An Important Factor In the Saceeaa of ViionK Men Starting Out lu Life. It is doubtful if the educational value of the living together of young men at college -is fully realized in America. During the last few years this matter has be* n strongly im pressed upon me, says Samuel H. Iianck, in the Reformed Church Re view. As editor of a college obituary record I have carefully studied the lives of a good many hundreds of college men, successes ami failures alike; for the men were taken as they died and the sources of in 'ovulation in almost every instance were the people wJ)o actually knew them. The men who succeeded, who were able to accomplish things and live reasonably happy lives, were often men of the most ordinary abili ty, but they knew how to deal with Iheir fellows. The men who failed were of two kinds; those who had failed from a lack of self mastery ? from la/.iness or vice ? and those who failed through their inability to get along wjth their fellowmen. The latter were by far the more numerous and their eases were usually the most pathetic, for the hardship that ensued to themselves and families was the greatest; and, moreover, one could not help but feel that somehow tliey did not de serve it. To me the most striking thing in the study of the lives of these col lege men is the fact that few of the latter type of failures were mem bers of the college fraternities or similar social organizations while lu college. The fraternity men who failed, failed because they could not master themselves. There can be no doubt that these social organizations in our American colleges, especially where there are no dormitories, de velop in young men a marked ability to associate successfully with their fellows ? one of the first requisites for telling work in any department of life. It may be added that this conclusion has been reached without prejudice, tor I myself never be longed to a college fraternity. It Means the Same Thin?. "He's a fool!" "Oh, I wouldn't put it so brutally as that. There are better ways of ex pressing your opinion of hiim." "How, for instance?", "Well, you might say that he's the kind of man who's likely to have the simple inscription on his tombstone: 'He blew out the gas.' " ? Chicago . Post. ........ ' MAKING THEM WHOLE Poor People with Missing Members Supplied Free. ft*raa*e Reqarnt* Made of a Chart tabJe Ansoclatlon That Supplies Artificial Limbs, UJau Eyes, Etc. "I don't know whether I ought to buy this man a woollen leg or not." The secretary of the Association for the Improvement of the Condition of the Poor was pondering: "The last man 1 bought one for was so happy that he had to celebrate; and he cele brated so hard that he got into a row and the leg was smashed before morn ing. Seventy-five dollars gone to splin ters within 12 hours!" ? There was a shade of humor in the lady's meditations, even though the subject was not a merry one, says the Philadelphia Ledger. "Artificial limbs seem to have a bad moral influence some way," she said, with Mime sadness. "When 1 supply the missing portion of a man's anat omy he almost always has to go and celebrate. The last time 1 bought a man a glass eye he did the same thing. He was an educated man, had been a professional man in his day; and after he had been rejoicing over the new eye for a little while, his chivalrous in stincts prevailed, and he decided that he must come up and show me how nice it looked. He came ? " She paused and shook her head mourn fully. "He was very happy," she con cluded simply. The purchase of $75 or $100 arti ficial limbs seems a rather expensive outlay for a charitable association, but when a recipient cannot be self supporting without it, it is perhaps the wisest charity. A man's chances at money-earning are so painfully re duced by any deformity that perhaps he can be excused for celebrating when the deficiency is supplied. At least the association thinks so, and at one time or another it has furnished al most every member of the human form divine. The other day a one-legged man drifted in with a strange tale of woe. Twenty years ago he left the city for the west. After serving his time at knocking about, he had acquired a small farm in Montana. The farm was not particularly valuable, and when, about a year ago, he got a chance to sell it, he did so, and resolved to use his little capital by returning to the east and getting into some small busi ness. He had barely started, with his little stake in his pocket, when he was run over and smashed nejfcly to bits. Taken to a hospital in a Montana town, he was made a pay patient, it was minus one leg and most of his money, and when he emerged, eight months later, he adhered to his original plan and continued his journey, though for what reason he himself cannot tell. With no relatives, and his old acquaint ances scattered or forgotten, he turned tip alone and friendless at the society's doors and_ asketl for a wooden leg. He had a little motley left, but he did not dare use any of it, as he felt he must keep something to live on, and yet without the leg he could do nothing for a living. Then there was the man who haa his hair all burned off his head. His scalp healed, but his hair absolutely refused to send forth a single tendril. With a head bare and smooth as a bil liard ball, he found it impossible to get a job, employers either believing him too old or refusing to have him around, on account of his appearance. He grew so sensitive over the matter that he refused even to go to the asso ciation rooms, because ? he "would have to take off his hat to the ladies." But he sent his wife to state the facts in the vase and petition for a wig. The wig was bought, the man got a job, and, happily, refrained from "cele* brating." A young woman found herself in the same predicament. All her hair fell out in a severe attack of fever, and when, after a long time, it began to come in it stood out perfectly straight and stiff from her head. The store where she had been employed had re served her position for her, but her appearance attracted so much atten tion that after awhile they told her she would have to go. The association bought her a $15-wig, and it proved efficacious, for within six months she was married. One struggling widow who was keep