The Prince of Wales is qui to right In hts'n
ference, but it may fairly be doubted wheth
er to the majority of men It is a great mis
fortune to have an occupation which does
not absorb the attention and elicit the char
acter of the man, as any artistic occupation
absorbs his attention and enlists his char
acter. Are humdrum occupations without great
advantages)1 Consideronly that almost all
occupations, even when requiring at first
very considerable skill and delicacy of
manipulation, tend to become humdrum
80 soon as the art Is acquired of doing
them with the highest efficiency. Un
less the method of doing them has to
be varied In every separate case, the art
soon becomes a sort of tact hardly requir
ing the serious attention of the artificer.
Iok at a woman with even the most elab
orate fancy work. As soon as her fingers
are well trained to It and dischargo their
functions as they ought, you see that she
hardly ntjeds to think at all of what she is
doing, and the heart and soul wander off
to the topics which Interest her most. You
see a smile steal over her face as she re
members her children's quaint little vaga
ries, or she sighs as she thinks of the dying
mother or the anxious husband.
Her heart and soul are no longer in the
mere work, elaborate though It be. The
stitch has been thoroughly learned, the
practice of it is merely automatic "reflex
action," as the physiologists call it and
the heart and -soul are at liberty to expati
ate on any subject which most deeply in
terests her. In a word, even the difficult
technique in which she is engaged has be
come for her a humdrum occupation. Now,
when nature takes so much pains to reduce
the organization of even the highest skill
to an automatic process, is it likely that
there can be any great misfortune In the
mere fact that a constantly Increasing pro
portion of the work of the world tends to
become automatic and falls naturally into
tho character of humdrum work?
We suspect that it Is no misfortune at
nil, that it may beon the whole a beneficent
provision for liberating the heart and soul
of the worker to dwell on the class of sub
jects which best feed or at all events, in
the higher class of minds best feed the
heart or the imagination. We remember
hearing how three sisters, all of them wom
en of agooddeal of intelligence and warmth
of character, were once comparing their
favorite occupations. One of them said she
enjoyed her music so much, another that
reading poetry was her chief delight, while
the third, and certainly the cleverest of the
three, said, "Well, for my part, there Is
nothing that soothes me so much as patch
ing un old chemise." The truth Was that
that not very intellectual occupation set her
mind oiid heart free to dwell on the thoughts
and objects which most deeply Interested
her, while at tho same time giving her the
soothing feeling that she was doing some
thing useful and contributing to the econo
my and comfort of the household. Indeed
we doubt very much whether It Is either al
ways or ofttn a great blessing to have for
your chief work in life that which takes up
your whole attention and admits of no ex
cursions beyond Its range.
It may be a very great blessing when the
subjects of thought on which the mind
chiefly dwells are of a very painful and un
nerving kind. But In nine cases out of ten
this is not so, and the only effect of ah oc
cupation which concentrates the whole en
ergy of the mind is to exclude from a man's
thoughts those casual glimpses of his fel
low creatures' interest and feelings by
which mainly he comes to understand
them and to realize that there are a good
many competing Interests In the world and
that he is not the very center of creation.
We believe that what are called the en
grossing and Intellectual occupations are
by no means those which most promote the
health and unselfishness of the soul. As It
is not an engrossed mind which catches the
most vivid glimpses of the beauty of na
ture, so It Is not an engrossed mind which
catches the lUost vivid glimpses of the
needs and characteristic attitudes and un
satisfied desires of the people about us.

