respond." ."The next article, then, is a skirt, also of nainsook, and made to cor respond with the dress. It should be trimmed freely with lace at $1 a yard. There should be lace ruffles and fine tucks.. Abo handwork." ..*-._.• --"Wh y)-handwork?' " . "Because it took six times as Jong to i do it by hand. Everything now is hand work. lam not venerable, but 1 can remember when Indies were as proud of machine-stitched goods as they now the new arrival's trousseau. are of hand-stitched garments. The fashion is.growing into nearly all de partments. The shoe for which ladies pay the highest price now is a hand stitched one. This skirt costs $10. A pait of the outfit for the same supposi titious infant is a flannel skirt of silk warp, enlbroidered twelve or fourteen inches up. It is reasonably priced at $7, considering the work expended on it." ftUflHpMi "How old is this child?" "As it wears long dresses it can hardly be more than six months. You haven't half the outfit yet. The infant must have a flannel blanket with em broidered border and elaborately em broidered corner pattern. The blanket —some mothers speak of it as a 'shawl' —should be about one and a quarter yards square. It will cost SO. The baby's bonnet should be of silk. Or it may have an embroidered cap or one of crochet silk, handwork. The cost is $5. Shirts, or vests, should be of the best silk, and the little stranger will need half a dozen, for which his parents or some doting relative will be taxed $14." "The infant has now cost $117." "Some slips of fine cambric are the next requirement. Or they may be made of nainsook and trimmed with embroidery. What are these slips? Little common dresses. They vary in cost; about $12 for three is the quality fA THE BABY'S KEGIME__\_XS. suitable for this infant. Night gowns of fine cambric; made to button all i the way down the front, can be had for $6.

They may be finished in differ ent . colored flannel, which is finely ? inked. The cost of the three . Is $10. 'he outfit also calls for a sack to be worn loosely outside of the dress. There may iferthree of these — of crotched silk for $4, one of . cross-barred zephyr for $3, and one of fine-made flannel for $3. total $10. "The next item is what is called a 'barrow' coat of flannel. It is embroil ered and sells for $2. A plain flannel [ skirt is sold for $2.25, and silk bootees for $1.50. The required assortment of ABOUT THE PROPER THING. knitted bands to accompany this outfit cost $4.50. Then we come to the basket toilet, with brush, comb, powder and a variety of baby fixings. The basket toilet is worth $10." "And that settles it?" "Hardly. In beautiful weather like this the child must have out-door air, and that involves the purchase of a baby carriage. One with an- enameled cane body, with side fenders, upholstered in imported silk brocade goods, piped and pointed, with satin back lining, spring cushion seat, silk-satin parasol, lined, with silk-lace edge, standard gear and patent adjustable rod, costs $34."

This is an imaginary baby, to be sure, but some people with real ones think noth ing of spending that sum on an outfit for a newcomer. Let us suppose, now, that we have a customer who wants an other kind of a wardrobe case where strict economy must be observed. A cream-colored cashmere cloak with em broidered cape costs $2.75. a neat dress of nainsook embroidered is sold for $1.75, three slips cost $1, three skirts 75 cents, three shirts $1, and a cunning 'barrow' coat 75 cents. This baby's snug and comfortable outfit costs a grand total of $7.50." "Do you sell many of the cheaper kind?*' "No;* because the demand is for a wardrobe which costs more.". "What are the figures of the average demand?" "Prom $48 to $58; or, speaking within bounds, from $50 to $75. The range is a wide one, from $7.50 to $170, leaving out the carriage. When a lady comes in and expends more than $200 on one outfit 1 feel as if the amount in excess of that figure was almost thrown away. A really charming outfit can be had for $00. 1 have seen some very expensive cloaks for babies. One that 1 recall in New York was of pearl white, em broidered in pearl white silk. The work on it represented one woman's toil for over three months. The price was $175, and, in view of the work on it, it was cheap. You * would be sur prised to know what some plainly dressed mothers cheerfully expend in dressing their latest baby. Proud? Well, when I see the lines in some of the motherly faces, I don't envy them the delight they take in making their cherished ones as attractive as possible. If there is a beautiful creation in this world it is a handsome, neatly-dressed baby." _ Pin Money For Girls. Chicago Herald. Poor men who are fathers think they cannot afford to spare their girls a monthly stipend. Yet somehow or other those children are clothed, shod and educated. Clothes, shoes and books cost money. Why not estimate what they do cost and allow the child the experience of buying those needed things herself? If she is convinced that this is all she will re ceive and she must make it cover all ex penses, there will be no foolish outlays. She will consult with older and wiser heads until her feet are sure of the way. A boy, seven or eight years old, lives with his widowed mother, who is a schoolteacher, and his grandmother, a Bible reader, employed to read to in mates of charitable and government institutions, neither of these occupa tions being very remunerative. The lad receives his allowance for spending money (the tremendous sum of 10 cents a week) from another grandmother, a richer woman. One day he came run ning into her house, exclaiming: "Oh, grandma; won't you trust me for my allowance two weeks ahead? Grandma Jones has to go and read to the poor, and will have to walk to the train, unless I can give der 20 cents. I told her I knew you would trust me. Please do." The child . felt that that money was really his, and he could calculate to do good with it. He " could be trusted to deny his little wants for two weeks, al though he was a goody-goody kind of a lad, but asservative and selfish as American boys and girls are apt to be. Nothing is more tiresome than the continued demand of children: "Mamma, please give me a penny?" "Mamma, won't you give me 10 cents?" "Mother, I would like a dollar to-day," and so on as they grow up. If they know that the sum they receive every Monday morning is all they can have for a week such teasing entreaties are done away with. ... -v- : Girlish But Strong. . Mme.
