This Week's' Philosophy is Almost1' For Men Only."
When Yoiiib Truly was a lad, as
most of yon doubtless, know I
lived hack in the forks of the
creek, years ago when .leant
Hreeche- were at the height of
their popularity. My mere men.
readers will no doubt remember
them as the breeches sold during
Cleveland's second administra
tion under the guarantee "10c
a button $1.00 a. rip."
Hut like our hole-proof stock
ings and puncture-proof inner
tubes of these modern days, Jeans
Breeches would rip. No doubt
great many of my mere men
readers could also testify to that
It was on such occasion that old nroverh "A utitch In Hmp finvPK nine" np.ver
failed to make an impression.
However true as it was, the old "stitch in time" proverb has become a back num
ber, along with others of Its kind, like "pretty is as pretty does," "Spare the rod and
spoil the child, etc." Today they find no place in our modern vocabulary.
Statistics go to show that 7 out of every 10 men are dependant on relatives or
others after GO years of age. Year after year we put off saving with that old alibr
"time enough yet" "time enough yet" until old age fastens its long bony fingers about
us and we finally realize our earning powers are on the wane.
The time to begin saving Is NOW. If a man cannot lay aside something in his 30a,
and 40s how does he expect to do so in his 60s. One of the first steps is to pay cash,
at least, for your groceries. This store gives assistance in more wayB than one. For
instance, our folks call for great many ItemB sold at 15c we suggest 2 for 25c.
Others sell 20c we suggeBt 2 for 35c. Bulk goods cost about half the price of the
package form. We take pride in our bulk goods, they are kept clean and wholesome.
I may have old fashion views, but I contend that careless credit trading devolopes
indifferent extravagant children, who grow into maturity handicapped from lack of.
sound financial training and Is the reason the majority of us are 30 or past before we
learn to regulate our wanter. Suppose you try tradlng'at our store.
