tuft haired HE and rosy checked with girlish blue eyes when he ap plied for the vacancy In the office of Tracy Middleton bankers and brokers His name was Willis N Hayward and he was a proud boy In deed when he was selected out of twenty applicants to be telephone clerk for the firm From 10 a m until 3 p m he stood by Tracy Mlddlctons private tele phone on the floor of the stock ex change the board room receiving messages from the office chiefly orders to buy or sell stocks for customers and transmitting the same messages to the board member of the firm Mr Mid dleton also telephoning Mr Middle tons roj ort8 to the office lie spoke with a soft refined voice and his blue eyes beamed so Ingenuously upon tho other telephone boys In the same row- of booths that they said they had a Sally In their alley and they Immedi ately nicknamed him Sally It was all very wonderful to young Hayward who had been out of board ing school but a few monthsthe ex cited rushing hlthe and thither of wor ried looking men the frantic waving of hands the maniacal yelling of the brokers executing their orders about I tho various posts and their sudden relapse Into somlsanlt as they jotted down tho price at which they had sold or bought stocks It was not surpris ing that he should fall to understand just bow they did business But what most Impressed him was the fact vouched for by his colleagues that these same clamoring gesticulating brokers were actually supposed to make a grout deal of money He hoard of Sam Slmrpes 100000 win nings In Suburban Trolley and of Par son Blacks famous million dollar coup In Western Delawarethe little gray man even being pointed out to him In corroboration But then he had also beard of Aladdin situ the Wonderful Lamp and Jack tilt Giant Killer He learned the business as nearly all boys must do in Wall street by Absorption If he asked questions he received replies but no one volunteer ed any Information for his guidance stud In self defense he was forced to bMnre closely to see how others did and to remark what came of It He heard nothing but speculate speculate In one guise or another many words for the same meaning It was all buy ing or selling of stocks a concentrat od and almost visible hope of making much money In the twinkling of an eye Nobody talked of anything else on the exchange Bosons friends met at the opening of business and did not say Good morning but plunged with out preamble Into the only subject on earth speculation And If one of then arrived late he Inevitably Inquired forthwith Hows the marketasked It OHgorlyI anxiously as If fearful that the market had taken advantage of his nbfionce to misconduct Itself The air was almost unbreathable for the In numerable tips to buy or sell securi ties and Insecurities of all kinds The brokers the customers the clerks the exchange doorkeepers all Wall street read tho morning papers not to ascer taln the news but to pick such items as would should or might have some effect on stock values There was no god but the ticker and the brokers were Its prophets All about Sally were hundreds of men on whoso faces he scarcely ever saw n smile between the hours of 10 and 1 men who looked as If they tool their thoughts home with them and dined with them and slept with them and dreamed of themthe look had become settled Immutable And It was not a pleasant look about the oyej and lips He saw everywhere the feverishness of the game Insensi bly the atmosphere of the place affected i him colored his thoughts Induced certain fancies As he became more familiar with the technique of the busi ness he grew to believe like thousands of youthful or superficial observers that stock market movements were comparable only to the gyrations of the little Ivory ball about the roulette wheelThe innumerable tricks of the trade the uses of Inside misinformation the rationale of stock market manlpula tion were n sealed book to him He hoard only that his eighteen yearold neighbor made

he bravely playedas you I play a horse orUplay the red or the block and cleared 125 In less than a week or that Watson a two dollar broker mado a nice turn tolling Southern Shore or else he heard

CotIU U U U U place savored of the technicalities of n gambling house As time wore on the glamour of the game wore oft likewise his scruples His employers and their customers nil gentlemanly agreeable people speculated every day and nobody found fault with them It was not a sIn It was a regular business And so whenever there was a good thing he chipped In a dollar to a telephone boys pool that later operated In a New street bucket shop to the extent of ten shares His means were his salary being only 8 a week an very often he thought that If ho only had a little more money he woul speculate on a larger scale and proportionately If each time he ha bought one share ho had held twenty Instead he figured that he would have made no less than 400 In three months The time Is quite ripe for other things when a boy begins to reason that way Having no scruples against speculating the problem with him be came not Is It wrong to speculate but rather What shall I do to raise money for margin purposes It took nearly four months for him to arriv- at this stage of mind With many boys the question Is asked and satis factorily solved within three weeks But Hayward was an exceptionally nice chap Now the position of telephone boy Is really Important in that It requires not only a quick witted but a trustworthy person to fill It In the first place the boy knows whether his firm Is buying or selling certain stocks He must ex erclse discrimination In the matter of awarding the orders should the board member of the firm happen to be unavailable when the boy receives the order For example International InI lie impartially dlxtrlbutcd thcflrma tele phoned huiilntj of selling orders bought 500 shares of It at 104 wishes to corral his profits He gives an order to the firm to sell the

