They Should Lean to Work.
One of the common errors of
rich parents is the failure to teach
their children how to earn their
own living, so that, should their
fortunes melt away, they would
not be compelled to live on chari
ty. It is by no means an uncom
mon thing to see men and women, ++
who have been reared in luxurii,
living in poverty, serving as wait
ers or in some capacity where they Conl,

p- matter it is well to bear in mind with