The Sturdy Qualities That Go to Slake Up
a Capable Man Fall to Piuh Illm Into
Prominence Except us Clianco Lends Its
Aid Some Xoted Examples.
Chance is everything. Opportunltyand
Juck moan much. The great race, it seems
to me, is but a creature of conditions. Now
mid then we hear Individuals spoken of as:
"Ho is a man of programme. He fixes n
course and adheres to It." And that re
mark Is generally made concerning some
ono who has achieved success, either as a
money getter or holder, or as a factor on
some elevated plane of life, but when'you
come to think of It the beggar In the street
may be quite as determined in his pro
gramme, and possibly It Is his very pro
gramme mat Keeps mm wliere he is.
Burglars, highwaymen and rascals gen
srnlly are quite as likely to bo men of pro
gramme, to which they'adhcre with a de
termination that may well be called obsti
nate, as any others. My own theory U that
mankind fa made what It is by circum
stances. Very few of us with deliberate In
tent surveyed the country of opportunity.
Very few of us with ax In hand cleared
away a path through what appeared an Im
penetrable forest, which being followed,
led to a partial clearing, where ajersistent
labor with the ax and the grub furnished
us a fallow field In which to plant the seed
of today that we might reap the harvest of
tomorrow. I am very sure I didn't.
And as I look around me I am quite con
vinced that the very large majority of my
fellow citlwiis did no such a thing. What
makes this man a preacher, this a writer,
this a doctor, this a soapmaker, this a sales
man, this a banker? In some Instances It
Is natural fitness unquestionably, but lu a
very great majority of cases it is simply
tho outcome of all controlling circum
stances and conditions.
Tako the case of Henry Ward Beecher.
Being a clergyman's son, he, like all his
father's children, studied for the ministry.
I forget how muuy sous tho old gentleman
had, but six, at all events, every one of
whom became a clergyman. One ot them
was no more fit to be a preacher than I. One
would have made a most admirable teacher,
professor, but he Is no preacher. In fact, of
them all the two who succeeded in life
were Henry Ward and Thomas K., but
they were sons of Lyman Beecher, and it
was as natural for them to yield to the all
controlling circumstances and conditions of
their father's family and fall into the min
isterial lino as it is for the son of a butcher
to follow his father's calling.
But to return to Beecher. When he was
in the west, nothing but un accident pre
vented his becoming a railroad man. You
didn't know that, did your He was pastor
of a church in Indianapolis. A new rail
road was projected, and a superintendent
was to be chosen. A bank president who
was one of tho chief .directors bad been
greatly Impressed with the go ahead man
ner and zeal ot tho young parson, and con
cluding that he was possessed of tho qual
ities that would make him a first rate rail
road official proposed his name. The con
test was close. Beecher lost by one vote.
Now suppose for a moment that he had
been successful. He would have gone ahead
In his calling, and the fire and energy and
vital Industry which were prominent among
his qualities would rapidly,unquestionabIy,
have forced him to the front.
And then, growing as the west grew,
nothing under heaven, could have kept him
out of politics, fend'the large probabilities
are that he would hive becomo'ft, foremost
figure In national councils, with' a seat in
the senate and possibly a home In the
White House. It was a little thing that
switched him. One vote settled the mat
ter. As it was with Beecher, bo unques
tionably it Is with multitudes of men less
Not many years ago a humble Irish
American worker was sticking type in the
composing room of a neighboring city. The
newspaper was not very successful then.
Its editor died. None of the reporters
seemed quito up to the mark, and the pro
prietor, a nervous, fidgety man, allowed
things to drift. The reporters printed what
they" pleased. Several paragraphs'pertfiient,
timely, "evincing thought, were written by
a compositor and handed to the proprietor,
who published them. They attracted at
tention. He asked him to write more. In
a little while Thomas Ktnsella became the
editor of the Brooklyn Eagle, which ere he
died was of the Ave chief n&wspaper pr6p
ertles In the country. If the editor of that
paper had continued his work, Kinsella
would have remained In the composing
room, instead of which he left bis case, En
tered the sanctum, formed political and
financial alliances, went to congress and
died a comparatively wealthy and a very
generally esteemed citizen of that great
It was the purest incident of an accident
that secured for him a commanding posi

What nonsense It would be to say that Gar
field when he was driving horses on a t6w
path had any idea, any plan, any pro
gramme, the end of which was the presi
dency of tho United States! It was charice,

The story Is familiar to you alL Twenty
thousand people were packed In the great

of them cheered themselves hoarse over the
namoof Grant, while the other 10,000 en

Blaine. Now, If Grant's friends had been
the stronger Id. the convention, there would
have been no Gurfleld, or If Blaine's friends
bad bad sufficient strength to carry the

The happy accident was that there was

The chamber hus lost an Original char
acter in the person of M. de Qaste, dep
uty for Brest, Ho wns a simple, hon
est fellow and enjoyed the esteotn not
only of his colleagues of the Left, but
ulso of his adversaries on tho Right. He
made himself celebrated by his ovcrlast
ing fur coat, which he woro in nlLBea
Bons and which earned for him tho name
of Pere Hiver. Ho was likewise irrov
erently called L'Honiine-Chlen on ac
count of his shaggy hair and whiskers,
which ho allowed to grow in wild con
fusion and raado him look liko a skyo
terrier. His umbrella, his hat and par
ticularly tho cut of his clothes also reu
derod him famous. His colleagues smiled,
but liked him none the less for his eccen
tricities. I He had one great day in tho chamber,
when as doyen d'ago in tho placo. of M.
Pierre Blanc, who was unwell, he pre
sided over the first sitting of the session.
On that occasion Tie' delivered a speech
in which he embraced every- political
question under tho sun, and might have
gone on occupying the house till dooms
day had ho not found' it suddenly empty.
He was most assiduous, arriving the first
and leaving tho last. Ho was born in
1811 and was originally a civil engineer
of tho first class. Unlike most of his
republican colleagues, ho was a stanch
Every day, as regular as clockwork, he
would mount the tribune rnd bring for
ward some unexpected motion, which,
much to his sorrow, was Invariably
shelved. Once, however, his motion was
passed, and nobody was more surprised
than himself. Of later years he took to
femalo emancipation and attended the
meetings oTtlio strongtninded sisterhood,
to which two of his daughters belong.
At home in his native Brittany ho was
beloved by all for his generosity and tho
pleasure he took in doing servico to his
fellow countrymen. His curious figure
