A DOGMATIC THOUGHT.
It Is hard to be forbidden the joy
entertaining a definite ambition.
"Without a tangible goal human In
dustry and application would be
stripped of their most specious ex
cuses for being. The privilege of
hoping is the only earthly heritage
of some men.
Consequently, It Is not surprising
that we listen with some bitterness
and much distrust to the voice of
Andrew S. Draper, commissioner of
education of New York, who warns
young men against making an effort
to win higher places In the world
than those occupied by their fathers
befpre them. In an address deliv
ered before a gathering of educators,
Mr. Draper urged his auditors to re
frain from encouraging individuals
In the belief that the presidency is
not unattainable. There can be but
one president to nbout thirty million
or so ellglbles, asserts Mr. Draper,
and by telling the normal youth that
he some day might win the honor Is
subscribing to an assumption which
is tantamount of deliberate false
hood. The chance of any given in
dividual being elected to the highest
office is so remote as to be practlcallj
without the pale of possibility. Why,
asks Mr. Draper, should we nurture
an idea In youth which must Invari
ably ond In cruel disappointment.
Mr. Draper only mentions the pres
idency for the sake of Illustrating a
tenet. Ills theory Is given a much
fcronder application. It concerns the
whole scheme of education which, he
avors, has the tendency of developing
In the ordinary young man false and
flattering notions of personal fitness.
When a boy enters the public schools
ho Is taught, in the beginning, that
no mark which his ambition might
set is unattainable. Therefore, If he
has tho desire to grow, coupled with
a certain dogged determination, he
will wnsto years In trying to cultivate
an intellect which may be infecund
and not worth Improving. Tho sons
of Martha, he asserts, cannot palm
themselves oK a. t.m progeny of
Mary, no matter how carefully and
earnestly they strive to efface tho
mark of service.
.Mr. Draper points to the social
conditions of Europe as nn ideal for
our contemplation. Young men of
other countries, he says, have no de
sires beyond following in tho foot
stops of their fathers. For genera
tions tho eldest sons of ono family
will occupy tho same grated stall in
a bank. Another family will furnish
-an Interminable succession of mor--chnnts,
or butlers, or coachmon, or
"banisters. Tho status of tho sons
will bo that of the fathers, neither
higher nor lower. The result, de
clares Mr. Draper, Is most satisfac
tory. Thoro Is no unrest, no discon
tent, no disappointment. Each man
docs what he has been born to do,
-without futile yearning for something
Of course, as Mr. Draper Intimates,
tho world offers a diversity of em
ployment. Thoro must bo gravo dig
gers and Iron workers ns well as phy
sicians and statesmen. And mankind
adjusts It self naturally to Its occu
pants. Circumstance, and special fit
ness, dotormlncs each man's work.
Education does not flx one's place In
tho world; comparative education
tfioes. Tho Inbortng man of today Is
hotter grounded In tho rudiments of
Seaming than was tho courtier, tho
uhlp's captain, tho apothecary of 200
yonrs ago; yot ho is a laboring man.
Tho ship's cnptaln of today knows
as much as tho pundit of years ago
riiis is develomuont. Mou continu
ally nro aspiring to a higher piano.
Ambition is rosponslblo for tho liu
jirovomont. Certainly, thoro cannot bo mmy
presidents. There can bo but fow
captains of Industry, fow successful
lawyorB, doctors and politicians. But.
if men nccoptod Mr. Drnpor'a theorv,
thoro would bo neither succoss nor
rfallurc only stagnation. It Is bet
ter to suffer dofent than to sit
down In ldlo resignation.
