A Different Proposition.
But the business of piling up dollars
.hist for the pleasure of looking at tbe
pile nnd tbe task of securing enough
of tbe same dollars to provide the ne
cessltles aud some of tbe luxuries for
oneself aud one's family, with a mar-
glu for emergencies, aro two entirely
different propositions. A man isn't
much of n man wbo doesn't look after
bis own to tbe very best of bis ability,
and, moralize as we will, there's uo
getting around tbe fact tbat money is
to a certain extent the basis of happiness ln our stage of civilization. The
bliss of poverty and the joys of tlie
simple life are all very well in poetry
and philosophy, but when you come to
bitching 'em up to practical everyday
life they won't work out to suit us. A
dry axle squeaks for oil, and poverty,
Instead nf singing gladsome
roundelays, hollers >for help.
We can't he happy unless we
a're comfortable, and oor
ideas of comfort nowadays
are such tbnt

chocolate sundaes, nnd we've got to
hnve 'money to buy 'em unless we enn
get the follow to charge it.
Aud tliis brings me around to the
main point that I want to push Into
your cerebellum. The moment you be-
.vln tn spend money you haven't got
you euter ou the road to trouble, and
It's n blamed short dlstnnce to your
