How Some of Our Famous
People Got Their Start in
How some men have succeeded
in life to whom not a single cir-
cumstance was kind ? How often
we hear people say of some worth-
less follow: “Ah, well, he never
had half a chance! ” But there
are plenty of boys who have come
to the front in life’s battle who
never had even a quarter of a
chance. *, -
Take Thomas Ball, the sculptor,
for instance. lie was but 12years j
old when his father died. The j
poor widow—Thomas’ mother, j
young herself and far from strong, i
had five children. There was no
more school for Thomas after his
father’s death. Ho must go to
work and help support the rest.
He got a place in a grocery store,
where they gave him $1 a week.
Not much that—but what a dif-
ference it made to the poor little
From the time he was 12 young
Ball had always to work for the
others, until they were all grown
IIo had little instruction, even
in his art, and he never had that '
little until after he had earned the
money to pay for it,
although she might not wash her
face once in a week her front hair
had to be looked after every day,
and she wore a headdress of bead-
ed crape with a frill of little spiral
curls running across her forehead
from ear to ear that kept in curl,
but caught fluff, feathers and any
dust that was flying.

Then there was that other sculpt-
or, Hiram Powers. Hiram was
the eighth of nine children, and
he was a very small boy when his
father died; and like Ball, he had
to go to work for the family. He
had been born in Vermont, but
his parents had moved out to
Ohio in that way poor people have
of roaming hither , and yon after
It was in Ohio that the father
died, and in Ohio that Hiram
fought hi6 youthful battle. For
seven years he had charge of the
wax figures in a Cincinnati museum
and it was while there that he felt
an impulse toward his future art,
and tried his prentice hand at
modeling in clay.
But not until he was 30 years
old was he permitted to strike out
for himself, aud he was 32 before
he had money enough to go to It-
aly. Yet he was to be sculptor
of the Greek Slave.
Peter Cooper, who founded the
Cooper institute, had a still harder
struggle, because, as a boy, his
health was the frailest. He went
to school but one year of his life, .
and during that year he could on- ,
ly go every other day. But when ■
he was five years old ho was earn-
ing his living by pulling hair from '
the skins of rabbits hie father shot
to make hat pulp.
He had not “half a chauce.”
It seemed almost literally that he ’
had no chance at all. He went to 1

old to make his fortune. He walk- (

Heavily tolled at every station
along the line of change, it were
for better to tithe substance for
tribute than peril his all in the
whirl of the “pool” where the
conscientious and unwary are
victimized by the managers. But
the experience of the alliance iu
individual States seems to count
for nothing when the proposition
comes for the united action of
many States and a general com-
bine to force the wopld to pay
higher prices for its living. The
present scheme to unite wheat
producers, in all the wheat grow-
ing States, iu one grand combine
to hold back their grain till hun-
ger simll be compelled to pay
higher prices for bread, looks
v ery pretty in theory, but it lias

litical economy to encourage it.
