MESSAGE TO GARCIA."
Over a Million Copies of Hub
bard's Essay Circulated.
DEMA5D I0E 250,000 MOEE MADE.
tieors H. Dawlela Larsrely Responsi
ble Fr tbe Remarkable Dernsad
For tbe Article Xerly 1 ,000,000
Copies Have Been Circulated by
III ni Alone Text of "Message."'
With the beginning of tbe new year
more than 150,000 copies of Elbert
Hubbard's pamphlet A Message to j
Garcia" will bare been issued. It is
estimated that 7.500,000 copies of tbe
essay have been reprinted in various
forms. This, taking into consideration
tbe fbort time that lms elapsed since
the little book was printed tirst, is un
doubtedly the most remarkable record
that has ever been made by any pub
lication. Elbert Hubbard, who wrote
"A Message to Garcia," wrote It
without any idea of tbe possibilities
for wide circulation of tbe sermon it
contained. He is tbe editor of The
Philistine Magazine, a small "period
teal of protest." published at East Au
rora, Erie county. N. 1. He conducts a
printing shop and a fine bookbindery in
the name of tbe Society of tbe Philis
tines, of which he is himself tbe prin
clpal and pervading member. He wrote
"A Message to Garcia" for last
March's number of The Philistine.
His attention had been attracted to
tbe act of Lieutenant Andrew S.
Rowan In delivering a message from
the president to General Garcia early
in the (Spanish war and thereby keep
ing some 20.000 Spanish troops out of
Santiago until the United States army
and navy had taken the city. He made
the incident tbe text of a homily on
prompt aud intelligent service of em
The great Interest taken in the "mes
sage" and the wonderful demand for
it are due largely to the work of George
II. Daniels, tbe general passenger
agent of the New York Central and
Hudson River railroad. As be was
sitting In bis oHice at tbe Grand Cen
tral station one day looking over Tbe
Philistine his eye caught "A Mes
sage to Garcia." and it struck him that
the sermon contained there applied
with particular force to railroad em
ployees, says the New York Sun. He
made arrangements with Mr. Hub
bard to print off some copies. Four
thousand were printed. Then Mr. Dan
iels obtained leave for himself from
Mr. Hubbard to print "A Message to
Garcia." This was done, and 500,000
copies were issued in editlous of 100,-
OOO each. Hut it has become manifest
to bim that 100.000 editions are too
Blow, and there is now in preparation
an edition of &00.0O0. More than 1,000,-
000 copies of the essay have been cir
culated, as tbe demand for it has come
from many sources. Iiesides the 1.000,-
000 copies printed by Mr. Daniels. Hub
bard has printed 2."jO,000 at tbe Roy-
croft shop to till orders that have come
there for the book in numbers from
1 to 1.000. The following Is "A Mes
sage to Garcia:"
In all this Cubau business there is
one man stands out on the horizon of
my memory like Mars at perihelion.
When war broke out between Spain
aud the United States, it was very
necessary to communicate quickly
with the leader of the Insurgents.
Garcia was somewhere in the moun
tain fastnesses of Cuba no one knew
where. No mall or telegraph mes
sage could reach him. The president
must secure his co-operation, and
What to do!
Some one said to the president.
There's a fellow by the name of
Rowan will find Garcia for you, if any
Howan was sent for and given a
letter to be delivered to Garcia. How
"the fellow by the name of Rowan"
took the letter, sealed it up in an oil
skin pouch, strapped it over his heart.
in four days landed by night off the
coast of Culra from an open boat dis
appeared Into the jungle and in three
weeks came out on the other side of
the island, having traversed a hostile
country on foot and delivered bis let
ter to Garcia, are things I have no
special desire now to tell in detail.
Tbe point I wish to make is this: Mc-
Kinley gave Rowan a letter to be deliv
ered to Garcia, llowan took the letter
nnd did not ask, "Where is he at?" By
the Eternal, there is a man whose form
should be cast in deathless bronze and
the statue placed In every college of
he land! It is not book learning young
men need nor instruction auout tnis
and that, but a stiffening of the verte- (
brie which will cause them to le loyal
to a trust, to act promptly, concentrate
tfcelr energies, do the thing "carry a
message to Garcia!"
General Garcia is dead now, but
there are other Garcias.
No man who has endeavored to carry
out an enterprise where many hands
were needed but has been well nigh ap
palled at times by the Imbecility of the
average man the Inability or unwill
ingness to concentrate on a thing and
do it. Slipshod assistance, foolish Inat
tention, dowdy indifference and half
hearted work seem the rule.and no man
uccecds unless by book or crook or
threat he forces or bribes other men to
ssist him. or mayhap God. in his good-
LS3, performs a miracle and sends bim
n angel of light for an assistant. You.
ender. put this matter to a test: Y'ou
re sitting now In your office; six
clerks are within call. Summon any
one and make this request. "Please
look In the encyclopedia and make a
brief memorandum for me concerning
the life of Correggio."
Will the clerk quietly say. "Yes, sir."
and go to the task?
On your life, be will not. He will
look at you out of a fishy eye and ask
rice or more of tbe following questions:
Who was he?
Where is tbe encyclopedia 7 J,
