Be Economical.
;The'man who, commences early' life to
practice economy, is: always a successful man.
Those who take care of cents soon have doll
lats. The small, uatiece. , ..e,ary expenditures are
What keep so many men poor, and at toil. all' .
their lives. It is really . astonishing .to find.
how few men and.wiimeit think it a duty to
be economical when. the world goes snioothly
and prosperou , ly With them. Whilek it .is
I rare to find a person who would- not - . terh 'to
be rich, it is easy folind pemns with.ahun

Some love display, and will .even run. into
,debt to gratify their foolish, passions. Others
- go on the principle } if living . while they can,.
and banish all thotthts of bad times, sickness
or old age. Others : again, contract bad .or
expensive habits, and rather than make an at
tempt to , •et, rid of them, submit to their tyra
ny,' and le.i.elve themselves with a plea that
they are neee'ssary to the full enjoyment of
life. But the full enjoyment of life consists•
inliVing wisely and rationally. 1 Tratisient

path through life will' be lighted by continual
sunshine. This year ma*. be a pro4)erous one,
