people spend all their life look- Ing for the place in this world which they were intended to fill They never settle down to anything with restful or contented feeling What they are do- Ing now Is not by any means the work that is suited to their abilities They have a sunny ideal of a very noble life which they would like to reach In which their powers would find free scope and where they could make a very brlgjit record But in their present position they cannot do much of anything and there Is little use to try Their life Is a humdrum and prosy routine and they can accomplish nothing really worthy and beautiful So they go on discontented with their own lot and sighing for another and while they sigh the years glide away and soon they will come to the end to find they have missed every opportunity of doing any thing worthy of an Immortal being in the passage to eternity The truth is ones vocation is never some faroff possibility It Is always the simple round of duties that the passing hour brings No day Is commonplace If we only had eyes to see Its splendor There is no duty that cornea to our hand but brings to us the possibility of kingly service Christian Work J THE RIGHT

themselves hindered and impeded In their way by obstacles that arise within themselves learn through love to obey But unless one has learned to say Not what I will but what Thou wilt unless one has

in association with his friend E C Benedict the banker a story to the other extreme is new going the rounds to the effect that his income is nly5JOOO a year The truth is that Mr Cleve lands ircome from his investments is between 8000 and 10000 to which he adds an average of about 3000 by writing occasional essays for publication He might have acquired a larger fortune doubtless but for the fact that he would permit his bankers to buy or sell stocks on margins Mr Benedict however makes his few investments and they are generally wise ones Some years ago Mr Cleveland had 5000 to spare and Mr Bene dict obtained for him the right which he availed himself of to sub scribe to the stock of a projected trust company The knowledge that the former president was to be come one of their shareholders in spired the promoters with a brilliant idea After consultation they sought Mr Benedict and through him offered Mr Clevelend the presidency of the company at a sal ary of 550000 a year It was a legitimate undertaking backed by reputable men but Mr Cleveland somewhat reluctantly declined on the ground that he was unacquainted with the details of the business and that the condition of his health would not permit of the severe ap plication requisite to effective ser viceAgain he was urged to accept with the assurance that his dutieI esaiiconnection with the company bein considered sufficient recompense for his remuneration Mr Cleveland replied simply that that would seem to him too much like selling the use of his name which of course he could not do That closed the incident Harpers Weekly uVe beg your majesty to lorgive that we have been unable to do moreThis is the closing paragraph of Sergius Witts cablegram to theCzar announcing peace There you have the European idea the sickening servility that goes with a monarchy the selfabnegation that is born of the alleged divine right of KingsThe bows to the toadThe Giant kneels to the PigmyThe Mon tains beg forgiveness of the Molehill As between Sergius Witte and the Emperor of the Russias there can be no comparison The first is a man virulentbristling blooddbrainy lie cold lead an army or regenerate a nation On a throne or in a Presidents chair he could make glad a country where he would welcome enlightenment liberty and force progress On the other hind is a broken reed a Czar who looks insignificant acts insignificant and is insignificant strip off his imperial robes get down to the heart of it and the thing that would be left would have less strength and ability less real manho od than the man who vends shoe lac es and collars buttons on the coner Russia as a nation was not builded by men of the caliber of Nicholas His predecessors were often tyrants and torturersThey had the bloodlust and they ruled by fear but they real ly ruled for they were men It is a pity that Sergius Witte who debased himself before the Czar and who must have seen the sarcas tic humor or that telegram couldnt replace Nicholas on ihe throne and lead Russia to the prestige and mig ht the should belong to an empire aIt may te that theuhigh price of leather has something to do with Mr llockiifellcrgoihg about in his

Panama sat in his office recently and talked for a time about that spot upon which so many interests are at present fixed He knew the Isthmus well He was quite as much at home upon the plaza of old Panama City or upoa the quay at Colon as he is on Broadway la Manhattan He has known the residents of the volatile little Land of Great Promises ash well and assuredly understands their freaks and foibles It was upon thoi characteristics of the folk of that land that he laid the greatest emphasis reports the Brooklyn Eagle 1 They are not a bad people said hoi eattlelmpul1stvely the leaders that are given them They have been the objects of very great misunderstanding You see In the first In stance they have not what New Yorkers demand personal liberty The laws that guarantee them personal liberty are apt to be repealed at any moment and they are powerless to protest As a matter of fact Colombia as well as almost all of the South and Central American republics Is more of a despotism than Russia herself Nominally they are republics and they are recognized by the United States as such but In reality they are something different The great mass of the population Is Ignorant as a soulrhypadrones absolutely control the country Upon the isthmus they are absolutely and to aunit In favor of the present rove lution The Colombian government hasj been growing leech erous and

stable and on a firm foundation 3 Just think of the way that the Istlj mus has been governed even before the treaty was rejected It took from two to three weeks under the most favorable conditions to reach the capital at Bogota from Panama The Journey is unusually hazardous and dangerous The postal and telegraph service are similarly in pfHcfeut and sometimes for reasons best known at the Bogota
