A QUARTER OF AN HOUR EARLIER.  A man is found occasionally whose views are beyond his time, but only to such an extent that he anticipates the common views of the next decade.  He possesses public opinion before it is public; that is, he has fallen into the arms of a view that deserves to be trivial a quarter of an hour sooner than other people.  But his fame is usually far noisier than the fame of those who are really great and prominent.
