••WHAT CAN A HU M WAN IH>f*
The question qtiototl to th* caption I*
mild in have l>ern propounded by Anson
Phelps HAok.s. Jr. to a Vi proleeaor
riot lon* ago. Young Mr flioksa, of a
deeply rrllgtoua turn of mind, hod deter
mined to enter the ministry. He had
tried to manage the mailer with that quiet
dignity whk’h should characterise the tak
ing of holy orders, but he found II Im
possible. The fact that he was a million
aire was mifflelent to attract the albnlloti
of the rnorhkt pres* and the morbid curi
osity of the people, and'his entry Into the
priesthood was made a sensational affair.
Itlg black headline* In the papers called
attention to the fact that a millionaire
was about to become a churchman, while
pictures, spread over n liberal section of
a page. Illustrated the young man In cler
ical garb, and otherwise. The notoriety
Ihet wa worked up with respect to the
matter wan rlnful to Mr Stokes. He
found thet hie millions were *< a millstone
about his neck "I almost wish 1 were
poor,” he told hla friend the professor
"The motiey I havn Inherited Is an In
cumbrance to me. People will never for
get that 1 am wealthy. In spite of all 1
could do my advent Into the priesthood
hae heeti sensational. And yet. what can
a rich man do?”
Mr fatokeH wisely concluded to go on
with his church work, to retain his wealth
and spread a portion of li In the amelior
ation of the conditions of hie fellow man
ml for the furtherance of the work of
the church, to whkii he has consecrated
his life. No rich man could reach a wiser
What can a rich man do? The poten

In Itself Money cannot buy all things,
but aa an adjunct to a proper spirit 11 may
aid In all things. An old proverb has It
that there Is truth In wine Thai might
lie Impnnved hy saying there Is truth In
wealth. The rial and true character of
the rich man may he fully developed,
while the character of the man who Is
pinched by pov Tty tins no similar oppor
tunity for expansion and development.
Thus the posseaston of wealth makes the
miserly man more mean, grasping and
,|. -plcahle, It makes the naturally sensual
nature more sensual. On the other hand,
as In the case of Mr. Hlokes, It penults
i so of the full development of better na
j lures If Mr Smkes hid teen born poor,
