Why Foroienors Succeed.
A correspondent writes The Herald
asking: "Wliy i it Unit younr, foreigners
coming to this country can filivuy get
plaecHimd keep tliem, and go right a1u::il,
unl in a few years bo in busineha for
themselves with money ahead, eyen be
fore they have learned to speak the Eng
lish language?"
The question is an important one and
opens up a vast field for inquiry and in
terest, but to the business man its solution
is very plain. The fault does not lie
with prejudice or preference of employ
ers, but as humiliating as is the confess
ion, in the superiority of the foreign
youth. Not from a point of intelligence
or piicku!:ss,but from the point of fideli
ty, faithfulness, obedience, and applica
tion, the indispensable requirements to
eucecs in a much larger degree than
education, brilliancy, good looks, or fine
clothes.
It is one of the wise dispensations of
the Creator that those who succeed in
life should first learn the drudgery, the
toil, and the minor and menial de
tails of the business they choose before
they can erect the superstructure and
command the rewards and the comforts
of that business. Without this prelimi
nary knowledge success is impossible as
the permanence of a building without a
foundation. Nature teaches these lessons
in everything, the blade of grass or the
car of corn cannot be produced
without the seed is first planted; the
worm can never become a buiterfly with
out undergoing the toil and drudgery of
first gathering the material and weaving
the cocoon. The child can never become
the upright, stalwart being of power, force
and locomotion without first learning to
crawl. It is the mistaken idea'of Amer
ican parents which leads them in their
affection and pride to recognize the su
perior natural endowments of their off
spring, and endeavor to rear their chil
dren to enjoy its blessings w ithout under
going the dreary drudgery of its develop
ment which makes so many wrecks along
life's path. The youth who enters life's
arena and the business world with the
idea that he is too good to clean a spit
toon, sweep out an office or perspire over
the locomotion necessary to deliver a
message with promptness or haste, who
is afraid to soil the blacking on his shoe
by wading in the mud or to get wet In
going out into the rain, is not likely to
become a very brilliant star in the world's
arena.
Who would win must fight, and life's
struggle is after all, a long and arudous
battle whose success is not to be found
iu the theater, the circus, the ball room,
the saloon, or the billiard hall; brilliancy
nnd popularity do not consist in flourish
ing a cane, smoking cigarettes, drinking
wine, attending horse races and fairs,
wearing line clothes and learning to ogl
the opposite sex before the clout clothes
nre fairly off. This fact is unfortunately
better realized by the people of the older
countries than it is by Americans. As a
consequence when a foreign youth is em
ployed, no matter how dull his wits Ik
manages to get along simply because Ik
oncentratcs what wit and power lm Ins
to the performance of the duty assigned
him. Neither his dignity, his case, his
fine clothes, his ability for belter things
or his aristocratic origin are allowed to
divert his thoughts or his mind from
that duty, or to offend his senses because
of his menial nature. 'hen he is sent
on an errand he neither forgets it nor
tarries on the way. When his labor is
over he is hungry enough to crave whole
some food and tired enough to go to
bed anil rest, consequently he does not
expend his money for bonbons, or upon
wine, or beer, or women. The result is that
he gets a reputation for reliability and
efficiency, which soon elevates him. He
lias quickly mastered the menial prelimi
naries, and rises by force in the scale, nnd
os time passes he not only acquires a
knowledge of his business in all its de
tails, but before h -. knows it, almost, he
lias sufficient capital, reputation and
friends to enable him to beirin business
for himself.
If American boys would su reed they
should take these tilings to heart and not
be aboye imitating their huniMtr aud
less brilliant forciuu neighbor. Omaha

Cowardly Independence.
There are individuals iu charge
of
3ews-papers, nnd more of them than are
.-required for the healthful press, who feel
that in order to assert and maintain
their independence they must print
-whatever they see and hear, particular
ly scandal. This view lnis more justi
fication from the standpoint of the re
porter than from tlie standpoint of the
editor. The editor is expected to exer
cise his judgment, to discriminate in
the choice of matter, to cut out and add
to in fact, to edit the paper. He should
perform his work in t he interest of his
nnner. and then fore in the interest of
the paper's readers. The man who uu-
dcrtakes to edit a newspawcr nnd at the
same time keep himself free of ull mis
trust and misrepresentation will make a
signal failure of it. He must be capable
of fixing his own standards, and of
making his own judgments promptly as
the case- arises. A good paper cannot be
made under a set of rules, for nny good
rule in tint have its exceptions and the
good editor mu-t be equipped to appre
ciate the exception and govern himself
according as occasion may Wo presented.
