but more frequently helping in load
ing lumber and in teaming. Here he
staved until the "hard times" after
the panic of 1857 forced his discharge
though he was able to stay a few
weeks longer as night watchman
Then came an opening lh bookkeeper
in a trust company, which led in
three years to the place of cashier,
Here the young man made a reputa
tion which, at the age of 32, gave
him the cashiership of a bank that
was to become fine of the most pow
erful in the world. In the course of
fourteen years he was promoted to
the vice presidency of the institution
and in nine years more he was its
head, recognized 'as an authority in
the world of finance.
A dozen years after the birth of
ihe future Chicago banker, add the
!Xew York Post, a. boy came into a
Vermont family, which not long af
terwards shared the impulse- of that
day toward the west and moved to
Iowa. It was a family of the pioneer
type, and could give the boy no fur
ther educational advantages than
those of the common school. But he
was ambitious and industrious, and
he resolved to go to college if he had
to work his way through. This he
did, and then he taught school and
labored in the harvest field to earn
money, while lie spent his leisure
time in studying law. Once admit
ted to the bar, he devoted l.iy ener
gies in practice in a small .own with
such zeal that he soon caine to by
known as a rising young lawyer in
that part of the state. He had a
taste for business, ami became inter

to work hard, studied questions of
banking as well as of law, and when
the occasion demanded a man to
gr-ipple wilh a great financial issie
that was submitted to the eople, he
met the exigency so successfully that
he eople of his state turned to him
for leadership, nnd he lecnme gov

Still Misrepresenting Bryan.
The republican machine organs and
heelers keep right on misrepresent
ing William .1. llryan. The Com-
meiier in a current issue calls at
tention to a statement published in
a Denver organ of "the party of
great moral ideas purjiorting to be
authorized by a man named Kddy,
who claims his home is. in Lincoln,
Xcb.. in which he says:
"It is stated on reliable authority
that W. .1. Hrvan will retire fr m the
newspaper business when the first
year's existence of The Commoner
expires. The pajier hr.s been a
wretched failure, and it is well
known around Lincoln that Mr.
Hryan is much disgusted with the
lack of support of Hie enterprise."
Mr. I'ryan ays that the alxive
statement is not only absolutely
false ami entirely without founda
tion, but it lears,evitlence of the mal
ice which seems to actuate a large
number of republicans. Mr. ltrynu
declares that the Commoner was not
established as the result of a sudden
impulse; but that he determined, be
fore his candidacy for president to
devote his life to the study and dis
cussion of public questions, anil has
not been changed by his defeat: that
he chose the newspaer field as the
one best suited to his purpose, and

Choice of a Profession
By Barry Pain.
'Have yoi ever thought what you
would like to be when you grow up?"
asked the Interviewer.
"Anybody been getting at you at all
about that?" asked James Robinson
"Because that holy man. Mr. Dilwa
ter, was on the same taclc yesterday;
also the governor's been on it: likewise
the mater, not to mention that aged
owl. Aunt rrlscllla."
"Really, James, you cannot be per
mitted to speak cf Mrs. Harstcu In
that disrespectful way."
"Well, look here, it's no good my talk
ing If I'm going to be not permitted ev
ery minute. If I spoke respectfully of
a woman that solemnly gave me a
threepenny bit as a tip when I came
back this term, that would be acting a
lie. and. as you know, being In the
choir. I'm rather particular."
"Mrs. Harston forgets that you have
been growing rapidly these last few
years and that such an offering is, lu
amount at least, no longer appropri
ate." "Then she must be dotty. However,
chance that anyhow. You were talking
about what I'd be when I grow up.
The more I think of it myself the more
I see that there Isn't anything at
least anything that would suit me."
"This is bad," wild the Interviewer.
""I don't say It Isn't. It's rotten. But
It's not my fault. I didn't make the
professions nnd things that one's sup
posed to go in for. I could be a gentle
man of Independent means all right,
supposing the governor would stand
the independent means, which he
wouldn't, but I suppose that doesn't
count an anything. I can't make out
what money the governor's got. When
ever I ask him he laughs and treats me
as If I were a mere kid. He can al
ways find the money when he wants
anything. If s when he doesn't want it
that he talks alwut extravagance. Any
how, he says I've got to find an occu
pation of some kind. What I say is
that would be all right if there were
any occupation ycu could think twice
"A career in -the army would not
meet your views?"
"If I could be absolutely certain of a
medal, I'd put up with the other objec
tions, but lots of chaps never get the
chance. Most of them never get It."
"Suppose you did?"
"And suppose I didn't take it. I've
thought that over., and It makes you
sweat. I can tell you. As far us funk
goes I'm just about average. Besides,
where are you to get anj money out of
the army? It Isn't everybody who can
be a commander In chief aud save his
country nnd get large sums voted him.
And I don't fancy the rest get much
pickings out of it."
"But you bewilder me. James Robin
son. At one moment the chief attrac
tion Is the honor and the glory. You
want a medal, but fear you would
never get the chance or If you got the
chance you might not have the cour
age. Then in a moment you stem to
sink to the lowest possible commercial
standpoint, nnd money is the principal
"Yes; I know that idea. If you waut
the glory, you don't want the money,
and If you want the money you don't
want the glory. They're both good
things to have, aren't they? Well, then.
I want them both nnd a pretty big help
of each. If I've got to have an occupa
tion, I want to get money and glory
out of it, otherwise what's the good of
"There are certain Ideals"
"Don't know what you mean. If
they were any use, I suppose I should
have heard of them. Then Aunt Pris
cllla suggested the church."
"And that doesn't suit you either?"
"Suits me a lot better than I should
Milt it. This being an example to
others Is pretty wearying, I can tell
you. I 6ct an example myself, being
in the choir, though I don't pitch it
quite so strong as when I had the solo
parts, and I know what I'm talking
aliout. I'm not so sorry when the holi
days come nnd I can take a rest and
not be so particular. Anil a parson's
got to be a better example than a
choir boy, and he's got to be always
at it. Even on his holidays his coat
gives him away, and he can't do any
thing he naturally would. That would
r.ot do for iko."
"There Is the law."
"Keeps you Indoors too much."
"Medicine keeps you out of doors too
much. I don't wont to be fetched out
of my bed In the middle of a wet night,
and I don't want to be kept in a law
court in the middle of a fine afternoon.
The governor talks about the diplomat
ic service, and I let him. I don't know
anything about it, and I don't think he
knows much more. I doubt it It's
worth my while. I don't want any
thing with examinations or office
hours or rot of that kind In It."
"Then you are looking for a profes
sion which would be extremely lucra
tive, bring In heaps of honor and
5lory. leave you your complete freedom
ind Involve no work of any kind."
"Xow you're talking. I wish every
body else had got as much sense. You
rlon't often strike It absolutely right
like that. Xow if they'd start a pro
fession like that I'd be the first to go
In for it. I wouldn't make a single
objection. It wouldn't have to be dis
cussed for ten minutes."
"I'm looking for that kind of pro
fesslou myself," said the Interviewer
grimly Black and White.
