JAMES A. CARFIELD.
Tbo Noble History of a Noble Man, and His Advnnco to tlto First IMnco Among Ills Countrymen. sketch or rnr.sii)ENT oahheld's life. Tho rnco of Gnrflold traces its nnccs try back to that Massachusetts Puritan stock from which sprang so many of our greatest horocs and statesmen. Tho long roll of tho family contains tho names of men who perpetuated tho stern virtues of their fathers, and, through changes and migrations, transmitted them unwoakened to their later repre sentatives. Abrnm Garfield, tho father of tho President, died when his son, born November 19, 1831, was but eigh teen mortlis old. Tho widow, with four helpless children dependent upon her, neither yioldcd to dispalr nor ac cepted any assistance which might bo construed as a charily. Following her magnificent gospel of self-help, sho took upon herself their future. How faithfully and grandly sho fulfilled her trust is witnessed by tho touching and tender roTcrenco shown by tho son 'whom tho nation exalted to its placo of chiefest honor. Tho young James commenced his school llfo at tho ago of thrco yours, thus evincing n precocity and a tasto for study which was a prcsago of futuro greatness. For tho next twolvo years his life was that combination of study, reading and manual labor which, in our earlier history, was so frequently tho discipline which a poor but Intelligent and ambitious boy was obliged to pacs to a career of honor and renown. Yet with all his studious habits ho was a vigorous, independent youth; and his playmates soon learned that intorfor enco and injustico u cro things ho would not brook. Ho was simply a boy; healthy in body, mind nnd morals. When sixteen years old ho went to Clovclaud, bent on shipping as a hnnd beforo tho mast. Ho boarded it vessel, found somo drunken sailors, and a cap tain who looked a drunken beast; was shocked, and turned away and walked off partly disillusionized, not wholly. Ho happened to meet a cousin whom ho know merely by sight and who was run ning a canal-bout. Tho cousin asked him if ho did not want to drlvo horses for him. Tlio offer was accepted, for it flashed on young Garfield quickly that ho could mako tho canal work a pri mary school, tho lako tho academy, and tho ocean tho college So began Lis canal-boat experience which has been sufficiently and in somo cases extrava gantly exploited it comes along natur ally, without accident or any merely wild notion of advcr.turo, and James went through it rough and tumblo llko tho bravo and lusty youth ho was, for thrco months, when ho got paid $10 a r nth and board. It was ended by an attack of fovcr, through wnich ho was safclj carried by thpskillf ul and tendorcaro of his mothor. During his convalesccnco sho persuaded him to effort of nnothorkind. An educa tion fitting him for a teacher would open beforo him a prospect of equal independence and greater posjlbililics than tho forest or the canal. With $17 to meet expenses, young Garfiold and his two cousins entered tho academy at Chester. This marks tho real beginning of his busy honorablo and useful llfo. Hero ho met ft young girl, Lucretia Randolph, who in after years becamo his wifo. Hero ho caught a gllmpso of of tho lifo which might open beforo an oducatod man, and here woro awakened thoso aspirations which only strengthen ed with increasing years. At tho end of a year ha undertook his first oxporlonco in teaching. Insubord ination among his unruly backwoods pupils served morcly to display moro plainly his manly courago and his iron will. No Ono cared to dispute his au thority a second tinio, and whllo yet a boy took his first losson in tho responsi bilities of ruling. Attracted by tho sim- plo oarncstnoss of a preacher of tho "Dlsciplos," ho Was naturally drawn to their faith and tho Institution which they had founded at Hiram. Hero he did his tromondous work of preparation for college Ho began at Hiram in tho fall of 1851, with but twenty-four weeks of Latin and twolvo weeks of Greek. Ho taught for two winters in tho dis trict school. After tho first torm ho taught from tJiroo to six, and later tho f wholo sir classes, so that ho could only study nights and mornings. In Juno, 1854 less than throo years aftor ho wont to Hiram ho not only had fitted himself to ontor collego, but