It Is, in my opinion, not very far frotu a crime to bring children up aud launch them upon life in absolute ig? norance of the best way to use money. .During my business career I have seen many children grow up and begin the ?world for themselves. I have always noticed that the child that was taught the proper use of money was much more likely to have a prosperous after career than one who had to learn the lesson by sad experience. It has been said that no man could accumulate a iortune until he had failed once in business. I am willing to advocate that theory in the case of young people who havfl not been taught the proper use of money. We had in the community a iarnily well off for this world's goods, and fortunate in the fact that the parents were exceedingly practical and sensible persons. There were half a dozen children, and when they arrived at ...
