or. Hut each acquaintance, ouch friend,
Ir n Ixwk of far more Interest to mo
thiui thomi on my library shelves that
await my perusal on n rainy day. I am
fond of history- and I tlnd it In my
Htudy oftuy friondR. Tho human omo
tlonR IntorcRt mo, and somehow 1 onjoy
studying thorn from mon Instonfl of from
hooka, And I Iwllovo I cAn learn no
moro of Ront(mont,of avarlco, of Rolf Rao
rllico, of dovotlon.of frailty and frivolity,
and of nobility and beauty of character
in any hook onset of lawks than I can
from personal observation among my
llmltod circle of friondR and acquaint
ances. MomborR of tho human raco
arc very dimlmiliar, and yot in two or
throo mon and womonlf not in ono
person, can Im found all tho elomonts
that havo made hiatory all tho good
and noblo traita and all tho mean and
trivial thing, in varying degree, that
are to bo found in the race. Individu
ality la cauaed by the dominance of one
aet of of idea or impulses over another.
Different thinga come to the aurtace in
different persons. But wo are all made of
tho same kind of auff, and nearly every
one of ua haa something of all the good
and bad qualities. It la tho struggle of
these different qualities for precedence,
'bringing various results, that makes tho
study of man Interesting. Wo aro aliko,
and yet very much unlike.
HoweYer.it Is not my intention to
present any psychological facta or treat
lies at this time. Simply to attempts
superficial discussion of some of my ac
quaintances and their individualities is
all that I purpose.
It wm aosM years ago that I first
made the acquaintance of Henry Jack
so. Henry's parents died when he waa
yet a child, and his strength of charac
ter waa early manifest' la his steadfast
adhereaee to the principles of morality
walofeala father hadUugkt him la his
youth, and which he still observed in
the absence of parental coercion. The
ordinary temptations of boyhood had
no attractions for him. He cleaved to
truth' like a young woman of twenty -nine
to a Last Chance, and he walked veqr
straightly in the ways of sobriety, He
never waa guilty of robbing an orchard,
or of throwing stones at a sick cat, and,
as I remember him, he t as a marvel of
goodness la his teens, and he waa conse
quently, much despised. For boys hold
nothing in such contempt as the quail
ty of so called goodness which Henry
had in huge measure,
It Henry refused to Join the other
boys in their eseapades he also refused
to lend them any assistance In getting
out of their scrapes. If there ever was
any sympathy la hU nature it was dried
.into a powder long- before he had any
opportunity to pour.lt out on his friends,
or lather his companionsfor I don't
think he ever had a real friead, aad no
plaint, however touching, .reached his
heart. He did not lie or steal or dissi
pate, not so much because his 'moral
nature revolted at these things, as be-
cause he thought their commission
indicated weakness, and weak
ness was the one unpardonable sin
in his eyes. He waa moral by calcula
tion and not by instinct. His life waa a
succession of calculations, and his ar
ithmetical processes chilled his heart and
left him almost absolutely devoid of
feeling of any sort. He was a sort of
pliable statue. His chastity and moral
ity were as the chastity and morality of
When he reached the age of twenty
one he went into business, and by the
time he waa twenty-six he had done
what the majority of men have not done
at seventy, He had made a success' of
llf.'bMlR, it the man who haa accu
mv'laiedjiliney and has an assured in
comdicfq'uB said to have made a auccess
of life' It that kind of happiness that
m related to the domestic life, and de
pendent on love aad sympathy and
friendship and human kindness, is to be
considered in estimating a man's sueeess
in life, then Henry Jackson at twenty
six had already made a dismal failure
aad one that eould not be retrieved. In
his business eareec he had had two pur
poses, te make money, and to make
people fear and respect him. This dual
ambitirn had taken entire possession of
him, and hie naturally selfish disposi
tion had besoms adamant. All of the
sap in him had bees consumed by the
Are, of greed, aad he waa left with money
k jl hispoekets, but a void in his soul.
Aaw TQtas) waa
M0m - a assnmwnMsa a rannns.
. - . i . . -
Wis atss. an sssw aaassar in test wmtamaf
for a man with a heavy bank account.
