TALKS ON THEIFT.
No. 37. Early Lessons In Thrift.
By T. D. MACGREGOR.
"The lessons of thrift and econ
omy are a capital to the children
of poor parents." Thlry.
Those who object to school savings
banks, it is safe to say, have not looked
thoroughly Into-the workings of these
splendid agencies of thrift.
One objection raised sometimes Is
that poor children are mortified by the
smallness of their savings as compar
ed with those of the children of the
well-to-do. This has little weight, be
cause it Is the children of the poor
who are the largest patrons of the
Every Individual has some hard
knocks coming to him In the course
of his life. The sooner the child
learns to save money the better will
be his chances for success when he
begins to work for a living. The
younger he learns the lesson of thrift,
the better his start.
In Duluth, Minn., the school savings
system is a success. One of the banks
placed in the hands of each pupil a
booklet, entitled "How Fortunes Begin
and How They Grow." It is a text
book on thrift, and undoubtedly It will
inspire the ambitions of many boys
and girls in a way that will make for
their lasting good.
