Teaching Thrift to the Children.
: An asset which has made France
One of the roost powerful nations in
civilization and which explains her
marvelous powers of national recup
eration, is that of universal thrift.
The great middle class the small
farmers and merchants and mechan
ics is comprised entirely of indus
trious, hard-working men and worn
ten, who have reduced the business
of living weU and cheaply to a
science, and who, above all, have
the hubit of saving abnormally de
veloped. A recent report from Consul Mil
ler, at Rheims, after showing that
borne government bends to the ex
tent of five billions are held by the
industrial classes, illustrates how
France inculcates thrift at the very
basis of her population by setting a
hi:h premium upon its observance
in her school system.
It is a part of the curriculum of
each school to teach boys and girls
the advantages of accumulating
money, by depositing; in government
savings banks, regardless of the size
of the deposit. Under certain con
ditions, the government will even
furnish money to pupils with which
to open a deposit to provide an in
come in old age. Bank books with
ten francs credited in each are of
fered as prizes for certain degrees of
proficiency, and it is demonstrated
to the bofdtr the amount this sum
will reach at 3 per cent compound
interest by the time he or she bus
arrived at the twenty first birthday.
Leading citizens of communities
cheerfully contribute these first
. deposit books as school prizes. The
teacher, in most instances, acts as
banker for the pupil until the sum
deposited reaches a specified limit,
when it is transferred to the bank.
Other plans and incentives are
loptid, all toward the end of ac
quainting the student, at an early
age, with the value of money, the
virtue of saving and the ease with
which it is accomplished once the
babit js formed.
The idea back ot the system is one
which could be profitably put into
ur public school system. Thrift,
as other qualities, can be taught by
object lessons, and its advantages
are more likely to be thoroughly ap
preciated by the pupil at a time
when his or her mind is in a forma
It may be argued that the home
is the proper place for the inculca
tion of such a trait. It mav be,
But the fact remains that many
American homes neglect their op
portunities in this respect. The
etrongest proof is found in the pov
erty and misery of which there are
ample specimens in every com
munity. ro one will denv, we pre
eume, that much of it could have
been averted had the cardinal lesson
of thrift been properly impressed
in seasonable time. Atlanta Jour
