A CONTRMAb E\ BOYS
TOWN AND COUNTRY LADS IN THE
STRUGGLE OF LIFE.
of the Mien Who Have Achieved
Great Prominence In Public Affair
the Rural Boys Are at Least Twen
ty to One Over the City Lads.
A country boy's lack of opportunity
is his best equipment for the serious
struggle of life. This sounds paradox
ical, but it is true. It is just as truc
as the opposite proposition, that thc
greatest hindrances a city boy has tc
contend with are the opportunities
which beset him when young and pur
sue him till he begins the real business
of life, a business which each individu
al must carry on for himself. For the
city boy everything is made as easy as
possible. Even pleasure becomes to
him an old story before he is out of his
teens. Brought up in the feverish rush
of a place where great things are hap
pening day by day, he sees the world
with a cynic's eyes and despises the
small things which, -like the bricks in
a house, go to the upbuilding of char
acters and careers. lie believes in us
ing large markers in the game of life;
for pennies and small units of value he
has little taste and scant regard.
The conditions surrounding the coun
try boy are as different as possible.
There is a deal of regular work that
every country boy must do, and this
regularity of employment, mostly out
of doors, inculcates industrious habits,
,while it contributes to a physical de
SJelopment which in after years is just
as valuable as any athletic training
that can be had. He cannot run as
fast perhaps as those trained by a sys
tem. He may not be able to jump so
high or so far or excel in any of the
sports upon which we bestow so much
time and from which we get so much
of pleasure, but his development en
ables him to buckle down to the hard
work in which hours are consumed
and from which very little or no im
I mediate pleasure is extracted. His
strength may be something like that
of the cart horse, but the cart horse
is to be preferred where a long and
steady pull is required. The thorough
bred race horse has a fine flight of
speed and canters with delightful
lightness and grace along the park
bridle paths, but the heavy work Is the
work most in demand, and for that we
want the draft animals every time.
Enthusiasm is the spur to endeavor,
and at the same time it is the savor of
life. The country boy whose ambi
tion has taken him to town comes
filled with enthusiasms. Even the lit
tle things are novelties to him, and as
he accomplishes this and that he feels
that he is doing something not only
Interesting, but valuable. His simple
tastes have not been spoiled by a mul
tiplicity of gratifications, and so he Is
glad of everything good that comes
s way. At thirty, if he leads a clean
life, he has more of the boy in him
than his city cousin has left at fifteen.
He does what is before him because It
is his duty, while the other Is apt
cynically to question the value of do
ing anything and ask, "What Is the
Of the men who have achieved great
proainence and high Influence in our
affairs of state the country boys are at
least twenty to one over the city lads.
Nowadays indeed our cynical city lads
look upon men who take an active in
terest in public affairs as rather low
fellows and quite beneath their associ
ation and notice. But the country boys
are at the top In other lines of endeav
or.' In finance they are pre-emninent,
and the great bank presidents today in
the great cities nearly all learned to
read and to cipher In country schools
where birch and ferule had not sue
cumbed to the civilizing influences of
scientific pedagogy. Our great rail
ways were in the main built by them,
and today the administrators of these
great companies are in great measure
from farms and country villages, from
Iplaces where work began in early in
fancy and a sense of duty developed
while still the lisp of childhood lin
Some city boys, however, are of such
sturdy stuff and endowed with such
natural gifts that they succeed by rea
son of their inherent superiority. Oth
ers succeed abundantly because they
have used their opportunities wisely
and in real life have pursued the same
course which enables so mang country
boys to wIn fame and fortune. The
more honor to them for having sur
vived their too great opportunities.
But the country boy when he comes to
town reaches out for the high places.
Though not all find seats of the
mighty, nearly all of the exalted sta
tions are filled in the end by men of
country birth and country rearing, for
they usually start out with the sound
theory thnt what Is worth having Is
worth striving for.-John Gilmer Speed

Negro's Kicking Hair.
A boy big enough to have reached
the subject of races of men-not horses
-in his geography class was asked to
describe the negro. His answer, "The
negro has kicking hair and producing
lips," showed that he had at least
heard the teacher when she spoke of
the "kinky" hair and "projecting" lips
characterizing his dark skinned broth
er. His answer really was not so fun
ny as the remark made by a woman
who in speaking of her sister said feel
ingly, "Oh. she's all misconstrued, so
we had to take her to the hospital for
a performance."-New York Herald.