closely and when Mr Mldf dleton was absent from the floor or busy he Impartially distributed the firms telephoned buying or selling orders among the two dollar brokers for Tracy Middlcton did a very good commission business Indeed He was a nice looking and nice acting little chap was Haywardclean faced polite and amiable The brokers liked him and they remembered him at Christmas The best memory was possessed bv Joe Jacobs who cave him 25 and Insinuated that he would like to do more of Tracy Middle tons business than he had been doing But said Sally the firm said 1I was to give the order to whichever broker I found first Well said Jacobs olenglnously I am never too busy to take orders from such a nice young fellow as yourself If you take the trouble to find me and Ill do something nice for you Look here In a whisper If you give me plenty of business Ill give you 5 r week And he dived Into the mob that was yelling Itself hoarse about the Natural Gas post Haywards first impulse was to tell his firm about It becauso he felt vaguely that Jacobs would not have offered him 5 a week If he had not expected Something dishonorable In re turn Before the market closed how ever he spoke to Willie Simpson Mac Duff Wilkinsons boy whose telephone was next to Tracy Middle tons Sure enough Willie expressed great Indignation at Jacobs action Its Just like that old skunk said Willie Five dollars n week when ho can make 100 out of the firma Dont you do It Sally Why Jinn Burr who had the place before you used to got 20 a week from old man Grant and 50 a month from Wolff Youve got a cinch If you only know how to work It Why they are supposed to give you CO cents a hundred Willie had been In the business for two years and he was a very fell dressed youth ladrod Sally now understood how no I I unaaged it on a salary ot ia b wo Ho did not say anything to tho firm that day nor any other day And he didnt say anything to Jacobs In return but by Willies sage advice contented himself with merely withholding all orders from thoiJ lcaglnous personage until Mr Jacobs was moved to remon strate And Sally who had learned a great deal Jn ayfWeelc under Wllllei tuition answcreU curtly Business Is very bad Thefirm Is doing hardly anythingcBut Watson told me said Jacobs angrily that he was doing a great deal of business for Tracy Middle ton I want you to see that I get my share or Ill speak to Middleton and find out what the trouble Is Is that sop said Sally calmly You might also tell Mr Middleton that you offered me 5 a week to give you the bulk of our business One of the most stringent laws of the stock exchange treats of splitting commissions Any member who In or der to Increase his business charges an outsider or another member less than exactly the prescrlbed amount for buy Ing or selling stocks Is liable to severe penalties The offer of a two dollar broker to give n telephone boy 50cents for each order of 100 shares secured was obviously a violation of the rule Jacobs came down to business at once Ill make It 8 he said concll latingly Jim Burr who had the position before me expostulated Sally Indignant ly told me he had received 25 a week from Mr Grant with an extra 10 thrown In from time to time when Mr Grant made some lucky turn to say nothing of what the other men did for him Three months before he could not have made this speech had his life de pended on It The rapid development of his character was due exclusively to the forcing power of the atmos phere whlch surrounded him You must be crazy said Jacobs angrily Why I never got much more than a thousand shares a week from Tracy Mlddleton and usually less Say you ought to be on the floor You are wasting your talent In the tele phone business you are Lets jwap places you and I According to our books said Sally to the Irate broker having been duly coached by Mr William Simpson the last week you did business for us you did 3800 shares and received 7G That was an exceptional week Ill make it 10 said Jacobs Twentyfive wnisperea pauy oe tennlnedly Lets split the difference murmur ed Jacobs wrathfully Ill give you 15 a week but you must see that I get at least 2500 shares a week uAU right Ill do the host I can for you Mr Jacobs And he did for the other brokers gave him only twentyfive cents or at the most fifty cents per hundred shares In the course of n month or two Sally was In possession of an In come of 40 a week And he was only eighteen Time passed As It had happened with his predecessor so lid It happen now with Sally He began by specu lating wildly at first more carefully Inter on Ho met with sundry reverses but he also made some very lucky turns Indeed and he was ahead of the game by a very fair amount certainly a sum far greater than any plodding