Debt is a great force waster,
because very few men or women
can be heavily in dept without
worrying or being anxious. If
you are so deeply involved that it
is impossible to extricate yourself
without going through bankruptcy,
then take your bitter medicine at
once, and start again, no
who criticises or denounces you.
Pay your debt in full afterward,
when you are able. Uet nd oi au

taken an unfoHunate step, retrace
it if you can.
Tfvou have made a mistake,
remedy it as far as it is in your
power todo so; but when you have
done your best, let the thing arop
forever. Do not drag its skeleton
alone with you. Never allow what
is dead and should be buried to
keen bobbing up and draining off
your life capital in worry or vain
regrets. Do not do anytnmg or
touch anything which will lower
