"Children," High Hat, "plenty
of food is good, but too much is
bad.. It costs just as m,uch time
and trouble to prepare food wast
ed as food eaten. Good food in the
garbage can means good money
out of pocket."
Both Francis and Frances paid
as little attention as possible, for
they were very sure that High
Hat was trying to give them a
pony and cart.
You hardly, believe that chil

useless wear and tear oi clothes,
furniture, or school books and
that Frances wasted just as much,

that would buy an automobile?
And if Frances refused to be neat
and grew up into a rowddy,
whom no man wanted to marry
and no woman wanted for a
friend, don't you see that she
would lose ever so much more
than an electric car?

like Francis and Frances, very