clerk could save In five years greater than many an Industrious me chanic saves In his entire life From the bucket shops he went to the Con solidated Exchange Then he asked Jacobs and the other twodollar brok ers to let him deal In a small way with them which they did out of personal liking for him until he had three separate accounts and could swing a line of several hundred shares He became neither more nor less than 5000 other human beings In Wall streetmoved by the same Im pulses actuated by the same feelings experiencing the same emotions hav ing the same thoughts and the same views of what they are pleased to call their business last the blow fell which Sally IAt so long dreaded ho was pro moted to a clerkship In Tracy MIddletons office The firm meant to reward him for his devotion to his work for his brightness and quick ness From Hia week they raised his salary to 25 which they considered quite generous especially In view of his youth and that he had started three years before with 8 Ho was knowlnslitbemoaned his undeserved fate He took the money he had made to Mr Tracy and told him an Interesting story of a rich aunt and a legacy and asked him to let him open an account In the office Tracy congratulated his young clerk took the 0500 and there after Sally was both an employee arid a customer of Tracy Middleton Addicted to sharp practices as Mr Tracy was and loving commissions as he did he nevertheless sought to curb Sallys youthful propensity for plung ing which was as near being kind as It was possible for a stockbroker to be But the money had come easy That Is why fortunes won by stock gamblers are lost with apparent reck lessness or stupidity Sally speculated with varying success running up his winnings to 10000 and seeing them dwindle later to 0000 But In addi tion to becoming an inveterate specu lator he gained much valuable experience And when ho had learned the tricks of the trade he was taken from the ledgers and turned loose In the

corres pondents our subscribers our friends and our home folks who every week join us in trying to make the paper an upright country weekly for earnest thinking people n The victory of last week was no mans victory nor no partys victory It was the peoples victory The people wore tired of machine and one man boss rule Independ eat Democrats and Republicans joined hands and in a sol id body marched to the polls and cast their votes for a free ballot a fair count and honest methods in elections It is up to the Republicans now to carry out these politics If they dont do it the great Independent vote of the country will turn against them just like it has against the Democrats Wo must have clean honest sober upright men in ollice from the highest to the lowest The people demand it and they will have it It is character that counts in any calling in life Why not make character the standard in the men who till our offices ns well as other posi tions When parties rid themselves of the party boss we will have good men seeking these offices We thank God for arousing the consciences of men to stand for the right for peace for honesty for sobriety and good government Tho sun still shines bright on the old Kentucky home The tobacco troubles will be settled The farmers and the buyers are getting closer together every day and their differ ences will be adjusted to the tatisfaction of all concerned We beleive this for a mighty good Equity man high up in authority told us so Let us all get on a peace basis Put away barsh words and evil thoughts of our neighbors and study the ten commandments Equity is a mighty good word Study it Equal justice and a tqure deal to all Mr Haswell is very much gratified at the result of the election He says that the Republicans stood to him almost to a man that runny good Democrats supported him and that he is grateful to allof them lie realizes that he doesnt know it all and he wall bo pleased to receive any suggestions from any citizen in regard to any proposed legislation It is his desire to support such measures as will be for the benefit of all the people Mr Willsons speeches did more to arouse tho consciences of men than all the other work in the campaign They were hearttoheart appeals They enthused and fired the souls of men to a sense of their duty They were a down pour of political truths and gospel as no man ever uttered before The squareness and the honesty of the man won tho hearts of all true Kentuckians The bat wings nil flow away They were too heavy loaded to get near the polls bhame on such methods and tho men who attempted to use them Willsons majority in the county was 299 Haswells 273 against amendment 1968 Total vote cast 4225 A pretty good days work all around The Independent Democrats asserted

