WHO IS STINGY WHO IS GENEROUS
Mr Smith believes in being generous When you
come to his house his table is loaded with all the good
things he has He has more than enough of bread and pre
serves and coffee and many other things for all that eat
there Every ofie eats all he wants and then a
lot is thrown away Smith is not careful with his fire
wood or his eggs or chickens lie uses them all generously
like a king No one can call him stingy If a tramp
asks him for a dime or a quarter he will give it to him if he
has it Smith does not worry about next year
yearHe
Hell have to borrow money before he gets his crops gathered
this summer but then if he has good luck he can pay
that back and have a little ahead to keep him going till next
summer Smith would like to send his children away to
College to get a good education but he never has
money enough He would like to give a good sum to
build a new church house or make the school house
better or subscribe to keep the school teacher thru
the winter but he was so generous with his eggs and
chickens and corn meal and preserves and money that he
hasnt any left for the church or school
Jones is a different man He is just about as smart
as Smith and has a farm that is no better But the
neighbors call Jones stingy Jones is careful with the
food at his house They dont throw any away There is
enough for all but just enough His preserves last
twice as long and he sells some Mrs Jones uses only half
as many eggs and sells the rest They dont cat so
much chicken at Jones cabin but sell more They arc more
careful of the firewood and sugar and cornmeal eVery
thing goes farther and more is left to sell They call ones
stingy If a tramp asks him for a quarter he says II No I
cant afford it Jones doesnt spend any money for to
bacco He used to like to chew and smoke but he says it
costs too much Now watch Jones a bit His oldest
boy is in College this year and his oldest girl is going next
Hes got a big barn and good sheds for his cattle and tools
and is going to put up a new house after a yt ar or two He
has a little money always ready for the church
house and pays his share to keep the school teach
er two months extra When he hears about those millions
of people starving to death in China he takes a few dozen
eggs and a chicken that would have tasted pretty
good on his table and brings them to town and sends a
dollar to keep some bright little girl from being
sold for a little food or dying of hunger Jones has a little
money in the bank to use in case the crops dont turn out
so well or some one gets sick Jones becomes a prosperous
man and after a while is Squire Jones He is no smart
er than Smith but he was willing to be called stingy for a
good while so that he would have something to be generous
with Now tell me who is the best man to have
in your neighborhood Smith or Jonas