ua 1 Uiiru Aft iiiu, .
Don't you mean Bismarck?
What's the matter with Charlie do
Is be dead?
Is there any hnrry?
Shan't I bring you the book and let
you look it up yourself?
What do you want to know for?
And I will lay you 10 to 1 that after
yoft have answered tbe questions and
explained how to find tbe information
and why you want it the clerk will go
off and get one of the other clerks to
help him try to find Garcia and then
come back and tell you there Is no such
man. Of course I may lose my bet:
but, according to the law of average, 1
Now. if you are wise you will not
bother to explain to your "assistant
that Correggio is indexed under the
C's, not in the K's, but you will smile
sweetly and say, "Never mind," and go
look it up yourself.
And his Incapacity for independent
action, this moral stupidity, this in
firmity of the will, this unwillingness
to cheerfully catch bold and lift, are
tbe things that put pnre socialism so
far into tbe future. If men will not
act for themselves, what will they do
when the benefit of their effort is for
all? A first mate with knotted club
seems necessary, and the dread of get
ting "the bounce" Saturday night holds
many a worker to his place.
Advertise for a stenographer, and
nine out of ten who apply can neither
spell nor punctuate and do not think
it necessary to.
Can such a one write a letter to Gar
"You see that bookkeeper?" said the
foreman to me in a large factory.
"Yes; what about bim?"
"Well, he's a fine accountant, but if
I'd send bim up town on an errand
he might accomplish tbe errand all
right, and, on the other band, might
stop at four 6aloons on tbe way, and
when he got to Main street would for-
.get what he had been sent for."
Can such a man be intrusted to car
ry a message to Garcia?
We have recently been bearing much
maudlin sympathy expressed for the
"downtrodden denizen of the sweat
shop" and the "homeless wanderer
searching for honest employment,'
and with it all often go many bard
words for the men in power.
Nothing is said about the employer
who grows old before bis time in a
vain attempt to get frowsy ne'er do
wells to do intelligent work and bis
long, patient striving with "help" that
does nothing but loaf when bis back
Is turned. In every store and factory
there Is a constant weeding out proc
ess goiug on. The employer is con
stantly sending away "help" that has
shown their Incapacity to further tb,e
Interests of the business, and others
are being taken on. No matter - bow
good times are, this sorting continues.
only If times are bard and work is
scarce the sorting is done finer, but
out and forever out the Incompetent
and unworthy go. It is the survival
of the fittest. Self interest prompts
every employer to keep the best those
who can carry a message to Garcia.
I kuow one man of really brilliant
parts who has not the ability to man
age a business of his own, and yet
who Is absolutely worthless to any
one else, because he carries with him
constantly the insane suspicion that
bis employer is oppressing, or Intend
ing to oppress, bim. He cannot give
orders, and be will not receive them.
Should a message be given to bim to
take to Garcia, his answer would prob
ably be. "Take it yourself."
Tonight this man walks the streets
looking for work, the wind whistling
through his threadbare coat. No one
who knows bim dare employ him. for
he is a regular firebrand of discontent.
He Is impervious to reason, and the
only thing that can Impress bim is the
toe of a thick soled Xo. 9 boot. Of
course I know that one so morally de
formed Is no less to be pitied than a
physical cripple, but In our pitying let
us drop a tear, too, for tbe men who
are striving to carry on a great enter
prise, whose working hours are not
limited by the whistle and whose hair
is fast turning white through the strug
gle to hold in line dowdy indifference.
slipshod imbecility and the heartless
Ingratitude which but for their enter
prise would be hungry and homeless.
Have I put the matter too strongly?
Possibly I have, but when all the world
has gone a-slumming I wish to speak
word of sympathy for the man who
succeeds tbe man who against great
odds has directed the efforts of others
and.' having succeeded, finds there's
nothing in it nothing but bare board
and clothes. I have carried a dinner
pail and worked for day's wages, and
I have also been an employer of labor.
and I know there is something to be
. said on both sides. There is no excel-
' lence per se in poverty; rags are no
recommendation, and all employers are
not rapacious and high banded any
more than all poor men are virtuous.
. My heart goes out to tbe man who
does bis work when the "boss" is
away as well as when be is at borne.
and the man who. when given a letter
for Garcia, quietly takes the missive
without asking any idiotic questions
and with no lurking intention of chuck
ing it Into the nearest sewer or of doing
aught else but deliver It. never gets
"laid off" nor has to go on a strike for
higher wages. Civilization Is one long,
anxious search for just such indi
viduals. Anything such a man asks
shall be granted. His kind is so rare
that no employer can afford to let him
go. He Is wanted In every city, town
and village. In every office, shop, store
and factory. The world cries out for
Fuch. He is needed, and needed badly

