Mistake la Too Much a General One
In Neglecting the Present for
the Future.
Presumably every young mar
lcnows, ns a physical fact, that he can
do nothing next year which he cannot
In some degree, do today. He will not
grow wings or overcome the law o<
gravitation or subsist without food,
But he Is always prefiguring a future
in which his mind will operate differ
ently. The time will certainly come
when he realizes that there is no fu
ture. but only an Indefinite extension
of today. The Important question If
whether that time will come enrlj
enough In life to do htm any particu
lar good.
A lazy man cannot possibly make
himself Industrious in the future; 01
a tippling man, sober ; or an extrava
gant man, economical. If It Is done
nt all he must do It at an immediate
present moment—at some "right now 1"
No man ever saved a penny In the fu·
ture, or ever will. He lias got to save
the Denny In his hand at the moment
or he will be broke to the day of his
death, the Saturday Evening Post In
sists. That Is clear enough to any
body who will think about It. To save
the penny In hand lie must resist the
temptation to spend it. Imagining
himself next year as resisting the
temptation to spend a handful of pen
nies will do lilin the same good that
the drunkard gets out of Imagining
himself reformed next year. Every
year that he does not resist weakens
Ids ability to resist.
This spending business Is us much
a matter of habit as tippling. It Is
wltliln the knowledge of everybody
who hns the ordinary elrclo of per
sonal acquaintances that, after a cer
tain time, the man who lives up to
the limit of his Income—which, about
nine times out of ten, means a little
beyond—accepts that bs a normal eon
I dltlon and Just automatically spends
I whatever he gets.
At twenty a man lives largely In an
I Imaginary future. At thirty he seems
; still to have fairly Incalculable pow
j ers and opportunities to draw upon.
At forty he begins to realize what he
fully knows, probably, at forty-five—
namely, that he has already spent his
future, tn the sense that he has large
ly shaped and fixed it ; so that It will
contain nothing essentially different
from what he lilraself hns already put
Into It.
If he ran realize by thirty that he
is spending his future every day It will
be a good thing for him.
Cooking by Instinct.
In the kitchen of an old monastery
in France a group of British women,
ail of good education, are cooking and
scrubbing and washing up all day long,
and they have been doing it for many
months. The way they cook potatoes
Is a thing to write poetry about, and
the French soldiers who have eaten
them will tell you that they want to
go back to that monastery, which Is
uow a hospital, because the food is so
good. Not only do those womeQ cooks
of the educated classes cook well, but
they are economical.
Another English woman, who before
the war knew nothing aboùt cooking,
Is a past mistress la the art of making
apple dumplings, as many an English
soldier, as well as a few English sail
ors, will bear witness. ""— «
