WORDS TO LITERARY ASPIRANTS.
,AU the Professions Hindered for "Want of
lien to Do the Work.
Literature, like the ministry, medicine,
the. law and all other occupations, is
cramped and hindered for want of men tc
do the work, not want of work to do.
When people tell you the reverse they
speak that which is not true. If you desiro
to test this you need only hunt up a first
class editor, reporter, business manager,
foreman of a shop, mechanic or artist in
any branch of industry and try to hire
him. 1'ou will find that ho is already
hired. Ho is sober, industrious, capable
and reliable and always in demand. He
cannot get a day's holiday except by cour
tesy of his emyloyer, or of his city, or of
the great general public. But if you need
idlers, shirkers, half-instructed, unambiti
ous and comfort-seeking editors, report
ers, lawyers, doctors and mechanics, apply
anywhere. There are millions of them to
be had at the dropping of a handerchier.
Tho young literary aspirant is a very,
very curious creature. He knows that if
he wished to become a tinner the master
smith would require him to prove the pos
sesion of a good character and would re
quire him to promise to stay in the shop
three years possibly four and would,
make him sweep out and bring water and
build fires all the first j-ear, and let him
learn to black stoves in the intervals. If
he wanted to become a mechanic of
any other kind, he would have to
undergo the tame tedious, ill-paid appren
ticeship. If he wanted to become a lawyer
or a doctor, he would have fifty times
worse, for he would get nothing at all dur
ing his long apprenticeship, and in addi
tion would have to pay a large sum for tu
ition and have the privilege of boarding
and clothing himself. Tho literary as
pirant knows ail this, and yet he has the
hardihood to present himself for leception
Into the literary guii.1 and ask to share its
high honors and emoluments without a
single twelvpinonth'3 apprenticeship to
show in excuse for his presumption.
He wou.d .smile pleasantly if lie were
asked even to make so simple a thing a3 a
10-cent tin dipper without previous in
struction iii the ait; bur, all green and ig
norant, wordy, xiompoiibly assertive, wi
grainmatical, and with a vague, distorted
knowledge of men and the world, ac
quired in a bnck country -village, lie will
serenely take up so dangerous a weapon
as a pen and attack the most formidable
Mibject that finance, commerce, war or
politics can furnish him withal. It -n onld
oe laughable if it were not ho sad and so
pitiable. The poor fellow would not in
trude upon the tin-shop without an ap
prenticeship, but is willing to seize and
wield with unpracticed hand an instru
ment which is able to ovcithiow dynas
ties, chango 1 elisions and decree the weal
or woe of nations. Mark Twain.
Man In an IntolUfienco Ofllce.
Of all places in v. hich a man is uncom
fortable, an intelligence office is the one
in which he appears least at ease; but oc
casionulty he rises superior to circum
utauces and entertains his feminine fel
low sufifereis by his rebellion against his
oppressors. Pucli a one sat in a South
End offico the other day and allowed him
helf to be catechised by pome fifteen serv
ants, but the sixteenth found her match.
She made tho usual inquiries in order to
nssure herself that his home contained all
the luxuries to which she had bean accus
tomed, and which her delicate health re
quired, and at last said: ''I shan't come.''
"I was afraid jou wouldn't,'' he answered
pensively, "but you ought. Thu house
isn't much, I know, but I'm building one
that's to have i,et tubs, and bells, and an
t-levator, and an electric light, and a
piano, and a net of parlor furintme in the
kitchen, and it Aouldboliko your child
hood's home to you, and I'll let you keep
a pig in it.
She walked out of the office, and tho
other girls were decently respectful for a
few minutes; but a fresh arrival, quite
unawaie of his possibilities, soon attacked
him. He answered her also with civility
until her question became impertinent,
and when tho said, "Well, I guess I'll
hire' you. How'many have ye in family?"
ho answered "Eighteen."' ''Eighteen!' she
gasped. '-And what do ye bjs paying a
weekJ-"' -$1.."jO.'' '-Indeed, and I'll not go,"
said she; and she also departed, for every
body laughed. ''And after all," said a
lady who had seen tho whole, '-ne found
and engaged a nice ghL If a woman had
wiidhalfas much she would have been
