Text. "A man's life conslateth not In the
abundance ot the things he possesseth."—
Luke xli. 25.
I've had a million! Think of It! A
preacher who one night Is figuring with
a pencil and tablet Just where that
last $2 was spent last month the next
morning has a million In his hands!
Made nie think of Aladdin and his
wonderful lamp. 1 stood In the base
ment of a metropolitan bank, steel and
concrete piled up about me, an armed
guard at the foot of the elevator, the
cashier, president of my church board,
between me and the door. I was his
guest. I bad fondled packages of
greenbacks, hefted bags of gold and
looked with dull eyes at fabulous bun
dles of securities. "Now, doctor, would
you care to feel what It Is like to have
a million?" His voice quavered a lit
tle. Would I? Would a kitten lap
warm milk? Me with a million! He
piled 'em up in my arms—a thousand,
ten thousand, a hundred thousand, a
million! I didn't get dizzy. The earth
didn't lunge over to one side. And
I wasn't tempted—didn't break the
tenth commandment a bit. Wonderful
how honest a man can be with a rail
lion! I made a weak sort of Jest
about If I could get as far as the side
wnlk with it that I once held our col
lege record for the mile run. The
guard frowned at such a suggestion.
"Rich Man, Poor Man"—
Remember how we counted the but
tons on our Jackets when we were
Rich man. poor man. beggar man. thief,
Doctor, lawyer, merchant, priest.
Queer we put riches—money riches -
first "If I only had a million," we
sigh. Whoever told us money spelled
happiness? And excessive wealth—lt
must be oppressive. One of our fel
low Americans has an income of a mil
lion a week. Think of it Every week
he finds a brand new million dollar bill
In his hand. But what good does It do
him? He can't spend it. There is no
longer a tinge of novelty In seeing it
brought to him because it has been
happening every week for several
years. A million dollar gold piece in
your envelope every Saturday night!
Can't you see that the monotony of
the thing must be wearing? One good
beefsteak makes a dinner. Wouldn't
it destroy your appetite, however, to
sit down in the center of a ten acre
field with beefsteaks piled up to the
very corners? A big house Is only a
care. To fare sumptuously every day
brings indigestion. One can only wear
one suit of clothes at a time. The
very wealthy man has no goal in life
except to make more money. He's
badly handicapped. He has no worlds
to conquer.
"A* Rich Croesus."
Don't let the soap box orator fool
you. Dire poverty is awful. There's
not a redeeming thing about it. But
the wage earner is not to be pitied.
He isn't troubled with ennui, nervous
prostration, ap]>eudicltis. He isn't ex
iled to a sanitarium. He lives his life
unguarded by detectives, unpestered
by tramps, beggars and Black Hand
emissaries. The man who gets most
out of life is the one who has a job, is
interested in It and gets paid for it.
Work is the salt of life. It makes it
palatable. If life were one protracted
joy ride it would get as monontonous
as the longest 011 foot The great big
secret is to enjoy what we have. It's
much to enjoy the things presented to
our five senses. The sunlight is ours,
pure air, the landscape, flowers, birds,
the stars. If we had to pay a dollar
to sit in the public square and watch
the crowd go by we would think it a
luxury. Do you know the wealth of a
good pair of eyes? Clear hearing!
Do you walk with buoyancy? Got an
appetite, a fair memory, an imagina
tion, a few friends, fairly good health?
Then you are rich! If you have two of
those qualities, memory and Imagina
tion, you have one of the great funda
mentals of human happiness—the abili
ty to escape from yourself.
A Billionaire Every Day.
