One Dollar Saved Represent Tea.
.- Dollars Earned.
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings, lie mustspend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a few cents properly in
vested, llke'buying seeds for his garden, will
gave several dollars1 outlay later on. It is1
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic, .
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.
