We usq ;the tool or training to produce more"f?oods or money or both. It is true thrift. . If, however we spend that "five dollar ' gold piece for bon oons or -theater tickets or something wejuse up without getting anything productive in return, we are throwing the seed away- - . . : 4 Five dollars spent for topis . may easily bring a return of $500 with great and Tasting satisfaction, or do ing good.; work with' tools.
