SILENT FORCES LEAD MEN ONWARD
By George Matthew Adams
I met a silent man the other day. I went with him here and there.
We mixed with folks of every sort in a big city. We drove to the sea
and watched its calm, and then its roar as its foam spit upon the Band.
We looked upon the sun as it crept to its night nest far out upon the
great Pacific. And you who have never seen the play of the clouds at
sundown across the Golden Gate, have misBed a faint idea of what
Heaven must be like.
Such streak3 of gold, such opalled beauty! Breath-taking changes
In every variety of color. As a friend has expressed it "just God
gone on a carnival"!
Gypsies in the sky in their pinks, and geranium, magenta and scar
lets. Liquid gold-yellow melting second by second into something yet
more lovely and divine.
And I was happy with my silent friend and liked Mm from the very
He understood what I understood loved what I loved.
He was a man of the sea. He was used to storms, hurricanes and
stress. Like Ulysses, he bad been far, learned much, and become a part
of all that he had met. And mostly In silence he told it all Xo you
What a Joy to be with a big, silent man!
It was Emerson who once said that "what you are speaks so loud that
I cannot hear what you say."
It is that silent force within us that leads us on and makes us liked
or loved for wha't we are.
Our Judgments are formed in silence.
This silent friend of mine, whom I have so recently met, will be an
Inspiration to me as I walk noisy streets, and pass through the hurly
burly lanes of this speedy age.

Romance Found in Inheritances
$8,785,641,889 is Staggering Sum Bequeathed to Heirs Be
tween September, 1916, and January, 1922,
By FREDERICK J. HASKItf
WASHINGTON. D. C. Nov. 16. In
heritances as a subject of imagina
tion and discussion never lose their
glamour. There probably never lived
a man who sometime In his life did
not spend at least a little while
in dreaming of the possibility of com
ing into an estate.an inheritance, or
becoming rich overnight. The pros
pect, however remote and intangible, of
unexpectedly possessing runas not ai
rectly earned by the sweat of the brow
is one which irristibly provokes con
templation. That is the reason why wills, miss
ing heirs, lost witnesses and intermi
nable lawsuits involving estates have
so prominent a place in the stories of
literature and the stage. They are
properties of the Goddess Fortune
whom everyone seeks. For this reason
the cold statistics of the internal rev
enue bureau, recording the bare facts
of the estates which are transmitted
in the United States, are of absorb
ing interest. No personal details are
to be found because, under the law.
no such facts may be divulged. The
statistics are made available to the
researcher only in general terms, but
even their austere columns harbor an
odor of the same romance which made
the case Jarudyce versus Jarndyce
immortal, the same fascination which
makes everybody read a will case in
The figures do not reveal how the
fortunes are bequeathed. They tell
no stories of newsboys who helped old
ladies across crowded streets and later
woke up millionaires because the old
ladies on their deathbeds remembered
the kind deeds. Nothing like that
The reader must furnish all such de
tails, building up what stories he likes

The average individual would consil
er himself lucky if his mornirg mail
ir formed him that some old uncle's
will had left hira $1,000. But, within
this brief period enough money was
Inherited to make $8,785 millionaires.
The sum if averaged among the re
cipients would give 'each a fortune of
about $200,000, which is enough for a
man to live upon all his days. Forty-
-two thousand persons, enough to pop-
u'ate a good sized city, all were made
rich through inheritance in this brief
The beneficiary does not get the
whole amount of the bequest, for the
stern-visaged treasury tax-gatherer

some cases. Is as much as one-fifth.

average down so that for the wholj

that It is practically a gift for which

Deductions are of various charact

specific deduction of $50,000 for all
estates and no one who leaves less
than that sum has his bequests cur

For the period under review there
were 5.643 such estates having a gross
value of $437,471,290.
The statutory deductions Include
charitable, public and similar bepuests.
