It Could Not Happen Now.
Ere country ways had turnc 1 to street,
And long ere we were born,
A lad and lass would chance to meet,
And often she'd neglect her task:
The willows bowed to nudge the brook,
The cowslips nodded gay,
And he would look and slie would look,
And bath would look away,
Yet each and this is so absurd
Would dream about the other, -And
sh(T would never breath a word
To that good dame her mother,
Our girls are wiser now.
'Twas very quiet, 'twas very strange,
Extremely strange, you must allow;
Dear mc! how modes and customs change!
It cjuld not happen jiow.
sext day that idle, naughty las.?.
Would rearrange her hair,
And pondei long before the glass
Which bow she ought to wear;
"Why do you blush like that? "
And uow she'd haunt with footsteps slow
That mead with, cowslips yellow,
Down which she'd met, a week ago,
That stupid staring fellow.
Our girU are wiser now.
'Twas very quaint, 'twas very strange,
Entremely strange you must allow,
Dear me! how modes and customs change!
It could not happen now.
A ud as for him. that foolish lad,
He'd hardly close an eye,
And look so woe-begone and sad,
He'd make his mother cry.
"He goes," she said "from bad to worse!
My boy so blithe and brave,
Last night 1 found him writing verse
About a lonely grave!"
And lo! next day her nerves he'd shock
With laugh, and song, and caper;
And there she'd find a golden lock
Wrapped up in tissue-paper.
Our boys are wiser now.

How to Succeed.
The way to become successf ul busi
ness men from eVery stand point of
the word, both us to position and mo
ney making, is not to observe the fol
lowing suggestions, but to act in a di
rectly opposite manner :
If omce hours are set from 8 to 12,
and from 1 to 0, don't fail to make it
a point to arrive at the office anywhere
irom lo minutes to an hour late.
Watch the clock carefully, and try
to get out 5 to 10 minutes before 2,
and then come back from 10 to 30 past
1, or up to 2 p. m.
In the afternooirNpratch the clock
anxiously, and if vou see a chance to
escape ' without the eves of the man-
agement upon you, always make it a
rule to get out at 5 o'clock, or just as
much ahead of this as possible.
If you should not .happen to be em
ployed as a salesman, don't think of
such a thin; as asking a visitor in a
polite manner if anything can be done
to serve linn. He mignt tiimK you
were a salesman, and this might de
grade you in his estimation.
When a visitor comes in the store,
never walk forward to greet him. Al
ways let him walk from the frontdoor
to the inside of the office, and let him
state his business. This course makes
him feel very much at home.
If you are a salesman, don't fail to

Don't let him get the idea into his head
that you feel it as condescending on

ions to save tneir vaiuaoie lime anu

as they can, whether it is decently or
politely done or not.

nals. or to the customer, that vou are
bending everv energy in the direction
of selling goods, but rather stand upon
the high and lofty principle of being
something better than the average cus-

thing vou can, and make it as intricate

Y hen a-mistake occurs m an ac
count or order, don't undertake to ex
plain the matter away in a pleasant,
affable manner, upon the presumption
that the man who made the complaint
thinks he is right, but go at him
"hammer and tongs" in the shortest
and curt est way possible, and try to
impress him with the idea that he is al
wavs wrong and that you are always
riglit. This will give him an idea that
he is dealing with a pleaant lot of
people, and will encourage him to
bring his business to you the next
If you see anything going wrong in

meht would be glad to know of it, and
have it rectified; and if you should hap
pen to see samples in a disorderly con
dition, never speak of it or attempt to
put them in place yourself, as you
might soil your hands.
Don't attempt to do anything to
ward keeping the office in a clean and
orderly condition. A little confusion,
disorder and carelessness on the part of
nil make an omce beautitul ana at
tractive, and, of course what little dis
order yon exhibit personally does not
make any difference, and if you were
to straighten out something that some
one else did, you would be doing more

When you are on the road, make it
a point to get to S3me good hotel Fri
day or Saturday, and never leave it
until Monday. Time is little or no
consideration in a busy season, and it
is always desirable to spend one or two
days of the week "bracuig up" so that
you will be fresh on Monday morning.
As versatility is one of the neces
sary requirements in a good salesman,
expend your time in learning, to play
the latest hands at poker and other
fashionable games, smd be sure that
you always keep your capacity for
drinking liquor of all kinds up to the
average, else your brother salesmen on
on the road would recognize you as
"one of the finest." 1
Don't image that your principals
ever know anything about what you
are doing when you are away from

