Some Notable Instanoes of Men Come to Greatness Through Luok. Sterllg Qualities Ofrtn Fail to Push a Man Into Promlnenoe, Except as Chance Alds Chance is everything. Opportunity and luck mean much. The great race, it seems to me, is but a creature of conditions. Now and then we hear individuals spoken of as: "He is a man of programme. He fixes a course artl adheres to it." And that re mark is generally made concerning some one who has achieved success, either as a money getter or holder, or as a factor on some elevated plane of life, but when you come to think of it the beggar in the street may. be quite as determined in his pro gramme, and possibly it is his very pro gramme that keeps him where he is. Burglars, highwaymen and rascals gen erally are quite as likely to he men of pro gramme, to which they adhere with a de termination that may well be called obstt nate, as any others. My own theoryis that mankind is made what it is by circumn stances. Very few of us withdeliberate in tent surveyed the country of opportunity. Very few of us with ax in hand cleared away a path through what appeared an im penetrable forest, which being followed, led to a partial clearing, where a persistent labor with the ax and the grub furnished us a fallow field in which to plant the seed of today that we might reap the harvest of tomorrow. I am very sure I didn't. And as I look around me I am quite con vinced that the very large majority of my fellow citizens did no such a thing. What makes this man a preacher, this a writer, this a doctor, this a soapmaker, this a sales man, this a banker? In some instances it is natural fitness unquestionably, but in a very great majority of cases it is simply the outcome of all controlling circum stances and conditions. Take the case of Henry Ward Beecher. Being a clergyman's son, he, like all his father's children, studied for the ministry. I forget how many sons the old gentleman had, but six, at all events, every one of whom became a clergyman. One of them was no more fit to be a preacher than I. One would have made a most admirable teacher, professor, but he is no preacher. In fact, of them all the two who succeeded in life were Henry Ward and Thomas K., but they were sons of Lyman Beecher, and it was as natural for them to yield to the all controlling circumstances and conditions of their father's family and fall into the min isterial line as it is for the son of a butcher to follow his father's calling. But to return to Beecher. When he was in the west, nothing but an accident pre vented his becoming a railroad man. You didn't know that, did you? He was pastor of a church in Indianapolis. A new rail road was projected, and a superintendent was to be chosen. A bank president who was one of the chief directors had been greatly impressed with the go ahead man ner and zeal of the young parson, and con cluding that he was possessed of the qual ities that would make him a first rate rail road official proposed his name. The con test was close. IBeecher lost by one vote. Now suppose for a moment that he had been successful. He would have gone ahead in his calling, and the fire ant energy and vital industry which were prominent among his qualities would rapidly,unquestionably, have forced him to the front. And then, growing as the west grew, nothing under heaven could have kept him out of politics, and the large probabilities are that he would have become a foremost figure in national councils, with a seat in the senate and possibly a home in the WhiteHouse. It was a little thing that switched him. One vote settled the mat ter. As it was with Beecher, so unques tionably it is with multitudes of men less conspicuous. Not many years ago a humble Irish American worker was sticking type in the composing room of a neirhboring city. 'The newspaper was not very successful then. Its editor died. None of the reporters seemed quite up to the mark, and the pro prietor, a nervous, fidgety man, allowed things to drift. The reporters printed what they pleased. Several paragraphs pertinent, timely, evincing thought, were written by a compositor and handed to the proprietor, who published them. They attracted at tention. He asked him to write more. In a little while Thomas Kinsella became the editor of the Brooklyn Eagle, which ere he died was of the five chief newspaper prop erties in the country. If the editor of that paper had continued his work, Kinsella would have remained in the composing room, instead of which he left his case, en tered the sanctum, formed political andl linancial alliances, went to congress and (lied a comparatively wealthy and a very generally esteemed citizen of that great town. It was the purest incident of an accident that secured for himl a commanding posi tion and a wide felt influence in affairs. What nonsense it would be to say that Gar lield when he was driving horses on a tow path had any idea, any plan, any pro gramme, the end of which was the presi dticy of the United Statesl It was chance, c·cident, which gavq him opportunity aft Ir opportunity, and it was an industrious, honest utilization of the chance and of the (;pportunity which advanced him step by -tep, but even there see how he was favored by circumstances. The story is familiar to you all. Twynty thousand people were packed ln the great :.semhlage hall in Chicago. Ten thousand ,f them cheered themselves hoarse over the inmne of Grant, while the other 10,000 en deavored to drown the noise made by hur rabing and clapping andl cheering for Blaine. Now, if tGrant ' frie-nds had been the stronger in the convention, there would Dave been no Garlield, or if llauine's friends had had sduticiint strengtih to carry the day Garfield would have been nowhere. The happy Leecident was that there was a. divitred coui, efitiull, so far ts those nanles \;ere camernerl, and the compromise was nlarliekl's sp. ortunity. T'hat's my pout. It is not that Garfield ray not comUl. eient, not that he wasn't sn b ,,eLuelitily -leteid, not thaltt he couldn't fill tle hill, but that whatever might have beenl his desire, aiiniltionll, ihopes, it was iothinlg but thu, bitter, rellentless tight be I weeni tihe friends of llaine anud lG rant that ,gave hinm the opplortunity.

