And a casual oh;orver would hclleve that the former course was chosen. and that those who kept open made profit out of those who closed down. It ls conceded to be one of the tralts of human nature that a man wanta most that whlch la hard to get, and thls tralt, so common in the famlly of Adam and Evo, aeemed yesterday to comc more than ever to the surface and to rernaln there.
