MASTER OF HIS CRAFT.
Immigrant Station aralishes Pwe.
tleal sermon oe the Slbject
Among the immigrants awaiting ex
aminatlon at Ellis island recently was
a tall young fellow with a little black
bag under his arm. He was a Pole,
about 20 years old, and his admission
was a pleasing and dramatic incident,
witnessed by Arthur Henry. The les
son it teaches is as good for native
Americans as for immigrants, says
When the young man's turn came
to answer the inevitable question:
"How much money have you?" be
smiled and answered frankly:
"But don't you know you can't
come in here if you have no money
and no friend to speak for you?
Where are you going?"
"To Fall River, frst. I have a
friend there. Thqn I shall see the
whole country. I shall make money.
You will hear of me."
The inspector proceeded rather
sharply: "How will you get to Fall
River? Where will you eat and sleep
. "I shall be all right," replied the
young fellow, confidently. "With I

"What is it' l
The Pole laughed, and, opening the
bag, took out a cornet. It was a he 1
instrument, and gave evidence of lor
"Can you play it well?" asked the
official, mqre kindly. I
In answer, the young Pole stepped
out into the open space and, lifting
the horn to his lips, began the beau
tifulintermezzo from "Cavalleris Rus
ticaps." At the arst note everyone
in the great building stood still and
listened. The long lines of immi
grants became motionless. The for
lorn waiters in the pit looked up and
their faces became tender. Even the
meanest among them seemed to feel
the charms of the pleading notes.
When the music ceased there was a
brst of applause. Shouts of
"Bravo!" "Good boy!" "Give us some
morel" came from every side. The
physicians, who had a few moments as
before made their hurried and not
ever gentle eanmiation, joined Ina
the applause. The oflloer who had na
questioned hun so sharply slapped tn
him .o the back. The commissioner
himaself had eome ap from the efice it
at the sound of the horn, and asked e
for the partleular.
When he beard them he turned to He
the agent of the Fall River boats and r
aid: "Give.this fellow a passage, in
eluding meals and charge it to me." t
"I will charge it to myself," said e
the agent, and he took the young
Pole by the arm and led him away. d
The incident was a sermon on orm
petenee-a lesson on what it means e
to be a mater. The trade may be

does not matter. The man who has
conquered it, who knows it, root and
branch, can point to it as confident
ly as the young Pole pointed to his Ia
cornet, and say, as he did: "With
this I can go anywhere." of
