earth eternally. Yet, in 1920, thirty
six millionaires committed suicide.
In the same year, seventy-five presi
dents and managers of big concerns
ended. their lives.
Wealth cannot be depended upon
tobanlsh trouble. Woes and had
health follow riches just as surely
as they pursue povorty. Wealth may
aid in warding off some troubles and
monoy may - take one where health
will bo improved, but most rich per
sons have the same things to contend
with that frice poorer ones.
Few wealthy persons are con

annoyance or- they lack the capacity
to use their money to attain the
greatest possible personal comfort.
The greater proportion of real hap
piness in the world is among tho$
of moderate means tho man with
a family and a little homo. These
men ordinarily have their life's work
arranged with the minimum of dan
