TEACHING THE BOY TO SAVE.

TO YOUNG MEN.
Young men arc you in earnest?
Would you do something, if you had
the means to do it? Then, let me ask
you one or two more questions. Have
you a sound physical body, and good
health? Have you a reasonable amount
of good, hard common sense? Have
you a strong and determined will? Have
you sincere honesty of durpose and
great courage? Have you an indomit
able stiek-toitive quality? If you have
these essential qualifications then your
capital stock is ample for any enter
prise. Young man did it ever occur to you
that those who have blazed the path of
progress, or filed open the prison-doors
if ignorance, brutality, and prejudice,
have been either very poor or at best
men whom society and the world at
large regard as very inconsequential.
Young men who leave a trail of glory
behind them are not the rich, not the
powerful, and not the recognized potent
factors of their day, but they are one
and all moral heroes.
Seventy-eiht years ago a young
man, with a limited education and but
little means started a small paper in
Boston. He placed at the top of this
paper these striking words: "I am in
earnest, I will not equivocate; 1 will
not retract a single word; and I will be
heard." The seed sowed by this young
man took root in the conscience of the
North, and from that seed came the
tion in regard to the mutter.
The criminal is nearly always a spend
thrift. The published records of courts
and prisons show that the majority of
the men and boys found guilty of
crimes and misdemeanors have gone as
tray as the result of an effort to obtain
money or its direct equivalent by some
unlawful means. Theft, forgery, rob
bery, and the like, are the most fa
miliar terms in the catalogue of crime.
The whole fabric of our moral life is
thoroughly interwoven with our ideas
about money and its purposes and uses;
antl yet we are doing little or nothing
of a systematic character, either in
school or out, to instruct growing chil
dren in reference to this very important
matter. It is a very common thing in
cities and villages to see boys ranging
in age from five to thirteen making a
be-line for the confectionery stores
with a nickel or dime just begged from
a parent. This carelessness

carefully in the
matter of saving.
Many can earn, but few can save. The
evidence goes to show that a bank or
trust company, usually local, furnishes
the most common and satisfactory
means of saving. The relation of these
institutions to the boy depositor is al
most alwas one of helpfulness and en
couragement. It matters not how little
the lad may be earning, so that he
saves a portion of it. Give him a toy
Everything within reach comes to

is reached, when sudder.ly the parent
becomes imbued with tho idea that it is
time to have the lad earn some money
of his own. In the typical case an ef
fort is made to force the latter to such
a conclusion, but the easy-going free
spending habit is now very persistent,
and in a short time the father may be
seen responding to the boy's financial
needs in the same old way. "This habit
of getting something for nothing, so
thoroughly formed in early life," says
the head of a great mercantile estab
lishment, "is responsible for the specu
lative tendency so common among
young men today."
It is not enough to tell the boy what
he ought to do. It is at first necessary
to find reasonable tasks for him and
then hold him to his duty till he ac
quires something of a habit and a fond
ness for work. And then it is not so
