HOW THE MONEY GOES.
by john g. saxs,
How goea the money 1—Well,
Fm sure it ian't hard to tell;
It goes for rents and water ratal.
For bread and butter, coal and grates,
Rata, «apa, carpeta, hoops and hose,
And that's the way the money gcee.
How goes the money T—Nay,
Don't erejybody know the mfl
It goes for bonneta, ooata and capea,
Silba, satins, moalina, velvet*, crapes,
Bhawb, ribbena, fare, forbelows,
How «opa the money?—Sore,
I with the waya were aomewhat fewer,
It goea for.wagea, taxea, debts,.
It goes for presents, goea foe bets,
For painta, pomade and ean de rose,
And that'athe Fay the money goes.
How goea the money T—Now,
Tve acaree begun to mention haw;
It goea for feathera, lacea, rings,
Toya, dolía, sad other baby's thinga,
Whips, whistles, candles, bella and bows,
And that's the way the money goes.
How goes the money ?—Come,
I know it don't go for rum;
It goes for schools and chimes,
It goes for charity sometimes,
Fur missions and auch things aa those,
And that's the way the money goes.
How goea the money f—There,
I'm out of patience, Í declare!
It goea for playa and diamond pina,
For public alms and private sins,
For hollow shams and silly shows,
And that's the way the money goes.
THE VALUE OF MONEY; .
Hoaxed into a Fortune!
A TALE OF SPECULATION "
" There Is a tide in (be affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune,"
Everybody was speculating—coal
stocks, copper stocks, oil wells,
machines, enterprises, and schemes
were brilliant ánd prosperous.
The stock-list in the newspapers'
was a column in length. Men who
'went in' with one thousand 'margin'
for a fiver, came out with twenty
thousand, a span of horses, and a
directorship in four or five companies,
in a fortnight. Who does not remem-
ber the the lively day3 of 1863-4.
It was about these days, as the
almanacs say, that three young men

who regularly read the city papers,
and visited the metropolis two or
three times a week, sat together in a
neighboring town railing at fate.
"Ona can do nothing without
money." said Ginseng; " a specula-
tion, the conception of which would
do honor to Spencer of the Boston
Brokers' Board, Jerome, or Bill Davis,
coming from a poor devil like me
would attract no notice."
" I," said Pica, " have finished an
article which would establish my re-
putation as a journalist, if 1 could
only find a newspaper to bny it."
*' I have asked for an increase of
salary," exclaimed Denim, the third
youngster, anxious to contribute to
the chorus of lamentation, " and he
told me that for ^600 a year he could
get more clerks than he wanted."
" Now, just look at Jack Hayseed,
one of the greenest fellows in this
place, who went to Boston last fall;
he's speculated somehow in oil or
copper stocks, .and came riding , into
town yesterday with a pair of spank-
ing grays. They nay ha has made
ten thousand dollars. He must have
done it on credit, for he never had
any efesh beyond his salary of $700
"It would not so much matter/'
said Ginseng, "if besides being poor,
we did not seem poor. Could only
one of us be thought rich'
" What is the use of the shadow
without the substance]*' demanded
" Much," said Pica. « I agree
with Ginseng; *' the Bhadow some-
times makes the substance. The next
best thing to capital is credit."
" Especially," returned Ginseng,"
" the credit of having a good fortune.
Have none of us a rich uncle at the
"One of mine went to Texas, or
Mexico, I forget which," ventured
Denim, " and he never came back."
" Capital! that is all one requires "
exclaimed G'oseng; we will con-
jure up this uncle of yours—or, could
we not kill him ? Yes : Jabez Den-
im, formerly of this place, who went
to Santa Fe in 1846, deceased,
leaving a plantation and half interest
in a silver mine, worth five hundred
thousand dollars per annum, to his
well-beloved nephew, Charles Den-
The trio laughed at the joke, and
made merry over a bowl of punch
sent for to do honor to the testator.
Picalóst no time in concocting, and
afterwards publishing, in a local news-
paper* full account of the fortune,
that had been left the modest Deninv
It read, when in type, as follows:
"We understand that news has ju&t
been received of the decease of Jabez
Denim, Esq., many years ago a resi-
dent of this town, and > for some time
a trader in Boston, who went to
Mexico in 1845. Mr. Denim, it is
said, died immensely wealthy; he
owned an immense fortune in planta-
tion stock, &c., but his chief wealth
was a half interest in one of the most
productive silver mines of the country,
the annual profit of which is reported
at over half a million. We learn that
the whole of this immense^wealth
goes to his only surviving relative,
Charles Denim, Esq., who, by this
freak of fortune, becomes one of the
richest men in the State. We con-
gratulate our young townsman, etc."
The' publication of this, extravagant
as it was, bad an unexpected effect.
