A "SUCCESSFUL" CLERK '
From the Kansas City Journal.
More than thirty years ago a young man entered a New
York banking house at a clerk. He was 'duly admonished by
his employers to bo thrifty and economical and to follow the
precepts of successful men. The young man determined to
be guided closely by this advice. The other day he died In the
same humble little partment where he had lived all .these
years and his estate is estimated at more than two million
dollars all saved from his wages and acquired by investments.
He had succeeded in doing w hat he had set out to do. He died
An -Kastern newspaper in commenting upon this oatled
success remarked that this career coiild be duplicated by any
fairly bright bov and spoke of the example as one worthy of
! being emulated. Suppose says the commentator an office boy
of sixteen in two years managed to save $100. H can loan
it at legal in'tere t on good personal security or invest it at 5
per cent.' In t ' ;c f-nncr case the yield if kept reinvested will
grow to S3.2U0 by ihe time be is seventy-live; in the latter case
to $2100.' The boy keeps on savin?. His wages are raised
from time to immc. and his second third and fourth $100 comes
more easily and each in its turn is set on its way to grow Into
thousands. At flirty-five he has a salary of perhaps $2500
a year and save SI. 800 of it or more. He already has many
other hundreds of dollars at work. The savings of a .single
year kept invcVted at the' legal rate will grow to S20.()rt0 in
This is characteristic New York comment and advice. The
clerk who saved a great fortune is held up an exemplar for
universal boyhood. But there is another side to the picture.
This successful-clerk never married. That would be a costly
blunder. He lived in penurious quarters. He never took a
vacation never traveled never bought a book and never; went
to a play. All his thoughts during all these dreary years; were
centered upon his money. His only diversion was in figuring
his gains. One day passed as did the previous one and one
year was exactly like all the others He grew old with his
money hugging his bank books to his breast and dreaming
clay and night of his accumulated fortune. At last ne died and
his fingers loosened their hold upon bis money bags. P.ul he
had been "successful."
There is no moral to this career except what is obvious
to anyone of normal intelligence. It may not be difficult un-
der certain circumstances to get rich. But there are riches
that are not measured in terms -of bonds and stocks and houses
and certificates of deposits. The greatest reward of lifts is life
itself. And what is life without family friends a home culture
and wholesome relaxation? And these things cannot be se-
cured without spending money. Therefore the miser cannot
have life in its fullness and goodness. In the end lie dies lonely
and despised. This story is no indictment of the saving habit.'
Saving is a virtue that adds to the sum of comfort and enjoy-
ment. But' there is a vast difference between sordid selfish
and sonl-dwarfing greed such as this New York bank clerk
practiced and necessary and commendable thrift.
