T (tvs e.<r that every true red blood ed AmerireM will (oil yotj that H pay* (o Ut thrifty. Per hap* yoa have often hfwd It said, “that It Isn't what ww Aavva that eonnts“. In my mind th# above statement la as true a* th* ftoexU* is to the pole. A person can make a hundred dollars a week and still not hare any put aside for a rainy day at the end of the month or year if they are extravagant. The spend thrift* perhaps any: “Take no thought for tomorrow for what re shall eat nor what ye shal> wear.” U’« true th* Bible teaches us that. But let* go back a little and consider everything. Perchance you Hare noticed on a bright summer day the li’tle ant how busy ft was working from nun till sun in order to get ahead a supply of food for the winter weather. As Clod made us only o littler low er than the Angela Surely wr, a* his people luive enough foresight and thought nlxmt ua to do aa tho industrious little arrt and lay op something for a rainy day. Hare yen ever notat'd wasteful people? T prermme that, yon have and on the oth. er hand noticed saving prop'*. There is as mnch difference in my estimation between saving and extravagance ax there Is between day and night. Th« rtheifty person .has never beyn over? estimated nor will they ever he in their (ru» worth and value to Amer ica and her cans**. A thrifty person makes money and spends it too, hut spends it wisely. Next beware of the tight wads for enough of them would force every business of its kfnd to he slopped throughout the great worW today. They hare money hut will not spend if nor allow it to get Into ctr eolalion. Take our bodies for nudaDee can they he strong and the appetite qoenched until some good wholesome food is eaten? And so the same ap plies to the tight wad.: if fhey have money and will not let it get iuto dr* eolation. What good will their money he to their town or city? Until it is 'put into service it will he worth as much to the town or city a« rt is worth t* the tight wad himself, practically ' nothing. Why can't we make this year a real thrifty year? We can do it if we will. Every hank and building and loan beyo In Shelby in fact every institution of that kind in tbs United States want# to recognize you as a person of thrift. Now lets not only talk thrift hut let's practice thrift during the year of TJ4, and show the world what wo can really accomplish. When you hear a person say their wanting a home will you kindly do them a favorand if they need any moo ey that they can get it fro mthe build ing and loans. And be will he able to build his mvp home and h« mnch hap pier than living in a rented luma. And so we nee thrift develop** char acter and promotes happiness. It is in deed one of the greatest of all virtues. New* of Holly Springs School (Special to The Star.) The Holly Springs school completed their first month November 28.
