Went Point, has In the past ten years I teen, so frequently followed by puulHhiiietit nnd otherwlxe tllwouu tenauced that it has practically lecome a thing of the paid. A third of a cen tury ago the modes of hating were varied and tunny of them unbtue. A certain graduate who balled from south of Mason and Dixon's Hue and from west of the Allegheny moun tains told thla story of but own expe rience: lie was a tail, rawboned fellow when ho entered the academy as a "ptebe" aud had been assigned to a room with a bright little chap, with whom he aoon became very friendly, and confidential. Several weeka after be bad entered the academy be receiv ed a letter from bla good mot tier. In which she had Inclosed a clipping from their county newspaper. Tho article mentioned the fact that young Mr. had received an ap pointment to West Point and had left for that place several days liefore; that, whereas they extended congratulations to the young msn. the Culled States government was to be much more greatly congratulated Umn obtaining as one of Ita embryo soldlcr a man from their community, the son of such a noble sire, whose sire nnd groat-slrv bad beeu equally noble, a ytiug matt above reproach, of great Intellect and bound to make bis tnsrk In nny call ing be might elect, etc. This article Inspired Its recipient with pride and pleasure. He found It Impossible to refrain from showing It to bis roommate and an hour after having done so was accosted while going downstairs by an upper clans man who had been drilling blm and had liecn very severe. At this meeting the upper class man. who was atiout half his size, looked at him solemnly, removed bis cap ami said: "Mr. . I humbly ln-g your pardon for having been so stern with you. I did not know until a few moments ago what a distinguished aud Intellectual young man you were. You honor us by Im eomlng one of us." The plcaod "plolic." never for a moment scenting mischief, grinnltigly replied: "That's all right. Mr. . I forgive yon." That evening while the "plelc him! hia roommate were outfaced lu ntuily there was n knock nt their door, snd there entered the itpMT class man who had nccoKted and n xlelz-l to the "plelie" on tlie stair, be lielng necoiu pnulcd by n dozen other tipH-r clas men. He thus n1drviicd the "plelie:" "Mr. , hire are a numler of your brother cadet who are detlrous of knowing w lint a particularly distin guished man they have stiHUig tlieui. Yon will therefore kindly rend what your ncwspaix-r says of you." The "plelie" was Inclined to demur, but tlie determined manner ami steely eye of the little upnr elasa man com pelled nUiHetiee. HmtiniT.iNKed. be stutubllngly resd the whole article, at the conclusion of which the little tipier class msn tnfed that tlie render had mumbled In parts, bnd failed to enun elate distinctly nnd required tlie poor "plelie" to read it skuIii. Thla having ticeti done, all shook hnniN with blm In nn apparently most deferential man ner. after ivhlch the little upiier class man statiil that they would call the next evening auKincnlcd by other ca det and that lu lite meantime the "plelie" would commit the article to memory and in' In readiness to repeat It when they rallied. Ills manner brooked no disobedience. The call (wiw made the next evening, the iiuiiiIht of cartel lielng nearly double that -f the previous evening, and he repeated the article, lielng prompted bv Mio little upper rlas man. Itofure the departure of hi vis itor be was Informed that he would lie visited the next evening-by a still grenter iiumN r of endot. ami be wn ordered to ! prepared lo declaim the article depicting his virtue. The vMt was made nnd the declama tion rendered. He was then Informed thnt he would bo nptln visited the fo. lowing evening and would prepare himself so as to lie nble to render the article In song. This visit was made, the room lielng fairly packed with en. dets. and the poor "ploho" was re quired to stand on n table ami howl the article from start in finish, for he bad not the faintest understanding of bow to alug or turn a tune. In after years he said that If he had ever had any egotism In bla composition It was completely knocked out of blm by hav ing to handle that article as be had to handle It. -J. W.
