WHAT MAKES POPULARITY ?
Chmmotor, Klndnms, Tact Are Among
Moat Important Factors.
There Is now and then a man whs
poeea aa caring nothing for the opin?
ion of the rest of mankind, and aa
alike Indifferent to their esteem and
good will or thesr condemnation and
dislike. "Poses" is used aJvlsedly,
for no normal msn ever took such an
attitude genuinely, and the assump?
tion of It can usually be sccounted
for by a desire to gain notoriety and
be talked about as a singular person,
different from, and superior to, the
maaa It Is, of course, possible, and
It Is not Infrequent occurrence, for a
man to find his opinion and conv'c
tlons In sharp opposition to those of
the community in which he Is. la
auch case If he is a man of couruge
and conscience, whlls he would prefer
to bs in accord with his neighbors, he
must. If need be, be true to himself
first, no matter what degree of popu?
larity has been his or to what extent
his standing to his colors may forfait
Ons self-approving hour whole years
Of stupid stares and of loud hussars.
While this is true, there is a popu?
larity which Is legitimate and desir?
able, and which Is entirely proper for
a man to seek and cultivate. To some
men It comes without effort; in fact,
seems to be one of the gifts they wore
born to. For others It appears to be
unattainable, no matter how much
they may strive for It. There are a
few men who are exceptionally attrac?
tive and likeable, by temperament
and disposition, carrying with them
everywhere an atmosphere of kindli?
ness and good humor, always unsel?
fish and obliging, and endowed with
such graces and charm that everyone
likes and praises. "The most popular
man In his class." "the royal good
fellow," on everybody's Hps, Is born,
Nevertheless, a man without extra?
ordinary gifts, If he but possesses
tact, which can be acquired, may. by
patience and Judicious care and effort,
make himself universally popular. H<
must. In the first place, of course,
have the solid basis of character
worthy of esteem if he wishes to be?
come generally liked for other quail
ties. Then he must proceed by ul
wsys, under all circumstances, shew?
ing the true kindness-?which springs
from a good heart. It is. perhaps, the
most Important thing of all, the ens
quality which were It pnlversal, would
transform the earth.
The man who never forgets to be
kind whenever there Is opportunity
has laid the cornerstone of a sat'sfy- I
Ins; popularity. Kindness in its broad ,
sense implies fairness also. If you uro
kind to a person you must of necessi?
ty, If called on to judge him or to de?
cide between his Inrests and those
of another or your '<wn, bo fa*i b#
him. There Is nott 1 ig a man fot-ls
sooner or more keen y than a Inck of
fairness in the treatment he receives.
The demand for it springs from the
same univrsal Instinct that claims Jus I
?ice, which ?s fairness. The ve?*y ehll
i^rei understand \t, and are quick to
cor.f.emn anything in their work or
g:\ines that "is n ?t fair." Kindn<??
alto carr ? s with it unvarying courto*/
and politeness, even to those who are
? hurllsh and rude. Nothing goes fu. -
ther in disarming dislike and trans?
mitting indifference into liking. When
you are a host treat all your guests,
no matter what differences may exist
between them, with equal attention
and consideration, and let your inter?
course with them be conversation,
and not talking all on one side.
Kindness also in its full sense is not
confined to demeanor, but includes
generosity. A man to be popular
must not only be ready, but
must have the disposition to share
what is good and desirable with his
friends and companions, and to be?
stow of his abundance upon the
needy. It Is better to help as many
as you can, even If It be but a little,
rather than to do a great deal for a
few. It is Important to remember,
too, that even kindness must be exer?
cised with tact or it may defeat Its
own object. A tactful man can refuse,
a request and make a friend where
a blundering, blunt, untactful one will
alienate a friend In granting a favor.
Tact is the indispensable social lub?
ricant without which, no matter how
well adjusted the machine may be,
there will be friction and unpleasant
These are the main points which a
man should keep in view who desires
popularity. There are a few minor
ones. Dress as well as your income
admits, but always without ostenta?
tion or display, and always with scru?
pulous neatness and cleanliness.
Never put on any airs, and never try
to Imitate the style or manners of
anyone else. Be perfectly natural
and unaffected. Some very good peo
pl bring themselves into ridicule by
little mannerism and affectations
which they have somehow come to
think are agreeable or desirable to
distinguish them. There cannot
be a greater mistake. In short,
if you want to be popular, and
it is a laudable desire, be always kind
and always a lady or gentleman. If
you are always kind in a genial, tact?
ful way and always a lady or gen?
tleman you will be popular, whether
you want to or not.?Cincinnati In?

STATES TO GET A SHAKE.
Jamefl R. Garneld Discusses Rental
Of Water Powers.
Washington. Feb. 18.?All of the
Administration bills providing for
conservation of natural resources will
be considered by a subcommittee of
the Senate Committee on public lands*
to be composed of Senator Smoot
(chairman), Clark, of Wyoming;
DIxon, Chamberlain and Hugcs. Hear
ings will be given.
A hearing was given today by the
full committee on Public Lands to
former Secretary of the Interior
James R. Garneld. He discussed
chiefly the bill relating to the de
, velopment of waterpower through the
1 leasing of the public land adjacent to
I the water. As a general principle he
approved the proposition of Secretary
Ealllnger, but suggested a number of
changes, which convinced the com?
mittee that considerable attention
must be given to the questions Invol?
Mr. Garfleld is of the opinion that
the waterpower should be developed
by co-operation of the Federal and
State governments. He suggested
that 25 per cent, of the proceeds
from rentals be paid by the national
Government to the Staes in which
the power is developed; and later
said the States might be given as
much as 75 per cent, of the rentals.
The Loyal Element In India.
