TIIK RISE OF A TOUNO MAN t'NDKIt AIIVK1IHK
Tho following article wns written by Wil
liam Burgess, a former resident of this
com ty, for tho National City Jlceonl, Of
Incidents sometimes occur In the lino of
our experience wlileh nro wnilhy of note,
and frequently thu review of simple facts
lends fresh courago to us In meeting tho
practical duties of llfo. Iu Illustration of
tho power of tact, application nnd perse
verance, I will stato n s Inglo case, not as
the only ono In store, but as appropriate
for my present purpose.
Over thirty years ago when In charge of
a Seminary in Pennsylvania, 1 had an np.
plication for a pupil, then perhaps 10 years
of ago nr more, who desired tho advan
tages of a school moro ndvpneed than tho
district schools of tho vicinity which woro
open pcrhnp six months of the year thrco
months In tho summer and thrco months
In tho winter. His parents wen. well-to-do
larmcrs, a few miles up the valley, Indus,
trlnm, thrifty, nnd very respectable, but
adhered so rigidly to antiquated customs
that they could not tako much.stock in nn
expensive education, at least beyond what
was then aftorded by these public schools,
for many then as now would fain cut down
tho school term that moro labor could bo
exacted from the children In tho work-shop
or on tho farm. The Seminary, a boarding
nnd day school combined, for both sexes,
was well pationlzcd, however, from the
neighborhood and from dUtant localities
and our young friend, whom all called
"Llje" for short, was an ambitious young
man, and ho caught tho Inward desire for
mental Improvement nnd a bettor educa
tion. Ho obtained permission to leave
homo for n timo In pursuit of some scheme,
If he could manage the card without Incur
ring parcntnl expense. He saw an opening
and applied for the position of choio boy,
hoplug by faithful scrrlco tn work for
boird and tuition, and thus secure tho ad
vantages of tho school. The offer was
accepted, nnd "Llje" took hold of every
department with n vim. Tho stable, tho
wood yards, the fires for the family and
tho Fchnols, besides general janitor duties,
occupied his spare time, but he was nlwnys
at his post of duty,always up with his class
in school nnd never behind his comrades at
games or sport when leisure permitted.
That year's servlco probably laid the foun
dation for a life purpose. Ho was an apt
student in every grade, and gradually ad
vanced In his course of reading and study,
taking a special Interest In history, biogra
phy and n knowledge of the world in gen
eral. The time at school was too brief to
advance very far in speclnl or scientific
brniches of literature, but ho acquired the
determined purposo to educate himself af
ter gaining au Insight into tho modus ope
randi. He might not become n3 proficient
oratory us Clay, Calhoun, Webster or
hilllps, or as noted iu scieuco as Newton,
La Place, Huxley or Agasnlz ; but with
such great lights before him he could bend
his energies to the task and do something
for hlniselr, no matter whether the rc9t of
the world around him should stand still or
move onward. To do tills he must husband
his resources and improve his leisure hours,
no matter what might be his vocation for a
On leaving school ho took a position lu n
large flouring mill near by to learn the nrt,
nil tho time keeping within the reach nnd
influence of the Seminary, nnd wai an nc
tlve participant In tho Literary Society
there, open to the public, and took proml
nenco In debites. About the lime he bo
came of age, he was enabled, with the
assistance of sorao relatives or friends to
buy an interest in tho mill, and In that na
other pursuits, being Impressed with
c foiclblu adage that "whatever is worm
doing nl ull is worth doing well," he be
came a skillful miller and drew patronage
from far nnd uear.
To go back lo the school n moment, Micro
was a certain young lady in tho Normul
Department who was preparing for the
teacher's vocation, and between theso par
ties un Intimacy grew npice. The myste
rious workings of those sympathetic cords
of attraction, even If observed by others,
as it were by the twltclilngs of an electric
battery, are not nlwnys understood nor
very readily explained, but when once
charged, the current continues unless ob
structed by some Inharmonious clement.
