A skilled man in some departments of business will earn several thousand a year, spend nothing on wine, women or horses, "yet always he in debt. Some acquaintance of his, with similar salary and a large family, lives comfortably, sends his boys to college, drives a good horse and has a snug little bank account. There are mechanic!* earning two dollars a day who comfortably feed and clothe a family of half a dezen people, while some of their fellow workmen, married, but without children. live meanly, wear shabby clothes on Sunday and are occasionally ejected from their homes for non-payment of reut. The principal cause of the difference may almost always be found in the family larder, and the family wardrobe.— Some families must breakfast either on beefsteak or mutton chops; oMu?rs will serve just as much meat and make it just as palat...