iiau completed two years of tho collego course, so as to bo admitted in tho ju nto, class.in Williams, In full and good standing. Ho ontercd collego In Juno, 1854, with about $350 which ho had saved in addition to paying his acado mio expenses. At Williams his lifo was a continuation of his oarlloroxporioncos. His predlW lion for study and reading missioned Lieutenant Colonel of tho Forty-socond Ohio Voluntcors. Ho do foated tho Hobol forces at Paintvlllo and Prestonburg, and drovo them from Ken tucky, receiving for tho sorvico a Brlgnv tiler's commission. Ho served at l'iko- ton, Slilloh, and Corinth, was a mom ber of tho Fitz John Portorcourtmartlal, and was mado chief of staff to General Itosccrans. Although prejudiced against Garfield, ho soon camo to ad mlro 1dm, and thoy were fast friends. It was to Garfield's foresight and ad vico that ho afterwards owed many of ills successes. Tho battle of Chlcamauga was Garfield's last military sorvico of moment. Ho wroto every order that day but ono that ono was tho fatal order to Gon. Wood, which displacing his brigade, enabled Hood to break through and turn tho Union Hank. After a week or two of furthor scrvlco ho was sent to Washington ns a bearer of dispatches. Ho thcro learned of his promotion to a major-generalship of volunteers "for gallant and meritorious sorvico at tho battlo of Chlcamauga.' December 6, 18G3, ho resigned Lis com mission to accept tho election to Con gress from tho Ashtabula district of Ohio, believing that ho' could bo of greater sorvico in tho Congressional halls than on tho battlefield. Garfield was nominated without his knowlcdgo or permission, nnd when ho accepted it ho did so with tho belief that tho war would eontinuo but a fow months. Ho was elected by a largo majority. Ho was stronQjionod.hishonJsty and man linoss goptd Hor,-fiMiends, and, in 1856, ho graduated yith high honors, possosslng at tho snmotlmo tho admir ation and confidonco of President Hop kins and tho entiro faculty. Ho return ed to Hiram as professor of Latin and Greek, and in 1858-, was' married ta however continued ids military servlc until tho day Congress mot. Ho hns often expressed regret that ho did not fight tho war to tho end. Among men of an earlier ago nnd who nro still artlvo in public llfo ho modest ly began in Congress tliocourso of study nnd cxperlcnco which was ultimately to enable him to eclipse them nil. His extraordinary versatility, activity and industry nro displayed through tho wholo of his lonjr ncriod of service In Congress. Even for a singlo sossion tho cntaloguo of his speeches nnd ro marks is moro voluminous than tho cat aloguo of a voluminous volume. With each succeeding year ho studied moro important subjects, aud his opinions grow of greater weight in tho opinions of both constituents nnd coilcntrucs, ."scarcely any subject which It befits tho statcsmnn to investlgntodld ho neg lect; nnd upon whatever ho brought to bear his trained nnd powerful intellect, ho shed a purer and elenrer light. In tho Fortieth Congress Gon. Garfiold was tho chairman of tho Committco on Mil itary Afl'rtirs. In tho Forty-first ho was given too chairmanship of banking an-' currency, which ho liked much better because it was in tho lino of his finan cial studies. His next promotion was to tho Chairmanship of tho Appropria tions Committee, which ho hold until tho Democrats camo into power in tho Houso in 1870. During tho troubled times following tho election of 1876, Garfield was tho leader of tho modornto element of tho Republican party. Ho oat on tho clec toral commission, and by his impartial course thcro and olsowhore, contributed largely to tho peaceful solution of tho difficulty. Civil sorvico reform lias al ways commanded his sympathy, and his woll-known utterances upon this subject endeared him to tho masses who desiro nn honest and efficient publio sorvico. As a lawyer, his career, though .briof, was brilliant; tho Milllgan case alono being suillcient to onsuro him an onvia bio notoriety. Of all tho subjects which ho touched but to adorn, tl at whicli lay nearest his heart was tho causo of education. A truo and noblo Amoricnn, ho realized that upon that nro built tho foundations of our stnto; and it was ovor first in his actions as in his thoughts. If