The annual report of Secretary Wil
son summarizes an immense amount
of valuable work done by tbe agricul

ticularly on tbe successful extension
of the weather bureau service around
the Caribbean sea, giving timely storm
warnings to tbe vessels of the navy
and merchant marine, says the Phila
delphia Public Ledger.
The division of entomology has done
valuable work this year In showing
fruit growers on the Pacific coast the

Tbe department has gathered much

ber annually, and it is thought that a
large proportion of this supply can be
raised in our new island possessions.
The same is true of Egyptian cotton,
of which we import $5,000,000 worth
annually, while he thinks that $200,
000,000 worth of tropical products
which we now import each year can
all be raised in Porto Rico, Hawaii and
Much work has been done in the
hybridizing of grains to secure varie
ties which will resist drought, rust
and cold. The same methods are be
ing used to produce hardy orange trees
and sea Island cotton, which will be
immune to the fungus disease now
attacking that staple.
Practical forestry work Is being done
on a large scale among the lumbermeu
of several states.
Irrigation work In tbe west has been
carried on. and much alkali land has
been reclaimed. The secretary's recom
mendations in this line include irriga
tion experiments in the east nnd south
outside of the arid region. He thinks
that congressional action also may be
necessary in the west on this subject
of water rights and reservoir rights.
The experiment station work of the
department has been extended to Alas
ka and should be extended to Hawaii,
Porto Rico and the Philippines, so that
they may "be enabled to supply the
United States with the tropical prod
ucts of which our importations are
now $200,000,000 annually.
Extensive experiments are being car
ried on in road construction, in co
operation with the local authorities of
the several states, iucluding the build
ing of sample roads from the mate
rials found in different localities and
the laying of steel track wagou roads.
The third year of experimentation
with hog cholera shows that from 75
to 80 per cent of the hogs injected
with serum are saved.
The secretary strongly recommends a
more rigid inspection of our export
dairy products to counteract the Injury

Regarding seed distribution, the sec
retary says that there Is no need for
the department to come Into competi
tion with the sales of seedsmen, but
that there is room for valuable work
in the collection and distribution of
such foreign seeds nnd plants as are
adapted to the United States, but

Tea growing experiments In South
Carolina are commended, and he notes
that 3,000 pounds of good tea were
raised in the gardens at Summerville
in tbe last season.
Turkestan alfalfa, Introduced by the
department, has been found a valuable
forage plant iu the northwest for re
sisting both cold and drought. Its intro
duction, it is said, probably will add
millions of dollars to the annual hay
product of the -country.
A valuable quality of rice has been
introduced from Japan. It is superior
to the domestic product, and should it
succeed In Louisiana hundreds of thou
sands of dollars will be added yearly
to the rice growing Industry. The sec

technical and scientific investigation of
native drug plants in co-operation with
the Pan-American congress.

Pride of tbe Poor.
Mrs. Clarence Burns, who is so well
known for her philanthropic work.
says that in all her experience in visit
ing the- tenements of the poor of the
city she has never been asked for alms,
Mrs. Burns has made a business of vis
iting the poor with the hope of helping
them whenever she saw the need, but
finds it almost Impossible to make the
really deserving poor acknowledge that
they are in need of anything.
One day she vifited a family who
were all huddled together in one bare,
cold room, ana their races were so
pinched she knew they were starving.
But in response to her offer to help
them the mother said:
"No, thank you. The children have
