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 tive state. 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.
