IN every field of human endeavor, he that is first must per
petually live in the white light of publicity. Whether the
leadership be vested in a man or in a business, emulation
and envy are ever at work. In art, in literature, in music, in in
dustry, the reward and the punishment are always the same.
'I he reward is widespread recognition ; the punishment, fierce
denial and detraction. When a man's work becomes a standard
for the whole world, it also becomes a target for the shafts of
the envious few. If his work be merely mediocre, he will be left
severely alone if he achieve a masterpiece, it will set a million
tongus a wagging. Jealousy does not protrude its forked
tongue at the artist who produces a commonplace painting.
Whatsoever you write, or paint, or pray or sing, or build, no one
will strive to surpass or to slander you unless your work be
stamped with the seaL of genius. Long, long, after a great
work, or a good work has been done, those who are disappoint
ed or envious, continue to cry out that it can not be done. Spite
ful little voices in the domain of art were raised against our own
Whistler as a mountebank, long after the big world had ac
claimed him its greatest artistic genius. Multitudes flocked to
Rayreuth to worship at the musical shrine of Wagner, while the
little group of those whom he had dethroned and displaced, ar
gued angrily that he was no musician at all. The little world
continued to protest that Fulton could never build a steamboat
while the big world flocked to the river banks to see his boat
steam by. The leader is assailed because he is a leader, and
the effort to equal him is merely added proof of that leadership.
Failing to equal or excel, the follower seeks to depreciate and
to destroy but only confirms once more the superiority of that
wmcn ne strives to supplant. There is nothing new in this. It is
as old as the human passions envy, fear, greed, ambition, and
rhe desire to surpass. And it all avails nothing. If the leader
truly leads, he remains the leader. Master-poet, master
painter, master-workman, each in his turn is assailed and each
holds his laurels through the ages. That which is good or great
makes itself known no matter how loud the .clamor or denial.
That which deserves to live lives.

T. HE difference between the French and the American
memories of the war is indicated by the news of the ap
pointment of three new marshals of France. For our
part we managed to squeeze out one general's commission, and
there our open-hearted distribution of honors ended abruptly.
Having done our duty by Gen. Pershing we proceeded to investi
gate nearly every Doay else, lnose w&didn t investigate we at
least reduced in rank, and some have had both rewards thrust
upon them. Out of a long list of rear admirals, some of them
highly distinguished in the service, we have chosen not one for
the highest naval position. Do they just naturally do these
things better in France, or are the French more romantic and
more grateful by temperament? ,
Probably there are good practical reasons for the contrast
France, living in the shadow of increasing German enmity, is
well aware that she must uphold the military tradition and hon
or her military leaders until the threat of another invasion is
finally ended. The United States as a whole plans no more
wars; it is sick of wars and all their paraphernalia. It distrusts
t he military virtues and looks askance at military glory. But if
there were any real prospect of trouble with Japan or England
we should welcome our heroes home to a very different tune.
Be the explanation what it may, our gratitude has been
small or ill expressed. These are days of economy, but a gen
t ral's pay is not, after all, much more than a major general's,
i.nd neither is very much; nor is the compensation of an admiral
hkely to bankrupt the treasury. New York World.

Jority at a meeting organised by the

who voted were rnemhers of the the

The suggestion tatr pjays be giver

Mr. Bouchler said that only such
plays should be produced on Sunday)
