'LUCK OF THE GAMBLER
SPECULATION A MARKED TRAIT
OF HUMAN CHARACTER.
Stock Broker's Observations in hl«
Business Have Revealed to Him
the Willingness There Is to
"Take a Chance."*
"It Is one of the inexplicable traits
of human nature,' remarked a stock
broker recently to the Spokane
Spokesman-Review, "to grab at a pos-
sibility In preference to a sure thing
which Is limited in the power of pay-
ing substantial dividends. We might
illustrate this by inverting the saying
into this: 'A bird in the bush la
worth two In the hand.' providing the
elusive bird in the bush has sufficient
ly brilliant and rare plumage.
"I find this to be the caae almost
Invariably in iny business. Of course,
the persons that 1 deal with have, for
the most part, a strain of gambler's
blood In them; naturally they are
reckless, for those two words are
synonymous In character.
"If I am selling stocks of two kinds,
ane the 'might be great* and the other
•proved fair and safe,' I can always
sell the former stock with compara-
tive ease, while the other (a conser-
vative investment) will go begging,
so to speak.
"It is not only the unsuspecting
widow who falls into tho snare of
these failures, either; often the catch
consists of a careful business man
It does not necessarily mean that be-
cause a venture fails, however. It was
not organized with good intention**.
Hut good Intentions do not make suc-
"The case of an unsophisticated
young man comes to my mind now
which demonstrates the queer trait
of grabbing at a phantom of gold In
preference to that of one of 'yard
"He wanted to make an Investment.
" 'Here are some Industrial bonds.'
I said, 'that are just the thing for a
young man; something that Is as
safe as government bonds. Although
they pay only 5V4 per cent., you have
years enough before you to wait until
you have gotten back your original
Investment and then you will have a
fl.niratlve tree still bearing fruit.
That will be a clear profit.'
"Hut he demurred.
" 'No,' he said creitfallenly. *1
din't want anything of that sort: I
want something that will go with a
smash and a bang!'
"'Which way?' I asked, smiling.
" 'Why,' his voice wavered, 'the
right way, of course. Haven't you
something that might make a capital-
ist out of me overnight?'
"Of courso, I am In business to sell
people what they want, but It sort of
went against my grain to see the
young fellow's hard earned money—
the first always is—go into something
which might more likely than not
prove to be a rank fiasco.
'"If that is what you wish.' I said,
'I have some stock in a much touted
mine, yet In Its embryonic state. The
reports are glowing; you may double
your Investment, perhaps triple it, be-
fore a year passes. Hut I warn you
"all is not gold that glitters."'

with the care freo exuberance of
youth, 'that's what 1 want.'

"The Jumping Frenchman."
Scientists have long been puzzled
to account for a peculiar affliction of
the nerves possessed by many French
Canadians, particularly those belong
ing to the wo-klng and artisan classes.
If spoken to suddenly and sharply,
they for a moment lose complete pos-
session of themselves; and do the
most absurd things In obedience to a
command. River men will leap frcm
their rafts into the water at the word
"jump;" and they will, if told to,
throw away anything which they may
have In their hands. A nudge in the
ribs is followed by a long leap or
sometimes by a flying kick. Innum-
erable rough practical jokes are play-
ed by means of this mysterious power.
Many a man In a crowd has received
a rousing kick from behind only to
flnd upon turning round that his ag-
gressor was the involuntary victim of
some mischievous person in the
crowd. The cause of this nervous dis-
ease has never been located. It is
probably a form of what is colloquial-
ly called St. Vitus Dance.
Following His Trade.
Speechless with wrath, a little man
was ushered Into the dock. An orna-
ment of the police force had found him
loitering about and had arrested him
as a suspicious character.
' What were you doing at the time of
your arrest?" asked the weary magis-
"Simply waiting!" spluttered the
"What were you waiting for?"
"Who owed you the money?"
"The man I had been waiting for!"
"What did he owe it to you for?"
The magistrate took his glasses off
and glared at the prisoner.
"Do not jest with me." he said "Now
tell me. have you a trade?"
"Of course I have!"
"Then what is it?"
"I earn my living waiting. You see,
I'm a waiter!"
