That congress will do a little in

Carnfgn's Praise of Porer y.
New York World: According to Mr.
Carnegie "there is nothing so valuable
as to be born in poverty ami to b
compelled to go forth and battle for
yourself." Many will applaud the sa
ing. But is it true?
The poor have no monopoly of vir
tue or of intelligence. Extreme pover
ty besieges the one and dulls the other.
It is easy to say that the vapid and vi
cious young man of fortune would have
Ik c n a decent fellow if bom to poverty,
but it is hard to prove. With his tem
perament he might still have been a
burden upon society.
The man of unusual talent or genius
if bom in poverty does sometimes es
cape from his disadvantages to do
great work. Hut the exceptional man
of inherited wealth also conquers his
environmeni and attacks his task with
the energy of educated ambition. Zoolo
gists will tell Mr. Carnegie that it is not
struggle that develops races aud spe
cies, but the favorable environmeni
that permits them to struggle success
fully. Were it otherwise the Esqui
maux would be the "Supermen.'
In the cii-e of the successful self
made ir;:,n g; 'ilt n years are lost. What
good did i: do him that Sohliemanii
must make his tort u tie before spending
it in unov ring the buried cities ot
Greece? Or Cecil Rhode's that he inns:
use his best years in making money
and die at the threshold of Lis political
plans? Or Carnegie himself that he
was not free to consider problems dear
er to him than those of money making
until his active years had passed?
Suppose Keats had been lxjrn to the
wealth of Byron, might h- not with
education and travel and outdoor life
have reached a sane old age. instead
of dying of the foul air of his ioor
lodging and his stuffy chemist's shop?
Might he not have enriched English
letters with peiems beyond price and
have left his own fame ar far mote se
cure? These are questions easy to ask. im
possible? to answer. To burst through
the bonds of extreme poverty and rise
to eminent usefulness is creditable. To
make of wealth a means of culture and
of service rather than of weak sedf-in-dtilger.ee
is also creditable. It is char
acter, not condition, that counts.
Saved by Dynamite.
Sometimes, a flaming city is saved
by dynamiting a space that the fire
cannot cross. Sometimes, a cough
hangs on so long, you feel as if noth
Ing but dynamite would cure it. Z. T.
Gray, of Calhoun, Ga., writes: "Mj

which kept her awake nights. Two
physicians could not help her; so she
took Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, Coughs and Colds, and

DAILY SHORT STORY
A MOORISH WEDDING.
In the city of Tangier there lived a
young man. Ilamet el Zagel. Flamet
was the son of a wealthy father, wel!
educated and possessed of a fair share
of manly beauty. Tangier is built on a
tide bill overlooking the blue Mediter
ranean directly opposite Gibraltar.
There are rows of guns with which to
defend the town placed behind bat
teries on the hillside. Oue morning
Ilamet was walking along this fortifi
cation, looking out upon the sea and
the dock, at the end of which a Euro
Iean ship was lelng loaded with cat
tl. A rope was fastened around the
horns of each and the poor beast
drawn up the ship's side kicking and
struggling. "While Ilamet was looking
ou a young girl came by, Ler face? cov
ered, as is the universal custom in
Morocco, aud also stood watching the
raising of the cattle. The process
seeineel so cruel that the girl was vis
ibly affected by -it. Indeed, so indig
nant was she that she forgot to bold
ber head covering over her face, per
mitting it to fall upon ber shoulders,
llauiet saw n teautiful face full of
sympathy and indignation, unconscious
of its loveliness aud tbat it was ob
served. If a Moor can love, and that at
first sight. Ilamet loved the girl before
bim. At any rate, be never forgot the
picture of loveliness be was permitted
to look ujkhi, contrary to Moorish law.
The girl turned and. se-edug that her
face was c.pocd to the gaze of a
handsome young man looking at Iht
with a lover's gaze, blushed, quickly
eovered up her faee and went on. A
moment Iater she was Joined by an at
tendant aud the two disapieared be
hind the hillside.
When we consider that the girl was
affected similarly to the man we might
expect tlie affair to terminate in a hap
py marriage. But in Morocco court
ship is unknown, a Wtrothed pair uev
er seeding each other till after they
have been married.
Ilamet was already embarked in the
preliminaries of marriage. Negotia
tions were in pretgri'ss for a union with
the daughter of a wealthy man from
the interior who bad just .settled in
Tangier. Of course Ilamet and the girl
had never met and would not bepertnit
ted to me'Ot till after marriage- Ilamet
had ben-n satisfied until be lieid st;eu
the girl on the fortress. After that his
dissatisfaction was intense. Aa for the;
girl, one of be'r sisters bad committed
suicide rather than marry a man she
had never see-n. being in love with an
other. Ilauiet's fiancee was carefully
watched by her parents for fear of a
similar catastrophe, but as it did not
apiear that she had a lover it was as
sumed there would be no trouble. A
contract ef marriage was signed le
tween Ilamet el Zagel and Kwraga Has

Moorish brides are carried to their
husbands at night. On the evening of
Hamet's and Zoraga's marriage, it be
ing a marriage in high life, the streets
along which Zoraga is to be taken are
crowded with people. Presently her
father's slaves come along scattering
sherbets, sweetmeats and e-oins. Then
comes a fantastically dressed negress
leading a white mule. On the mule's
back is fixed a sort of e-age. When the
wedding pnK-essiOn reaches the bouse
of the bride's father the ne'gress takes
the cage and carries- it Into the bouse.
From within lamentations are hearel.
Indicating that the bride is taking leave
of those she has loved from infanu-y to
go into the iossession of a man she has
If Zoraga's costume indicated that
she was a bride, her countenance did
not. In her eye was a faraway look, u
loek of regret. She reminded those
about ber ef a maiden going to the sac
rifice. Her mother looked at her wist
fully, anxiously, and asked her to say
If there was any one she loved. The
loss of one daughter admonished the
parent that she might lose another
from the same cause. But Zoraga
made no reply to the question. She
clung about her mothers neck till ber
father reminded ber that ber husband
On the street the old woman reap
leared, staggering under the weight of
the box whieh now contained the bride.
Box and brid- were plaed on the
mule, and the negress led them. Her
alded by music, friends eoming out of
houses to offer congratulations, they at
last came to the bouse of the groom.
Here the woman tixk the bride from
the box. smoothed br dress und ld
her into the bouse. Bidding her good
by, the nurse left the room to the
mother-in-law. who approached-to have
a look at her son's wife.
Considering that Zoraga's sister had
taken ber life rather than be the wife
of a man she did not love, thu bride's
parents were remiss in not tearchiug
her before she left her borne. Her
nurse had scarcely left ber when she
drew a little curved knife, a miniature
scimlter, from ber bosom and wa
about to plunge it into her breast when
her mother in-law caught her arm and
took, the knife away from her.
There was nothing now to elo but
meet the groom. As the mother left
the room he entered. Zoraga, aeford
lag to custom, threw- herself at hiseet.
She did not look up at him. for she did
not wish to see him. He raised her
with trembling bands and averted
eyes, thinking of the girl he loved.
Suddenly their eyes met. Both start
ed. A flood of joy welled In the heart
of each, appearing on Ha met" a face in
every feature, on Zoraga's in a blush,
mingled with delight. Hanaet saw the
girl he bad seen on the for trees; Zoraga
saw the man who had then and tfaer
won her heart with a single look.
