Terific Power Shown in it and the
Penalty of Greed.
In Miss Tarbell's character study of
John D. Rockefeller, concluded in the
September Scribner's is the following:
Study the photograph, the last
taken of Mr. Rockefeller, study
George Varian's powerful sketch from
life made in 1903, and say if it be
worth while to be the richest man
in the world at the cost these por
traits show. Concentration; crafti
ness, cruelty, and something inde
finably repulsive are in them. The
photograph reveals nothing more.
Mr. Varian's sketch is vastly more
interesting for it suggests, besides, 1
both power and pathos and no one
can look long- on Mr. Rockefeller
without feeling these qualities. The
impression he makes on one who
sees him for the first time is over
whelming. Brought face to face with
Mr. Rockefeller unexpectedly, and
not knowing him, the writer's imme
diate thought was, "This is the oldest
man in the world-a living mummy."
But there is no sense of feebleness
with the sense of age; indeed there
is one of terific power. The disease
which inthe Tast thre or four years
has swept Mr.- Rockefeller's head
bare of hair, striped away even eye
lashes and eyebrows, has revealed all
the strength of his great head. Mr.
Rockefeller is a big man, not over
tall but large with powerful shoulders
and a neck like that of a bull. The
head is wide and deep and dispropor
tionately high, with curious bumps
made more conspicuous by the tightly
drawn, dry, naked skin. The interest
of the big face lies in the eyes and
mouth. Eyes more useful for a man
of Mr. Rockefeler's practices could
hardly be cQnceived. They are small
and intent and steady, and they are
as expressionless as a wall. They see
everything and reveal nothing. It is
not a shifty eye-not a cruel or leer
ing on. It is something vastly more
to be feared-a blank eye, looking
through and through things, and tell
ing nothing of what they found on the
But if the. eyes tell nothing the
mouth tells much. Its forme. mask,
the full mustache Mr. Rockefeller has
always worn, is now completely gone.
Indeed the greatest loss Mr. Rocke
feller sustained when his hair went
was that it revealed his mouth. It is
only' a slii.-the lips are quite lost, as
if by eternal grinding together of the
'teeth-teeth set on something he
would have. It is at once the cruelest
feature of his face-this mouth-the
cruelest and most pathetic, for the
hard, close-set line slants downward
at the corners, 'giving a look of age
and sadness. The downward drop is
emphasized by deep vertical furrows
running from each side of his nose.
Mr. Rockefell"'r may have made him
self the richtc man in the world, but
he has paid. Nothing but paying
ever ploughs such lines in a man's
face, ever se'cs his lips to such a
Save Your Money.
The folowing admonitions are go
ing the rounds without any credit.
They may have originally been an
ad, for someone, but :that doesnit
matter. They are good, sound, hard,
horse-sense propositions and will do
anyone good. Everybody ought to
save something from day to day.
And there's no time like the present.
"Do it now."
Have you a bank account? If not,
Your wages are small? Demands
are large? Saving is impossible?
Pardon us. saving is not impossible.
The saving may not be large. It may
be pitifully small at the first trial;
but the saving will be a beginning,
and will grow. There are several
reasons why you should have a bank
account, however modest it may be.
First of all, some day one will
need some ready money. Sickness,
loss of work, a slight turn in the
wheel of fortune-what will you do?
Another reason may be found in
contentr, and peace of mind. He who
has some savings feels more secure
than does the spendthrift. Discon
tent and worries dog the footsteps of
the man who lives up all his income.
But the big reason is this: The sav
ing habit is reflex in its action. It is
an ndex of character. It is easy to
spend money. It requires effort to
save it. The flabby-minded man lets
go his nfoney recklessly. The strong
man resists the temptation to spend
more than he can afford and in resist
ance this temptation, grows stronger.
N'or need one grow stingy and
hardhearted. There are many induce
ments for a young man, especially,
to let go of his money. He is urged
in a hundred ways to squander his
hard-earned dollars foolishly. He who
resists is laying the foundation for
a strong business character.
There are thousands, especially in
the cities, who, drawing good sala
ries, guage the ouigo by the income.
They do not save a cent. And it is
usually these who envy the success
ful and point to the latter's as lucky
ones, whereas it is true that the
foundation of every fortune has been
laid in the habit of small savings.
Go to the bank and start an ac
count, however small it may be. It
is the habit of saving that is more im
portant than the saving itself. Get
About the only reasonable excuse
that we have ever heard a man with
money urge against depositing it in a
bank is the fact that banks sometimes
fail, says the Yorkville Enquirer, but
if the losses occasioned by bank fail
ures were compared with those result
ing in failure to make use of the
banks, the bank failure losses would
appear so small in comparison as to
make the excuse appear ridiculous.
