Railroad Co. By-Laws. Only An Idea.
Bulwef says poverty is only
and idea in nine cases otrt of
fen. Some men with ten
thonssfid dollars a year suffer
nrfcf e for want of means than
others with five hundred dol
lars. The . reason is, the rich
man has artificial wants. His
income is" ten thousand dol
lars a year, and he srlffera
enough in being dun'n'cd for
unpaid debts to kill a sensitive
man. A man who earns a
dollar a day and does not go
in debt is the happiest of the
two. Very few people who
hare never been rich will be
lieve this : but it is true. There
are thousands and thousands
with princely incowes who
never know a minute's peace.
Thero is really more happi
ness among , the workingmen
in the world, than among
those who are called rich.
