FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY,
It wonlcl seem as if, when the income
had "been earned, no law should be allowed
to limit or check the direction in
which it should go, and yet the most lawless
are bound, and in spite of themselves
have to meet certain obligations
entailed by the very fact of possessing an
income. Chafe as one may the actual
necessities of daily life are inexorable,
and he who would have a quiet mind
for work or enjoyment must plan for
them wisely. Here, as in everything
else, the law, recognized as just and
accepted deliberately and with clear
consciousness of what such acceptance
implies, ceas.es to be a burden, and
becomes rather an inspiration and stimulus
to continued and better effort.
The laws of spending are simple, and
yet confusion reigns in many
they have never been presented
clearly enough to compel understanding
and action. The same wise man quoted
in a former paper on "Earners and
Spenders" detned them as "the law of
choice, the law of amount and the law
of method," and though different arrangements
could easily be made there
is no better summary for the spender of
any income, large or small.
The law of choice1' has a comfortable
sound, seeming to put one at once
on an independent footing, yet when
definition is attempted is simply that
"as we cannot have everything we
must give up some things for the sake
of having others.1' Then arises the
question of what to give up, and here
comes in one of the greatest differences
in capacity, among both men and
women, that of seeing things in their
true order. For many, great things are
made always to wait on little things,
and the smallest accident is suflicient to
spoil a day and make a whole family
uncomfortable and unhappy. So in expenditure,
a small need is allowed to
rise up and dwarf far greater one3. The
law, and the only law that can hinder
such disaster, is a distinction possible
for all, that things which end wholly
or mainly in privileges for the body
should be limited in favor of things
which tend to the higher joys of mind
Self-indulgence has grown to be so
much a part of our easy and prosperous
American life that we are very apt to
resent the necessity of ending it even in
slight degree. Yet often a good might
be accomplished with ease if we wero
willing to do without some small luxury.
A set of books, a picture, a microscope,
anything earnestly desired by some
one in' the family to whom its
possession would mean progress
in a larger intellectual or spiritual
life, could often be had if some
table luxury were set aside. Cake,
for instance, or deserts on any day but
Sunday, could be dispensed with, with
no real loss in comfort or health, and
their cost will be found a large portion
of the weekly table expenses. To go
without is not agreeable, and yet with
limited income this is one certain means
of obtaining many coveted, and unless
one will go without, unattainable possessions.
The "law of amount" is even more
binding, and implies not only "Live
withinyour income," but " Live so far
within it as to save something every
year." It i3 the fashion to sneer of
small savings and economies, a fashion
:hat makes us one of the most lavish
Tafious on the face of the earth, yet the
only road to real independence lies here.
And because money will be spent for
many things, each one of whicli standing
alone seems perfectly reasonable,
and yet sums up in the total as ruinous
extravagance, the final law becomes
mpst essential of all. -
The "law of methpdH then, mdaning,
not only the accurate keeping of accounts,
but a fixed determination be-
forehand just how much shall be spent,
is the final essential of all incomes. It
is not easy to settle upon what are essentials
and what non-essentials. Still less
is it easy to decide before experience .
has given the necessary lessons just
what portion must go lor food, fuel,
light, etc. And because food at least is
bought with less calculation than any
other household necessity there is a
popular belief that calculation is impossible.
Where it is attempted an immediate
su picion of meanness and
skimpiness seems to attach itself at f
once. Even when the calculation is
made there is constant temptation to
break through the self-imposed bounces.
The temptation becomes stronger
where there is promiscuous hospitality,
a simple meal seeming an ofienso to
one's guest, and thus the point of almost
inevitable loss and waste is
maae by custom and false feeling a
still more troublesome and almost hopeless
one with which to contend.
Out of all such entanglement the "law
of method ,T will sooner or later lead. -Decide
once for all, and then be adamant
to all undermining of resolution.
It will mean in the beginning discomfort
and probably mortification, even when
good sense assures one that the course
ip the only honorable one. But with
every month of continuance it grows
easier. Wants will remain, but more
and more they take their true place and
become subsidiary to higher needs. The
conscience and resolute will applied to
one phase of daily life have insensibly
ennobled and strengthened the whole
character, and small as were the beginnings
there is incalculable gain in the
end. If prosperity comes there is less ,
chance of its bringing with it the
and insensibility to others'
needs often found in its train. If it
fails at least the higher prosperities remain.
" What is excellent
As God lives, is permanent."
Out of all the drudging discipline the
soul may come finer and truer for such .
labor, and the day of small things mean
a final and fuller capacity for the Infinite.
Messrs. E. S. Early and S. E. Hines,
who have just completed a saw-mill in
the mountains above Wolf Creek, East
Tennessee, furnished the following particulars
of a recent ground-hog hunt:
.. A few mornings ago a man living
near Wolf Creek was attracted by the
barking of his dogs, and going to where
they had treed on the side of the mountain
he found his game in a hollow log
lyiug upon the ground with the entrance
lip-hill. He procured a long pole to
reach the game, but this being too short,
he crawled in to lengthen the pole and
hung his toes over the end of the log.
In this position he lost his hold, and
down he went into the log on top of the
ground-hog, and a lively fight bean.. ,
The man's superior strength prevailed,
but not till he had been bitten in eleven
places and badly scratched and scarred.
But the trouble had not ended, but the
man had, and wrong end dow.n at that,
but he could not crawl backward up-hill,
so he was a prisoner, and in a critical,
not to say ridiculous position, with no
means of escape. Fortunately, at this
frightful juncture, the family became
uneasy and went out to see what had
happened, and wero horrified at the
discovery. Finally, after a round of
cursing, praying and crying, the victim
was cut out of the log and "set right
side up," clothed and in Ins right mind,
but the ground-hog was dead.