favorably Impressed with the Idea and Sally saw It From that moment on he worked hard to gain the colonels confidence It was he who gave Thornton the first hint of Tracy MIddletons condition which j led to the withdrawal of Thorntons account and his own from the office It was a violation of confidence and of business ethics but Thornton Was very grateful when two months later Tracy f Middlctou failed uudor circumstances which were far from credita ble and which were discussed at great length by the street He showed his gratitude by adding a round sum to Sallys 11500 and Willis N Hayward became a member of the New York Stock Exchange Shortly afterward the firm of Thornton Hayward bankers and brokers was formed Sally then In his twentyfifth year had become a seasoned Wall street man From the start the new firm did well Colonel Thornton and two or threo friends who followed him from Tracy MIddletons office all of them plungers were almost enough to keep Hayward busy on the exchange executing orders and moreover new customers were coming In Had he been catlsficd with this start and with letting time do the rest he would have fared very well But he began to spec ulate for himself and all reputable ommlsslou men will tell you with varying degrees of emphasis that this not only ties up the firms money j but that no man can tradespecu late on his own hook and at the same time do Justice to his customers Thornton was a rich man and pro tected his own speculations more than amply He noticed the development of his young pirtncrs gambling proclivi ties and rciaoastratod

seriously to embarrass the firm Colonel Thornton game to the res Icue promised with a solemnity of sincere fear never to do it againBut fright lasts but a little space and memory Is equally short

boy of Tracy Mlddletons His checks were not pink they were mottled His eyes were not clear and In genuous tl y were shifty and a bit watery He had been in Wall street eight or ten years and he overworked his nerves every day from 10 a m to 3 p m on the stock exchange also from 5 p m to midnight at the cafe of a big uptown hotel where Wall street men gathered to talk shop Ills system craved stimulants Gambling and liquor were the strongest ho knew When after three years the firm ex pired by limitation Colonel Thornton withdrew Ho had had enough of Haywards plunging To be sure Sal ly had become a shrew trader and he had made 75000 during the biz bull boom but he was at heart a trader which Is to say a mere gam bler in stocks and not a desirable com mission man But Sally flushed with success on the bull side did not worry when Thornton refused to continue the part nership The slogan was Buy A 0 TI Its sure to go up the Initials standing for Any Old Thing The most prosperous period In the Industrial and commercial history of the United States begot an epidemic of speculative madness such as was never be fore known and probably never again will be Everybody had money In abundance

market saw Hayward Co doing a good business as did every body else In Wall street It ended and the firms customers after a few bad slumps In prices were admonished to turn bear In order to recoup their losses Bears believe prices are too high and should go lower bulls opti mists believe the opposite The public null me a scat cant sell stocks short any more than the average man Is leftbanded These customers were no exception so they did nothing Hayward had overstayed the bull market though not disastrouslythat- Is he was in error regarding the ex tent and duration of the upward movement of prices He proceeded to fall Into a similar error on the bear or downward side The market had been extremely dull following what the financial writers called a severe de cline but which meant the loss of millions of dollars by speculators A panic had been narrowly averted by a timely combination of powerful inter ests after which the market became professional In the absence of complaisant lambs the financial cannibals known as room ttaders and pikers tried to scalp eighths out of each other for weeks to take advantage of fractional fiftctuatlons Instead of wait Ing for big movements

until too r i J 1 morons ana heavy ana commissions few and light- Hayward was very bearish He had sold stocks sharing the belief of tho majority of his fellows that the lowest prices had not been reached As a re suIt he was heavily short and ho could not cover at a profit because prices had advanced very slowly but very steadily One day a big gambler In Chicago bolder or keener than his eastern brethren thought the time was ripe for a bull or upward movement In general and particularly In Consoli dated Steel Rod companys stock He was the chairman of the board of directors William G Dorr decided upon a plan whereby the stock would bo made attractive to that class of specu lative Investors so to speak who liked to buy stocks making generous dis bursements of profits to their holders Mr Dorrs plan was kept a secret The first step consisted of sending in large buying orders handled by prominent brokers and synchronously the publi cation in the dally press of various items all reciting the wonderful prosperity of the Consolidated Steel Rod company and its phenomenal earnings also the unutterable cheapness of the stock at the prevailing price Mr Dorr and associates of course had previously taken advantage of the big slump or fall In values to buy back at 35 the same stock they had sold to the public some weeks before at 70 Having acquired this cheap stock they manipulated by means of further purchasethe price so that they could sell out at a profit It so happened however that once before dividend rumors about Con Steel Rod had been disseminated with the connivance of Dorr and they had not come true to the great detri ment of credulous buyers and the preater proCt of the insiders who were short of the stock up to their necks a typical hit of stock Jobbing whereat