VERSATILE AMERICAN Why He Is the Best Workman in the World. The Englishman has none of that all around mental activity which distinguishes the American. He knows only one thing -that by which he earns his living: and he Sloes not desire to know anythilng else; frr less is lie ashamed of not knowing it. A London policeman, if you ask him about some distant street or building of im portance, will reply civilly, but un abashed: "I can't tell you, sir; that is not on my beat." An American policeman would know the fact, and if he did not know it, he would feel called upon to apoligize for his ignorance. In a remote ,Maine village there w'as recently some occasion for a plumber nrd a very good one was forthwith itm provised from a carpenter. Such a thing would be impossible in England, Many a New England farmer can build or repair his barn, paint and plaster his house, "tinker" his mowing machine, shoe his 'horse, doctor his cow, break his colt, row or sail his boat, "butcher" his pig, shear his sheep, skin a fox, track a deer, hive Ices, serve as a guide or lumberman, play the fiddle, solve a problem in arithmetic, muake a good speech in town meeting, and do a hundred other things besides. There is probably not a man in all England who can do half so many things.
