MISE SAVER BIG SUM
. BUT ONLY TO LOSE IT
Man Did Not Follow Principles of
Thrift-Sole Idea Was to Hoard
: Hie Money, Spending Nothing.
" A modern Midas o? Chicago, who
had accumulated $300,000 by never
spending anything, recently was de
clared incapable of handling his af
faira. He became Incapable not be
cause he amassed $300.000 but because
of the way he accumulated it. He es
tranged his family, went to bed with
the chickens to avoid spending money
on lights and lived on $55 a year.
Then he ran afoul of the puzzling in
come tax law and now his children are
to handle his beloved savings. This
modern Midas was not a thrifty man.
He was a misar. True thrift enhances
and increases the wealth of the world.
Hoarding money benefits neither the
miser nor his fellows. Wise spending
is as essential as wise saving, and
wise investment is as important as
either; wise spending for the comforts
and pleasured of life as well as the
necessities makes for the thriftiest
life and stimulates production. Wise
investment makes possible the crea
tion of new wealth.
The miser saves but spends noth
ing. He secures only the meager sat
isfaction of watching his pile o? money
grow. The wise exponent of thrift
and sound investment has the com
forts and pleasures of life and saves
at the same time. The foolish man
spends his money for what he neither
needs nor really wants; does not at
tain the comforts and lasting pleas
ures of life and saves nothing.
If the modern miser of Chicago had
spent wisely he would have had years
of comfort and happiness instead of
years of squalor and want. If he had
saved wisely he would have had the
love and respect of his family and as
sociate*. If he had invested wisely
he would have been competent to han
dle his own affairs.
"Waste noj-want Bot" ls still the
modern axiom of thrift but "want not"
must not be interpreted to mean not
wanting the things that make life
worth the living. Don't be a modern
