MORGAN NO BUSINESS MAN.
Tho gipsy queen who, without knowing the identity of the man
she was dealing with, read the palm of J. Pierpont Morgan and de
clared that he has great psychic power hut no business capacity, is
standing by her decision in the face of the seemingly crushing refuta
tion that is furnished in Morgan's record.
And why should she not stand by it?
Whether her palm-rtadlng is guesswork or not, she has come
mighty near the truth.
The psychic power of the great financier Is amazing to the com
mon mind. His easy and confident grasp of situations utterly baf
fling to ordinary men seems sometimes almost supernatural. It is Im
possible that one mind should fully comprehend in all the vitally im
portant detail all the conditions that he so skillfully turns to his own
advantage. That his mind is Illuminated by flashes of inspiration of
some sort is not to be questioned. By some mysterious intuition he
feels where runs the full current of the great industrial, commercial
and financial flood and it sweeps him onward, knowing no more of its
sources or its deeps and being no more a part of the forces that move it
than is any other man.
Business ability is a different quality altogether. The two arc not
Even allied, but are opposite.
The methodical business man proceeds only upon such ventures as
be can see through to the end. He touches only that which he under
stands. His main capital is caution.
There is nothing in Morgan's career to Indicate that he has capa
bilities for success in ordinary business.
The pyschic temperament that makes him a quiescent quantity,
fitting itself into harmony with conditions, rather than a positive force, j
Striving to make conditions conform to its own purposes, utterly un
fits him for control of any business where success depends upon cer
tain knowledge of the constantly changing want 3 and tastes of the
We can imagine Morgan cutting a sorry figure trying to run a
corner grocery, or a great department store, or attempting tho direct
management of a railroad.
He would find that there are qualities necessary in ordinary busi
ness that are utterly unknown to him.

the Ideal family man. He was a banker and broker, and leading
member of a church, liberal In his contributions to charity, and to

There was another side to this man.

Out long ago.
And this case affords occasion for saying—
[ There Is in every man a dual nature.
Some years ago Dr. Sequard-Brown promulgated the theory of the
dual brain and it is said that his idea set Stevenson to thinking along
this line of duality, resulting in the conception of "The Strange Case
Of Dr. Jeykl and Mr. Hyde."
And it may be said that every nian has within him, whether In
his brain or not, a dual self. He may not develop either to its out
come. It is the business of education and religion to merge the two,
resolving the worse propensity into the better, forming what we call
Every person has a certain reputation. That is the Dr. Jeykl part
•—what one appears to be.
Every person has a certain character. That is the Mr. Hyde part
what one really is.
The Dr. Jekyl is honored and respected until it is discovered that
he is really the stealthy, ferocious Mr. Hyde.
Then comes the denouement and surprise. "A man In high station
fallen," say me headlines.
It is not true.
There has been tho struggle of years between Dr. Jekyl and Mr.
Hyde. The former hates, fears, abhors the latter. He turns sick with
apprehension at the mere mention of the name. The two fight for the
possession of the man. If Jekyl wins Hyde disappears. If Hyde wins
The Greek tragedies are a far better picture of the real struggle
between the good and the bad than is the Spanish drama of Calderon.

The International Seamen's union
began Its annual convention in

Washington navy yard with his
large personal staff direct for the
naval base at Culebra island. Ad

She has, or thinks she has, an ex
cuse for wanting it.
She has sued Edward (1. Gillmoro
and Eugene Tompkins for the
amount, basing her claim on in
juries which she received.
Gillinore and Tompkins own the
Academy of Music. While Miss
Howe was appearing at the theater
in "Quincy Adams Sawyer," a few
weeks ago, the stage was being re
modeled for the production of
"Ninety and Nine," a melodrama In
which a tame locomotive plays a
star part. There was a hole in the
stage floor. Into this went Miss
Howe's dainty foot, her trim ankle
was twisted and she fell to the floor
in a faint.
"I was in bed for some time,"
says Miss Howe, "and the doctor
had to visit me three times a day.
