When a chance came, he took it, or, not taking, thought he was half a fool. The boy he had been came to look so soft and starry-headed that he shook his head and laughed, thinking of the good things he had missed.

No matter, though, what the grown man learned, the dream was in the boy, like a green, high-growing shoot, the dream of goodness and happiness and neverending love and true, right meanings. When a man lost it, he lost something that went to make life worth living. He lost something good, if foolish, and half his grown-up scorn of it came out of disappointment and
