An odd phase of the covetous spirit is that It generally sets its affections on objects of no substantial worth. The fine, ennobling things which de- velop strength of character are often overlooked in the exciting chase for the ephemeral, which grows hotter am the pursuit" is continued. Friendship is ruthlessly brushed aside. Hearts are broken Reason loses Its balance in an excitation of feeling. Talents are neglected or wrapped in a napkin and hidden.

It is a natural inclination which manifests Itself when, as children, we covet the toys of our playmates. But that is not all. It sometimes compels us to appropriate the playthings and Impudently to claim them as our own.