ho consid- ed it too much in tho llghtof aunivorsal panacea, it wa3 a generous and pardon- ablo error. In nil tho world tho strug gling, aspiring, ignorant youth had no moro sympathetic, helpful friend than President Garfiold. In 1877, Garfiold succeeded Blaino nslcadcrof thollouso; and for two years, showed himself tho coolest nnd ablest tactician in cither party. Ho know how to bo a party man with out degenerating into a partisan. In 1879, ho was olocted to tho United States Sonato to succeed Mr. Thurmnn; but be foro tho arrival of tho dato -.for taking his scat, had beon nominated and clos ed Presidont. No ono who roraembers tho supremo confidonco reposed in his leadership in Congress, nnd tho storm of npplauso which spontaneously swav- od tho Chicago convention wlionovor, he addressed it, could doubt that ho wos tho groat popular hero, dear to tho vory' ncart or. uio people Howns nominated i-tLI 1 i k ii, 13 iruo, nominally as a compromiso candldato; but no ono of all tho list could have awakonod among uio masses uio enthusiastic affections which ralliod around his namo. As General Garfiold passod throu-rfj mo oast uoor at tuo timo of his Inaugu ration, ho looked upon tho most extra ordinary scono that evor met tho oyes' oi a rresuiont. in front was a solid mass of people, principally mon, covo! ing all tho spaco between tho Capitol stops and tho grand stairways. Stand ing through tho mass of people In black was a long lino of bright uniforms, and fringing tho edges woro pioturosouo uping3 ot colors in pluraos and Mags. Ids greatness. As ho glanced nt this littlo noblo woman, in tears from tho depth of her maternal pride, his oyo wandered from tho giddy throng nnd focused on tho dear old faro and his mind lapsed from tho business in hnnd to tho scenes of lowlier days. No soon or had tho oath of olllco been adminis tered than tho stalwart son turned and kissed ids mother nnd his wifo, whom ho worshiped with a tender devotion. His has been a noblo, solf-sustalncd, strangely consistent career. Hq has been held up as as tho typo of tho self mado American nobleman. That ho should havo passed through tho priva tions, sacrifices and strong endonvors of fifty years, realized ovory hopo of pro phetic affection, endeared himself to ovory patriot, and reached tho summit of glory only to l)nd awaiting him thcro tho assassin's bullet, Is tho vory irony of fate Tho Art of Ucnutr. Llpplncott'e Magntlnc, Ugliness, onco considered nfato which tho gods themselves woro powerless to nvert, has becomo of lato years a clr- cumstnnco of no particular account, slnco It is largely under tho control of dress, nnd by skilful modifications limy becomo moro effective than beauty its elf. Fashions wcro formerly created for pretty women but now seem to bo in tho interests of tho plain. A beauti ful woman is of courso a princess In her own right; sho is worshiped nnd ac cordingly restricted; possessing nil, and finding tho wholo world ready to pay tribute, sho loses in a degrcoher origin ality. Sho is so lavishly endowed by Naturo that sho does not require to search curiously for styles which shall enhanco tho sheen of her hair, tho glory of her oyes, tho pearl and roio of her complexion, or tho perfect lines of her form. With nu ugly woman, on the contrary, it is "nothing venturo, noth ing liavo." Sho is comparatively safe in pushing to extremes her craving for ndmlrntion. Ry sheer nudnclty of in spiration sho creates tho piquant, tho Ir regular; sho makes moro beauty seem tame Probably few ladies endowed with plunpness went to sco M'llo Bern hardt last winter without nt least a pass ing feeling of regret Hint their rounded persons mndo It impossiblo to, imitate somo of tho subtlo effects which mako that actress ono of tho most elegant women of our time For instnnce, her flowing whito dressing-gown in tho last act of "Camlllo" was a poem of a dress, but a fully-dovolopcd arm would havo spollon tho sleeves, which, being spirals of laco, woro enough of them selves to mako tho curves, and neoded littlo or nothing save a skeleton beneath Our pleasure in such mnrvols of dross is, of courso, a preservation of taste, slnco no sculptor would wish to model lleshlcss figure, however gracefully disproportionately long limbs may as sumo drapery.