Independence in the occupation of put
ting together a newspaper is a highly
desira'ole quality, bnt in the family of
independence is a species that is vulgar,
woefully coarse, unkind and of eyil
tendencies altogether. If one cannot
suppress this variety and keep company
with discriminating independence, then,
for one thing, it is better to give over
being independent, and, for another
thi ng, to give ovcrtrying to be an editor.
Tho intelligent editor will suppress many
items "on account of the family" that
otherwise he would print. The culprit
in the case may not be entitled to consid
eration, but there nny be women and
children involved who are. And there
is great difference in families. Some are
made of coarse material, and others are
of fine material, and where' no hardship
would bo done in one case there would
be savage cruelty in another. Of course
the editor will be charged with discrimi
nation. It will be tauntingly Haid that
in the one case there was wealth or social
influence, while in the ether there was
only poverty and the lack of social in
fluence. But he cannot help that. He
ought not to try to help it except as
he shall exercise his best judgment as to
what is right, what is mainly, what is in
dependent from the standpoint of his
own conscience. The newspaper that
gives the more pain than joy is .a poor
newspaper from any point of view.
Such a newspaper, you may be sure, will
have its strength where vice is strong,
and it will have its friendships where
hearts are trodden under foot. T'
good editor should try first to place
maintain himself in the i elation of a
gent!e:n-in. Tf- n-:,t fhon -k. r" Train
from speaking, or t,a.tl- iiij spv-i, iioiii
that standard. It is highly creditable to
insist upon the independance of a gent
leman. It is quite as discreditable to
insist upon the independence of a curb
stone loafer or the police-court lounger.
The reaping tastes of people have wide
range. The newspaper must necessarily
be of wide range; but when it comes to
an issue between what is for good and
what is for evil, the editor ought to be
equipped w ith that kind of independence
that will lead him to prefer that which
is for good, He may be often mistaken
in his judgment. But his own confidence
in his purpose should be kept above re
proach. Sham indnpendence is thejbane
of many newspapers, and under its in
spiration much journalistic villany is
wrought. Siitnx Cltji Journal.
The custom which prevails in this
country of celebrating all the great steps
toward freedom and the establishing of
our government, made by our fore-fathers,
on their various anniversaries, is a
most beautiful oue. Yesterday hundreds
of thousands of people from all over the
United States met at Philadelphia to
give strength to their patriotism by join
ing in the centennial of the completion of
the federal constitution. The occasion
called out the first men of the land who
joined their rejoicings in the progress
which has been made by our nation in
one-hundred years. The celebration of
these anniversaries is food to the Ameri
can's pat riotism, and as the memory of the
vents is the mother of the brotherly and
national love which is so strong in the
hearts of the Americana. Tliey are oc
casions when all partisan feeling gives
way to common rejoicing and are indis

THE TRICK BY WHICH A CROWD
WERE GATHERED TOGETHER.
A. Knot of Gazers at f Show Window.
"Just for Fun" Looking Intently Into
a Sewer llldlc-ulous llesults Unmau
Weakncai,
Queer it Is that human being, 1'ke
sheep, often bear out the saying of "Fol
low the ealer." This thought came to
mo a few days since while watching a test
maile by u friend of mine. Happening to
meet a young man whom I had not Keen
in a long while, I stopped to greet him
and indulge in a short conversation.
While we were talking a man walked up
to a show window near by, and in a mo
ment was joined by several others. In a
short time the entire window was sur
rounded by anxious gazers, and as there
was nothing out of common on exhibition,
toth myself aud my friend were amused
at the action of the crowd.
Turning to inc my friend said: "It docs
seem odd that people can be attracted bo
easily, but I assure you that I can givo
you even a better illustration than tho
one we have just witnessed. There is
nothing ut all the matter with tho sewer
inlet over at the corner, yet if I go over
and look into it intently it will bo only a
little while before I attract a crowd. Now,
just for the fun of tho thing I'm going
over and look into it, ami I want you to
stand hero and watch the people." Ac
cordingly ho walked over to the opposite
corner, and standing In the street bent
down and looked into tho sewer. Scarcely
had he fixed his gaze on the inside when
n small boy who was passing stopped and
looked around and then stepped out into
the street and also looked into the inlefi
A street car stopped at the corner to let
off several passengers, and two of them
walked up to tho inlet to look in. In less
than one minute by actual count ten per
sons were looking. into tho place, and in
two minutes the crowd had increased to
twenty-five people. In three minutes tho
crowd was doubled, and after five min
utes' actual time the entire corner was
crowded with a pushing mas3 of human
ity, all eager to look down the sewer and
all asking questions.
