V A LU E OF A NAM E.
I t s Bound H a l M uch to Do w ith the
P o ssessor's Success In L ife.
Once In the days o f the empire there
was a French officer who bad done
such meritorious service in ambordl-
nate ranks that his superior recom
mended him to Napoleon for promo
tion. The young officer labored under
the misfortune o f having a very out
landish name. Hla parents bad made
an absurd patronymic even more so
by adding at his baptism a ridiculous
cognomen. When Napoleon heard this
name pronounced he straightway re
fused to grant the promotion asked.
The reason he gave for his refusal was
that he did not believe anybody affll
la ted with such a name could become
great or hold a high position with dig
nity. He expressed a doubt whether
he himself could ever have risen to
be first consul and empercr if he had
bad the misfortune to be called by a
name that sounded ridiculous.
Napoleon was familiar wttb the his
tory o f his own and of ancient times,
and he found much In his reading to
warrant him in believing that a pre
posterous name was a serious handi
cap to success I d a civil or military
career. Authors, Inventors and quiet
and studious scientists have occasion
ally done fairly well regardless of
tbelr names, but It Is a fa c t as Napo
leon suggested, that popular states
men, warriors, and heroes have usual
ly had dignified, sonorous, fine-sound
ing. and rather abort names. This has
been mors or less true of all nations.
The Hebrew nomenclature la full of
long and difficult names, but the most
illustrious Biblical characters, from
Adam to Maccabeus, have bad names
which slip smoothly from the tongue.
The same thing U noticed in Greek
and Roman history, as ia illustrated by
Hercules. Pericles, Alexander, Caesar,
Cicero, Augustus; and in mors mod
ern European history by Lao, Charles
Edward, William, Cromwell, Napoleon,
American history furnishes no
exception. Washington, Lincoln, Grant
Sherman, Sheridan and all tbe Presi
dents had fine-sounding names.
Although ws might naturally expect
that Russia and Japan would afford
many exceptions to this general rule,

Oriental war la not bringing any of
them to glory. The Stlnkywltzes, the
Obulowaklyskles, a nd the Klmi-llla-mla-
llll-ls have been kept In tbe back
ground, and In their stead have ap
peared men with names so short sim
ple, and forceful in sound that they
could be used for a battle-cry or a
watchword. Togo, Nogi, Stoeasel, Ku-
ropatkin, Kurokl, and Oyama are now
tbe popular and newly made heroes In
Russia and Japan. So. In spite o f tbe
many varieties of people and their
countless linguistic peculiarities,- It
seems that Napoleon was Justified In
believing that the sound of a name
has much to do with the possessor's
success in life.— Kansas City Journal.
