John Kelly.
fjoe Howard in Honton Herald. 1
Many of my readers have seen ami heard
of .I.ilin IColly, in his charitable lectures, hnl
thou ;:uii!s know nothing of him beyond the
p in i al idea that he is a rough, brutnl, foi-cn
Iiishinan, who dominates the chief fac
lion of thu Democratic party tn flti city.
X w, as it mutter of tact. John Kelly isn't
e. i u wmi 'in. Ho is neither brutal nor comse,
'.ot. on the contrary, is c.bout as mild man
i "y -il and w.-ll Udiaveii ail American lairn
citizen as walks the streets of his native
t, ami, Now York. 1 have known John Kelly
a :r:-rat unity years, and have frequently
been brought in violent contact w ith him,
but 1 havo never known him to do a rude, an
unmanly, an imcourteoits t, and he is one
of the few men in this country who have
achieved what the psalmist regards as a pe
culiar tiling m lite, having conquered his
own tongue, which, according to the in
Sipiml writer, is l etter than having captured
a city.
Mr. Kelly w as on the other side of tho
street, bow ling along at the;: rate of seven
miles an hour, when I pointed him out to
the boys. Every one said, in different lan
guae, "Do you know him, and why can't wo
speak to him." I instantly crossed Broad
way, and was greotedj with characteristic
cordiality, as were my young friends, each
of w lioui 1 introduced by name to the grand
sachem of Tammany hall. As we conversed,
the others looked on with unfeigned interest.
Mr. Kelly is nearly nix feet tall, and very
heavy built. He probably weighs, consider
ably over iHH) poiimis, and possibly S!61. He
hni; a square built head, covered with thick,
short cut hair. Uo wears his beard, which is
inclined to earrotnew, very close cliupoi.
His pictures in Harper's Weekly and l'uck
look no moro like him than they look like the
Auel (rabriel or Petrarch, tho historian.
He has a Milesian tyjie of countenance, and
o iks like a Norwegian or a Scandinavian.
His face is square, his eyes b!u,), his nose
s' niiiit, his mi'Uth well formed, his jaws
heavy, and hw chin pronouncedly heavy.
His voice is low and mehHlious, his language
is always well chosen. He produce the ini
pre:isii,n well, it you don't know bmi you
wo'.ibl think he wa-s i-imply a strnightfor
ward, intelligent, honest-meaning tanner,
contractor or man of affairs, but not in any
sens. a metropolitan manipulator.
A .oot Sermon Knt the Text!
Not long ago we heard a clergyman relate
this story, i tie ueivasct had tieenayoung
man and a wild one at that. He died as the
result of a spree. Ktill he had many redeem-
iug qualities. He was a noble-souled, liig-
heai'tsl fellow, who would do anything for a
irieud, and who was generally popular de
spite his failings. Tho church was crowded
to hi a r w hat the clergyman would have to
say. his numerous friends even threatened
an unpleasant demonstration if a lack of lib
erality led the minister into very pronounc
edly "improving the occasion." There was
ar; exjiectant hush as tho minister announced
bis text: ''Died Abner as the fool dieth."
The sermon was a tribute, eloquent and
evidi iiily sincere, to the character of the de
ceav.l. H is generous nature was expatiated
hi at length and then the clergyman
s-iiiiplv rojicatod his text: "Died Abner as the
fool an-lli." His goodness as a brother, ion
ncd friend were done full justice to and
eoc.elu lion of lliislhe clergyman again said
iHcr the text: "Died Abner as the fool
lii'-tb." Ilis public spirit, the gap his
lii'.vnl made in tho c-ommunity wore not
on.ituvloitly t close with the inevitable
vionisif (he text: "Died Abner s the fool
liii ili.'' The lnc.iii npis fded out. Oneofth
b ivs" uii.lgcd another and 1111001011 what he
tltoiiLiht of tiie seruion. "1'ho sermon," the
otii -r answered; "the sermon was lii-st-nite
but what, 11 t'xl !"
