It is difficult to calculate the amount of greatness one may possess by inheritance. The mantle of the illustri ous does not always fall upon the son, nor does the son always inherit his father's low estate, or meanness. Kep ler, the great astronomical calculator, whose mother could neither read or write, and whose father was keeper of a low dirty inn, immortalized his name without ancestral greatness. Some are born great, some achieve great ness and some have greatness thrust upon them, while some, born with the elements of greatness, die before the opportunity arrives for its development. Tell has Gray said of the country church-yard.
