[ A Judge of Men.
"When first nominated for tin
presidency, Mr. Cleveland had litth
personal knowledge of public mei
[ outside i?t' his own State. Ilow rapid
ly lie aci|uired the inl'onnation nee

nl' the government was indeed a mar
vcl. It was in* 'Cleveland luck' o
haphazard chance that called int?
his first cabinet such men as Bayard
Manning, (iarland, Vilas, Lamon
and Whitney. It can safely he as
sertcd that Mr. Cleveland was an ex
eellent judge of men and of their ea
pacity for the particular work assign
cd them. As if by intuition he tlior
oughly understood after a single in
Icrview the men with whom In- wa:
brought in contact.

tut ion was in very truth 'the man of
t his counsel,' and in my opinion, no
- statesman in anient or modern times
- so challenged his profound admira
tion as did James Madison.
''Mr. Cleveland was sociable in the
- bes| sense of that word, and the cares
- ol Slate laid aside, in the company of
s friends, he was the exceedingly agreeable
companion. While by no means
- lite best of story-tellers himself, he
*' had a keen appreciation of the hu- ;
[! morons and ludicrous phases and inci..
dents of life. 1 will not soon forgot
f an evening I spent with him in comf
pany wilh Governor James I'roe lor
i Knoll, of Kentucky. The greatest
1 slory-leller of the age was at hi.?
2 hc.-l. and the delight of the oocas
ion was, as Cleveland declared, "be
- voiul expression."
"More than once I have been a
i guest in his home. During the cam- I
i paign of 1S02, when his associate up-I
