Whun Mia Chance Cam*
Give butfal'b, O Lord." he prayed,
"And I will crave do more:
I'll face all dangers unafraid,
As martyrs did of yore.
No earthly glories. Lord, forme.
But grace to strive away
Serenely rendering to Thee
Some service day by day.
"O foolish man to strive and scheme
For fleeting rlcbei here;
What Is there In gold's yellow gleam
That fools should hold it dear?
The earthly honors gained by men
Last but a fleeting day—
Ah, let me waste no moments, then,
In seeking tbem, I pray."
He woke ODe mornleff to behold
A chance for woriaiy gain;
Tbe way to «plendor%nd to goll
Lay straight and smooth and plait.
The glories heaven hides from Tlew
To others he resigned.
And men could hardly see him through
The dust be left behind.
Llv* In th* Rraaant
A ''live" man respects the twentieth
century. He does not think that wis
dom died out when its nineteen prede-;
cessors departed. His eyes are not in
the back of his head. He reads books,
but he studies men. Great poets bare,
for tbe most part, passed their live«io
cities. "Never write a page," aaid the
late Lord Lytton to a young Lone' •
author, "till you have walked (r-••,.
your room to Temple Bar, mingling
with men and reading the human face.'"
The men who make their mark on
the age are those who know it, and
sympathize with its life. A professor in
a theological seminary confessed that
for half a century he had read more
Latin than English. He failed to im
press his students, for he was obsolete,
even while facing them.
Gulzot says that Shakespeare's suc
cess is due to his masterly knowledge
of Ms own age and country, and to the
fact that he wrote in a spirit of loyalty
to them both.
Raphael went about Rosce And Flor
ence seeking faces and attitude*: worth
reproducing upon canvas. Curran
studied iaw during the day. At .night
he studied men in the cufltc houees of
London, selecting those which "vtere
most fertile in game for a character
Napoleon's boast was, "I know men."
He disguised himself that he might
talk with 6ailors and fishermen. When
he wished to study some great subject,
he would gather about him those who
were authorities on it, and set them ar
guing with each other. When be said,
"Good night, gentlemen!'' he knew all
about all the matter that was worth
Waller Scott would talk with anyone
who would talk to him. He visited the
fish market at Billingsgate, in order to
learn the dialect of the fishwomen. His
novels are read to-day because they are
true to life, though they are called ro
Students who confine themselves to
the past are as dead, so far as serving
their generation is concerned, as the
eras they love. They are almost sure
to mourn over the present and to dis
trust the future. The former days are
to them better than these, and the fu
ture is likely to be worse than either.
Professor Phelps, in his instructive
and interesting "Men and Books," tells
a suggestive anecdote about two clergy
men, which illustrates the difference in
character between tftCstudent of books
and the student of men. Thf two min
isters, who had been classmates in the
seminary, met after a separation of
twemy years. Each had had a fair
measure of success.
"I have had a hard life of it,but I en
joy a hard life," said, in a cheery tone,
he who bad lived among bis brethren.
''It pays to have a hard life. I have
such a glorious trust in tbe future!"
"I have had a hard life too," said
said the other, who had lived in the
dead past, speaking in a mournful tone.
•'I try to endure it patiently, but I shall
be glad when it is over. Tbe future
looks dark, very dark to me. My chief
satisfaction is in tbe past."
This man was foot sore from walking
backward. A few years later he was
gathered to his fathers, with whom
his mental life had been buried twenty
veara." His friend still lives, enjoying
his hard life, not growing old. but keep
ing his heart young that he may do
good work for the men with whom he
loves to associate.
The past has its uses, but is no place
for a man to live in. The apost.e of
Burmah, Adouiram Judson, was an old
man when he died, full of good works.
But his wife, "Fanny Forrester," thirty
years his junior, said, "He was tbe
Vomigest man I ever knew."' He kept
himseif young by his faith in God ami
his hope tor man —Ex,

The Origin of Volcanoes
According to an exchange the follow
ing is a negro preacher's account of the
origin of volcanoes:
"De earf. ray Men's," he said, "re
volves on axels, as we all know. Some
fin' is needed to keep de axels greased;
so de good Lawd, in His wisdom an' to'
sight, dut petrolyum in de bowels ub de
earf for dat purpose. De Stan'ard Oil
Comp.ny comes along an' strax dat pe
trolyum by borin' holes in de earf. De
earf sticks on its axels and won't go
round no more; dere is a hot box just as
ef de earf wuz a big railroad train—an'
den, my frien's, dere is trouble."

Jokes by freight
Lieutenant Randolph of the United
States navy was the center of attraction
one evening ait an entertainment given
by the British officers at Gibraltar.
His witty saying- and anecdotes kept the
guests in roar* of laughter. One of the
British officers met Randolph the fol
lowing morning and said:
Lieutenant Randolph, I've been think
ing over some of your jokes this morn
ing and by jove! Ihey are clever
deucedly clever.
And Randolph replied, Thanks; I'm ,
glad youv'e got them at last;by freight.
And the Englishmen walked away tap
ping his forehead and repeating
thoughtfully, by freight.

The White Mouse Stable
A bill ii before Congress authorizing
the expenditure of ninety thousand dol
lars in improving the stable attached to
the President's mansion. Congressman
Benton, of Missouri, thus attacked the
bill in a speech a few days ago:
"There are plenty of rich men in this
country who live in worse places than
ihe President's stables as they now are.
These old stables would be a palatial
abode to the average American.
"First they wanted $60,000 for the new
barn, but they've grown brave, in
spite of the prevailing economy and
now ask $90,000. This is a big sum
to spend on the President's 'tistuloed'
mountsfor which any stable it good
enough. And it is said, too, that the
President is the hardest man on a bone
who ever bestrode one. He wears 'em
out on the granitoid pavements of this
town untlPthe hoofs are ridden off. •I —.
would not hire one of my horses to him
at any price
'•You can publish It all over Missouri
that lam against those stables. I don't
know what the majority of the commit
tee is going to do about the matter, but
I'm In favor of cutting out $90,000
stable when not a Congressman here
can get money for public buildings in
any of the good towns of this country.