A striking development In India
in connection with the agitation of
the Hindus for the expulsion of the
English Is the coming forward of
Mohammedans as loyal upholders of
the existing government. at Delhi
was held recently the All-India Mos?
lem League, composed of represent?
atives of 63,000,000 Mohammedans.
Aga Kahn In his Inaugural address
said that his co-rellglonlsts gratefully
accepted the new measures of self
government granted by the Emperor
and asked all races to use the oppor?
tunity thus created for the develop?
ment of India, with a view of further
advances in constitutional govern?
ment. The Moslem idea, he said, is
to co-operate will all other races
who accept the cardinal principle of
the orderly development of India un?
der the Imperial crown. Aga Khan
denied that partiality had been
shown to the Mohammedans in ^the
recent reforms. The duty of all race&
he declared, was to prove their active
loyalty to the soverlgn?a warm and
passionate attachment to the Imper?
ial house under which India had
made gigantic strides. The British
dynasty was pronounced the abiding
center of real national unity for all
Indians. Other speakers echoed
these sentiments, lauding Great
Brltlan's great achievements In India.
Read between the lines, the
speeches reveal the antipathy of the
Mohammedans to the political move?
ment In which the Hindus are leaders.
Their attitude is dictated by differ?
ences of history and temperament, as
well as religion. The Mohammedans
are a fighting element. They enter?
ed India In the year 1001 as con?
querors and dominated a great part
of it till British rule began, In 1757.
Their attitude toward the Hindus is
somewhat contemptuous. The latter,
being more numerous and more
given to declamation, make the
greater noise, but the Mohammedans,
more virile and forceful, are quite
ready to defend their position or take
the aggressive. The British rely up?
on the Mohammedans to be their
allies should the present unrest
result in rebellion and fighting. The
Hindus complain that the British in
the recent reforms have given the
Mohammedans consideration out of
all proportion to their numbers, but
this both the British and the Moham?
medans deny. "Divide and conquer''
is the motto of the present masters
of India. They now have a chance
to apply it. They have to deal with
a formidable ag'tatlon among their
210,000,000 Hindu subjects, but they
have in the Mohammedan element
of the population an instrument of
empire which will not fail to do them
great service, if treated with a fair
degree or prespect.

An Effective Fetish.
Ngalyema was an African, and an
enterprising trader in ivory and slaves
holding the position of chief of the
Stanley Poo] district. He had de?
manded, wrote Sir Henry M. Stanley
in his recently published "Autobiog
raphy." and also received, a good!j
sum for granting Stanley the pri' li?
ege of establishing a station where
up-river navigation begins. Time
passed, and Ngalyema chose to for?
get this transaction, and made an
impudent demand for mor? mom y.
Duly warned, however, Stanley had
prepared a surprise for him.
I had hung a great Chinese gong
conspicuously near the princial tent.
All my men were hidden, some In the
steamboat on top of the wagon; and
In Its shadow was a cool place, where
the warriors would gladly rest after
a ten-mile march. Other of my men
lay still as death under tarpaulins,
under bundles of grass, and in the
bush round the camp. By the time
the drum-taps and horns announced
Ngalyema's arrival, the camp seemed
Ngalyema was strangely cold at my
hearty greeting, and said, "Has not
my brother forgotten his road? What
does he mean by coming to this
"Nay, it is Ngalyema who has for?
gotten the blood-bond that exists be?
tween us. It is Ngalyema who has
forgotten the mountains of goods
which I paid him. What words are
these of my brother?"
Speech find counter-speech follow?
ed. Ngalyema had exhausted his
arguments; but It was not easy to
break faith and be uncivil without
plausible excuse. His eyes reaching
round to discover an excuse to fight,
when they rested on the round, bur?
nished face of the Chinese gong.
"What is that?" he said.
"Ah, that?that Is a fetish."
"A fetish! A fetish for what?"
"It is a war fetish, Ngalyema. The
slightest sound of that would fill this
empty camp with hundreds of angry
warriors; they would drop from
above, they would spring up from
the ground, from the forest about,
"Sho! Tell that story to the obi
women, and not to a chief like Ngaly?
ema. My boy tells me It Is a kind of
bell. Strike It and let me hear it."
"O Ngalyema, my brother, the con?
sequence would be too dreadful! Do
not think of such a thing!"
"Strike it I say."
I struck it hard and fast, and the
clangorous roll rang out like thun?
der in the stillness.
Only for a few seconds, however,
for a tempest of human voices was
heard bursting into frightful discords,
and from above, right upon the heads
of the astonished warriors, leaped yel?
ling men; and from tents, the huts,
the forest round about, they came by
sixes, dozens and scores, gelling like
I madmen, and seemingly animated
with uncontrollable rage.
The painted warriors became panic
stricken; they forgot their chief and
all thoughts of loyalty, and fled on
the Instant, fear lifting their heels
high in the air.
But Ngalyema and his son did not
fly. They caught the tails of my coat,
! and began to dance from side to side,
I a loving triplet, myself being fore?
most, to ward off the blows savagely
aimed at my "brothers," and cheer?
fully crying cut:
"Hold fast to me my brothers! I
will defend you to the last drop of my
blood! Come one, come all!"
Presently the order was given, "Fall
in!" and quickly the men stood in,
two long lines in beautiful order.
Ngalyema relaxed his hold on my
coat tails, and crept fr3m behind,
breathing more freely.
"Eh, Mamma!" he exclaimed.
"Where did all these people come
"Ah, Ngalyema," I said, "did I not
tell you it was a powerful fetish? Let
me strike it again, and show you what
else It can do."
, "No, no!" he shrieked. "I have
seen enough."?Youths Companion.
