The Foundation of Nations
IN the "safety deposit" of human knowledge the dictionary there is
the small but powerful word THRIFT which means saving, success,
industry, good fortune and all else that is best for people, cities and
Thrift is "banked" happiness it is the foundation of prosperity
and the key of all industry.
Thrift poisons and exterminates bad luck, failure indolence, doubt
fear worry, and eliminates the chances of a wasted life. The moss of
misfortune, the weeds of poverty and mortgages of mistakes will not grow
on a thrifty man or his business.
It takes SUCH A LITTLE SAVING to make MEN thrifty and the
results mean so much.
People should not be as much pitied for their hardships as envied
for their opportunities, and their are more opportunities today than ever
before for the man with a little cash in bank.
Cultivate the HABIT of thrift—ACQUIRE the habit of thrift—
SAVE SOME and you will find that SUM will do so much to help realize
your ambitions. It is as easy to be so much ahead instead of that much
Buy a Baby Bond or War Savings Stamp-
It is the one MOVE you can make without a hesitancy.