without reference to what your em

ACCIDENTS FROM THE BURSTING OF RES

Sugar piled High for a Big Squeeze.
X. Y. Herald, I9th. '
There is scarcely any room to doubt
that the sugar trust is preparing to
make a vigorous battle to sustain pres
ent prices, if not to force them still fur
ther up the scale.
Previous to the first advance in pri
ces a year ago the storage of large
quantities of refined sugar was a thing
unheard of. The price of granulated
sugar at the retail was then about six
and a half cents per pound; now the
same article sells at ten, cents per
The first large storage was made by
De Castro & Don tier, of No. 117 Wall
street, and at the time attracted much
attention in Brooklyn, where the su
gar was deposited with the warehouse
trust. When I called on the firm and
asked the meaning of this new move
ment the manager blandly denied that
the firm wsis storing sugar, and when
informed that the barrels bore the
brand of his firm innocently said he
supposed some purchaser was storing
the sugar. There was no prospect of
ai y advance. Oh, dear, no; quite the
reverse. In spite of these assur
ances a corner was made, and in a
few days refined sugar stood at seven
and a half cents and kept on advancing
until it reached ten, where it now
tor more that two months past the
trusthas been rushing the storage of
sugar with the warehouse trust, atidfcr7
day there is scarcely a dry, clean, avail
able warehouse on the Brooklyn water
front that has not some refiued sugar
stored in it.
Like the shrewd man that he is, E
B. Bartlett, manager of the warehouse
trust, took first innings by filling his
own stores, then .Watson's and I'ierre-
pont s i-tores came in lor their share,
and I have every reason for believing
thsit to-day there are at least two hun
dred thousand barrels of refined sugar
in the warehouses between Fulton and
Wall street ferries.
Nor is this all. About five weeks
ago the empty warehouses around the
Atlantic Basin came in for a share.
Over forty thousand barrels were
stored in Findlay's stores, north of the
entrance to the bassin, and 5,000 bar
rels was stored in the Commercial
Wharf of Laimbeers stores. The lat
ter weie too damp and dirty for the
puq o;e, and work there was discontin
ued. Since then work has been car
ried on at Findlay's. The north stor
es are practically filled and for the
past week enormous quantities of su
gar have been put into Findlay's
stores, south of the entrance to the
basin. Yesterday at times there
were not less than eight or ten
lighters discharging, soma on the
channel side and others on the basin
A man who has watched this storing
carefully said to me last night that
there were only one hundred thousand
barrels of refined sugar in the basin
then. The work was being rushed
with the utmost vigor, as though the
sugar trust was preparing for some

the market by still further advancing
the price of this necessary of life, and
it would be useless to attempt to deny
that a very bitter feeling is arising
against the magnates of the sugar
trfcst.- This bitterness is more appar
ent in Brooklyn than in New York,
because the operations of the trust are
more exposed to the public view. Sen
sible, steady men have said to me that
an attempt should be made to in
duce the public to do .without sugar

For, without the press, the' preachers

work; not a paper for the farm or the

least danger. -
A sheet folded otiee lengthwise, lalii
across the bed, wit! the upper-edge .
just touching the jiUora and the ends
tightly tucked wader the mattresses ,
win be touud to add greatly to the
patient's comfort. It does not wrinkle
like a' single sheet, and crumbs may be
reapily brushed off. .
The bed linen should be changed at
least once in three days, the blankets '
once a week, those that iavf been re
moved being hung in the open, air for
a few hours aud then thoroughly aired .
in a warm room.
In bathing the invalid should never
uncover too large a surface at once.
Pin a blanket round the shoulders,
fasten it behind, and remove the night .
dress under that. Put the hand under
blanket and sponge the skin, a small .
portion at a time. A woman's hair
should lie combed every day if she w
able to bear the fatigue. If it has be
come tangled a little sweet oil will
The cross sheet should invariably be
kept free from crumbs and rwrinkles,
as these are a frequent cause of bed
sores. Wherever the least rednesai
shows on the patient's body, the skin
must be at once bathed with alcohol
thoroughly dried, and dusted with pow
dered oxide of zinc
The car))et of a sick room should be
lightly brushed once a day with a wet
ted broom. The furniture and wood
work should be wiped with a damp
cloth. Dry dusters and feather brush
es are worse than useless.
Meals for invalids should look as
tempting as possible. The tray should
1 . 1 . . . 1
be covered with tne whitest napKin,
and the silver, glass, and china should
shine with cleanliness. The patient
should not4je disgusted by a display ut
too much food and should not be con
sulted beforehand as to ivhat he will
eat or drink. ' -
The nurse's dress should invariably
be neat, tasteful and pretty - Slippers-
or boots of felt should be worn. To
be continually smoothing the bed,
pestering the patient with sympathy,
and saying a dozen times an houc,
"how do you feel now?" is enough to.
drive a sick man wild.
Household troubles should be kept
far from the sick room. - Above all, an'
invalid or an apparent convalescent "
should be saved from his friends. One.
garrulous acquaintance may in half ail
hour undo the good work of a week of .
tender nursing. In long illnesses a
small table will be found indispensa
ble. Every cup, glass, spoon, and
utensil used should be taken out
of the room and washed as speedily as
possible. As to walking on tiptoe and
whispering, nothing can disturb a ner- ;
vous person more. Home Topics.
