Back in the Day ~ Rich vs. Poor

From the October 5, 1889 edition of The Richland Beacon in Rayville, Louisiana:

It is both amusing and interesting to see with what great interest some people take in others' affairs to the neglect of their own.  If one buys a horse or an article of merchandise it is astonishing to see how many are interested in the transaction.  We are often reminded of the old adage that "people get rich by attending their own business." Some prefer, however, to remain poor.

Some things never change...
