KEEPING AT IT
y I I Notwithstanding tho fact that Sembrlch was In the
° cast at tho opera houee Inat night tho most Interesting
tflguroon tho staso for several reasons was nnrlco Caru
so tho tenor
Not merely because ho was making his debut but toe
1
r cause this excellent singer was onto hissed oft the stago
I
for an Italian theatre by an audience which showed Itself
+ very violently dissatisfied with his work That Inci
rr dent occurring several years ago nt tho opening of his
career becomes of especially timely Importance In con
1 nection with Carusos appearance with approval boforo
tlio nations wealthiest nnd most fashionables audlenco
last evening I
c The point Is that where a man of weaker purpose or
cf less resolute spirit might have had his aspirations
forever crushed by that Ignominious expression of dis
approval the young tenor kept bravely on until ho
had triumphed over opposition and mado a name for him
I self not only In Italy but on the Continent
The men who win the great successes of life are often
called on to show this Indomitable spirit It Is Web
ster breaking down In the schoolroom when attempt
Ing to recite It Is Henry Clay too timid to speak
beforo a classroom audience and nerving himself by ro
Ipeated practice In the cornfields with only the cornstalks
to hear him who rise by repeated failures tho applause
of listening senates to command It la tho persistent
F and everlasting keeping at It that enables them In tho
end to overcome the defects of nature
r was the physically feeble Cicero who developed
nto tho robust master of the Roman Senate and from
t Jthq lisping tongue of Demosthenes who cured himself
jby tho historic device ot talking against the noise of
the waves with pebbles In his mouth came the full
round enunciation that charmed the Greeks
J > This ability of persevering against adverse circum
stances seems to be one of tho main attributes of suc
cess Thlers had It The French laughed at his first
speech In the Chamber of Deputies but learned to ad
mlrb his oratory James Whitcomb Riley had It as he
Bhowod by sending his verse to a magazine for nineteen
years without result and in the twentieth securing ad
miwlon to Its pages

pt BRAINS OF THREE MURDERERS
t Dr Spltzkas anatomical examination of the remains
SR
4A a of tho Van Wormer boys after their execution at Dan
c 1 nomora shows that their brains iwero normal in shape
If ivitti no detect or lesion present pointing to dogenera
t1 m
li r There was nothing to Indicate a deficiency of the
f moral faculties The autopsy will carry no comfort to
y4 7 those who feel confident of their ability to judge of a
mans character by tho contour of his ear and estimate
his capacity for sin from tho angle of his forehead
1 re cIt will bo noted with Interest that tho youngest of the
murderers had the heaviest brain Tho difference of
years might naturally be thought to have given that dis
tinction to the oldest and It may be Inferred that the
+ light weight of tho brains of tho older brothers was duo
to a shrinkage resulting from nonuse of tho intellectual
t faculties
7 The average weight of a grown mans brain tissue Is
Just under fifty ounces or a trifle more than three
pounds Its weight is of course not proportionate to Its
quality and the phrenologists used to cite the case of a
I
murderers brain which weighed more than Daniel Web
a tiers This distinction Is well Illustrated in the con
trast between the brain of the eminent natural Cuvler I
which was sixtyfive ounces and that of tho poet
f s Schiller which was fiftyfive Was Byron or Dante tho
1
creator poet Tho formers brain weighed sixtythree
ounces and tho latters fifty
to Dante is seen to have had a brain of only normal
t a size There was many a mercenary soldier In the army
h of the Florentine republic who had a larger cranial de
velopment But In tho Illustrious poets head thero was
f something which the Burgeons scales could not weigh
a which gave it quality
The Van Wormers wore all clover boys gifted with
1 many small talents and accomplishments that prepoa
eessed them In their neighbors favor An earnest pur
pose in life and a saving element of Industry might have
made them useful citizens But tho faculties permitted
to lie fallow shrunk into smaller compass and Invited tho
moral deterioration which made their crlmo possible
+ They withered as the unused muscle withers Had
they been exercised In a vigorous effort to got on In tho
world ty honorable achievement the brain would have
grown with their exercise acquired an added fulness
i and gained capacity for doing greater things a mental
development which largely helps to restrain a man from
e
crime and keep him moral

