FAME WON BY ACCIDENT.
An ArtWt'i Flrt SaervMtal rittur tVai
The great French painter, Bastien
Lepage, who died lately, was pursued
by unmerciful disaster through hli
youth in his efforts to study art. Hlf
mother worked In the fields to keer
that sickly boy at school. At fifteen
lie went to Paris alone, starred for
seven years, painted without success,
but still painted. Ha had just finished
a picture to send to the salon when
Paris was besieged, and he rushed with
his comrades to the trenches.
On the first day a shell fell Into hif
studio, and destroyed his picture, and
another shell fell at his feet, wound
ing him. He was can led home and
lay HI and Idle for two years. Then
ho returned to Parts, and, reduced to
absolute want, painted cheap fans for
a living. One day a manufacturer of
some patent medicine ordered a pic
ture from him to illustrate its virtues.
Xenagc. who was sincere, gavehis best
work to the advertisement. He painted '
a landscape in the April sunlight; the
leaves of tender green quivered in the
breeze; a group of beautiful girls gath
ered around a fountain from which the
elixir of youth sprang ln a bubbling
stream. Lepage believed there was
real merit in it.
"Let me offer It at the salon," he
asked his patron.
The manufacturer was delighted.
"Hut Arst paint a rainbow arching
over the fountain," he said, "with tho
name of my medicine upon It." Lepage
refused. "Then I will not pay you a
sou for the picture!" Tho price of this
picture meant bread for months, and
tho painter had long needed bread.
The chance of admission to the salon
was small. He hesitated. Then ho
silenced his hunger, and carried the
canvas to the salon. It was admitted
Its great success insured Lepage a
place tn public recognition, and his
later work a place among the greatest
of living artists. Current Literature.

Hawthorne calls "the gift of

that rooms which had been hard and

work their spells upon unlovely sur

BtiIqvs soul with knapsack strapped
upon Its back is yet reported to be on
1 an extended march. My tru& nama is
1 Edward Thornton. I assumed the.
' name I now bear when I enlisted.
"My mother died when I was but a
year old and a few months later my
I father followed her. leaving me in the
' care of a very wealthy aunt In the city
' of Urooklyn, X. Y. She was my
father's only sister, nad took me to her
j own luxurious home and reared mo as
j her own child, lavishing upon me her
j deepest love. I was all she had to love.
nntl Iroin cnlldhood uie dear, good
woman fairly idolized tne nnd gratified
my every wish. When I reached a
proper age competent teachers were
secured for me, and, developing a love
for study, I progressed so rapidly that
at the early age of seventeen I was the
possessor of a liberal education and
fitted to fill a responsible position in
the business world. As I before told
you, I acquired a deep love for drawing
and painting, for which I am now truly
' thankful, for Ihe only real pleasure I
now derive from life I find amid these
western solitudes with my sketch book
"When my cducntlon was completed
mj good aunt supplied me liberally with
money, and In her solicitude for my
pleasure and enjoyment paid little at
tention to my moral training. I was
of a lively, fun-loving disposition, and
in choosing my companions I selected
kindred spirits who would join me In
any wild lark that promised sport.
"One night at a banquet given In hon
or of the birthday of a young lady friend
of my aunt I listened to the smiling
entreaties of the fair hostess to drink
her health, and accepted from her hand
my first glass of -wine. Ah! Miss San
ford, the first downward step toward
the depths of drunken degradation Is
often taken at the invitation of a
thoughtless fair woman with a glass of
sparkling wine In her jeweled hand,
when she little dreams that what she re
gards as but a trifling act of hospitality
Is the seal of doom upon a life that might
otherwise be bright and useful. The
wine seemed to flood my soul with Its
rosy warmth and to quicken my senses,
and other draughts of the ruby liquid fol
lowed until I was taken home in a car
riage supported in my aunt's arms, in a
state of stupid intoxication.
"When I came down from ray cham
ber the next morning feeling as guilty
as a felon approaching the bar of jus
tice, my aunt met me with a smile,
playfully chldcd mc for having taken
just a drop too much, and cautioned me
to be careful and not in future overesti
mate my bibulous powers. That same
night 1 again sought the false cheer of
the wine cup.
"Lower and lower I went in my
downward course, the demon of drink
sinking its poisonous talons deeper and
deeper into ay soul. No word of re
buke ever fell from my aunt's lips. She
continued to keep my purse well filled,
the good creature believing .ay crop of
wild oats would soon be sown and I
would then settle down Into respect
able, sober manhood.
"Two years ago this very day tho
date Is a notable one to rnc, for it is
the second onnlversary of my enlist
ment I went on a carouse with a
couple of my boon companions. In a
saloon in Sew York wo met a sergeant
of artillery, then attached to a recruit
ing office In that city. He was a hand
some, dashing young fellow and I at
once took 6 great fancy to htm and
asked him to join us In our revels. Re
tiring to a private room In the rear of
tho saloon I ordered wine, and we were
soon deeply under tho Influence of tho
seductive liquor. Our potations grew
deeper and deeper until my two com
panions fell Into a drunken sleep In their

