New Year. " This is the season for
retrospdct and moralizing , but we for

Tlio RcnNons an Given by
Men ofOur Country.
[ Cor. United States Uconomist. ]
Let mo give your readers the benefit
of the replies I have received from lead
ing men of our country to the question ,
i4\V hat , in your observation , have been
the chief causes of the numerous failures
m life of business and professional
men ? "
Governor St. John answers : "Idleness ,
intemperance. " Alexander H. Stephens
answers : "Want of punctuality , honesty ,
and truth. " Hon. Darwin H. James
answers : "Incorrect views of the great
end and aim of life. Men are
not contented to lives of integrity
and upright ness. They want to
get ahejad too fast , and arc led into
temptation. " President Bartlett , of
Dartmouth college , names as caused of
failure : , "Lack of principle , of fixed
prrpose , of perseverance. " President
Lhpt , of Harvard , replies : "Stupidity ,
ia incss , ra mcss , anddishonesty. . "
Dr. II. M. Dexter , of The Ccngregation-
al.tt , answers : " 1. Want of tlioiough-
ne.ss of preparation. 2. Want of fixed
ness of purpose. 3. Want of faith in
the inevitaole triumph of right and
truth. "
Anthony Comstock's answers are :
"Unholy living and dishonest practices ,
lust and. intemperance , living beyond
one's means. " ilr. II. E. Simmons , of
the American Tract society , replies :
"East living , mental , spiritual and bodily
ily ; lack of attention to the details pi
bua.ness. " Gen. O Howard answers in
substance : "Breaking the divine laws
of the body by vice , those of the mind
by overwork and idleness , and those of
the heart by making an idol of self. "
Professor llomer B. Spraguc , of Boston ,
answers : " 1. Ill health. 2. Mistakes
in the choice of employment ! J. Lack
of persistent and protracted effort. 4.
A low ideal , making success to consist
-ersonal ] aggrandizement , rather than
in the training and developement of a
true and noble character. "
Dr. Lyman Abbott answers : "Tho
combinect spirit of laziness and self-con
ceit that makes a man unwilling to do
anything unless he can choose just what
ha will do. " Mr. A. W. Tenney , of
Brooklyn , icplies : ' "Outside of in
temperance , failure to grasp hold , scat
tering too much , want of integrity and
promptness , unwillingness to achieve
success by earning it iu the old-fashioned
way. " The attorney-general of a neigh
boring state replies : "Giving ' beyond in
come , and speculating with' borrowed
funds ; unwillingness to begin at the
foot of the ladder ami work up. Young
men want to be masters at the start ,
and assume to know before they have
learned. " And another reason in the
same line : "Desiring the success that
another , has , without being Avilling to
work as that man does. Giv ug money-
m-'king a first place and right-doing a
second place. "
„ u gc Tourgee ; author of "A Fool's
Ur-and , ' * considers the frequent cause
of business collapse to be : "Trying to
arry too big a load. " As to others ,
i.e says ; "I don't know about a profes
sional man's failing , if he works , keeps
solcr , and sleep at home. Lawyers ,
ministers , and doctors live on the sins
of the people , and of course , grow fat
under reasonable exertion , unless the
competition is too great. It requires
real genius to fail in either of these
walks of life. " Hon. Joseph Mcdilj , ex-
mayor of Chicago , answers : "Liquor
drinking , gambling , reckless speculation ,
dishonesty , tricky conduct , cheating ,
idleness , shirking hard work , frivolous
reading , lack of manhood in the battle
of life , failure to improve opportunities. "
Among the causes of failure given by
my correspondents many may bo classi-
lie'd under the general fault of wavering ,
suelr " " "non-stick-
as "wavering purpose ,
to-it-neiS , " "failure to grasp and hold , "
"scattering too much , " "trying to do teem
m : ny things , rather than stick to the
' "
one 'thing "one knows most about. " A
young m.n spends seven years in a gro
cery .sioiv , and when he has just , learned
the"bx siness he concludes to go into dry-
j.ooK By failing to choose that first
in ; has throw n away seven years' experi
ence. Pro ! ably , after learning the dry
goods business , he will conclude to be
come a watchmaker , and at last become
a " ' -nek-j.t-ll-trades , " good at none.
A i rorn ncnt merchant says :
"Nearly all failures in legitimate busi-
ne s come from not serving an appren
ticeship to it , ' ? that ia , from leaving a
bus.ness one knows for another which he
does not understand.
Another cause of failure is the dispo
sition to escape hard work , and get rich
in haste "desiring the success another
man has , without being willing to work
as that man does , and begin as he did ,
at .the foot of the ladder. " How many
who wcie in haste to j et rich , to reap
w. hout patient industry in sowing , have
le.uned the truth of the old proverb.
"The more haste , the worse speed. "
Tlic Art of Short Stories.
[ London Saturday Review. ]
While the chief qualification of a
novf list may be the felicity with which
h d ; pcts life , the chief qunl.ti s of the
writti * of short stories must be in-
g u ity , originality , arid compression ,
tune qualities a. good novelist maybe
and oltcn is without. If , in addition ,
the writer of 5hort stories has a touch
of fantasy so much the better. But
the one absolute indispensable quality is
ingenious originality. And , therefore ,
the two greatest writers of the genuine
short story have been Nathaniel Haw
thorns and Edgar Allan Pee.