During this time my friend had not ut
tered a word, but had continued to gazo
steadily into the inlet as though ho had
dropped something down into its dark in
terior. Then I walked across the street
to mingle with the crowd and catch any
observations that might be made. A tall,
sad looking man tapped me on tho shoul
der and asked me what the trouble was
l i.bout. I replied that I didn't know,
but scarcely had I uttered the words
hen a short, fussy individual, who had
ju.-i. jouiea the crowd, Kindly spoke up
and informed my sad locking inquirer
that tl re was a child in the sewer. Thi3
information quickly spread and many ex
clamations of pity and sympathy were
heard on all sides. Then some one con
tradicted the rumor and said it was a val
uable dog that had fallen into the sewer.
This was promptly denied by a heavily
built man, in his shirt sleeves, who
was suro ho had heard the baby's voice,
but that it must be drowned by this time,
because it was so quiet. Right here some
one else tooK up the conversation and
went on to describe how careless the
mother of a child must be to allow it to
get away from her and run tho risk of
meeting with such a horrible death. In
the meantime a reserve officer made his
appearance and r.sked the cause of all the
trouble. A very knowing young man took
the policeman aside and explained to him
that the crowd was all wrong. Then he
wnt on to tell the officer that the man at
the sewer had been counting a roll of bills
and had accidentally dropped a bill of
large denomination into the sewer and was
now looking down to see if he could get a
glimpso of it.
iou can readily imagine how ridiculous
this i ll sounded to me, and what an ef-'
fort is required on my part to keep from
laughing aloud. I managed to restrain
myself, however, and worked my way out
of the crowd and took up a position on
the doorstep of a store near by. Tho
crowd meanwhile had grown to an im
mense size, and several cars were blocked
by tho people standing in the street across
the track. In vain the drivers tried to get
tho crowd to separate and allow the cars
to pass, but, as is generally the case, the
crowd only laughed at them, aud some of
the more venturesome boys tried to climb
onto the dasher of the car to obtain a
good view over tho heads of the persons
in front of them. Then came a regular
stream of questions from the crowd,
such as, ""What's the matter?" "How
did it happen?" "Who's hurt?" "What's
lost?" '-eomebody got a fit?" "How
did he get run over?" "What is it,
a man or h woman?" "Why don't the
crowd keep back and give him some air?"
to which the following were tome of
the answers: "Don't know," "Give it
up," "Can't get near to find out," "I
don't know, do you think I'm a diction
ary?" and many other answers that I
have now forgotten. The policeman did
his best to disperse the crowd, or at least
keep them back, but he was powerless.
He threatened a few of them with arrest,
but Lc didn't look very stern, so they
risked his anger. Finding that he could
make no impression upon them, he wisely
withdrew and allowed them to use their
own pleasure about going. He succeeded,
however, in clearing tho car track, and
the several cars that had been blocked
were soon skimming up the street at a
genuine rapid transit speed.
My friend finally worked his way out of
the crowd, and I, having attracted his at
tention, he joined me, and we laughed to
our heart's content. I imagined that
after seeing my friend withdraw the
crowd would disperse, but nothing of the
kind. The place that he left was eagerly
sought after by twenty people, and a dozen
heads pressed forward to peer into the
sewer. Some old fellow with an iron bar
had succeeded in lifting back the heavy
iron lid that fitted into the top of tho in
let, and he was lying fiat on the pave
ment, face downward, anxiously scanning
tho interior of the sewer. We stood
aside for a little while commenting
on the weakness of human nature,
and presently withdrew into the
inviting splendor of a neighboring
restaurant, where we discussed the inci
dent with much laughter over a good din
ner and a bottle of water. Strange
as my article of today may Beem, it is en
tirely true, and in every point the story is
correct. I stopped today, and, seeing tho
same reserve officer on duty at the corner,
I recalled tho experience to him, and ha
recollected the occurrence with a smile.
When I explained to him that the whole
affair was a trick of my friend, he laughed
heartily, and said he would repeat it at
headquarters. You see now how, like
sheep, we are often tempted to do some
thing simply because some one else does
it, when with a little thouaht many a
foolish or an uncalled for action might lx;
prevented. "Observer" in Phila. CalL

A STRANGE AFFECTION.
The Stery Told by m TrstvsteiwJEffectS of
Imagination.