The next day sundry friends dropp-
ed in to compliment- the newly rich
man. He endeavored to undeceive
them ; bnt they would not take a
denial. In vain he assured them it
was a hoax; it was|aof no use.
Several people remembered old Jabez
very well, and knew he went out to
Mexico. Among others came Charles'
tailor, whom he owed a small sum.
A conversation followed, which
may be taken as a sample of many :
" Good morning Schneider.
I suppose yon are come for those
" I hope, sir, you don't think I
came for such a trifle as that. No.
sir; I came to take your orders for a
suit of mourning."
" A suit of mourning V'
" Yes, sir. Dark brown frock, for
morning wear, black trowsers and
waistcoat; also full dress suit to
"At the present moment, Mr.
" I hope, sir, I have done nothing
to forfeit your patronage."
" But I repeat, I have received no
maaey at alL1'
" I hope, sir, you won't mention
such a thing; there is no sort of
hurry,'' exclaimed the tailor, who
buisly employed himself in taking
Charles' measure with slips of paper.
The latter's wardrobe was not
sumptuous, and he said nothing
"My dear sir," said the next
visitor, " I have a very" great favor
to request of you. Buy my house.
You are very rich; you must be on
the look-out for safe and lucrative
investments. Twenty-thousand dol-
lars are nothing for yon—a mere
fraction of your eeiate. With me the
c*ne is different. I thought Mr.
Howsnnter had made up Ids mind to
parchase the premises, and now, I
hear, he has changed his intention.
What is to become of me f I have
heavy demands to meet, and I don't
know where the money is to come
" I bny your house," said Charles.
Why, it would be madness to think
of such a thing."
" Madness! no such thing j yon
could not find a better investment
anywhere. In two years, with trifling
repairs, it would be worth douíSe its
present value; you will never see
such a good opportunity again. Say
' done * and I'm off."
And off he went, leaving Charles
no time to say a word.
Two hours after, in walked Mr.
Howsunter, evidently not in the best
" Really, sir," he began, "you
have taken me quite by surprise.
That house is indispensable to me.
I reckoned on it as if it were mine,
and only offered eighteen thousand
dollars because the owner is em-
barassed, and I felt sure that the
owner would be obliged.to take them.
With yon, sir, the case is different;
so I came to ask if' you will let me
have it for twenty-five tKmnmnrl dol-
live thousand dollars dropping all
at once into the lap of a poor fellow
who had to work hard to gún five
hundred in a year 1 Charles was
dumbfounded; - •
" I cannot give you an answer just
now, sir," he 8aid,; " bqt if yon win
take the trouble to .call again at five
111 see what I can do."
At a quarter to five Mr. Howsnnter
reappeared. Charles said to him:
" I should tell you, or, that I had
no thoughts of buying till the owner
prevailed on me to do so. Ygu say
yon want the house; any other will
suit me equally as well, so I accede
to your terms."
" You shall have a check for the
amount at once," replied the pleased
Howsunter, apparently enchanted
with this way of doing business. " I
will Bettle with you; you arrange
with the present owner; my object
is to secure the property."
A check for twenty-five thousand
dollars 1 Charles wondered what he
could do with it After due delibera-
tion, he resolved ask advice. So
he wrote to the Boston Banking
House of Spelter & Co., who paid
him semi-annually the interest of a
thousand dollars, left'him a few years
before by a relative, saying that hav-
ing a large amount of money at his
command, he desired to knowhow he
could best invest it, and enclosed the
check for $25,000.
The following answer speedily
reached him, proving that the story
of his luck had reached State street:
Sib,—We are in receipt of your
esteemed favor of the 17th inst.,
which reached us just after the incep-
tion of a new movement in Water
power and Petherick stock, in which
our firm has an interest. Desirous
that our friends should have an oppor-
tunity of participating in an invest-
ment which we consider profitable,
we have taken the liberty of placing
a block, twenty thousand dollars'
worth, of stock to your credit. Should
that amount appear too considerable,
the rise of this stock admits of your
selling out at a premium.
We remain yours, sir, to command.
Speltkb & Co.
To this was added a postscript by
the head of the firm:
"We have heard with pleasure of
the recent good fortune that has
fallen to the lot of our old friend and
correspondent, and beg leave to offer
him our services as occasion may
require." "? 4
Twenty thousand dollars! Charles
let the paper fail in sheer amaze-
ment.—He trembled with fear of the
consequences. He at once wrote the
banker that the sum was much too
large. " I have received no money
from Santa Fe, and it would be im-
possible for me to meet my engage-
An answer came by return of post:
" We learn with regret that you
have misgivings with regard to Water
Power. According to your orders,
we have sold out half the- stock as-
signed to you, which brings you in
already a net profit of eight thousand
dollars. With regard to your property
in S*uta Fe, We are tea well acquaint-
ed with the delays which bequests
at such a distance must necessarily
involve to think for a moment that
you can be immediately put in pos-
session of your inheritance; but your
ample signature will -suffice to pro-
cure you all the money yon may re-
quire in the meantime. We take the
liberty of reminding you of the ad-
vantage of timely investments* lest,
when the legal arrangements are end-
ed, you should find difficulty in gett>
ing good interest for so large a capital.