but I told him that gentlemen of our
standing should ride, and I ordered a

" 'Come and enlist with me, old fel
low,' he said. 'You will have nothing
to do but wear a uniform and hang
around with me looking for recruits,
and we will have a glorious time in
this gay city.'
"In my irresponsible state I agreed
to his proposition and ordered the driv
er to take us to the street and the num
bcr he named. I have a dim, indistinct
recollection of ascending a stairway
supported by the sergeant, of him teU
Ing me to give the name of Richard
Brown, of replying to some questions
propounded by an officer, and then of
robing my hand and taking an oath.
A few moments later, with a lot of men.
I was taken to a boat and helped on
board, and there I fell into a drunken
"I awoke the next morning in a long
room filled with men, and in answer to
my queries was told that I was on
Governor's Island and was as enlisted
i man in the United States army. You
1 J -
can imagine my amazement at this
startling revelation. I walked about
the room In a half dazed condition, my
brain being yet prostrate from the ca
rouse of tho previous day. During the
forenoon I was supplied with the uni
form and necessary outfit of tho private
soMlcr, and was notified that I had
. 5 troop, Sixth caral-
ry, and would start for the far western
frontier on the following morning.
"After donning my uniform I walked
down tr the water's edge and sat down
on a dismantled cannon to reflect on
my mad nctiou. My brain seemed to
have shaken off ihe grip of the liquor '
which had been the cause of placing me j
in such a distressing position, and I !
thank Uod that I was able to take a I
philosophic view of the matter. Ere 1 1
left the spot I began to look upon my j
enlistment as a blessing. I reasoned '
thnt had I continued to pursus the
downward course Into which I had
fallen I would sink lower and lower
and one dav fill a drunkard's irrave.
In the United States service I would !
be under restraint and be far re
moved from tho temptations of a great
city and from the companions who
were fast leading mc toward utter
ruin. In the service I could reform,
and by contact with hardships and pri
vations fit myself to cope with the
rougher aspects of Ufa should fortune
ever desert me. Then and tiere I
firmly resolved to serve faithfully for
the term of my enlistment.
"I did more. Miss fianford. I swore
In the presence of Almighty God and of
the spirit of my angel mother In
Heaven that as long as I should live
not another drop of Intoxicating liquor
should ever pass my lips."
The Impulsive girl reached forward
and grasped his hand, the tears stream
ing down her checks. She essayed to
speak but could not, and dajhlng the
tear from his own eyes he continued:
"With these resolutions firmly Im
planted in my mind I returned to the
barracks with a lighter heart, and
wrote a long letter to my aunt in
which I called Into requisition all my
powers of eloquence to convince her
that it was all for the best, and that
my moral salvation was tho stake for
which I was playing. I consoled the
dear old woman as best I could, and
promised her that if God spared our
lives I would return to her nt the ex
piration of my term of enlistment as a
man of whom she could be proud. I
did not tell her of my assumed name
nor of my destination, for I weU knew
she would spend her entire fortune, if
necessary, to secure my release.
"I was sent to the west with other
recruits, and the experiences of my two
years' service have been but the same
as those of other cavalry soldiers at a
frontier post. I have triod to faithful
ly perform every duty assigned mc. and
from the fact that I have never re
ceived a reprimand from those In
authority I am led to believe I have
been a good soldier.
"That Is my story, Miss Sanford.
You may now understand my motive
when I repeat to you that under no
circumstances would I have you make
an effort to secure my discharge."
Alice had listened to his recital with
the deepest interest, and at its conclu
sion she again extended her hand and
"Mr. Thornton, I respect and honor
you. Your determination to do your
duty faithfully and to bury your in
clination to lead a dissolute life in the
hardships and rigors of service in the
army Is a noble one. I pray God that
your future may shine out all the more
resplendent from such a dark back
ground. There Is, I hope, no shadow
of deceit in my nature, and I frankly
tell you that I believe you to be a true,
honest and upright man whose heart
Is swayed by the most noble Impulses,
even though you may wear the garb of
a private soldier. I am glad I met you,
and I shall highly prize your friend

