Hie Incompetence of Some Per
sons to Learn It.
Very Few of the Many Who Undertake
the Study Ever Become Proficient
. Horace Greeley and the
, . Stenographer.
There is a griotl deal of nonsense writ
ten and tsilkeil, both, by those wholrnow
and by tho;i.s who don't, concerning the
possibilities and actual achievements oi
shorthand -.vritin'r. Xot long- ago an
elderlv woman, aeeoinnanied bv a child
oi apparently about thirteen years o
age, appeared before a justice at the
Jefferson Market police court and tolc
a pitiful tale. She saitl that she was a
widow nnd that the child was her oiilj
daughter; that in order to procure some
employment for the girl she had beer
induced to send her to a school of type
writing and shorthand. She had paic
to the professor sixty-dollars of hei
hard earnings and had been informed
and ue-lieved that at the conclusion of 8
few months' tuition tins child would bt
able to earn a fair salary. The pro
fessor, however, had failed to carry ou?
his agreement, and at the conclusion 03
the tuition she found herself with hei
money gone and no probability of tht
fulfillment of the promises which hac
been made to her. She was informec
by the justice that if she had any
remedy at all it was in a civil suit foi
damages for breach of contract.
The experience of this child, says tht
New York Sun, is but a repetition oJ
the experiences of by far the largei
number of those who attempt to lean
shorthand writing.. It is a fact that but
a very few of those who begin to learr
ever sueeeed in becoming competent
stenographers. The experience detailed
so graphically and amusingly by Charier
Dickens m the story of "David Copper
field." which is said, io be in fact tht
experience of Dickens himself, is a fail
sample of the difficulties with which
the learner has to contend. Few per
sons, indeed, have the requisite perse
verance to continue the much-needeo
practice in the face of discouraging re
suits, which is essential before pro
ficieucy can possibly be reached.
Many of these failures might have
been predicted from the utart, because
of the utter disqualification of the
lcarntr on account of the lack of the
knowledge which :
must be bume 'in c:
re. necessary tc
'.i 1 that the .sub
jects wni.-h m:v pi.i:--Uiv be presented
for accurate reportiii;r comprise' the en
tire field of liiunnn l:nrvledge. There
is no department of jseicnee, literature
o art which may uot some time or
othe.- appe;.r in the course of speeches,
of ar.Tumeiits, f lectures, of briefs, oi
dissertations, of debates, or of dictation.
Thnvo is. of course, no ftenosrranhei
wno is so thoroughly familiar v.-itu in-
vocabulary even of his own Ui.:ijru:i:-. ii
all departments of study, as t K:
on the spur of the moment to ivjm t : e
enrately all kinds of scientific iv tier.
There are, in fact, but very few i" iki
most reliable stenographers in this oi
any other country who can be rc-liei
upon to give a. verbatim report at c
scientific congress. How iutlle. how
foolish, must it be, then, for mere chil
dren, for persons without even the
rudimentary elements of education, tc
undertake to qualify themselves for r.r.el
a business. And yet there are sl:orth::ut
schools and professors of slsorthanc
that take the money of pupils who jt
tempt thi3 impossible task, when it i:
known at the beginning t'.iat the moni'j
so expended is really thrown away bj
It was related of the late floract
Greeley that upon one occasion an in
competent stenographer w:i's cmloycf
by him to take at dictation' a v-ei.itiea:
speech. Jlr. Greeley talked away will,

Mr. Greeley had said that it entirely
useless, and with that force for which
Mr. Greeley was renowned among those
who knew him, the founder of the
Tribune exclaimed: ''What the. deuee
is stenography worth?"
There are limit:. to shorthand. Kvery
honest stenographer will admit that nc
person is able to report the most rapid
speakers or to follow with accuracy an
argument which consists of many refer
ences to scientific books and contains
quotations which must be accurately re
corded. In practice, wherever a speakej
makes r.se of 'many quotations, particu
larly of pot; try or of statistics, the sten
ographer is always anxious to be sup
plied with the quoted parts. Among
the verv best stenosrrapliers the prao

Not eyen Kipling can do more than

and still there are leaves, but they

The Hindoo fatalism ere tends even to
the intellectual side of life- In gram

so because it is so; fatalism kills out
reason as it kills out spiritual effort and
aspiration. I shall never forget trying
to get an explanation from a Hindoo
teacher of finding, in some of then
writings, a plural substantive mated to
a singular verb. ' .
"Why does not this plural noun take
a plural verb?"
"Because it takes a singular verb."
. "Because it is right that it should do
"Why wouldn't it be right that it
should take a plural verb?"
"Because it would be wrong."
"But I thought plural substantives
always took plural verbs?"
"Yet this one does not."
"No, this one does not."

"There is no rule. It does so becansa
It is right that it should do so."

The late. David Dudley Field knew
how to treat deserving young men ' of
his own profession. A young lawyer
from the . country happened to be in
London at the time of an important in

Mr. Field was there as an honored
delegate to the convention. The
great lawyer and the yonng man were
acquainted, but the latter was aston
ished and perhaps a little embarrassed
to find not only that he received tick

but was made to take a seat among
