"Do you think * hundred dollars is my share?" And I told him that it would be hard for but himself to decide. "There are so anyone _ many different ways of looking at money," I said. A hundred and seventy millions looks big at first glance. It is forty times what Jefferson gave for the Louisiana territory. It's a dollar and seventy cents for every man, woman and child in the land; it's more than eight dollars and a half for ever y household. "You can figure it on that basis," I told him. On the basis of dollars and cents. Or you can figure it on the basis of boys. "Of boys?" he questioned. Stand." It's less than fifteen cents a day for each of our soldiers and sailors," I answered, a day to give them warmth and comfort and entertainment, and lectures, and games, and the thought of mother and of God." "Fifteen cents a day for a boy: two for a quarter a day. How many boys will you take ?" And his eyes kindled. "I think I could take ten at least, he said. He drew his check book •* «< I do not under Fifteen cents out. "Figure it out and tell me the price," he said. "I want you to give them the best you've got. \Vhat is it going to cost?" "—for ten boys, for a year, at two for a quarter a day ?" So I figured it out for him: suppose you figur* it out for yourself.