With the hope that you may enter-
tain a better opinion of Water Power,
we hand you a prospectus of a new
coal company forming among some
of our mosfwealthy men. You will
please to observe, that, as calls are
only made at long intervals, it will
be easy for you to sell your shares,
should you change your mind, without
yinf* having occasion to make any |
payment.' We have placed $8,000
to your credit, and have the honor to
Eight thousand dollars! No doubt
the clerk had made some mirtake'in
tiie figures. Chuleas' position was
becoming embarrassing. Congratu-
lations poured in from all quarters,
especially when he made his appear-,
ance in black from head to foot The
Daily Gossip thought it right to pub-
lish a biographical sketch of his
uncle; and the editor wrote to him
asking for further particulars. Ladies
connected with all sorts of societies,
begged that his name might be added
to their list of subscribers; and the
money he had paid for postage was
alarming. To escape from this ava-
lanche of inquiries he hastily departed
for Boston. Calling on Spelter & Co.,
he was received as heirs to laige
properties generally are.
" Sorry that you have such a poor
opinion of the Water Power and
Petherick," said Mr. Spelter; "there
has been a great rise; however, we
only sold out half of your lot."
"Would you have the goodness
to let me know what the present
value of the xemainder might be,"
. "Certainly, sir.; Petherick has
risen immensely. There is a corner;
if you sell out to-day you will, with
the proceeds of the last sale, have
from $40,000. to $45,000.
" Very well. You said something
about a coal company, I think."
" Yes; that is a good thing, ánd
outsiders are hungry for the stock,
and the shares have risen consider-
•' Can I sell out V
"Certainly; you have £00 at
twenty-five dollars profit; that will
bring yon about twelve thousand
five hundred dollars."
" Without any calls to pay ?"
" None yet."
" That seems strange, but you are
no doubc well informed. I should
like to find a secure investment for
these sums: would yon have the
goodness to tell me what would be
the best ?"
" You cannot have anything better
than United States five-twenties. I
know of nothing more secure; at the
present price of gold you can get a
large per cent, for your money. I
can easily understand that you would
be worried by such trifling details as
these; you will soon have more con-
siderable sums to look after."
" Then if I invest the combined
product of Petherick, the Coal and
Water Power stocks in the five-
twenties, what should I get a year?"
"Let me see. M—m—m; y6S,
about six thousand dolíais a,year in-
"Ah ! six thousand dollars a year!
And when can the sale and invest-
ment be made ?"
"To-morrow morning; that is, if
you will allow our firm to conduct the
"Certainly, in whom could my
confidence be better placed 1"
The broker made a polite bow.
"And now," said Charles, ((I
should feel obliged if you would have
the goodness to advance me a few
hundreds, as I am rather short for
"My dear sir, as much as you
require is at your service. How much
do you want—one, two, or four
thousand dollars 1"
" Thank you, five hundred will be
" May I hope, added the broker,
when Charles rose to take leave,
*' that our firm shall be favored by a
continuance of your patronage."
No period of Charles Denim's life
afforded pleasanter reflections than
this brief interview v. kit Mr. Spelter.
He then began to realize for the first
time that he was truly a rich man.
The $500 cash in hand settled the
In the meantime Pica and Ginseng
were shocked at the success of their
story, and were not a littled alarmed
at the sudden Journey which Charles
took to Boston, which was attributed
by othere to legal business respecting
his uncle's estate. They began to
fear that they had gone too far—that
he had come to regard the joke asa re-
ality. When he returned from Boston
they went tabim with solemn facea.
"My dear Charles," said Ginseng,
"you know your uncle is not dead!"
"I cannot bó sure of that," said
Charles, "for I am by no means con-
vinced of his existence."
Well, but you know this inheri-
tance is but ahoax."
"To tell you the truth I think we
are the only persons of that opinion.'
"We have done very «nog to orig
inate such an igveiitmii;te which we
are sincerely seriy." . ■ ->*« 1

the amount enclosed."
Charles's replies disarmed all
doubts of his solvency. ;
"Mr. Denim thanks Mr. Schneider
for having'at last sent in his account;
ánd encloses a check for ths amount."
This cool and unconcerned de-
meanor kept curiosity alive for a few
What a lucky fellow !" said one.
" Luck has nothing todo with ir,"
rejoined another, " he has played his
cards well and has won."
Once or twice Charles' conscience
troubled him; but a moment's reflec-

ertions had no sháre in his good
fortune, and that he owed it all to a
universal public worship of the
golden calf, and to the truth of Pica's
axiom, "the next best thing to capital
