upon the parting of Ji n Nye's curly

Jim Nye was ruddy. 13 11 Nye until re
cently was of such slendt r build as made
his neight all the more conspicuous:
Jim Nye was rotund, unctuous and in
his later days almost fia jby in his flesh
iness. He had a splendid crown of curly
hair, and he was said to greatly resem
ble the famous actor, Fehter. Bill Nye
has made humorous capital by reason
of his baldness, and that peculiarity and
his spectacles and beaidless face" have
enabled tho caricaturist to suggest a
likeness to the original. Nye himself
in countenance really does not closel v re-

Since Nye's popularity has become
universal wherever tho English lan
guage is read, he is no longer compared
with any man, and no one tries to con

Very many documents of Nye's life
have been written. Most of them are
tlipiant ami many of them are feeble
imitations of the him orist's peculiar
literary mannerisms. He really de
serves more serious treatment." His
popularity, which seems undimmed: his
great pecuniary successes and his recog
nition of late by those who have been
called the arbiters of literary fame in
this country entitle hi n to "something
more than a history whieh is a mere jest.
In all the accounts of Nye nothing
has been said of one qns.lification, which
must have brought bin success sooner
or later, and that is hi.- business capac

nocent delight to thousands, wis pro
I vidi ng well for his family and al with
j the hope that in the future he would be
able to win a more critical reputation in
higher literary endeavor.
His business instincts served him well
also when he entered the lecture field.
The work is hard and dreary and entails
prolonged absences from a most charm
ing family, but it pays well. His profits
are commonly reported to have been as
high as from $-.o,000 to !j0,000 a year,
so that in the past four or five years Mr.
Nye's income has equaled that of the
ereater lawvers. has 1 k n lirm a

ers anu merchants have received from
their business, and has been equaled
among literary men probably only by
the income of the Rev. Dr. Talmage.
He lias ventured into the drama, al
though he is not a dramatist and must
ever rely upon those who have dramatic
instinct and exjierience to make his
plays fit for stage representation. He
has also conquered the literary set, and
is now furnishing a series of articles for
one of the leading magazines.
Mr. Nye's life, however, is in his do
mestic circle, and it is no wonder. His
wite, a charming woman, is just the
I helpmeet for such a man, and with his
; four children he is as much a child as
, any of them. He lives in luxury in a
! beautiful place on Staten Island, and
j has also a residence at Asheville, N. C,
where ho is now convalescing from the
effects of the recent accident from which
j he suffered in Jackson, Miss.
I Mr. Nye has barely entered the prime
! of life, being in his fortieth year, and if
his present prosperity attends him he
seems likely to become tho wealthiest
of our literary men.
