WHAT is Thrift any way? It is
not the hoarding of money. It is not less
buying and less selling. It does not mean
that you should tighten your purse strings
forever. You should not close your purse
and refuse to buy such merchandise that
you would make your conditions better.
Thc Thrifty Man will not allow
his house or barn to rot down for need of
roofing; nor will he allow hts farm to wash
away for the want of good Implements.

will become a pleasure."