Tho said young lady, however, Was also
ambitious Culture seemed to bo one of
her elements of character, nnd she passed
an excellent examination. Shu was soon a
ist-class teacher, and after ward taught In
tho country for u number of consecutive
terms. As kindred elements, however, will
gradually mingle unless separated by
mountain barriers, her bewitching smiles
wero too resistless for the attractive radi
ance ot the young miller's affections, and
soon by that Indescribable union of hands
and sympathy of hearts they were united
ly hymeneal bauds and swept into the
vortex of mitrimony. Those who havo not
trayeled so far may not understand, but
they may live and learu. It was a suitably
mated, nnd to ull appearances a happy
pair, well adapted to each other's wants
and necessities, nnd In scholarly gruco nnd
refinement, the young man as a ready stu
dent, received many usclul lessons In tlulr
fforts of study and mutual self-Improve
ment. Iu force nnd brilliance he, perhaps,
took the lead, but In Intellectual culture,
up to this time the medal was hers, but
they sought to equalize their burdens, uud
n Intellectual growth and power their
progress was steady und harmonious.
Tho young miller being fully aroused
and self-confident, now commenced tho
study of law. He leased his Interest
the mill, became a disciple of Uluckstonc
und foon uflor figured conspicuously as an1
attorney of much promise at the bar. Bo.
log temperate in his hubits.cool and shrewd
in Ids purchases und speculations and dili
gent In professional application, ho soon
acquired a competence, and became noted
both as a counselor and a pleader at the
bar, That youug man had stamina, pluck
ami perseverance. He permitted no sell-
ous blunders, or Haws of confidence or con
duct, to Injure his character, and if mostly
successful In his undertakings, It was be
cause he planned ahead, nnd so ndupted
means to ends that ho accomplished greater
results than many who wero not bo cool
though moro confident. Ho thus became
not only a practical nnd successful business
man, but also a useful citizen, taking part
In the progressive movements of his town
and county, and lu those public and private
enterprises calculated to build up a comma
nlty upon an Independent, growing, yet
self-supporting basis of prosperity. I often
think of that youth and some others
might name, us blight examples for the en
couragement of tho young nnd persoverlng
In the line of We'd promotions. Our fnml.
lies havo held Hie most friendly reciprocal
relations for years, nnd a recent letter from
our old friend, bearing date Juno 17, 1880,
reviews some past affairs, as it were with
pleasant recollections, and I take I ho lib
erty lo make a brief extract. After refer
ring to a recent promotion, ho says ,
1 1 am still encouraged nnd held to labor
on with renewed energy, greater skin and
graver responsibilities, and my chief dcslro
is for stronglh, fortitude, judgment and
knowlcdgo sufllclcnt to perform my dutica
and well. And whllo I feel and know that
my Held cf labor is unite different from
what it has been lu tho past, yet I hopo I

Tho following Interesting letters from Dr.
James B. Ncal nnd wife, who aro In China,
wero received by friends hero recently i
Piiizkko, 215 Miles N. W. ofCiiefoo,
Tuesday Morning, March 13, 1880.
As 1 have n quiet hour this morning, 1
want to resume my regular weekly home
loiters, by telling you of my trip out here,
1 having arrived at my Journey's end only
As you doubtless know, I left Chcfoo two
weeks ago yesterday morning, In company
with n Mr. Btooke, u recently nrrlvcd mem
ber ot the China Inland Mission, In order
to tiring out 13,000 taels of silver for uso In
famine relief. Wo cncli had n cart, with
about half tho silver In each aud kept close
together nil tho time, being accompanied
by four soldiers armed with muskets nnd
under the command of a small ofllccr. We'
usually started as soon nftcr daylight as
possible, and avoided traveling late Inlo
the night ns a precaution for safety. I nl.
ways kept tho silver in the room with mo
nt nieht and slept wllh a loaded revolver nt
my head, tho soldiers not being fur away.
