Borne of the shrewdest merchants in this down will tell yoo that there is assuredly an element of chance which sets for or against men in business affairs. One of the richest men in this country before his death told the most fascinating of tales regarding the play of chance in his experience. This was the late Senator Miller, of California, tie was a man of superior business qualification, of pretty shrewd judgment, and far sighted, yet when he came out of the army everything that he turned his hand to failed, and as a means of support he was obliged to seek a government omce, and he was rejoiced when Grant gave him the custom house at San Francisco. In that omco Senator Muler hoped to be able to save enough in the course of a few years to put him on bis feet again. but be found that be was sliding backward. He could not see bow or why, and he firmly impressed with the belief that he was born under an unlucky star. See now how luck changes, and how its chance may shift about like a weathercock. One day there name into Mr. Miller's office a briny tar, with tbe smell of whale oil on his clothes and the roll of a sea dog in his legs. He laid on the collector's desk a bit of fur, i and he said that he had captured that skin himself and knew where there were millions more. He had a gentle proposition to make. tH&t the collector should charter and victual a ship and "go snooks" with him in the profit that he thought would be obtained from selling these skins. He would not tell in what part of the sea he found the animals, and bis proposition was about as unbusiness like and bare brained as any that Mr. Miller had ever listened to. His businesa instinct told bim to dismiss the man, but as he rubbed his hand on tbe fur, which was smoother than the best silk velvet, it occurred to him to make the venture. He interested some of his friends in tbe scheme and they sent the cap tain, with great doubt as to their sanity in so doing, off into the mvstery of the Polar sea, and thus the great Alaska Seal Furcorn pany was organized, and the shuttlecock of Miller's fortune shifted from the keen east wind of disappointment to the bracing west erly winds of magnificent prosperity. The curious thing about it was that from that day Miller never made a business in vestment that was not profitable, although to many of those which he did make be did not bestow one-half the attention and cau tion which he had previously given toothers that were unfortunate. Senator Jones, of Nevada, is another of those whose experience leads him to believe in the doctrine of chance as an element of business men's success or misfortune. Into the great Hudson river tunnel, into his hotel properties, into bis Washington investments, in fact into every thing east of tbe Rocky Mountains which the senator has put bis money, fate set against him, and he has seen millions melt away like icicles in the sunlight But in a chance investment which he almost thoughtlessly made in mining properties in tbe British possessions and in Alaska, as well as some apparently worthless stock in Ne vada mining property which a few years ago be would have seen burned up without a sigh, chance lias brought him a new fortune. Tbe man who prescribes unto himself any set of rules, or takes as a model the career of any man, will be very likely to meet with a "slip up." There was A T. Stewart, who as cribed his success to the most patient atten tion to trivial details, but if William R. Grace undertook to run his colossal business as Stew art did, be would be frantic in a week. Stewart not only gave orders, but followed them up to see if they were executed. Mr. Grace employs men who be knows will carry out in detail tbe plans which be conceives. That is also in some respects Mr. Gould's habit. During tbe great southwestern strike. which Mr. Gould's property was so seriously imperiled, he was asked why he seemed to rest so easily, said be: We em ploy Mr. Hoxie. He keeps me informed as I tOkresults, and it is his business to look after tbe detaiLs." A colossal brain racking busi ness it was, too, and it undoubtedly killed Hoxie. Bat Mr. Gould, had he adopted the methods of some successful business man. would have thought it iiecessary to have penetrated all those details himself, and that would have brought on neuralgia like a paralytic shock. Just so with Commodore vanderbilt. and we can illustrate it no better than to repeat one of Chauncey M. Depew's stories. Said be: "The commodore heard of a young man who was a f reirht agent, and a remarkably bright and successful one, on the Erie rail road. The chap had given evidence that be comprehended that the business of freight trazisportatlon was something more than the mere hauling of goods from one town to an other. In his limited field the young chap had shown that be possessed genius for an interstate or national traffic manager. That was just the kind of bud that the commodore wanted to blossom on the Central system. So be got Jim Rutter away from the Erie and paid him 1.,0u0 a year as traffic man ager of the New York Central Not long after Rutter took charge there arose difficult problem, and one in volving tbe interest of tbe Cen tral road very greatly. Ratter went to tbe commodore with it The old man looked at him a moment and then said, 'Jim, what does the Central road pay you $15,000 a year forf 'To manage the traffio department,' Jim replied. Do you expect I am going to earn your salary Tor your said tbe commodore. Jim caught the point. turned on his heel, went away and solved the problem. If he hadn't solved it rightly the Central road had no use for him," Yet there are lots of successrul business men who would have taken it as a compliment tp have been thus approached by Rutter had they been in Vanderbilt's place. That great merchant prince, John Wana- maker, of Philadelphia, might have been a tailor barker to tbis day had be tried to get rich on lines laid down by others. He adopted just one motto: 'Do ye next thing, and has now reached the point where the next thing s to be depositinir of bigger sums at the end of one day s business than he did the day before.

Hollis W Field in Detroit Free Press. Thought It Was a Ticket. The greenest man I ever saw on a railroad was a conductor of a suburban passenger train that i rode on from St Louis a few days ago. I guess he was a cousin of some big official, and had lived in tbe woods all his Ufa Somehow I had expended more money than 1 had calculated upon, and when I took my seat I found in my pocket but a fifty cent "shin plaster," which I was pre serving as a memento. Whi n tbe conductor came to take up tickets I handed him this. 1 had pulled my bat over my eyes m a negli gent way, but judge of my surprise to bear the three familiar clicks, and those repeated twice. 1 ben he walked away. 1 looked at him in astonishment, and asked him to stay his band. "What in tbe world are you punching holes in that fifty cent piece fori Give me my change. rt "Why," he replied, innocently, "I thought that was one of those new style lithograph tickets, good for fifty miles, and that you wanted to ride it out." I explained and got my change, but it shook my fractional currency proclivities mightily. G lobe-Democrat Don't Exverimen.

Telegraph, Dubuque, Iowa. The Staves of Authority. In the collection of an acquaintance of mine are some curious relics. A portion of them is two staves of polished reddish wood. each about as tall aa an ordinary man. Tbe staves have iron ferrules, a velvet covered hand grip, and are topped with a gilt carv ing intended to suggest a flame burning in the bowl of a torch. They were carried years ago by the aldermen of this city, and were the chief among the badges of the ald ermanic office. In those days, I fanry, alder men wore robes, too, so that, in uniform and with their staves of authority, they must have presented quite an imposing appear ance. As time wore on the staves were re duced in length, till they became mere truncbeona They still, however, kept up to the torch style of construction, as may be seen from samples of them in this same col lection.

A wicked and murderous walking cane was displayed in an avenue store the other day. Its hollow covering was punctured with at least twenty-five holes, and behind these were concealed as many sharp steel blades. The object of the cane was at once apparent Suppose an unfriendly hand seized it on a dark night I be owner of the stick would simply draw it backward, and lof from out the little holes the knives would fly to do their bloody, lacerating work. No footpad would grasp that cane more than once. Tbe principle of the invention is not new.
