K Luck and Pluck.
A (Respectfully submitted to tlie young
ien of our town and vicinity.)
H Young man, your success or your
Biilure, your weal or woe of life will
Bmg largely in ti':e manner in which
Hfou treat those two words.
1^^^ ,Our fathers were good religious peor?".p
and did nnf. mean to foster athe
ism when they talked about luck and
gave a half-way assent to its Godless
reality. If the universe were an in- i
finite chaos, if order had no throne in
its wide realm, if universal law were
wb a fable or a fancy, if God were a Bab- j
W el. or the world a pandemonium t~ere
might be such a thing as luck. But
while from the particle to the globe,
from the animalcule to the archan- j
gel, there is not a being or a thing
or a time or an event, disconnected
^ v wit!j the great government of eternal!
law and order, we can not see 'tow ,
such a game of c!:ance as the word ;
luck supposes can be admitted to any j
corner of the great world. Luck! J
What is it? A lottery? A frolic of
games? A ruse among the element?!
A trick of dame nature? Has any.
scholar defined luck, any philosopher I
explained its nature, any chemist |
;shown us its elements? Is luck Ctat
strange nondescript immateriality j
that does all things among men that j
_ f they can not account for? If so, why ,
does luck not make a fool speak words ;
W of wisdom, an ignoramus, utter lec-1
f tures on philosophy, a stupid dolt write j
the great works of music and poetry, i
I Many are the young men who waste
the best part of ttceir lives in at- i
tempts to woo this coy maid into their!
embraces. They enter into this or
k that or the other speculation, with J
the dreamy hope that luck * rill pay i
tfcem a smiling visit. Some go to Cal
ifornia or Australia, or the far West,
or the torrid or frigid zones, or some
other way oft place, with no fair pros-,
pects or fbope of success from their j
nwn pnf?rsries or exertions, but depend
~ ~ i - - i
ing all the while for a gentle smile j
from capricious luck. Poor fellows!
they find that luck does not get so far
away from home.
Some less daring and more lazy,
loiter about home, drawl about town,
or loll t&rough the country, whose |
only hope and expectation is in a
I / shuffle of luck in their favor. They

ui widence hard as brass, they will
Urto luck for a windfall or a fat
^^^ifice, or a living and foolishly await
Van answer. These are the men wito
V make your gamblers, house thieves,
R your counterfeiters, your gentlemen
^loafers. Tbey are not men who orig
inally mean any harm, but they beB
lieve in luck, and they trust to luck,
V and they are going to have it out of
'U luck some way. They despised mean
ness at first peittaps, as bad as you or;
J- V?*. onmflK/wlr tnlrJ tbATTI Of lllCk

and they believed and lo! they are j
duped. Little by little they went over
to meanness, awaiting all the while for
a shake of the hand from luck.
It is not luck, but pluck, which
weaves the web of life. It is not luck
Hr but pluck wtaich turhs the wheel o!
V fortune. It is pluck. that amasses
wealth, that crowns men with honor,
/ that forges the luxuries of life. We
f use the term pluck as synonomous
whole-hearted energy, genuine bravery
f of soul.
That man is to be pitied who is too
fearful and cowardly to go out and
do battle for an fconest living ana a
competence in tne great, neia ui unman
exertion. He is the man of luc-fc
?bad luck. Poor fellow, =be lost his
luck when he lost his pluck. Good
pluck is good luck. Many a man has
lost his luck, but never while lie had
good pluck life. Men lost their luck
hy letting their energies eke througa
bad habits and unwise projects. Ono '
man loses his luck in his late morning
naps, another in his late evening :
fcours, another in the bar room, anoth- I
er in the ball room, one down by the
river holding the boyish fishing rod,
wnnris rhasinz down

the innocent squirrel. One loses his
luck in folly, one in fastion, one in
idleness, and a great many in bad management.
Indeed, bad management 5.s j
at the bottom of nearly all bad luck.
It is bad management to train up a
family into bad habits?to eat out
one's living and corrupt one's life.
Aij amicable disposition linked with
an energetic desire to piease mose
with whom we live, smooths over the
rough places that are found in every
household. There are different temperaments
with which to contend,
housekeeping cares, the demands of
society, and a great many women have
hard, rough work to do. To perform
all these duties and at the same time
keep everything running in harmony
requires patience, tact and oft times