I T in a trite saying and one which
IT dale back < o the days when the
only obstacles between a maid and
her true love were those which cruel
wws or stern parents or other simIlar
vice regent of an adverse fate Inter
posed
Now however when the chief barrier
to the lovers happiness rests usually
In the perversity of the fair maid her
self love can laugh at lockamlch no
longer
Gen are the time when one the
moat was closed the drawbridge low
Bred the castle warder sent curing to
Ms death the young knight clanked
victoriously to the totter where the
lovelorn dameel awaited him
For Misfbly because there are no
longer any moats or drawbridges or
castle guards ho damsel Is not lovelorn
any more
Devldea rfhe will not stay In the tower
this modem young person For though
a tower commands a moot excellent
blrdaee view of what U going on be
low she feels that she would rattier be
at the procession than to sit passively
and review It even from the grand
stand
And down among the knights she sees
them with that everyday armor on and
the rusty serviceable coats of mall with
which they front the world but not at
nil hike the beautiful shining harness
that she might have seen had she re
molnnl In the tower
The knight Is not a wonderful person
at all seen at such clpse range
Ills armor U dented and specked with
rust Instead of being polfchod so that
one could sea ones face In the glittering
surface
flo the damsel locks her heart her
llttln shallow modern heart against
him And until the key of It Is found love
cnnnot laueh at locksmiths any more
lyovo taps at the heart to be sure
and finding It barred against him trIes
every ono of the housewifely bunch or
keys he carries tor just such emer
gencies
It Is all to no purpose
What la this modern youtur persons
heart anyway a Rife deposit vault or a
cold storage warehouse
Evidently It han a Combination lock
and what oh what IB the combination
If Love be In a patient mood and he
cannot get at the heart In any other
TC iy he will sometime stand quietly
beorn It no ng that If he waits long
enough and the damsel realizes that
there Is positively no hope of his ever
will tell him
going away she herself
the combination to got rid of hlmlt
she knows Ittor very often tho damsel
doesnt know 1L
But sometimes realizing the treasures
that await hIm If onoe the magic words
are told and the heart opens like a
thirsty flower et his touch Love doe
not care to linger over the puzzling
lock
lockHe
He knows there are other ways of
opening lochs besides knowing the com
bination
For love U of the highway as of the
hearth In fact he prefers the high
way and he has n been a gentleman
of the road for nothing
It Is a sod thing to think of Cupid
turning cracksman But after all Is It
the bent method for him to pursue For
really moat of us nowadays dont know
the combination ourselves and If It Is
not blown out for us what ore no to do
nosldcd you know we really prefer
fose who blow It out to thou who oak
in vary oolltclv for It
Why
lleoause men who ask for things give
one an unpleasant sense of rosponsl
bl Ity Anti for that rmton perhaps
dont get them whereas blessed Is he
who takes things for granted for thus
may they IMS granted to him
earlY everybody know theoretical
ly how to crack a safe huw one puttlea
up the cracks to produce a vacuum In
side and then fills the lock UP with a
Jelly like substance that U nitro
glycerine and touch It off
methods of the heart
The burglar are
very similar and they are usually euc
Ces ntul
Sometimes of course even the most
enterprising cracksman Is not quick
enough and In the language of a
re
cently aspiring statesman lie Is caught
with time goods on
Hut then after all It Is his goods or
should be anyway tint no court woud
sentence him to < greater pvnnliy limn

The Man Who
I
Doesnt Tip
the Waiter
Stenos
tf d V SEE said the Cigar Store Man that a Frenea i r
ell journalist who stopped at a hotel with John I I I 1
Rockefeller expresses surprise because tho i
Standard Oil boss failed to tip the waiter j
I l
He Isnt as surprised as the waiter would have been
if the tip had been handed out replied tho Man Higher t J r
Up John D Rockefeller Is ono of the few men wno f
dont have to tip The chances are that ho nevei i1i1
even when he was poor and thats why he has got so
much of the mazuma that it keeps him trained down toj
a shadow hunting places to put It
Its the poor slob who has no home or gets tired of
home cooking onco in a while that has to furnish tho
waiter with fiat houae money We dont cough up be
cause we want to we are afraid that if we dont tha
waiter will think we are cheap John D Rockefeller
dont care whether the waiter thinks he is cheap or notj i
Ho has got his
A man who would climb into a burning bufldlngfto
rescue a poodle dog who would stop a runaway browatj
team or stand up and dodge bullets without experiencing
any quick motions of the heart will wilt like a woman a J
i handkerchief at a melodrama in the presence of walton
I with an ingrowing face and assorted samples of tho bill
of faro on hU shirtfront There Is something 1pa
waiters openfaced suit and apron that makes the ave >
ago male restaurant guest fool as though ho werotoeing
looked at through tho big ends of a pair of opera
glasses J
This subservience to tho waiter has been drilled into
us by the waiters themselves They know full well that
1
unless they want to make It pleasant for you a meal in
a firstclass place can bo made an experience calculated I
to drive Carrie Nation to drink Unless a man ban a
big voice and tho nerve of a panhandler he cant got
away with a bluff against a seasoned waiter u l l
If you eat in the same place all the time its acue 4
of tip or get treated like a coalbin There is always
tho haunting fear when tho waiter brings in your soup IIIj
with his thumb Inserted In the side of tho dish that
perhaps he has put his feet In It on the way from the
Kitchen If you dont tip you get tho passe china and
the huzzsawedge glasses and your coffee Is what too
waiter pours into the pot out of cups discarded by othfcr
guests He deals you the stale bread and If there laa
hunk of athletic butter in tho pantry It Is surely yours
Ive always had a suspicion that the waiters chip in and
buy a private stock of butter that would blow a safe for
the exclusive use of nontipping guests I
It has always seemed to me remarked the Cigar I
Store man that tipping a waiter destroys his uelj
respect n i I l
