Every body looks after the

goes Into n store he buys bin
goods like the other.! When
he wants a new shirt he does
not go from More to store and
take bids, 1 f he gets a doctor
or lawyer he pays their bills,
He never tbliiks of asking
the grocer to put In another

When he buys a cord of wood
or a bushel of potatoes he
knows he ought to pay a lit

When a couple geta married
or there is a church festival,
he cheerfully gives a couple