other and more artistic stock lobbors hAlt aynrnanri thn nnn uiguuuon instead or putting tao stocs on a dividend paying basis the direct ors had decided at the last hour that It would not he conservative to do so whereupon the stock had broken seventeen points The lambs lost hun dreds of thousands of dollars the in alders gained as much It was a nice tyrn Hayward remembered this and when the stock after several days of conspicuous activity and steady advances rose to 52 he promptly sold short 5000 shares believing that the barefaced manipulation would not raise the stock much above that figure and that before long It must decline Only a month previously It had sold at 35 and nobody wanted any of It He was all the more decided in his opinion that the top had been reached by prices because Mr Dorr In a Chicago paper had stated that the stockholders would probAbly receive an entire years dividend at one toll swoop by reason of the unexampled prosperity In the steel rod trade Such an action was unprecedented It had been talked about at various times In Connection wJth other stocks but it had never come true Why should it come true in this instance Hayward familiar with Dorrs rec ord promptly coppered his tip to buy banking on Dorrs consistent mendacity But William G Dorr shrewdest and boldest of all western stock gamblers fooled everybody he actually told the truth That week the directors did exactly as he had predicted When a speculator of his caliber lies he fools only onehalf the foolish hair of the street When ho tells the truth he deceives everybody Before Wall street could recover from the shock the price of the stock was up 5 points which meant that Hayward was out 25000 on that deal alone But in addition the general list was carried upward sympathet ically The semiparalyzed bulls rev gained confidence as they saw the suc cessful outcome of the Chicago gamblers maneuvers In Consolidated Steel Rod Money rates and bear hopes fell stock values and bull courage rosel Hayward began covering Steel Rod He bought in 5000 shares and after he finished he had Iqst 20750 by the deal He was still short about 12000 shares of other stocks on which his paper losses at the last quoted prices were over 35000 but lit he tried to buy back such a largo amount of stock In a market so sen sitive to any kind of bull Impetus he would send prices upward In a Jiffy increasing his own losses very materi allyHe went to his office that morning Inn tremor He consulted the cashier and found he had only 52000 at the bank of which twothirds belonged to his customers Ho was already morally I speakinjr an embezzler He was ruined If ho didnt cover and he was ruined If he did His seat pn the stock exchange was worth possibly 40000 not a cent more and as ho personally owed his out of town corre spondents nearly 38000 he could not avoid being hopelessly ruined Moreover his bankruptcy would not be an honest failure for as he told him self bitterly after the harm was done I had no business to speculate on m- own hook with other peoples money Ho had felt it rather than had seen it coming for gamblcrllke he had closed his eyes and had burled his head In time sand of hope trusting In luck to protect him from punlshnjent But now ho was taco to face with the question that every gambler dreadslilt I stood to loso all how desperate a risk would I take in order to get It back Tho answer is usually so appallingly thief like that the numerous Haywards of tho stock exchange and the board of trade forthwith stop thinking with a suddenness that does credit to the rem nants of their honesty But it haunts them does the ominous question and the commenced but unfinished answer A a ho laff hfa office to no to u cIt board room he put to nfrfieir too taw query But he would not let himself answer it until he had stopped at Freds the official barroom of the stock exchange and had taken a stiff drink of raw whls y Then the answer came He was ruined anyhow If bo failed without further adothat Is without Increasing his liabilities ho would be cursed by twentyfive of his customers and by fifteen of his fellow brokers who were lending stocks to him But If be made one last desperate effort he might pull out of the hole or at worst why the number of cursing customers would remain the same but the fellow brokers would rise to twenty or thirty Ho took another stiff drink The market had become undoubtedly a bull market The bears had been fighting the advance and thorn still remained a stubborn short Interest In certain stocks as for example in American Sugar company stock Now If that short Interest could be stampeded It might mean an eight or ten point ad vance If he bought 10000 or 15000 shares and sold them at an average profit of four or five points he would put off the disaster and if he made ten points he would be a great oper ator He bad to be sure no business to buy even 1000 shares of Sugar but then he had no business to be on the verge of bankruptcy The liquor was potent Sally said to himself aggrlevedly I might as well be hung for a flock as for one measly old mutton He walked a trifle unsteadily from Freds across the narrow asphalted New street to the stock exchange He paused at the entrance There was no escape Unless he could make a lucky strike he would tall Ignomini ously Pikes Peak or bust he muttered to himself