ASTORIA, OREGON, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1884,
How Trival Incident Have Changed the
"Life and Character.
It h&a been Baid that there never
was an individual born whose whole
career did not hinge ufon a chance
of accident Whether or not an as
sertion so broad and sweepingbe true
it is a fact that the hjstory of men
who have stood in. tno ioremost. ran
is rich with instances to the effects of
happy chance or accident.
Thus Wallenstein. the magnificent,
the great captain who never lost a
battle, was, until the ago of manhood,
little better than an idiot, until a
chance fall down a stone staircase in
jured his head, but cleared his clouded
intellect. Mahillon was a mere idiot
untiLa similar happy chance fall re
stored him to reason. Tne gomen
genius of Charles Diokens might have
remained forever unsuspected butlor
chance. Dickens in early life was
enamoured of the stage. After many
attempts he succeeded An gaining a
promise from themanagerof theCov
ent Garden theater to accord his his
trionic powers a private hearing. A
chance exposure to a rainstorm
brought on a cold which prevented
Dickens from keeping hi3 engage
ment and thus the stage lost an as
piring actor, wnue literature gameu
a kine. Thorwaldsen. the great Dan
ish sculptor, after working for months
unrecognized, in xtome, ueieruimeu. w
despair to return home and lay down
the sculptor's chisel forever. A chance
error by a careless clerk in drawing
his passport detained him twenty-iour
nours. .During tnat interval 01 wait-
lng Mr. Hope walked into his studio,
admired his Jason in clay and aroused
the despondent Dane's hope by order
ing a copy in marble. Thorwaldsen
unpacked his boxes and never after
ward in his long career lacked patron
age. KacheL the great tragedienne,
was, when a child, a street singer, and
as such might have passed into
womanhood and old age had not a
party of critics dining together
chanced to hear her loud, clear voice
beneath their window.' They ob
served the child's wonderful face and
eyes, and in a kindly spirit, aroused
no doubt by the wine they had drank,
proposed to her protectors to place
her in the conservatory as a pupil.
Sir Walter Baleigh would probably
haye remained out of favor with the
court had Elizabeth, on her walk to
tho Tower, chanced to 'take a path
less muddy. Every Teader of histoty
knows the story, how tho gallant Sir
Walter spread his cloak beneath
the royal feet and was rewarded
with his sovereign's smile and
speedy Restoration to favor. Pot-
emkin, the favorite of Cathenne
II., and the founder of the pow
erful Bussian family which beam his
name, would doubtless have remained
an obscure soldier had not a trivial
accident a chance, in fact changed
his destiny. After Catherine had de
posed her weak husband and herself
assumed the scepter, she was accus
tomed to parade the streets of St.
Petersburg, sword in hand, at the
head of her troops. One day Potem-
Kin noticed her sword bore no knot
He boldly Btepped forward, braving
the knout for his insubordination,
and offered his. The czarina accept
ed it, and, struck by the handsome
young lieutenant, asked his name and
regiment, and it he would not like to
serve her in the palace. Haul Pasha,
the sultan's chief of artillery and
most trusted adviser, was a tinner.
Employed in the palace he offered to
mend a valuable French clock, as no
clockmaker was available, and did the
work so well that the sultan bade him
lay aside his tinner's service and
serve him. Sir .Robert Wilson, one of
England's best generals, owes his ele
vation from a desk in a solicitor's
office to a chance meeting with" the
Duke of York in the rain. Of Ben
jamin DisraelLthere was a story cur
rent years ago to prove that the
building of his greatiess was helped
along by chance. In his youth he
was a reckless spendthrift His am
bition was to lead his party, but such
was the state of his finances that at
one time it was doubtful whether he
could longer support the expense of
a seat in parliament. Accident, or
chance, threw him in the way of a
noted money lender in London, who
liked the brilliant young dandy on
first sight and did what he had never
done before nor afterward to any
man, lent Disraeli 5,000 on no other
security than his genius and am
bition. Disraeli never forgot the
service, and never tired, sohe story
goes, of returning it in the Tarious
ways which 'his after influence en
abled him to do.
George Stephenson, the inventor
of the locomotive, was born with a
taste for mechanics. His parents
were too wretchedly-poor to give him
the advantages of education. At a
very tender agaie was compelled to
work as a pit-boy at twopence a day
to help support the family. Deep in
the mines, shut out from everything
that cheered the senses, young Steph
enson found mnch to stimulate his
mechanical bent He mastered the
hoisting machinery and longed to be
allowed to take charge of it One
day the engineer chanced to stumble
and injured himself. Young Stephen
son promptly offered to supply his
place and proved "his skill so well that
the mine superintendent gave him
permanent charge of the machinery
and thus gave"him an opportunity to
observe and think and build until the
"Bockef appeared as a result of his
