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.