There are three kinds of silk-worms :
Annuals , bivollines , and trivoltines.
The annuals produce hut one brood a

vollincs turee. After considerable ex
perience wo are satisfied , that the last
two breeds cannot be laised as profitably
as the puie annuals.

Xot one fanner in five hundred keeps

The Girls At Z.on Branch *
[ "Slanhattan" In Chicago Journal ]
The most sightly and satisfactory
things to study at Long Branch are the
girls. They are constantly presenting
\ new and curious aspects of femininity.
Jufat now they are engaged in a light
for and against the bang. Shall or shall
not ( he "forehead be exposed to view ?
The curtain of hair is ordered up by a
mandate of fashion , but obedience is by
no means general. Girls with low
brows are willing to denude them , be
cause they know that , the effect , will be
pretty in "itself , besides nonplussing the
possessors of high foreheads , who r.e
bound to look odd in exposing an expan
sive portion of cranium so long kept
covered. The common result is a kind
of compromise cropping of front locks ,
and a frizzy arrangement like that
shown by Mrs. Langtry during her last
tour here.
The increase of apparent intellectuality
fe astonishing , but I am forced to write
that ( here is a corresponding loss o
prettiness. The change is improving to
only a small minority. Lawn tennis i
played in the most picturesque mannei
possible to art. The girls wear cost.nnes
for this game that are doubtless dis-
ti acting to impressionable observers.
Very jjtunty jockey caps ; Jersey waists
that arc pliant to every move of joint or
muscle underneath ; scarfs that encircle
shifting outlines , skirts that are short
and scant , stockings that are bright in a
brief sectional view , an 1 canvas bhocs
matching the dress in color , that make
a show o utility in , their rubber
soles all these components of
the tennis toilets are highly ap-
i j proved by the admiring eye of
j man , when the game is pitched on the
lawn of a big hotel , and the adjacent
veranda holds a crowd of critical spec
tators , it is a stretch of credulity to sup
pose that the girls are other than con
scious performers ; and the success which
most of them achieve in an affectation
of indifference to the staring , of com
plete absorption in the exercise , and of
unstudiedncss in graceful posing , is re
markable pioof of the American trait of
cool self-possession.
The expenditure for dress is extrava
gant or not , according as the indulge * s
can not or can well afford it. Hard
times have not. appreciably lessened the
lisplay of costly clothes. A few of the
wearers in former years have disap
peared , but their places are taken by
fresh dressers. Ou the whole there is
no deterioration.
TZie Netv So Kl naS.
[ St. Louis Globe-Democrat. ]
The fog-signal apparatus is now con
structed in such a manner that in calm
weather its sound may be heard twenty
miles. This power is gained by means
of two slotted cylinders , one fixed and
the other revolving in it. The slots , as
they pass one another , stop or cut oil'
the passage of compressed air or steain
and thus cause a series of vibrations ,
and consequently a musical not' ' , th"
pitch of which depends upon theei
of the revolving cylinder. In or t
vary the note , it is only ncce - :
control this velocity. The doubj
horn is formed with a easing
which is a fixed a slotted ey. r
and' a revolving cylinder m . . .
upon a spindle. The slots arc form. .1.
each cylinder at opposite inclined ar. lc- ,
so thac the motive fluid impinging
against a number of inclined planes
causes the inner cylinder to revolve with
rapidity , carrying with it two disks , at
tached to the common spindle. and upon
their peripheries are pressed levers , un
der the action of small pistons operated
by diaphragms , to the outer surface of
which compressed air is admitted.
When the high note is required , one
brake ia put oh ; for tne low note , both
brakes. _
A Sea. Cook's Training.
[ Tlio Century. ]
A sea cook is a peculiar character , re
quiring a special training. Ho must
know how to prepare a sea hash out of
salt-horse Ilavored with onions , incrusted
with , the variegated browns of polished
mahogany , and savory enough to create
an appetite in a stomach that the toss
ing waves have rendered as sensitive as
rhe needle of a compass. He must un
derstand how to make eatable bread ,
and take his duff out of the kettle on
Sunday as light as cotton and as deli
cate as sponge cake. Besides this , he
must know how to economize in the use
of water and provisions , and , more diffi
cult yet , ho must contrive to keep the
crew satisfied with the mess he cooks
for them , while , at the same time , he
looks out sharply for the interests of his
employer and the captain. He must
also bc proof against the worst weather ,
and undeviatingly punctual to the hours
of meals. It goes without saying that
it is not an easy thing to find such a
paragon in the galley ; but when he is
there , ho is , next to the captain , by far
the most important character on board.
Tlio Earth as a ProjcctlJc.
[ Exchange. ]
If , looking at the earth in an artil-
tery point of view , and follow.g the
principles Ilelmholtz has laid uown. the
earth were considered an enormou- pro
jectile , and if it were supposed furf.ier
the whole energy stored up in gun
powder could be utilized , there would
yet be required a charge 150 times
greater than its own weight , or ! JOO
times than its volume , to communicate
to the earth her orbital motion.
TJie Secret of Success.
[ Phrenological Journal. ]
Daniel Webster on one occasion pre
sented , with a brief epistle , a valuable
book to a literary society at Harvard.
The note , so carelessly elegant and
graceful , elicited many compliments. It
was discovered , however , when the book
was examined , that the donor had
thoughtlessly left between its pages a
paper on which half a dozen different
forms of the same note were written.
