If You Are About To Furnish A Souse, do not spend all your money, be it much or .little. Do not let the beauty of thin thing, and the cheapness of that, tempt you to buy unnecessary articles. Doctor Franklin's maxim was a wise one - "Nothing is cheap that we do not want." Buy merely enough to get along with at first. It is only by experience that you can tell what will be the wants of your family. If you spend all your money, you will find you have purchased many things you do not want, and have no means left to get many things which you do want. If you have enough, and more than enough, to get everything suitable to your situation, do not think you must spend it all, merely because you happen to have it. Begin humbly. As riches increase, it is easy and pleasant to increase in comforts; but it is always painful and inconvenient to decrease. After all, these things are viewed in their proper light by the truly judicious and respectable. Neatness, tastefulness, and good sense may be shown in the management of a small household, and the arrangement of a little furniture, as well as upon a larger scale; and these qualities are always praised, and always treated with respect and attention. The consideration which many purchase by living beyond their income, and, of course, living upon others, is not worth the trouble it costs. The glare there is about this false and wicked parado is deceptive: it does not, in fact, procure a man valuable friends, or extensive influence.

That milked at noon furnishes the least; it would therefore be of advantage in making butter and cheese, to employ the morning's milk, and to keep the evening's for domestic use."