"Pardon tho Interruption, Miss San

in life in your sympathy for the unfor

you lose sight of the fact that CoL San
ford would never permit a private sol
dier to enter his house, unless in the
line of military duty."
A shadow flitted over her bright
young face, nnd In a tender tone of
voice she replied:
"Yes, I had forgotten. In contemplat
ing the man my eyes were closed to hLs
station in life. What you say is but too
true. Papa is unflinchingly firm in his
ideas of the impregnability of the so
cial barrier which separates the men in

Yet I hope to see you frequently when
you are'out sketching. I feel a very
deep interest in you, Mr. Thornton,
nnd I do trust unclouded happiness
may dawn upon you and ever remain
with you at the close of your army life."
"God bless you for your cheering

posed upon mo."
"Your term cf service will soon pass,
and it must be a cheering reflection to
you that you will then return to the
enlovmcnts of civil life and to the so
ciety for which you are so well fitted. J
I feel that a bright future lies before
you, Mr. Thornton, and you will appre
ciate the blessings of life all the more
with this experience to look back upon.
But I must go now. Papa will becomo
uneasy at my long absence. Will you
kindly assist me to mount my pony?"
With his aid she sprang lightly into
tha saddle, and once more extending
her hand said:
"Good-by. I thank you for tho pleas

pressed her, and as she rode along
she endeavored to analyze her feelings
toward him and determine what it
was that caused her to feel such

young soldier. In her garrison life 1
she had met but few young men, and J
these were mostly officers of the army.
True, thoy were polished gentlemen
and studiously polite In their demean-1
or toward her, yet In the actions of ,
each she could observe an air of disci-1
pl'ncd dignity that seemed to cast a J
chiil over his social qualities, and'
even Impart an icy ring to his laugh
ter when called upon to do honor to a
refined joke or sally of wit. In Pri-'
vatc Brown she read a noble nature,
unselfish and devoid of aught but man
ly pride, a nature luminous with the i
gold of self-sacrificing heroism in his
battle with life. She saw In him a
gentleman of culture a man as great

Meetings between Private Brown

of friendship sprang up between the
young people, a sort of brotherly and i
sisterly affection, nnd they seemed I
never so happy as when ln each other's I
society. Bit by bit Alice had drawn
from him many little details of his Ufa
not embodied In the story he had told
her, nnd his manly character and bril- (
liant intellect shone in her eyes with
more luminous power as by deft ques
tioning she gradually unfolded his'
past history. She lost sight of his
rank, of the humble sphere in which
he moved, and contemplated him only
as a gentleman of lofty station bowing
for the nonce beneath a passing cloud
of adversity, and she looked upon It as '
a Christian duty and prlvUege to do all ,
In her power to pluck the thorns from
the path which circumstances com-'
polled him to tread. She felt that Mr.
Thornton was her equal from a social
point of view, and soon came to regard
him as one entirely worthy of her)
friendship and esteem. As Private
Brown he was but an ordinary cog in
the great machinery of war and mil
itary duty. She seldom saw him on
duty in fact, she had but once noticed
him in the ranks, end then at a review
of the troops at tho post, and his sol

called from her brain a thought which i
her lips half whispered: j
