'Noted Player Also Has Decided
Inclination to Painting.
Ol* Morningstar Has Never Used Hla
Artistic Ability as a Source of
Revenue—Has Originality in
j~ His Methods.
Ora Morningstar, until recently
widely known as one of the foremost
billiard players of the world, was un­
certain for many years as to the pro­
fession he would choose. It was a
tdSB-up between billiards and painting,
and his 'inclination was decidedly to­
wards the artistic career. The result
bafe te^n somewhat of a compromise,
for while Morningstar is famous as a
billiard player he is also closely
wedded to painting. About a year ago
Morninrgstar -was compelled to seek a
more'congenial climate for his wife,
who was in very poor health and lo­
cated In Arizona. This wonderful cue
artist itf never happier than when at
his easel. His real genius lies in the
creation of landscapes in oil, and some
of bis best works have received much
favorable'comment at art exhibitions.
Morningstar has never nsed his artiS'
tic'ability as a source of revenue. He
paints for the love of the work,
his pictures adorn the walls of the
bofiSSi"of many of his friends to whom
he bap "presented them. He may be
said to belong to the modern school

Merlin, .March 27.—It is doubtful
whether any popular national hero in
Germany is in general as little known
either in Cermanv or abroad, as (Jen
oral Field .Marshal August von Mac­
kensen, tie who was instrumental in
driving the Rusians out of (liilii-iti
and to whose credit the conquest of
Serbia lies.
lfindenburg, when the war began,
was an unknown, hut the public
quickly familiarized itself with every
detail of his life when liis vietoiies of
Tennenburg and the Masurian Lakes
made him an idol of all Germany.
Mackensein, however, Ilindeiiburg
rival for public affection at present,
was only a name unt'il the summer of
ltU.'i. and, despite his great reputation,
is little more now.
Countless streets all over Germany
have been named after Hindenburg:
statues already have been erected to
him lie is weekly in receipt, of re­
quests to allow I lie use of his name in
this or that connection. Mackensen,
however, though certainly a rival of
Hindenburg insofar as military
achievements are concerned, is still
far behind him when it comes to pop­
ular esteem or idolatry.
Mackensen's pictures, however, are
to be seen everywhere. They perhaps
are responsible for an impression that
seems to be almost universal that the
field marshal is stern and unapproach­
able, whereas the opposite is l.he case.
Scarcely any of his innate persona)
characteristics e.xcopl that of unusual
abiliiy seem to be depicted on his
strenuous features.
Cordial Delineations.
When Mackensen began to tower
above the other German army leaders,
by his achievements against the Rus­
sians, and the Kaiser in frequent tel­
egraphic messages conferred honor
after honor on him, it was a matter
of surprise to Germans unfamiliar
with Mackensen's career that a warm
personal note should manifest itself
which had been lacking in earlier
messages to Hindenburg.
The surprise came largely from the
tact that the general ptjblic did not.
and to a great, extent still does not,
know how long-standing and cordial
are the relations between the lOniper
or and Mackensein. The latter, sur­
rendering the command of his Hody
(iuard Hussars years ago, served for a
long period as the Kaiser's personal
adjutant, and in this position accomp­
anied his chief on the noted trip to
the Holy Land.
Few know, either, how narrowly
Germany missed having Mackensen
as a great military leader, lie is the
Min of a man who in America would
be rated as a gentleman farmer, and
himself was trained to take his fath­
er's place. Though he emerged from
the Francp-Prussian war as a reserve
lieutenant, he immediately went back
to civil life, in deference to his par­
ents' wishes.
Ideal and Reality.
For years lie resisted the impulse
to go back into the army, and fought
with himself a battle which his mosl
enthusiastic biographer describes as
conflict between ideal and reality. His
university education, belated because
of the war witn France, was almost
concluded, and he was fast becoming
in theory at least a farmer when tho
opportunity to go back as a line oili
eer into the "Death's Head Hussar"
regiment with which he had served in
France arrived once more, and his
father reluctantly withdrew his ob­
jections to this career.
A number of characteristics posses­

if: I'V
imuut'' ,i .'
The Wftfamt-Pkneled
sed by Mackensen stand out promi­
nently, and have stood out ever since
he joined the Second Hody Guard
Hussars on May l.'J, 1S73. Some of
them obviously have contributed to
his military success ohtres belong to
those peculiarities which successful
men in general have.
In the former category comes, first,
of all. an astonishing memory which
enables him often times to direct op­
erations without the aid of a map,
provided a course that lie has at some
earlier time studied the territory in
question, incidentally it might be re­
marked that lie generally lias done
the studying, for he is a prodigious
worker at all times.
Memory For Faces.
Mackensen rarely forgets a name or
a face, and years after meeting junior
oflicers astonishes them by calling
them by name when meeting them
again. Few know- it, but Mackensen
rivals Hindenburg in his intimate
knowledge of his native land, and has
traveled and studied so extensively
that he instantly recognizes any given
place from its physical characteris­
tics. -44
Contrary to genera! belief, Macken­
sen is the best sort of a comrade, and
lacks the repelling sternness with
which lesser men barricade them
silves. Off and on since ISTti he has
been connected with the Death's Head
Hussars, and today is their general a
la suite. No officer lias ever been
more popular, and few more approach­
able. There are countless cases on
record of financial and other aid that
lie had rendered, though not a man of
wealth, to alien of his company, bri­
gade or regiment.
Mackensen's early (raining on a
farm or country estate instilled in
him a love of the open and for hunt­
ing that have always stayed by him.
Though almost t7 years old lie has
never been ill a day and is so strenu­
ous a worker that his younger oflicers
often have hard work in keeping up
lo the pace that he sets.
His principal aversion is Hie shirk­
er, including the man who, though
not actually dodging work, likes to
take things easy and perhaps over­
indulge in the creature comforts of
life. The officer on his staff who is
too prone to laze over his after-dinner
cigar or liquor has not an easy time
of it.
Mackensen himself does not smoke,
because, according to report, of an oc­
currence in the Franco-i russian war.
He was at the time a non-commission
ed officer in one ofthe famous Tilack
Hussar regiments, and was entrusted
with important communications that

Another anecdote of MackonsonV.
early career is equally characteiistic
of the determination and the chivalry
which his intimates know so well.
He was a student at 'he Fniversity of
Halle, and the leader of his "set." lie
and his fellow students came to know
a talented young actress and her
mother, and learned from the latter
that the daughter was severely handi­
capped by the chicanery of the theater
manager, who not only repressed her
every effort to advance but insulted
and bothered her as well.
Is a Diplomat.
Tnstead of making the matter a per­
sonal issue between himself and the
manager, as most other hot-blooded
young students might have done, Mac­
kensen was far more diplomatic. He
assembled the entire stydent body
which, flower-laden, went to the
theater and overwhelmed the actyess
with applause and bouquets. There
ensued so much favorable publicity
that the manager had to recede from
his position and give the actress the
opportunity she had sought.
Hardly an ex-comrade of Macken­
sen but c?n testifv to some personal
act of kindness, some help in an emer­
gency that the latter has rendered. It
is ]IPSP seldom-told (stories of officers
which the public liQrdlv ever hears
lhat most of all dispel the impression
that the field marshal! is stern and
forbidding and unanproachable.
Mackensen's most prominent trait',
perhaps, has boon his unusuailv
strong filial devotion and loyalty. It
has been his custom for years to write

The secretary declined to talk about

Both the state and army depart­