Mrs. Scale Downie-I have found out
how~ to make just the loveliest little
hanging cabinet you ev'er saw at a cost

THE BUYci: UJ .
He Is . Mnn of Conse.uence Abou
The buyer occupies a position of con
sequence in the stockyards community
lie is nt expert, usually a man of mid
die age, who has obtained his educa
Lion and technical ability partly in th
packing houses and partly on the ranel
An exper'ienced buyer Is likely to rc
ceive a salary of $4,(IUO to $5.000
year, and he is worth all of that, for o]
his ability to tell by a moment's in
spection what quality of beef will b
produced by a steer that he never be
fore laid eyes on depends primarily th
excellence of the product issued by hI
huase and hence the increase of it
The buyer's work is not arduous. and
to all appearance his task is a simpl'
one. He walks along the flat boar<
laid along the top of the fence, glanc
ing keenly at the cattle in the differen
pens. Some he passes by w hout
pause, others he stops to inspect more
closely, and occasionally he display
his interest in a group by asking
question or two of the man In charge.
Long experience enables him at
glance to distinguish between a gras
fed steer and- a corn fed steer, to de
cide whether an animal is entitled t<
be classed as "fancy." "good" or "com
mon" and to guess within a few pound:
of an animal's exact weight by glanc
ing at him. The buyer makes his pur
chases "on the hoof," paying the mar
ket price ruling for the day for thi
grade In which it is decided each grou]
of cattle belongs. In a few words th<
transaction is completed, and the buy
er's interest in the affair Is ended.
An Anecdote of Bach.
The Duke of Saxe-Weimar once invit
ed John Sebastian Bach, the Nestor o
German music, to attend a dinner a
the palace. Before the guests sat dowi
to the feast Bach was asked to giv<
an improvisation. The composer seat
ed himself at the harpsichord ant
straightway forgot all about dinne:
and everything else. He played so loni
that at last the duke touched his shoul
der and said, "We are very muel
obliged, master, but we must not le
the soup get cold."
Bach sprang to his feet and followe<
the duke to the dining room withou
uttering a word. But he was scarcel:
seated when he sprang up, rushed bacl
to the instrument like one demented
struck a few chords and returned t<
the dining room, evidently feeling mud
better. "I beg pardon, your highness,'
he said, "but you interrupted me in i
series of chords and arpeggios on thi
dominant seventh, and I could not fee
at ease until they were resolved int<
the tonic. It is as if you had snatches
a glass of water from the lips of a mai
dying of thirst. Now I have drunk thi
glass out and am content"

Birds' Nests and Poetry.
Birds' nests have attracted the atten
tion of inquisitive genius fromethe day:
of Aristotle down to the present time
This is not wonderful, because th<
nests are invariably curious and oftei
beautiful, besides offering a cradle, a;
it were, for a host of romantic specula
tions and p)oeticail theories. Imagina
tion has taken hold of birds and theil
nests with singular affection, drawini
forhi meantime some beautiful leg
ends to enrich romance withal and t<
add to the sum of what is most per
sistent in the song of mankind.
The ancients told that the halcyon,
beautiful aquatic bird, had its nest oi
the sea's breast, a little floating palac4
around which the water was alway;
calm and sweet. Halcyon, or alcyon
was the kingfisher, it is supposed, bu
we now know every species of thi;
bird, and none of them builds its nes
to drift about on the sea. Indeed, a~
if to make the contrast of fact witl
fancy as great as possible, most of th
kingfishers dig deep holes In th
ground for their homes.