Tho modern town of Taranto, In Italy,
occupiea tho cite of tho famous Tarcntum
of old. Tho tarantismo, an Insect ven
omous in hot weather, la to bo found
there, and Tarious startling accounts nro
given of tho peculiar effects of its bites.
A Tarentino gentleman, who has seen
many cases of persons affected by tho
tarantismo, thus describes it in tho "Ital
ian Sketches" of Janet Ross:
"There are various species of tho infect,
and two kinds of tarantismo, the wet and
tho dry. A violent fover attacks tho per
son bitten, who sits moaning and sway
ing backward and forward. Musicians
aro called and Ix-gin playing; if tho air
does not strike tho fancy of tho tarantula,
as tho pationt is called, die moans moro
loudly and says: 'No, no, not that!'
"Tho fiddler instantly changeH, and tho
taml)Ourino beats fast and furious, to in
dicate the difTerenco of the time. When
at last tho tarantola gets an air to her
liking sho springs up and begins to danco
frantically.
"If sho has the dry tarantismo her
friends try to find out tho color of tho
tarantola that has bitten her, and adorn
her dress and her fingers with ribbons
that recall the lints of tho insect. If no
ono can indicato tho color sho is decked
with streamers of every hue, which ilut
ter wildly about as sho dances and tosses
her arms in tho air. Tho ceremony gen
erally begins in the house, but what with
tho heat and tho concourse of peoplo it
often ends in tho street.
"If it is a wet tarantismo the musi
cians choose a spot near a well, and tho
dancer is incessantly deluged with water
by relays of friends, who go backward
and forward to the well with their brow
earthenware jars.
"When tho tarantola is quito worn out
she is undressed and put to bed.
"The fever lasts soventy-two hours,
and the state of nervous excitement must
bo intense to sustain a woman under such
fatigue as dancing for threo wholo days.
If tho musicians are not called in, and
tho person bitten is not induced to dance,
the fever continues indefinitely, and is in
some cases followed by death."
It is hardly necessary to say that in
this method of treatment the imagination
plaj's a great part; nevertheless it Li a
real euro. Youth's Companion.
Indian Kullcit In Georgia.
The whole field for acres around the
bridge over Little river, in Wilkes county,
Ga., is literally covered with Hint mrow
mid sjear heads, stone tomahawks, maces,
battle axes, and almost every instrument
of crude Indian warfare. Besides these
are found many domestic articles, as
mortars and pestles for mashing corn, xLs
hewn out of solid stone, and broken vases
carved in rare and curious designs. These
relics were washed down from a neigh
boring hill by the late freshet and scat
tered over the field. On the top of this
hill, where the villago w as supposed to
have been, was found a large pile of
broken and defective arrow heads which
seemed to mark the siot w here some old
arrow maker had his shop, making arrows
for his tribo and receiving in return deer,
bear, and other such game as thu forest
afforded. Chicago News.

The Bones of Columbus.
The bones of the discoverer of America
are to be once more removed, as if they
had not yet earned rest. When Colum
bus died he first found a resting placo at
ValladoliJ. But it waa not for long. In
seven years his remains were taken to
Seville, and in 1530 across the ocean to
Hayti, where they were deposited in the
cathedral of San Domingo. In 1TS5 it
was thought to be high time that the
bone3 of Columbus were disturbed again,
and they were taken to Havana, La Cuba.
Now, after a further rest of 100 years, a
fresh transfer let us hope the last is to
bo made, and Genoa, tho navigator's
birthplace, will finally claim its own.

lllttcn by a Centipede.
A well known lady of Albuquerque
was picking blackberries in her garden
when she felt something bito her on the
right side ( f her neck just below the ear.
Sho quickly put her right hand tip to the
place, when a centipede curled itself
around her forefinger. She immediately
brushed it o'u with her other hand, and,
strange to relate, did not faint, nor scream,
nor frighten her husband, nor daughter,
nor any one else by calling to them, but
ran into the house, and finding tho
ammonia bottle empty, took a big knife
and stu.k the blade into the fire in ths
stove until it got hot, when she applied it
to the wound. Next sho took some soda
and applied that, fastening it by wrap
ping a cloth around her neck. By this
time her neck began to swell, and she
says sho felt as though the top of her
head was about to secede, and closed her
teeth tightly to make sure that her head
was not gone. In a short tune she felt
greatly relieved and then informed her
daughter. She did not even call for a
doctor, but she has procured another sup
ply of ammonia. Though it occurred
several days ago, the wound now looks
as if an ant had bitten her. That lady
would keep her presence of mind in a fire