>rr. Bryan I'mler Fire. (
Just at this time Mr. Bryan is corn- | i
ing in for a lot of Hearst-led criticism, j <
So far as we know, Mr. Bryan's sole'"
error is in not giving enough publicity '
to the work' of the State department.' j
That does not actually give rise to, but i really
permits a lot of tliiis criticism. |
For instance, he has been reproved j I
for going about tbe country on lec-^
ture tours. fWe have been told by i1
persons in a position to judge, and to;
know, that Mr. Bryan keeps up with
his work more closely than any other j
1 3 J AT 4. '
secretary we nave ever uau, aim ma; <
!his desk is always clear, or he is j <
always ready to act upon whatever"
come up. '
Mr. Bryan's espousal of the prohibition
cause and his manner of distributing
patronage have been citicised
quite recently, especially in connec- ,
tion with the rumor that he wishes to <
go to the senate. We think lie would |
do the country great eservice in the' i
senate, coming as he does with an in- J
timate knowledge of the inside work,1
of the government.
A writer in a Northern paper thus
aportrophizes Mr. Bryan, and It Is a:
strong and worthily bestowed enconium:
i "Just coming into ibis own is our, ;
beloved Bryan. Yet a little while and!
the whole world will appreciate the j
fact that both our beloved president
and secretary of state our men of
" 'God works in mysterious ways His
wonders to perform,' and thus we see 1
this nation with a Washington in time: (
of dire need, a Jefferson and his Dec- j
laration of Independence, a Lincoln
with 'tis immortal saying that this I
nation under God "shall not perihSj
from tbe earthy,' and a God-loving Mc-( 1
TCinlev in turn. j
"May I suggest that instead of of- j
fering Mr. Bryan a salary to keep him
away from his lecturing tours you use I
every means at your command to as-! j
sist him in his work* of teaching the j
people of tit is great nation* that we
must 'breast the hills of hatred and
stem dark error's flood' in order tnat
we may take our God-intended place !
as leader of the nations or eartn r i
When Mr. Root was secretary of j
state he was not criticised for having,
other sources of revenue. LVlr. Bryan's! 1
chautauqua iectures were not giving
so much concern except for tfce fact
that he was wielding a powerful influ- j ,
ence over the people whom he saw, j
lace iu ittue, auu LUiO "o.o uuiviu&. ?. V. j
agree with the New York citizen quot-1
ed above. It would be a good thing if
Mr. Bryan could and should spend sev- <
eral montlfcs going among the people,; 1
teaching the principles of pure democ- j j
racy and repeating his lecture on "Tie! ,
Prince of Peace." , ,

They Are the Longest Lived People In
the World Today.
The fine stature and unique physical
qualities of the athletic Norsemen are
thus described by Price Collier in an
article on "Norway and the Norwegians.
From an American Point of
View," in Scribner's Magazine:
"The so called bonder, or agricultural
peasantry, form the very backbone
of the nation in Norway. Each is
proprietor of his own farm, and they

bo larjre as to exempt them from work,
but larire enough to supply them tfnd
their families with wholesome food, lu

houses. m:'ide their own furniture,
plows, carts, harness. ironwor^ wood
work and basketwork. I'rohabiy there
are no communities anywhere else in
the wor!d*so self efficient, so indej>endErDt
and so comfortable.
"Indeed, their size and wholesome
aspect prove this, for they are the fair
est. tallest, broadest chested and long
2st lived people in the world today.
"In the streets of the towns, at the
farms, on tlie roads, one seldom sees a
rat man or one who looks unwieldy.
They are sturdily, sometimes rie;?vily.
built, but they are ie;iu in the hank,
broad ot shoulder and thick through,

themselves litihrlv or irracefuily. they
