The years went on, and Ernest ceased to be a boy. He had
grown to be a young man now. He attracted little notice from
the other inhabitants of the valley; for they saw nothing
remarkable in his way of life, save that, when the labor of the day
was over he still loved to go apart and gaze and meditate upon
the Great Stone Face.
According to their idea of the matter,
it was a folly, indeed, but pardonable, inasmuch as Ernest was
industrious, kind, and neighborly, and neglected no duty for
the sake of indulging this idle habit. They knew not that the
Great Stone Face had become a teacher to him, and that the
sentiment which was expressed in it would enlarge the young
man's heart, and fill it with wider and deeper sympathies than
other hearts.
They knew not that thence would come a better
wisdom than could be learned from books, and a better life
than could be moulded on the defaced example of other human
lives. Neither did Ernest know that the thoughts and
affections which came to him so naturally, in the fields and at the
fireside, and wherever he communed with himself, were of a
higher tone than those which all men shared with him.
By this time poor Mr. Gathergold was dead and buried ; and
the oddest part of the matter was, that his wealth, which was
the body and spirit of his existence, had disappeared before
his death, leaving nothing of him but a living skeleton,
covered over with a wrinkled, yellow skin.
Since the melting away of his gold, it had been very generally
conceded that there was no such striking resemblance,
after all, betwixt the ignoble features of the ruined merchant
and that majestic face upon the mountainside.
