It w frequently said that Cod ean tot do anything
with a discouraged person. Such remarks will not
stand the test of thoughtful examination. In the

effort to prevent it. In the second place it ia a fact
that God has accomplished a great deal of good work

His First Wedding.
It was a warm day In early spring
when the steamer Governor Ramsay
tied up at the wharf and Captain John
Rowllns leaped ashore. The Governor
Ramsay, named In honor of the first
territorial governor of Minnesota, piled
n the utiber Mississippi. ' past the
place where now are situated the two
great twin cities of the middle wst
St Paul and Minneapolis.
Captain Rowllns was In a burry
when he went ashore this bright spring
afternoon. He woe behind tln i,1,
his vessel mvst make several nilles
before "tlolng up time." But the Gov
ernor Ramsay had aboard her two flut
tering hearts that Impatiently longed
to beat as one and the master of the
packet was In search of a minister or
a Justice of the peace.
The skipper made his way to the
store, one of the few buildings that
stood In the clearing by the river bank
and Inquired for a mlnUter.
"There's none hereabouts." repllej
the storekeeper, and then after a mo
mnt's thought, added, "But there's
George Egbert over there. He's the
Justice of the peace."
"He'll do." exclaimed the captain
and he hastened to the place where
the red shlrted Justice was building
"Sure," was the ready response of
the young carpenter-Justice when be
learned what the steamboat man de
sired. "I haven't been Justice long
nnd I've never married anyone yet, but
I guess X can try." Bo saying, he

of that same editor, and he succeeds. Ihis has been
hausting discouragement. Such an one, ' perforce
of his constitutional tempcrment, has exalted ideals,
and, as he will necessarily fail to realize those ideals
and, as he will necessarily fail to realize those Ideals
at once, he is frequently- smitten both with disap
pointment and discouragement. ;
But wherein is' the use of discouragement! It
lies in the fact that it makes an opportunity for the
discouraged one to consider specially the ground of
his failure to perform his task. He may discover a
lack of preparation for the task; or he may see that
he has been too slovenly or slack in his work. Take
the case of some young person who has written an
article for some periodical. He sends it to the edi
tor, expecting its acceptance. It is returned to him
in ashort time, accompanied, perhaf8, by a kind
note. He is discourage'd.
At first he is inclined not to attempt to produce
another article for any paper. Then, after some re
flection, he. r?l.TW fa wake his discouragement p
occasion for spurring all of his powers into produc
ing an article which will far excell the rejected one.
With his powers of mind mightily aroused he does
is enthusiasm. ' .
When a man's heart is so big that it goes out to,
all men, when he feels an interest in what interests
them, he possesses an open sesame to all hearts.
In the captain's cabin Egbert met
Reuben M. Richards, sheriff of Ben
ton, one of the three counties of the
lerru'Jry vi jujuiirBuia, uiiu aim tMi.
V. Jfunson, the bride-to-be. .The
young Justice was personally acquaint
ed with both, and after many stam
mers and blushes from both parties
he performed, his first wedding cere
mony. Captain Rowllns stood by and
gave the bride away and the crew
of the Governor Ramsay witnessed the
event. Then with the remark "no
charges, the pleasure of uniting two
such good people Is worth the fee,,
and I wish you well," George Egbert
return to shore and again took "up his
work. The first wedding In the terri
tory of Minnesota had been solemnised.
"That was In I860," mused Captain
George Egbert veteran bailiff of the
United States district court," and I'm
M years of age now, but the occasion
of my first wedding ceremony. Is as
green 5n my memory as If It were yes
terday. Since then I have officiated at
many weddings, but none that I've
ever performed, or heard of since, have
been as unlaue."
Captain Egbert Is well known ' In
Portland, where he has resided for the
past 1 years. He has been an officer
of the federal court for several years,
and In spite of his age la a very ac
tive man and takes great delight In
"spinning yarns with the boys."
The captain went to Minnesota

territory and the wedding ceremony
related occurred at a time when most
of the country was a wilderness and

ties, Ramsny, Jefferson and Benton.
the experience of many of the most popular and val
uable writers in all past years. Mr. Kipling confes
ses that he had become greatly discouraged at the
time when composed "The Recessional." He felt
so leaden and limp over his seeming failures that he
scarcely knew what to do; and yet that very poem
made his fame resplendent all over the world.'
Enthusiasm needs only direction to turn it into'
success. And the direction it needs is system.
And enthusiasm, like system, is for stenographers
as well as for statesmen ; for cash girls as well as for
capitalists; for you as well as for your neighbor.'
Enthusiasm has covered the earth with its accom-.
plishments. Enthusiastic republics have vanquished ,
dried-up empires. Enthusiastic business men have
captured the trade of staid campetitors. Enthusi
astic young men have built up businesses where stolid
capital has lacked the courage to try. . ; ,
To understand men you must be able to put your-,
self in their place, think their thoughts, and appre- ,
ciatQ their prejudices. This is the key which unlocks '
all secrets, the magnate, which attracts, strangers and ;
holds friends. But a pretended sympathy will iiot
do. However studiously he may school himself in
simulating a pleasant smile ; however well he may
effect a hearty handshake, he will surely fail unless ?
his heart is in his action. He can got play a part 'and i
expect to be taken in earnest. Sycophancy is nevef
the result of sympathy, but of inordinate self-esteem, j
True politeness comes from the heart. But sympathy )
must be controlled unless it becomes a weakness, and ;
energy must be Caref nly directed lest it be wasted. J
Knowledge is absolutely hec&saFy", for gilided by r
and persistency, while sympathy gives tact and pa ?
tience, all of which are essential qualities.

from long experience on the ground,
declares that the action contemplated
by the signers to the appeal would be
a grave error of judgment and would
frustrate the very object which they
have In view. He says what must be
obvious to any man with ordinary In
tellingnce and the power of a few
seconds' consecutive thought that th
daclaration by either political " party
for Filipino Independence would be
promptly known throughout the
Islanda and that agitators, malcon
tents tnd all the other restless ele
ments would Immediately crystallise,
demand that a definite time be fixed
for the performance of the promise
and discount to the great detriment
of the peaceful evolution which must
come before the Islanders are fitted for
self-government, any acts and com
mittals by the United, States toward
autonomy. The result would , be, of
course, only confusion and trouble, to
no possible good. The law of evolu
tion, as President Harris in his Insti
tute address so clearly points out. Is
the true method of the adjustment of
affairs, and that Is of slow but peace-
...wittnn - -
The best thing In the world that can
happen to the United States and the
Philippines at the present time Is
peaceful and orderly development; th

The Filipino Manifesto.
The Filipino manifesto is another
excellent example of honorable and
well-meaning men who, with the best
of motives, go in the wrong way and
at the wrong time about the right
thing. As a practical matter of fact
there Isn't the slightest probability
that either of the great political part
ies will pay more than the most re
mote and respectful consideration to
the suggestion that a declaration for
the Independence of the Islands be In
corporated In Its platform, and so after
the first tipple on the surface of af-
agitators, disturbers ' and doctrinaires ,
who are never content unless they1 are
managing according to their own no
tions the affairs of others. Secretary
Taft also settles a minor. Issue In al
most effective and common sense way,
by explicitly denying the request that
Slxto Lopes, the professional Filipino
patriot nnd ally of Agulnaldo, by giv
ing a hundred thousand dollar bond,,
may be allowed to return to the1
Ulanda without taking the oath of al-
leglance to ' the United States. The" 'v
secretary very properly says that If he
means to behave himself, there Is no
reason why he should not take the '
oath, and If be does not there hi no
reason why he should be permtted to
land merely to make a disturbance.
