Did Lucius Smithers Do Right?
Lucius Smithers was married b a woman who combined the talents of expert ac
countant, good housekeeper. Judge and Jury, helpful companion, detective, friend and
critic also she was a financier and a first class doubter.
Now, whenever Lucius g-ot his pay . he had to explain carefully to Mrs. Smithers Just
what ho had done with every r. nt of it. and the tumult In a National bank over a false
balance of ten cents was as nothing to the row there was ready for Lucius should he for
get about buying a two cent stamp for a letter and therefore lay himslf open to an ac
cusation of embezzling two cents for riotous living.
Even the performing lion in time outwits Its tralmr, so with Lucius Pmlthers.
One day his pay envelope, when he handed It to Mrs. Smithers, was $:r short.
He stopped her hurried questions ami sudden Insinuations by saying, modestly:
' My dear. 1 have b. en thinking of the future that might be in store for you if I were
suddenly taken away from this I f. and y ou no longer had my stt. ng arms to support
and protect you. So from now on I am going to Invest a certain portion of my salary In
Insurance. Kcally. the amount that will go tor the premiums will be no more than we
otherwise would spend In unnecessary things, and should I be taken away from you. you
will then rcei ive the insurance money and I can sleep in peace."
And from that day on I.ticiu" Smithers was a changed and a joyful man. His friends
not.d that he smoked b"tt. r cigars, and that he had lost till the p.ssitnistn which for
merly marked him. lie did la t evt n become gbximy when he one day found Ills wife
trying the off. . t of mourning good..-' against her completion.
And when lc died, il was not. .1 that a swo t, .-ei.i.e .-uii'e r. st. d upon his f.u-e.
Hut. terrible to stale, no insurance pulley was found among his effects. Diligent
search and iia.iilry revealed that ho had never lak. n cut any insurance. His wife and
friends were forced to the realization that In- had blown in the premium money instead of
paying for l isurance.
lint - Lucius Smithers had made his wife happier during the Jcars when he was sup
posed to tie paying for insurance than she had ever been b. fore. And tlnre is no doubt
that he had made himself happier.
Therefore, did he U wrens? If not, why not?