It was very interesting to Lil'ie and me to
notice tho system of changing horses which
prevails here In going from Chcfoo to
Wei Hleu, by the great road, you pass
through parts of tlx counties or Hleu, nud
each of these Illcn had to furnish a change
of horses to our escort. In speaking of tho
Hlen heretofore I have usually referred to
them as corresponding to our townships,
but tho moro I think of It tho moro I feel
they should moro properly bo called coun
tlc, for tho principal town in each Hlen Is
a large walled city corresponding In somo
degree to our county scat, being tho rcsl
dcn"o of the principal magistrate of the
whole district, which is much larger In area
than our small townships, nnd much moro
important. Tho village, perhaps, might bo
eaidti correspond to our township as it
lias no organization of Its own. We really
have nothing to correspond to a "fu" or
prefecture, unless n congressional district
might bo said to do so.
Well, to return to the horses, each timo
we camo to a Hlen the olllocr lu chargo of
our escort hud to send to thu yamen and
await a change of horses, nnd lu case wc
were to spend a night inside tho walls, a
special guard was sent to watch over our
safely. Sometimes, too, tho magistrate sent
a couple of runners to awcll our escort up
lo tho next atagc, though not always, some
times sending only u hostler to take back
the horses. This arrangement wns not a
special one for this occasion only, but is
constantly In force for the transmission of
messages between the various yamena.
Once on tho great road wo did not pass
near the Hlen city but only across ono cor
nor of tho county, but we found a horse
stable established on the road and changed
horses ns U9unl, no ono officer sending his
horses ucross tho territory of another.
When wo left tho great western road ut
Wei Hlen und slructoff toward this famine
region, wo ulwnys had to go to a Hlen city
to chango horses, even though It took us
out of our way as it did onco or twice. Wc
had a very comfortable journey out, lludlng
It pretty cold tor a couple of days but after
that quite bearable. Wo reached Wcl Hicn
Saturday eveniug, expecting to spend Sun
day, but on receipt ot letters from Air.
Laughlin, urging the speedy sending of
money for tho starving people, Mr. Stooke
and I got out our carts again and traveled
10 miles on Sunday afternoon, leaving Llllle
to follow In company with Mr. Frnul; Glial
funt on Wednesday. After n tedious trip
of three days wo reached this station on
Wednesday afternoon and delivered half
our silver to Mr. Laughlin for the uso of
the Presbyterian distributors, and also 1S00
tnels for uso of the English Biptists ho
adjoin us on tho west. The next morning
we divided our escort, Mr. Laughlin nnd
Mr. Siooke taking two soldiers with them
to carry a lot of silver to a city somo twenty
miles uway, und I having two soldiers and
the officer to go with me to Cnlngchowfoo,
two days' journey distant, Thursday morn
ing I started oil In a slnglo cart and reach
ed Chlngchowfoo Friday evening about
dark without mishap, whero I delivered the
remaining 5,000 taels to tho English Bap
'Ut Mission, Here I dismissed my escor t,
and after a night spent nt Mr. Forsyth's
started back at daylight Saturday morning ,
hoping to be able to reach here, whero I
hud agreed to meet Llllle, some tlmu dur
ing Saturday night. But alas for my pleas
lire, I got up in the morning lo llnd it drlz
'.Hug und miserably raw aud cold. How
ever I started, hoping wo might be able to
pull through the 140 II before midnight
Outside the city walls wo found the wind
blowing a gulu from thu northeast which
made it very disagreeable traveling. After
struggling along until 3 o'clock It began t
snow, uud tho wind increased to almost a
hurricane bo that 1 thought It too bud to
ask the carter, who had to sit outside, to
drive, uny further, so ordered him to turn
into thu first Inn he camo to ; unfoitunatily
that proved to Uo a Utllo bit of a country
placf , wllh great cracks in the doors of the
room I occupied, nnd in general most
cheeileas aud desolutu. Never were my
Babbath Jtecpuig principles put to so haul
a test ns when 1 turned into that wretched
place, 00 11 from where Lllllo was to spend
Sunday It was uo cold I stayed in bed
Sunday morning until nearly 11 o'clock to
keep warm and also to get rested, 119 I had
been up long before daylight every morn
lug except Suuday for two weeks.