Among tho humors of our vlllago In volving calculation, is ono touching tho ilvo lime-trees in our church-yard, which are planted nt slight irregular intorvals. I havo beon told that a quaint old man, whom I know well, standing with othor loungors near tho inn at the cornor of tho church-yard, one day started tho piestlons, which two of tho llvo trees were planted farthest apart from ono another? After much discussion and mcntnl calculation of dlstanco, result ing In various opinions, ho sravo his udgmont in favor of tho two end ones, a conclusion which summarily but sat- sfactorlly disposed of all tho guesses, moro or less accurato, which had beon mado as to tho distance betweon other pairs of trees in tho row. Our logic, lowoyor, is by no moans always so In dlspulablo as this. In a vlllago somo miles from ours, an outbreak of typhus fever, a few years ago, was at last charged upon a milk-seller whoso woll was discovered to bo vory foul, and was speedily closed. Tho good man lmli. ,nantly repudiated tlto imputation on his woll, and his defenso was to his mind ample. "Why," said ho, I've just had a letter from my slstorin Liverpool, and sho says thoy'vo had tho 'titus fovor' ulown there," and, ho added triumph' iHntly, "now I know thoy'vo had naun o do wr my woll down there, that's t Irtin." If nnybody would wish to trv t to powor of puro reason, lot him un - i i i i .ii. , . 1 yilltivU IU It is a wild and solitary placo to spend tho wintor, which Mnrsliall nnd his wifo with a young lady compnnlou did for tho (list timo last wintor, nnd in this connection ho told mo n boar story. Ho said that after visitors ceased coming to tho park last fall, ho went to Virginia City for his winter supplies, leaving his wife, children and tho young Indy In chnrgo of tiio placo. Near tho house in tho renr, was situated a dug-out oi root-house, whero ho stored his pota toes, etc., to keep thorn from freezing, nnd to ventlla.o which ho usod a joint of stovepipe Ono morning during his nbsoino, his wifo looked out of tho win dow and saw n boar pulling down tho plpo and trying to get into tho root- house, in which they had also stored most of their provisions. Tho women wcro nt their wlLs' end ns to what course to pursue They nt first threw tin cans from tho windows nnd man- nged to disturb bruin forn few moments, but ho soon returned, as ho had already sniffed the good things ot that ground cellar, and ho did not proposo to bo soared oil' with tin cans. Mrs. Marshall. being bravo enough to bo left nlonc, did not intend to liavo all of her provisions taken beforo her eyes, nnd proposed to load tho rille, If her companion would fire nt tho bear, which being complied witli, a good chnrgo was soon placed In tho gun, which wns laid across tho whi tlow mIII nnd discharged atliisbearshlp; but the aim not being accurate, did not strike him In a vital part, although his actions showedthnt he wns hit. Here- tired to tho hillside, sat down upon his haunches, took a viow of the situation, nnd then disappeared in tho bushes, where ho remained. Tho women woro not satisfied and thoy went afte.- that bear a very imprudent thing, to say tho Icnst; but. nevertheless, they went, for (as thoy expressed it) they were afraid ho might como back ngnln in tho night, nnd as thoy wcro satisfied lie was wounded, they wanted to finish him. Loading tho rillo again tl y went cau tiously up tho hlllsi'lo until they discov ered tho bear standing in a clearing, when tho women prepared for action by layii'g tho gun across a log and tak ing deliberate aim, hitting tho nnimal behind the fore-shoulder, when ho camo rolling down tho hill. Tho women did not stop to sco whether tho bo.ir wn rolling or running thoy imagined tho latter and bath ran for dear life, drop ping tho gun as thoy went for the house, which they reached before casting a glanco in the rear. When safe in tho liouso they took a vlow of the situation, and could see bruin doubled up nnd giving his last kick. Ho finally became quiet and thoy ventured out nnd got possession of their gun, which was londcd, and a third chargo put into tho I bear to mako sure ho was not playing possum. When Marshall camo homo ho weighed tho bear, and found ho brought down tho beam to 350 pounds. Ho tells tho story of t..o bravo women with n groat deal of pride, and tho young woman who did tho shooting Lns becomo quite a heroine "Out ni'lVnrlr. ami sick with nt) kidneys for yearn," wrote Mr, Alexander Kcrrlt. of ifhennnim Fnrkn.