Then no man could ever Ray that ho
Rtolo from him, or tlmt ho had traiiM
greened any law. Jackson nlwnys went
to tho full limit of tho law, but ho never
sloped over, and ho could do more h)
cullar thing and filch more people and
tnako moro money, nnd nil within the
law than anybody I over know. Any
ono who know him would havo felt en
tlrely Rafo In leaving 110,000 with him
without Rocurlty. but tho Hamo perRon
would expect to bo Rklnnod nlho if ho
went Into a drill with him.
Ho could not bo called a hyMcrlte, for
ho made no pretensions, lln attended
church rcgulurly,htit ho wiir not a church
momlior, and ho alwaR miido It a Klnt
to bo absent on the (Sundays that tho
Lord'H SupjKir wiir celebrated. The
truRtecfl nlwaR received IiIr check for a
good round ruiii every quartor; but ho
novorgavo beyond a certain amount.
Once an officer of tho church nuked him
for an extra contribution for the relief
of poor fiimllicH of tho congregation.
Thifl particular officer never broached
the Rtibject to him again. Ho was glad
to got away alive. And Jackson waa
not violont; ho prided hlntRolf on IiIr
Rolf-command. Ho Just froze up until
tho trtiRteo hurt a chill.
If a now church whr to bo built or a
charity ball wiir to bo given ho would
willingly head tho Hubflcriptlon list with
a decent Hum opposite hiH name. Hut if
an employe broke his leg and was kopt
away from bustncM for two weeks IiIr
salary was cut off, and tho poor fellow,
when ho made his appearance, would
receive such a terrlblo going ovor that
ho would then and thero vow never to
break another leg ho would- Ioro his
head first. And a rlowor girl who tried
to sell him aboquotof carnations for flvo
cents, so that aho could buy broad for
her little brothor,would bo ordorod out
of hla office in a voice that would send
tho cold shivers dancing along her puny
spinal column His charity was like his
morality blocked out with geometrical
exactness. I remember on ono occasion
he loaned 11,600 to a formor employo
and took a mortgage on hla modest
homo. Tho man waa unfortunato in
business, and when tho mortgage camo
due he was unabio to 'pay. Jackson
promptly forclosod, turned tho family
out of doors, got possession of tho
property, sold it for enough to satisfy
his claim, and that very day drew his
check for $1,000 for a home for indigent
women somebody was starting.
Henry had a conscience, but it was
usually locked up with his heart and hia
bags of gold in his 'great vault. Oc
casionally he would take it out and ex
amine It, and finding a goodly list of
"charitable" deeds engraven there, and
no record of the commission of any sin he
would rub his hands with satisfaction,
and place It in the vault again. It waa
the easiest thing in the world for him to
convince himself that he was perfectly
honorable and all that a man should bo.
For he knew he had done no wrong.
Yes, he had a family. He owned' hia
wife and children as he owned hia stocks
and bonds, and he guarded them quite
as carefully. He never hung his bonds
out of the window, and .he saw no reason
why his children should play in the
atreet. At stated .intervals he would
take his bonds out of the strong box and
give them an airing, and about four
times a year he would take his wife to
the theatre, not because ho wanted to
go himself, or because ho thought she
wanted to go, but because he thought it
was the proper thing to do. His clerks
received a stated salary from him. and
Mrs. Jackson, poor soul, was placed In
the same category. And she usually
accounted for every dollar, He never
laid a strong hand on his children; nor
did they ever feel his caressing" touch:
and they feared him. Hia presence in
spired them with terror. Had anyone
accused him of unkindness to his family
Henry would have thought him craxy.
He was just) and justice, according to
hia notion, was all that aitybody could
expect. He had never struck his wife
or whipped his children, and 'he would
have said he waa never anything else
At the beginning I think Henry was
a good deal like other childron. But
something, possibly in his early parontal
training, twisted hia idoas, and growing
up under tho care of an aged relative
who allowed him to do exactly aa ho
pleased, he developed in ono direction,
and when he reached manhood one set
of ideas were rigid, and the warmer im
pulses were forever stilled. When I
knew him there was no warm blood in
him, and there waa just about the same
quantity of emotion and sentiment in
him that are to be found in the average