and walked Into the big roomGood morning Mr Hayward said the doorkeeper Hayward nodded absently caught himself repeating Pikes Peak or bust and walked straight toward the Sugar post lIe began to bid for stock One thousand shares at 110 he got it Another thousand it was forthcoming at 110V6 A third thousand somebody was glad to sell It at 11Gy So far so had Then he hid 117 for 25vO shares and It was promptly sold But when he bid 117 for any port of 5000 the crowd hesitated time bankers were not altogether sure Ilaywarjl was good for It his ability to pay for the stock wits not undoubted So Sally taking 11jl1flulIprice Billy Thatcher a twodollar broker sold It to him It made 10500 shares Hayward hud bought and tIll stock hull risen only I1h points The shorts were not frightened a wee lilt But Sally was lie rushed out of the crowd to his telephone and Hindu a pretense of reporting the transaction to his office ns he would have done had they been bonu tide purchases Ho was followed by a hun dred sharply curious and curiously sharp eyes They saw him hold the telephone receiver to his ear with uu expression of great Interest as If he were listening to an Important message But the only message he heard was that of his heart boats that seemed to say almost articulately You have played and you have lost you have played and you have lost Therefore you are that much worse off than before You must play again and not lose He left his telephone and rushed back to the Sugar crowd lIe was less excited less like a drunken man his face was no longer flushed but pale And anon there Hashed upon him as If In candent letters the words Pikes peak or bust But Pikes peak glow ed dully feebly while the alternative was of a lurid splendor And ho blink ed his eyes and made n curious impa tient motion with his hand as one waves away an annoying Insect He gave an order for 5000 Sugar to his friend Newton Hartley Is this for yourself Sally asked HartleyNo Its for one of the biggest men in the street Newt Its all right Absolutely O K And thus reassured Hartley bought the stock The price was 118 The seller would hold Hartley responsible for the purchase money If Hayward laid down refused to pay Sally wiped his forehead twice quite unnecessarily The shorts were not stampeding Any attempt to sell out the 15000 shares ho had bought would result only In depressing the price five points at least It was worse than bad the outlook for him lIe gave another order to buy 5000 shares to Billy Lansing an old and reliable two dollar broker but Lan sing declined It He tried another but the order was not accepted They mis trusted him but he could not even bluster for they excused themselves on the ground of having Important orders elsewhere So he had i urse to an other personal friend J Thompson Joe buy 5000 Sugar Are you sober said Thompson seriously See for yourself answered Sally laughingly He hind nerve Old man Ive got a very big order from one of KILL THE COUCH AND CURE THE LUNGS WITH Dr Kings New DiscoveryF- OR oLPfW floccm ooOLDSAND ALL THROAT AND LUNG TROIJXLES GUARANTEED SATISJrAOrOltl OK MOKEY REFUNDED the biggest men In tne street home Important developments are going on Sally are you sure youve got an or der for some one else asked the unconvinced broker His Incredulity was obviously In the nature of an Insult but it was pardonable for there was too much at stake Joe come over to the office and Ill show you Really 1 cant tell you But I can advise you as a friend to buy Sugar for all you are worth And as he uttered the lie he looked straight Into Thompsons eyes Hayward are you sure Are you sure youre not making a mistake He wanted the commission of 100 but he did not feel certain of his friend Oh hell no Ive got a lot more to buy Its all right Go almond Joe And Joe went almond He bought the 5000 shares The stock rose to 1101h and Hayward warned by his experience with Hartley and Thompson did not ask either friend or foe to buy another 5000 shares for him What he did was to distribute buying orders for 10000 shares lu lots of 500 Brokers now accepted his orders for they were not so large as to be dangerous And the stock rose to 122 4 A few shorts were frightened He might win out after all He might make Pikes peak Ho began to bid up the stock Ho even bought cash stockthat is stock for which he paid cash had to pay cash outright receiving the certificates forthwith presumably to hand over to some Investor of millions Everybody on the floor wits talking about Hayward The entire market had risen In sympathy with Sugar But at 124 It seemed as If the entire capital stock was for sale He ceased buying He had accumulated 38000 shares To pay for the stock necessi tated about 0500000 But if he could unload on an average of only 122 he might come out even In his other troublesHe an order to sell 10000 shares to a broker to whom he had always been a good friend It was a fatal mis take The broker Louis W Wechsler had previously sold 1000 shares to Hayward for cash at 122 He sus pected what was coming and declin ing the order he himself went to Hay wards otilce and asked for a check The cashier sought to put him

would have to settle Pikes peak or He did indeed need yenta ble Pikes peak of dollars to pay for the 28000 Sugar be had on hand So he busted lIe threw up his hands He acknowl edged defeat to himself
