Some Notable Instanoes of Men
Come to Greatness Through
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
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
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

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.

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

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.

A Iomedy For Snake Bite.

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.
