An envious dull man once said
genius la It.«stilly, and other dull men
have made the saying famous. It was
never true, for genius has always
meant special ability. There are mil­
lions of genlusee; thousands climbing
to distinction, hundreds to great dis­
tinction. I have known several prom­
ising candidates In small towns where
I have llred. Among cats, dogs, cattle,
and the lon er animals generally, a
scrub nev*-r won a blue ribbon, but It
la characteristic In the family
that acrubs oftener achieve great dis­
tinction than thoroughbreds.
ably this comes about because there ts
no stud book among men. Goethe had
fourteen mlatresses and no great
Mozart attracted attention all over
Europe as a musician wheu tlx years
old. Before he died at thirty five be
bad written aymphonles and operas
now performed somewhere every week
In the year.
He never sat down to display bis
genius that be was not disturbed by a
bill seOSCtsr, by the acreamlcg of a
woman In labor, a row with relatives,
or some other Incident of love affairs
Had he been aa free to devote hla
time to music as “Heigh fo u n t“ was to
devote his time to winning races, there
ts no telling what heights Mozart
might have easily reached. Many pam-
l«-red ruie horses have won a quarter
of a million dollars In two years.
Mozart received less than a thou­
sand dollars from “ Figaro.” “I>on
Giovanni." and the Hequletu. and. when
be died, was so poor hla funeral cost
under five dollars.

Except In the ense of the late Thom­
as A. Edison 1 do not at the moment
recall another American who became
widely popular, and really d«served It.
Mr, Edison waa quiet, well behaved,
and a great w orker; what little he
said waa pr«>p««r for both young and
old to remember, but somehow he a t­
tracted the popular fnney. . . .
It '
la a very rare case. Millions of other
popular men have been unworthy of
popularity, as they have acted badly,
and taught bad lessons. Look at Jean
Jacques Rousseau. He waa scarcely a
respectable man, yet his popularity Is
growing s long time a fter hla death. I
Millions of people In all parts of the
world regard him as almost a saint,
nnd hla teaching as very Important.
Rousseau was once “kept” by a woman.
When she threw him over, he took up
with a kitchen wench, and sent their
children to orphan asylum s: he never
later saw oae of them.
