Great Men with Great Hearts

Speaking of the moral and kindly aspects of the late Ex-President Harrison's nature, Mr. Ferdinand Cowle Iglehart writes as follows, in a late number of Success.

I once went from New York to Washington to request President Harrison to appoint a friend to an important judicial office, for life. The President received me kindly, and, after I had made a statement of facts in behalf of my friend, he said: "That appointment has given me more trouble of mind than any other in my gift, not excepting memberships in my cabinet. At least a dozen good men are urged for the position. I have narrowed the list down to two men,—the one in whose interest you have come, and another from the northern part of the state. It is the choice between these two men that has troubled me. Both have brilliant minds, both are able lawyers, both are men of the highest integrity, both are intimate personal friends, and both have rendered signal service in the campaign. I have taken the matter to bed with me, and have lost more than one hour's sleep over it."
