Benjamin Franklin's Fund of $5,000
Grew to $431,383 in One Hun
dred Years.
How the dollar invested works for
the individual himself has been best
Illustrated by that first great Ameri
can teacher of thrift. Benjamin
Franklin. In 1791, he bequeathed
£1.000 ($5,000) to the common
wealth of Massachusetts and to the
city of Boston as a mark of his appre
! elation for having appointed him as
agent in England at the "handsome"
salary of £2.000 ($10,000) and to
' make his bequest really valuable with
\ his great foresight, Franklin provided
In his will that this £1,000 should be
put OUt at 5 per cent Interest for one
hundred years; that at the end of
that time 81-181 of the fund accumu
! lated should again be put out at in
terest for another hundred years and
, then the fund be divided one-fourth to
Boston and three-fourths to the State.
Let us show how well that £1,000
: of Franklin's hits worked. At the end
,of the first hundred years it had
grown to $431,883.62. It was then dl
vided In accordance with the will;
$329,300.48 was set aside for "public
work" and $102,083.11 was started on
its course of earning interest for an-
I other hundred years. That was In
1891. January 1, 1918, this sum had
grown to $267,805.15 and at this rate
of increase the fund should amount
to at least six million dollars when
the second period Is completed, and
may be considerable more. —World's

The colored caretaker of a small |
town library boasted the title of ;
"Custodian," which he had embroid

of lasting pride. Having marked
diplomatic ability, he deserved a
four-syllable title. One morning
■while he was sweeping off the front i
walk a wandering loafer, also of Af
rican extraction, paused in front of ;
him and scrutinized the cap closely.
"Cuss-todlan 1" he ejaculated.
"Down whah I came from they calls j
common niggers like you janltahs."
"Ye-es," observed the ebon-hued i
diplomat, pausing a moment from his
i labors, "dats all right In Memphis. j'
