Not illustrated. 1890 edition. Excerpt: ...the child and warms it into life as much as she does her acquired knowledge. The full realization of the value of the first years of a child comes only when we perceive the continuity of character building. Not alone is the little child affected by having the connection of things shown to him, but unthinking adults, those children of a larger growth, too, feel the effects. The young man just starting upon his business career sees the man of business who has accumulated capital and influence, and he is stirred with desire, or perchance with envy, and wishes in a vague way that he could be as " lucky." Show him the process by which the man made his fortune; if it be honestly won, how he denied himself luxuries in his early career, how he was prompt in meeting every engagement, reliable in every transaction, polite, courteous, and good-natured, though firm and unhesitating, and if you make the young aspirant after fortune see this you arouse him to do likewise, and earning a fortune becomes a real possible thing, not a gift of fate. Or if the fortune has not been accumulated by the legitimate process of business, but by wild and reckless speculation, the curse of our Nation, show him the inevitable process; that as the bank account unjustly swells, so surely does the conscience and honor of the man shrink, until at last money has taken the place of manhood, and the younger man's desire for the ill-gotten gains changes into commiseration of the poor deluded soul which has robbed itself far more than it has robbed the world.
