Pay on" what you owe, and thou keep out of debt
This may be bad poetry, but depend upon it, it
is excellent sense. It is an old saying, that the
debtor is a slave to the creditor. If so, half the
work! enter into voluntary servitude. The univer
sal raee to txiv on credit, ts a nervHja evil m this
country. Many a married man is ruined by it.
There waa 1 Hue Thombury, who was an indus
trious man. He had got as good a farm as lay in
the nurth paruh of Apple-bury. Hut uiubrtunately
he gave way to the prevailing fashi of getting in
debt, and a bad life be led of it. At thirty he owed
82.000. Ilia farm yielded about that sum. He
could not live wifhout purchasing some things, and
ts all the money be could raise wen? to pay princi
pal and interest on his debt : be bad every thing to
buy on credit. So at the year a end, with interest
and cost, and no lose of time, and extra charge for
things because he did not make ready pay, tie was
just as deeply involved a the year before. Thus
embarrassed, dunned and uuiincd, was poor Tbora-
bury tor twenty years. -
Not so with bis cousin, Ned Foster. He vowed
he'd owe no man. The produce of bis farm wa
about tbe same a that of TnornouiV ; hut as be
was not forced by duns or executions to sell it out
of sravnu, he got the highest pTtcei as he paid (
thing when he got them, he had them 2 er cent,
cheaper aa ho paid neither iuterest nor cwd, and
lost no time in running to borrow money or see his
creditors, he Tiiid up 190 year, and lived quite lis
well as bis couHin, and liifuutely happier.
Whon poof.Thonibtiry aaer a man ruling jip

y, however, took the five dollars for U and vu
highly delighted at having discovered such trea

then went and collected another parcel of this pre-
cious metal, which he brought to the store of
Messrs. Curtis At Co., Goldsmiths, and then offer
ed it for sale, in the expectation of getting a high;
er price for it than be did for tha first parcel. Borne '
person in Curtis store also took tne article to be
Eoki, from its appearance, but suspecting that the
oy did not get it honestly, both the boy and tbe
metal were taken to tbe police otlice. Un being
questioned on the subject, the boy at once told
where be got it, and said be took it because the
owner did not seem to set any value on it. Mr.