ing together a family of, four or fiv children placed her false teeth in a glass of water one night before retir ing. The children had a little dog which, as ill-nourished as the rest o? the family, and having more appetite than sens^, found the teeth in the night and chewed thenx up. The secretary smiled, but she bought the widow a new set of teeth. "How could the woman eat if she had no teeth?" she inquired. "And how could she work if she could not eat? There are people marked down on charity books to-day as incorrigi bly lazy who got there through dys pepsia caused by bad teeth." An artificial %iose, for a man who , had been deprived of that useful mem ber through accident, and a $50 flexi ble hand, not to be detected in a glove, lor a girl, were among other odds and ends supplied. "What?" said the secretary. "No, I we haven't supplied any artificial | brains yet, but I can tell you, we could j do a good business if we did, and it I wouldn't all be among charity pa- j tients." Her Point of View. Madge ? Don't you think a girl should marry an economical man? Dolly ? I suppose so; but it's just awful being engaged to one. ? N. Y. Times. "book agent got even. Thrtatrnrd rrith Vlolrtcc bjr lh? Huahaad, He Retaliates by Sell ing Book to thr Wit*. "There are slews and slathers of schemes for getting revenge," said a Washington business man who has half a dozen "No Agents or Peddlers" signs tacked; up around his office, re lates the Star, "but the way a fel low took to get even with me yester day for a bit of warm talk that I was obliged to hand out to him beats anything that has come my way down to date. "The chap was a book agent who came into my office the other morn ing not much later than 15 minutes after I had reached my desk. I was busy with my morning's mail, and when he unhitched the leather cov ering around his stack of sample copies of 'Photogravures of the Old Masters,' I simply nodded in the di rection of one of those 'No Agents or Peddlers' signs and supposed that he would take the tiint and mosey out. But he didn't mosey. He was a tall, heavy-set, healthy-looking in dividual who appeared as if he might be able to take care of himself pretty well in a scrap, and no doubt he had fallen into the habit of presuming upon his appearance of physical abil ity. Miyhow he began to spread the book out and to show me the pic tures. "'Now, I haven't any time to fool away with such truck as that,' I said to him in a pretty testy way, when I saw that he was bound to show me his 'Photogravures of the Old Mas ters,"! never bpught a book in my life from a book agent, and I never am going to buy one from a book agent, and if you've got any regard for your tonsils and understand the meaningof the conservation of energy you'll traipse right out that door on your left and let me alone.' "Well, the fellow seemed to regard my conversation as just so much mere airy persiflage. " 'But I know,' he put in, 'that if you take but one glance at this mag nificent collection of perfect repro ductions of the old masters, you will change ? ' " '1 will do nothing of the sort.' I broke in, 'and I'm not going to take one-eighth of one glance at the col lection, either. I'm a patient man, but I want you to go out of here, and quick. The gall of you people, anyhow, prowling into a man's oflice when he hasn't any more than got down to his business a little after 9 o'clock in the morning, and springing such rot as a collection of old mas ters on him ? on your way!' "Well, that fellow smiled right in my teeth in a way that clearly showed that he considered that I was delivering myself of the usual ban dinage under the circumstances, and then he procee-ded: " 'But, sir, I hate to deprive you of the opportunity to look over .this superb volume before you have given yourself the chance to reflect upon the extraordinary offer which I am making. I am the only representa tive of the firm publishing this work to cover the District <Sf Columbia ter ritory, and I shall perhaps not re main here for more than a we?l; or so ? I shall certainly not get down this way again. As you will see this volume embodies the most famous works of the most eminent of the old masters, and it comprises nearly 300 photogravures, with more than 600 pages of explanatory matter, most of it written by the most nota ble art critics of Europe, and?' "'Oh, Mike? and Pat!' I yelled, rushing to the office dor as if to sum mon a couple of porters of the pro portions of piano movers ?I only em ploy one porter, and he's rather an anaemic-looking colored man ? and i then the book agent tilted his hat to me with a flourish and disappeared through the other door. "My wife greeted me at the door when I came home that evening with an unusually gracious manner that I can usually detect the meaning of ? it generally means that she's m:'de a purchase that's not down on the lit tle schedule. " 'Well, what is it you've blown yourself to this time?' I said to her. 'You might as well tell me now. and show it to me after dinner.' "'Oh, but I know you won't be cross about this,' said my wife, in a tone of unusual confidence under the circumstances. 'It's that beautiful book that you sent that young -nan up to show me? I never knew beiore, by the way. that you were partial to reproductions of the old masters. But it is such a handsome volume, and it really seems cheap at $15, don't you think?' "Then she racejl into the library and brought forth the book to show me. I was too stupefied to say any thing for five minutes, but then I gradually became able to get# to the bottom of the scheme. There wasn't] much to it. The husky book agent i whom I had turned down had simply j picked up one of my business envel opes on his way out. Then he had looked up my house number in the directory, raced up to the house, showed my wife the envelope and told her that he had seen me and I that I was vastly interested in the book, but that if my wife wished to purchase it to tell her that it would be all right ? and she had bought it, delighted at 'my growing artistic taste,' as she put it.. He more than squared it up with me for the in stallment of inflated conversation, which I bestowed upon him? but wait till the next book agent drops in t here, that's all." Wihn Could Blame It?
