birthday present Onthe evening before the event he andhis father walked downtown on their big shopping expedition At a ladies shop thsy turned in and Joe rattling his coins in hjs pocket began to look abqut for a sufficientlyfine gift that could be had torhis savings There were all sorts of enticing things llk stockings and blouses and purses and perfume But all of them cost dollars and Tell you what said his father you buy what you want for mother and Ill make up the differ ence I dont want to do that I want to buy it all with my own money otherwise it wouldnt really be a birthday present from me And ha walked sturdily up to the saleswom an Will you please show me what youve got could buy for 84 cents I want something for my mother Ten minutes later he had bought a collar and cuff set for which he paid exactly 84 cents Joes gift was agreat success but perhaps not even his mother real ized just how fine a gift It was It represented the savings of weeks and the ability to make cheerful choice between rigid limitations It represented a sensitiveness which made him refuse to offer as a grift something which did not come whol ly from him Such qualities as these are worth cherishing They are worth more than money in the values which they give to life They are an in surance against the unhappiness which comes of all the subtler forms of dishonesty With the Women of
