MR. CARNEGIE'S PITY.
"Oh, how 1 pity the boy who Is
born toe son of a millionaire!" cried
.Mr. Carnegie nt a recent dinner. And
the exclamation has started an Inter
esting debate on the relative advan
tages uf wealth and poverty In youth
It depends largely upon tho boy. of
course. Riches nro not good for the
lad who Is not endowed with energy
o chnracter. Such a ouo takes the
line of least resistance, lives In Idle
ness and will bo fortunate If he does
not go to the bad. Had he been born
poor the necessity of supporting him
self might have developed In hint in
dustry, self-reliance nnd a desire In
umotint to something.
On the other hand, a "boy of tin
usual ability Is Jiot to lie pitied by
.Mr. Carnegie or anybody else because
he has parents who can give Tilm eil
ucatlon, remove obstacles from ins
path and let him have nil his time
lor the cultivation of his powers and
the pursuit of his career.
No doubt many men who havo won
sttceess owe It to tho gonrd of early
poverty, tt tho struggles which
sharpened their wits, strengthened
their wills and enabled them to meas
ure themselves accurately through
competition with rivals.
