When Edward was fourteen he said

work, be found a situation and not only
kept It. but advanced rapidly. As be
grew older there was no desire In
him for money In Itself, hut for the
low er aud prominence it would give
hint. Except for the first few years
be spent In the city, be did not accutnu
lute by saving. Tbe fortune that came
to him was tbe result rather o f during
operations, for which he seemed to
have u genius.

Wilkins bad no desire to exercise the
l» w e r bis wealth gave him. He was
content with knowing that he lossess
ed it. He did not care for political
preferment; he took no interest in in
llueucing tbe course o f tbe government
When the great financier was forty
years o f age be bad reached tbe sum
mit o f bis ambition. He bad acquired
enormous power through his wealth,
but since tbe exercise o f that power
would give him do enjoymeut be bad

place. One such person will spend
years building a sumptuous residence,
which is more likely to be a sepulcher
than a home. Another will turn au

world theories for which It has no use.
Wilkins, now that he had reached bis
goal in half a lifetime, began to won
der what would be the end o f the oth
er half. A fter a continued rise to the
summit would be descend again to end
his career in the valley?
One thing he bad lived long enough
to recognize L ife appeared to him n
constant shifting. Nothing seemed to
endure unless It was inanimate, and
even that, though slowly, was continu

mountains where there bad beeD val

W hat would become o f his great for

it would pass back into the great ocean
o f wealth. But would he retain It for
the rest o f his life? Now that he had
achieved it he no longer valued It and
cared not so much what was to be
come of it as what was to become o f
him. Enough to give him the ordinary
comforts essential to old age was all he
desired. But that much was o f great
moment to him.
One night be dreamed a vivid dream.
He dreamed that he returned to the
farm and was a boy again

quired. His ambition was gone. He
said to himself: "H ere I am. and here
I wish to remain. My body is uot as
it was, full o f life. It is tired

It was a strange dream, this old
spirit in a young body. It made a
marked impression on him at the time,
but gradually passed out of bis mind
with other forgotten things
When Wilkins found that be had at
