At Least It Is More Blessed
The religion of the United States
for get. 1 rations back has been consi-
derably a religion ofg savings banks.
There i- something of course to be
said for that religion.. It pans out
pretty well in a good many particu-
lars but into many minds in the last
ten years has come like absolute news
the realization thinat it will not save
the word. Accumulated capital comes
in hardy but that it not enough.
unless there is something else to
hold the minds of men a fire will
sooner or later break out in them that
will reduce all savings to ashes. That
is an old story. The lesson of it is
that the most important inheritance
that children get from their parents
is spiritual and mental. Dollars can-
not make them safe in the wortl, but
character can. With character, dol-
lars will probably be useful; without
it, they won't. To teach one's son to
1 give may easily be a better provision
' for him than to teach him to save.—
