number of person who are positively ;
coining money from their profession.
There are sovoral professors in New
York overrun with pupils who wish to
improve defective memories and who
aro willing to pay the person who will
supply tho method. Each of theso
professora has a system of his own,
and each of them savagely insist that
his is tho only suro system.
Phil Armour, the great Chicago pork
packer, is said to have remarked that
a good memory is nocessary to ono
who wishes to succeed. This is, pur-
haps, a trifle strong and yot there is (
no lack of evidence to support the
statement. Armour, himself, is an ex-
ample of what a good momory can do. .
Ue is as wonderful in his time as Car- '
dinal Mezzofantl was in his. Ho is j
said to carry tho smallest detail of hi '
immense business in his head, lie
can remember the dato as well as tho .
sum of small business transactions. ;
Ho knows tho names of pretty nearly j
all of his army of employes. After tho
building of the addition to his great j
establishment in t Chicago he aston-
bhod a circle of friends by rattling off-1
hand the number of bricks, car-loads
of sand, feet of Umber, etc., etc, that
used in the construction. Ar- J

never cultivated it, but the demands
of his business have unquestionably

is another man gifted with an extraor-,
dinary memory. Ho needs no books
to carry his transactions in, although,
of course, ho uses them. With him,
too, retontiveness is a natural gift Ho
remembers every thing that he wants
to remember, but says frankly he
doesn't know how he docs it H. also
possesses tho gift of not remembering
things he doos not wish to remember.
But then that gift is not rare.
In another line of business is John
Stetson, the famous theatrical man

Congressman Sam Cox has also a
retuarkablo memory, especinllv for
things litorary, and this has stood him
in good stead in debate in Congress,
for his oppononts never know when
the genial jester is about to double
them up with pomothing from

is his memory and his wise study that
enable him to successfully compete in

charged that his memory trips some
times. In tho fishery debate last win
ter he ran in this queer verse:
Ye tconsters of the briny deep.
Your Matter's name upraise;

Some one interested in tho verse
looked it up and found it in an old
English hymn-book, but insisted that
the following was tho correct copy:
Ye montters of the briny deep,
Yuur Matter's praisos shout.
Up from the sands ye (rollings creep.

These men frankly admit that a good
memory is invaluable.
Among actors a rotcntivo momory
is necessary or a "good study." as
the veteran assistant secretary of the
Actors' Fund, Ben Baker, has it. But
it is not so necessary now in tho time
of combination, when tho samo com-
pany plays the samo piece for a sea
son. In tho old days of stock com
panies when it was common to pre
sent a farce, a comedy and a tragedy
all in one night, and to change the
bill nightly, a good memory was an
absoluto necessity. No actor can suc-

man, who does a large business, and
who has never adopted tho check sys

men. He relies entirely upon his

He claims to havo no private mark,