A Plea For the Spoun. Thackeray, it will be remembered, makes it earnest plea in his "Book of Snobs" for i e fork, excoriating a wretch whom hoilo .ected eating peas with a knife. Now the hioston Journal conies to the front as the chlampion of the spoon. The Journal be lleves it deterts a (.sp.Rlttytp on the vlrt of tI' rora to ustrp tms powers ana aunnes d the spoon. It protests against' eating Ion cream with a fork and adds, "What com parison in delight ctu there be between the forked transit front plate to mouth of scat tering peas, conscious of their fate, and the caho assurance of the delicious globules contained safely ip the hollow of a spoon?" It remains to be seen what answer the Bos ton devotees of the fork will make to this indlctment.--New York Tribune. Iledges For flltady Placer. It is often desirable to have hedges along lines where large trees are already growing. Evergreens are wholly unfitted for these situations. Only deciduous shrube can be employed. Among the best of these are the various varieties of privet. They stand dry ground better than almost anything else. It is not so much the shade which injures the hedges in these situations as it is the drying of the ground by the roots of the trees. When welmagine the enormous amount of moisture transpiring from thon sands of leaves of trees, we can readily see how dry the ground must he which hne to supply this moisture. But those who have practical experience understand this with out even a thought of the philosophy in volved.-Meehla's Monthly. Small Talk. Young Gent (at a party, to his neighbor) -What a charming apparition, that lady yonder with the golden bhsrl "Yes, that hair cost a good 3,000 francs." "And those teeth-a veritable casket of pearls." "Patent enamel.. Guaranteed to last three years." "In short, she is an angel." "Not bad looking, you mean to say?" "Come, sir, I won't allow you to speak so slightingly of a person whom you don't know." "I know her a great deal better than you do-she's my wife!"-Charivari. Popular Letter Boxes. There is a tendency to drop more letters in the letter boxes than formerly. I sup pose it is because the public has learned that mailing by dropping in the boxes is as reliable as the postoffice. It is not uncom mon for a mail collector to bring in 45 pounds of letters at 6 o'clock in the after noon. This is especially true around the markets. It often happens that a collector will get his bag full by the time he hascov ered half of his route and will have to go the second time to cover the other halft Boston Globe. Coral From Italy. Much of the costly red, white and pink coral used for ornamental purposes is ob tained from the coast of Italy. Men go out in boats and drag the rocky bottom of streams with wooden frames or nets, in which the coral becomes entangled, but the delicate branches are crushed in this way. The finest coral is obtained by diving. Philadelphia Ledger. A Iomedy For Snake Bite. A remedy for rattlesnake bite employed by the superstitious of the mountain re gions of middle and eastern Pennsylvania is to cut a live chicken in two and to place the warm, raw surface of half of it upon the part bitten by the snake.-Science.

Tihe Violent Commotion In the stomash and bowels prodnced by a violent purgative and its consequent drenching action, never are, because it is impossible they should be, followed by per manent good effects. No speciio which weakens and convulses the organs for whose relief it ie used can do good. Blue pills, calomel, podyphyllin, salts and senna, vegetable or mineral puorative pills, are drastio remedies generally void of benefit. A reliable and effective substitute for them Is Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, which ef fects a change both natural and thorough in the bowels when they are constlpated. A sufficient and regular secretion of bile by the liver and sound digestion are also promoted by its use. Malaria in all its forms. rheumatiser and kidney trouble are obviated by this fine reformer of disor dered conditions of the system. A wine glassful three times a day is about the dose. FREE!
