THEIR DIFFERENT WAYS.

She sought her "rights,"
Roblied by some "cruel chance of life's delights,
With a dissatisfiei and restless soul,
With a half logic, which she counted whole;
Earnest, no doubt, and honest; not unsexed,
But hungering and querulous and vexed;
With starving instincts in a fruitless frame,
And with an itching for the sort of fame
Which comes from the mere printing ef a name,
She clamored for her rights; showed solemn craft;
They only laughed.
She did not seek hr "rights."
She dreamed not of some path to mannish heights
But followed nature's way aiid deerr.ed it good.
And bloomed from flower to fruit of womanhood.
She loved the "tTrant"; bore her noble part
In life with him; and thought with all her heart
She had her rights.
She held that something men and women meant
To be unlike, but each a supplement
Unto the other; 'twas her gentle whim
He was not more to her than she to him.
And little children gathered at her knee.
And men -'
Would die for such as she.

DO RICHES BRING HAPPINESS?
Some Very Rich. Men Say Tliey Do Not.
But Wo Have Hot Heard of One of
1 hem Civins Up His Riches,
WEALTH IS VANITY.
Russell Sage: Riches, ; like ev everything
erything everything else in life, are all vanity
j and vexation of spirit. Few peo peo-j
j peo-j pie have any idea of the many in
conveniences which wealth brings.
Those who have will never ask
such a foolish question as, ''Does
wealth bring happiness?"
First of all, there are the beg begging
ging begging letter writers. Once let peo people,
ple, people, think you are rich, and before
a year has passed you will have
received from people you never
before heard of requests for loans,
gifts and offices of profit sufficient
to exhaust the combined patronage
of all the lord chancellors Great
Britain ever had and to break the
Bank of England.
A rich man is compelled to be
constantly in the public eye. Pri Privacy
vacy Privacy is practically impossible for
him. The public is curious to
know more about him, telling how
he opens his letters and puts on
his shoes, and what he has for
breakfast. An incognito is an im impossibility
possibility impossibility for him. Everybody
knows him aridhis entrance into a
shop is often a signal for an addi addition
tion addition of at least 25 percent to the
price of any article he may desire
to purchase. These are a few of
the many reasons why most rich
men would probably give a nega negative
tive negative answer to the question, "Does
wealth bring happiness?"
HOW IT BRINGS HAPPINESS.
Andrew Carnegie: Wealth can
only bring happiness in the sense
that it brings us greater opportu opportunities
nities opportunities of making others happy.
Great; wealth is a sacred trust
which the man who possesses it
should hold and administer to the
best possible advantage for the
benefit of his fellow men. The
truest happiness indeed, the only
happiness in this life worthy of the
name is to make others happy;
or, at least, by improving their
condition in some way to make
them happier than they otherwise
would be. When we';have ex exhausted
hausted exhausted every other so called pleas pleasure,
ure, pleasure, that of bringing the look of
joyful surprise to the eye and the
words of grateful happiness to the
lips of others remains perennial.
The many ways in which ,a rich
man can produce gratifying re results
sults results are self-evident. Wealth will
enable its possessor to feed the
hungry, clothe the naked, endow
free institutions of learning, es establish
tablish establish free libraries, found hospit hospitals
als hospitals and do countless other good
works. It will enable him to en entertain
tertain entertain his -friends amid pleasur pleasurable
able pleasurable surroundings and help them
to the enjoyment of some happy
In this way, and in this way
only in the power it confers of
making others happy can wealth,
per se, bring happiness.
GENERAL SUMMING UP.
In connection with the words of
living millionaires, let us hear the
words of the late George Peabody,
the great philanthropist. He once
said to young people:
"Bear in mind that to be truly
great, it is not necessary that you
should gain in wealth and import importance.
ance. importance. ; Steadfast and straightout
truth, fearless and undeviating in integrity,
tegrity, integrity, and honor never sullied by
unworthy word or action, make
their possessor greater than world worldly
ly worldly success or prosperity. These
qualities constitute greatness."
As a fitting conclusion to this
article, let us put the question to
the wisest and one of the richest
men that ever lived King: Solo Solomon
mon Solomon and get his answer. He says:
"A good name is rather to be
chosen than great riches, and lov loving
ing loving favor rather than silver and
gold. Let us bear the conclusion
of the whole matter. Fear God
and keep his commandments, for
this is the whole duty of man."
