How can they be? Do you think

Maud S. There you have the

John W. Mackay : I am surprised

wealth. I was; very happy during
my early struggles with poverty.
I enjoyed the toil, privation and
hardship I endured to win, wealth.

THE EMPIRE STATE'S GOVERNOR.
Levi P. Morton: When I was a
poor young man of twenty years,
clerking in a country store, I used
to think that if by any wild freak
of fortune I could ever accumulate
$ 100,000 I should be the happiest
man alive. Now that I possess
that amount, and possibly a little
more, I do not think I am really
any happier than in my poorer
early days. Happiness is; in no
sense dependent upon wealth, for
the fact is that when any of us
snatch an hour from life's cares to
en j oy any of its pleasures, we en j oy
them just as much whether we are
millionaires or paupers, and for the
time being we forget that we are