I got through my breakfast and devotion,
visitors began to come in and I had a
chanco to do a littlo talking in n religious
way. This, with a walk und my eating nnd
reading, managed to use up the day which
was a very raw cold ono and by half past
seven I was again In bed.
Monday morning I got up to find It fpit
ting snow nnd thu further wo went tho
worse it became until It proved one of the
hardest storms of the scusoa, My carter,
however, persevered aud by halt past two
in thu afternoon landed here to llnd Lllllo
all alone, Air. and Airs Laughlin being
away at 11 stailoti 2.1 11 distant. They ill
nut get hick until Tuosday morning so wo
had a nice quiet timo together and 1 had a
chance tn take a much needed bah,
To day, Wrduesnay, Lllllo und I got to u
place called Shungkla Tnnko, 35 11 from
here, I to assist Dr, Hunter In Ids relic!
work and Lllllo to work among the womeu
Mr. Laughll'i has now ou Ids list about 100
villages including about 20,000 peoplo who
are receiving ono cent each por day, Not
all tho persons in a villain aro enrolled, but
only those needing help very badly. Dr.
Hunter is enrolling 10,000, making 30,000

tists are working up to the sahlu number so
ns to mako 00,090 In nil. If tho contrlbu
lions warrant It, this total number Is to bo
further Increased to 100,000. Wo nro great

aro unrelieved. As I h ive been hern so
short n timo I can give few details of the
stato of affairs, but I shall write moro fully
Dr. Hunter expects to go back to Wcl
Hlen In n counlc of weeks nud I presume
wc ehnll then take chnrg' of his work. Wo
found when wo got hero that tho station
which we had been expected to open, lind
already been begun by Dr. Hunter, so It
wns unnecessary for us to begin another.
Wo are looking for Dr. nnd Airs. Alattcer

I wish I could picture to
you some of tho scenes I Sec from day to
day lu my village visiting nn1' yet they
would only harrow your feelings. Old men
and old women worn away to shadows of
their former selves or, In the last stages of
starvation, swollen so much as to be almost
past recognition : llltlo children In arms
almost Invariably very, very thin and wnn
I. okingj half grown 'children, wenk and
colorless and so worn looking ns to tell
their tale of utter misery without a word,
aud faces generally on men and women
that need months of privation and hnrd
ship to bring to them the famished look
they have. A passing look at the faces of
a family almost always gives a pretty cor
rect idea of tho depth of their poverty.
Then they tell you how this ones' baby,
that ones' father or mother, this man's wlfo
and daughter, that woman's only son or
lur two or three little children have starved
to death ; how so and so sold his Utile girl
or boy to mako sure of their having some
thing to eat, nnd so that tho money might
provide for his other children for n month
to come j how another mau'a wlfo hung
herself to get away from the sight of her
hungry, famishing babies, (one door keep
er's wlfo nto arsenic because sho couldn't
bear to sec her children suffer so,) how still
another man has taken all he has left of his
tamlly and lied in the hope of being able to
reach a land where ho can get work or
plant his grain where there la less fear of
It3 lulnf m'.acd before harvcat time, and
th -j will show you the deserted house with
Its locked door and a9k you to peer into
tho window and sec the colUIn there with
the unburicd starved mother or father In it,
and on your way you aco a man pulling
lowu his hou9o, nnd nsk him why he is
doing It, he'll tell you to sell the timber so
as to buy something for tho little ones to
eat always tho samo reason, for some
thing to appease this eyer recurring, knaw
Ing, hunger, or ns they express It, "to paste
these Hps shut." Of all, tho littlo babies
look tho very worst : it would wring your
mother heart to seo tho littlo skeleton like
Indica and hear tho weak hungry cry and
to watch them ns they try to swallow tho
n ess of clulT, roots,bark of trees and grass
mixed together and mado into a cake,
(which is what tho peoplo arc mostly living
on now,) that their mother's chow up and
put Into their gaping littlo mouths.

you could see tho energy, nromptltudo aud

on this good work, not sparing himself any
weariness or hardship in furthering his
